the wonderfully lovely sara lucero!

oh my goodness, i love this girl. sara is one of those people that you just feel like you've known forever upon meeting - in this case, upon email. :) she's super fun, stylish, hilarious, + an amazingly talented photographer - check out her work here!

i was absolutely giddy with excitement designing her logo + branding elements... i seriously could barely keep my mouth shut about her stuff!! + it makes me even giddier [is that word?] that she loves it!!

thanks sara for letting me be apart of your amazing-ness! :)

anyways, happy tuesday!!

my workspace + a confession

natural light is the best light, so i situated my workspace right in front of the window... where i can occasionally look up + admire the beauty of a lush green forest. seriously, did i just say that?! i never thought i would live in such an amazing setting.

sometimes i pretend i'm beatrix potter, illustrating an adorable book... or when i'm writing, i pretend i'm part of 'the inklings' getting ready to share the next chapter with the greats, especially on rainy days like today. yep, i'm that nerdy.

inspirational isn't even an adequate description of it... it's dreamy, really.

happy sunday!

monthly inspirational download....

for me, images evoke inspiration... [which is probably why i spend way too much time on pinterest] + since a lot of my time is spent working on my computer, i love to change up my background to keep it fresh.

the amazing shanna murray used to post monthly desktop calendars but stopped sometime last year, so my lovely friend + photographer, kelli trontel, + i decided to collaborate to offer a monthly desktop background that would not only stir up your creativity but also inspire + encourage you.

[just click the photo above, grab it + use it as a desktop!]

hope you enjoy + share the link with your comrades.
