Check It Out!

This post is a little outside my normal realms of bloggage, but it’s concerning graphic design (kind of) so I figure I can count it under the design category (sorta). Whatever, I’m just excited about it.

So I just finished putting together a branding package for a friend of mine who’s starting up her photography business, and I have to say I’m pretty excited about it. We worked together to design her logo, letterhead, business card, and her website. She was great to work with and super patient with me, and she knew what she wanted. Which is always nice.

Anyway, here’s what we came up with for her branding package:


And to see her website you can check her out here. (see the follow button? I’m sure she’d love for you to click it!)  She’s just starting out, but she’s really amazing. She took pictures of my girls for me when my littlest was just 2 weeks old and she was FABULOUS. She’s going to do some family shots for us in the fall when Baby B is a little bigger and can, you know…sit up.

Anyway, here’s a sample of what she did for me:


Priceless right?

Anyway, if anyone in the Salt Lake area needs a photographer, I highly recommend her! And if anyone needs blogger design help or some branding of their own…email me in a couple months. lol. No really, I’d love to help. I love doing it.

That’s all for now! Happy Tuesday!

Heart Palpitations

So I saw this contest link on the lovely Chantele Sedgwick’s blog and within 20 minutes I had entered.

Am I the only one who gets incredibly nervous when sending other people my work? I was rejected over and over for book one, I haven’t even queried book two and it’s been a year since I even WROTE the thing.

But I thought, hey, what could it hurt? Maybe this is the jump-start I need to get back on the query wagon. Either way, I entered, with book 2, and you should too, cuz why not? Life is short right?

In other news, life is BUSY! My husband and I both got promotions this month, which is an AMAZING blessing, but also means a whole lot more work. I’m now the Design Director (aka ONLY designer) for Noah’s and we’re planning on, oh, like six buildings this year. How many did we do last year with two designers, you ask? Oh…one.

Yeah. This should be interesting. And super exciting.

And my husband just got promoted to a job where he’ll be the manager of a store called the Red Zone, which sells all things University of Utah. The greatest part is, it’s literally 15 minutes away from where we live. His commute will go from 20 hours a week (yes, it’s equivalent to a part-time job) to FIVE hours a week. I don’t even know what to do with all that extra time with him! I can’t even imagine! He doesn’t start till next month, but we’re so excited!

So that’s what’s going on in these parts. And why I’ve been so sporadic with my blogging. But I had to share this contest with you all and wish everyone luck. At least one other person will be reading my work.

And maybe one day, hundreds will. Right? Right?

Happy Monday!
