Jas and I are spending a few days relaxing in the Smoky Mountains and I've been enamored with the beauty of the falling leaves (growing up in Florida my whole life I've only visited places with distinct seasons, but even then, never in October when the leaves are quite literally falling all around you.) On our hike today I caught this leaf and thought to myself it's kind of sad the idea of leaves falling off their trees - it's sort of the end of an era for them. But then I thought about what it signifies: a transition, a change (and a beautiful one at that.) In life when we're going through big changes, it's easy to focus on what's being lost or slipping away. But there's so much beauty to be experienced in change. Embrace it. (Ps. I forgot to bring my notebook on our trip, so I improvised. I wasn't lying in the #BetterLetteringCourse when I said all you need is something to write with and something to write ON!) #lettering #handlettering #fall #fallleaves #inspiration

More new work to share! I was so excited to work with my absolute favorite restaurant in Jax, @tacolujaxbeach, on a brand refresh and new website. New menus will be rolling out in the next few weeks, and I'll be sharing some of the new brand elements on the blog soon! Check out the site if you get a chance and witness the glory of the most comprehensive tequila list I've ever seen! (Plus some delicious Instagram photos of tacos!) #design #webdesign #branding

ckelso : @lilsocki05 the video lessons are hosted through YouTube so it should have closed captioning but I'll double check for you! And the majority of the lessons have slides that accompany the audio so you can take full advantage of those too.
ckelso : @imperfectconcepts such a fun idea for a gift! Thanks for signing @cjwdesigncompany up! You guys are awesome!
imperfectconcepts : It's truly my pleasure! So excited for the creative flow
imperfectconcepts : @cjwdesigncompany ^^
lilsocki05 : @ckelso okay sweet. Thank you so much and please let me know if there's any CC on YouTube video.
madammanners : I just purchased this course!!!! I am uber excited!
randomolive : Just bought this today and watched a bunch of the videos! Thanks for the encouragement!

Been on a major Elizabeth Gilbert kick lately (as you know if you're on my newsletter/have read the latest post on the blog) and at the very end of her #supersoulsunday episode, Oprah asks if she has a spiritual practice to which she responds that she just tries to bring the light every day in whatever way she can. After an awesome client meeting this morning, driving with the windows down in this gorgeous semi-fall weather today, having a delightfully long sushi lunch with my faves don and debbie from @tacolujaxbeach, I felt like I was definitely feeling the light today - hence the little #brightbomb for your feed. Are you bringing the light today? #handlettering #handletteredtype #bringthelight

Been so absorbed in digital work lately that I haven't made enough time to doodle! When I started #madevibrant back in January, the working tagline I used was "For those that live on the bright side," referencing not just positive people but those that strive to be their brightest, best selves. Thought maybe I'd bring that back by sharing the occasional hand-lettered affirmation here under the tag #brightbomb! So... If you want to join in, share a quote or a doodle to offer a little burst of brightness to your followers and we'll all shine a little brighter together! ;) #inktober #doodle #handlettering #prismacolormarkers

Here's a peek at a #logodesign for another project I'm working on with @jasondoesstuff. There's something so fun about creating #branding for a company that is in its infancy. So many fun things to consider and imagine: who your users are, what you stand for, what type of brand personality you want to project. Can't wait to share more! #startup #logo #graphicdesign

Y'all, this might make me appear crazy but... I’m selling my WHOLE wardrobe. Jason and I are making some changes to move toward a more minimal lifestyle (oh hey @joshuafieldsmillburn and @ryannicodemus ) and through that process we are shedding a good deal of our things. In this case, I’m getting rid of about 90% of my wardrobe through both donation and resale to move to the concept of a “capsule wardrobe,” which I”ll be trying out this fall. (Google it!) All that said, I was planning to resell all 65 of my items individually for $15 a pop (including things like never-worn cocktail dresses and a two-piece suit) BUT frankly I don’t have a ton of extra time these days and so before I invest the time in all that madness, I decided to throw one bang-for-your-buck pricetag on the whopping lot of it. 65 items for…. $500 (or best offer) which includes shipping anywhere in the US. For any non-math-whizzes out there, that’s less than $8 an item! (I’m no shopping expert, but $8 for an unworn cocktail dress is a pretty great deal…) Wear the whole wardrobe, or pick what you like and sell the rest or sell the whole dang thing piece by piece on craigslist/Threadflip and make double your money! As for sizing, in general, I’m 5’ 6”, a size 6/8 dress (most in this lot are a size 6) and either a small or medium in tops/sweaters. Brands include: Urban Outfitters, jcrew, Banana Republic, LOFT, Target, Express, Old Navy, anthropologie, Francesca’s Closet, Forever 21, and H&M. Includes: 22 Dresses 10 skirts 2 Coverups 2 blazers 12 sweaters 14 tops 1 fitted pin-stripe suit (1 blazer and 1 pant) 1 pair black jeans Condition varies from new, to gently worn (once or twice) to good condition. Every piece I would consider ready to wear. If you’re ready to buy and want to make sure you don’t miss out on the goods, you can purchase immediately by visiting my blog (link in profile) with a buy link on the latest post. If you’d like to submit an offer, shoot me an email at If you know someone who might be interested, please tag them in the comments! I'm a "motivated seller!" ;) Here's to new beginnings!
emersonandlady : I smell a #capsulewardrobe!
