ALDER + ENDLESS SUMMER

You might have noticed a small change around here. It seems this space of mine is on a constant ebb and flow. While there is always inspiration and ideas behind this brand, I have often found myself struggling to make my thoughts a reality.

 

I miss this outlet when I am unable to create. Yet when I am able, the abundance of ideas can be overwhelming. As our family makes some big changes, I am determined to give this space more love. The creating and following that has come with this brand is so very near to my heart and not giving it my all has weighed on me. I don’t want that to hold me back. I want to try to give it a bit more of me.

 

So it begins with a small change. For a more in depth explanation of EMILY ALDER you can read my about page or send a little hello and we can chat. For now, ALDER is a name that connects my past and inspires my future. One day I hope to share the whole story here. For now, it’s the start of something new.

 

 

I’ve begun taking on small projects and look forward to growing my portfolio and helping others with their brand identities, home designs and more. Please feel free to look through my portfolio or contact me with any questions you might have.

 

 

As always, thank you for being on this journey with me.

VALENTINE’S BACKGROUND UPDATE

A few years back I created some valentines wallpaper backgrounds, they have been pretty popular so I thought it was time for an update.

I worked up a few designs and was able to use them as cards for the Valentine’s Holiday.

MARCH EDIT

March-Mood-Board on EMILY ALDER

March First has always represented the beginning of Spring for me. It reminds me of afternoons outside, Spring cleaning, Baseball season, and a fresh start.

Spring is going to get my butt in gear. I plan to get the garage in order so I can finally get an office space going. I’d like to get back in the garden and try to sort out our sadly neglected plants, herbs, and flowers. With our severe drought the first thing to suffer was our garden. My hydrangea have long since wilted and their wood isn’t looking good. Our vegetables are nowhere to be seen and our herbs are just hanging on. Hopefully we see a bit more rain, we desperately need it, and with the rain hopefully our natural surroundings with brighten up and flourish. One can hope, right? If you have any tips to share I am slightly desperate 🙂
