Wanderer. is a project I started last week, and I am so glad I did. Like a lot of designers, I get caught up in doing work that I don’t always have complete creative freedom over, so this project is to help keep me grounded and sharp with design.

So this wedding was pretty great, not only because I got to design with a ton of creative freedom, or because I was the maid of (dis)honor, but more importantly because it was my sisters wedding.
The guestbook was comprised of vintage postcards that I collected over the years, and each guest wrote a nice little note, which now lives on Megan and Dustin’s side table, tied up in a pretty navy bow.
The favors were these sweet vintage hankies which came in handy when all of the wedding guests started crying!
The stereotypical wedding menu was totally outdone by this amazing antique mantel, which my mom painted and stained to better match the rest of the pieces. I added hand lettering with a chalkboard pen, my sister and I walked around our house grabbing knickknacks to up on the little shelves, and voila! the menu!
My mom and I hand painted the custom corn hole game (also pictured below, and also, I may or may not have hit the groom with one of the bean bags, oops!)
The card box I think was the first wedding decoration that Megan purchased. She found it when my family and I were walking around Renningers Antqiues Extravaganza, and she knew that it would be perfect for her wedding, and it was!
I also hand drew the bar menu (pictured a couple photos up, the signature cocktail, which was AWESOME.)
And just for fun, the wedding party! It was such an honor to stand beside my sister on her big day!
A close friend of mine wanted to get a thoughtful gift for his friends that were due to have their first baby, so he asked if I could design a couple cute boyish/campingish (i’m aware that “campingish” isn’t a word, go with me, people.) These illustrations were then printed out on canvas paper, sewn together with a cute back, and stuffed with fluff to make an adorable mobile to go above baby Levi’s crib.
One of my steady freelance clients is an amazing church called Central Life. I have had the honor of designing many of their weekly church series designs, as well as special event designs, but one design definitely takes the cake for being the most fun.
A few months ago I got the opportunity to work with Brevard Worship, a band with the mission statement of “Worship Through Music. Worship Through Service. Worship Through Fellowship.” These guys are not only super talented, they are also kind, funny, and fun to work with!

Amanda of Amanda’s florist approached me about a logo re-design which she wanted to keep some of the original elements, but change it up and make it a little more current. Here’s what we came up with!

Remember this post of mine from way back in February about tattoos & typography? Welllll I haven’t done my tattoo yet, but I did get the chance to design Shannon’s (of Vine and Light from my last post.)
It’s such a huge compliment to be asked to design a tattoo, because it means that the person likes your style enough to have it on their body forever! I am designing two other tattoos right now too, so maybe you’ll start seeing me around… On bodies (why am I so creepy?)
Shannon of Vine & Light Photography approached me a few months ago about doing the design for an editorial shoot that she and dear friend, Mijanne were planning. It ended up being so fun to just get to do whatever designs I wanted and to show a fun side! Make sure to check out Shannon’s blog for more photos and a full list of vendors!
