Writing Elsewhere: Modern Curb Appeal Mockup

Hey there! I’m over at Remodelaholic again today with another curb appeal mockup. This time I whipped up my ultra modern take on this dated facade. I think it’s my favorite one yet! You won’t believe the change.

Home Exterior Before
If you’re visiting me from Remodelaholic, WELCOME!
I’ve have had quite a few requests from readers interested in home mockups of their own, and I promise I’m working on some very exciting changes that will allow me to take on more of your requests in the near future. So stay tuned!! I hope you’ll join me on Facebook or Instagram to be the first to know the latest about what’s going on around here.

In the meantime, I’m taking a slight break from my regular blogging schedule so that I can focus on said changes, but I’ll be back soon with a big announcement and some newly expanded offerings that I’m super exited about.

For now though, if you’d like your home to be considered for a makeover, hop on over to my post on Remodelaholic to learn how to submit your photos. Each month, I pick one reader submitted photo to work a little photoshop magic makeover on… And it could be you!

Happy Monday, friends!

Lettering: The Dangers of Assuming

Hey friends! Today is an exciting day for me, because my latest hand lettered illustration just launched over at Cotton Bureau. It has been a goal of mine to have a piece accepted to this selective online shop for a while now, and I finally put myself out there and submitted! Yay effort! Yay overcoming anxieties! Yay seeing my work on fun stuff!

The Dangers of Assuming by Designing Dawn

Anyway, I need a minimum of 12 orders to start production on these babies, and they’re only available for two weeks from today (through March 29), so if you like the design and want to purchase a t-shirt, CLICK HERE to help a girl out and get one of your very own. They come in a few different colors and styles for both men and women.

The Dangers of Assuming

As for the art itself, I hand lettered this quote because it was one I heard ALL THE TIME growing up. My dad was a teacher at my high school, and was famous (infamous?) for preaching these words of wisdom to all his students. Trust me when I say that during his 30+ years of teaching, you most certainly did not graduate from DOHS without hearing this at least once.

Dad with his twins -

The man with all the great life advice.

Here are a few images of this piece along the way:

Thanks for all the support, friends! If you’re thinking of purchasing, remember that March 29th is the last day to get an order in! Fingers crossed that these sell enough to make it to production, because I’d love to be able to give one to my Dad as a thank you for the inspiration and all the advice over the years. Plus I really want that blue one for myself. haha ;)
