My 2017 Christmas Wishlist

Daniel and I don’t really plan to do much in terms of gifts for Christmas this year. We’ve had a lot of expenses recently, and the tuition for his final semester of school in the spring is crazy expensive. We might get a few new items of clothing (things we need), but that’s probably it. [...]

Neutral Booties Follow-up

Hey guys! Remember when I said my inspiration for neutral booties was “Emily Henderson’s Rachel Comey goes-with-everything shoe collection”? Remember how I said I can’t afford $400 shoes? Well, both of those thing are still true. And all of the boots I shared I still think are great finds, but none of them were quite [...]

Neutral Booties for Late Summer & Early Fall

I’ve been on the hunt for a good pair of neutral (nude, blush, tan) booties for fall. I’ve been trying to downsize and simplify my wardrobe so getting dressed doesn’t require much thought and everything matches everything. I know a pair of neutral booties would get a lot of use!

Ever wondered how to make your own beer? Our State has you covered. Go here to download a PDF guide I illustrated. It’s a bit slow to load (3 hi-res pages) … just have patience; it’s worth it.

25 is almost here!

Last year,  I shared a rather deep blog post as my 24th birthday was approaching. I ended the post with the hope that 24 would be a fantastic year, and it was. I don’t have a letterpress studio (yet) and I still haven’t gone star-gazing, but I traveled; went to museums, concerts, ballets, etc.; continued to [...]

Typefaces for Editorial

I was doing some typeface research at work today. All day. It was a great day. Am I crazy? Two things it takes a long time for me to get sick of perusing: 1) chairs, 2) anything typography-related. I’m working on finding some new typeface options for body copy, so easy to read serif typefaces [...]

Halloween is a fun time of year because it gives me a great excuse to be crafty. This year I decided to be Maleficent, for no other reason than I wanted to make her headdress. Some wire, masking tape, black spray paint, tulle, string, and a headband, plus two hours of time, and my costume [...]
