World Reclaimed – Home & Garden Goods

World Reclaimed – Home & Garden Goods

For the past few months, I’ve been busy working on branding World Reclaimed – a home & garden goods from the talented duo Caitlin & Owen of Aloe Designs. It’s been their dream to start up their own online shop with goods Owen makes from reclaimed wood. He recovers materials from Aloe Designs projects and makes beautiful things out of them. It was a fun project to work on. I was responsible for creating a brand for the products (logo, typography & colour expolorations), photography & styling and web design. Caitlin and I worked closely together bouncing ideas from each other & gathering so much inspiration from all things that inspires them. I really love working this closely with clients especially when I know I’m helping them visualize their dream and helping them make it happen. Check out their beautiful goods...

Rifle Paper Co.

I am obsessed with Rifle Paper Co. I love everything about this brand. Rifle Paper is a stationery & Gift brand located in New York city. Their handpainted illustrations are so beautiful and whimsical. I recently bought their Rosa Print and when I received it in the mail, their beautiful lookbook was neatly tucked in the box. I had to share some of the pages from their lookbook as I am just in love with everything they...

Luna’s Art Splatter Birthday Party

To celebrate Luna’s 4th birthday, we decided to have a Jackson Pollock Art Splatter Party!  It was a success and the kids had so much fun. This year, I made Luna in charge of her guest list. She told me the names of all her best friends at preschool & daycare and so those were the friends we invited.  She’s at an age where she now has best friends and we wanted her to be surrounded by her best friends at her party. The party was held at 4 Cats Art Studio in their Steveston Village location. It’s such a great art studio for kids and a great space for a party. They offer different types of art parties but I thought the Jackson Pollock Art Splatter Party would be really fun. Though, it took the kids a little while to grasp the idea of splattering paint onto a canvas and that it was ok to get paint on their hair, face and everywhere! By the time they loosened up, there was paint everywhere! The kids first started off working on their own 9×12 canvas. They were taught to splatter the paint onto the canvas – a technique Jackson Pollock became famous for. Then, they moved on to work on a 6ft x 3ft unstretched canvas for the birthday girl to keep. This was so fun and the kids went wild! Also, the kids get to go home with their own 9×12 canvas painting they worked on. Luna gets to keep the unstretched 6ft x 3ft canvas which her and all the friends worked on together as a group....

Luna’s 4th Birthday Invitation

It’s that time of the year again where we celebrate another year of Luna’s life. This month of October, she turns 4! My little girl is growing up too fast. Last year when she turned 3, we had her birthday party at Jump Gymnastics. This year, we’ve decided to do a Paint Splatter Party and Luna Can’t wait! Me being a designer, I always like to design Luna’s invitations. I kept the Paint Splatter theme to the invitation by scanning a painting Luna did at preschool and changed the colour to pink & yellow (the colour theme for her party). And instead of using pretty envelopes, I used gift bags instead (with no gusset). They are cheaper than envelopes costing only $2 for 30 bags! I love spoiling Luna and her friends on her birthday and I wanted them to feel special when they received Luna’s invitation – like a little special package made for them.
