New blogs for the sisters

New blogs for the sisters

This past Christmas we all decided to make crafty gifts – Kim knitted us gifts and I promised to redo Kim’s and Kat’s personal blog layouts.

Lets start with Kim’s: she had her layout since 2008. Even though at the time she liked vector-y green foilage she has been begging me to make something that was more her style. Kim is our knitting/sewing machine so I wanted to capture all of her craftiness with a hint of vintage style. I would like to point out little details like the button images near the comment links. Or the graphics on the quote box and comment box… this layout was seriously fun to make.

Next up is Kat! Her last layout was of Kanon so she was ready for a facelift on her blog as well. She liked Kim’s hobby/craft layout and wanted something to also reflect her style and hobbies! Which lead me to make this:

WordPress is so amazing…coding simple layouts like this only takes a few minutes and I loooove it! Hope the layouts truly show their personalities!

I freelance under the name Domo Box with my dude. We were hired to come up with different concepts for their Halloween bash. I just wanted to posted the collaboration. I did the print, and flyer work and my dude did the illustration work for both concepts.

First concept is art nouveau style to mimic an old wine label.

The second concept we provided was to have a more playful style. The club is adjacent to Howard Hughes’ graveyard so we played the graveyard theme up a bit.

Which concept do you like more? Option A or Option B?

Recently I moved onto more personal and freelance jobs. I went ahead and tried to make little cute stationary and thank you cards for my sister Kim. She is going to be starting up school again at U of H and I thought this would be a nice gift to have waiting for her return. Although since I am posting the pics on here….I guess it is not a surprise anymore. BUT I needed to post something for August annnnnnnd so there you have it! Everything is made in vector style to match her blog layout I made last year.


Everything is super tiny and runs with green color theme plus die cut edges. I am obsessed with matching things up!
