Happy Holidays

It has been a rough ‘Autumn’ in Salt Lake. So far this year we’ve experienced our second coldest October on record, heavy snow storms, thick fog… . Trick or Treating was confusing- some of us burst into Christmas carols when people opened their doors (me. It was me.). In our particular neighborhood we saw daytime […]

Hoodie Weather

I’m going to tell you a secret. It’s January when I’m writing this 🙉 But I wear my hoodies in all but the hottest of weather- and even then I keep one handy just in case it gets ‘cold’ at night. And then I’m waiting all Summer for the hoodie days to come again! That might […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hug in a Mug

Hot chocolate! Mugs! Red! Twinkle lights! It’s December, and I love it <3 Do I love everything?! I wanted to say something like, ‘December is one of my favorite months!’ which would include October and September, then also February, maybe November… ! haha. I like being alive and experiencing everything. I love being inspired. I […]

Warm Winter Wishes

Brrrr! It’s cold! I look forward to this time every year, and yet I still shiver away. Some things can’t be helped, I guess! Every year I get talked into going out for Black Friday deals and steals, while not really having anything in particular that I’m looking for. The only reason I get up […]

Christmas Deer Banner

It is so cute. Ok ok. I searched high and low for reflective gold cardstock. After weeks of looking I was able to find packs at Michaels that had some gold sheets in them- 5 or so in a variety pack. I asked multiple employees if there were any packs that were ONLY gold paper, but they […]

Christmas Tree Slide Togethers

Ok, ok, ok, hear me out, guys. I know it’s not Christmas yet. I even know Thanksgiving is on its way- Thanksgiving is great! I loved it more than Christmas as a kid because there was no pressure or stress to validate people in their gifting choices, instead everyone was together to eat, play games […]

Pumpkin Pie Canvas

I love to incorporate the visual of fruits into dessert illustrations to really add to the cuteness and take it to a different level. My first freebie in this style was, I think, Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice. I also have a couple of premium designs in my Etsy shop: Carrot Cake Cupcake and Strawberry […]
