A Star is Arriving Baby Shower Invitation

I was so happy to receive a message from the gorgeous Sadiyyah all the way from North Carolina. She saw the A Star is Arriving Baby Shower Invitation that I designed for Briana & Michelle on my blog and thought it would work perfectly with her shower theme.

It was a pleasure to get to know her and learn about the fabulous baby shower for her and her fiance. I illustrated caricatures that matched perfectly with Sadiyyah and her fiance’s likeness and captured her fashionista love of pink & purple style. The customized invitation is perfect for a glamorous diva!

I received the sweetest message from her when the design was complete: “Thank you again Desiree for the invitations. I'm pretty sure this won’t be the last time I need you to make something for me! I really appreciate everything you've done and I know they are going to come out looking wonderful!”

Thank you Sadiyyah! You make my job amazing! Have a wonderful day at your baby shower!

House Watercolor Paintings

I'm so excited to share these custom commissioned house watercolor paintings. An illustrated house is the perfect way to pay tribute to your home! Capture the nostalgia of your childhood home in a gift for your parents or siblings, celebrate a new home in a gift for your spouse, or surprise a friend with their favorite piece of architecture.

This makes the perfect gift for so many occasions...
House Warming
Mothers Day
Fathers Day
First Home
Parent/Grandparent Gift
Realtor Closing Gift

These paintings were ordered as Christmas gifts.  The first is from a daughter to her parents, of the house she grew up in. They had recently moved, and this was the perfect nostalgic gift for them to remember the house where their children grew up.
The next is from a wife to a husband, to celebrate their first house together and so many memories they have built starting their family.

Safari Birthday Invitations

It was so wonderful to meet Jenny all the way from Australia. Her adorable little boy is turning the big 1.  She loved the Safari invitations featured on my blog and wondered if she could order them in time for her little man’s big birthday celebration. I was happy to offer her a design service to create the invitations that she could print herself in Australia. Here is how cute they came out:

It was also great to meet Ana from New York, who also loved my safari invitations. These safari invitations were inspired by all things travel – passports, boarding passes – and of course cute animals! Instead of a photo front, she requested animal illustrations. I think it came out adorable! It has been wonderful to get to meet from all over the globe and share my designs with them. Thank you! 

Commisioned Watercolor Painting

I had so much fun creating this wishing dandelion watercolor for Crystal. I started with a small loose sketch style to get a  feel for what she liked, then finished with a larger painting.

Here was my small sketch version:

Here is my final version:
 Thank you Crystal for the opportunity to paint this for your family. I'm so touched that it has a special meaning to you!
