Some Recent Logos

Most of my time lately has been designing logos for other small businesses. I specialize in "character logos" where, as you'll notice from the examples below, there is more illustration involved than some mainstream logos out there.

I think my favorite part of designing is getting to know the people I'm designing for. I love all my customers, but I adore meeting other work-at-home-moms!

Etsy user Gavifish plans on opening a shop soon! I was able to design this logo for her--it's one of my personal favorites!


Etsy user fleegirlcreations recently opened a new shop, The Crafty Closet & I had the privilege of designing a banner for her.

I'm also currently working with the fabulous owner of Katherine's Kloset. You can see her fresh logo below.


Something fun I've done for a few shops now is take a current item in their shop or a sketch they've made and turn it into a logo! I took a sketch from My Kangaroo and turned it into her logo, banner, business card, and stickers for her shop:
I am currently working with Mrs. Dragon on a new logo package. I was able to take one of her adorable dragonlings and sketch it digitally. We'll be working it into her new logo.

If you're interested in having a logo designed by me, BitsyCreations, please visit my website or my Etsy shop. Thank you!

We Love Etsy!

I’m sure most of you know I sell on Etsy.com. If you haven’t visited the site yet, please do! You will be overwhelmed by the talent & creativity. I know I am on a daily basis!

I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work with quite a few other “Etsians” in my almost 2 years there. When they found out I was expecting, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a few gifts, not only for C, but for big sister J as well! Joshua & I were so touched! I know I adore meeting new people and we really do bond as I work to create a logo for their business, so it was lovely to know many felt the same way!

I wanted to share some of the great finds on Etsy! Some of these were gifts & others were purchases (or trades) we made for the kids. Enjoy!
The sweet duck bodysuit C is sporting in the above photo was a generous gift from Lovebug Designs by Emily. Thank you!! Doesn’t he look dashing?! :)

The burp cloth behind him was a gift from our sweet friend Kelly who recently opened Lil’ Boo Works on Etsy.
The skirt Janiah is wearing was a fantastic find! Handmade by Bananabug Babies, we also picked up a few of her fantastic pacifier clips.

Other great finds in the past few months have been:

*this hand-painted, absolutely gorgeous giraffe tee for C by Courtly who was sweet enough to make one in his size,

*hand-sewn whale tee from BrittainRoad, and

*adorable handmade shoes for C from BabyThingsByJessica.

A very special thank you to Emily (maker of the duck onesie above), AllAboutTheButtons (who sent J the sweetest button barrette–one of my very favorite shops because honestly, who knew there was someone out there who loves buttons as much as I do?!), Betsy & Meg, a great mother & daughter I’ve had the pleasure of working with who sent a sweet personalized outfit & hat from Doodlebug (Meg’s company) for C, BibBon who sent bibs and the most amazing little idea ever: nursing reminders!

I’ve never been so touched; I felt SO loved by the generosity of countless people who have never even met my sweet family in person. Thank you, thank you!

Baby Bodysuits & Toddler Tees




Awhile back, I was honest with myself and realized I don't have the time, money, or space to learn to screen print no matter how much I want to! So I took some of my designs and had Supastarr on Etsy do the work for me.
I am so incredibly pleased with the end result! You can purchase the baby bodysuits and toddler tees in my Bitsy's Greetings shop on Etsy.

Back after Baby!


Here I am! Back after welcoming our sweet son into the world. He's now 1 month old and I'm enjoying getting work accomplished when I have the chance. Thanks to my very sweet husband who watches the kids in the evenings so I can do what I love!

I'm adding more to both shops, so make sure you take a look! Here's my new favorite--cupcake invitations! Perfect for a special little birthday girl!
