Day 20: A Dash of Fun Fonts

Today I have been working on some crafty additions for my Christmas presents (those will have to be kept secret) and I decided I needed some new fonts. Here are a few I downloaded from here.  The best part was that they were all free! Only 6 more days until the big day or as Patrick would like to say only 2 more days until the big day (his birthday!)

Wall of Art

This weekend we just found out we are able to stay in our place for another year..Great News. A couple months ago I stop buying stuff for the place because I was not sure how long we were going to be able to stay.  Well… we have a big blank wall on the dining room that needs some love.  I am thinking about making an art collage wall.  I can’t wait to fill the blank “canvas”.

A Little Painting

So this past weekend I decided to take up a new hobby, painting.  I have always loved drawing and photography but I have never been the greatest painter.  I got the idea for the painting a while back..do you remember this post about Coco & Hearts artist’s home, Jen.  Well my inspiration came from her Lipstick Dot paintings. The best part of the project is that it only cost a total of $25 dollars! I may not be a professional but I think it turned out pretty well (sorry for the bad quality photos, they came from my iphone.)

Rock Chalk

Since this weekend is the Big Twelve Tournament in Kansas City, I thought it was appropriate to show some school pride.  Sav-Art is a local artist from Kansas City, who I just adore. I think he may love Lawrence as much as I do. The Wheel, Allen Fieldhouse, and the Delta Gamma house just bring me back to a great place!

Wake Up And Smell the Daisies

   

 

Happy Day back to work! I am just in love with my new Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume I got for Christmas.  Maybe because of how cute the bottle is or the sweet smell.  Either way I want to collect all four! Possible Valentine’s Day idea anyone??

Illustrator Extraordinaire

 

 

 

 

Jenny Bowers, Illustrator Extraordinaire! I love her use of bright colors that allow her illustrations to just pop off the page. And especially the elegant and girly subject matter. She is the one behind the new Kate Spade stationary and 2011 planner.  These illustrations would look great in my new office!
