March mood board. Hello, pastel spring! Please, be good!

My March mood board is probably the one that i like the most out of all 12 chapters of a year. After so many months of cold weather, lots of clothes to put on and trying to keep warm, finally spring is here!

I realized i liked March and spring in general more than i thought. Though i’ll always be a summer girl, spring is the one i’m eagerly waiting for when autumn starts. I am in love with blossom cherry trees and magnolia trees and spring flowers. Since i am a total Japan lover and Japan is famous for its sakura trees (cherry blossom), this mood board reflects my love for the both.

On my last month’s mood board i was talking about the 2 apps i had just begun using: the one reminding me to drink water and the workout one. Well, one of them stuck with me, the other didn’t. Yes, the water one did. February was an incredibly busy month for us and i’m really really thankful for it. Thanks to our “free shipping in February” promotion, we received many orders and we’re still working on about 4 different projects at the moment. The downside was that i didn’t have any time left for my workout app routine. Still, i’m not giving up on it and i plan on picking it up again.

The lack of free time is also keeping me from taking photos of all the new boxes we made and they’ve really been piling up! The time for them will definitely come, though!

Getting back on track, here’s what my March mood board looks like:

February mood board. Hello, romantic February! Please, be good!

Even though they say this is the month of love, my February mood board doesn’t really reflect that. Actually i don’t really like this month much. I always seem to catch a cold in February and this time is no different.

Well, i may not like the month, but i’m doing my very best to keep active and take on new challenges. There’s also the “Free shipping letterpress” promotion for this month, so i’m making sure the cold weather doesn’t get me down. Although i admit i’d much rather just stay inside, drink hot cocoa with lots of cream and read a bunch of books. That’s definitely my view on February. We can’t always get what we want, right? Therefore, i get on to the second best things: work on both the letterpress shop and the packaging shop, make plans, organize stuff.

I tend to not drink enough water, which is not good, so i got one of those little phone apps to remind me to drink. It may sound stupid, but it does the trick for me. I’ve started a couple of days before and so far so good.

Then, today i’ll start a 30 Days workout challenge. This is actually also a phone app, so i guess i’m finally starting to realize the benefits of phone apps? Anyway, i’ll get back with updates on this one, but i’m pretty confident it will be ok. Or maybe i just got a boost of confidence altogether since i just turned 30? Hmmm…. it might be…

Oh well, my February mood board is kinda like this…

Autumn mood board inspiration. Hello, colorful September! Please, be good!

I know i’m late posting my autumn mood board inspiration, but it’s better late than never, right?

autumn mood boardIn my previous article i was saying “bye” to procrastination and i swear i did my best to have a clean break up. It was a lot more difficult than i thought, but i’m still trying hard. Eventually, i’ll go on a full-on working spree, so i’ll definitely make up for the lost time. Even so, even while dealing with my procrastination issues, i still did a lot of work anyway. Our letterpress shop is going great and the boxes and packaging one is even better, so i can only be thankful (since it’s definitely the season for giving thanks!).

Getting back to my autumn mood board, i must admit it took a long time for me to appreciate this season. I actually hated it! No more sun, ugly weather, rain and cold, leaves falling… but mainly just the bad weather. It was actually a blogger who changed my mind entirely. It’s thanks to her that i now get to enjoy autumn just as much as i enjoy the other seasons!

I have many things i want to do, so i think my motivation is coming back. I’ve actually just finished designing some business cards for a neurologist and recently we made letterpress business cards for a dentist and her team, so i’m thinking maybe the medical field?… Oh well, i just hope i’ll be able to take good photos!

Seaside mood board inspiration: Hello, sunny July! Please, be good!

Time flies so fast! It seems like only yesterday i was creating the floral mood board for June, but now here i am with the seaside mood board for July! Be it as it may, i’m still extremely excited for my upcoming summer holiday. It’s getting nearer and nearer! So as we’re preparing and making plans for our holiday in the sunny Greece, it was necessary to put together some inspirational mood boards of sandy beaches and crystal blue waters!

Getting back to reality just a tick, we’re still working hard for both our letterpress printing shop and our boxes and packaging one. I’ll soon give some updates on some other successfully completed letterpress projects as well as the current ones we’re working on. Also, i’ll be praying to the photography gods to help me take some good photos of the bunch of new boxes we got. In the mean time, don’t forget about our Christmas in July Free Shipping letterpress offer! Take this opportunity to stock up on your letterpress printed stationery no matter where you are! Shipping is no longer a problem!
