Jingle all the Way

This is it, Silhouetters. This is my last Christmas design of the year. Inside, I’m a tears-streaming-down-my-cheeks-crying emoji. I don’t want it to be over. I love the winter, I love Christmas, I love twinkly lights, I love cookies and wrapping paper and all the things that will have to go away again soon. It […]

We Whisk You a Merry Christmas

Hey, Creative Friends! It’s time for a crossover. Who doesn’t love a crossover, right? For this one, I’m combining my love of baking designs with my obvious-over-the-top-everyones-had-enough-already love of Christmas designs. And everyone’s happy, right? Of course we are. With the Santa cap for the whisk and the always-jolly holly, how can we help it? If you’re […]

Tinsel and Lights

Did you do Christmas church performances as a kid? If so, the inspiration behind this file may come to mind instantly. If not, it’s just a fun file for the holiday! I drew it up because I couldn’t shake Happy Birthday Jesus from my head. Happy birthday, Jesus I’m so glad it’s Christmas All the tinsel […]

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 […]
