Happy Birthday to a Special Lady.

Hi guys!

This is just a quick note to let you know that today is a special day. I sponsor two children from Honduras (Dany and Darlin) and today is Darlin’s 15th birthday! Here is the most recent photo I have from her, it was taken last year.

And here is a photo of when I first started sponsoring her in 2003.

 

What an amazing lady she has grown up to be. I am so proud of…

{World Exploration} Haiti From a Child’s Eye (Part 2)

Two weeks ago I told you about the most emotionally moving experience I’ve had to date. And last week, I wrote more about the art project we did with the children in Haiti and showcased some of their photos.

These are the rest of the photos. Once again, they are more moving then my words could ever be so I will simply let you see for yourself. Here is Haiti from a child’s eye – part…

{World Exploration} Haiti From a Child’s Eye (Part 1)

Last week I told you about the most emotionally moving experience I’ve had to date. There was a bit more to the story than I had time to tell last week.

While in Haiti, we really wanted to focus on the children that didn’t need medical attention and that had food and water. What didn’t they have? Their parents. Their friends. Their school teachers. Their daily lives. So my best friend and I…

{World Exploration} Haiti

One of the most emotionally moving experiences I’ve had to date occurred in 2010.

But before I can tell you about what moved me, I have to describe how I came to be in that position.

On January 13, 2010, I woke up to find the world in turmoil after the catastrophic 7.0 earthquake in Port-au-prince, Haiti. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing on the news. These people lost everything they…

Travel Thursday – My trip to Ireland

Where’s one place you’ve been that you want to revisit time and time again?

For me, that place is Ireland. I’ve been lucky enough to spend a good deal of time there and I’m in love.

My most recent trip there was actually a year ago this week. For an unforgettable St. Patrick’s Day trip, where else would you go but Ireland? And we were lucky enough to be IN the Dublin St. Patrick’s Day…

Travel Thursday – Austin edition

Sometimes, everything you need is right under your nose. And yet, you overlook it. Either because you think the answer is too simple to be right. Or because you see it every day that it becomes routine.

I’m lucky enough to live in a city filled to the brim with creative inspiration. Austin, Texas is dubbed the live music capital of the world and hosts two major music festivals every year…

Travel Thursday – Big Inspiration in the Big Easy

Travel Thursday is where I like to show off various places around the world that inspire my (and my team’s!) designs.

It’s been a really long time since I’ve been to New Orleans. A REALLY long time. In fact, I haven’t been back there since I became a designer. But I’m still so in love with the city’s vibrant culture and I have plans to go back soon to gather some inspiration.

I’ve already…

Life Is Inspiring

When you come back home from a pretty epic trip, two things immediately happen.

You have a vacation hangover. It’s hard to get back to work because you’d rather be right back on a flight to where ever you last were. 
You are pretty damn inspired.

That’s exactly where I was when I returned home from my Ireland trip last month.

The trip itself wasn’t all that long – 2 and a half weeks. But…

Ireland and the London Olympics 2012

Today, I embark on a new journey. I am going to Ireland for 3 weeks and then to London for the Olympics for a week.

I plan to come back with many photographs and stories for you guys, but in the meantime I’ll leave you with a poster I designed specifically for this trip. It’s just fan art. It’s not official Olympic collateral.

Enjoy all t…
