Happy Tuesday! ✨ I’ve had a few enquiries about whether I’m still working or if I am taking - or already on - maternity leave (for those who don’t know yet - we welcomed our sweet Baby Boy into the world on 31 May). To answer that question - yes and no 🙄😜 - yes I am taking maternity leave (...eventually) but no, I’m not on maternity leave just yet. I’m taking advantage of the extra newborn sleepiness to finish up some pre-baby projects and during this period I am accepting smaller, short-term projects 🌿 I may be quieter on social media and take a tiny bit longer to reply to messages and emails - but I have a good excuse - I’m soaking up newborn cuddles 😉 if you would like to work together please get in touch and let’s chat 💕 photo by @tiffsburnham

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places." - Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms ✨May you grow strong at the broken places // This is one of my favourite images from last year's #RosesForThorns series 🌸 and a little bit of Monday moodiness ❤️🌧 on this rainy Cape Town start to the week //Image and Concept by @shante_hutton // Dress by @jacoba_clothing // Featured here @cindyalfino // Concept Development and Styling by Tapestry

Oh hi 👋 it's me Tam, I've been pretty quiet lately, but I promise I haven't disappeared - I've just been sitting here, drinking my honey and lemon tea whilst recovering from brutal flu, juggling a sick toddler #mombosslife and wrapping up a bunch of wonderful projects before heading off on maternity leave (more info on that in another post) 😉 but this is just a quick hello, to say I'm still here and to send loads of love and gratitude to my amazing clients who have been so kind and understanding with minor delays these last two weeks 💙✨ thank you!

Rubber stamps - completely underrated! Stamps are such a wonderful (and affordable) way to add a bespoke feel to your product or packaging! Right now I'm loving stamps that feature graphic elements from client branding (a great way to add a special detail or pattern to tissue paper, wrapping paper or even canvas bags for your packaging) and address stamps (a lovely way to address envelopes and cards for clients or you could add extra contact details and use it on those non-digital invoices and letterheads) // Featured here: A rubber stamp made for @moodie_affair featuring the rose detail from the branding we created.

"She is tossed by the waves but does not sink" 🌊💙 // 'Fluctuat nec mergitur' is a Latin phrase and is the motto present on the city coat of arms for Paris, France. The motto has been used since the mid 1300s by the city of Paris and is translated into French as "Il est battu par les flots, mais ne sombre pas" - "She is tossed by the waves but does not sink". // Image of @jonelledupont of @tyrannyofpink by @shante_hutton from the #RosesForThorns series ✨ // Hair and Makeup: @madeleinehairandmakeup // Dress: @jacoba_clothing // Styling and Concept Development: Tapestry

There is something so magical in traveling the brand journey with clients ✨working with them to create a logo and brand elements that are a true and clear reflection of their personal and professional style, values and personality. That process of collaboration and seeing everything come together is the best 🙌 and my absolute favourite part is using those carefully created elements on items made especially for your brand and business. There are very few things in life that beat seeing your own logo come to life on something special and unique to your brand :) Here's a little snap of the laser engraved hangers and pretty packaging stickers I put together for the very wonderful @lovelongclothing :) it was such an joy to work on a visual identity for them and I loved being able to showcase their beautiful branding with these lovely goodies 🌿

Hooray it's Friday! 🎉 and it has been raining in Cape Town 🙌 to celebrate all these wonderful #FridayFeels here is a pretty picture 😜 How beautiful are these paper florals by @moodie_affair 😱😍🌸 I'm a bit obsessed with that pastel pink rose! This image is from the shoot we did to showcase the branding I created for @moodie_affair last year - I just couldn't resist styling a few floral setups with these gorgeous pieces Neil made specially for our shoot :) 😆 // Image by @tiffsburnham // Florals by @moodie_affair // Styling by Tapestry

I can't even fathom the strength and courage it takes to live each day after the loss of your partner and best friend. The way Angela faced (and continues to face) not only the challenges of life, but those of parenthood, without Darrell by her side is a true testimony to her incredible strength and power. And the fact that she chooses to embrace joy, fun and playfulness for her son Elijah, even on the hardest days - is an incredible inspiration. Thank you Angela for sharing your story. And thank you to the amazing contributors who made this shoot possible - Photography by @shante_hutton // Rose - Angela Rea of @oursunshinejourney // Hair and Makeup by @ingemariehm // Dresses by @jacoba_clothing // Gold Foliage Crown, Florals and Veiling by @eflowerstudio // Gold Custom Crown by @magpiecalls // Vintage Ladder by @myprettyvintage and @theeventsco.ct // This story of phenomenal strength, love and determination is on the Rose and Thorns blog today - link in bio :) #RosesForThorns #RoseAndThorns #RoseAndThornsBlog #BlogSeries #PhotoSeries #ConceptShoot #MotherhoodRising #MotherhoodUnplugged #Loss #Widow #SoloParenting #Strength #Courage #CapeTown #Grief #Heartache
