2019 Year of Good Thoughts Calendar

Hello, friends! I'm excited to share a few of my favorite pages from the 2019 Year of Good Thoughts Calendar I created for Hallmark. Each page features a quote from the Hallmark writing collection, and I loved bringing them to life with my lettering. It's available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores now!

NYC Part Two

Our weekend in NYC was mainly spent in Ken Barber's Freehand Lettering Workshop which was held at The Cooper Union. Both days we had lunch close to Cooper, the first day we tried Gemma at The Bowery Hotel and on Sunday we had a quick lunch at Korilla. Saturday evening we decided to explore Central Park and had a dinner reservation at The Loeb Boathouse. We had the best weather and I loved walking around the part and to 30 Rock after dinner. After that we headed back to our Airbnb to rest up for the next day.

Sunday evening was our last night in the city and we decided to take a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge after the second full day of our workshop! It was super crowded but the views of the city were amazing. After our walk we stopped by the 9/11 memorial and then headed to dinner before a show at the Comedy Cellar. I also have to note that we had amazing breakfasts at both Juice Generation and Bluestone Lane Coffee. I'm so grateful that Hallmark sent the three of us to NYC, we learned a ton and made the most of our few days in the city!

Thank You

Today I'm stopping in to share a "Thank You" card I recently designed for Hallmark, and to say thanks so all my family and friends who made my birthday yesterday so wonderful. I know 26 is going to be an exciting year – I already have so many big things planned. Happy Monday, everyone! (Also this card is even better in person, it has multiple layers of foil and screenprint with some added sparkle, too.)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Heart Day, everyone! While I won't actually get to celebrate until tomorrow, I wanted to pop in and wish you all a day filled with lots of love. AND to share this lovely Hallmark Vida card designed by Brittany Bange. She used Fieldsmith, the font Lila and I collaborated on, which I shared here. It's so exciting to see it used and out in the real world! I can't wait to see which Valentine's Day card Dale has waiting for me...
