Hi loves! How are you and how are things on your end? Thank you for being so understanding with the lack of posts here lately. It’s been busy in my little corner but wanted to pop in to say hello.
Lots of new exciting projects on the horizon including a hotel project, redesigning and launching one of my favorite client’s brands, and a new concept my incredible partners and I are set to launch in New Orleans this fall! It’s a solid summer of nonstop work and I can’t wait to share with y’all how they develop.
I also finally had time to put together a project board to keep everything organized. Though I’m the last person to DIY (if you look closely, you’ll see why), I refuse to pay $250+ for a memo board. To create this board, I purchased an MDV foam board from Home Depot and three yards of linen fabric. I sprayed the foam board with an adhesive and meticulously flattened the fabric on the board, then went to town with a staple gun on the backside making sure the fabric was as tight as possible. Love this board so much – it helps me visualize my projects and share design work with clients. And because it’s not cluttered with inspirational pictures, keeps me focused on projects I currently have at hand.

We haven’t necessarily started nesting yet but have started rearranging the apartment and putting things into storage to make room for Baby Collins. I just love leaning on my mommy and mommy-to-be friends and seeing Josh beam with excitement. I’m the last person who should or would dole out baby advice (which is why Upperlyne & Co. won’t be a mommy blog :P) but I’ll try my best to share some of the progress to keep you in the loop! So far, the first trimester and learning how to dress have proven to be the most difficult. Ugh! Thankfully, I’m feeling much better now that I’m in my fifth month and stop caring what I look like. Nowadays, it’s all about running shorts and giant t-shirts!
Other than that, preparing for a week away in LA to enjoy some California weather with my black sheep!
