Did you know there is such thing as "National Handwriting Day"?! Did you know that it's TOMORROW: 23 January 2019?! To celebrate, my friend Amanda Kammarada started the Handwritten Notes of Kindness last year to share little nuggets of love to those who might need it in the most unexpected way! I joined in last … Continue reading Celebrate handwriting with kindness
Hey all! It's been a while since I did a craft other than something lettering related! And It's been a LONG while since I did something that was also for Christmas! I was home much of the weekend because of the torrential rain that plagued the east coast, but got super antsy on Sunday night … Continue reading Christmas Ribbon Tree
Well... hey. It's been quite some time, hasn't it? Can we just talk about how tough it is to try and juggle the many facets of life? Managing time between my day-job, my side gigs (Etsy and TeePublic) and the general fun of creating--whatever form that may be--has not been easy for me. I know … Continue reading The Ultimate Ink Subscription

Music has been a part of my life since I can remember. … Continue reading Birthday Challenge!
*deep breath* Well, it's happening. I'm doing WORKSHOPS. It makes me laugh a bit, because the idea behind the content came to me in a dream. And when I say a dream, I literally mean that.

Ok, if you know me, you know that this is my FAVORITE season. Though over the past few years it feels like autumns (and even springs) in Maryland keep getting shorter and shorter! We've had a weird summer with some cool fall-like days, so I feel like I was given a small piece of heaven … Continue reading Happy First Day of Fall!
I've posted a few Halloween crafts over the years, like the "BOO!" sign and Mummy wreath, but many of those have stayed home when I moved a few years ago, so it's only fair to make new ones! I went to AC Moore and Michael's a few weeks ago and snagged some little items to use, … Continue reading Halloween Prep
Lettering has become a huge thing over the past few years, have you seen it around? It's been a while since I have done calligraphy, however, got more heavily involved late last year as a mechanism of stress relief! As a lefty, it hasn't been easy! Truly, I don't know that I've crumpled up more … Continue reading Fun with lettering!
This is the first year in a while most schools in Maryland are starting AFTER labor day, which, seems really shocking to me! Happy First Day of school for many of you and your littles! Hope it was grand (for you both)! My niece begins her first day of FOURTH grade today. Fourth. How did this … Continue reading Back to School
Good lord, how long has it been? Three years? Really? Yikes. The world has changed a lot in three years, hasn't it? My world is certainly different. I moved (again). I am a proud cat mom to two of the craziest furballs to ever walk this earth and are currently watching me type this. I … Continue reading Well, hello there!
