Wintry Ombre

Happy New Year! It's a little cold and gray out here but this wintry ombre is making me feel a little better about the chill :)

Product Love: Windowpane Plaid

Happy almost Thanksgiving! We're wrapping things up at work early today in preparation for the long weekend, but I thought I'd close out with a post about my favorite pattern — windowpane plaid! Perfect for winter!

Fun Branding Project: Skulls & Chocolate

My friend Ashley approached me a few months ago to help her develop a logo for her Etsy shop, Skulls & Chocolate. As a historian and archaeologist respectively, Ashley and her husband share a love for antiques, skulls, all things mid-century, western and southwestern. Ashley also happens to be the best thrift store scourer I've ever met. With that in mind, they opened a Etsy shop, selling wares from a historical perspective. It was one of the most fun logos I've ever designed, so I thought I'd share the results!

Happy Belated Halloween

Happy Halloween! Hope you had a good one :) Here are our costumes this year:

Pinboard to Follow: Mint

Sometimes you need a little color in your life. And what's nicer than soft minty mint? Pinner Margherita Antinori has a pinboard dedicated to all things minty, and it's lovely. It's pretty amazing how pleasing a field of a single color can be, especially when the color is oh-so-pretty.

Moody Moodboard

My first date with my fiancé was after Denver's annual Zombie Crawl. Our first kiss was with fake blood on our faces (gross, I know, but it was fake. And mint flavored!). We got engaged on Halloween after he posed as a trick-or-treater and rang the doorbell. So it only makes sense that our wedding should have the same sort of...overtones.

I'm not talking about a Halloween-themed goth wedding here. But I knew from the beginning that our day should have a certain moodiness to it that just seems right. Below is a preliminary-ish look and feel that I'm working with. We're getting married in a Victorian mansion by City Park and a mysterious, darkish feeling just seems right.
