Updated and better than ever.

How do I decide if an old card needs an updated look? Here's a behind the scenes on the process cards go through to ensure they fit into the Odd Daughter brand. 

Gift Guide - Holiday 2017

Here are a few of my personal favorite gift items! They're all created/designed by small businesses and artists who I know personally and love, as well as some that I admire from afar. 

Odd Daughter in Sunset Magazine!

I was pretty shocked when a writer from Sunset Magazine contacted me about doing a little feature...

San Diego magazine - map + illustrations

In October, I had the awesome opportunity of working on a map for San Diego magazine. It was used in the November issue which was all about TACOS. 



2015 reflections

This year has been one of ups and downs, as most are. In May, I left my full-time day job to focus on Odd Daughter!! While this was a really exciting decision and I've never doubted that it was the right one, it has also been truly difficult.



ROAD TRIP / portland

My sister and I are in the midst of a pretty awesome road trip (#hartsistersbetrippin if you're curious). Our first main stop was Portland  >> the city where I eat like every meal is my last.

celebrating love + friendship

I've never really been into Valentine's Day (except when I was a kid, because, CANDY). But I don't love red roses or cheesy cards... and the holiday feels so forced. Recently, however, I've been reminded that it doesn't HAVE to be that way.

Summer Dayzzz.

I honestly have no idea where this summer went. I realize there's nothing interesting about saying "ahh, I've been SO BUSY". But that's the real deal, folks.
