As has been the routine lately, this week's Pinterest Find of the Week is a tad behind schedule. Things have been pretty busy at my day job, and I'm simply exhausted by the time I get home. I know, I know- excuses, excuses. Anyway, let's get this thing rolling!
This week, I chose to feature Mary Kate McDevitt, who is an illustrator currently located in Portland, Oregon. She also just so happens to be phenomenally talented at hand-lettering. I've come across
I'll just get this out of the way, and say IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!
Usually, in years past, I haven't gotten too excited about it because it generally ended up being a letdown. This year, however, I took the day off of work (great start with that!), and have made weekend plans with some close friends.
