Girls Drink Beer Too!

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Well, I don’t but I’m pretty sure there are some ladies that enjoy a cold brewski from time to time. In honor of them and to people that are fond of drinking from glasses period, I created this pint for the design club at my office. Each month, a designer is selected at random to design an object. We typically do a series of things like t-shirts, or notebooks and now we’re doing pint glasses.

There are no rules other than to do whatever you want and whomever is in the club is stuck with whatever you design; a tall order for a designer and quite an terrifying one at that. It’s not every day that I can design without any restrictions. Admittedly, I was a bit overwhelmed at first. But once I’d made up my mind to design something pretty and overtly feminie, I just went with it!

The phrase on the side “may you enjoy many, many happy hours” is my personal wish to all that drink from my glass; whatever the beverage may be. Cheers!



Hello Again!

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Thank You by Drew Melton of The Phraseology Project

Hello again friends! Gosh, it feels like it’s been forever! Only three months away from blogland and I felt myself going a little crazy. I’m happy to report that I am finally feeling much better. I still struggle with some pain from time-to-time but overall I am encoraged by my progress.

I want to say a big thanks to all that sent me notes and good wishes. I can’t tell you how nice it was knowing I had so many people caring for me and thinking positive thoughts. I think it helped to take some time off from blogging and realy focus on getting better. Thank you agian for your support and patience.

I’ve decided to return to blogging but on more of a limited basis so as not to over do it. I’ll be posting once a week from now on and I am thrilled to be getting back into the swing of things! I’ll continue to share my favorite design finds along with personal projects I’ve put together. I’m so excited to be back and I can’t wait to get started! Check back later today for a project I just finished at work, I can’t wait to share it with you!


A Mrs. Proper Table Setting

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Mrs. Lilien always has the most clever combinations and playful collections when it comes to fashion. She’s a favorite that I visit for style inspiration and a dose of class.

I particularly love her recent post about setting a proper table when entertaining. If it’s one thing I absolutely love, it’s a good ol’ dinner party! But it can be a bit of a challenge to remember the approprite place for each of the flatware, glassware and dinner plates.

Thanks to Mrs. Lilien’s charming illustration, setting the perfect table is confusing no more! Read the full article here for a complete explanation of the proper Mrs. table setting. Cheers!



Poppies For Grace

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

I recently discovered the work of Poppies for Grace and not only do I love what they do but the styling for these images is stunning! Alan and Sara are the designers behind the Poppies wedding stationary and they worked together with photographer Armel to capture their work beautifully. Love, love, LOVE! See more of what they do in their shop and be sure to check out their blog too!



In Love with Chalk

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

I’m head over heels for these chalk illustrations by Dana Tanamachi.  The fact that they’re done freehand without the use of stencils or projectors just blows my mind!
