  • I’ve been starting out my mornings lately, before I dive into my custom design work for the day, by working on a few theme ideas that keep floating around my head. This one in particular for photographers is becoming a favorite.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not sure when I’ll have themes available again, but the idea is something that’s been pulling at me for sometime now. I love the idea of giving you all a more affordable option when it comes to working with me. For now, these little projects with no set timeline are a great exercise for me to ease into work and to jumpstart my creativity for the day.

  • 28 .

Today I turn 28 and it feels like I was turning 22 yesterday. As a teenager I always felt older than my age. Now as I approach 30 that somehow sounds older than I feel. Is that what getting older feels like? Always out of sync with the number you actually are? Maybe it's the expectations and emphasis we put on the number itself that makes it feel that way. The idea that we should be somewhere specific, hitting some goal by each age. .

But all things considered, I'm actually fully embracing 28. 30 still feels miles away but I actually feel more at home at 28 than I did at 27. I think I've been rounding up to 28 for most of this year when people ask my age. I'm not really sure why but 28 seems to fit more than almost any other year so far. .

It's an age where I'm feeling more confident in myself, in my business, and with my place on this planet. 28 will undoubtedly bring major change to my life, since this will be the year we move into our first house, get married, and I will solely rely on this little business of mine. .

There are a lot of unknowns, as with any year, but also a lot of exciting things to look forward to. If 27 is any indication, I really have no idea what's ahead of me but boy, I'm ready to get this party started!

  • Welcoming June and everything it has in store for us. Check your emails for a new calendar background 💕
  • Happy rebrand and website launch to Kitschen Cat! 🍴
.
@jessievanslyke’s vision for her food blog was to make it more personable, approachable and playful. We created sweet little kitchen sketches for each category and added bright, cheerful colors to create an inviting and engaging space for her readers. Every page was designed to showcase her recipes in an accessible and easy to find way. .
Jessie was an absolute dream to work with and we had a blast putting together this new brand and site for her.
  • Gearing up for a new brand and website launch for @jessievanslyke’s cooking blog and going back through her brand material has me obsessing over these hand drawn kitchen brand elements all over again!🍴

When we first started working together Jessie and I talked a lot about making her branding more approachable, personable, and honest. These drawn elements make me think of little doodles you might find in an old cookbook or on a recipe card, like you just happened to be in the kitchen with the person that created the recipe. Maybe that’s because I draw on every free scrap of paper in the house 😆 but there’s no denying the effect these little elements have by giving such a personal touch to the brand as a whole.

Can’t wait to show you all what we’ve been “cooking up” these last few months!
  • Celebrating our upcoming marriage with all of our closest friends and family this weekend. Can’t wait to marry this man! 
Happy Friday!
