Typography Tuesday {8}

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I certainly did - it was actually pretty relaxing. I definitely didn't take on the Black Friday crowds, so that certainly helps the relaxation factor. Stay tuned for a few holiday gift guides in the next couple of weeks! I plan to highlight awesome yet wallet-friendly gifts for both guys and girls. In the mean time, here is a little typography in honor of the cold weather and one of my favorite holiday songs:COLDFonts used: Simon Script and KG Hard Candy Solid

 

Typography Tuesday {5}

Greetings from Palo Alto! I'll be posting about my day in San Francisco a little later, but first, I wanted to share something a little different for today's Typography Tuesday. Below is a free download (woo for free stuff!) for a desktop wallpaper that I created. It's currently the background on my MacBook - I needed something to remind me to chill the heck out from time to time. I think this accomplishes that, but it's still fun! Click on the photo for the full size and then save it to your desktop.  Enjoy!type

Invitation: First Birthday

Happy Halloween everyone! Last night I went with a bunch of friends to a haunted house in Philly, even though I hate being scared. It wasn't terrible. Sure, I jumped and screamed a little, but I think watching The Walking Dead has softened the blow a little. One word of advice? Don't mock the people who work there. I told one zombie lady that her asylum-style head cage would actually make a great wedding centerpiece. I was serious - it looked like a vintage lantern. She didn't seem to like that comment though and tried to make me go through the house by myself. Nice try, crazy lady. Not happening. Anyway, today's post is dedicated to a first birthday invitation I designed for my godchild and soon-to-be niece, Lindsey. Reese's sister, Sara, wanted a pink and gold theme, so I worked with the colors and her Pinterest board to design this sweet yet simple invite. I love the colors (they're actually my wedding colors!) and the fonts I found are adorable. Can't wait to see Sara's amazing decorating at the party!
