Sometimes I think it's the random, unplanned ideas that are the best!
When I happened to glance at a shopping bag in my wardrobe recently, it sparked a whole idea about a Logo for Wildflower Designs.
|This is part of the 'Rachel by The Warehouse' signature|
So what did I do? I approached an expert and creative friend - Pam of Fantail Digital Art . Pam took my request - 'I want something just like this' and - knowing more than I did that I couldn't have it! - started work on taking the elements I love of the design and my preferred colours and coming up with lots of different options and styles. She really did have a challenge in me - I know what I like but not always exactly why I DON'T like something!!
And so through this journey, we came to this.... and I LOVE it - using my website's font, two of my fav colours, the W & D from my name, and a sweet wee pic that reminds me of a bead and is a flower!

And now I'm working on creating a new email signature incorporating my logo ... this is a cool (free) application I discovered for gmail / google mail emails. You can do this too at http://www.wisestamps.com/. It has the nifty feature of being able to 'stream' your latest facebook or twitter (or several other social sites) status.
This is cool for some emails, although I tend to prefer a simpler look so am not sure about adding the status bit and tend to leave it off.
