Ultrasound of Lucian’s Head    Today’s post is kind of late, but I have my reasons. I just came back from a doctor’s appointment, and I’m so excited.

I got my first ultrasound images today!

Usually you’d get them soon in the pregnancy, but for some reason, my little bomb is a shy one [I have no idea why]. So, my doctor was finally able to get a good shot of him – yes, it’s a boy.

I have about six more weeks to go before the big day, and I’m starting to get really nervous. I’m putting the finishing touches on the nursery in my spare time, but I still can’t seem to stop worrying – what if I don’t have this, who’s going to  remember to bring that?

But, I guess that’s a mother’s job. It’s just a little strange to start thinking of myself as a mother just yet.

The Latest Dayna Jones Project

In yet another effort to share my creativity and ideas with the world, I’ve taken on another endeavor – a book. Though, I’ll admit right now: this one is going to take me a while.

The book is going to be a collection of ideas and photos for throwing spectacular events [I design and coordinate events with DJC]. The pages will be divided into themes that I’ve either used or would love to use for all kinds of events – weddings, after-parties, brunches, and intimate get-togethers [I’m the bachelorette party queen]. I’m really looking forward to working with my crew and some other artists and photographers to get this show on the road. Then after that, it’s all a matter of getting it published.

If you happen to know any publishers off hand – or better yet, happen to work for a publishing company – be sure to send me an email. And feel free to leave your comments, ideas, and suggestions on what I should work on for the book.

Wish me luck!

I am an extremely creative being, and while I’m not working with clients, you can probably find me doing one of three things: sleeping [have to get my beauty rest somehow], reading up on the latest in the Big City [my nickname for the Houston metropolis], or drawing. I love to draw – I’ve been doing it for as long as anyone can remember. And I love drawing all kinds of things – portraits, cartoons and comics, even room clothing designs. Yet, one of the things that I love creating the most is print designs.

This love of mine has brought Signature Paperie into existence.

Signature Paperie is where I’ll be flexing my creative muscle for the good of all mankind – in the form of custom print designs. I’ll be working with a number of vendors and fellow artists, as well as doing loads of research [the basis of all that I do], in order to present my talents to the world in such a tangible way. This new company of mine will offer personalized stationery and logos, as well as calling cards, note cards, envelopes and greeting cards. I’ll be creating dozens of designs for you all to choose from, and customizing them to your specifications. We’ll even be offering Stationery Packages, with calling cards [which can be used as business cards], letterheads, and envelopes and more, as well as return address printing for your new products.

Signature Paperie will be an online store in its beginning, but if things go well, I may just house the shop in an enclosed area in my office, to give customers a creative environment in which to envision their projects and wishes. [And just in case you were wondering, I don’t have an office as of yet. I don’t have the immediate need for it.] The website, along with the products for the shop, is being drafted and outlines as we speak [or read, rather], and we will open its proverbial doors for business on Tuesday, 1 April 2008.

I’m really excited about Signature Paperie, and I can’t wait for the Grand Opening. If you see me in a local bookstore these days, I’ll probably be working on new ideas for the product lines. Feel free to stop by and share your ideas and suggestions. You may just see them on the website. As for right now, you can visit the website at signature.daynajones.org to sign up for our waiting list. You’ll be one of the first to know when the shop is officially open. And who knows – there may just be a free gift for the first customers… Sign up today and get your Signature Paperie creations as soon as you can.
