The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It’s almost here! Thanksgiving, that is! I told you recently, when I shared Happy Holidays, how much I love this holiday. As I designed for the winter months, I found myself singing carols throughout September and feeling each day like Thanksgiving was just a week away. But now that’s real! I’ll cook for hours, watch […]

Happy Holidays

At this point, if you have a computer or other device with internet access and use any form of social media, it can’t have escaped your notice that people are sensitive. And while that’s ok- I’m very sensitive! – sometimes we, collectively and individually, forget to actually consider the other options before reacting with negativity […]

Boo Jack O Lantern Silhouette Cameo Freebie

Boo Jack O Lantern

I was trying to come up with a cute idea for a jack o lantern this year- something different than the usual fails I subject our poor children to, when I came up with this idea! I love banners, but I’m not afraid to admit I probably can’t carve this into a real pumpkin -_- […]

Cute Ghost Silhouette Cameo Freebie

Cute Ghost with Boo Banner

How cute is this little guy?! Omg. I’m lucky enough to ‘work’ from bed most days, but my son and I were both having a bed-ridden sick day, perched on piles of pillows and watching YouTube when I grabbed Circuit Breaker (that’s what I call my Surface Pro*, it’s a long story) and sketched up […]

Happy Halloween Jack O Lantern

It’s almost here!! With a 9 year old who loves to Trick-or-Treat, I kind of miss out on decorating the outside of our home. I spend the evening out haunting strangers, begging for their candy- I don’t want to mislead other trick or treaters into waiting at our front door for candy that isn’t coming. […]

Hello Halloween Witch

Well hello, Halloween! Today’s freebie is a different style than Hello Halloween Crow (be sure to grab it, too!), this one being oriented a little more toward the kiddos. It also has a sister-file, Witching Out. Like those files, it features my own graphics (as always!) and my handwriting for that personal touch. All downloads […]

Birthday Girl and Cupcake Cuttable

It’s my birthday! I love birthdays, though my own is one of my least favorites. Not because of aging (I don’t let that be a thing for me!), but because the attention is all on me, and I like to give it out rather than rake it in ; )  That makes CAKE one of […]

Birthday Boy

Halloween files will resume shortly, but today is a very special day! Today is my only child’s 9th birthday. His last single-digit birthday. The last year before he becomes a ‘tenager’. If I had emojis set up on my blog, this post would be full of sobbing ones! Haha! Instead I’m honoring this special day […]

Witching Out

Are you guys totally witching out yet? Since I started designing on my Surface Pro* I’ve been trying my best to learn digital calligraphy. I studied calligraphy for a time when I was a kid (around 7th grade) and really enjoyed it. Digital is different, but it’s also fun. I’m staying simple for now, trying […]

Hello Halloween Crow

I’ve come a long way in the last 10 years, but for most of my life I’ve been terrified of animals. All animals. Mice. Squirrels. Puppies. Cats. and definitely  birds. I do blame that last one, in part, on Alfred Hitchcock. One of the worst situations with birds for me was being in a car […]

Spooky Hand Lettered Cut File

Hey, guys! I asked on our Facebook page if you were interested in this design being turned into a cut file, and we got the most interaction I think we ever have on a FB post <3 Being the compulsive people-pleaser that I am, I proudly present you with our latest, Spooky, a hand-lettered/digital-calligraphy cut […]

Hello Harvest

Fall is here, and for me it is the most inspiring time of the year. I’m not sure what it is about looking toward the last 4 months of a 12 month calendar that makes me feel so positive- all of it, I guess! I think every one of my siblings (and me)  (also my […]
