Welcome 2015 and HAPPY NEW YEAR! I adore New Year’s for the simple reason that it is so full of possibility! It’s the perfect time to reflect- take stock and decide what you’d like to fine tune, delete or embrace. I am working on my post for my 2015 “one little word” – and it really didn’t fall together for me until I finished up this new design- (that will make sense to you once you see my word!)  I’ll be sharing it with you all here in a day or so- and would love to hear if you have chosen a “little word” as well. 

I came across a quote last week about writing the best story we can on the 365 pages we have each year… it’s a new year- and we are blessed with these blank pages that can hold unlimited possibilities! That sentiment spilled onto my drawing board this week- and I designed UNWRITTEN-a collection named after (& embracing the spirit of) one of my favorite songs, “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingflield.

I love the neutral tones and little pops of vibrant color in this design- black, white, kraft and gold foil- and really had fun designing the word art. I don’t know about you – but for me- reading a positive set of words can really put me in a great frame of mind! 










what joy will you create today?

The Joy of being a Football Mom!

Truth told- I have always loved Football. I am a native New Yorker- but for a little while, my family transplanted to Irving Texas.  It was in the late 70’s, and I was in love with Danny White, the Quarterback. Then it was Steve Young- and most recently, Brett Farve. Tim Tebow is also a […]

Do you BEE-LEAF in the Magic of Fall?

Hi guys! September is here and I have to admit- it’s the start of my very favorite time of the year- AUTUMN!  So, even though the pool is still open, and the AC is humming, I am dreaming of all things apple and pumpkin and boots and sweaters and *sigh, Fall! That feeling worked its way onto my drawing […]
