A beautiful insiders look at creative studios by: Jeana Sohn . This inspires me to get back to my roots of hand made jewelry and clothing and take a break from graphics and the computer.¬† There is a great line that my friend Courtney pointed out from the movie “Art and Copy,” it went something like this…the scariest thing about creative work is that you have no idea where and when you’ll get your ideas. I guess keeping your hands in different art forms is a good way to broaden your source of inspiration. The artists shown above are 1. Wiksten 2. Erin Considine 3. Shabd

Again, Scout and Catalog is killin’ it with their photography and styling.

Love these patterns by graphic designer and illustrator Jan Avendano. Found on All the Mountains.

Stone & Honey

Some tid bits of treasure from my trip to Puerto Rico…

1. Da House in Old Town San Juan is an artsy, funky little hotel located in the heart of all the action.

2. Old Town San Juan is rich with character…narrow cobble stone streets, bright Spanish-colonial architecture and quaint little coffee shops and restaurants.

3. (Food) Majorcas, a swiss cheese sandwich covered in powered sugar, a new addiction. We were over served the most colorful and delicious sangria ever.

4. The Island of Culebra is a rustic and wild island where there is plenty of room to roam and feel removed from everything.

5. Flamenco beach was named one of the 10 ten beaches in the world. I believe it.

6. The door to our magical tree house in the rainforest.

7. El Yunque rainforest, were we lost our breath taking a dip under a waterfall.

8. One of the few houses on Culebra “the peach house”, there are no addresses here.

Nice lifestyle photography from Ailin.

I helped out my friend Anna Marie with her website and branding for her jewelry business Spence and Spry. She just sent me one of her sweet textural thread necklaces along with the biz cards I designed for her. I’m happy with the way the cards turned out.
