It's a Banner Day


West Coast + Joan Didion + Happy Links


"Late afternoon on the West Coast ends with the sky doing all its brilliant stuff." - Joan Didion

Happy Links:

  • Joy Cho of the blog Oh Joy! is always coming up with fresh, fun content and design ideas and I can't help but be inspired. She has started a series about her experiences as a creative entrepreneur. It's a fascinating read, if you have a moment.
  • This post from fellow Sacramentan, Ashlee Gadd made me giggle. It's true... both the home rental and sales markets in the Sacramento region are insane right now. I'm so excited for her little family as they take the next step in their journey.
  • Farmers market season is in full swing and I am loving all of these smart tips from the gals at Considering You.

Wrap it Up:

  • Denver, Colorado is a officially a new favorite. I finally had a chance to write about my quick trip at the end of April. I'll be heading back soon for sure.
  • I was super excited to announce my participation in the "It's a Banner Day" collaborative art show this week. The gallery show is taking place through the end of the month at Hygienic Art Galleries in New London, CT and I'm so grateful for Kat and Patti Murphy who put the whole thing together!


I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

In the Gallery: It's a Banner Day

You GUYS. My artwork is hanging in a gallery nearly 3000 miles away and I have the lovely Patti Murphy to thank for it!


You see, Patti and her sister Kat invited artists from all over the world to participate in their "It's A Banner Day" show this month at Hygienic Art Galleries in New London, CT. The sisters wanted to add a collaborative element to their curated show exploring color and symbols. Here's a little snippet from the website:

The Banner Collaboration hopes to engage theartistic side of artists and designers and will also connect them on this website. Each banner is created by a different artist and will carry the theme of "It’s A Banner Day" sharing artful messages of hope, good news, happiness and success. 100% of banner proceeds will be donated to Hygienic Art Galleries.

So if you happen to be in New London this month, be sure to stop by Hygienic Art Galleries through June 29 to check out the show! You can also see more of the super fun banners online at the official "It's A Banner Day" website.

I hope you're having a banner day, friends!
