Deco prints with Impressed App

April 14, 2015

Impressed App, Print Instagram photos, Office makeover, 2015 calendar, gallery wall

I’ve come to realize that I capture more everyday photos with my camera/Instagram than I do with a regular one (as I’m sure 99% of us do nowadays). But seriously…I really kind of miss those old days when I’d get my instant disposable camera developed and have actual tangible photos to put up everywhere. Enter Impressed App. They turned some of my Instagram photos into these amazing premium matte photo prints that are pretty enough for the gallery wall! Each package also includes some modern washi tape to help you turn your photos into insta-wall art!

Download the >> Impressed App << to your phone and quickly make your favorite Insta-photos into deco prints and/or photo books!

And hurry! Because with every purchase before April 15, Impressed App will include the Lark & Linen FREE DIY Deco kit, which includes full 2015 calendar prints, as well as these “Get Shit Done” and “Boss Lady” motivational prints (my faves!) – all to help give your office a mini-makeover!

Happy Tech // April 2015

Happy tech, wallpaper downloads, free wallpaper, laptop, phone, desktop wallpaper, freebies

A few days late, but Audrey and I are back at it with this month’s Happy Tech freebie wallpaper downloads. How cute is this pastel cacti design that Audrey painted?! I think it’s one of my favorites so far!

A beautiful thing is never perfect.
I think a lot of us creatives strive for perfection – I know I admit to having perfectionist tendencies (which is both frustrating and satisfying at the same time)…but lately I have been embracing the wave of imperfection. More like…embracing organic, fluid life…with all of its ups and downs and curves and bumps and extra 5…10 pounds and hand lettering mistakes and paint spills and missed deadlines and crooked lines and wrinkled and can’t get this color right and slightly off-centered. Point is, a beautiful thing is never perfect.

Oscar Wilde quotes, hand lettering, brush lettering, Friday favorites, inspirational quotes, motivational, calligraphy

Aloha Friday, friends! I admit it’s been awhile since I’ve posted on a Friday…blah!

I wanted to leave you to enjoy this weekend with this quote by Oscar Wilde:
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars”

My daily practice over the past 6 months or so has been to look at every moment in the light rather than the darkness. It’s not the easiest thing to do (man oh man), and it takes constant effort, mindfulness, and presence. But eventually, after practice practice practice, you come to get the hang of it and it slowly becomes a natural thought pattern, it becomes natural to want to center yourself before you react. Sometimes though, gah!! I just want to get super pissed off at things and be down and depressed about situations. But at those moments, I find myself wanting to dig myself out of that hole and let go so much more badly. I’m working on it, day by day. It just feels so much better to feel good about things, rather than bad, you know?

. . .

In other news, I’ll be back here on the blog on Monday (whoa, right?!) to announce some exciting things! I’d love for you to join me!

Enjoy your weekend!
xoxo
