Summer necklaces by Twiggy and Lou

Summer is on its way and we feel it a little more everyday. When I started to design this jewelry collection, only a few colors and designs were on my mind. Today the possibilities are endless and the fun keeps growing. On a client request, here are a couple new designs and some others that you already know. Find them in my Etsy shop.

Twiggy and Lou final logo and handmade business cards

When I created Twiggy and Lou, my vision of the brand was limited to my first creations and I had no clear idea about what its image should be. So I opted for a clean and simple logo but nothing that represented me. Now that Twiggy and Lou became a real brand, it is important that my logo reflects my work. Let me tell you that it was not an easy thing but with the help of the right graphic designer and a lot of back and forth, I am now very happy with the final logo design. I wanted something very simple and delicate with a modern feel and it's what I got! Thank you to Robin Freni from Freni Design for working with me on the project. Robin is based in California but doesn't let the miles come in between good communication and execution. I am really pleased with the whole experience and will work with her again as well as recommend her to other business owner out there. She is the real deal :) To check out her work click here.
Once the logo was done, I ordered some custom stamps because I wanted to make my own business cards. Call me crazy but I love handmade things!! Here is a step by step to creating my own cards.

here is all the materials I needed to stamp and emboss my bags and business cards

 i ordered some custom stamps but you can go with any design you like

 to emboss, I needed a watermark ink pad and some gold and silver embossing powder

 the stamps

 here the watermark ink pad (sticky ink)

1) stamp the bags

2) sprinkle powder on top of your stamped area

3) tap the bag to collect extra powder

4) dry up the powder now sticked to the ink 

 dry in seconds

 I love the look of embossed symbols or letters 

repeat 1 to 4 on business card

Room Crush

I like this room so much that I don't know where to start. So many red accents very well placed in this all white room. The perfect one for a little boy. My two favorite things in here would be the deer hear on the wall and the tree branch which brings a natural feel just by resting on a wall. All images were found in mysecondhandlife.indiedays.

Room for dreamers

What about going back in time and being able to step in that room at the proper age? The first thing I will do is to lay in that little bed and let the diffused light fill my eyes and soul. Zzzz..... The entire room is lovely and I found it on House of Turquoise.
