Hey friends! Long time no see on the ol' blog! If you hadn't heard, the end of 2016 was quite busy for the Ogden fam - we made the big move from TX > NC! We arrived here in the beginning of January, so I took those first few weeks to settle in, unpack (although there are still unpacked boxes in our guest room oooops), and catch up on the projects that had to take a pause during the long drive up!

I'm honestly a little freaked out that the first month of the year flew by so quickly - I am still writing 2016 on brain hasn't caught up with the times! Nevertheless, I am excited for what 2017 will bring! On the business side, I have decided to narrow my services to only wedding papers and calligraphy! And these monthly calendars of course ;) I cannot wait to focus on the work I love the most and give my brides an even more amazing experience with their wedding papers! I also hope to start offering online video tutorials to designers and creatives that are looking to expand their knowledge in the computer-y side of this invitation game! I am mostly a self taught graphic designer (besides 1 elective course I took in college, which I actually learned SO much of the ground work), so I can totally relate to those who are trying to wing it. Because I am still winging it :) But I'd love to share the knowledge I've learned so far!

Anywho, thats the quick recap on lets get to the real reason you came all the way to my blog! I am so sorry that your techs were left barren for the month of January, but as promised - monthly calendars are BACK! IF SKIMMING, DO READ THIS :) >>> While I do plan on posting the calendars to my blog every month like I have been doing, I also plan to move them over to arrive directly in your inbox!

I can't help but love when the first of a month falls on a Friday - it's like the stars are all aligned and we get to celebrate so many things at once. This one is an extra special case, because not only is it the weekend - its a LONG weekend! How are you guys celebrating? However you are, I hope that you can enjoy time with loved ones, sunshine, fireworks, and of course...watermelon! Speaking of watermelon.... hehe, smooth transition, eh? 

First of the month means another calendar for my peeps. This month I teamed up with Rachel Hudson from Kylee Ann Photography to bring you a very appropriate July photography to stare at during those long days at work :) She really hit the nail on the head, and I will not be complaining about seeing this pretty image every day! Thanks, Rachel!

Have a fun, relaxing, memorable holiday weekend - and don't forget the most important "F" to be celebrating - our F R E E D O M! Happy 4th of July! (download links for backgrounds below)
