New Bundle: The Veggie Patch

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 09/29/2014 - 10:01

Don't miss this super cute collab bundle that Melo and I snuck up last week. Melo makes the cutest illustrations, so I always love to work with her on anything, even vegetables, which I'm notorious for not liking in real life (if they were as cute as Melo makes them, it'd probably be a different story). I can't wait to see all your summer and fall harvest photos with this cute bundle!

My First Mini Album

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 09/25/2014 - 14:00

I believe I've mentioned a couple times my desire to make a mini book in the real world. There were so many things to think about, how mini should I make it, what photos should I use, what other stuff should I use, etc, that it was a bit intimidating to start. I had purchased this super mini binder at Staples, which I was planning to use, so that set the size for me (although the pages I made ended up being too bulky to ultimately use it, so I had to just put them all on a ring).

What I've Learned About Making Bouquets

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 09/16/2014 - 16:32

Lately I've been considering this blog and trying to determine what its purpose is, if it has a purpose, should it have a purpose, etc. Currently I'm leaning towards "obvious observations." Today I'm going to share the wisdom I've picked up this summer about making flower bouquets.

#1. If you have a garden, you can bring those flowers inside.

New Bundle: Bolivia

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 09/15/2014 - 09:42

This week my new bundle is very loosely inspired by Bolivia. Bolivia was the first foreign country I moved to, when I was 12, and I lived there for four years. I have hopes of making a few layouts, but first I need to scan in my old scrapbook.

What's Going On: August and a Bit of Now

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 09/09/2014 - 09:05

The days get away from me, and I'm getting a bit late to be posting about August, but I will not be defeated by the date on the calendar! In an attempt to try and keep the days from getting away from me, I've been trying to get back into the discipline of taking a photo a day. It's really great to be able to look back and see a little review of the month in photos. So many of these moments would easily become forgotten, and it just takes a minute to snap a photo.

Quick Trip to San Francisco

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 09/02/2014 - 11:24

A few weekends ago we made a last minute weekend trip to San Francisco to visit Jordan's brother who was recently stationed there with the Coast Guard. We had a busy few days seeing the sites and visiting furniture stores.

New Bundle: Arabia

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 09/01/2014 - 10:19

This isn't the first time I've done a bundle with a Middle Eastern theme, in fact it seems like it may be my fourth or so. So I knew I needed to come at it from a different direction. The Arabia bundle is very warm and neutral, with lots of gold touches. I've thrown in a little Arabic word art, but I'm also hopeful the golden tones will go nicely with your fall photos to come!
