One of the last projects I worked on before I returned to Norway was for a photo-shoot for Wine Country Wedding magazine. I had been working with Off The Beaten Path Weddings during the past couple months and was excited when they asked me to help them with the photo shoot. My favorite part of the project was the cake. I think the leafy “head-pieces” are super cute wrapped around the...
Here are some pictures of the latest projects I’ve worked on. I just finished the logo and business cards for my younger brother Steven who has been devoting his time to film. He has filmed weddings and events as well as some music videos. He also produces short sketches for Youtube. I recently posted one of his videos here. I designed a logo for my Dad’s business some time ago, but...
One of my brothers recently finished this video documenting the olive harvest for St. Helena Olive Oil Co.
How Cool is This? →
One of my FB friends just posted this to his wall, and I had to share. Which is your favorite? I’m feelin’ the “airplane” font. I think I’ll be downloading several, though.
Mother's Day Flowers
Besides the fact that Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate my wonderful Mother, it’s also an excuse to play with flowers!
One thing Eirik loves is candles. Lots of them. I’ve always thought hanging mason jars with a votive inside were really pretty. At work we sell honey which we sample out. The jars are perfect, so I asked all my co-workers to save the honey jars for me when they open a new sample. One of my co-workers, Sandy, told me that she was good at wire wrapping and offered to make the jars hang-able...
MUSHROOM CUTENESS! →
I just about died right now when I saw this. If I were to have a wedding registry it would definitely be on it!
Gray, Green, Cream, and Blush
So I’ve been getting some questions about what the design theme will be for our wedding. I started reading a wedding magazine the other night, in the name of research, and all of the sudden my chest began tightening and my breath shortened — I was quickly heading towards an anxiety attack. So I decided to put on the breaks and go back to what I knew. Having worked as a florist I have...
Wow, so I’m engaged! My fiance, Eirik, proposed to me after my Grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary celebration. I honestly couldn’t have been more surprised. I knew he wanted to proposed when he visited, but when he dropped to his knee it was the last thing I expected at that moment. I started to ask “What are you doing?” then I saw the ring (and a slightly...
Do You Like My Hat?
Here are some pictures of my niece modeling the adorable hat that her mother crocheted for her. This is just one of many. If you love it as much as I do let me know, and I’ll get you some purchasing information — niece not included ; )
Olive Oil seems to be dominating my life lately. In August I was hired to work at St. Helena Olive Oil Co. If you come to our Rutherford location anytime between 10:30am-5pm, Friday - Tuesday, you’ll more than likely find me there, ready to saturate your mind with all kinds of Olive Oil related knowledge. If I’m not there, it’s because I’ve been “banished” to...
When I lived in Switzerland I met a group of individuals who became like family. Often, after our day was finished, we’d hike or hitch-hike up to a village where we’d enjoy each other’s company along with a drink. It was tradition for us to toast each other with a hearty “Santé!” When I think of this time in my life, I think of Music, Cooking, Laughter, Community,...
