Font Shopping

Buying fonts is one of the best parts of being a graphic designer. I can't wait to play with the beautiful and sweet Melany Lane font I purchased last week.

Holiday Spirit

If this doesn't get you into the holiday spirit, I don't know what will!
I'll hopefully be getting a real tree this weekend. 

Did you put your tree up yet?

Christmas Party Invitation

Every year my parents throw a Christmas party and I had the honors of designing their party invitations this year. The emphasis on typography and simple graphics make this invitation special. I can't wait to wrap up the leftovers from the party (my mom always goes overboard on the food)! 

(eek, please excuse the less-than-awesome photographs)

Thanksgiving Traditions

Thanksgiving Day is less than a week away. If I were to host Thanksgiving dinner, I would send out cute invitations like the one I created this morning (see below).

 My family doesn't have many Thanksgiving traditions, but maybe Mike (husband) and I will start some this year. This Saturday, we will be having a turkey dinner at our neighbors' house and I'm really looking forward to it. Maybe this will be the new tradition!

Updated Wardrobe

Now that I'm not dressing up for work everyday my wardrobe needs some help. When I have client meetings and other stuff outside my home office, I need some casual but dressy fashion ideas. I found some great inspiration for cooler weather outfits on Pinterest.
