Healthy Dinner for The Work-At-Home Mom Graphic Designer

Salad. Because you sit on your buttocks for hours
in front of your Mac.
Edamame. It's cool just saying *edamame* and it reminds you of
when you lived in the village.
Yellow Pepper. Always have contrasting colors in your food.
Almonds. Crunchy. Chew them carefully and your salad
will last longer.
Baked & Breaded Fishies. Protein. (you know you love 'em!)

Design Post: Barter with Belle Jewelry

When Claudine asked me if I would consider bartering with her, I screamed YES!!!!
 Here are some of the logo sketches I did for her jewelry company:

(Click to enlarge.)

If the color palette looks familiar, it's because
I swiped it from her HOUSE.
I'm sneaky like that.

She went with this as the final design.
It had the right amount of beadiness & whimsy.
(Here it is on the business cards I made for her.)
Locals: Claudine will have a table
at the Women's Expo on October 6, 2011.

And in return, she gave me these gorgeous, glittery necklaces!

This one was inspired by PBS's "Downton Abbey."
It makes my bodice snap & my heart flutter just thinking about it.
I'm working on a swap for matching earrings....

Many thanks to Vicki, (my Bus Stop Alliance) for modeling.
