February Desktop Calendar // LoveCreative Blog

Wow, well that was a long blog break. Don’t have any excuses this time… I just felt I didn’t have anything to say. I’ve been maintaining this blog for over 5 years, so I tried out what it would feel like to not blog everyday. And it felt ok actually. I think it’s good to question our habits sometimes—really evaluate why we do things. But now that it’s December, I had to come back and give you your December desktop calendar!

Although I haven’t posted anything in a while, I’ve been working a lot behind the scenes. Next year (like, January!) is going to see a blog and portfolio re-design, as well as a whole content shift. It’s kind of scary and overwhelming, but I’m really excited too.

Happy October! It’s finally starting to feel like fall around here… sorta. Still in the 80s this week, but the air has a bit of a crispness to it. I hope you’re starting to enjoy the season.

I took this photo on film a couple years ago when we went to a pumpkin patch in Michigan. Download this wallpaper.

Happy Friday! It’s been a busy week trying to get back into the work/blog routine.

And can you believe it’s September!? Well, on Sunday it will be September and that’s really exciting. It may not feel like fall yet (it’s 93 degrees as I type this in Los Angeles) but autumn is coming! It’s back to school, apple pie, crisp air and boots and sweaters time (almost) and I can hardly wait. I’m so sick of shorts, sandals and burning my bum on my car seat… call me spoiled, but this LA native has had enough sunshine already.

That’s why I jumped the gun a little and made you this new desktop calendar! It’s inspired by a branding project I’m working on. Hopefully I’ll have the full thing to share with you soon, but for now download the desktop calendar here or click the image below.

Have a wonderful long Labor Day weekend everyone! xo

August is the only month without a holiday, so that’s actually one of reasons I chose it for our wedding month. (Being born 3 days before Christmas, I think I’m especially sensitive to having major life events next to holidays.) It’s also one of my favorite months—hot hot heat, vacations, and end of summer bliss.

I created this pattern for my wedding, but then didn’t end up using it. Works perfectly as a desktop background doesn’t it? Click here or the graphic below to download. Happy August!

I created this pattern for a recent client’s wedding stationery and really like it. While I was putting this wallpaper together the flowers reminded me of fireworks! So fitting for this week’s festivities isn’t it?

One of the biggest hits at my bridal shower last month was a simple memory matching game. It was so popular, 3 people asked me to forward them the candy list and icons I made, so I figured I would share it with you as well!

Here’s how it works:

Cover a piece of foam core with wrapping paper. Download and print 2 sets of the wedding themed icons I designed. Cut out the icons and arrange them randomly on the board. Number Post-It Notes 1-48 and stick them with push pins on the board.

Guests take turns trying to find matches. When they find one, they win a candy bar that goes with the icon!

Here’s the candy list:

Bride – Hot Tamales
Groom – Big Hunk
Bridesmaids – Smarties
Groomsmen – 3 Musketeers
Honeymoon – Red Hots or Skor
Reception – 100 Grand
In-Laws – Snickers or Nutrageous
Arguments – Warheads
Nicknames – Sweet Tarts
Diamond Ring – Ring Pop
Ringbearer – Butterfinger
Flower Girl – Junior Mints
Commitment – Now and Laters or Everlasting Gobstoppers
Tie the Knot – Twizzlers
On “Cloud 9″ – Milky Way
True Love – Good and Plenty
Wedding Vendors – Pay Day
First Child – Baby Ruth
Wedding Gifts – Mounds
Bride and Groom – Twix
Vows – Dove Promises or Gushers
Alcohol – Lifesaver
1st Dance – Symphony
Wedding Photos – Treasures or Look


Don’t forget to download the icons! I hope you have as much fun with this game as we did!

Happy May 1st! Can you believe we’re 5 months into 2013 already? This year has been so good to me… It’s great to just think back on all the excitement (starting my own business, getting engaged, etc.) Lucky 13!

But enough of that, let’s look to the future. I kept things sweet and simple for this month’s desktop download. Don’t forget Mother’s Day on May 12!
