New Site + A lesson learned


This is the little cake my husband brought home to celebrate the launch of my new website and some exciting steps forward in this little business of mine (side note: he’s pretty great like that). I’ve spent the last month or so working on this new look, and while I’m still adding to it and tweaking little bits here and there, it’s live and launched, and that is a good thing.

My motto throughout this particular re-design process has been “done is better than perfect.” The perfectionist in me that spent entirely too much time rearranging the photos in the portfolio galleries doesn’t buy it, but I’m slowly convincing myself that it’s the only way to keep moving forward and making progress. The cake incentive helps too…

So, without further ado, thank you for visiting, and please take a look around– I’d love to hear what you think!

Oh, and one last note/ cautionary tale: Back up. Always. Always. Back. Up. Long story short (as I’m sure you’ve guessed) I lost my entire blog in the launch due to a silly mistake, and now I’m having to rebuild the archives post by post. I had the structure backed up, but not the content. Argh. If you find yourself in a similar predicament, I’m finding google cache pretty handy!

Happy Monday, and have a great week! – Laura


back in business

I’m not proud to admit that it took me a while to remember how to log in to this poor neglected blog. But I’m back, so let’s catch up quickly…

We welcomed our sweet Caroline in January…


…and we moved from central Missouri to the Baltimore area in March.

Fast forward a few months and we’re falling into a nice little routine, which provides me a few hours of work time during naps and a few extra hours most evenings after little bug is down for the night. Thank goodness for coffee in the morning and a glass of wine to end the day.

I’ve got quite a stack of design work to show and lots of exciting projects on the horizon, so check back soon!

xo, Laura
