the movie title stills collection

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

The Movie Title Stills Collections is a collection of screenshots of movie titles from feature films over the years—a fabulous resource for type inspiration. And while we are on the movie titles subject, another one of my favorites websites/resources is Art of the Title Sequence, which displays videos and stills of title design from tv and film. Literally hours of inspiration.

the happiness project

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

I just finished reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and loved every single page of it. The book documents Gretchen’s year long experiment to change her life without really changing it. Written with charm and wit, it was very easy to relate to Gretchen’s journey of changing little things to increase her happiness and therefore focusing on the things that really matter. My favorite quote from the book “Flawed can be more perfect than perfection.”

I’m probably not going to start my own happiness project but I have been inspired to make lots of little changes in my life. Hope it can inspire you too!

Buy the book here.

the sarah project: update

Monday, September 13th, 2010

Hi everyone! Just wanted to update you on my whereabouts, I recently decided to quit my day job and pursue freelancing full-time as well as designing and selling my own handmade goodies! Which lucky for you means more blogging and crafts from me! Now for some shameless self-promotion…I am available starting now for any freelance opportunities, especially fancy invitation designs which are my specialty. Check out all my work here.

With that said, I’m sorry to say there will be no more Sarah Project posts since that was done in my office and just won’t feel the same if I doing it alone and at home.
