Hello from the Mardi Gras capital of the world! It’s been crazy here, taking in all the sites and sounds (and tastes) of my first carnival season in New Orleans. But I’ve managed to squeeze in a bunch of new projects and some updates to the Etsy shop. I’m working on populating the shop, but I have so many ideas, I just have a hard time prioritizing!
Floats are so much prettier than I could have imagined – and evidently I have yet to see some of the most amazing ones! I can’t even imagine the hours of work folks put into these. I need to join a Mardi Gras krewe…
The weather has also been absolutely gorgeous for the better part of two weeks. I’m not the only one who was excited to get outside and enjoy it!
That guy above was painting a super cute pink house in the Lower Garden District. I wish I had gotten the angle better, but I was sitting at a stop sign.
If you locals have a little insight into this cute little shiny stencil below, I’d love to hear about it! It’s either new at Jackson and Magazine, or I’ve only just noticed it. Anyone know what it’s all about?
In other news, I’ve just finished a new poster for the high energy local band Gravy Flavored Kisses, highlighting their upcoming shows. Check them out! They are awesome!
I also just finished a new logo for the newest resource in New Orleans’ natural birth community, Big Easy Birth. If you’re in the area and thinking about a natural birth, using doulas, midwives or have postpartum questions, this new site is a great resource!
Happy Carnival y’all!
