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
*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. I'm an educator by trade, teaching about traumatic brain injuries to a wide-variety of people, from providers to patients … Continue reading Workshops!
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 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!
If you can remember back a year, I pondered the conversation I would've had with my younger self in the essence of turning a quarter of a century. A month ago I turned the big 2-6. Last year's birthday was really hard for me for a number of reasons I've already discussed. But I have … Continue reading Birthday shenanigans: Sip & Paint
*knock, knock, knock* "Heather?" Yes. I'm alive. Please know I haven't forgotten about you little bloggy blog of mine! It has been quite some time and in between work-outs, trying to keep up with my shop, working and trying to keep my social life at least a little bit afloat, I've spent the remainder of … Continue reading Holy crap, I just sewed a gown!
HAPPY RIVER SONG DAY! Ok, I'm about three days late for posting this and be prepared, it's about to get a tad nerdy up in this joint. River Song is a character played by Alex Kingston on "Doctor Who". Again, if you have never seen "Doctor Who" and are into the nerdy, space travel, british … Continue reading River Song Appreciation Day!
