  I don't know about you, but come wintertime I'm in the mood to make snowflakes. Lucky for me, this year I had three little helpers to join in the fun. I helped them fold. They drew a design. I tweaked the design and cut it out. The best part

I was browsing Etsy a while ago, looking for a birthday present for my brother and came across a poster of New York being attacked by Star Wars ships. It was really cool and I thought "I could do this!" I knew my brother would prefer the Chicago skyline though.

An Owl Invasion + Free Owl Craft

By | October 1st, 2014|design process, Freebies|0 Comments

  Last year I designed some owls. These owls to be exact: I didn't love all of them, but it was good practice. I picked my favorite and cleaned him up in Illustrator. You might remember my post about them last year. They looked pretty good, but I wasn't sure

Pillow Talk Infographic

By | June 2nd, 2014|design process, Favorites, Freebies, Projects|0 Comments

  I've been wanting for a little while now to try my hand at an infographic. I really like the visual display of information that an infographic can give. Plus, I love to see how various designers choose to display their information. My biggest stumbling block was finding some data

I've shown you some of the projects I've been working on in other posts. I've also been doing a bit of web design. I didn't think I'd like working with the back end of Wordpress and all of the coding that goes along with web design, but as it turns

A big project that I've been working on and a part of is the Will Dance For Kids Project dance competition called Will Dance For Food. I was a little daunted at first when I got the list of what I was expected to do. In fact, I was a

Lately I've been designing/creating some fun little clip art animals. (Well, there's a Leprechaun too. So I guess they're not all animals.) I've been playing around with colors and shapes to add a little pizzazz. And let's not forget the eyelashes. Each animal has a male and a female version

Two New Friends!

By | November 13th, 2013|design process|1 Comment

About a year ago I decided that I needed to have some owls in my portfolio. There might have been another reason as well, but I honestly can't remember what it was. I sketched out a couple, or twelve ideas. I then asked some friends and family to vote on

Designing DiaryDad: The Joy of a Job Well Done

By | July 17th, 2013|design process, WordPress|0 Comments

With the slider up and working all I had left to do was work with the widgets. Some work better than others, but that's something we can figure out. It was such a relief and joy to hand over the blog to my brother and say "It's all yours!" Well,
