Gathering and creating some sweet holidays cards and gifts to send out to all the clients this year that have entrusted me with their company’s campaigns, brands, social media sites, and  all that jazz!  Some have been with me from the beginning  when I was just learning and have continued to stick by me!

One of my favorite sayings!  I found out about Ross while I was interning at Mama’s Sauce.  Some amazing artists go through there – I was lucky enough to be introduced to them!  I was just browsing Ross Moody’s quirky website and found these free downloads for your desktop!  He’s got quite an eye for typography!  See some of his other downloads right here.

(you can also buy this as a poster on his website! do it, do it!)

Christmas is always a little awkward when you’re older.  What do you ask for that you can’t already buy for yourself? I threw together this little gift guide for the techie in your life!  I just recently purchased that FEED bag and I am rather excited about carrying it around as my new computer bag –   It’s for a good cause too.

To ensure we will be the jolliest buncha a-holes this side of the nut house this holiday season- I bring you…


what you’ll need:
– 1 orange sliced into wedges
– 1 bottle of champagne
– 1 oz of st. germain
– 1 oz of honey syrup :

what to do:
– first you need to make the aforementioned honey syrup.
– heat 1 cup honey and 1 cup water in a pan, stirring until it simmers then remove from heat. once cooled you can pour it into a cute jam jar or glass bottle and store in the fridge.
– add 1 oz of the cooled honey syrup to your favorite cocktail glass
– also add the st. germain
– squeeze one of the orange wedges into the mixture and plop the wedge into the glass
– top off the glass with champagne, give it a quick stir and you’re all set.

The creative process is amazing and quite a struggle at the same time but luckily today was one of those situations where ideas were flowing!  Here’s a new print – going up on my ETSY site soon as well as in Decorative Arts and the second print is for a bar in Vero Beach!
