art+learning+beauty: gryphon design collective

 i know i promised some big news, so here it is! i’m very excited to announce my newest venture- gryphon design collective. i’ve been working with michele slobin apprille for a number of months now with the development of the collective.

gryphon recruits world-wide talent in the field of graphic design, fine art, and creative writing. all of our products are printed in the usa and made with recycled materials.

one of gryphon’s proudest accomplishments thus far is the introduction of our customized children’s books. we’re one of the only companies out there to offer image capture technology, which allows the child to be painted right into the story. these books are beautifully written and illustrated by designers from our collective.

gryphon also produces learning language games that inspire kids to learn while they play. pretty cute, right?

in addition to making reading and learning more fun and creative for the kiddos, we also strive to promote our wonderful collection of designers. we’ve got fine art cards and notebooks for every aesthetic taste.

designers from left to right: jenikah joy, usa / juan milewski, argentina / gregery miller, usa / david faust, usa  / yuriy ratush, ukraine 

this has been such a fun and creative adventure for me- i’m proud to be a part of something so beautiful. if you think these products are as lovely as i do, please support us by making a purchase! you can even use promo code rhx10 to save 20%!

oh hey, so this is the second time i’ve forgotten to blog for six months (almost seven, dang). but it’s been a pretty crazy six months, so try to forgive me. that is assuming anyone is still out there.

i’ve got a pretty exciting post coming up in the next few days, but here’s a very quick recap of my year so far.

my last post was around christmas (?!). so, christmas happened. my handmade tree skirt and felted garland  were appreciated. my first christmas at my house was (i think) a success.

mom, bro, furry kids, and me on christmas morning

my sweet new cousin, maddie beth, was born last winter. i got to make a quick trip down to south alabama to meet her.

 in march, i treated myself to a 28th birthday trip. it’s my golden year (i’m 28 on the 28th), so i felt entitled to start it out with a bang.

i visited san francisco

 and portland, oregon.

i might have fallen in love with this guy in o’bryant square.

ace hotel, portland

and i got a tattoo.

it says “create”, lest i should forget

 and then i worked and lived life very unspectacularly. until work transferred me from nashville

to boston.

and so, i’m here in boston. where they laugh when i say y’all and they don’t have air conditioning even though it’s hot, but they do have beaches and baseball and breweries.

i’m working on a new project which i’m really excited about. stay tuned (it won’t take six.seven months, promise. i finally bought my domain name and everything, so i can’t let that $18 go to waste).
