Take 3: Image Meets Type

April 11, 2012

One of my favorite aspects of being a graphic designer, is brand and typography research. These past few months, image and type have been a hot trend in the field…
1) Kling’s Spring campaign is stellar! As well as everything in their shop…
2) Wouldn’t you want to have coffee and breakfast with a buddy at this little corner?
3) This Beach Vacation print reminds me of those childhood memories of summer I miss!
Today is my little Veronica Rose’s first birthday. Hands down the fastest year of my life so far! Definately bittersweet. It is hard to see your babies grow up but exciting to see their little personalities grow. She will be celebrating along with her brother this weekend (both April babies) and I will be sure to share a peek next week along with her last month by month photo:)

Since Gabe and I gave up sweets for Lent, we might of indulged just a little bit yesterday;)
It was such a beautiful Easter, and I hope you had one as well! Halleluiah He is Risen!
Especially loved seeing Gabriel in a bow tie, and Veronica in a bonnet. I died and went to heaven.
P.S. Its the last day to enter to win an Ikat Print from Lona de Anna!

The True Beauty Files:
A lookbook for the modern modeste.
“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” 
~ Audrey Hepburn

DIY: Crochet Bib Necklace in Neon or Mint

April 5, 2012

I have a very easy, trendy piece for you to DIY today:)
I came across this picture on pinterest, and there was no source as to where to buy the necklace(anyone know?), so of course I thought, just DIY;) There are many color options to choose from, but I was crazy about the neon with black, and I have a current obsession with the seafoam color…
Supplies:
Fabric crochet pieces (find mine here)
Spray paint in any color (you could also use rit dye)
Chain
Jumprings
Lobster clasp
(all metal supplies can be found on etsy or in a craft store)

Instructions:
1) Spray paint your fabric crochet piece, and let dry.
2) Attach jump rings to the top sides of the piece. Add the chain (measure beforehand) and finish by attaching jump rings and lobster clasp at the ends.
3) Style with a simple tank or dress for diverse looks and enjoy:) 
*I am taking a break from the internet tomorrow to take some time to reflect and remember Good Friday. Will be back for an Easter post, so until then!
