I know this terrific esthetician that I have being seing for my skincare for years! Her name is Mahby Moradi and she has her own practice located at Chez Fa Fa's on Crown Valley, Mission Viejo. I have to admit that she is the best and I won't seek out any other!
Well, I had managed to finish the last touches on her website Mahby Skincare and she and I are very happy with the outcome. Mahby suggested that we post a few certificates up for new customers. Please visit her website for more coupons! She specializes in permanent makeup, the ancient art of threading, microdermabrasions, electrolysis for those stubborn hairs and so much more! Mahby will be sure to take care of all your skincare needs and pamper you while you are there!

Well, I have been working at it.... Here are a glimpse of the patterns I will be coordinating together for my Ditzie Couture kitchen apparel and for my Ditzie Baby line! I am so excited to see these coming along and hope to have them up on my online store hopefully in a couple of months! There will be fashionably couture aprons for both Mom and her little girl as well as kitchen items and of course the baby stuff! OMG.... There will be baby bibs and adorable baby bloomers! Creating for the Ditzie Baby line has been too much fun! Looking forward to showing you! XOXO- Andie


The finished packaging finally came in! Here, I managed to take a few pictures as to how ASD Living is coordinating their line of kitchen placemats and napkins. These hot pink and leopard table settings are pretty wild!

Lanelle Byars, a fabulous interior designer, had approached me to design her new stationary! New career changes brought out a new vision. Above is a design for her letterhead, envelopes, business cards and a fun little mailer label to get her started! She had another little idea for a promo card with which she will add a seperate series of vellums and card stock to this little nifty promo card I designed for her. I will see if I can get a hold of one when she has them ready to mail out here soon! Stay tuned .....because we will be working on her website too!

I always loved this pattern of mine with the retro diva kitties and with their major diva attitudes! I had just gone online and came across these great pictures which are mostly manufactured by Now Designs. It's just one of those days walking down memory lane and feeling a bit nostalgic! Several years back I had done all my designs by hand with a paint brush and in guache. Thank goodness photoshop and illustrator had come along..... but I still desire picking up that paint brush once in awhile! Maybe one day!

I've been a busy girl lately! I just can't tell you how how my nights have been spent coming up with new greeting cardz for my Ditzie "Couture" Cake Shoppe! Like the original section of greeting cards on my current site, these will have a fresh new look. Hopefully they will hit the spot for all wonderful occasion's that will say it best....with a card and a nice batch of cupcakes! Yummy!

How fun to have a placematz come in a so cool looking box like this! ASD Living got a little Shag Inspired when they asked me to design this rather complicated box for their colorful line of cotton placematz and matching -or mix it up- napkins. For the napkins we just came up with a simple handtag and they will be creatively tied with black ribbon! Can't wait to show you how this box really folds up when it gets printed!
And here are the hand tags that will coordinate with the placemat box just nicely. Dinner is at eight o'clock and bring a friend!

Ditzie Cakes is going through the process of being redesigned! I still love the color pink and what would a cupcake company be without pink cupcakes? Ever since I created a gift basket for the St. Joseph's Auxillary auction last November (posted here on my ditzie blogspot) with these fabulous couture tanks, cupcake tattoos and couture looking invites, I just couldn't resist in making ditzie cakes move forward to a new "coutured" level. So, as soon as the new stationary is redesigned and the new website has made it's new makeover.....I will be sure to inform you! Can't wait to show you what I have planned! It's going to be fabulous!

Here is where my Engineering DNA {thanks to my dad who is an engineer} kicks in! My brain was put to the test as it processed the 3- dimensions as a box folds and unfolds by virtual imagery. Not bad for the first time creating a little more than a simple box. I was happy the way this fun tote box looked as well! This Tote loves to go places!


The idea for the Nature' Kitchen towel was just based simply on cotton! I absolutley love the way cotton looks when it is ready for harvesting and the sillouettes of some of the pictures I came across where just stunning! Beautiful tufts of fluffy cotton nestled inbetween crinkled woody leaves that twisted and turned outward. Well, I have a tendancy to make these curl and swirl similar to the eerie Tim Burton , so eventually I was persuaded to hack off those wicked branches.
Now, to make them look fun and playful was the next step to capture in this design. The rest came naturally.....no pun inteneded! I love green and I love black and especially together! When the final was printed on a natural brown kraft card stock, it blended all together wonderfully!


Another great project for ASD Living {Art + Style + Design = Living}. This is a sleeve that will wrap itself around 100% Microfleece blanket. We didn't want the sleeve to be an average generic look so I tried to make the sleeve as creative and stunningly beautiful as I could....
This particular process had gone through many stages as you can see below. I originally came up with a good clean graphic concept.The idea was there but Lisa Wells, the director, had just a little different image in mind. Eventually we got it just right!
And here you go......This is the final result for the 100% Microfleece sleeve that will wrap itself around a warm and cozy blanket.


ASD Living {Art + Style + Design =Living} had asked me to design their first project of many for their premiere line! I was thrilled to take on the task and thrilled to know that there were several of my textile designs chosen to be part of their new line. Yes, of course one of them just had to be the infamous cupcake design as well. In the future here, I will see if I can link you to the ASD Living catalogue and highlight a few of my designs. Right now, luckily I had a little time to create a post or two, and then I need to go back to work! Packaging design has opened new doors as a designer and I am truely grateful for more work and wonderful opportunies with great clients!
