giftsForArtists

SIX gifts for the CREATIVES in your life under $30! Ok MOST of these are under $30, one is actually $32.95 :)

ONE // $16.99 // Nate Berkus gold shears, I’ve had my eye on these for a while. They’re solid and everything Nate Berkus touches seems to turn to gold anyways. Love his style AND Target does it again with this one.

TWO // $32. 95 (so close) // Moleskin Smart Notebook, this is amazing. Coming out December, “The Moleskine Smart Notebook and companion App, Creative Cloud connected, instantly turn your hand-drawn sketches into fully workable vector files accessible within the Adobe Creative Cloud.” One word: YES

THREE // $15.00 // Thin/fine tipped sharpies, you can never have enough. This pack has 80’s glam colors.

FOUR // $12 // Bon Appetit Subscription, This magazine wins #1 design in my book (it has also won legitimate design awards). The content is great, but to me the design is even better. It’s the gift that keeps giving every month.

FIVE // $18 // Daily Rituals: How Artists Work, Grant got me this book for our Anniversary after I had stalked it at all our local libraries. It had a 3 month waiting list! So good >> ” Over 150 inspired—and inspiring—minds, among them, novelists, poets, playwrights, painters, philosophers, scientists, and mathematicians, who describe how they subtly maneuver the many (self-inflicted) obstacles and (self-imposed) daily rituals to get done the work they love to do, whether by waking early or staying up late; whether by self-medicating with doughnuts or bathing, drinking vast quantities of coffee, or taking long daily walks.

SIX //  $29 // Vintage Antique Type/Lettering, beautiful letterpress wood printer’s type for collage, stamping, decor, great gift for all typography lovers and perfect stocking stuffers. I think they look neat propped in a bookshelf–a cool XO right here.

Love everything about this cozy holiday season! No snow on the ground right now, but I’m sure it’s coming. THIS cottage makes me hope for a white Christmas! xo

Marble

phoneCase

Last summer I got a new phone case and I’m loving the simple, bold, design. I used the same marble image from this mood board earlier in the summer. I’ve made all my phone cases through Case Mate. They’re not any more expensive than a phone case you’d buy in a store and you get to design the case just how you want it! All you have to do is upload an image. I’d definitely recommend it! Xo

Anniversary Poster // Take me back to Rome!

IMG_8252

Can’t believe it’s been over a month since I’ve last posted! Fall has seemed so full and busy and it’s crazy that winter is around the corner (basically here already), Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and we’ve already bought a Christmas tree!! :) Grant and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary (!!!!!!) a few weekends ago. We spent a few days in Chicago and had a blast visiting museums and eating amazing food (more to come!). This is a poster I put together to celebrate the different places we’ve been to since we’ve been married. It started out as a card, but seemed much more fitting for a poster. It’s fun to look back and remember–5 years goes by so quickly. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! I’ll be making gluten free: apple pie, pumpkin pie and stuffing. Yummmmyy!
