your days in one.




Working from home is pretty great. Although sometimes I get stir crazy and a little lonely, and other times I'm so overwhelmed by to-do lists that it's really easy to procrastinate. Also it feels like I'm in a time warp... how is it already Thanksgiving next week?

There are some fun projects on my plate right now: branding, book design, websites. The card above (from here) is a bit of color inspiration for one of the wedding invitations I'm designing and might be my favorite palette of the moment.

  1. I love it! So ... autumnal.

    (Is that a word? If so I think my Smart-o-Meter just went up 10 points.)

  2. But seriously, how is it Thanksgiving next week?! Aren't we still hanging out in March?

    Beautiful projects. I would love to step into your work space and see all your bits and peices of magic.

    (P.s. You guys should come with us to the grand canyon! if/when it happens.)

  9. Working from home is awesome. It does get crazy with kids when work/personal life tangle up at times, but it's so wonderful to do what you love. Hope you share what you have up your sleeve!

  13. I definitely can relate to your feelings about working from home. :) Let me know if you ever want to meet for lunch or to talk about design projects. It can get very lonely sometimes! (plus then I can pick up that ink) ;)

  14. answers:

    the mannequin/dress form was purchased from ebay.

    the purse is 'pilcro & the letterpress' from anthropologie, on super sale. the brand name convinced me.

  17. I work from home as well, and I know what you mean! I have a very strict system that I use to keep myself on track (though sometimes I absolutely throw it out the window). It's been the best way to make sure I'm doing what I need to! I love the peace of being at home, though.

  18. You're life is so lovely! Congratulations on 5 years and also going solo in your design work. So exciting!

  19. LOVE your blog! I just had to say that instead of just popping in as a newbie!

    I've decided heck with Thanksgiving, I'm already pulling stuff out for Christmas. What can I say, I am Canadian at heart, but loving my new California life. I just can't wait for American Thanksgiving to come and go before pulling out decor! Although, I am learning to slow down and just enjoy one season at a time...as you know, it goes by all too quickly!

    I am loving your projects. I am truly inspired! I am currently a graphic design student and love to have an idea of what I may one day look forward to when school is FINALLY done!

  21. so i just saw that your dress form was from ebay, because i really need one, and was going to ask where you got it- did you just search dress forms? would you suggest that being the best place to look? and im jealous that you got your purse on super sale! mine wasnt on as much sale...just a little...
