books on shirts

I love this! What a great idea for book lovers. Out of Print Clothing celebrates the world's greatest stories through fashion. Their hip tees are printed with iconic book cover art. Even better, for each t-shirt sold, they donate one book to a community in need through their partner Books for Africa.

happy mother's day

Dear Mom
Thank you for the bazillion ways you have helped and supported me. There are too many to count. Thank you for ungrounding me when I begged and begged. For standing up for me when my math teacher told you, "girls aren't supposed to be good at math." For buying me a Cabbage Patch Kid when I had to have one because everyone else did. For always being thoughtful and caring. And for always saying I was your favorite :)

❤ Devon

P.S. Happy Mother's Day to the rest of the amazing mothers out there too.

Betty kills it.

At 88 years old, Betty White killed it last night hosting Saturday Night Live. Hands down the best SNL I've seen in a very long time. Maybe ever. Her comic delivery is amazing. She is sassy, vulgar, hip and charming. Which is hard to be good at, period. Not to mention at 88! I swear she just keeps getting better. I'm so glad she lived up to, and surpassed all the hype leading up to the show. If you missed it, definitely look for it online. Go Betty!

who doesn't love free art?

Feed Your Soul has been around for a while. But I just thought I would give it a shout out for those of you who maybe haven't discovered it yet. Jen Wallace of Indie Fixx created this wonderful project to offer free art during tough economic times as well as to promote artists. New prints are available Mondays for you to download and print. What an uplifting concept! Need something new for your wall. check it out Feed Your Soul. Here are some of my favorites.

oh, susan blue hangtags

I thought I'd share a little design project I've been working on. These hangtags are for a cute little line of gifts for new brand "Oh, Susan Blue." The brand is based on an old nursery rhyme. It had special meaning for the client as a little girl because they shared the same name. I wanted the hangtags to feel vintage with rich textures and also have a playful, childlike quality. I love how they turned out. Working on projects like this makes me want to design all of my materials for STELLA+HODGE. I'll have to hold off for now though.
