Design and Consulting for ABLE

Earlier this year, I started working with ABLE, a new client and lifestyle company committed to helping people through the benefits of nutritional ketosis. I worked with them to provide design and consulting to help launch their new products and showcase their brand. I was thrilled to work with this startup company that grew from the vision of three friends, one of whom I have known since high school.

I really enjoyed working on a variety of pieces and providing input on various levels, such as:

Refining their new logo
Box kit packaging labels
Welcome kit letter
Ketosis brochure
Coupon card
Facebook ad
Water bottle branding
Supplement packaging concepts
T-shirt consulting
Web design consulting

Graphic design and packaging have been my primary focus for over a decade, but I also have experience with marketing and unique applications. I love working with new clients, especially wonderful ones like the ABLE team. 

We also got to collaborate with another friend of mine and talented photographer, Brette-Ashley, to capture their product photos and head shots. It's so great when I get to work with friends who also run their own business.

Another Baby Boy!

We recently found out that we're going to have another boy! We're very excited! Marshall will have a little brother to play with and I will officially be a mom of boys (plural). We are working on coming up with names, which is quite challenging. However, you'll have to wait until the baby is born to learn what it is! Gotta have some surprise, right? 

We can't wait to meet you, sweet little boy!

Potter County 2017

We visited the new cabin on our family's land in Potter County, PA. It's tucked away in the middle of the mountains, with dirt trails and wildlife. A 4-wheeling paradise. Marshall (and Andrew) had an absolute blast, riding and enjoying the outdoors. The best part was getting to see our family and just spending a long weekend together. We all drove from 4 different states. We had food, games, and lots of laughs.

There's no wifi, and no cell reception unless you go to the top of the hill. It was actually refreshing to be without the use of my phone, social media, and TV. I almost didn't know what to do with myself! And even though my seasonal allergies got the best of me (the worst ever!!) it was still good to be surrounded by family and the beauty of nature. I could have done without the ragweed and pollen though! 

We happened to be there on our 12th wedding anniversary and went to a local farm for some of the most delicious ice cream. Until next time, mountains.

Summertime with Family

My mom visited us from Arizona for a couple weeks and it was so nice being with her. It's always hard to see her go back! Marshall got to spend lots of time with his Nana, which made my heart happy. 

We got to see old friends and extended family, too. I wish summer never had to end! 

I made sure that Mom and I cooked some of my favorite dishes. And no visit would be complete without a trip to our favorite ice cream spot. 

We celebrated the 4th of July together and just caught up on family time. 

I hope you're all enjoying some summertime family fun, too!
