Beyond Flattered

While doing a little maintenance on my own site the other day I noticed some incoming traffic from one of my favorite blogs. Things have been busy around here and I haven’t kept up on my blog reading. Truth be told I’m upwards of 1,500 posts behind on my feedly reading. Do you use feedly?? Definitely a topic for another blog post. Soon.  Feedly, Bloglovin’…both great tools for keeping up on your blog reading (unless you’re me).

Anywho, Heather from somehow stumbled on my blog and featured it in her May 5th Weekend Links post. (I know, it’s July and I’m just now discovering this!) I’m totally flattered. I LOVE her weekend link lists. Have discovered so many great bloggers through it…many added to that growing feedly list. :) She’s incredibly inspiring. Her own blog design is perfection. I first stumbled on her through instagram. From there I stumbled on her blog and fell in love. She recently updated the whole look but the old one was equally amazing.

Check out her blog here. You’ll love it! And if you’re on instagram you’ll want to follow her here: justlove_ly

Thanks Heather for the shout out. Truly beyond flattered. :)


Chalk Art Inspiration

I’ve been so in love with all the chalkboard art you see lately. Around town, on the web. It’s everywhere and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it. I love that it’s inspiring new font styles and design graphics for use in recreating the look digitally. Still nothing compares with the artistry of people like Dana Tanamachi who create these beautiful chalk drawings the old-fashioned way. So glad there are people out there bringing back this lost art. The following are some examples of her work. The first at Evernote (one of my favorite companies which deserves a post all it’s own).
