book signing

Last night I got a chance to meet Gabrielle Blair (Design Mom) at her book signing in Boston. I've never had a book signed before and I wasn't really clear on the point of it but I'm so very glad that I went. 



I enjoyed hearing Gabby and Christine Koh (Boston Mamas) do a Q&A - we got to hear a few behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the book writing process. And when it came time for the signing I was thrilled to have a chance to talk to Gabby.


She is just as delightfully warm in person as she is online. It was a great experience! (Special thanks to Laura L who insisted on taking a photo!)

If you don't already have it, you should buy her book!

framing

I was so inspired by Design Mom recently. I took photographs of some of my artwork and got two pieces beautifully framed at Framebridge.


They turned out so perfectly, I am kicking myself that it took me this long! Do you have things lying around that you would like to frame? Do it! They will help you mail in original artwork or work with photographs to get a beautiful, professional, finished look.

And a hand-written thank you note. Amazing!

This guy. Come on! If you have 15 minutes and you want a peek into logo design, watch this video.



In his interview with lynda.com designer Aaron Draplin describes his process for exploring a new logo design. He's insightful and inspirational.

Enjoy!

cookie cutters

You. Guys. There's a shop on Etsy that sells cookie cutters. Amazing cookie cutters. Letters in different fonts!

Buy them for the type-lovers in your life. (cough cough, hint hint)





Aren't they amazing? I'm sure you love them as much as I do.

jack-o-lanterns

Happy Halloween!


I'm sure I'm not alone in celebrating that this pumpkin-carving chore comes only once a year. It's fun but I'm happy to be done until next time!
