Dylan George Elizabeth Bootcut

Love these jeans from the William Rast crew. Such a 'sexy back'. You can find them at Lisa Kline.

New Business Cards

Finally put my order in for my new business cards! I did a quick, simple design for this one, as I need them in a hurry! Here is the design, minus the phone number. Oh, and they will have rounded corners!

Sleek Cycle

I just saw an ad for this bike by electrabike in Women's Health magazine at the gym yesterday and completely fell in love with it's modern & sleek styling. I am such a sucker for anything in white (except or silver only for me where vehicles are concerned)!

New Photoshoot: Misty

I had such a blast with Misty today for her photo session. We did some indoors boudoir type shots as well as some outdoor shots with a sports car! Fun, fun, fun! Here are two of the ‘tamer’ images from the day.

Recent Themed Logo Design

Here’s a pic of the recent logo I themed for Fiji Water in action, at their event. Looks pretty cool with the masks, doesn’t it?

Books, books, & more books

Will I ever say enough is enough with buying books already?! Sheesh! In the meantime, here are 2 on my radar:
Beyond Trend, How to Innovate in an Over-Designed World by Matt Mattus and In-House Design In Practice by Cathy Fishel

Scoop Back Desk Chair

I'm super fond of these contour back desk chairs by West Elm! I'm torn between white and cinnabar!

Taryn by Taryn Rose

My good friend Lauren is always keeping me abreast of all the cool things going on at the company she works for, Taryn Rose. She knows I am a fan of the shoe line! Well, she wrote me yesterday to tell me about their NEW shoe line, which I must say I have fallen in love with! Here's what Lauren had to say:

Hi Stacie,

I just wanted to let you know about all the cool stuff happening here at Taryn Rose. We now have the Taryn by Taryn Rose line which is fabulously hip and great for a woman who wants comfort and style. Here are some of the new fall line! Check it out at

Lauren also sent me the gorgeous images above! I want BOTH pairs of shoes now!

Big City Loft Style

I think I will always love loft style decor such as these from my fav, CB2. Love the graphic nature of the prints as well as the tough, graffiti style pillow with soft sentiments. Check out the room views and other coordinating items here.

Freelance: Website

I recently completed work for my client, Perfect Princess Parties, and am excited to announce that I am now now moving forward on her website. Here's an example of some of the projects I did for this fun company...a flyer and business card (I also did a really cute brochure which is not pictured above).

Freelance: Photoshoot

Had a freelance assignment yesterday...shooting headshots for local actor/musician, Brian Kell. He was such a joy to work with!
While I'm processing the images, I thought I'd share a few with you.

Friday, August 8, 2008


Well, For the second time within a years span, I find myself with the daunting task of finding new employment, as I was laid off from my job yesterday along with other dear friends. Scary as that is, the most frightening part is wondering how in the world I am going to stay afloat in the meantime. I was barely squeaking by as it was, with a steady income! Looking around at the lack of jobs in my field at the moment also gives me heart palpitations. Will I have to forget about my skills and just become a waitress to pay the bills?

I find solace in knowing that I have people in my life who love me...that's what matters most in life anyway, right? And I find hope in believing that everything happens for a reason and that when bad things happen, something better is usually waiting just around the corner!

So, here's to new beginnings!
