A cure for the Christmas blues…

Advice, Christmas, Comedy, Design Studio, graphic design, LeMonkey House, New Years, Posters

The holiday season is over. While the end of such a crazy time can bring feelings of peace and personal space that have been missing for at least the past three weeks, it can be hard to get back to normal. There is that twinge of sadness when the house becomes empty and all that’s left of presents is the paper they were wrapped in. There are no surprises left to give or receive.

Going from one extreme to another always requires some transitional time. And withdrawal from good hearty food, wine, gifts, family, more wine, can be dangerous when done so abruptly. So don’t let yourself or your loved ones suffer. Ease into it by giving more gifts!

Don’t let the post-holiday blues get you down. Treat – yo – self (or a friend) to something unexpected and fun.

Remember, winter can be an amazing time or it can be as depressing as jumping into a pile of yellow snow. So take it slow and buy stuff.

One the Eve of the great Turkey Day.

What is it about Thanksgiving that makes me giddy with excitement?

No… it’s not just the copious amounts of food and a free ticket to be fat and lazy for a day… though, that’s not too shabby of a deal…

At the risk of sounding cheesy and rehearsed, Thanksgiving is a great day for family.  You know, that group of close family and unhealthily close friends that you are most comfortable with.  The ones that if I decide to wear slippers all day and choose to not do a thing with my hair, I know won’t judge me.  That, above all, is the greatest gift one can be given.  So in preparation of the Day of the Gobbler: I plan on doing an extra workout in the morning, brushing up on my poker skills (yes, that’s how we roll), and making some rockin’ baked mashed potatoes.

Football, cards, excessive amounts of food, fuzzy slippers (the target ones are the best…  L.L. Bean’s got nothing on those bad boys), and my strangely entertaining and wonderful family.  Seriously, what more could one ask for?

Can’t wait.

I hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow and enjoy the slower pace for a day.  Unless you’re in retail, then I’m so sorry.  We’re not Black Friday people… and never could be.  If I walked into one of those places on Friday, I would just be apologizing to all of the workers the whole time and not paying attention to the middle aged women fighting over the last copy of Fifty Shades of Gray.

Cheers, guys!  Here’s a hand turkey…

Happy Anniversary!

Uncategorized

So we just completed a fun little project for some old friends that turned out to be a rather funny story…

About 2 weeks ago, an old friend, Matt, sent us a message through our Etsy shop where he asked about getting a custom designed print to give his wife for their five year anniversary.  Their wedding being a bit blurry by now, it was hard to believe that it had already been five years.   While it was great just to hear from our old friend, we were even more excited to help him with this cool little project as well.  So as we were hashing out what we wanted to use for his gift (being foodies, we decided on the names of the restaurants at which they had memorable meals) – I then got a Facebook message from Amy (Matt’s wife) asking for a custom piece to give Matt for their Anniversary.  My first reaction was similar to that of:  “Oh, s**t, what if they want the same thing… who’s bubble do I have to burst?”  Then, I calmly let her lead the way, which worked out great as she decided to go with one of our vintage book page designs featuring their wedding song – “Happy Everafter in Your Eyes” by Ben Harper – so I was immediately subdued in my freak out and decided this is going to actually work out.

So, to make it even more freaky Friday, they both even went so far as to order their final designs as 18×24 canvases.  Two people couldn’t be any more perfect for eachother… I mean, really… as they say great minds think a like and I know they got a little chuckle when they exchanged gifts realizing that they had essentially thought of the same exact gift (I know this because, as expected, I got an email to let me know how funny it was).  Adorbs.
