This past month I’ve been on vacation, visiting family in Southern California and road tripping it, just like my childhood days. It’s been really fun and wonderful to be able to show my little boy the sights in Western America. I love passing through the many national parks in the area… just beautiful scenery all around. America the beautiful…
The little guy was darn well behaved – as much as can be expected – for such a long road trip. We drove over 3,000 miles by the end of our 1 week trip. Wowsers! Now it’s getting back into a slow groove at home with my parents and visiting with friends and family. I must admit that everything else has been on hold and slow moving… as I’m completely distracted!
That’s summer vacation for you…
Happy July 2014!

Can’t wait to see what you have been up to!
Last week I started a new mini creative practice. A daily design of a quote or phrase, basically words of wisdom and so far it’s been fun and satisfying. I’ve been posting every day on my instagram. Although I’m not sure where it will take me, it’s great to have accomplished something concrete every day, besides running around with the role of mommy. It’s interesting how a few words can really lift your day and change your perspective on things. Aren’t our minds so fickle?
To all the amazing dads out there… thank you for all the good you do. Happy Father’s Day!
Want a blast of creative inspiration and motivation? When I need a kick in the butt, I turn to my top video playlist to jolt myself back into action. These are must-see videos for all creatives!
When it comes to gift giving, I always struggle with finding the right item. Especially on a holiday like Father’s Day, it’s ever-so-more difficult to find a thing that is supposed to express the enormity of your love and appreciation. It’s really not possible, is it?
Over the years, I’ve realized that it’s the experiences that really matter the most, mean the most and are the most memorable for everyone. So this Father’s Day why not try gifting your love with a sentiment and your time by planning an activity that can be enjoyed together?
I think it’s the ultimate DIY!
Haha, but of course I had to design a card with a sentiment to go along with my idea. Nothing like a card to express your most heartfelt sentiments! I opted for a really minimal design this time around, would be so cool letterpress I think! Feel free to download, share and gift the printable love you card shown below. Enjoy!
