This marks my 200th post! To celebrate, I decided that my blog was in much need of a new design. I was feeling a bit shabby with all of the new, made-up faces on your beautiful blogs. The design at top is from a logo I did for a cafe in Seattle that won’t be used — at least not in similar form. Ryan taught me how to use Freehand and wow do I love that tool! It’s like tracing paper, only much better. I redid my shoe; the last one was a little too cartoon-y. There might be a few tweaks in coming weeks, like figuring how to make a serif font a larger size so I don’t kill your poor eyes.
And, there’s a little prezie on the table for a friend who shares the same birthday as me, which is tomorrow! The beautiful flower arrangement is from a dear friend who was so kind and had them delivered to my office yesterday — a treat I’ve never received before. Ryan is taking me out for a day of surprises tomorrow, which is sure to be a blast, and on Saturday Aja and I are going to the beach for a sunny-day picnic. Yay for birthdays!
