these are a few of my favorite things

Peonies | French bulldogs | Sweatpants | Grilled cheese sandwiches | Notebooks I Iced coffee | Traveling | Lightning bugs | Roasted marshmallows

I’m always intrigued by the cool icons my husband creates for the UI design work he does, so I decided to take a stab at making some myself! Mine are just a wee bit less technical, but I had fun honing my Illustrator skills nonetheless :-) So if you’ve ever wished there was an icon for, you know, sweatpants or a jar of lightning bugs, your prayers have been answered!

what should i blog about

I’m always a bit jealous of bloggers that churn out an endless amount of super creative posts day in and day out because, unfortunately for me, inspiration never seems to come in a nice and steady stream. There are days when I can’t churn out posts fast enough with all the ideas buzzing around in my head, while on other days, uhhhh not so much.

So last weekend, I decided to amass a little vault of blog post ideas in the form of a fun interactive generator called What Should I Blog About? I’ll certainly be using it when I’m racking my brain over what to write about, and I hope you’ll find it useful as well :-) Enjoy!

fun with colors

As a designer, I often find myself drawn to the same colors over and over again – shades of blue and gray are my happy place! Unfortunately there’s nothing more annoying than finding the perfect palette for a particular project before realizing you’ve already used it in 5 other things. Sigh. New color inspiration to the rescue! After spending some quality time with Photoshop, here are a few fun pairings I’ve come up with on the road to color exploration!

summertime and the livin is easy

I know it’s not technically summer yet, but it’s 90° today, and that is certainly close enough in my book. Prep your desktop for the upcoming season, and start dreaming of icy popsicles every time you fire up your computer!
