It’s always exciting when you come across a new blogger that just gets it. I have become a huge fan of the blog, Thou Swell, written by Kevin O’Gara (an Atlanta-based design student). Oh, I Design alongside some awesome bloggers (listed below) are getting together to celebrate his one year anniversary by giving away One Apple iPad Mini (16GB, Wifi) and one three-month subscription to NextIssue, which will give the winner access to over 135 top magazines on their new iPad!
When: The contest will run until Tuesday November 11th.
*open to international readers!
Good morning friends! I am back from Oklahoma and although I was able to get a little work done while I was away, I am returning to a lot of emails and many exciting projects. I will be glued to this computer for the next few days that’s for sure. And if you are reading this and I owe you an email, you will receive one soon! ;)
Just to recap the week: Oklahoma is always a refreshing break for me – I had the pleasure of visiting friends/family and attending my alma mater’s homecoming game (the best homecoming in the nation might I add). No, I am not kidding…just click here. The decks are made from chicken wire, and small tissue paper called pomps and glue. Lots of glue. Also, tailgating is no joke….it’s the best!
I will say, every time I return to Oklahoma, I am reminded at how simple and laid back life is there. People often fight over who will open the door for the next person (“no you go ahead, i’ve got it…”no you go”). There are few cities that compare to Oklahoma when it comes to good manners and kindness. I definitely miss that way of life but it also reminds me of how much I enjoy the chaos and excitement of a big city. I truly don’t believe I would be as inspired and motivated without living in Boston (or San Diego) and it feels good to be back!
Anyway, it’s early and I’ve got a lot to catch up on (including this blog). Happy Thursday friends!
I am so excited for this post because today marks one year as a married woman to my wonderful husband, Cody. Today, I wanted to show more photos from our wedding day – it’s so fun to look through them and kind of relive the day. (thank you to the wonderful Limelife Photography team for taking these photos so we can remember all of the details forever).
Cody – it has been an amazing one year being married to you and 5 years (almost 6) of being together! Life is fun and always an adventure with you and I am so happy Stillwater, Oklahoma brought us together. :) Here’s to many years and memories to come!
Cody and I are in Oklahoma for a long weekend of visiting our families and friends as well as celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary (tomorrow) at our alma mater’s homecoming game! Oklahoma State University is where we met so it means a lot to be able to celebrate surrounded by the people we love!
I quickly wanted to share that I am featured on one of my favorite bloggers, Lee of Style Bee’s blog on a blog tour! Check it out :)
Recently I was introduced to Picture it on Canvas, a custom printing service that hand prints your photos onto canvas, slate, metal, tote bags, to name a few. PIOC was kind enough to send me an 8×10 canvas and because Cody and I are just a few days away from hitting our one year anniversary (CRAZYYYY!), I decided to choose a photo from our wedding day by Limelife Photography.
One thing I love about PIOC is you can also log on to your instagram account and select photos from your feed to get printed! Another thing I love is how quickly the canvas shipped to me. With project deadlines, it’s so good to know I can place an order and the product will arrive in a timely manner. Always, always a bonus. ;)
How awesome would it be to create a gallery wall with your favorite instagram photos?? What a dream.
Oh and by the way – if you sign up for Picture it On Canvas’ newsletter and you will receive coupon codes and special offers!
