It's Sunday! In a few days we are headed to the hubby's parents' house to celebrate Christmas and then it's off to mine to celebrate. I'm wrapping gifts today while I can since Chris is off at the Patriots game. Such unusually warm weather here! Everyone's joking that we could be at the beach...in December! So much for sledding! I know that we'll get plenty of our fill of snow soon so I'm not worried about it. Been looking at all the greatness on flickr and found this lovely! It instantly makes me smile every time I look at it! This week at the studio brings some packaging design, website edits, and some fun card design! My new logo design in on my etsy shop header...it's designed to look like an official seal. I designed one for my Presslings card line and one for my design studio. Hopefully my newly designed website will be launched this spring! And one last link for fun, I love the designs at eiei-o studio...their paper is so gorgeous! And their website design is clean, simple, and easy to navigate. I notice they change up the motif on the homepage to keep things fresh. Lovely patterns on their wrapping paper keep me coming back for more! Happy Holidays to all if I don't catch you before then!

There's something about the holiday time when I feel so happy with family and friends. But I also feel so disconnected during this time as well. I think it's because there's just so darn much going on! I've been working very hard here at the studio and away with clients. Busy busy! I have big plans to begin production on my Presslings by Megan creates... LETTERPRESSED card and paper gifts line in January. I have several ideas that I just have to execute and print. My goal is to have at least one item produced in January; hopefully it will happen! Since it's a side project it can be hard to find a lot of chunks of time needed to focus on it. I'm so excited to get started though! For spring, I also have planned to redesign my website and get it more "branded" to the new direction my design studio is taking. 2007 will be a big year for the studio and I'm so excited to get things going. I've been so excited by all the inspiration and sharing out in blog world. A favorite shop I've discovered through a friend is Design Public. It's got the coolest items for the home...for yourself or as gifts! It's really fun to look at all the neat little items. Check it out!
