After almost six years of blogging, I’ve come to realize that this blog has become so much more than just my job. There’s an even more important reason.
I don’t keep a journal, but in many ways this blog has become a sort of journal of my life.
Not only do I share all the projects I make, or the changes we’ve completed on our home, but I also share personal details about my family life.
These days I rarely have time to work on scrapbooks, so my blog has become an online scrapbook of my life.
I love that with a click of a button, I can revisit it all and enjoy the memories.
So, today I’m sharing some moments that are entering the pages of my online scrapbook, and sharing some projects made by my readers using my stencils and tutorials.
My husband and I celebrated our 28th anniversary on Saturday.
We went back to Arkansas to visit my son and his fiancée, even though we’d just been there last weekend when I took their engagement photos, because my son had a special event going on that I didn’t want to miss.
He’s majoring in graphic design, and all the senior graphic design, interior design, and marketing students worked together to put on a branding show as one of their main senior projects.
It isn’t often I get a chance to view his work, so my husband and I were happy to spend our anniversary weekend seeing what he’s learned the last four years.
They worked as a team and were given the assignment of creating a hotel in one room. His team worked on the bedroom and restaurant part of the hotel.
My son designed the logo for the hotel. They used scrap wood to make a rustic backdrop for the sign.
He also designed a carrier for food and drink that could be ordered and delivered by room service.
I wish I could stay at his fictitious hotel, because all guests receive a gift package on their bed filled with a candle, a pair of socks, the daily paper, a pack of gum, and a note from the maid.
These are the complimentary bathroom products each guest receives. He designed the packing for them as well.
This is the logo for the rooftop restaurant he designed.
The logo is also on the labels he made for the French press cold coffee bottles …
… and on the business cards and to-go packages.
We also got to visit one of his classrooms to see some other projects he’s worked on.
This one was a screen printed concert poster assignment.
So, if you know anyone who needs a graphic designer, I’ve got your man! 🙂
On my blog I also love to feature projects made by readers using my line of Vintage Sign Stencils and my tutorials.
I was blown away by what a great job she did. Well done, Bridgett!
Kim @ Hunt and Host used the Fresh Flowers stencil on a wooden cheese crate to give it farmhouse style. See how she did it HERE.
Susan @ Homeroad has been busy using the stencils on some really fun and easy projects.
