Poetry for Your Personal Apocalypse
- Published on Monday, 01 April 2013
I recently had the privilege of working with Mary, writer at MissDirt, on her newest book, Poetry for Your Personal Apocalypse. She calls it, “a love letter to anyone who feels like their world is ending right now.”
I designed two covers for her to choose from and formatted the poems inside. If any of you have ever...

It’s been quiet around here on my blog, but it’s not because I’ve been slacking. I’ve been rearranging this site, as well as setting up a brand new one for my husband. His new site is TheImaginaryPlayground.com And if that’s not enough, I’ve actually been doing a lot of crafty projects too. T...

My sister and her boyfriend are throwing a Mardi Gras party again this year, and she and I made the invitations. Last year we made this mask card for the Mardi Gras party invitations. This year we were inspired by the traditional hurricane drink.
I’m excited for the party, especially the yummy food. My sister makes the most...
New Look: Recover Throw Pillows
- Published on Wednesday, 18 January 2012
I had these great orange suede pillows on my couch. They were just the right color and a perfect size. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize what a pain it is to keep suede clean, especially in my high-traffic living room. Rather than getting rid of the two orange pillows, I decided to do a quick sewing project and recover them.
Casino Night Costume

Some wonderful friends always host a themed New Year’s Eve party. This year, it was Casino Night. So, what to wear? A Casino Night costume, of course!
Turns out I had this old sweater buried in the second bedroom closet. It’s not something I wear anymore, but it’s sparkly!
I took a few decks of cards and glued them...
2012: No Resolutions, Just Intentions
- Published on Thursday, 05 January 2012
I’ve decided to toss the idea of resolutions this year. Every time I make a resolution, I stick with it for a month or two before getting distracted or just giving up. This leads to frustration and anger with myself. What good does that bring?! So I’m done with resolutions and moving to be more gentle with myself by se...
My First Craft Show Experience
- Published on Wednesday, 28 December 2011
About a week ago, I sold at my first ever craft show. It was a great experience and I’m so glad I did it. I didn’t make a profit, but it was fun. I wanted to share some of my observations as a first timer…
First of all, it really wore me out! When I was done, I was exhausted. I think I was more keyed up than I...
‘Tis the Season to Reuse Holiday Cards!
- Published on Thursday, 22 December 2011
Some probably think it’s old-fashioned, but I love sending out Christmas cards. It makes me happy to put stamps and stickers on the envelopes and send holiday cheer around to family and friends. On the flip side, I love receiving holiday cards! I’m lucky to get a nice stack in the mail every year.
So… what to do...
