New at Two Brunettes: Benjamin Row

We have not posted in quiet some time, and that is because we are so busy, that this blog has gotten totally neglected. Good problems, but bad. Two Brunettes has some major annoucments coming up, I can't even stand it any longer. We are growing and just super excited to share the new changes coming up! Here is one new blog launch from today! Benjamin Row. It is a sweet blog that is going to be about Momma, Baby and Beyond. Rosie, editor of BR, was so sweet and amazing to work with. As most of you know Two Bru adores all things kid related, so this was especially fun for us to take on! Go check it out.

Window Shopping at Two Brunettes: Lemon & Lavender Website

When Ashley of Lemon and Lavender emailed me about creating a pattern for her website and print materials I was all over it. I love her adorable style, and beautiful work, did I mention the girl is living in AFRICA! She is a very talented designer herself, so I knew I had to get it just right to make her happy!


 I created three different patterns and with some tough decision making she settled on number three. This also happened to be my favorite. A couple weekes later Ashley emailed me again to design a website for her. I was extrmely eager to take my pattern and bring it to life on her site to showcase off her amazing stationery creations. I loved being able to help Lemon and Lavender build a brand that could grow with not only her line but her as well! 

 I drew so much inspiration from Ashleys Instagram and her style in general, that this one of most fun projects I have worked on. Thank you Ashley, you are going to do great things!
