oh hey.

The LLP shop is still closed for the time being. I've decided to make some changes and take some leaps. The shop will reopen next week at my old Etsy location since they now offer instant downloads on digital items. There will also be some new digital prints added as well!

My blog will be moving too (fingers crossed). This is something I've put off for awhile now but really needs to be done. So I may be in and out here.

Lastly, I will not be offering a paper pack for the holidays this year. Sadface, I know. But after returning form my trip to Portland and getting inspired not only creatively but business wise, I've decided to change a lot in this area. In addition, I've had some new opportunities come up that are both exciting and a little scary but it's a leap for sure and I'm ready for the change.

TGIF, happy weekend and all that jazz!

let it snow

We're digging ourselves out of a weekend of non-stop snowfall. It was really quite pretty and I can't complain about it one bit. We are guaranteed a white Christmas, that's for sure.

Weekend highlights -the snow, naturally -spontaneous family portraits via iPhone propped up on chair, in the snow. Our dog is not photogenic like our past pups so it was insanely hard to get her in the shot. Mostly just her tail as she flew by us. Nice. -spontaneous sleepover with my niece. I had planned on getting some scrapping done but that all went south when she stepped in the door. Her parents were planning a surprise bedroom makeover for her and I was happy to oblige by keeping her for the weekend. Her and Tyler are two peas in a pod and I love seeing them play together. Even though she's 7 now, and I can see those "getting older" changes, she still knows how to get silly with a 3 year old. Love that.

Hope your weekend was filled with lovely, spontaneous things. Let's go Monday! (trying hard to be cheerful about that) xot


I'm sitting outside on one of the most beautiful fall days, taking in deep breaths of the cold autumn air. I watch Tyler run in his little boots...back + forth across the fallen leaves. Our dog is sitting against my legs as I pat her side and rub her ears. My husband is standing in the doorway, smiling at me from across the yard where I'm sitting, wrapped in my favorite grey sweater under the birch tree. I'm reminded of this quote, "I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'" -  Kurt Vonnegut 

This...this is nice. xot


Hello there.

It's been a long while but that's not unusual for the LLP blog. I serisouly have no clue what to do here anymore. I use to talk about my everyday office antics but now it's all toddler fits + Instagram.

So, I'll do just that. Begin. (in bullet points)

  • Screenprinting will be picking up (hopefully) this month. I've got several designs I'm super stoked about. I'm switching things up again for LLP and clearing out all stamps I have in stock. They will not be restocked the remainder of the year. Sale will start this Friday.
  • I have a new gig. I'm now a member of the Basic Grey team and I'm very stoked about that. I've been a long time fan of BG  and I'm anxious to get start in some projects.
  • I had the pleasure of chatting virtually with Catherine Davis and Kinsey WIlson for the Big Picture Class, Process.  (I hope I didn't sound too much like an awkward dork.) "The beauty is in the process" I love that. You can read more aobut the class here.



  • I was given the chance to be apart of Project Life 365 this week. The prompts given are well thought of and were actually quite challenging. It was inspiring to have these prompts in the back of my mind while I was doing the usual "remember this day" photo quest. Thanks PL365.
And I'm now going to indulge in quiet time with the October issue of Martha Stewart Living. That's what I call a good Monday night. xot.
