It’s month two of the monthly mixtape project! Sorry for the slight delay thus presenting March’s playlist in April… but consider it an April Fool’s joke!
You can listen to Alex’s creation right on Spotify.
March ‘14 Mixtape - Spotify
The whole thing just made me want to lie on a beach somewhere… T minus one month till that dream becomes a reality.
Alex and I are collaborating on (what I hope will be) a new monthly project.
He’s good at music, and I am… not so much. The only way I discover anything these days seems to be through hearing it played in grocery stores. Not typically a great way to culture your senses.
So I asked Alex to start making me monthly mixes (an old pastime used to woo collegiate coeds). I would then take his mixtape and “illustrate” it, giving me a new monthly excuse to work on some basic design skills.
The first product of this collaboration is what you see here. Follow the link below to listen to the mix on Spotify*. Let’s see if we can keep this thing going for awhile.
February ‘14 Mixtape - Spotify
*There is one song missing on Spotify, because they didn’t have it… Youtube it if you want!
(Yes, I realize it’s March. We are planning a wedding, and that stuff just takes more time than you would think.)
Hey there friends and awesome people - check out my new biddness cards!
These sexy lil’ things look amazing thanks to the beautiful couple who run Knockout Letterpress. Printed on bamboo stock with gold edging, they knock your socks off in person.
If you’re looking to do some letterpressin’ yourself, look no further than Knockout. They knocked it out of the park for me.

Here’s wishing you a happy day of love with whomever and whatever makes your life special.
(Alex and I can be seen here, accidentally posing like sixties folk artists…)
The result of our first ever creative night. Where the TV goes off, the computers go away and the music comes on. Accompanied by booze and King Crimson.
A little sneak peek of our engagement photo shoot with the amazing and talented Jenna Bascom.
We were completely frozen, but somehow Jenna managed to make us look happy and warm.
We turned my design for our save the date into an awesome tote bag for our wedding guests staying at nearby hotels! Will be filled with water bottles, chocolate and Advil to cure any and all hangovers.
To kick off 2014, I am (finally) launching my website for design and front-end web development! I built it from the ground up and learned a ton throughout the process. It will likely be a work-in-progress forever, but pumped to finally get it out there. HUGE thanks to Suzanne Rozier for all her amazing support, tutelage and advice.
Looking forward to updating soon with new projects!
