Calligraphy Christmas Tree

Joy. Peace. Faith. These things are so entwined for me, in my life. Believing. This brings great peace. A serenity like I had never known. And once you have peace, you are free to find joy. Many years ago, an acquaintance of mine expressed surprise to realize that I believed in God. That I believe in Christ. […]

Holly Jolly Java

Deep into the icy cold mornings known as the school year in Northern Utah, we all need something that breaks through the fog. I’m not much of a coffee drinker, I attribute this to my preferred “coffee” being a mocha that is the equivalent of a slice of cake in a cup. Since I can’t […]

Believe in Your Elf

Ok. This is currently my favorite Silhouette design I have ever created. Why? Because it’s just so ME! Everything is sketched or hand-lettered by me. And I’m a proud elf. An empowered elf. One of my favorite movies in the world is Elf. Maybe I’m even a little bit of a Silhouette elf? I mean, I do bring […]

Merry Christmas

It’s finally HEEEERRRREE!! Well sort of! Kind of! Almost! Around this time last year my family of 8 (5 humans, 3 quadrupeds at the time) was living in a hotel. The roof of our home had been damaged in a storm, and we ended up having to empty a couple of rooms and leave for weeks […]

Deck The Halls

Hey hey, crafty people! Today I am sharing a cute, festive design made to match (but not be identical to) Tis the Season to be Jolly. And if you don’t have that one yet, you gotta download it. Or at least check it out, because I know I designed it and all, but I really […]

Christmas Morning Person

I’ve never been a morning person- never in my whole life. I’m a night owl through and through, and though I shy away from using that term in general, my only biological child had picked it up by around 4 and described himself that way. Man, if I thought I was the queen of no […]

Gingerbread House

The first time I remember decorating gingerbread was as an adult. And a mom. It became a favorite tradition for me. I don’t know that the kids were as into it as I wanted them to be. My expectations in a digital age may have been too high. But I’m still enamored with the artistic […]

Tis the Season to be Jolly

Hey, Silhouetters! MERRY CHRISTMAS! Yes! I said it! Thanksgiving has come and gone, and now we can let our inner elves out of the boxes, bags and off the shelves! As much as I love Thanksgiving, designing for Christmas is so much fun. So while others were scouring the shelves for black-Friday finds, I was […]

Snow Globe

As I write this, it’s November 8th in Salt Lake and I am still waiting for the first snow of the season. Impatiently waiting. I don’t know why I love the snow so much. I’m not against cold weather, but man are the icy mornings difficult to get up for! Once the sun is out, and […]

Red Berry Wreath with Gold Bow

Hey, Silhouetters! I am definitely deep into Christmas design mode. But not everything has to have a Santa hat on it, right? At least, that’s what I keep telling myself. I love wreaths, hand-made and store bought, and also digital. They’re versatile, lovely and impactful. So today, I’m sharing one with you <3 If you’re […]

Be Merry

Spread the holiday cheer, Silhouetters! Today’s freebie is similar in style to Happy Holidays, but with a more muted color scheme. Since the file is fully editable, scalable, and recolorable because of its vector format, you can change either to match the color scheme of the other if you need to! I hope you guys […]

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 […]
