At my previous job I was so fortunate to meet my (now very good) friend Allison. Whilst sharing a workplace we also shared our lives, the good, the bad and sometimes the downright ugly. When I resigned, Allison was only fairly recently pregnant with her second child and I remember feeling sad that I couldn’t be there to watch her life change as she anticipated the arrival of this new life.

A few months ago Allison contacted me, asking if I could design an invitation for her baby’s christening. She gave me free reign to design whatever inspired me. One thing I know about Ally is that she loves colour palettes that aren’t atypical. The invite was for a little boy so I wanted to avoid using too much blue. Given that Ally has fantastic taste in kids wares I was thrilled that she loved the final product.

Allison, thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your little man’s life in this way. I have always loved working with you, and am glad that I still can.

Alexander, you brought joy to so many before they had even properly met you! I can’t wait to watch you grow and get to know you more. You are very much loved and I hope your Christening will forever be a reminder of this fact.
