Can you believe the holidays are over? We’re kicking off 2018 with the sweetest fruity shoes you’ve ever seen! To make sure we start things off on the right foot, our January 2018 Desktop Calendar is a reminder to take those first steps into the new year with style. January is the month of resolutions, goals, to-do lists, and fresh starts. This can be exciting for some and overwhelming for most. Resolution anxiety anyone? So lets just put on some cute shoes, and take this month one step at a time! We got this!
We’re thrilled to announce our last Illustrator feature of 2017 is the lovely Marisol Ortega! Her color palettes, playful designs, and quirky style immediately caught my attention and I love everything she does! Take some time to scroll through her Instagram feed and you’ll come away feeling inspired immediately. Marisol commonly draws flora and fauna which happen to be some of my most favorite subject matter. Not only is she an illustrator but a designer, pattern maker, and letterer. Marisol currently resides in the mid-west with her husband, daughter, and kitten, Louie! We hope you enjoy taking a behind the scenes look at her artistic process! I’m swooning over her fruit drawings!Continue for the full interview with Marisol Ortega!
My co-workers recently surprised me with a gift, a childhood Promptly Journal for my upcoming baby. They know me so well. I’ve been an active documenter since I was young, which probably explains how I grew into being a full-time blogger. I have scores of journals at my parent’s house detailing the (I’m sure boring) details of my life growing up. It was a time without Internet and social media so everything was written by hand and looking back, it was quite therapeutic and a great way to capture my thoughts and close out the day. Not a single day would go by without writing at least “too tired to write tonight. more tomorrow”. At least it kept me consistent!
Though I’ve been out of the loop of actively handwriting my thoughts in a journal for quite some time now, no doubt thanks to this here blog, I’ve recently taken it up again now that I’ve got a major life change ahead with the new baby next month and all the adorable baby books are too cute to pass up. With the journal from my ladies, I’ve also come across a few other baby books and journals for baby/mommy that I’m also stoked about and I thought you might also be interested in some beautiful and practical ways to document your little one. Take a look at them below! Read on →
Dum, da da dum! Oh, you guys, I’m so thrilled to reveal the new flooring in our house. It’s been a long time in coming and there’s so much to say about it. We partnered with Pergo flooring to make it happen and I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out. Here’s how the story goes. Read on →
One of my favorite things about the new year is the need to buy a new calendar! I like to have a wall calendar above my desk at home and a desk calendar for work. Not only does this help me keep track of the day today, but it is also a perfect way to add a little pop of art into your life. All the more reason to make sure you buy a lovely calendar! We’ve scavenged the internet to find a handful of beautiful calendars to kick off 2018, all Lars approved. It’s the perfect thing to start the new year off on the right foot. Did we mention they make great gifts? Everyone needs a calendar!
