The holiday rush is finally over. I have never worked so hard in my entire life. I have to say I am not sure I would recommend doing two large holiday shows back to back, especially if you have a full time job. Mainly cuz sleep deprivation does strange things to your mind and body. 

Now it is time to rest, spend a little time with the family, and try to return to a normal sleeping/eating schedule.  I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday.

Time for Giving

About  2 years ago I lost a close friend of mine to leukamia lymphoma. At the time, myself and other people didn't think it was too serious. We knew our friend Sean was having a tough battle, but being the amazing person he was, we thought he would beat it. So to wake up one morning and find out he was gone was quite a shock, especially considering he was so young.

I have many regrets about my friend passing away, many of them being that I never had a chance to see him before he passed on. His death was a very big shock and a reminder that life can come and go too quickly and too early.

I was reminded of this again this morning when I came across The Fiercegrrl Fund. Nicole is a 27- year old craftster who has recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 ovarian cancer. She can no longer work and must now pay for all of her expenses out of pocket.  You can  help this fantastic lady out by purchasing one of the adorable ornaments that are for sale on the website. And why not go a step further and repost this story on YOUR BLOG? Help a lady out. Spread some cheer and REPOST. Plus the ornaments are all super cute! Lookie lookie.

Pretty Birdie

These lovely cards now live in a wonderful shop in Brooklyn called Homebody Boutique. The owner, Kate, asked me to whip up a few custom cards of her store logo a few weeks ago. I don't know why, but I had a really hard time trying to find the right color combos but I think they ended up pretty darn cute!
You can also pick up my "Awesome" cards as well as few others at her shop now. So send your Brooklynite friends over to buy one!
