1. Article on the Confused & Diffused Creative
I love the Braid blog, but this article struck out to me right away as I found myself leaning in and nodding along as I read.
Let me guess. You’re the creative type with lots of ideas. So many ideas! TONS of ideas! And while that should feel like a blessing it often feels like a curse that has you either A) paralyzed or B) crying into your pillow because you can’t get focused, you feel scattered, and you don’t know where to start.

2. The Importance of a Bio Photo
For at least a year now I have been saying that I need a new headshot… especially since that headshot over there on the right of my blog isn’t really a headshot since I had to crop my sister out of the original! This post by Jasmine Star has reminded me yet again that I really need to get a new photo!! Anyone up for trading services? 🙂
3. Colorado Tourism Wine Bottles
A few weeks ago I posted a Texas illustration but while my husband’s heart pines for the state where bigger is better (and hotter, thanks Jess for reminding me it isn’t all about BBQ)… my heart is still pining away for Colorado. And you guys, Colorado has some really awesome graphic design companies that put out work like this icon patterned wine bottle (designed by Karsh Hagen), for the annual Governor’s Tourism Conference in Colorado.

4. Globes by Bellerby & Co.
The husband and I tend to collect globes and maps in all shapes and sizes, so I was definitely drawn to the craftmanship of this London workshop. So many beautiful and top notch quality globes! Found via Looks Like Good Design.
5. Mocha Mint Frappe
My best friend and I have a crazy obsession for all things mint… and I think when she gets back from her honeymoon we may need to try these. Thanks Emma for making my whole mouth water at the sight of these! Find the recipe here.
