a working girl wednesday

This whole working for myself thing from any place I'd like is pretty sweet sometimes.

Sometimes it's also the scariest, hardest thing I've ever done (right after parenting).

These days my work docket is filling up, all with good things I assure you. Like weddings, new businesses, books, blog redesigns and prints. Sometimes I have to pinch myself when I realize, I get to do *this* for my work? Really? There's nothing better than waking up in the morning knowing that I don't completely hate my job, or dread it even. I've been there before and I think that makes me more grateful for this season of life.

In an effort to have my blog be more connected with my work, work with my blog, words with my pen, pictures with my heart, I'll be blogging about design and stuff on Wednesdays...

so... with that said:

Here's a sampling of what is on my desk these days...(p.s. Isn't calligraphy just the best these days? I'm so glad it's made such a comeback!)

Lately, the fall has been popping up in conversations and even designs. I'm looking forward to blogging about all these designs in the weeks and months to come! :)

Also, a dear friend is a science teacher and she inspired me to make some science-themed art prints. I hope to have these up for sale in the shop by the fall!

Some inspiration I've been gleaning from lately..

:: these kind of Adirondack images

:: this really fun website (and an amazing new font resource)!

Back to work for me. Have a great work week!

(p.s. if you're looking to redesign your blog, I have open spots for the early fall! E-mail me today! andrea (at)

  2. haha, you'd probably get annoyed with my disorganization :)

  3. Yay! Wanna make a DNA one too?! :)

  4. I agree with Jacqs - I find your work inspiring. -Josh
