Love This/Live That: Gatsby Print

I’ve been toying with the idea of a new series lately- combining my love for graphic design with fabulous things for the home. Graphic design is hugely inspiring for me, so why not translate it into an inspiring space? ┬áTo kick it off, I’m using a print by The Heads of State that brings to life all of the business cards that were described in (one of my absolute favorite books) The Great Gatsby!

Judge a Book by its Cover

My apartment pretty much looks like a tornado hit it these days. And by that, I mean it looks like a tornado tore through it, leaving only destruction in its path. Or at least, I’m sure that’s how my mom would describe it. Anyways, that’s what happens when I’m stressed annnnd having mystery illness problems- my apartment is the first thing to go by the wayside. Whoops. Add to that the fact that I recently got some gorgeous craft books from Miz Justina Blakeney and the fact that it’s tax time (which means papers everywhereeee) and it’s becoming scary even for me.

To (attempt) to control some of the clutter, I’ve been searching for bookends that might help corral my unruly papers and notebooks that seem to be multiplying like rabbits lately. Here are a few of my faves:

A Pinterest Primer

I got asked to teach some awesome people how to use Pinterest… but because we have such crazy schedules, we decided some sort of tutorial would be better. Well, the Pinterest Primer is finally done: 19 pages of Pinny goodness, covering the basics of boards, pins, following, and re-pinning, as well as some Pinterest etiquette tips!

Click on the image to get the PDF…and feel free to Pin/stumble this post for your Pinterest-virgin friends. (links are at the bottom)
