Custom Design

Whew! It’s been a busy summer so far. Hubby and I moved to a new place (which is amazing and wonderful, and I may or may not occasionally look around and wonder how I’m Grown-Up enough for this!). Turns out, unpacking with a toddler around takes a little longer than before. However, we’re making good headway and my work area is starting to take shape. It still has a ways to go, but I can get things done now, and that’s a start.

So, a friend commissioned me to make two onesies for some of her friends who are Croatian. This means I get to play with foreign languages again. Happily, Croation uses an alphabet similar enough to the Latin Alphabet, that I could just type up the fonts in Word to use as a template.

Mali Mado means “Little Bear” which is a play on the friend’s last name. And Prva Velika Gospa means “My First Velika Gospa” which is a big, annual Croatian celebration.


I love how they turned out!


A Patriotic Pachyderm

I can’t read the word “pachyderm” and not hear it in the exaggerated accent of Timothy Mouse (from Dumbo), as when he’s encouraging Dumbo to stop crying:

“Remember, you come of a proud race. Why, you’re a… a pachyderm, and pachyderms don’t cry.”

Great flick! And a great design. I think this design might be my new favorite. Not only is it just plain adorable, but it’s a total crack up! Check it out:
