A few weeks ago a joined The Artisan Group. It is a community of talented, extremely talented, artists who showcase their works to celebrities. The Artisan Group represents these artists in celebrity gift lounges at award ceremonies such as the Oscars and Golden Globes. As a member of the group, I was afforded the opportunity this week to design a special stationery ensemble for a celebrity. The celebrity is none other than the talented Jessica Alba, who recently welcomed a second daughter into her already precious family. I am more than honored to have been given this opportunity and can’t wait until Jessica receives her I’m Inkpressed Stationery!

If we all pitched in just a little, my what a world this would be! I have always been touched by people who pour their hearts into something they believe in. In they end it makes us all believers. I have blogged in the past about my dear friend Patti who has met adversity with courage. The kind of courage most of us can only hope for. Patti, for those of you who do not know, is a cervical cancer survivor who has turned negative into positive, and continues her undying mission to spread the word about awareness.
In the past we offered a “Live” luggage tag designed especially for this cause, to benefit Tamika & Friends, an organization that is doing wonderful things to help bring awareness cervical cancer early detection. Patti holds this organization near and dear to her.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by a young lady named Hali, who had seen my “Live” tags and wanted to know if I could design a cell phone case to honor her mother. Hali’s mother had lost her battle with cervical cancer. I was not only honored but humbled. As a graphic designer, doodling and designing is all I know. It is my tool. But who would’ve thought that my designs could reach so many by helping along an organization that does such great work. Proof that we can all do something….anything, to help.
It is for this reason that today we unveil 3 new designs to benefit Tamika & Friends. These cases were designed for the owners of them to show support in honor, or in memory of someone touched by this devastating illness. The cases are available as cell phone covers or iPod covers.

The second color in the trend report is Blue Curacao. It is a warm teal that resembles “Tiffany Blue”. This color, or different shades of it, has been prominent in the past recent years. It is a feminine blue, which probably attributes to its popularity. Blue Curacao has also been popular in the culinary trade. Cupcakes, cakes and other confections are often seen displayed in this particluar shade of blue, as seen in the adorable cake toppers below.
