Chalkboard Mural-ing

My Husband and I have been finishing up our kitchen remodel and on one of the walls we have added a chalkboard wall, using chalkboard paint. We wanted to have a few more permanent features on the wall including kitchen measurement conversions that we are constantly finding ourselves looking up online. We also keep a running list of things we need to get when we run errands. Its very helpful to keep it all in one place.
I decided to look up a few fonts for inspiration as well as make up my own along the way. What do you think?

If you're in the Austin area, don't forget that Bloom does mural work too!


A Bloom Favorite: Essence Photography

A relative new comer to the professional photography business, Betsy Erickson, owner and photographer of Essence Photography based in Northern California, has an amazing eye for catching the emotion and intimate moments between people.

Betsy blew me away with her gorgeous photos of a new born baby girl and her mother. How perfect would these shots be on a crisp clean custom designed baby announcement?

Or this shot on a first birthday invitation?

Essence Photography is also available for wedding photography. Check out her website, and think about all the brilliant and beautiful cards that can be made to show off your loved ones!

Texas Themed Birthday BBQ

A friend of mine was feeling a little nostalgic for the time she lived here in Austin and decided to throw herself a Texas Themed Birthday party...in Chicago! She asked for a little help with the invite and sent them out electronically. No printing or postage necessary.
