Project 365 Things Day 329 // Truth

Sorry I lost my gusto on the 365 Project a bit—I have been missing a few days here and there and I think it is because I am planning on what’s next for 2014 and also a lot of my attention is going to my clients and design work.

I am doing my best to keep up and follow through—which is not always easy. This project has been fun, definitely something I am happy to have done and still doing. A lot has come from just doing the exercise of checking in each day. It has caused a few challenges for me, one being that I think it prevents me sometimes from spending time on other posts that I really want to share, which end up never being shared. I almost started to feel restricted a bit even though there really isn’t any boundaries and I kept it pretty open for the most part.

As the project comes to a close I think I will blog will be more spontaneous—which is what I like a bit more. I won’t feel obligated to do it everyday and if I can’t write or blog at the moment, I won’t.

So for the last 36 days, I can’t promise I will post everyday but I sure will if it feels right and good.

P.S My one year anniversary for the blog is this Saturday!

Project 365 Things Day 324 // Put this on your “to watch” list.

The Way Way Back

I mentioned briefly that that I watched this movie in my catch up post but I don’t think I really emphasized how great it was.

I LOVED it. Yup all caps—easily on my favorite movie list. I am a big fan of Sam Rockwell and thought Steve Carell played a pretty great a**hole and also playing against his usual gig.

It is charming, heartfelt comedy that makes me want to hit up the water slides next summer ; )

feel good things

Project 365 Things Day 323 // Feel Good Things

Sometime we have our moments…and that is why we have our go to feel good things:

Thankful App // What could be more uplifting than taking a moment and noting what you are grateful for? Works like a charm and always puts everything in perspective. I downloaded this app about a month ago and I try to check in at least once a day to note some things. It also has a section for quotes so you can go through if you need an extra pick me up. Also it has a nice clean design—score.

The Good Life Project // Every week there is a 40 minute show. The show is all about entrepreneurs, artists, authors and thought leaders telling their story. “The common theme is – people building deeply-meaningful businesses, bodies of work, movements and careers, as well as world-class experts.”

Calm App & Calm.com // We always wished we could push a button and instantly feel calm, now you can. The Calm App is for relaxation and meditation. There is relaxation exercises, music and beautiful nature scenes.

ENJOY!

Project 365 Things Day 321 // CATCH UP TIME

How was your weekend?! Mine ended up being pretty good. It started off insanely busy and has eased into a nice relaxing weekend mixed in with some work and meetings. Dave and I went out to Olio for dinner and came home and made some Ruby Red cocktails and watched The Way Way Back (which I LOVED) and popped in one of our favorite movies Green Street Hooligans. We may have a few too many cocktails, but we were saved by the most delicious lattes this morning from Washington Street Cafe. I had a wedding consultation this morning and dropped off my prints for the Art=Gift show opening at the Hygienic this coming Saturday.

I can’t believe we are really heading into mid November. It really is crazy, I have so much to share!!

Here are the latest happenings & visuals to come soon for design projects, I promise.

• I finished up 2 branding projects and a website. Need to get the portfolio updated and let you in on some of the process. I am currently working on a few branding projects, baby shower invitations, wedding invites, save the dates and a new website for the Fairfield Bread Co. Whewww!

• I have been adding new products to my Etsy shop for the past month,including these new iphone cases. I have been trying to get at least 2 new items a week up and its getting there. Just happy to be following through on some ideas I have been brewing. Keep your eye out for new products weekly.

• I was a part of this pop-up shop put together by the CADC on Friday at Nora Cupcake Company. It was a lot of fun, sold some prints and cards. I also got a lovely pair of earrings from of the vendors. Here are some pics from the event.

• Did you see me over on brides.com? Here I am with some other really great Save The Date ideas.

• I have a gift guide for trendsetters over on Better Homes and Gardens website. I will share some of my favorite pics this week here on the blog— I kind of want everything on it! : ))

Hmmm what else? I know there is more…well for now I think that is it!

la belle aurore

#project365things: Day 320 // Where there is wine and cheese (especially goat cheese)— you show up.

I love tasting dinners. A little sampling of wine or champagne with a complimentary dish each containing cheese from a local farm. Heaven.

La Belle Aurore hosts the most delicious events in collaboration with local farms. They are also the newest addition to the client family, and I am super excited to share the new branding we are working on. Coming in the next month or so!

I need to make a major catch up post because I feel like everything I need to share is just stacking up again.

Cue the glass of wine & some quiet time.
