Fit Foods with Claire Logo Development

It was a blast to work with Claire as she launched her healthy meal prep business, Fit Foods with Claire.  She has an amazing vision for her new endeavor and it was fabulous being able to establish such strong branding for her message!  We delivered several permutations of the logo in her custom palette, so that she can use it everywhere!  Thanks again to Claire for this wonderful opportunity!



In progress… logo design. cha cha cha!

It’s been a blast this month working on a logo design for a local small business, she is a rockstar, and can’t wait to share more about her.  We’ve nailed every milestone, and we’re on track to deliver final files in a couple of days.  We are even producing additional artwork to extend the brand.  Lucky we have an artist/illustrator who does fabulous work.  Looking forward to dishing about this project in more detail!

Expanding local work!

Very excited to be starting a new project to expand my local work. These new prints will be featured at Leesburg First Fridays and will be showing at a downtown gallery where they will also be available for purchase, stay tuned for all fabulous details!

Happy Spring!


On Saturday I was at a small local arts and craft fair from 8am to 3pm, it was a quieter day but still wonderful to chat with new customers, neighbors, and especially the other vendors. It’s great to collaborate at these events with my colleague and friend, this is her groovy shop Fresh Cut Designs LLC. We share event space and created a really lovely little boutique shop for our work.

Check out these quick snaps of our shop space from our event on Saturday, love how it turned out!  If something catches your eye, go check out my etsy shop here: Vine Ripe Designs on Etsy


NEW SHOP: So excited to announce that we have relaunched on our Etsy shop, we are currently selling art prints and photography: CHECK IT OUT!  Super excited for what’s planned later this year.  New works are in progress and we’re also getting ready to schedule several fairs/events for Summer and Fall.

CUSTOM DESIGN:  We will continue to take custom design projects, our Etsy shop now functions primarily as our boutique shop. Custom design requests should be made by contacting us here to: GET STARTED!

sneak peek: rock’n’roll-red-white-and-blue Valentine’s cards, for kids!

Valentines2013_YouRock_blogIt’s rare that I share a work in progress, but I’m having so much fun I just couldn’t resist!  As someone who is fairly indifferent to Valentine’s day, it was a bit amusing to find myself DIY-ing some Valentine’s day cards for my son to give to his classmates.  It’s certainly sweet for children to learn to love one another, because that’s what the world needs now, is love sweet love.  Right? 🙂

I’m pretty stoked at how my guitars turned out, the design is all original work.   I’m not done just yet, still mulling over the wording and the size/color of the hearts.  I’ll print these at home on matte white 8.5″ x 11″ card stock and cut them with my cropper.   4 cards per sheet.  16 kids/4 cards = 4 pieces of paper.  I love those number$!

Lots of cool projects…

So there’s lots of really cool stuff going on! It’s a busy time at Vine Ripe these days and it’s been so much fun! and i just love that i’m able to work globally and create things for people all over the world!

The last 4 weeks…

  • 2 girl birth announcements
  • 1 birthday boy invitation
  • 2 birthday girl invitations

Currently working on a website and 2 logos, I just adore the variety of the design projects, and if you have an idea that you need help with, please don’t hesitate to GET STARTED!


Happy New Year 2013!

So excited about 2013, there’s so much on the horizon! I’m so thankful for the design work that continues to keep me busy! In the last month I finished a concert flyer invitation and tickets for a little girl in Australia, a LEGO themed birthday invitation for a soon-to-be 8 year old boy, and now I’m working on a baby announcement for my dear friend’s little girl who was born in November!

I’m currently accepting custom design work, and the process is really easy and fun, so please contact me to get started! 🙂

Wishing you all a very happy new year! Cheers to 2013!
