Project Life / recent things

Left Page
This past weekend Jordan and I finally went on a date to check out a local theater. We saw boyhood and grabbed a bite to eat. I love adding hidden notes, so I wrote a sweet letter on the backside of the ticket.

Right Page
Last wednesday night some awesome creative ladies were in town for a golive event where they help entrepreneurs launch a website in 2 days! (learn more about that here) But after the event they invited local creatives and bloggers to meet up. I was worried it was going to be awkward...but everyone was really nice and I met some really cool people. I think I need more creative meet ups in my future.

Freebie / menu

I've been trying to eat healthier (january cliche yes) but I've finally kicked this cold I had for the past several weeks and feel like I can get on with those resolutions yay! So to get more organized in the kitchen I created this menu...and I'm sharing it with all of you. Just click this link and save the image. Be sure to change your printer settings to not have a border. If your printer adds a border then just trim it down :) Enjoy.

Ha I always make my meal plans so quickly that I misspell a lot of words...so I am aware that avocado is not correct in my photo ;)

project life / #tbt

Since I didn't really document last year on paper, but took a ton of photos I thought this year it would be fun to include a #tbt page with throwbacks to last year. Here's my first one from an NYC trip I was lucky enough to go on for work. And since I'd never been east of Texas it was an extra exciting adventure for me. See the rest after the jump.

Project Life / lazy days

I love foggy days, it just makes me feel calm. Here's a project life update.

Just life / rattlesnake ledge

This is definitely a pacific northwest treasure. If you ever find yourself driving on the west side along i-90 I recommend stopping here. I finally found the time to hike the 2 miles to the ledge this weekend, and can't wait for warmer weather to explore more!

Design / nicaragua cabo azul starbucks reserve

One of my favorite things to work on at Starbucks are the Reserve coffee labels. Colors really pop against that black background! Above are some quick photos I snapped with my iPhone of the label and promo signage I designed for Nicaragua Cabo Azul.

5 Faves Friday / black friday finds

I am not a huge fan of running around like a crazy person on one of the biggest shopping days of the year. There is absolutely nothing I can think of that I want so badly that I will stand in a line thanksgiving night to get. I enjoy a thanksgiving dinner and the naps that follow much more than people stepping on my feet for a flat screen. Late friday though I caught the shopping bug and decided to wander out. I was pleasantly surprised that there weren't too many people out, and I pretty much had the whole h&m store to myself. Below are links to my finds, (my favorite was the 25% off everything at madewell!) and it's not too late to score the same deals, most of the stores it seems are running their sales though cyber monday!

Decor / room makeover

A few weeks ago I got a crazy idea to paint a wall in the bedroom black. So I did. Here's an update of where I'm at with the decor. I can't wait to do some antiquing to find some art for the walls and maybe a few more vintage looking pillows for the bed. Also I apologize for the bad photos, I have no excuse other than I need to work on my photography skills (that's on the list). More photos after the jump, let me know what you think.

Design / starbucks cards

These are a few of the cards I got to work on for the starbucks card display this holiday season. One year ago when I started at the studio and they told me it was time to start concepts for 100 cards I was so excited, and now I'm even more excited to see all that hard work come to life. See more of the sketching process for a couple of my faves after the jump.
