October highlights.

october on dotted design Happy Halloween! What a month it has been. I must say, it really throws you off when your month starts off with a travel. Though it can be overwhelming to come back to your clients that have a flurry of projects to work on, I always find it kind of exhilarating to get back into the routine. Here are just a few of the month’s highlights:

  1. B and I had a fantastic trip to Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. Though I ate many more meat & potato meals than I normally would choose to, it was so wonderful to see such beautiful buildings and history. Prediction: Budapest will be the next big travel destination. It was magical.
  2. My lady Hilary launched a new membership site I designed for the students in her Style & Styleability course, and we created a beautiful new journal for the class. {It’s hard not to have fun when working on such stylish projects.}
  3. I started work on a new project that involves lots of typography fun and a bit of handlettering {outtakes above!} that I can’t wait to share more about. Hint: it’s very girly.
  4. I got a start on my holiday projects – yes, this means new items are coming to the shop in November! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, right?

Rapid fire round! This month’s favorite… Font: Acustica Snack: Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter. On anything. TV show: Gilmore Girls on Netflix. It’s like I’m 15 again. Book: Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. A fast, intriguing read!

What was the best part about your month? And, I’d love to hear what you’re looking forward to in these last two months of the year!
