This week was very trying but there’s always bright spots if you look for them. Rocky always makes everything better. And, he is the most pampered dog in the entire universe. He loves organic chicken and organic cotton Pia Wallen cross blankets.
It feels good to be getting so close to finishing a project that’s been in the works for months — Rock n Roll Bride magazine. Editorial design is one of my biggest passions and even though it’s a lot of work (I do the art direction, design and production on these issues) it’s such a huge payoff to see it in print. Needless to say, I’m so proud of Kat for the effort she’s put into the content — we’re itching to show you the full thing!
During the week, a few packages arrived in the mail, even though I hadn’t been shopping. A confused grin spread across my face when I noticed a Kate Spade box on the doorstep. Huh?! When I tore it open, I was met with a glistening turquoise Palm Springs or Bust bracelet and a thank you note from Kat for (another) project we’d just wrapped. And then my client Susie surprised me with a box of chocolates from San Francisco. Really cheered me up — nothing can replace snail mail!
As the Austin and London Blogcademy dates creep closer, we’ve been putting together posters which we use to advertise with online and then put up at the events. These are always a nice little escape from client projects and a creative challenge to keep styles consistent while giving each city some iconic representation.
Have a great weekend, everyone. I’ll be hiding out getting Rock n Roll Bride ready for print and hanging with my two favorite boys, Joey and Rocky (always). It’s the simple things in life these days that mean the most to me: long walks, good dinners at home, surprises in the mail and texts from my mom.
Any plans you’re looking forward to?
