I have the coolest friends...

So last week two of my friends featured me on their blogs and I think it is only fitting to do the same for them...

I know I mentioned Jessie-Lee's blog, The Hyphen Tantrum, before, but I think I should give her some more credit, she definitely deserves it. As I said, she is the entire reason why I'm writing this now! Her blog is full of all sorts of goodies from funky furniture to beautiful, hand-crafted stationary. When she first told me she had a blog I had no idea I would find all the amazing, inspirational posts that she writes. I met Jessie-Lee down at Lynchburg College while we were both studying graphic design. She is an amazing designer and should definitely post more about her own work (hint hint) because she knows what she is doing and has her own unique style like none I've seen before. She recently got married and did her own wedding invitations which were absolutely stunning and blew away everyone I showed (and you better believe I showed off those puppies). I wish I had some pictures to show you (again, hint hint). I think you all get the picture, now get on over to her blog!

Stephen is another amazing designer that I met while at Lynchburg. His blog, The Blog of Stephen Kissel, is filled with posts about people and projects that are so much fun and beyond creative. His blog is a part of his personal website so while your there be sure to check out his work, he does a lot of custom fonts which are really great and take his designs to the next level. He is also a great illustrator and his characters always make me smile! I find a lot of inspiration from both Stephen's work and the work he posts about.

I can't say enough good things about these people, they have been great friends and colleagues and I can't wait to see what they come up with next!

If your in the discovering mood, here are some other friends of mine who you should check out as well:

Brandon Hunter at (blog) and (portfolio)
Jake Mace at
Katie Scott at
Myles Katherine at

I wish I could write about each one of them but I feel like I've already gone on long enough so I'll save that for another time.

Still searching for the proper send off,

Kim! You are so sweet and far too kind. And allllright I will put up some pics of my invites. I need to get it all out and take the proper shots. Oh and what do you think of... "may x never mark just one spot" or something of that nature?

Yay! I like the line, but for what?
