I am continually updating my website to better explain my process and what I do. One thing that I often fail to convey is that I do custom cake toppers, maps and illustrations. 

The process is that you come to me with an idea and from that idea or ideas, I create three concept sketches. Below was a cake topper that was all about bringing San Francisco and San Diego together as one. 

After the three sketches are proposed we select one and develop it further or combine it with some of the ideas from the other concepts. 

Then once all the details confirmed, I create it!

This is also how the process works with illustrations and maps! See a few examples below.

Holly Jolly Craftmas

Madeline Trait

I like trying new things and thus this is how I find myself getting involved in various projects and events. Which brings me to the Holly Jolly Craftmas hosted by Artsy Heartsy Events. The concept was a one day pop up that brought event and crafty people together. This totally appeals to me because I do a bit of both with my event design service and then my celebration accessory product line that I am continually developing. (stay tuned for some new fun items in 2014) It was a great event where I was able to meet talented makers, beauticians, artists and event professionals. I look forward to see what develops for next year!

Here are some photos of my set-up. I always like to use these events as an opportunity to experiment with decor as well as merchandising. The best part of this display was my sparkly leaf backdrop which I plan to expand on in the future or event do a DIY post on.
