Wine Label Friday // Custom Design

Today....I'm hungover.

Hangovers hurt much more as an adult than as a college student. I'm not sure how I could bounce back so fast after a bender. These days it takes me a minimum of three days and about 5 gallons of water to fully recover and feel like a human. Getting old(er) sucks. Okay, it kind've does. I won't knock it completely. But, the paychecks - yeah, those are nice.

How appropriate that I'm posting wine labels on today's blog post. Saying wine doesn't really affect me but the word that rhymes with fin and starts with a G...well, now I want to take a least I didn't dry heave.

Anyhow, I've never actually even met Jessica. My BFF Emily who last year moved to Shanghai recommended me to design her custom labels. So, we properly were introduced through Gmail. That intranets is a beautiful thing.

Speaking of beauty - do you like any of these? The top one was the winner winner - cheeseburger dinner. Crap. Now I want a cheeseburger.

Never Too Old // Bachelorette Party T-shirt Design

Seriously, I'll never get to old for Bachelorette Parties.

Never. You think I will - but I most definitely won't.

Especially when they consist of cramming a cabin in the middle of nowhere with 12 amazing girls. Especially when it happens to be Miss Barb Smith getting married. Especially when the girls are some of the nicest, funniest women you've ever met. And Barb, I love that girl. I love when you can see the love between two people and everyone celebrates it! And I haven't even met her fiance, Chris yet! Her wedding is next month in July and if the bachelorette party was any indication how much fun the wedding is going to be - I hope I don't get arrested!! :)

Since it's not allowed that I post any pictures from the bachelorette party. I'll just show you the t-shirt design that all the girls rocked on a plum t-shirt. I would post pictures of the t-shirt - but, ummm - they don't quite make the PG cut of this blog.

The top design is the winner winner - chicken dinner.

Which one is your fav?

Handsome Gavin // Baby Announcement Design

I'm just gonna say it.

I love designing baby announcements.

There is nothing better than designing the first thing a mother sends out to "show off" their new baby.

I don't get to see Brooke as much as I would like to. It actually has been quite some time since I've saw her and many of my fellow Purdue DZ sorority sisters - but the great part - we can always pick up right where we left off. So, I was thrilled to design Brooke & Grant's announcement of their handsome Gavin.

Take a look!
