I have been making indie mixtapes (or cds rather) for a looong time. [SIDE NOTE: I initially started this blog in ’08 to write about indie music] Anyway, this year I decided to make a design project of the effort and “publish” monthly mixes that I send to my followers (a small group of friends and family). The recycled cardboard cases have a magnetic closure and the featured bands listed on the back. The sets also have color-coordinated labels that correspond with the seasons.
My free time in the past two months has been spent working on my sister’s baby shower. Mostly on making the invitations, but also decorations, menu planning, favors, etc. Below are the invitations I designed, along with the silly video that Adam made.
(and the baby? it’s a ridiculous Photoshopped combination of my sister’s and her husband’s facial features)
