Smash Book Complete!

I’ve never been good at scrap booking. I rush through it, excited to finish the project. Then, I’m upset that I didn’t spend more time to make the project more personal and detailed. Not this time. I did my own DIY version of a Smash Book (a type of non-scrapbook).

I’ve kept mementos from our trips over the last year and finally got to put them all together with pictures I took during the trips. This Smash Book covers our Ohio, New Jersey, and Chicago trips. I’m super excited about how it turned out.

As I worked on this book over the past weeks, it became an opportunity to not become a photo album of memories, but also a journal of the trip, a place for all the keepsakes I kept, and an opportunity to play with hand drawn type.

Excited for the next trip and more memory book opportunities.

Goodrich Summer Tour

We have been everywhere this summer. Our latest trip was to New Jersey to see my aunt and uncle. We had a great time and they made it a fantastic trip. We ate delicious food, saw some beautiful sights, and enjoyed the Garden State and some respite from the Texas heat.

On our trip, we visited New York for two days as well.

We saw some amazing art at the Museum of Modern Art, enjoyed a long walk through Central Park, and soaked up the architecture and city scape. We walked all over, honestly. My tennis shoes did their duty well, but it was well worth it to see all the random stuff we came across.

We also saw some amazing things in the Museum of Natural History. Nick and I love dinosaurs, and their collection was impressive. Very impressive. I think we walked through it five times. The whole museum was amazing and huge with so much to see.

The last day on our trip, we visited the Martin Guitar factory in Philadelphia and took a tour to see how the guitars are made. These guitars are intense and now I really wish I knew how to play more than just Ode to Joy.
