One of the most amazing “side effects” of running this business of mine is the relationships I have found through it! I have made friends across the globe, who share my same dreams and goals, my inspirations and design style, and encourage me to grow, believe in me, and understand this blogging / business / design world I live in. One of these ladies is Melissa from Melissa Creates. She has amazed me since the first time we “met”. She is in Orlando, so not too far, funny, honest, beautiful, and one of the sweetest ladies I know. Over the years, I have gotten to know her better as I have been a part of the yearly conference Blog Fete which she runs, and I spent this past January in SLC, Utah with her as my roomie for ALT Summit. She is always there when I needed to bounce ideas, or tell someone about a project I am working on. I appreciate her more than I can say, so I am thrilled to be able to join on in this fun idea from Sharon and Carmen for an “Blog Hop” Baby Shower for her!!
The way it works is this… We have each come up with something we would contribute to her baby shower if we were all local and are sharing those items on our blogs! I decided to do a printable art print of “Bow Tie Shapes”! If you know Melissa, or her shop, then you know that Bow Ties are Cool. =) This is an illustration and watercolor design that I had a lot of fun with, but I mainly thought it may be perfect in her little man’s new nursery (and hopefully other places you guys can think of too…Im looking at you fashion friends!!)!
Now be sure to hop around to these other blogs and see what they have come up with (HINT HINT… It’s All Super Cute!)
