another cute handbag

Ok. So apparently I'm a little obsessed with handbags lately. I ordered this one and just got it this week. Super cute. MadeByNanna, is a cute etsy shop in the Netherlands. And she has lots of other fabrics to choose form. I'm crazy about polka dots and love the jute handles and trim.

holy cuteness!

Seriously. How cute is this little typewriter necklace. I've seen these charms before, but not with a real little sheet of paper! Totally adorable. And can you imagine if you could customize the message!? The possibilities would be endless. How cute would a little love letter be for your sweetheart. Or a letter to mom. Love this idea. Necklace can be found at

my new spring clutch

I was super excited to get my new clutch in the mail yesterday! I ordered this adorable pouch from over the weekend. Cant wait to use it. I love the mix of textures and prints and the color combo is a favorite of mine. Great shop and it arrived unbelievably fast. Which is fab, because the hardest part of ordering online is waiting for it to arrive, right?

my work featured in Box Bottle Bag!

I just picked up my copy of Box Bottle Bag - The World's Best Packaging Design by Andrew Gibbs, founder and editor of He rounds up probably the best collection of package design anywhere. This book is full of great inspiration and gorgeous work. Very inspiring. And if that's not enough...two of my design projects made it into the book!
