Summer Totes

Memorial weekend is always the for sure kick off that summer vacation is here.  The kiddos only have 4 days left of school.  Can we say that excitement is running wild around here with them.

Living in Wisconsin we don't have the typical beaches as our beloved coastal friends have but, we sure have plentiful amounts of beautiful lakes.   We also spend many days at our community pool.  Even with tad older kids I'm always finding myself lugging around a ton of things for when we do visit the pool and lakes.  There are may affordable beach totes all over the place.  Practical and adorable!

I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable Memorial weekend!

Fonts that Rock

I'm so thankful for sites like the Lost Type.  I seriously got all giddy when I first came across their blog/site.  I'm so in love.  As a designer you know how important type is.  I'm a simple kind of gal when it comes to fonts.  Less is more.  The way you pair fonts together is key to a great design.  If you need any inspiration the Lost Type has plenty here.  The style is retro vintage.  Just lovely!

Here are a few of my favs.  You wanna know the best part?  You can actually download them for free!

I just designed this print using the font Oil Can from Lost Type for my son's bedroom.  I'm still debating on what size to make it.  Once I have it up in it's place I'll share what it looks like.
