patterns, graphics and social buttons

i woke up this morning to a very exciting newsletter in my inbox, announcing august empress’ new shop for seamless repeating patterns, graphics and social buttons! for those of you who don’t know, jo klima is one of the most talented gals i know (though i may be biased, she designed going home to roost!). her patterns and graphics are stunningly beautiful with watercolor textures and soft, geometric details. each with a handcrafted touch combined with feminine colors brings both depth and light to each design- all of which i’ve fallen in love with. visit her shop here!

hello lovelies!  someone very dear to my heart has started a blog that has become one of my addictions daily reads.  jo klima is always my go-to-gal for design work.  that’s right- she designed going home to roost and selling the handmade way! after all these years of designing blogs and websites for other people, jo has finally been able to start her very own blog, august empress.
