My Blog Postings


I just made an Etsy purchase. I vowed that until I regularly updated MY shop and made a little income there, I was going to take a hiatus from shopping on Etsy. But I HAD to have this:

For anyone who doesn't know, the eponymous Zucchini (yeah, as in Zucchini & Co.) is a beautiful miniature black and tan doxie like this dapper fella. She's more like the crown-wearing sort (spoiled girl!). And, Wednesday is her adoption anniversary!

And, now I have a new favorite seller.



I am very lucky.

Here just a couple of the reasons:
I have a good job, a job that also gives me off on snowy days.
I have a talented and creative boyfriend whom I love very much.
I have a silly and sleepy kitten whom I also love very much.
I have a great apartment, where you can walk places in the snow.

On that note, this  > is what it's like out today.

This   > is what I am doing today.

And listing these   >...


I don't know whether it's the grayness of winter or what but creatively, I'm not doing so hot these days. 

I came across Michelle Ward surfing around... and she's a life coach. I always thought everyone could use a life coach. Particularly when I was having my quarter-life crisis... and now here I am again at 30 thinking this is a very good idea.

Her blog has lots of great info, and she totally seems like someone you'd want to hang out with. I totally recommend Motivation Mondays. So, give her a read and let me know what you come up with.

Are you motivated yet??


These are the projects I've got going on right now...

tulip wedding invites... Yankee-themed wedding invites...
a comic-book for a super-cute couple...
and a website/t-shirt design for a band...


When my grandma passed away, I received this small envelope full of photos. I have just now begun to scan them in... for fear that I will do something dumb like misplace them forever.
