I often try to tally what I accomplished at the end of the week, and this week it’s a fascinating list. Because while I finished up some year-long projects, I also have opened up the door to some amazing new projects that will really gain steam in the New Year. Normally December is the time […]

This year is turning into a whirlwind of good things. I can’t even keep them all straight anymore. The only wrench in the works is normally my workload dies down around the Holidays, and I look forward to enjoying the season. Not this year! I think this year I may be buying Christmas gifts at […]

Hello and welcome to your November – how has it been so far? I’m still the busiest of busy bees – but I have to say that at least I’m loving the work I’m doing. It’s not busy work at all, but very fulfilling. There are several things, but I think I’m most exited about […]

This week I began with an hour long meeting on the merits of brightly colored animals versus neutrals, another meeting discussing some top secret new projects that are sooo inspiring, a fever of 101 for 2 days, a new project on Smallful plus a Cricut Design Star entry, prepping for Christmas, and prepping for a photoshoot all […]

It’s one of those weeks where I look around at some of the other blog posts I’m loving and think repeatedly: why didn’t I think of that? Or why didn’t I find that, or why didn’t I get that opportunity? The comparison game – as many bloggers know all too well – can rear it’s […]

I’ve been working in two worlds all week. On the one side it’s business as usual: blog projects, freelance work, Pinterest obsessions. On the other side is a completely new venture that I can’t wait to share with you. I’m fiddling with a new logo, researching website “stuff”, filling a secret Pinterest board with tons […]

Another week has past. I don’t feel like i have much to show for it – and I think that’s just the beginning of how Fall and Winter always feel for me. Between the added school and extra-curriculars schedule, and the weather, things fly by without my knowledge. Somehow in the summer I don’t stress […]

I’m currently sitting in the middle of Northern Wisconsin getting cozy with Fall, the forest, a big bike race called the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, and vegging out with my little family. It’s our annual Fall “vacation”, and we have all these silly little routines that I love to death. From where we eat, to […]

Well, folks, Birdie made it through the first week of school. In one piece, without any major tantrums, or forgotten lunches. And it sounds like she only ran around trying to kiss the boys twice. I guess that’s an acceptable amount in her eyes, but I’m not sure the boys would agree. I feel like I […]

School starts next week, and my little baby will officially be a big kid attending Kindergarten. In so many ways I am so not ready. But the universe has decided to throw me a couple of curve balls that are ensuring that I will find a way to be ready. As one opportunity ends, a […]

Sometimes something happens and your whole view of your little world shifts: you realize how lucky you really are, in comparison to all the crap that happens out there. I’m ending this week in a bittersweet but grateful mood. I’m happy for my little family, my little career, and the sunshine afternoons with the sweet […]

Parents of 5 year olds, I’m at my wit’s end. My usually confidence, ebullient, social little girl is suddenly suffering from the worst case of separation anxiety. She claims she wants to spend all of her time with me (which can’t possibly be true) and spent the first part of dance camp today (at her favorite […]

What a strange week it’s been.  I spent a large chunk of it trying to create the perfect photoshoot filled with cherries, lemonade, Indian colors, and French rustic touches. It was a blast. I’ll tell you more about that some other day. Plus,I  finished up some logo sketches for a new client, and drew aardvarks […]

Summer vacation can certainly take its toll, can’t it? Routines for the kiddo are hard to come by, and if you work at home like I do, I’m missing the routines (and work time) as much as she is! The bright spot this week was her drawing sumer camp at a local kids art studio: […]

It had turned into one of those days: too long, too tired, with a too tired little girl fighting through my blinding headache. Then I took the time to gather up links for this post and found myself inspired and calmed. I guess that’s the reason I blog, in a nutshell. Here’s to a calmer weekend […]
