Turquoise + Lime

This is the color scheme for one of our Christmas trees.  Yes, we have two this year, our main one in the living room and this little cutie in the front window (visible to the neighborhood at night).  It would be hard to part ways with this tree since it's the first tree that Simon and I had together.

New Product: Calling Cards

Hello!  I hope your week is coming along well.  Mine is just lovely thus far!

Today I want to do a quick post about the latest products to my shop, www.LrnMDesign.comCalling cards are great to hand out to people giving all of your contact information in one location.  Simply giving your phone number to someone to lock into their phone (and eventually getting lost amongst the others) is no good.  Check out the three customizable designs below:

Blowin' Up the Spot

I'm back with another installment of "Blowin' Up the Spot" where you try to figure out what the image is that I have posted.


What could this be?




Keep guessing.......



One more try..........


TIME!



It's a beautiful earring from a pair that my mom had from the 70's.  I'm going to start rockin' these earrings once I give them a good once over of polishing.

Adieu!

Fall Boot Time

It's time for some new brown boots.  I mean, it has been about 10 years since I bought a pair of brown.  The last pair that I had...well, I wore them into the ground.  I'm 5' 3.5" (yes, I count my half), so when I put on knee-high or thigh-high boots it kinda shrinks me.  I want a nice ankle to mid-calf height boot.  Here are a few that I enjoy.

Featured!

It's Wednesday evening already!  We're almost at the end of the week and on to a wonderful weekend!  What do you all have planned?  I have a few things up my sleeve, but we'll see how things pan out.


Today I was featured on the blog A Home in the Making (Thanks Jenn)!  I designed a new favicon for her blog, and it flows so well with her design (not to mention that it's awesomely orange)!  Head on over to check her out.  She and her hubby are renovating their bungalow, and they do it so well!

New Series- Blowin' Up the Spot

Yes, that's right, Blowin' Up the Spot.  This series is all about being aware of the things around you because after all, art surrounds us every second of our lives!  I will be taking pictures of things at an extreme close-up in an artistic way then showing what the image actually is.  Shall we begin?



Any clue?

C'mon......


No?

Okay, here it is-

Helvetica Neue

This is my absolute favorite font.  It's so pretty.  It's sexy.  It's thin.  I would compare this font to a top shelf margarita on a hot summer day!  In fact, this is one of the fonts that I use in my logo.  See?



Since this is a thin font, it can be seen as feminine, luxurious and/or modern.  This would be fitting for a woman's brand or product, but with the right colors, imagery and words, this can be masculine as well. 

Here are a few examples of where this font was used.

So, what's your favorite font and why?

Pretty Cool Home Page

Surfing the net (is it lame to say that now?), I came across a site for a design studio called Sagmeister. What struck me was their home page. It's a live webcam shot of their studio. Crazy idea! So whatever time you visit their site, you can see the inside of their studio live (and the cars driving past outside). Check it out here.

Here's a shot as of 12:08 am est.

Color Scheme Envy

I came across a website for the company Glam Media , and immediately fell in love with the colors on their About section. The bold, sophisticated black paired with pops of saturated colors?!?! This would be great for a dining room or a bedroom in my opinion. Graphic Design wise, it's perfect for this kind of company, and I LOVE the sans serif fonts. Here are a few shots that drew me in-

Artsy Fartsy

Yeah, that's me. I'm an artist. I may not wear thick framed black glasses every day {the stylish type}, I may not have an avant-garde hairstyle, I may not wear mismatched clothes and I may not cut my ear off and send it to my lover...but doggonit I'm an artist! Here's proof:



I started this painting on Monday evening and finished Tuesday night. Pretty good for a decisive person in training wouldn't ya say? Now I have to decide if it's going to stay on the mantel or hang above the buffet in the dining room...



*Okay, I realize that was possibly stereotypical of artists, but I meant it in all fun. No harm intended :)

Myers Maison!

Hello! It has been far too long since I have posted, but I plan to improve! One reason is that I have started a new blog because I decided to separate business ventures and graphic design from home ventures and decorating. So...check out the new blog if you're interested in seeing the happenings at the Myers' household decor wise and otherwise!

Back to the Future

The internet is a funny place full of inspiration! I came across something tonight that I thought was uber cute and I may consider trying myself...one day.

Photographer Irina Werning is working on a project called "Back to the Future" in which the subject chooses a picture from their childhood and recreates the scene down to the clothes, accessories and even location of the original picture {if possible}. See what I mean?





If I tackle this, I'll let you all know. Perhaps it could be a piece of wall art in my home...

The Long and {not so} Short of it

Hello good people! Hope all is well. Things around here are starting to pick up...both business wise and interior design wise. Stay tuned for some exciting additions to my shop this spring!

Drapes...it was something that I had been wanting to add to our great room for a year now. last winter was cold, and with nothing but paper shaded to keep the heat in, we were definitely looking to get them up as quick as possible. Fast forward to the following winter, and it's even more cold! Still no drapes! Reason? I'm indecisive...if you didn't know. Well let me rephrase...I'm a decisive person in training. To make a long story short, I decided to make my own drapes because I was having no luck finding the length that I needed for a decent price and a fabric that I liked. Went to the fabric store, and everything happened to be $3.99 a yard that day {score!}. Found a fabric that I liked and purchased it after consulting via text message/picture message with Simon. The fabric sat around for a good month before I cut it into the four panels needed. Another three weeks went by before we actually started putting them together. Thanks to a tutorial from the wonderful couple of Young House Love, we used heavy duty hem tape for the edges since we don't know how to sew {yet}. Okay, okay, enough talking already. Here we go:


The fabric rolled up all nice and tight



Our work area {the great room floor}


Good old trusty iron



Great Room windows before {even before we moved in!}


And after




Another before {in which we were living this time}




The plan is to keep the walls the neutral color that they are and to add color with art work, possibly wall decals, and a nice mirror {more on that mirror later...}. What I really love now is a nice golden glow that greets me every morning when I open my bedroom door to go downstairs!

We decided to stick with neutral colored panels..well...because...who really wants to go through all of that again? We plan to make more curtains for the house, but not that length! It was a wonderful and rewarding experience though, I must admit.

Any DIY projects underway around your way?
