well folks, i know i'm a bad blogger. i just can't get motivated to write. maybe it is because i am busy. maybe it is because i find many other things to fill up my time. maybe it is because i don't blog at my new job?
ok. big announcement: the quilt is DONE. geoffrey's grandmother and i finished it back in december. i've been really secretive with this quilt (remember this post? quilting underground). i had a reason for that: i wanted to give it to my good friends Adrienne and Scott for their wedding! the goal back then (two years ago) was to give it to them at their wedding on June 27, 2009. ha! quilting is hard work! just when they thought they were never getting a wedding present, i showed up with a surprise just after christmas!
it was so fun to work on this with geoffrey's grandmother. i will always cherish the memories of working on this with her--quilting is a great way to get to know someone.
Oh yeah, the other thing I'm DONE with: DEBT!! DONE DONE DONE. WE'RE DEBT FREE!! AND Geoffrey and I were on the Dave Ramsey Show last week to tell him about it. i will post the recording in a later blog. it was pretty sweet. now that we are DONE with debt and i am done with the quilt: it's time to save up and buy a house. yessss.
hey blog world. it's been a busy three months. can you believe that i've been working at mobberly for that long already? time flies when you are having fun.
Part 1: merge
i've been working on a logo and other promo materials for a new strategy at Mobberly called MERGE: Combining the influence of church and home. It's about parents taking a huge part in helping their children to grow spiritually. it's about conversations at the dinner table that point to Jesus. It's about praying together. It's about reading scripture together. It's exciting and from what I have heard from most parents...it's challenging. The process of creating this logo was fun. I haven't had the opportunity since college to really sit with someone else and go through a design process to get a product that I am really happy with. Thank you, Liz Gregory for being on staff at Mobberly. It is awesome to work with another designer, ahem, girls minister.
Part 2: Signage
One thing that my good friend Kimberly and I share a love for are cool signs. Something about those signs really gets me excited. Kimberly is really good about taking pictures of them and making them look even better. Spend a few minutes on her blog.
apparently, marfa is the place to go if you like to take photos. i took a ton of them, but my friend linsey found some others who traveled to this little art oasis right around the same time we were there.
