2014 highlights.

thanks2014 As the year comes to a close, the huge crop of end-of-year recap posts start to emerge. While I don't want to get too nostalgic or focus too much on what has passed, I do think it's great to look back on all you accomplish in a year. Instead of a December recap, I want to reflect on some of the fantastic things that have happened this year as well as highlight some of my favorite posts.

Here are just a few of this year's highlights:

  1. I had a blast doing a new series, a Handlettered Holiday Happy Hour (say that three times fast!). See them all here.
  2. B and I had an awesome trip to Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. Traveling is so good for the soul. {Photo above is of Prague}
  3. I really honed in on my design process, with my favorite step likely being the moodboard. This one was my favorite!
  4. I designed some really fun brands and websites for some wonderful people, including Media Bombshell and Lauren Wald. Lady power!
  5. One of my favorite blog series to compile has been Style It / Send It - gives me an excuse to look for stationery and shoes at the same time.
  6. I added some fun cards to my Etsy shop, and will be adding some new projects soon!

Back to December now: this month’s favorite… Font: Feast from Great Lakes Lettering Snack: All the Christmas cookies. TV show: Peaky Blinders on Netflix. Book: The Magicians by Lev Grossman

What was the best part about your year? While I'm not one for big New Year goal setting or resolution keeping (I think it's something one should do year round!), I can't wait to share more with you as we head into 2015. Thanks for reading this year, and may great design fill your new year!
