Hey there

Hey there blog. It's almost been a year since I last blogged! YIKES!
I'd be surprised if anyone comes back to read it.

What has happened in a year you ask. Well Kyle and I got a puppy. Her name is Luna and she's stink'n cute!
One of my fabulous friends Erin is having a baby in May.
My other fabulous friend Rachel got married in November!
And my sister is getting married in August. Should make for some great times!

I've been longing to develop new designs for my etsy store, but my job is a super demanding. It leaves me little time to focus on my personal stationery. But I'm hoping to gear up new designs.

Here's a picture of Miss Luna when she was just a pup. She'll be a year in July.

Here's Gorgeous Rachel on her wedding day, with preggers Erin. She broke the news to us the night before.

My poor blog.

My poor poor blog. Well some of you might know... but I recently got a new job at a small business called Give My Regards To... Check it out.

It's a stationery, invitation and event planning business. It's a lot of fun BUT SUPER BUSY! I love the my new job because it's exactly the kind of business I want to get into. Through out my design career I realized I don't much care for the corporate designs such as, logo designs, brochure designs, flyers etc..... boring! So this job is really fun and I'm fully immersed in what I've always wanted to do. So much that, Eeek, I realized I haven't blogged in a long long time. And I've been behind on my stationery. Not much new stuff coming out. However this fall I'll be gearing up for my new 2009 desktop calendar. I can't wait to get started on it. I had so much fun with my last designs.

Stylish Sitting

Annechovie on etsy creates some great artwork out of simple everyday living ware items.
My favorites are the chair images.

I enjoy how her loud patterns contrast with either solid backgrounds or solid silhouettes of a vintage chair.

Her work is also being featured in Domino magazine. Very impressive!

Studio Mela for my Kitchen

So I really want to make my kitchen look more, how can I say it..... cute!
It's really lacking in a design look and it just has mismatched decorations from college.
Studio Mela is a great designer and she makes adorable art work.

My next step is to put her art work in my kitchen. I think it would be a great theme and I do love the color orange. It's my new favorite color. So if I decorate with little accents of orange, Studio Mela's work is the perfect fit.

Check her out.
She's also a local artist so GO MINNESOTA!

I am so excited for spring. It's just around the corner. The weather is slowly getting warmer, we can almost say good bye to the below zero temperatures. March is here, really, does anyone else ask themselves where in the world February went?

Check out my new note cards coming to my etsy shop. Spring blossoms.
