Loving Lavender

Back in December I worked on a fun project for my friend Catherine. She and her husband were giving the gift of lavender for the holidays. They harvested the lavender from their farm and had lotion, oil and soap made. She had seen my notebook s and loved them. She had the idea of including notebooks in with the lavender baskets. Everything was going to be pulled together with the packaging...all done by me!

It was a great project for a number of reasons. First, Catherine and I think the same, we have the same taste and get excited over the same little matching purple ribbon and small bits of apple green on the labels! So it was fun to collaborate with her on the designs. Second, I have never done labels for a project like this and am really happy with how they turned out. They are completely my style. Which means it was easy to work on. The ideas came quickly and naturally. I love when I can work on a project and the idea doesn't feel forced.

I can't believe they harvested the lavender from their farm and did about 'handmade'! I love the purple and green together and the designs on the labels and notebooks are really cool...I bet the recipients of the baskets were very happy!!

Thanks! I love the purple and green. Yes, actually her husband harvested the lavender. A passionate gardener I would say:)
