Happy summer!!! We welcomed the season with triple digit temperatures yesterday. My husband suffered a near death experience when he snuck the thermostat up to 79°F when I wasn't looking. It's not incredibly wise to mess with a pregnant lady's thermostat. 🔪👿🔥

Btw, I'm super pregnant. Due next month with a little baby girl.

It's been a double d sort of week. Everyone knows that's short for digital design right? #notabreastreference #orisit

The other day...I cleaned my kitchen, I put on real pants AND makeup. Then I went to the Dr office with both my kids and the sweet nurse told me (unprovoked) "You're such a great mom". Armed with such praise plus the confidence of wearing not sweatpants in public I decided ​that I could totally conquer Costco with both my boys in tow. And you know what? I totally did! I didn't even lose my cool when the 6 year old cried actual tears and prostrated himself on the floor over the color of the cheese packaging. Motherhood skillz on point! We got home, I put away all the groceries, and deboned the shiz outta that rotisserie chicken. Then I made dinner, and even decided to make homemade chicken stock with the chicken bones, as one does when one has mastered the domestic arts. I was basically Martha Stewart, minus the street cred of having served hard time. I was on fire! But turns out, in that exact moment, I wasn't the only thing on fire...so was my kitchen. More specifically a pot I forgot I was heating some oil in. It was super on fire. Set off every fire alarm in the house. Everyone is safe and the kitchen was spared any real damage, and I was sufficiently humbled. And that's the story of how my blossoming domestic prowess went down in a literal blaze of glory🔥

It's teacher appreciation week, so I spent like 2 hours last night making these crepe paper flowers for my son's kindergarten teacher in her favorite colors. Meanwhile the state of my house is, ummm, post-apocalyptic. But you know #proirities right? No? Okay.

Working up some samples on this fine first day of May. It's the best month that the year has to offer!

I would reward myself for finally completing taxes, but thanks to taxes I'm too poor for rewards.

Copper foil return address on soft blue envelopes 😍. I realize now that everything else I've done with my life was a complete waste of time.

Taking a photo of gold ink is a lot like trying to catch a feral cat, except with more swearing.

Spring dreaming🌷

It's such a pretty Monday

You know what today is? It's the last day of the worst month ever invented. I'm still here. That means I WIN!!! #suckitjanuary
