I always get a little sad when August comes to an end. In the Midwest, that means autumn is on its way (which is great) but autumn never stays long enough. Winter…well…winter overstays its welcome and makes you dream of summer. Rooftop pools, Jeni’s summer flavors, and weekend cookouts are com

I stumbled across this book/project awhile ago and it’s been in the back of my mind ever since. I tweeted about wanting to write letters to those I care about during the month of September. Obviously, I’ll be a bit busy with The 30 Day Photo Challenge (WHICH STARTS TOMORROW!) but I’m thinking

We spent a fabulous weekend in Indianapolis with The Cooks (Megan and Josh). I capitalize “The Cooks” because they’re kind of a big deal. When they’re not working on their amazing house, designing at their jobs, playing with their adorable pups, or involved in AIGA…they’re bl

This Monday Link Love is photo themed (of course). This photo really strikes me. Below is written: “This photograph is my proof there was that afternoon, when things were still good between us, and she embraced me, and we were so happy. It did happen. She did love me. Look, see for yourself!” WHALES

My little paper shop is now online! Click here to take a peek and maybe make a purchase? I hope to be adding to this store regularly with prints and stationery so bookmark it! There’s also a badge over on my sidebar too. I decided to re-launch my store through Big Cartel. It’s easier to […]

Fab.com. My new favorite thing. Fab.com features daily design inspiration and sales at up to 70% off retail. I snagged that Rifle Paper Co. print (for my kitchen!) and three Field Notes notebooks for $19! Best part? I got 10 of my friend to join Fab.com so I had $30 worth of credit. Aka…I didn’t [&h

You guys! ONE WEEK until the 30 Day Photo Challenge kicks off. I’m beyond excited. If you haven’t seen the list of photo challenges, click here (also displayed below this post). For those that will be sharing their photos here on my blog, below are the guidelines: Please upload them through my blog

Wow. I absolutely adore Ana Cabaleiro’s photography. She shoots in film and you can see her body of work here. It’s so inspiring now that the 30 Day Photo Challenge is basically a week away! Check back tomorrow for the official guidelines + the nifty uploader for you all to submit!

Random blog title, eh? Oh well, maybe it got your attention. This post is about YOU, readers. I recently asked on Twitter, “What do you want me to blog about??” I got a lot of response but I thought I should ask the same question here on my actual blog. Above are two examples of […]

Hello all! Hope your weekends were nice and relaxing. I’ve had LOTS of new visitors to the blog lately (particularly because of my 30 Day Drawing Challenge from earlier this year). I hope all you lovelies decide to keep reading! Three things I want to share with you today on Monday Link Love: An adorable

Hello my dears. Lots of exciting things have been happening in my design life and I’m excited to start sharing projects with you again. I feel like I haven’t posted anything that I’ve created since my site re-design! Anyways, lots of work during the week but I’ve left my weekends for fun

My girl crush #5 is on Mila Kunis. Whether she’s Jackie on That 70’s Show, Meg on Family Guy, or acting in some other movie, she always has the right amount of sass and style. Interested in reading about my other girl crushes? Read up on Natalie, Nicki, Cate, and Kate.

This week’s Monday Link Love is food focused. I’m well aware that our summers here in Ohio last HALF the time our winters stick around, so in a way I’m trying* to soak up all the hot, sunny weekends while they last. (* I say trying because I freaking LOVE autumn!) Magic Juice looks delicious.

My current wishlist includes: (1) Batik Salad Serving Set, (2) Soho Round Beverage Cart, (3) Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet, (4) Chemex Coffeemaker, (5) Fuji Finepix X100 Digital Camera, (6) Steel frame dishrack, (7) Fhi hair dryer What’s on your wishlist? And do you wait for someone to buy the things for you or

It was a relaxing weekend here in Columbus. I walked around our apartment and took a few random shots. My makeup being left out on the sink, Desh’s toys (intact and destroyed) covering our rug, my two film cameras sitting in the bag, homemade huevos rancheros (OMG YUM), and our bed…that we probably

My three most favorite things on the internet lately: ONE IOTA’s work for a local grocer. I loved reading why Annie likes shooting film. Weekly “Music Night.” I think Adam and I will start doing this.

Cy Twombly, an American artist, passed away at the beginning of last month. The news saddened me and memories flooded back to when I first discovered this magical painter that (for the first time in my life) seemed to create pieces that connected so well to my heart. To many that may seem silly but […]

On Sunday we spent part of our day at the Ohio State Fair and watched the Ohio Roller Girls. My talented and amazing friend Candace is a roller girl and we cheered her on alongside her daughter (how cute is she!?) and husband. All photos taken on my Pentax K1000. Check out more of my […]

Just some shots around the apartment + in the neighborhood. I didn’t notice until I was posting but that first photo matched my blog super well. Neat. I recently snagged a Pentax K1000 off Craigslist and these are from my first roll! I absolutely love the camera. While I was dropping them off to develop,

Happy August! A round up of three of my favorite things on The Internets lately. DesignLoveFest’s STYLE series. Absolutely love it. Herb and Dorothy, a documentary on Netflix Instant. It’s about a couple to lived off one of their salaries and devoted the other salary towards collecting modern art. P
