Survey for Modern Meow Designs

Hello my beautiful readers!

Today I decided to switch things up and ask you guys a design survey. Yesterday and this morning I have been focusing on creating a business card for myself. It has been a long two days trying to create something that I would approve of.

But since this project is too personal I’m going to need your help chosing a design. Each one is slightly different so be sure to take a good look at each of them.

I appreciated your time.

What is today…?

Today is my amazing friends birthday!

So I decided on his birthday that I would make him his gift. I plan on printing it out and having it framed. I picked a photo of his girlfriend and him dressed up as The Incredibles.

I thought it suited the occasion perfectly because both of them are my personal super heroes. They can make anyone smile or die from laughing. Both are EXTREMELY caring and very talented. My friend Javier is going to film school while Brittany is striving to be a dentist.

She just recently came back from spending two weeks in Thailand so I know I can’t wait to catch up.

I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did to make it.Javier_22 (1)

Bareburger Yelp Elite Event

Happy hump day everyone!

Yesterday I got to accompany my boyfriend to one of his Yelp Elite event.

This event was anything but ordinary. They offered us a complete meal for free, so who are we to say no. To start us off they gave us their Crispy Brussels Sprouts, which was beyond delicious. It was so good that I didn’t stop to take any photos.

After that they came over and dropped off some of their fries, onion rings and their special sauces. I highly recommend if you decide to eat their that you order a side of fries.  Personally I hate onions, I love them for favor but can’t get over their texture. But if you want to be crazy like me, you should also share some onion rings. I liked the breading they used to fry the onions. I felt like it really masked not only the favor of the onions but the texture as well.

I decided to try their Country Fair burger with my first drink being a strawberry lemonade. The country fair burger is made out of bison ground meat, aged cheddar, dill pickles, red onion, tomatoes, green leaf, mayo, and in brioche bun. The lemonade was okay, I like Hot Dog on a Stick lemonade better. As for the burger it was nothing amazing. The aged cheddar really took away from the burger completely.  My bison patty was pretty tasty, I kind of like that there was still some pink to it. Also I wanted to note that if you get weird with undercooked burgers, you probably should skip this place.

As for my boyfriend, he tried the Buckaroo burger which included beef, aged cheddar, brisket, wild mushrooms, smoke sauce and brioche bun. He also thought that his cheese and sauce overpowered the burger. What I loved was his Bourbon Smash. I usually can’t drink alcohol but I hate the strong bitter taste but this drink was crafted beautifully. All I tasted was the fruity grapefruit and I was in summer heaven. I loved it so much that I ordered that as my second free drink. My boyfriend was about to do the same when he was told that they sold out of that drink.

Once we were done we waited on our ice cream cookie sandwich to arrive. It was so soft and paired well with the ice cream. I loved that they have some chocolate sauce around the plate (perfect for dipping).

The best thing about that day were the free T-Shirts and $15 dollar gift card they gave us. I really had an awesome time and was fun taking to the two college girls that were assigned to our table. I know that I’m excited to go out and sport my new shirt!

Love,

Erika

Feeling Proud of Myself

Today I decided to share a project with you.

But before I do, I should probably mention the mental breakdown that I had to go through to get here.

So as you guys might remember I was going to make a cat calendar. As I was completing each month I found myself unhappy with each one. With a deadline I found myself stressed out and unhappy with the final product.  I started to hate drawing and wanted to quit. I started to doubt myself and fell into the pit of pity.

My boyfriend gave me many motivational speeches that day. He was trying to push me to keep my creative fire going. But I honestly felt so disappointed in myself and even my skills that nothing could change my mind.

The next day I really thought about what my boyfriend told me. So I make a fun project for myself. Once it started I couldn’t stop. I found myself as close to my laptop screen clicking away. I took a break and worked on my website and logo too. (I hope you guys liked it)

I’m still not fully done with it but I just got too excited and couldn’t wait to show you. So here you go 😀
