Well Hello, October!


October is my favorite month of the year (probably not a coincidence since it's the month I was born). While I'm always a little sad to see September go, a month full of candy, crisp air & celebrations is a-okay in my book! To properly welcome the new month, a new downloadable desktop background ...

To download, right click on the image & open it in a new window.  Save the image to your computer and set it as your desktop background.

And some news ... For the first time ever, I've entered in a minted.com design challenge for wedding invitations. minted is an amazing, budget-friendly online resource for wedding invitations, stationery & other paper goods featuring works by indie designers.

In case you didn't know, I'm a wedding invitation & stationery designer by day. Designing and branding my clients' wedding days, businesses & personal correspondence is something that I really love to do, so I've decided to whip up some designs and give this challenge a shot. Right now, we're just in the selection & feedback portion of the contest, so you can check out my two designs over here, but I would be SO grateful if you wouldn't mind sharing the link and 'liking' the designs (if you like what you see, of course)!

I'm almost positive that the official voting process begins on the 8th of October, but I will keep you posted! Feedback on the designs is welcome :)

P.S. I also have another exciting project in the works, that should make a debut later this month so stay tuned!


  1. YES! I'm off to change my desktop background...

    I'm also about to register on Minted, so I can see your pretty designs.


    1. Thank you love!!! I'll even take partial responsibility for your soon to be discovered Minted addiction ;)

  2. What an awesome job! I'd love to see the invite you designed!
