I wrote my first post on this blog four years ago today. There were sometimes months I went without blogging but sure enough, once I set a goal to blog 100 posts in 100 days last year, I found my voice took shape here. So today, I’m sharing my first ever blog post from September […]

Do you remember about seven years ago, there was a trend where people would gather all the swag they had collected from working at their company for […]
Gift giving has always been my love language. Unfortunately, I’ve never been someone who has thousands at her disposal at any given moment so over the years I’ve found I’ve mastered the art of the $10 gift. Or $20 if I really love you. But mostly, my gifts are extremely thoughtful and also kind of […]

It’s my first screen share video Photoshop tutorial! Do you use clipping masks in Photoshop? It’s so much fun and I use it all the time when creating templates and having extra fun with text. Totally aware of the nerd points I earned with that last sentence! Here it is, friend, from me to you!
A few months ago, I spent a solid two weeks doing a website redesign and girl, my Google Analytics Stats had never been higher!! I was bringing in the traffic! Unfortunately, the clicks that were being counted were my own as I was refreshing my site every hour to check out the new changes that […]
I’ve known members of Lori’s family for years and years but this was the first time her and I got to officially hang out and it was the best! I mean… I knew it would be because her family is amazing so why wouldn’t she be too? It just makes sense. 😛 So today’s spotlight […]
I’ve been getting this question more and more and I definitely have answers that I want to share! First, I should probably let you know something that not many people know about me and that is that I have a really overactive imagination. My mind goes a mile a minute and I can’t slow it […]

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
