The Journey Map

I recently made a Journey Map for someone, and have gotten so much interest in it, that we will officially be starting to sell Journey Maps! The Journey Map is a 11X17 map of the world, mounted on cardstock and comes with 10 brads and extra string.

Stay tuned in the coming months for lots of other new stuff, including: the much anticipated 'World Edition: Journey Journal' and the 'City Livin' Journey Journal: Chicago Edition' (which will be available at the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago!)

Cafe Centraal is rad

So I am totally in love with the new Cafe Centraal in Bayview, here in Milwaukee. They have the most awesome patio ever! Adam and I have been going there quite frequently, to sip on their many tasty brews on the best patio in the world! If you're in Milwaukee, I would recommend checkin' it out.

Too Cool: Blu Dot

I'm a big fan of Blu Dot. I'm an even bigger fan of their affordable collection for Urban Outfitters: Too by Blu Dot. Mmmm modern delicious-ness.

Coffee Lust

Over the weekend I started thinking about how the 3 big coffee roasting companies in Milwaukee have some pretty rad logos/design workin' for them. There is of course the ever popular Alterra, which I love. But I have a super special place in my heart for Anodyne Coffee Roasters and Stone Creek Coffee. I especially love Stone Creeks labels, and Anodyne's vintage feel. Oh yeah, and their coffee is delicious!

Staring Contest

I laughed out loud when I saw this staring contest board. This is a great idea to play at a party. Love that bracket!

My newest Small Stakes Poster Saying that I LOVE the work of the Small Stakes designer, Jason Munn, is an understatement. I bought my fourth Small Stakes poster over the weekend and got it today! And holy guacamole, is it a beauty. I know I've posted about Munn's work in the past, but it just so creative and smart. The print quality on his posters are just beyond gorgeous, you have to see them first hand. What can I say, I am in love.

Looking Forward to...

Just applied for the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago again this year. Last year was a say the least. But we had such great feedback and so many amazing people stopped by, despite the record rainfall. So I am looking forward to a sunny Renegade this year (fingers crossed!) I'm super excited!
