IT’S AUGUST! SO HERE’S A CHERRY DESKTOP & MOBILE WALLPAPER (Free Download!)
Oh August, you hot little son-of-a-gun. I am both excited and sad that you’re here. I’ve always had a fickle relationship with the month, really. I think it started when I was a kid – the back-to-school stuff comes out in full force in August and you’d panic about how little of your precious […]

Hello hello! It’s Monday (again, how did this happen?) and I’m back to the ‘ole blog. My husband and I decided to do a impromptu little getaway this weekend, so we made the short trek down to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and then on to Philadelphia.

WEEKLY WISHES #4
Back to Monday again! How was everyone’s Halloween? I had a great weekend celebrating all things spooky and scary at my house with my hubs and some friends. We carved pumpkins, roasted seeds, and ooh’d and ahh’d over all the little trick-or-treaters that came to the door. Halloween isn’t huge in our neighborhood but I […]

LEARNING TO SAY NO – Advice for People Pleasers
When I first started out freelancing and working for myself, I was determined that I would follow every single opportunity that was given to me. Small jobs, pro bono work, stuff I was nervous to take on for one reason or another – I said yes to all of it. And while this “say YES” […]

WEEKLY WISHES #2
Hello hello! Well, we’re back to Monday folks. Sad but true. Even though my job is not the traditional 9-5, M-F, I still definitely feel Mondays. And also that bit of dread you feel on Sunday evenings after an especially cozy and relaxing weekend. The weather turned seriously cold this weekend in upstate NY. It […]

THE MOST HELPFUL THING ON YOUR TO DO LIST
One of the best things (or maybe the best thing) about working for yourself is setting your own schedule. It is tremendously liberating having a schedule that I dictate and have complete control over. I just love that moment in the morning – I’m barely just awake, eyes still closed, and I do a quick […]

Hey guys! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent the entire weekend packing cards for my little print shop and enjoying as much of the warm weather as I could. We had the perrrr-fect weather on Sunday. Sunny, warm, a little breeze – delightful. I tried to soak up as much as I […]

CONNECTING THE DOTS: Ways to encourage creativity when I’m feeling stuck
It’s a perfect mix of exhilaration and trepidation that a lot of what I do for a living relies on my ability to be creative. Everything from sketching a new greeting card design to coming up with an advertising budget for a client requires that I am able to think creatively to do the job […]

Does Work/Life Balance Actually Exist?
Spoiler alert: it doesn’t. There! I just saved you from needless reading. But seriously, a lot of discussion around freelancing alludes to the idea of ditching the 9-5, and the enormous amount of freedom that being your own boss can give to you. Take back your life! Get out of the grind! Stop living for […]

Ah, here it is! Palmer Street Press’ inaugural post. (Are you allowed to use that phrase for things definitely not presidential in nature? Question for the ages.) Let me tell you a bit about why this little blog sprang up and what’s in store. I’m Gillian. (Soft G, like giraffe.) I’m a full-time designer and […]
