Jake and I had a successful weekend. We slept late on Saturday and spent the afternoon unpacking a few neglected boxes and hanging up some of our art around the house. We had to run a few errands around town so we stopped by Goodwill to see if there was anything good. We found two awesome things! The first was this old yellow chair. As soon as I saw it I knew it was perfect. Of course it was dirty and needed a little love but when we got home we cleaned it up and it now looks much better. I really like the mustard yellow but the fabric is pretty warn so we plan on reupholstering it soon. Jake also found some Star Wars toys to add to the collection he has set up at work. That night we grilled and played some games with friends, then ended the day watching Pixar's new movie Brave. Of course Pixar never dispoints. It was a great movie.
I always see cake pans in all kinds of fun shapes, but I never buy them since space in our kitchen cabinets is like gold: rare and hard to find. Quirky's Ribbon Bake Any Shape Pan solves that problem. Yep, it does exactly what it sounds like it does; it bakes any shape! Right now it is still in the development stages but I can sure see that in my kitchen's future. Move over cookie sheets and cake pans, we have a new kid on the block!
I find it hard to believe, but summer is official here (as of yesterday) and so to celebrate the warmer days ahead I have designed a free printable ice cream social party invitation to share with you.

This is one of those design concepts that is so simple it's brilliant. It's so cool how they incorporate the surrounding textures and colors into the design. Brilliant, just brilliant.
Good morning readers! Today I am over at Yellow Bird Yellow Beard. Janee and her husband are in the process of moving and she asked if I would write a guest post while she is away. Of course I was happy to help out. Head over there to read my post and while you're at it take a look around her wonderful blog!
I've got a creative itch today thanks to Meg from Moglea. Recently she started her own letterpress line of paper goods and boy are they good! Now I'm all inspired to design more items for our shop. I have a bunch of ideas I would like to develop, but until my pile of outside work dwindles down a little I'll just have to swoon over Meg's stuff.
We had such a fun weekend. Saturday I threw a bridal shower for Erika (which my amazing husband helped me all day with). Since we were so busy on Saturday we spent most of our day Sunday relaxing at home and then went out for some frozen yogurt with friends. It made for a great weekend.
Hey everyone, this is Jake. I know I don't get to post on our blog very often, but when I have the time I really do enjoy it. This morning Jamie and I found a video shot from the perspective of a dog at a dog park, and thought we'd share it with you.
Whew! Erika's bridal shower is so close. These next two days before the shower is crunch time. There's a lot still to be done but I'm so excited with how things are turning out. Here's a little sneak peek of what I've been working on.
To celebrate Paramount Pictures 100th anniversary DKNG Studios designed a limited edition screen printed posters made up of 100 icons of their classic films. It's only available to Paramount employes. How many films can you pick out?
Check out this hand-drawn font from My Fonts! It was inspired by vintage apothecary labels and comes with tons of styles and frames. Right now it's on sale for only $20. Now that's a deal. I was excited about it so I thought I would share it with you.
Something really exciting and unexpected happened over the weekend. Out of the blue I decided I was going to do a simple internet search for dalmatian puppies near Los Angles. We have been looking for a while now for litters close to us and the only breeder we found isn't having puppies until late this year. We were just planing on waiting for that litter. That is until I came across another breeder who is only an hour and a half away that just had puppies that were born 3 weeks ago! We got in contact with her over the weekend and have scheduled to go pick out our puppy in two weeks! We couldn't be more excited. On Saturday we even did a little puppy supply shopping to prepare for our little one.
