A few amazing things happened between December & January!  I was so honored when the Editor of Portfolio Magazine approached me for a feature! Check out the full magazine here!  Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company also featured me on their Facebook which was equally honoring and so sweet of them to share my citrus inspired prints (second photo).  Then one final one I found about last night was that one of my favorite sites Inspired By This featured one of my prints on their instagram a few weeks ago!  The beauty of pinterest! (last photo)!  I have to say Thank you so much for all of these people following and supporting my artwork –  it really motivates me to keep charging forward with all my design work!

chicken + dumplings

In food ideas on November 26, 2013 at 2:43 pm

My sister-in-law, Tiffany, gave me this recipe a 4 years ago and I have been cooking it ever since!  It’s perfect for the cooler weather coming up (slowly but surely here in Florida).  I made it last week and ate it 3 days in row – every meal.  It’s that fantastic!  I don’t know the exact details of the recipe so I’m just going to use cute words in lieu of actual measurements …

chicken_dumplings

3 boneless chicken breasts

1 canister of homestyle 8 -10 biscuits

a bunch of flour

one bottle of everglades seasoning

a cup of chicken broth

Feeds an army of 8

Directions:  Pour the everglades all over the chicken in a way that seems like “Oh my God this is way too much”! Boil the chicken for one hour.  While waiting cut the biscuits into little dough squares and flour them down … like go crazy with the flour.  Once the chicken is done cooking take it out of the pan and slice it all up.  You then pour in the chicken broth for a bit more flavor.  Put the dumplings in one by one then throw in the chicken and let it cook for 25 more minutes … Then enjoy! Oh and then i toss in a half a stick of butter – ya know just in case!

I recently deleted my ETSY account with my prints because I am trying to get new product photos, a new website etc.    In the meantime I was browsing ETSY – their product photos are something serious these days!  Check out these amazing products and photography!  Those constellation coasters are just dreamy.

candy crush

In i made this on September 11, 2013 at 1:20 pm

A few months ago I got sucked in to playing candy crush and it kind of consumed my life ( and some of my friend’s lives).  Hanging out at dinner, cocktail hour or a stop light consisted of me sliding in a few more games and not paying attention to pretty much anything, listening to anyone, or looking people in the eyes.  I’m not a gamer  but whatever – I needed something to distract my mind for a few bit.  Anyway, i deleted it … I miss it … and I created this to keep from downloading it again.  so long to crushing’ candy.

wise words of breanna rose

In ideas on September 11, 2013 at 1:13 pm

This is all from a blogger I follow Breanna Rose

After receiving several emails inquiring about blogging platforms, I thought I would create a post for bloggers discussing the subject. While I highly suggest hiring a designer to create your own custom design, I realize that isn’t always in everyone’s budget from the get go, so I’m writing this from the perspective of template usage. The first thing you will need to do is decide which service you’d like to use for publishing. While there are many out there, the two that I always recommend are SquareSpace and WordPress ( self-hosted ). Their ease of use and support are what make them winners in my book, but I’ll dive more into them both below.

While I personally use WordPress, let’s start with SquareSpace ( SS ). Because if I hadn’t already paid for 2 years of hosting, I think I would switch over to SS sooner than later. You see, the thing that has always captured my attention with SS is their beautiful user interface. It’s much easier on the eyes and as a designer, I’ve definitely taken notice. Plus, they have several meticulously well designed templates that you can choose from and customize ( drag + drop style ), all of which do not require any HTML/CSS knowledge. A definite plus for beginners! Ultimately, you would receive a free domain name, an easily editable template, and a very secure website. It’s an all inclusive package that will leave you worry free.
