You mean I do something besides horses?

In the world of horses…
Our show this weekend has sneaked up on us but I feel relatively confident. Foster has jumped almost all of the fences on the XC course, and it will be my job to give him a confident ride and hopefully come home double clean. While it would be nice to bring home a ribbon, our division is one of the biggest I’ve seen at a schooling show (two classes of ~12 each in Beginner Novice!) so I’m going to try not to worry about that.

Otherwise I have been preoccupying myself with several design projects for friends. I’ve been working hard after hours to build my portfolio and experiment a bit in the design department. Here’s what I’ve been working on:

Cori Spade Designs
I met Cori via her boyfriend, one of my good college buddies from State. It turns out she is a sweetheart, and a wonderfully talented fashion designer that even showed a collection on the runway at New York Fashion Week! This project was really fun as fashion is an industry I have never designed for and I got to practice some new techniques for her site. Design and coding from top to bottom by me! Go check it out at !

Wedding Invitations
This has been a project for a sweet coworker of mine who is going to have a b-e-a-utiful wedding in a few weeks. I can’t wait to see how her elegant gold theme is going to work out. I’m also working on several other elements for this wedding so there will be more photos to come!

Harry Potter Engagement Invitations
My best friend is getting married next fall and to celebrate, we are going to have the most amazing Harry Potter themed party you will have ever seen! I can’t share any of the details yet except for the invitations I designed, which were delivered -by owl- this past week, but hold on to your sorting hats, it’s going to be a doozy!

That’s it for now! Like I said I will have more updates on these designs (and party) but that will come next month. In the meantime, we have our fingers crossed for this weekend and will be sure to do a recap next week! Wish us luck! 🙂
