Mother/Daughter Father’s Day birdhouse

I missed mother’s day at the school with Gigi – work steam rolled over me and I missed it. Luckily, an amazing friend (Thanks C!!) jumped in and made a beautiful teapot with her. I’m sure I will carry that guilt (and many other nuggets) with me to the grave. That said, I wasn’t going […]

Here Comes the Stain Again

*insert the Eurythmics here singing a hilarious parody about staining my decks* It’s staining season! Time to bust out the pressure washer and stain brush! Time and chores stop for no man. I just finished pressure washing the front of my house this weekend AND cleaning the planters gutters out. I had been putting it off, since I […]

My Life – No Quarter Given

“Ten years from now, make sure you can say that you chose your life, you didn’t settle for it.” Mandy Hale, The Single Woman I am not settling – this crazy, awesome, sometimes super challenging life, is AMAZING. I saw a video the other day where the guy was talking about the bittersweet melancholy that […]

Doors, the meaning of life, and Sex in a Symbol

I’ve had a lot of doors change in the last year. If you’ve been to my house in the past you may have experienced my broken patio door – it is now fixed. Thanks to Mr J’s incredible ability to bend metal to his will and his inability to put up with something that works […]

Workin’, and loving it!

I’m really lucky. I love what I do – graphic design and web development is fun and challenging and I meet some pretty awesome people. Even if only via Skype. I love the connection, getting to know their business and coming up with fun ways to get their product/service into their ideal client’s hands. Good times […]

Renovated the blog!

And I hung up a fancy new logo to boot. Of course I should be, oh I don’t know, getting the damn drywall out of my foyer. But this was fun! And way less dusty, and it only requires one set of hands.  What do you think of the new digs? I am totally going […]

My closet version 2.0

I loooooove shoes. And cute clothes. And hats. And wigs. Really, I love all things girly fashion. So my closet is kind of a big deal for me. One of the first projects I did was based on a clip I saw on a tv show… It was a while ago, but it was a […]

Getting home, the new year, and lists

I arrived home to a parcel from my baby brother (Nickle) and his beautiful bride-to-be (Megs) – another amazing present from them! We’d already gotten movie passes (we totally ran out and saw Star Wars before the kids left for the holiday) and Exploding Kittens (the card game), so this package was totally unexpected, and […]
