I've been keeping myself pretty busy managing my design services and adding prints to the shop, and when I'm not working on that I'm also working my day job and trying to have a life.
Consequently I've noticed myself putting blogging on the back burner, mostly because I need that time away from my computer to connect with the outside world!
This blog is never far from my mind, however. I still have so many ideas and things I want to write about, places I want to go with it, and yet they remain inside my mind waiting for the opportunity to come forward.
Though, if I've learned anything about blogging over the past couple years, I know that the inspiration and time tends to ebb and flow, and so I'm not too worried about it, but I do miss it!
One topic I probably won't run out of content for is design. I've always got something to share in that corner of my mind, I just hope you don't get tired of it ;)
So here's a wrap up of my most recent work (Apologies to everyone who already got spammed on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook... love youuuu!)
Below are two of my latest prints added to the shop...
(Pssst... I just ordered a bunch of mugs with the happiness quote - more on that later!)
(these also come as iPhone covers, pillows, stationary cards... etc.)
And here are THREE recent blog design projects... *phew!*
Chelsea at Red Velvet Rooster wanted a face lift from her previous DIY design. She loved the chalkboard trend and wanted in! I'm loving the simplicity, fonts, and cleaned up layout - I think my favorite part are the sidebar titles. Aren't they pretty?
I had helped Brin from Bold Butter Baby design her business cards to take to Blissdom a couple months ago, and she wanted that same look translated on her blog design. The chevron background was toned down, the layout more structured, and fonts more streamlined. I love how her new and improved look stays loyal to the brand her readers are already familiar with!
I just can't get enough of this one! Holly from The Oklahoma Peppler's was super easy to work with and trusted me completely. She gave me a few basic ideas of what she liked but admitted she was not too keen on design speak, that's why she hired me! :) So she gave me a color scheme idea and let me off my leash. I came back to her giddy with a great representation of my favorite design aesthetic, and I was so glad she liked it! Modern, clean, and bold - I'm head over heels.
...and onward, I go!
