Design Process

LG_MOODBOARD

In need of a major design break so decided to jump on and share the moodboard for the branding project I am currently working on.

Isn’t it joyful? YES! Cheery + upbeat is definitely what we are going for! This moodboard is for an artist and teacher who is interested in cultivating a culture of joy, compassion and love that will have a ripple effect onto others and make the world a better place. We are working on building a brand for her that is recognizable and professional.

I was just working on digitizing some sketches. I am playing around with organic circles and natural elements which she wanted to possibly incorporate. Having a lot of fun and can’t wait to share some of the progress. If you follow along on snapchat: saltmystic you may have seen some sneak peeks at some sketches.

Hi friends! This week flew by for me! I have been in a crazy whirlwind of save the date and invitation designing.  Lots of paper projects in the works and I couldn’t be happier.

So excited to get to creating, but for now mostly planning!

Madewell Spring 2016

01.23.16

Loving the 70’s influence I am seeing in the Spring 2016 Madewell line (preorder only)! I always love a good jumpsuit and high-waisted fits– my current fave madewell denim. Can spring get here already?! I would like to pair my jeans up with some tees, please.

watch hill in the winterIt has felt really good to back on here more often sharing posts and inspirations as they came to me this week! Planning posts has always been really hard for me and I would tend to procrastinate making it happen when it was time too, or feel bad when I was too busy to make it happen. So my plan is to pop on when I feel like it…#notaplan

This weekend will be the first weekend really off for me since I can’t really remember, besides christmas and that doesn’t really count because the relaxing is so different. We are expecting a Nor’easter here on the east coast, so we boarded up the shop, and I thought it was the perfect time to take that winter break, I have been wanting so badly. Of course I will have to keep an eye on the shop and do some shoveling but I hope to fit in some serious R&R.

Here are some links for the weekend—click around!

Flashback // to before pinterest existed and the some mags, glue sticks and a notebook were your best friend.

Design //  I just love Maps & these are gorgeous! I am so excited to be working on over 3 different maps right for wedding invites. Can’t wait to see how they all come out!

Freebie // Downloadable Love Letters

Decor // Bookshelves

Shopping  // Really into Rich Greens for clothing right now, need a puffy and this is on sale, Like?

Pinterest // My Design // Color board has really been my favorite board lately!

Weddings // Organic Seaside Wedding 

Weekend Eats // Quinoa With Chai-Spiced Almond Milk
