P.S. If you’d like to reminisce in the past 50 DIY Days of Christmas… here you are: 2011 & 2012. Also, thank you Jess (IROCKSOWHAT) for making this year’s logo (she also made the 2012 logo). 

Wednesday Goodies: So awesome.

One moment I’m a mom… just doing my normal thing. The next, I’m a babbling mess over the most simple and beautiful piece of kid artwork. I mean… my kiddo has given me so many mini-artworks, but something about her little hand painted on this paper made me lose my mind. Well, at least tear up and put it up high where she can’t reach it/color it. This will be framed. It will be a lovely piece to share with her boyfriend… for when she starts dating… when she’s 40.

Alt Summit NYC: Business card collections

Every time I head to a conference I get a TON of business cards from very lovely and talented people. I keep many of them for future reference, but really some get lost/torn up by my kiddo. SO, why haven’t I taken photos of my past cards? It seems like I should. Take photos, link, and collect my cards on Pinterest. Bam. Need to look up someone? I got it all organized. All of these ladies (and a couple of dudes) worked hard to create these mini masterpieces, and I want to remember them.

My first round of bizz cards are from Alt Summit in NYC 2013. A crazy collection of cool people. See a card you like? I highly suggest wandering to their site. Because I always see patterns/similarities in things… I had to organize the similar cards into groups. So many different ways I could have organized these, but these were my favorite.
