And the birthday celebration continues! Sitting at the airport ready to get away for a kid-free long weekend with the husband & slow down after what’s felt like a nonstop, dizzying few weeks. Feeling thankful for all the wonderful people in my life right now, who especially over this last week, have helped brighten my life - whether by surprise birthday flowers / coffee / chocolate ☕️ or sending birthday wishes & texts & calls (that I still need to respond to!) or making sacrifices in order to ensure Hunter is taken care of while we take a few calming days away. ❤️❤️❤️ Not sure what I did to deserve this tribe of incredible humans, but I am forever grateful.
Throwing it back to 2014! Pulled this logo from our archives to make a quick update to it for @amanda_dumouchelle. Always fun to see some of our work from years ago & that it’s been a consistent, ongoing piece of her brand all this time 🌿 #blushbrands
Hand-drawn illustration we created as a brand mark for a client project we are working on! Playful, clean, fresh, & a little whimsical. 🌿 #blushbrands
We shared this on our stories a couple weeks ago when the site launched, but had to take a minute to officially post about this one for the lovely @merrie.and.bright! Merrie is an England-based calligraphy artist & we have been swooning from day one over her brand. We wanted to create a website that would be the perfect balance of fine art & white space, beautiful details, & gorgeous imagery & still find ourselves visiting her site just for fun because it turned out so pretty 🌿 let us know what you think of this one! #blushbrands
Good morning! In a team meeting yesterday, we made the realization that we’ve been almost completely absent from Instagram all month 😳😅 We are still alive, I promise!! February has been a pretty nonstop busy month with some beautiful projects we’ll be sharing soon, so we’ve had our noses to the grindstone but have really missed connecting with all of you on here. As frustrating a platform as it can sometimes be, this unintended hiatus has made me grateful for the way it does allow us to connect with & be inspired by other women, creatives, & small business owners all over the world. So for that, I’m feeling thankful. 💛
We are hiring!! 🎉 We recently said goodbye to our beautiful, amazing assistant Elise after two years with Blush as she has been continuing to build her incredible brand @saltldsretreat. As such, we are currently looking for a fabulous new addition to our team as an Administrative Assistant. We are in search of someone who is personable, down to earth, & professional, who is able to effectively communicate with clients around the world as well as help us stay organized & efficient as a team. You must be technologically-savvy, a quick learner, & someone who is motivated to contribute & be a part of our mission of empowering entrepreneurs. This is a long-term, part-time position with flexible (primarily work-from-home) hours but local to Utah is preferred as our team is super close-knit.

Been taking a little (unintentional) hiatus from Instagram lately but couldn’t wait to share this gorgeous mood board we sent off to a client today! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of our favorite phases of the project is right at the start, when we spend so much time getting to know a client, their vision, their style preferences, & their ideal clientele. Then, we pull inspiration together in the form of a mood board like this that allows us to really set a strong foundation for the project from the outset & lead us toward cohesive design decisions moving forward. Sometimes these boards are perfect right away - & other times they require some tweaking & perfecting - but when they are finished, they serve as an effective tool to get everyone on the same page with a brand’s overall vibe & personality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This brand is focused around romantic, bespoke, timeless fine art imagery & is often inspired by European culture. It is geared to attract well-educated, well-traveled women who place great value on aesthetics, appreciating fine details & art in all forms. We wanted to bring this feel in through beautiful details including textured linens, raw silk ribbon in varied hues, a golden toned vintage ring box, & the way movement & light can be captured through a photograph. What do you guys think? 🌾 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blushbrands
2017 was such an incredible year - one full of so many ups & so many downs. Not only did we have the opportunity to connect with so many inspiring women, but we met our annual revenue goal, expanded our team internally (love all of you more than I can even explain!!!), & implemented new processes to help us work more effectively, tap into more creative energy than ever before, & provide a better overall client experience from start to finish. For me personally, this meant almost NO all-nighters (a weekly occurrence in 2015 & 2016), a clearer mind with less stress or anxiety, a happier, calmer sense of self, & healthier relationships with my family & husband. This year, in so many ways, changed my life. I visited Spain, Canada, & Disneyland (!!) for the first time & had the opportunity to go back to Ireland for the second time. I watched as Brandon not only excelled as a husband (seriously you guys, I married up) & father, but he continually exceeded his career goals time & time again. Sweet Hunter started learning to count, recites his ABCs, sings Jingle Bells nonstop, & even added a few Spanish words to his vocabulary. Heartbreak came this year in the form of continued infertility struggles & a defeating miscarriage that tested us in so many ways. Following this dark period, we received the happiest news of the entire year, just a couple months later that we were pregnant again (after 8 pregnancy tests & an ultrasound, I finally believed it was real!) - Now we are 16+ weeks so far with this little baby girl & going strong! We love her so so so so much already. 2017 was a good one, but I am so thrilled that 2018 is almost here! If you need me, I’ll be popping sparkling cider instead of champagne (🤰🏻), reviewing this past year’s accomplishments & failures, & planning out all that we want for this upcoming year. Cheers!! 🥂 #happynewyear
