I need your help!

Mar 31, 2010

So as all of you may have noticed, most of my personal photos look like a toddler got a hold of a camera and went to town. My camera used to be a good one…but over the years has been dropped one-too-many times. And then there were all those trips to the beach…yeah, okay maybe […]

When I’m not rearranging furniture, painting, crafting, or creating in general, I’m here: (click to enlarge) Yep, that would be my cubicle – the glamorous life of one in marketing.  Happy Monday!

Today was a wonderfully relaxing, restorative day. The day started off with a bit of house cleaning, organizing, furniture rearranging and fresh Spring flowers.  Then on to projects! I’m really getting into woodblock printmaking and stenciling, and today I spent a good long while getting reacquainted the process. I hadn’t realized how long I’d been […]

It’s Friday!

I’ve had a few design epiphanies this week. The majority have been brought on by my web wanderings and discoveries of some pretty fun places to visit. Another notable place of epiphany: on the running trail with the husband – who knew running could inspire such things!  For fancy fonts of all shapes and sizes […]

Yellow, My Friend

Mar 26, 2010

 When I was a blonde I never wore yellow. I heard from someone, at some point, that blondes shouldn’t wear yellow, and it stuck. I now wish I could smack that person. Now as a brunette, I don’t really give a flying bahoo about what anyone says about yellow. I love it. I’m still on […]

Big Bloom Love

Mar 24, 2010

I’ve come down with Spring Fever. Flowers, sunshine, iced tea, sun dresses, large bodies of water – bring it on! My mind has been wandering to tropical locales and beach ware this week, and Emersonmade’s gorgeous creations aren’t helping…how can a girl think about work when she could be frolicking through a field wearing one […]

Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I’ve heard it in the chillest land, And […]

Elf love

Mar 23, 2010

Okay, I’m in love. LOVE. How I haven’t known about this for all of my makeup-wearing years is beyond me. e.l.f cosmetics – all products are $1. One buckaroo. (With the exception of their mineral line, which are $3 a pop.) And apparently these aren’t scary ghetto knock-off cosmetics either. I recognized the label from […]

SJR Update

Mar 22, 2010

Just a quick little ditty for this Sunday eve: I increased my mileage this week to 3 miles each training day, and things are going great. I need to start going on “long runs” on the weekends, but was happy to get out yesterday and do the three. The river pathway is so gorgeous – […]
