Our beautiful new Baby Boy !

On Thursday 15th October at 2.57pm we welcomed our gorgeous Max Christopher into the world. 7 pounds 6 ounces, 49 cm. He is healthy and happy, and his big brother Jack just loves him. I am recovering from the ceasar (quite and experience ! no more kids for us now ! two beautiful boys will do thanks) and still unwell from a cold Ive had for weeks, but I am just so happy and so in love with my new man, I can't stop looking at him, I know mothers are bias but I really think he is so beautiful.

Thankyou everyone for the congratulations and wishes. I will keep you updated.

Diggers and Dump Trucks

Since our new little man will be arriving in one week and I'll have my hands full for quite a while afterwards, Im trying to get organised for my eldest little man's 3rd birthday party at the end of November. I just LURRRVVEE planning / designing / preparing for kids birthday parties and I dont want Jacks party to be quickly thrown together in a rush due to the arrival of his little brother. So Ive designed the invites (see above) so they are ready to print and send and Ive scribbled down all the details for decorations and food etc.

As most 2-3 years olds do...Jack loves diggers and dump trucks. So thats the theme this year, using a vibrant colour combo of yellow, orange and charcoal / grey. A few of the things on my list include; safety / traffic cones with big bunches of balloons tied to them, plastic construction hard hats for party hats, rocky road boulders, danger tape fairy bread (choc and yellow sprinkles in stripes), traffic light cookies, tin pails /dump trucks filled with lollies that tie in with the theme or colours ie Jaffas / flakes (as wood)...and more...ooh Im excited !

Im wondering if its possible to make chocolate crackles grey so it looks like cement - like use white choc and a mix of food colourings ? anyone know ?

If anyone has any cool ideas for a digger and dump truck party feel free to leave a comment :-)

Another fantastic logo I had a great time designing, for another lovely client! (have I mentioned I love my job much ? lol)
I am in love with this logo! I just love modern-vintage style. From the moment I heard the business name and was given the design brief for this I was so excited !

Frock garments are for your precious little girl's special occasions, or.... just because, they are carefully tailored in New Zealand, combining retro flair with a modern edge.
