Collage Artist Studio Tour by Mae Chevrette on Lesley Myrick Art + Design Hi friends - I'm back! We're home from a whirlwind month-long trip to Minnesota and Ontario to visit family. With a new Nikon DSLR in hand (I HAVE BEEN WANTING ONE FOREVER) I'm excited to be returning to the blogging world and share more peeks into my life, art, and home with you.

What's that - you want to see more photos of my baby too? I can help you out with that.

While I get settled in back home and back at work (today's my first day), here are some fantastic links I've been inspired by over the past few weeks.

+ Have a business idea? Here are 5 tips to evaluate it.

+ Great tips for writing a brand bio.



+ If you're looking for work, be sure you're not making these resume mistakes.

+ How would you deal with no email after work hours?



+ A cute DIY artwork.






Happy Thursday!
 

Bye for Now, Back Next Month

Bye for Now, Back Next Month
Hello there! Just checking in to let you know that I'll be taking a blog hiatus for the next 4 weeks or so - we're traveling to both Minnesota and Ontario to introduce our little man to friends and family. 

Sending much love to you from the skies as we fly with a 2-month old (wish us luck). Bye for now - back next month!

Happy Friday!

Lovely Web Links featuring an office coffee cart from A Beautiful Mess

+ Presence is a muscle - strengthen it.

+ Why it's important to go with your gut.

+ 8 pronunciation errors that made the English language what it is today. Fascinating!

+ A super cool typographic art DIY.

+ Not surprisingly, Sarah Jessica Parker's NYC home is gorgeous and eclectic.

+ I want a coffee cart like this at home! Or at work. Or wherever.

+ Ha! Director Judd Apatow admits that everything he's done is just revenge for Freaks and Geeks (one of my favorite shows) getting cancelled.


+ Beauty buffs - here's a great tool for finding the right shade of foundation in many brands. Great if you're looking for a less expensive makeup alternative. (MAC, I love you, but you're spendy!)

Happy Thursday!
 

Project Life

Project Life Scrapbook by Lesley Myrick Art and Design Have you heard of Project Life? It's an easy way to create scrapbooks - photos and journaling cards just slide into slots on pre-made layouts. WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT. 

As someone who loves scrapbook supplies (I mean, hello, have you seen my art?) I've never actually taken the time to create a scrapbook - and having a baby has definitely made me realize the importance of capturing life in a tangible form. I've been printing Instagram photos and having a blast documenting the first couple months of my little dude's life. 

Just thought I'd share a peek into a recent creative project. 

Happy Monday!

Lovely Web Links from Lesley Myrick Art + Design. Art by Bedelgeuse. 
It feels like such a cliche as a new mom, but seriously, I don't know what else to blog about right now except Ford! Guess I should revisit the link below with ideas of what to write about, huh? 

+ Designers - it's important to search out and define your niche.

+ Love this #realtalk - your fear is full of shit.




+ This cracked me up. Jamie the Very Worst Missionary's son got access to her Facebook account - and was so funny and brilliant in his secret takeover.

+ Yum - why you should always order the bigger pizza.

Hope you are having a most wonderful week. Happy Thursday!
