I designed this simply gorgeous logo for the lovely Melissa, of Sweet Pea Interiors. Melissa wanted something clean, fresh and simple for her new venture, which is all about designing fabulous spaces for little people.
Pop on over to Melissa's new blog as she begins to share words, photos, colours, designs and beautiful things that inspire her.

Ok this is just GORGEOUS, and what a fantastic idea.. a mums 30th tied in with her daughters 2nd birthday by combining the theme of a teddy bears picnic and a high tea. It can get expensive when your family members all have birthdays at the same time of the year like mine, so I am very impressed with this idea.
A pink, red and white colour palette never fails to wow me, so pretty.
This party is the beautiful styling of Pauline at the Party Studio.
PS My 3 year old sons birthday is 7 days before mine, if we ever had a combined party I think it would have to be a chocolate theme..one thing we have in common that is gender neutral. mmmmm.

Circus / Carnival themed parties have always been very popular, I did a circus train theme for my son's 2nd birthday a couple of years ago (top pic). There have been plenty of gorgeous circus / carnival theme parties popping up lately..and Im loving how the theme keeps on being re-invented with everyone doing it in different styles or different colours.
I fell in love with the circus party ideas of Sweet Paul via Hip Hooray (thanks for introducing me girls!). The seal cookies are too cute..I love that they double as decorations. I also adore the spotty bunting cake, its simple yet so effective, and one that anyone could have a crack at..it doesnt have to be perfect...thumbs up for the textured icing look!
There is certainly no shortage of circus themed decorations, lollies, partyware etc out there...its just a matter of narrowing it all down! I came across this cute pop up clown card from Poketo today, this would be a fun invitation idea.
So naturally now I am very keen to try my hand at the circus party again for one of my boys birthdays..but this time vintage, I will have to come up with a way to give it a unique twist (fun, fun, fun).
I cant get enough of vintage right now, Im going to do a vintage 'boys toys' theme for Max's 1st birthday, I will show you some of my inspiration for that later ;-)

Its nice to have the pleasure of re-designing a website that I originally designed as it shifts focus, grows into something new and even more fabulous, or just wants a makeover to stay fresh and interesting.
This is the new look Trifle website.....classy hey !
At Trifle you'll find over 60 designers hand picked from around the world, a collaboration of established high end designers, niche companies, handmade artists and amazing start-up companies destined for greatness.
I designed this gorgeous, vibrant logo for Veronica of The Paper Sweet, aiming to reflect the beautiful detail and colour of Veronica's handmade cards and tags.
Handmade cards are much more personal and unique, The Paper Sweet cards and gift tags are lovingly handcrafted using paper, felt, material and ribbon, and they will be available for purchase on etsy from July 1.

Mothers day was perfect... it started with Jack and I making a chocolate cake (while daddy mopped the floors and little Max napped), and ended with my family sitting around the fire at mums farm, toasting marshmallows.
I always go in and check my kids, give them a kiss and make sure they are tucked in before I go to bed, and on sunday I did the same, but stayed for a while just watching....overwhelmed with love, so precious, I hope I never ever forget the details of them as babies, their smell, the sweet baby breath, little snores like a cat purring, perfect little squishy faces, gorgeous kissable lips..too cute.
I hope my boys and I grow to be as close as I am to my mum, and remember boys...you are NEVER too old for cuddles for mum!
