Open Letter to #mombosses
2016 Review and 2017 Goals
Hey there, Are you tired? Have you been up since sunrise? Are you, maybe, sitting in your kid’s bed with your laptop typing out an open letter to fellow mom-bosses? Yeah, hi. You probably haven’t showered 7 days straight since your child was born. (If you have, please tell me your secrets.) You are most […]
In The Process: New Years Eve Custom Invitation
It’s that time of the year again – time for reflection and making goals for a better year. This past year has been a lot of “WTF am I doing?” and “Damn, I’m good!” Some amazing things happened. I have made some wonderful new friends that are also on this entrepreneur journey. Thanks to The […]
September 2016 Update
Hey guys and gals! As a designer, I love seeing the behind-the-scene processes of other designers. So, I thought I would give you a glimpse of what it’s like to work with me on a custom invitation. First off, there’s sketches. A ton of them. And, no- I don’t share most of them. Typically I will […]
August Alphabet Recap
It’s crazy that an entire month has passed! Things I have learned this month include: I really stink at self-control. I try to do too much. I should enjoy being bored once in awhile. So of course, my ABC did not get done. My sketching for the shop, did not get done. Good goly Ceindy […]
August 2016 Life Update!
Where did summer go? I’m so ready for fall and the breeze and boots! The ABC challenge for August started off great… for about 4 days. But thanks to Hermine and the power outage, I was able to finish off the entire alphabet! Here are some of my favs: I used Micron and […]
March and April ABCs
Ai-ya! (Very common phrase in Chinese households that is similar to Oh Shiiii…) I am so sorry. It has taken me a few months to take a break and think about this whole Ceindy Doodles business. Thoughts like, “How committed do I want to be?” “Do you REALLY think you can make time for this?” “Sleep vs. […]
Simple Nautical Tie the Knot Invitations
Hello people of the interwebs. Yes, I am aware I am behind. I have no great reasons for this at all and I deeply apologize for my lack of greatness. March This was the month I finally purchased a nib and working between a pointed, flexible nib and a flat one, I wanted to do […]
I had a lovely opportunity to work with Amanda and Matt for their special day. The wedding invitation designed for them was based on a theme of “tie the knot” in a casual formal vibe. When Amanda contacted me about their wedding, she described the decorations of burlap, sea glass, rope, chalkboards, and drift wood. From that, and a pinterest board we shared, I came up with several sketches for them to choose from.
Hey there! I actually messed up and used the wrong tool this month, but that’s okay ^_^
I had a very fun month of using the Pentel Aquash waterbrush. I used it along with the Artist’s Loft brand watercolors that can be found at Michael’s for approximately $5.00. It was a lot of fun, but I still needed to get used to the flexibility and almost unpredictability of the brush.
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a month since the new year. As the end of the first month arrives, I wanted to show my first alphabet of the 12 months, 12 tools, 12 ABCs. I’ve also started using #12abcs to keep these together. ^_^
