I don’t often post personal stuff but when it hits close to home I feel that I must share with whoever is listening…I am copying and pasting these words straight from my sister in law’s blog !  The Butlers, My Brother and Sister in law’s great friends,  were more than generous with our  family when my Brother was going through cancer  and I feel extremely compelled to help them in any way I can…

From the blog ” Oh Happy Day!”…

This is Waylon.  He’s an incredibly smart baby, listens intently to everything you say, and adores Mickey Mouse. He’s the son of our good friends, Will and Lauren Butler.  Waylon was recently diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 1, a genetic disease for which there is no cure.  Obviously, their world has been turned upside down. There is currently a fundraising effort going on to help with some of their growing medical bills. Sam and I are selling raffle tickets for a weekend Hog Hunt out at Barthle Brothers Ranch. Tickets are $20 each or 8 for $100. If you donate $100 you’ll also get a handmade pie courtesy of Tripson Pie Co.

( speaking the truth here Kristen’s pies are like… angelic and amazing )

GO GATORS!

oh happy day

In i made this on September 25, 2012 at 9:10 am

I’ve got two logos to work on this week and one is for my sister-in-law and her bloggity blog.   The first logo I EVER made was for Kristen and her Pie Company.  It looked like a  neon waffle house sign.  Luckily I progressed with my art and luckily she continued to believe in my work, per usual – so here we are!   She’s always full of cute ideas for me and luckily we have similar color palettes in mind most of the time.  Can’t wait to show you the final product in a few weeks!

slowly but surely

In decorative arts, family, Waldo's Garden, work on June 5, 2012 at 7:42 pm

After Waldo’s Garden was featured on 100 layer cake we got tons of e-mails and calls inquiring about this new/old untouched venue.  Then Decorative Arts was honored with the Retail Star of 2012 via Home Accents… it was apparent that, although different businesses, they both had an “in” to a bigger audience.  A fan base that goes past the tri-county area.  So it has been my mission to work my little digits off getting e-mails to magazine prospects (online & published!), e-mailing everybody involved, tweeting to online editors, sitting in Barnes & Noble collecting new magazines, researching tips to woo editors, bugging my friends that have interned at magazines, etc.

The answer is always “No” until you try!

Oh!  And if you (yes, you!) have any tips or advice regarding my venture it would be much appreciated
