new year's eve.

one of my best friends and i decided to through together and impromptu new year's eve party. we had no fancy decorations, no creative details, but we had such a wonderful time.

work has been incredibly busy for both of us, so we had little time to really plan a completely coordinated sha-bang. we enjoyed excellent food and wonderful friendship, though, and i'm so glad travis and i were able to ring in the year with two of our closest friends.

i hope you rang in the new year in your own special ways and celebrated with those you love!

let the countdown begin!

there are only two more weekends left before christmas. have you made your lists and checked them twice?
if you're like me, you still need stockings to hang by the chimney with care. up for a fun project this weekend? try making these fun stockings:

aren't they precious? you can learn how to make your own by using martha stewart's template and tutorial. i would love to hear how they turn out.

happy creating!

anthropologie holiday windows.

i love ANTHROPOLOGIE's holiday windows. there is something so sweet about this simplistic window scene. snuggle up with a cup of warm cocoa and enjoy the rest of this beautiful afternoon!

from the kitchen of ...

looking for last minute christmas ideas? a set of recipe cards wrapped up in a gift basket for the kitchen is always a fun idea {and easy, too}! i think this year recipe cards have become one of my favorite things to design as i am slowly uncovering a desire to whip up new recipes in my own kitchen.

j&j field services.

i was recently able to step outside of my normal "paper" box and design something a little different -- a company logo. i've done so before, but usually for people i know, our family businesses, etc. i was honored to have another company in the community approach me to design their logo.

beautiful family.

this is one of my favorite christmas cards from last year. i love that it makes such a statement, yet there is very little to it. and of course it melts my heart when the family includes their pup.

trial and error.

remember the save the dates i posted yesterday? i thought i would share a few of the other designs we came up with to present to the client before they made their final selection. i love the one they ended up choosing, but i really enjoy the second postcard below, too.
