I've been busy the last few years, but not as busy as I am right now being a mom to my precious baby-boy Callum who was born on October 30, 2011. I'm not taking on any new projects for the time being as being a full-time mom is more time consuming and amazing than I ever thought possible. Our litte guy is an IVF miracle baby, so I want to take the time to enjoy every moment with him. I plan on working again in the (somewhat) near future, but I have no idea as of yet when that will be. Until then, I'm always available to chat and pass on some other design gurus' names so feel free to drop me a line. Also, please note that the blog comments aren't working right now.

Wow. Have I been blog negligent or what?? On one hand, it means I've been so busy with work that I have had no time to even think about my website, but on the other hand, it is in some serious need of TLC and makes me appear like a stereotypical scatterbrained designer, which I'm not. I actually think I'm a lot more organized than most!

Who doesn't? However, I love it so much that, like many others out there, I decided to start my own store. You see, my other passion in life besides design, is fabric and sewing. There are so many wonderful fabrics out there, and as a designer, I am drawn to bold, funky prints. For Christmas this year, I made bags and camera straps for nearly every female on my list (I will be the first to admit my creations are pretty girly). The response was overwhelmingly positive, and everyone encourage me to sell my creations. So now I am!

Obleek's custom designed greeting card contest is now over, and I want to thank each and every one of you who entered. After a random draw, I've picked the following 3 names and have contacted the winners via email:
Merisa - Birthday Invitation
Chelle - Christmas Card
Kelley (bellydancinbabe) - Birth Announcement
Congratulations, ladies! I can't wait to work with you on your designs. As for those of you who weren't so lucky this time, stay tuned for more giveaways in the future. Also, if you're interested in having a custom designed Christmas card, now's the time to get started. Please contact me if you're interested and I will gladly send you my price list.
Thanks again everyone for participating and making Obleek's first contest a huge success!

I said that September would be a month of fun surprises here at Obleek, and so it is! 3 lucky winners will receive a custom design (by me) of either a birth announcement, Christmas card, or birthday invitation.
The design can either be 5”X7” or 4”X6” and is full colour, single sided. You will have input in the design and colour scheme, though the design will be used as a template that others can choose from in the future. 25 printed copies on matte cardstock are included (with shipping to anywhere in Canada and the U.S.), and the design will be provided digitally as well should you ever want to have them printed at your local photo printer or copy center.
