Happy Halloween!

I know it’s not Friday yet, but I’m taking off the rest of the week to be productive! Tonight: working on some self-promotion, putting away 87 loads of laundry, wrapping up a few things for some clients, making Bob & I’s Halloween costume, hanging out with some girlfriends, packing to go out of town….what a jam packed night!

So, on that note, have a Happy Halloween and a great weekend!

New Logo? For me?

For those of you who are a graphic designer – you probably have the same problem I do. Which is, the person you design for absolutely last is yourself.  In midst of everything that’s going on I threw this little number together last what. What do you think? I think the colors need to be switched up a little, but at least its a start!

Etsy Love: Ice Cream Social

The next couple of weeks are going to be pretty crazy for me. Designing for three weddings, an event planning business, a birthday party, my regular clients, running an Etsy store . . . the list goes on an on. I can’t complain though – this is what I love to do. I’m especially dying to show you an itsy, bitsy peak to Jessie & Chris’ Save the Date . . . but I can’t. She might kill me.

Anyway, I did want to share an adorable Etsy shop, Ice Cream Social. Visit their  blog too!

Hello! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I finally got to spend a little time outside on Sunday (thank god)! I think I was starting to get a little stir crazy. Anyway, I ended my weekend here (Skyline Drive) and I’m a happy girl.
