graphic design: Southern Harmony

A talented friend is part of The Women's Chorus of Dallas. Bam.


They are a non-profit group who serve the community by raising money through their performances. And with an upcoming concert by the Secret Sisters, she was charged with designing a logo for the event...and wanted some creative help. I was recruited.  


Here's her email:
Coming up in September, there will be a concert by the Secret Sisters (from what I understand, they are kind of country bluegrass) and all of the proceeds from the concert will be donated to TWCD.   So I have been tasked with designing a logo for the event. This logo will then be plastered all over the web, posters, mailers and most other media you can think of announcing the concert. 
 SOUTHERN HARMONY, a benefit for the Women's Chorus of Dallas

Um, right up my alley!  A few of us got together, brainstormed on:
Feminine, southern, bluegrass....and with the vintage, cute vibe on the Secret Sisters website....


 Here's what we came up with.

A little song bird on an old-timey Shure 55 Elvis Mic. Lots of fun.

Queen of the Kitchen

There's a new gal in my kitchen.

She's pretty cute.  And loves to do the dishes. 
She has a lot going for her.

My mom got me this cute little brush to scrub dirty dishes. Makes the job much more fun :) 


Bonus:  Reminds me a lot of these gals...


It's a whole lot of fun having little things around your house that make you smile.  
Surround yourself with treasures that you like even if they don't go together--who cares if it's not the way the magazines say you should decorate?

Take it from me, the goof who has hippos and dolled-up dish brushes that help with the washing.

Sketch: Tractor

Thankful for this little guy and his twin who keep our grass alive.

They have to work overtime in the summer.


{And the green grass grows all around all around....}


Deep thoughts, today :)

July Calendar

Dear one,

from the bottom of my heart to yours, I present to you 

     your very own handy dandy snazzy-jazzy 
desktop calendar for J U L Y.

I had some fun with paint and Sharpie and poof....

parrot feathers, elements of cactus, earth worm, and ever-running sprinklers that wizz around in my head 
[or...maybe just in our yard].


As always, click on this image to make it bigger, then save it or make it your desktop image from there.

Hope you enjoy :) Happy Fourth!
