Spoonflower Shop NOW OPEN (!) + NEW Navy Vintage Floral Pattern

Happy New Year, my friends! I took a few weeks off of blogging to be present with my family for the holidays. But that doesn’t mean I sat around eating Christmas cookies + twiddling my thumbs. (Okay, maybe the first one, but not the second!) […]

Just before the Thanksgiving holiday break (which, by the way, how was your turkey day?), I booked our tickets for next summer’s big adventure! I know, I know, it hasn’t even hit Christmas yet, and I’m already talking about next summer. Hold onto your Santa […]

Modern Family Crest Inspiration + Design

Before, oh, February of this year, I never once thought about a family crest. I don’t have a large, historic, or proud-of-our-roots family. I can’t spin any (true) tales about naughty great-great-great Aunt Edna or boast about the exploits of One-Eyed Grandpa Harry from the […]

Logo Design for Veteran – Owned Businesses + TWO Special Offers!

Meet Sonny Sonny served his whole career in the Navy and then retired next door to me. He probably wasn’t expecting three loud, obnoxious boys to interrupt the retiree neighbor norm in our ‘hood. Sorry, Sonny. But, Sonny makes some serious noise of his own. […]

Boo! I actually hate being scared, so I’m glad all the gory Halloween decorations are coming down today. I can’t watch scary movies, and I even time my popcorn refills for intense the-bad-guy-is-about-to-get-the-girl scenes.. just.can’t.do.it. So while I can’t get into the blood-guts-gore look, I […]

Pizza Box Art – did you know that’s a thing? I didn’t! Well, not until I volunteered to make some, that is. A local nonprofit hosted a pizza extravaganza and asked artists to donate pizza box art for the purpose of raising funds through sales. […]

Gymnastics T-Shirt for YOUR Athlete’s Biggest Fan

Serendipity. It’s a word, a movie, and a restaurant (among other things). Sassy and sweet, I tasted my first frozen hot chocolate at the Serendipity 3 restaurant in 2001. I went back to New York for seconds in 2002 with my (now) husband only days […]

Travel back in time with me. It’s the year 2000. AOL is still a thing. In fact, it’s THE thing. If you don’t have AOL, you are missing out — because browsing profiles is THE way to find friends because Facebook is definitely not a […]
