New Bundle: Mexico!

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 05/12/2014 - 10:00

I'm excited this week to be releasing my Mexico Bundle. Over Christmas, Jordan and I went to visit my parents who are living in Monterrey. It was a lovely trip (read more about it here) and I was really excited to make some designs for it because they know about color in Mexico. Everything was bright and fantastic. I hope that's reflected in this bundle.

Hitting the Road + Postcard Giveaway

After several months at home, Jordan and I are preparing for a new adventure, this time by means of our mini van. We will be driving coast to coast, from Oregon to Connecticut, to see my brother-in-law graduate from the Coast Guard Academy. The whole family is then going on a Caribbean cruise, lovingly financed by Jordan's grandma. Then, of course, we have to drive back. So it will be something of an epic undertaking. While I have done road trips in the past, I have not driven from one side of America to the other. I'm ready to pack my bags and go!

Organizing Digital Photos From Multiple Sources

I had a solid photo organizing, editing and uploading system going until last summer when I got my smartphone, and then everything dissolved into chaos. My system only worked when I had photos coming from one source, and the addition of a new stream really threw a wrench into things. Also, the transition from constant traveling to regular life also changes things a bit. I no longer need to constantly be dealing with photos, but that does bring up the question of when to deal with the random photos from life.
