vanhaylei I have never heard of Maple Street in New Orleans before yesterday, but I have a feeling I will be back many times. I was working in the Starbucks off maple street, then walked to this little gem to see what kind of books I could find. Maple Street Book Shop is perfect.. Books filling every room of a French house and the cozy chairs were enough to make me hang out for a good hour or 2. What a cool find.

vanhaylei I didn't get to celebrate Mother's Day with my momma today.. But when Wednesday rolls around, the two of us will be drinking coffee and eating watermelon all day long. Being a few hundred miles away is hard, but it makes me appreciate the time we do get to spend together 10 times more.. I love that lady! She is so sweet, loveable, understanding.. And ALWAYS the best momma I ever did have. @cndeec YOU DA BOMB! #watermelonmadness #mothersday #bestmommaever 2w

vanhaylei A snack run to the Asian market is never a bad idea. These aren't THAT crazy, but you can find some pretty interesting treats. Among my favs is this bag of what looks like Cheetos, but are in fact banana flavored puffs lol. Me and my husband plan to have a Chopped show down soon, and I'm going back there for his basket ingredients. Baby sardine sheets anyone?

vanhaylei It has been such a blessing to be married to this guy for 2 years now. He is patient, quiet, but so very bold and determined. This guys knows what he believes in and is so steady. I admire him, respect him, and trust him.
Thanks for this portrait @jamiephotos

vanhaylei Beautiful packaging can make anything seem so special, when in reality it's just a $3 soap bar.

vanhaylei And, eventually, those scratch papers blossom into this... Lisa Bourque is a super talented interior designer here in Lafayette. One of my favorite spaces of hers is The Lab in River Ranch. I'm beside myself that she had hired me to develop her branding. #logodesign #progress #process #graphicsdesign #orange #thelab #hayleismith #handscripted #negativespace #interiordesign 1mon

vanhaylei Brain storm sketching. This is what most of my designs start out as! There will be at least 30 crumpled up pieces just like this. I'm thinking about upgrading my paper size.. 1/2

vanhaylei I work with some of the coolest people ever! You can find Miss Christi with @thebrownshed within the pages of this months issue of Country Living magazine. Her home is so stunning and her chicken coops are fit for kings. Check her website for coop plans available for purchase in May. I'm very proud to have designed her logo and website :) And I believe I see a Dohar pillow designed by my new friends @melaandroam - ️it.

vanhaylei So much natural light, especially on a day like today! Manuel Builders had the right idea when they planned for these windows.

vanhaylei Thanks to my husband for the beautiful flower arrangement that made my kitchen beautiful for a whole week. I kept the greenery that is still going strong to make this cute little set up in my bathroom window.

vanhaylei I had a BLAST shooting with Beth of Connelly Construction Group today! Her eye for interior design is fabulous! As she styled, I photographed. Together she and I tackled 5 different homes that their crew constructed/remodeled. My only problem was that I really wanted to take the props home with me. Thanks for letting me borrow your photo, Beth! Now off to edit. 2mon

vanhaylei You really can't get a feel for your design until it's printed! A screen can never really capture the Beauty of the colors, or the feeling of the paper when you hold it in your hand.. #businesscards #design #print #watercolor #floral #handscripted #logodesign #createsomething #printit #onthesamepaige #hayleismith 2mon
