all new

A new name, a new blog and a new shop ...

Even though I'm taking a break from blogging, I haven't stopped finding inspiration on the world wide web. I am now tagging stuff on Pinterest, which in my mind is a blog without all of the copy. Please follow me!

keep dreaming

I ran across Dunton Hot Springs on Cup of Joe last night. It is down in the San Juans, near my old stomping ground of Durango. I thought it would make a wonderful, kid-free vacation for me and T. And then I saw their rates. Whoa! Beauty comes with a price.

Check out this wedding. You can rent the whole place out for you and your wedding guests. Pretty swanky!

beautiful, free fonts

I just stumbled onto The League of Moveable Type, created by A Good Company. It is an open-source type foundry that raises the standards of free fonts. I love it when designers are lovers, not fighters. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!

ps - all of you creatives out there ... A Good Company has also created a template portfolio site. The design is simple and straightforward, allowing your amazing work to speak for itself.

My friend Janet of Oijoy Photo is so incredibly talented. She makes her work seem effortless and ends up with AMAZING pictures. I am envious of her abilities. It was such a great weekend with her.

I miss and love you Janet. Thank you for taking the trip!

i'm back

Phew. I feel like I have been in a deep deep fog. The hardest part of having three kids is the constant chaos that owns our house. I love it. And I would not trade it for anything. But now that the kids are back in school and H is sleeping more regularly a quiet morning is worth more than it ever was before. I am taking new jobs and trying to catch up on all of my blog inspiration. Three months can leave me feeling rusty. Here are a few things that I am liking:

The new West Elm catalog. Great pops of color.

Doublenaut. Beautiful color and design!

This September issue of the NewYorker was incredible. It got me through any sort of post-partum I might have had.

And the current soundtrack in our house is Mumford and Sons radio on Pandora. Great tunes.

Here is what we have been working on for the past two months. Hazel is awesome.

T and I had a great time participating in ArtCrank this year. There was so much good work. Here is our poster.

another family affair

Tom's cousin has a children's music class in Chicago (via Music Together). I just did a quick logo for her.

two great designers

I discovered this beautiful iPhone app on BloesemKids. Finally ... a well designed kid's app. Most of you already know it is not common. The illustrator of these adorable animals is Ryan Clark (who works for Forge in Dayton, OH). Be sure to check out his other animals (and get your free iPhone wallpaper).

And through GrainEdit I found local Denver designer, Justin Fuller. Goodness he is good. It is nice to see that great designers are everywhere.

unbelieveable dalton ghetti

Would you check out these pencil tip sculptures?!? I am in awe of the detail.
