Custom Lapel Pins - Trattoria Luigi

Hey guys! Long time no see! I have had SUCH a busy summer! After Prom, and graduation, and then babysitting my FOUR cousins! I have been exhausted! I have been getting back into the groove, though! Here are some shots of a recent whole-sale order I did.

I normally don't do things like this, but I was ready for a challenge. I am so happy how they turned out, too! What do you think? They are for a wonderful little Italian restaurant in South Africa! The owner, Antonio, wanted something to offer his guests as a souvenir- and this is what we came up with! 

Also, on another note. My photography has picked up! I recently got some local recognition, and this weekend I am taking wedding photos! Exciting, right!?

I was also excited about how these custom labels turned out! I always feel so happy inside when I am pleased with the packaging. Its like... after all the work of creating these items, it is SO rewarding to put it in a little package and send it off. :') Its like sending my babies off into the world!

Here is a little close-up of the pins. By the way, they are a Pizza Chef and a Pulcinella!

I love these little guys so much. And even better, I might have the chance to make many many more! And maybe even more characters if Antonio wants!

Well, that's all for now! I have missed the blogging community!
