Word of the Year

If you follow me, by now you know my word for the year is “reset.” I’m very excited for what 2018 will bring to my business and family. I hope to make decisions in my business remembering the word I chose to guide me throughout the year. I don’t need more or bigger or new […]

Designing Life Part 2

*If you haven’t read part 1 of my birth story (which includes the actual birth) I suggest reading that first. See post HERE. I think the blurriness of the days following your birth are important to remember and, for me, is crucial to my birth story. Let’s just say it ain’t over till it’s over. Thanks for […]

Designing Life: a graphic designer’s birth story

We are detail oriented planners who set up rules and regulations for brands to follow.  We love our to do lists, setting and following guidelines, choosing what’s above the fold etc. I am well aware of this personality trait of mine, so when I was embarking on […]

My husband and I were currently homeless, living in separate cities out of boxes and suitcases and road tripping constantly but I decided there was no time like the present to start a side project.

Home Design: Updating with Wallpaper

The 2016 summer months have been filled with home renovations following our relocation to Pensacola, FL. We bought a house built in 1938 that has been updated periodically which is filled with plenty of charm and potential. There were endless days of painting, scrubbing and power-tooling (drilling, sanding and the like) that made our arms/neck/back ache for a week; however, when a […]

Summer Melon Daze

Some days you just have to play around and remember all the little changes you can make to create. I love patterns so recreating using these watercolor watermelons I did a while back is fun and easy. As designers, many projects we labor over for so long trying to perfect every detail; therefore any quick creative gratification is refreshing!

The Buzz on Mead

Lately my husband has been turning our living space into brew stations. I encouraged the hobby with some beer brewing kits, not knowing what the takeover would look like. Not only have we been collecting and saving bottles for the brewing process but now he has decided to venture into brewing mead. I had no […]
