Back from babyland

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

It’s been about a year since I last posted to Jenuineblog. I took a hiatus from blogging to keep up with the busiest year of my life. Here’s a quick recap. Last year, I was juggling my life as an Art Director at a large advertising agency in Los Angeles, running Jenuine Paper Company, and buying a new home in Manhattan Beach. And in the midst of all that, I was surprised to find out I was expecting a baby! Last November, Emery Louise arrived and life has never been sweeter.

Here is a peek at her adorable birth announcement.

Emery’s nursery is decorated with elephants and I wanted an announcement to match. I’d love to say that I designed this card, but I actually┬áI found it on

For a new mommy on very little sleep, sites like Tiny Prints are great. There is a large selection of great designs and the price per card can’t be beat. Believe me I tried and I’ve stopped doing photo cards for clients because I’d prefer to refer them to Tiny Prints or Minted. They will even address your envelopes for you.

I’m happy to be back and have lots of projects to share.

Rate it! Love it!

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010 is a great site for affordable and quick invitations. All their invitations are created by indie designers which they find through “design challenges” held throughout the year. I just entered my first design submission for the “Here Comes Spring” Birth Announcement Challenge.

This sweet design was created for a custom client last year but I thought it would be perfect for this challenge.
