~ pve design

When I entered the blog world a couple months ago, I quickly became aware of the powerful presence and universal love of pve design.  I realized that if I wanted to be somebody in this blog world, pve design could help.  After all, she has done work for some of my favorite blogs, Pretty Pink Tulips, All the Best, and Mrs. Blandings...  The wonderful and genius Patricia Van Esche, aka pve design, is becoming somewhat of a household name. Am I ever happy that I was smart enough to enlist Patricia to do an illustration for the french tangerine!  Here's my favorite... is this charming or what? 
Here are her illustrations for mentioned famous bloggers...
I am so utterly impressed with Patricia.  I have had the pleasure of working with her this past month and have so appreciated her patience with me.  I am pretty detail oriented and obsessive, and basically kind of annoying when it comes to critiquing things art or design-related.  Most recently, this obsessive quality has revealed itself as I work my way through any and all design plans for the french tangerine.
So, after receiving the monogram I ordered from Patricia, I totally loved it and was thrilled, etc.  But upon further examination, or what you might call intense scrutiny, I had a suggestion or two for changes...  Now, I must tell you, after working on my blog design for the past month, I was not thinking about the fact that Patricia's designs are hand-done... she can't just make a little change to the original as in computer land.. add a leaf here, tweak a color there... She would have to redo the entire work of art.  Well, after several emails, and Patricia's expertise and clever move, (doing a little background check on me through my blog) she came up with the most exquisite works of art EVER for the french tangerineI am chomping at the bit for the art to arrive and am planning on and looking forward to stationary galore!  


Take a look at these additional enchanting and sa-weet illustrations...





  She is so smart!  What a collection of notecards I will have! 

Here are some more examples of her work...

What a talented and wonderful person!  I am totally impressed and obsessed.  If you would like to do something special for someone, or treat yourself, think about having Patricia of pve design do an illustration of your home, a pet, a special place or event, a monogram, a memorable vacation spot, or anything you love!  I can assure you it will be an experience you will enjoy and there will be a happy ending!

Thank you Patricia!  
I think the world of you!

I am one of the recipients of a "pve" design. Patricia is lovely to work with, and her ideas are perfection. She is, in my opinion, a joy of a lady!
