to see what “that bar” is all about.
that it’s SUNNY!!!!!!!

I can’t wait:
to finally watch the Lost finale tonight. {note: don’t spoil it!!!}

I’m a bit nervous and incredibly excited:
about an upcoming photoshoot. {details will have to wait, but it’s SO worth it}

happy friday!!! see you in JUNE! whoa. already?


work + update

since I’ve been talking about how busy I’ve been lately, here are a few things I’ve been working on:a save the date email for Melissa and her fiancĂ©, Jose! Melissa contacted me for a save the date email to let her friends and family know that she and her fiancĂ© will be eloping to beautiful Sedona, then inform them of a reception party at a later date.
Christine contacted me in search of some allergy icons. Christine creates play date cards and has a great site where you can purchase cards for your own children! she wanted the milk allergy icon to put on her own son’s card.

I plan to update the shop soon with some more headers and some pre-designed recipe cards and note cards. aside from that I’ve been working on custom orders and developing the new site for Sunali. I’m also working on a new project that is really special and unique and I’m quite excited about it. it’s just in the beginning stages, but I hope to have this complete in time for the peak of summer.
until then, I can create a wide range of customized designs for you including: unique illustrations, blog buttons, blog headers, customized calling cards, business cards, note cards, and more.
if you haven’t already, check out my shop for some pre-designed headers.

and as always, thanks for being loyal readers!!!


to birk or not to birk?

before our trip to Florida, dlb bought a pair of Birkenstocks. I’ve been a little jealous ever since, wanting a new pair of comfortable sandals for myself. the weather hasn’t been just right yet, but I know it’s coming, and I need sandals.
I’ve had, what one might call, a love affair/dorkathon relationship with Birkenstocks. in 7th grade I got my first pair. I loved the cork of off them. then I wore my second pair all the time up until high school when I heard that “Birks were dorky and no body wears them anymore”. so I tossed my beloved shoes for something new because we all know how high school was: if you weren’t cool, you were just plain dorky.
so now that dlb has his new pair of Birks, I’ve been intrigued again, remembering that soft suede and cushiony cork that I loved so much. I checked out the site, and you know, the Women’s sandals really aren’t that bad if you steer clear of the ones with the big straps. but I’m still not convinced. I’m going to try some on this weekend and report back.

so what’s your opinion readers, Birk or no Birk?
