I’m currently in the process of working with my designer on adding some exciting new branding to blackbirdblue- but until it’s done I can’t post anything about it…

Until then, I wanted to take a sec to blog about Brent Holloman. Brent’s a close friend of mine and awesome designer who created my logo and business cards last year. He’s honestly the best at what he does, and I’m constantly amazed by his talent.

Last summer when we began the design process, he was so great at listening to what I wanted out of my logo, my likes & dislikes, and mixing our styles to create something perfect for my personality & business.

To this day it’s exactly what I wanted, and couldn’t imagine anything more perfect. So grateful and blessed to have such talented people in my life.

You can stop by and check out Brent’s awesome design work here & read his post on my logo design here.

Pictures of our new project soon!

Here is just the beginning of our new line of accessories for blackbirdblue…intricately sewn blooms hanging from pretty metals, and adorned with varied buttons.

Dramatic enough to wear with a simple solid, and soft enough to mix & match with a pretty pattern.

There are lots of options for fabrics, accents, buttons, and chains…this neck pretty can be made & worn almost any way your heart desires.

My amazing friend, Amanda, who I work along side with every day at MHP, is now going to have her own handmade items sold in my shop!

Amanda has been a busy little bee making handmade paper creations, such as flowers for hair, magnets, clips, etc. so I decided it was time we collaborated…

Amanda and I have not only been friends and co-workers for a long time, but we have always encouraged and supported each other’s creativity. I’m so excited to be able to share her work with you, and I think you’ll love seeing some of the beautiful things she makes!

Make sure to stop by her new corner of the shop called “the paper doll” and browse through her lovely little creations…

Amanda takes custom orders as well, so feel free to convo us about your own personal paper-made!

Welcome to blackbirdblue, Amanda!

the branding for blackbirdblue is slowly but surely coming together…

i’ve been getting together my packaging and piecing together all kinds of fun bags & boxes, tissue paper, stamps, threads, thank you cards, etc. for shipping and delivery.

buying a headpiece is fun before you even get to wear it!
