We just finished another sold out session of Letters & Colors. I’m still chuckling because the last thing I ever thought of when I started working with Abbey Sy is a collab.  We were always busy going about our deadlines together but we had very different styles and palettes.

Abbey Sy Googly Gooeys ArtworksI just finished turning over a good chunk of my latest projects so it’s just really nice to sit back, blog & pour my thoughts on this blog.  I really miss doing this!

Looking back though, I believe I learned a lot about lay-outs, discovered more colors and learned to chase deadlines more efficiently and also acknowledging and forgiving myself for my limitations thanks to le officemate Abbehh.
