May Around The Web

Summer is upon us and May is already coming to a close! This month started out with our California trip and so much has happened since then! This month I’ve been working hard on an internal project on top of some fun lettering assignments, Dale and I have celebrated two weddings (with another this weekend), we spent a weekend at the lake for my Grandma’s birthday, and I’ve been to lots of Holiday Mart meetings and a few Fusion classes. The rest of our summer will be much more laid back and I’m looking forward to time at home and (hopefully) the pool. This month I also loved The Everygirl’s Summer Bucket List. I’m definitely adding the DIY Popsicle to my summer to-do’s!

September Around The Web

Happy Fall! I know September is a little early to be thinking about my Christmas list, but Grace Bonney's new book In The Company of Women is right at the top. I'm very jealous of everyone who gets to go to one of her book tour events in October. Here are few other things I stumbled across this month: 

Personally, September was full of visits from friends and time spent focused on creative renewal at work. Hopefully you found some inspiration this month as well!


February Around The Web

February is one of my favorite months of the year because I get to celebrate Valentine's Day and my birthday in the same week! This month also was full of wonderful inspiration around the web, and I loved    A Beautiful Mess's Palm Springs Kitty Scratch House DIY. I need to make one for my kitty, Otto.

This month at Hallmark my team was busy working on Valentine's Day cards for NEXT year. I loved seeing all the heart day inspiration floating around the internet this month, as well as all the beautiful cards in stores. I also had the opportunity to visit KU and help Hallmark recruit interns for next summer! My internship sometimes seems like it was a long time ago, and other times I feel like I was just an intern –     but I loved being back on campus and in the design building.

Personally, my wonderful family and friends made this one of my best birthdays ever. I enjoyed dinner at Lydia's in KC with my whole extended family, and a fun weekend in STL with friends. I also loved getting together with friends to watch the Oscars. Now here are a few of my favorite links:

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week!


Snapshots

Happy Friday! I love photography, but have found I rarely spend the time taking pictures unless it is a special occasion like a trip. I hope that I can continue to share some snapshots from the more mundane details of my life because I find they are an interesting reflection of the present moment. Valentine's Day is on Sunday so I arrived home on Wednesday night to beautiful flowers, and I am loving my new "OK" vase from Oh Joy's Target collection. Other details include Otto (plus his constant ability to interrupt any activity), The Five-Minute Journal, and an adorable llama I bought at Renegade Chicago. Enjoy!

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. —Mark Twain
