Amber is the cousin of my best friend. She needed some help with her logo. Amber is an Art Teacher and does lots of artwork on the side for freelance. She does amazing hand lettering – I paid her to write our table numbers on some wood for my wedding. Check out her facebook page – I can’t seem to find her Etsy Site. Feel free to message her for requests – tell her Danielle sent you 🙂
I also created her custom business cards. And I created anchor patterns for her to use on social media (the backs of her business cards). And for her craft and trade shows – I found some anchor print scrapbooking paper and die cut some price tags.
My husband and I have been lifting weights since January and I’m just not seeing much change in my arm muscles. So today, I’m going to start a push-up challenge. Anyone want to join me? Being my designer self, I didn’t like anything I could find on google. So I created a printable sheet for you to keep track of your push ups. It fits perfectly on a 8.5×11 piece of paper. I added a few days so it was a solid 5 weeks, but after 30 days you are able to do 50 pushups!! Feel free to download it! I like to hang mine up right by my bedroom door so I remember 🙂
A good friend of mine wanted to send out invitations for her daughters birthday. We decided to do postcards (super fun and no envelope needed)! I love how these turned out. Pink and adorable for a one year old, with some polka dots for fun 🙂
See anything you like? Or want a custom invite, lets chat!
So it’s officially been a year since I’ve blogged…
Today I attended a workshop with Aaron Draplin.. if you don’t know who that is check out Draplin.com. He’s such an amazing cool dude. So much knowledge – but to him it’s all common sense. He inspired me to go back to what I enjoy doing – Helping People create an identity. And showing my work. I am going to try to start blogging things I’m working on. I’ve done a lot of invitations lately (wedding, baby shower, graduation, etc). And I want to share-out what I’m working on.
Just wanted to say hello and please be on the lookout for more posts soon!
Also, need a logo?? Hit me up! Let’s make something cool and awesome!
What is inspiration? By definition it is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially something creative. But inspiration can be anything, it’s personal. Maybe it’s an amazing photographer, a new invention, your kids, a movie, the runner you saw today on your way home, it can really be ANYTHING.
Welp. This still hasn’t become a habit! I’m getting better at taking pictures while making things, but not taking the time to blog! ONE DAY!
So today, I am going to show you a recipe called Bubble Pizza. I’m not sure where this recipe started, but my mom made this all through high school and I learned the recipe and it’s fantastic recipe. Quick. Easy. Memorable. This can easily be enlarged to feed lots of people (we often made this to feed the cheerleaders and basketball teams!). Sometimes, this recipe makes me one 9×13, sometimes 2, or a 9×13 and a 9×9. You never really know!
This weekend we were having a hard time trying to figure out a Christmas gift for my husband’s step-mom. So I decided to make her a magnetic board. I have done this before, but took pictures to show you the steps.
Things you need:
Photo Frame (you can use any size)
Sheet of metal (I found this with the duct work at Home Depot)
Fabric (Big enough to cover the metal and then some)
Hot Glue Read More »
Yesterday we had the honor to volunteer at Arlington National Cemetery to help lay wreaths on all the soldiers’ graves. There were more than 241,000 wreaths laid yesterday by tons of volunteers. They replicate this at many national cemeteries across the country. Over the USA, more than 900,000 wreaths were laid, which is amazing. We were told, before laying your wreath, to read the name of the individual out loud, so you can think about what they did for us and our freedom. We were able to lay about 4 wreaths each. But before the wreath laying, we got to watch the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It was a GORGEOUS day, and the sun was perfect:) Here are some photos from our day at Arlington Cemetery. Read More »
I have talked a little bit about my wedding. I wanted to give you a look to what it turned out to be. I submitted my wedding on StyleMePretty. I was looking for a place for the bride to submit on TheKnot.com, but I can’t find it (please comment if you have a link!). So photography credit goes to the wonderful Janne Photography. Here is what I submitted as a description for my wedding.
Jordan and I got married September 6th, 2015. This was also our 10 year anniversary of being together. November 1, 2013, Jordan I went to this little spot in Cincinnati, Ohio that overlooked the city. Just a casual night, waiting for time to pass before meeting up with friends. Before I knew it, Jordan was on one knee, PROPOSING! I had no idea this was coming, but was thrilled it happened! That winter, my mother and mother in law started wedding planning. We visited our outdoor venue when it had snow on the ground and booked it. Taste tested caterers and cakes and attended a bridal expo.
