2016 Clear-Out Sale!

shop clearance

I’m still figuring out what I want to do with the Dragonflight Dreams screen printing shop this year. But I know one thing for sure: the one of a kind shirts need to go. They are great- bright and colorful, and an important step in my shop-running process. But they’re also taking up valuable shelf space and shop space. All of the OOAK shirts (tanks, tees, and long sleeve) have been marked down to sale prices. They are already printed and heat-set, so are ready to ship.

AND, as of today, you can take an additional 16% off with code DDCLEAR16.

Help me make room for new and exciting things to come in 2016!

5 Things Friday

5 Things Friday

1. In October, after my name change and all, I re-launched my design business with a new focus and new name. It’s Studio Guerassio, and I focus on design & branding for the lifestyle sector (food & drink, writers, artists & makers, culture, events, balance & wellness). I’d like to ask a favor of all of my lovely readers: if you know a business owner or blogger or solopreneur who fits that focus and is in need of design work, please send them my way! I’d be über grateful. 2. Random thoughts on film and TV: I was browsing through […]

Finally Hitched: Wedding Pictures!!

Guerassio-Cobb Wedding

Not quite 2 months ago, Ian and I finally tied the knot! 😄 We were married at Villa Antonia here in northwest Austin hill country. After having nervously watched the weather for two weeks, September 20th dawned bright and beautiful. We had gorgeous weather that somehow managed to also not be too hot for the non-Texans attending. Our ceremony was outdoors under an arch, overlooking the rolling hills. Our reception was indoors in a lovely space that included a stage and built-in bar. Both were the perfect size for our relatively small wedding of 65 people. Ian and I were […]

32 Before 32

32 Before 32

As promised yesterday, here is my new list of goals that I hope to accomplish before my next birthday. On a sidenote, I might be getting old enough that I need to do like a half-age before age kind of list (i.e. 16 before 32). Or else fill it up with really easy things. To be mulled on for next year. Now, in no particular order: Go to a design conference. I’ve been to a blogging conference, and a freelance conference, but not a conference specifically for design. Staycation or vacation with Ian. After the wedding and honeymoon this year, […]

31 Before 31 Goals Recap

31 Before 31 Goals Recap

It’s that time of year again. No, not pumpkin spice season. Today is my birthday! I turned 31 in the wee hours of this morning. We are kind of Event’d out, though, so not doing anything big. Ian has something small planned for tonight, and then tomorrow we’re doing dinner out with a group of friends. Low-key, just how I like it! So, my annual check-in. Last year, I made a pretty ambitious list of goals to complete before this birthday. Then, of course, life happened. In some very good ways (got engaged and married!) and bad ways (finding out […]

Taking Stock

Sienna reluctant to leave her cushy bed. Possibly her favorite birthday present ever.

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot. Making: myself take deep breaths and consciously relax my tense muscles. Cooking: nothing. No energy for cooking. We are living in a frozen food or fast food land right now. Drinking: My usual morning French vanilla cappuccino. Reading: the various news email subscriptions I get. Wanting: to go back to sleep. I wasn’t ready for Monday. Looking: at my planner and my Trello boards, and kind of panicking at how full they are. Playing: lately I’ve been playing the Talos Principle via Steam, and I […]

Taking Stock

Lots of construction going on at my mom's house, but check out the awesome new deck!

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot.   Making: my way through 2 weeks worth of emails. Cooking: something for dinner tonight, no idea what yet as I need to go to the store first. Drinking: my morning cappuccino. Reading: emails. I finished the book I was reading last night. Wanting: a week of vacation to recover from my trip, haha. Looking: at my poor desk plant that was neglected while I was gone. Playing: with Sienna, who I missed terribly. Deciding: more wedding stuff, little details. Wishing: to win the lottery […]
