Blind Letterpress

Blind letterpress via seejaneblogSo… you may have noticed there’s a new look here at See Jane Blog. It’s been a work in progress over the past six months. I’ve been working tightly on the design and programming with a group out of India. I did a soft launch last week without announcing the new branding to hopefully work out the kinks before anyone started finding them for me.

However, it’s now time that I’m asking for your help! As you click around – please let me know via email or a comment here what is not working? There are still a lot of lay-out changes to take place in the next couple of weeks and I’m adding a few more details, it all takes time. But, for the most part – the new site is up and running!

You will notice – with the new site is a new shop! Over the years I have enjoyed offering printable designs for free, but now they are one dollar. The day has come that I am attempting to make a small income for the time I invest here, and I hope you will each accept that logic without any hard feelings. Also, for future little retreats – you will purchase tickets in my shop!

With a new look came new business cards! I handed these out last week at Alt Summit and loved watching peoples reactions when I handed them what appeared to be a blank white card. I absolutely love the minimalistic blind letterpress on one side with my information on the other. I worked on the design with Stephanie Ford of Simply Radiant, and the cards were printed locally by Paper Bandit Press. They both did a phenomenal job.

HIVE connected HUB via seejaneblog
Have you been asking yourself, “what is Hive?” What is the buzz all about??? I’m here to tell you –

Hive is a new technology-driven company that by using their products you can make your home a smart home that everyone wants and anyone can afford. Complete security, automation, and whole home audio experience.

The team behind Hive has been working for years to launch their ideas, and TODAY their kickstarter launched!

It’s very exciting.

Hive connected HUB product via seejaneblog
Hive works wherever you live – in a small downtown apartment or a large country manor. It’s designed to completely simplify your connection to your home and protect everyone, and everything, inside it.

The automation allows you to easily control your lights, locks, electronics, appliances and other connected devices from anywhere. (I LOVE these type of options available at my fingertips!!!)

You can have true peace of mind knowing what is happening at your home, even when you are far away. And, you can fill your home with music and entertainment with the revolutionary wireless smart home audio solution.

What I like best about the Hive products is that if you move – they all go with you! Ideal for college students, if you are renting your home, and more!

HIVE Alt summit mini party

Tokyo dream event for HIVE via seejaneblogI attended Alt Summit last week, and while I taught a round table about how to make videos for instagram, I also helped plan an event that turned out to be soooooo fun!!! This mini party was for the sponsor, “Hive,” and the theme was “Tokyo dream.” This theme turned out to be one of my all-time favorites to work with! And, being one of the four hosts for Hive was the best part! It was great working with the other three bloggers – If you are curious what this company, “HIVE” is about – I’m thrilled to invite you to be a part of it —

A portrait of my children (and puppy), once a week, every week, in 2015.

Kiana: Had “Preference” on Saturday. This is a girls choice semi-formal in Utah. She had five couples in her group – all good friends, masquerade was the theme. They went to breakfast and ice skating on her day date. Then I took their pictures at our house, the group had dinner at Tepanyaki’s, went to the dance, and went to her friend Tatum’s house afterwards for S’mores and a movie.

Myla: Preparing an egg for her puppy. One at breakfast. One at dinner time.

KJ: He took a four hour test on Saturday for an honors program next year in junior high. When I picked him up afterwards and asked, “How was the test?” He replied, “In the science section, there was a question: What is the outer shell of a nuclear micro-organism? WHAT IS THAT?” He was dying laughing.

Sela: I helped host a Japanese themed event this past week, and we had a motherload of extra accessories from styling outfits. I brought the bag of items home for her (mostly from Claire’s boutique) – she grabbed it, ran to her room, dumped everything out on her bed and told me, “This is all going to look so good with my street style outfits!!!” ha!

Wellesley Baloo: We worked on her fielding skills this past week. She does best with grounders.

A portrait of my children (and puppy), once a week, every week, in 2015.

Kiana: She is on her first official high school weekend trip with friends this weekend!!! She borrowed her dad’s truck to drive her friends and herself to southern Utah. Before she left I warned her about the overly zealous highway patrol that monitor I-15 between Northern and Southern Utah. Regardless of the warning, she got her first speeding ticket on the way to St. George on Friday. Live and Learn.

Myla: She’s currently playing indoor soccer, taking indoor golf lessons, and training indoors for tennis.  Thank goodness the temperatures were in the low fifties today and she was able to do something active – OUTDOORS!!!

KJ: He’s always speaking in techy terms… He’ll say things like, “I’m the new KJ 11.0″, “I just had an update” — so we now relate such phrases to peoples birthdays. I just had my 39.0 update, and KJ is launching his update in April to the 12.0. *we’re nerds*

Sela: Red lipstick phase. She really loves lipstick.

Wellesley Baloo: It took a LOT of puppy treats to get her to stay on that longboard. She does NOT like it! But we are hoping she’ll learn to like it and learn to hop on the board with Myla all the time!

All pictures by me, Jane Rhodes.
