It’s definitely ramping up for winter here in CT—it is officially cold out there! At the end of last year I spilled bleach all over my favorite Pim Larkin jacket while were cleaning our apartment before we moved out. Let’s just say that I am missing that jacket! Now I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new wrap jacket— which pretty much looks like I will be wearing a blanket which I am pretty excited about.

I made this free printable a few weeks ago and I am just getting around to sharing it with you. Thought it was a nice quote, so I wanted to design something with it to share with you.

Print it out, share it digitally, give the print as a thoughtful gift, spread the love! Click on download button, to get the PDF.

Clean White Natural Living

I have always loved the idea of all white neutral living. I am always attracted to it but always keep a pretty eclectic feel in both my studio and my home and I also love pops of color. One day I think it will happen, and my place will be exploding with a million of these white crocheted floor cushions and little bits of beachy color mixed in.

Design Process: Moodboard

Branding Moodboard Patti Murphy DesignsThe weekend is almost here! yay! The week flew by as usual! I wanted to share a behind the scenes look at an inspiration moodboard that I put together for one of my current branding projects. She is a photographer who specializes in weddings. The mark will be inspired by nature, earth and the outdoors. The tone we are going for is bohemian, a bit handmade, and natural.

We both are so excited to see where this inspiration will takes us and looking forward to executing these marks I have in my head.

P.S. I am loving the use of my clipboards to help organize each on-going project. I have an old record rack next to my desk with them all lined up. In addition to basecamp I need my hands-on materials note-taking that I translate into to-do lists on basecamp. Do you have any organizational methods that you are using to manage your workflow? Would love to hear about them!

Documentaries to Watch

Netflix Documentaries

In between my bingeing of Sons of Anarchy on Netflix, I fit in a few documentaries that I wanted to see this past weekend. One was Tiny: Story About Living Small. The film follows one couple’s attempt to build a “tiny house” from scratch, and profiles other families who have downsized their lives into homes smaller than the average parking space. Got me really thinking about what is that I want for my future and a little more about sustainability and good design. I love our little cottage we are living in right now and it makes me wonder if I really do want something bigger for my future or not?! hmmm…

Tiny: Story About Living Small

The other documentary was Joan Rivers :  A Piece of Work. The film exposes the private dramas of legendary comedian and pop icon Joan Rivers as she fights tooth and nail to remain the queen of comedy. It really opened my eyes to how hardworking and passionate she was. She really opens up in front of the camera and a whole other side that surprised me. Thanks for all the laughs Joan, you are missed!

Joan Rivers :  A Piece of Work

What documentaries should I watch next? I have a long list and it is really hard to decide which ones are worth the watch. Let me know if you have some good ones in the comments below.
