Not just photographs!

I thought this might be a good time to tell a little bit about my other creative outlets in case you . . . or anyone you might know . . . would be interested. I've started creating blog headers . . . and love it. I only really know Blogger and Type Pad, so I can only do designs right now for both of these. But if you'd like to see a few glimpses of what I can do, take a look at my current header here at Purple Valley, and also at VWC Photography and at Ramblings from Life. I'd love to design YOU one!

I also have taken up designing birth announcements, Christmas cards, you name it. I love creating . . . everything! Here is a look at some of my creations.





I also have created some composites with the photography work I do (most of it my on-location work). I think my favorite graphic design work consists in creating these. I love seeing parents smile. They never know what they are going to get, and it's always a pleasant surprise.







I have also designed ads and business cards. This is the only one I have on my laptop right now, which was done for a doula. I'm in the process of designing a new website for myself with a new logo, header, business cards, etc. Also working on new business cards from my friend, Alexis, who I linked above over at Ramblings from Life. She, too, is a work from home mamma! We can't be successful without supporting one another. :)

Can I just called you "Talent" from now on??? I love your creativity Val. I hope you realize how inspiring it is.

Question, we *might* throw a birthdy party for my mom next month. How long would it take for you to design an invitation?.... if we decide to throw the party....

Oh, how fun would that be?! You and I could swap stuff... I'll send you jewelry for groovy cards and designs. Or maybe just Starbucks cards. :)

Great photography with some creative, innovative applications! What a challenge to balance both work and motherhood. I'm doing the same with writing and mothering my four kids, though, and it's kind of an experiment...an evolution...as we try one thing, adjust, try another, adjust.

Thanks for stopping by my blog for the party! Nice to get acquainted a bit.

I'm trying to revamp my blog. Maybe if you have a free second (ha ha) you could help me with a header?! :)
