As it happens quite often with me….one moment I’m knee-deep in work, the next moment I’m knee-deep in design goodness after spotting a simple tweet:
Recently I’ve come to appreciate a good stamp, after endlessly addressing several Christmas cards, thank you notes and — bills. Naturally the word “stamp” caught my eye, leading me off to peruse Sweet Harvey’s Etsy Shop. And when something strikes my fancy I investigate further, taking me to her gorgeous website. Its design just screams: “Hi, I’m Brandi, I’m cool, easy to talk to, love to laugh and I’m pretty good at designing cool stuff”. My kind of gal.
In true, stalker-like form, I click through to her Facebook page, Pinterest boards and another website I hadn’t heard of. Have you heard of Dribbble? Yes that’s three b’s! Looks just about as cool as Brandi is. I follow them all. You’d be wise to do the same.
And I finally settle on her blog (I have a tried-and-true process to my inter-web stalking). It’s fresh, her designs pop off the page and makes me want to create new project just to have her design something beautiful to accompany.
In the meantime, I might have to settle for a few cards. Cards are fun and frankly, a lost art. Send one to the friend you haven’t tweeted at in forever. Or to your grandma who can’t hear well enough to talk on the phone, but sure does appreciate a “Hello!” And if I ever get to purchasing a fun stamp, I’ll have the perfect setup.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Perfect for — whatever!
How could you not love turtles? I mean really?
And of course you know we love chevron.
Another recent style obsession (for some reason I can’t figure) — hearts. I’d stamp the crap out of my next bill with this. Can you imagine?!?
This should really be a t-shirt design. I’d wear it every day just like my Superwoman costume.
Pop on over and check out Sweet Harvey. You won’t be disappointed.
