The Ampersands of Typekit

branding inspiration

I tend to over think things. At the end of the summer I took a break from this ol’ blog for that very reason.

Even after I came back I felt unsure. I feel focused now, sure of what I want to be putting out into the world. To celebrate all of that I am redoing the blog. Not a little botox, but a full on facelift. I am not a graphic designer, nor am I a web designer but I am teaming up with David and diving head first into this project. I have a new basic template in mind and now I am working on my logo. I have been gathering inspiration images, and I am drawn to the same color palette I have always loved- pink, grey and gold. I also love a mix of natural elements and very graphic and glitzy. I will keep you informed. I love the creative process, I really do.

You can also find David over at VMac & Cheese today, blogging about blogging! The Man Behind Buckets and Bunches is clever and sweet.


  1. i’m so excited for you to rebrand! i’ve been looking into purchasing a layout over this last week, but i just don’t even know where to start. i love pugly pixel and peace of cake/piece of mind’s work, but i want something that really fits my blog. i’m so excited to see what you come up with!


  2. Hooray! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  3. Eeee–how exciting!

    PS–I just spent a good 5 minute staring at those ampersands. Gah, how I love a good font!

  4. I love pink, grey, and gold. That is kind of what we have going. Can’t go wrong in my opinion. :) Thanks for stopping by today. XOXO

  5. I’m thinking of a rebrand too! It’s such a big process. I like the look of your blog but am excited to see what you come up with next! Love the color palette that you’ve chosen.
    Isn’t That Charming.
