1 :: The Tudor’s Will Rein – The most exciting news this week is that BOTH my father and my brother will be coming to visit us here in Germany this summer!!!!!! I am so beyond excited!!!!

So lookout Deutschland, the Tudors will rein this summer!

2 :: Design News – I am happy to announce that Kirsten Ashley Photography will be become Kirsten Ashley Photography & Designs throughout the course of the next six months. It seems no matter what I do, design work {paper goods, hand lettering, and graphics} keep popping up in my job projects! I already have had the pleasure of creating a branding identity for several photographers in the Kaiserslautern Area, so it’s high time I moved forward with this side of my business. I will also be offering custom calligraphy, invitations, place cards, and menu’s just to name a few things! Get excited folks, because this means I get to do more to suit YOUR needs!

3 :: Love Me Some Neutrals – I have had some really awesome finds at DSW lately. Something about the neutral pallet is hugely inspiring to me this week.
