Crushing on…

3 May

Good morning! Happy Friday!  What are your plans for the weekend?  I am super excited because Jonathan and I are headed to Spokane for the weekend!  The annual Bloomsday race is on Sunday in Spokane so we plan to run it.  As most of you know, I am not a runner but my sister and I plan to run as much as we can and then just have fun walking the rest.  I am also really excited to see all our friends one more time before our big move!

Here is what I have been crushing on lately.  I LOVE this striped pencil skirt from J. Crew!  It’s just so beautiful and you could wear it with so many different things!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! What are your weekend plans?  Jonathan and I have a big (and exciting!) decision to make over the weekend.  Our big move to Milwaukee is getting closer and closer, leaving us with lots of future planning and decision making.  Hopefully I can share details soon!

I have also been working on some really fun design projects lately.  And, today I’m extra excited because I just picked up some beautiful prints from the print shop for one of the projects!  I will be packaging up some pretty paper to drop in the mail today!  I will share this fun project with you as soon as I can!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Ps. I posted the above picture because it reminds me so much of Oregon!  Jonathan and I love going on a hike near house that looks just like this!  Especially the misty sky!

March Desktop Calendar

1 Mar

Happy March!  Can you believe it is March 1st already?!  I have a new desktop calendar for you to download.  I am dreaming of spring so I thought I would incorporate fun spring colors into the design.

What are your plans for the weekend?  I am so excited for this weekend because one of my best friends will be staying in Portland so Jonathan and I will be driving up to stay with her!  Yay for getting to see friends!  I am thinking we will have to partake in really good food, and maybe some pedicures!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  Here is the desktop calendar to download.  Enjoy!

Happy Friday!  I am so excited for the weekend!  Do you have any fun plans?  Jonathan and I are heading to Portland today to pick up a good friend who is visiting, and hang out with one of my best friends!  We have reservations at one of our favorite restaurants where I am planning to order one of my favorite things – a cheese board!  Any one else with me that cheese boards are heavenly?!

Also, my birthday is on Sunday (I share a birthday with the fabulous Michael Jordan!) so we plan to spend the weekend celebrating that as well.  Although we are living far away from all of our friends and family, I feel so lucky that I still get to spend my birthday with friends!  What a treat!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Ps.  The above photo I took the other weekend up at the coast when it was so sunny and beautiful.  I keep having to pinch myself because I can’t believe we get to live so close to the Oregon Coast!

February Desktop Calendar

1 Feb

Happy Friday friends!  And, happy February!  What are your plans for the weekend?  I am excited because Jonathan’s grandma is visiting on Sunday, and we have plans to head out to the coast for some tasty seafood.

Today I have a February desktop calendar for you.  For this design I wanted to incorporate a little hint of Valentines flavor while still keeping it versatile and modern.  Enjoy!

Happy Friday!  Today is kind of my weekend because Jonathan and I both have today off.  He has to work the rest of the weekend so we are trying to fit in as many fun things today as possible!  We made the most amazing homemade glazed donuts for breakfast, and I can’t wait to share the recipe with you!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  Here are a few fun things from around the web this week:

Happy Friday!   I am so happy it’s Friday!  This weekend couldn’t come soon enough for me this week!  I am excited for tomorrow because my in-laws will be visiting for the day, and it will be so fun to see some familiar faces!  I made a reservation for our favorite restaurant so it will be fun to show them around town!

Do you guys remember this post about my upcoming DIY project?  Well, I plan to release that project on Monday, and I can’t wait for you guys to see it!  I think you will really like it!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Here are a few fun things from around the web:

Happy Friday dear friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful week!  What are your weekend plans?  Anything exciting?  My weekend will be full of art projects as all of my teachers have already laid it on thick!  But, I am excited to get back to drawing!  Jonathan has to work on Saturday so it will be a good opportunity to get it all done early, and then we can plan something fun for Sunday!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Here are a couple fun posts from around the internet:

It’s Friday!  This has been a busy week, making me extra excited for the weekend!  Jonathan and I are planning an epic hike with cozy scarfs and warm drinks.  We figured some fresh air and exercise would do us some good after the holidays.

I am also getting really excited for next week because I start up with my classes again!  This quarter I am taking Illustrator and Photoshop, Indesign, Drawing 2 and Color and Composition.  I  can’t wait!  As I shared earlier this week in my goal post, one of my major goals this year is to work diligently on a design portfolio.  I plan to design all my assignments with this in mind so that I can work to include them in my portfolio.  If you have any suggestions for creating a design portfolio, I would love to hear them!

Happy Friday friends!

Here are a few fun things from around the web:

Amazing Nutella cinnamon rolls

Directions for fabulous party hats (Like the one I made for NYE!)

Christmas Project 10.22.12

19 Oct

Alright friends, the big Christmas Project Release is almost here and I can’t wait to show it to you!  This Monday, October 22, is the day so make sure you check in to see what I have been working on.

Also, happy Friday!  The weeks seem to be flying by these days.  I can’t believe it is almost Halloween!  What are your plans this weekend?  I hope to have a semi relaxing weekend.  Jonathan has to work through the weekend and it is predicted to rain every day so I plan to spend most of my time indoors – probably working on my Christmas Project and taking lots of bubble baths.  AND drinking hot spiced cider.  Tis the season right?!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
