Fun freebie: Back to school clip art

Well, it’s back to school season. We still have two weeks before our kids head back, but it seems like facebook and instagram are filled each day with smiling kiddos in new shoes wearing too-big backpacks starting off their new school year. In honor of our kids and teachers and schedules returning and quiet houses (ahhh), […]

How to wear your shirt with a half tuck / jones design company

Doing the half-tuck (how to wear your shirt)

My friend Julie and I have a joke: every time she texts me with a question, the answer appears on the blog a few days later. So either she asks questions that I’m totally thinking about at the same time OR her question spurs on a blog post topic (hint: it’s probably the latter). A few days ago she […]

Inspired by Emeralds

You all know I’m a forever-and-always neutral girl. But mixed in, I usually have a certain color I’m drawn to at the moment. Sometimes it’s blue (usually it’s blue), sometimes mustardy-yellow, once it was orangey/peach. Right now, I’m feeling emerald green.   This deep, pure, bright-ish-but-not-too-bright green feels so fresh and early fall and compliments my […]

Four years ago: blogs are like …

Sometimes I look back at the post archives on the blog and think it’s fun to see what was going on one year, two years, even four years ago to the date. When I came across this post from August 15, 2011, it felt like a good one to bring back for today. We’re all pretty aware […]

DIY Bulletin Board

Slowly but surely, Audrey’s room is coming along. The gallery wall really stepped things up a notch and it got me motivated to add some cuteness to the other walls. When you have one side of the room filled with art, it makes knowing what to do with the other walls a little tricky. Add more […]

Exploring Mt Rainier / jones design company

a day trip to mt rainier

Ryan and I took the boys on a day trip to Mount Rainier this weekend. You know how it is when you live somewhere and take certain places for granted and skip out on doing the ‘touristy’ things because you aren’t a tourist? This was one of those things. But Ryan has summitted the mountain twice […]

coffee chat No. 42

I made up that number. I’m not sure why. If you’re new around here, sometimes I like to do what I call COFFEE CHATS. This is where I just spew all the little stuff out at once – kinda like if we were real life friends sitting around over a cup of coffee and hitting […]

How to curl your hair with a curling wand (how-to video) / jones design company

How to curl your hair with a curling wand

I’ve recently added a new tool to my beauty regimen and like it so much I made you a video for how to use it. This is becoming like a mini series – first I did a video about how to curl your hair to get loose waves, then came a video about my 5 […]

My daily bible reading routine

I haven’t been great at opening my bible these past few years. I’ll just put that out there from the start. The reasons are legit – my kids wake earlier than I do, I’m just so exhausted by the end of the day, I’m not part of a formal bible study so I don’t know […]

How To Create A Gallery Wall

Audrey’s room has been in it’s incomplete state for well over a year. This seems to be a theme in my life – this starting and not finishing projects around the house – and I’m determined to wrap a few up.  I’ve been collecting art for her room and knew a gallery wall was in order. […]

fun freebie / fruit note cards

While cleaning off some files in my computer, I came across these fruit note cards. I designed them months ago – probably more like a year ago – and they sat there in a hidden file, forgotten. Poor cute little fruit note cards. So yesterday I finished them up, formatted the pdf file and today they […]

2015 Summer Reading List / jones design company

summer reading list 2015

Each summer, it seems, I re-acquaint myself with my love of a good novel. As hard as I try to pick up a book in the Christian living genre (you know, those self-help-ish, but not self-help types), I just can’t get through them. Fiction novels have my heart. Over the past several weeks, I’ve devoured […]

it’s a miracle … progress on the kids’ bathroom

Friends. You may remember that I started a mini-makeover on the kids’ bathroom last spring. And then it stalled. For a year. Actually, a little over. But who’s counting. Well you’ll be happy to know that over the past two weekends we’ve made progress. Hallelujah! The funny thing is that it really is not a […]
