{New Custom Illustration} Nicole Sullivan & Family

AshleyBrookeDesigns_NicoleSullivan

(Click on image to zoom in and see the details!)

Today I wanted to share with you a recent custom illustration I did for the oh-so-funny and talented Nicole Sullivan. Nicole has quickly become one of my favorite people, she is as funny and sweet as she seems on the big/small screen, and working with her on this illustration for her ADORABLE family was such fun! She has two little boys, each who are ridiculously cute (plus, they have the best names Dash and Beckett… don’t you just love that?) and wanted something that was relaxed and fun. I just love the way the illustration came together!

My Weekend Lookbook: January 28-29, 2012

AshleyBrookeDesigns_January 2012-1

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your Monday is off to a fabulous start!

Before I tackle my morning to do list, here is a tiny peek at what my weekend looked like…

Photo 1. I picked up this pretty new Kate Spade phone case at Nordstrom this weekend after my glittery J.Crew one died a horrible sparkly death. I kinda love it…it’s shiny and polka-doted… two of my favorite things!

Photo 2. On Saturday morning I went for an early morning run down in Winter Park (this was my view and of course I was wearing this zip-up.), it’s nice to have a change of scenery every once in a while.  And after my run I headed the Farmer’s Market, sweaty and all, to pick up our produce for the week. The fruit there is just so darn good and since we live about 30 mins. away I had to soak up all the FM goodness I could! Plus it’s fun to feel fancy and say, “I got this apple from the Farmer’s Market”.

Photo 3. There aren’t many things I like more than puppies, they are just so darn cute and floppy! And when B called to say her sister Courtney, one of my favorite people,  just picked up her brand new puppy I couldn’t get out the door fast enough… Here is a little photo I snapped of Court and her new love, Pippa (or you can call her “The Pipster”, like I do.). Honestly, how could you not love that face?

I hope your weekend was as lovely as mine! Stay tuned I’ve got lots planned… including February’s Download!!

Cheers to a fabulous and productive week!!

A Charming Trip To The Post: 0046

Ashley Brooke Desgins - Charming Trip To The Post

Ashley Brooke Desgins - Charming Trip To The Post

Postage was raised 1 penny on Sunday, and the only thing good about this situation is the crop of brand new stamps. I love a good new stamp design and I especially adore the LOVE stamps that come out every year or so. This year’s design is perfection! I can’t wait to scoop up a few sheets of these to put on all my Valentines this year… The stamp was designed by Louise Fili and lettered Jessica Hische, a match made in stamp heaven!

Thanks Melissa for sending this my way!
