Logo design, branding and product photography by Silverbox for the up and coming Fickle Pickle Parties. We’re tickled about this new local party business and look forward to so many colorful events in the near future. We couldn’t be happier for this company that’s filled with so much passion. All the best sweetest Laurie!
What is Fickle Pickle?
Fickle Pickle Parties is dedicated to helping you host your child’s party with simplicity and charm. Party packages vary by theme, but most include linens, table setting, centerpieces, three games, music and a large prop perfect for a grand entrance and photo ops. Fickle Pickle Parties have an indulgent appearance, but are justifiably priced. They have many themes to choose from and are always looking for reasons to create new ones. They serve boys and girls from ages 3-13.
Just recently, in our 22 years of marriage, my husband and I realized that it was time to stop sharing the same tube of toothpaste. He always complained that I didn’t screw the cap on tight enough. I honestly never liked his choice of toothpaste anyway. Who would of thought getting two tubes would do the trick after all these years? Marriage ~ a work in progress every single day. Happy Anniversary Ted! Here’s to dancing into the next 22 years! Happy Friday dearest Silverbox family.
We had the distinct honor of designing a Save the Date invitation Rachel and Rob this past month. Between working with Rachel, Christina, the very talented photographer of simplyblackandwhitephotography.com and Jaime of bellafloraofdallas.com, we were surrounded by some talented gals. It sure makes our job such a pleasure! Thank you Texas!
The studio is filled with lots of warmth and Valentine Love on this blustery winter day, so I thought I’d snap a few morning photos. We purchase a bunch of our props at a local store called the Nest Home Decor in Oaks, right behind the Movie Theater. If you haven’t been there yet, go take a visit. You’re in for a real treat! Stay warm my sweet friends.
I was asked this week if there where items in my studio that had special meaning to me. I never really thought about it. It didn’t take long to realize I was surrounded by meaningful pieces. An illustrated desk calendar by my daughter, inspirational books, oil paint and brushes to remind me to find some time to paint again, photos of grandparents here and there that remind me who helped mold the gal sitting behind this keyboard, and so many more comforts in nooks and crannies.
I guess I subconsiously kept these little breadcrumbs, so that I would never lose site of how I got here. Do I still have my first “Learn how to Draw” book on these shelves? You better believe it! (That’s a blog post in itself.) Wishing you all a weekend filled with special somethings.
They say working with good or bad people can make or break your day. I was the luckiest gal to create with this gem, Lisa Florio of Springfield, Pa. Her million watt smile says it all. We recently had some fun together creating a brand to support her personality and photography style, and honoring how important her photography is to her community. Go get ‘em Lisa!
My life changed the day I called Dave Gehman at Road 2 Running. I’ve been running for 25 years, but it wasn’t until someone showed me that it wasn’t how far or fast I was going, but how smart I was running that made all the difference.
His personal attention to your goals is an extraordinary one-on-one experience that no runner should go without. If I could get a lifetime membership I would. Honestly, I’d feel like a fish out of water without him. The personal training is priceless. Completely priceless.
You know what’s fun? This graphic designer/runner got the opportunity to design some cards for Road 2 Running this past year. Thank you for making such an impact in my life!
When your kids get older it’s much harder to incorporate birthday party themes without them feeling embarrassed. My teen just loves Ariana Grande, so we went with this simple design. We’ll see what activities we muster up for the party. Are you planning a teen party? If so, did you incorporate a theme?
Gosh, I wish you could’ve seen this in person. Such a grand gift from one thoughtful husband. He came in the studio looking for something extra special for his wife for their 10th Wedding Anniversary. We knew we were going to design a lyric from “their” song, but then later decided to get a custom decal made for a mirror versus a print. The 4′ x 3′ beveled mirror was custom framed and all set to go for one lucky wife! Thank you Drew Holcomb for a lovely song and lyrics.
