My show at Thanksgiving Point came to a close Saturday evening. I would be lying if I didn’t say I was pretty happy about it. It has been a long month for me. Between taking two trips, working on Merry Poet and deciding I wanted to do a show.. I ended up being exhausted. I’ve never been so happy to see a Monday in all my life.

But hey, I did a show. Did I happen to see you there? I hope so. It was great to meet and greet all the great talent. Do some trading and officially not call myself a new-be to show biz anymore. I hope this is a start to something great.

PSS: Make sure to check out my Shop. I’ve added a few new things.

DESIGN \\ New Calling Means New Print For Sale


I honestly wasn’t trying to avoid my Bishop, or his very persistent Secretary. But somehow I was able to avoid weeks and weeks of phones calls ( I was on vacation, there was general conference and ward conference – so cut me a small break here ) but avoidance did happen. Sunday, however they caught up with me. And apparently just in time to do a quick meet and greet and say “Hey, by the way would you like to be the Young Women Secretary?” I admit, I let out a big sigh of relief. Honestly. It could have been bad folks, I mean really bad. But this, this is totally do-able. In fact, I’m looking up to the challenge. This is a great chance to learn and grow and meet the fantastic leaders and young women in my ward.

So what does this mean? Simple. Let’s sell a print. Let’s sell a Young Women Theme Print. Let’s also sell some more new stuff. Check out my SHOP link or head over to ETSY to order.

Much Love!

It’s Official

I now fit into my goal jean size and I can do two pull ups.

This is Hugh. I might cry.

Probably Not.

I’ll just make some cupcakes instead.

Esty: Slide Side Ways Bag

One of my many faults is the fact that I despise caring a purse. I hate lugging this “thing” around me with all over creation, and further more I find that I never use half of what is in there because it just has become a catch all for just about everything. I am always trying to convince myself that I need to carry a purse and that of course is followed up with “I need to buy a new one”. This is all false assumptions, because the fact is I have purses and I just don’t use them. Either way you look at this situation it’s a no win. So rather than try and figure it out, or even justify spending more money on something I will take the easy road as I so often do and just day dream about the “what if’s”. Currently on this list is a darling bag by made by Slide Side Ways that I would love to stash all my goodies in. I know you didn’t expect it to be any other color than teal, so that comes as no surprise to anyone. I wish I could end this post by saying, “It’s mine” and “No one else can have it” but I can’t and won’t and may just I’ll even mope about for awhile about it.

Side note: Happy New Music Tuesday. Yes NOT Monday, because new music does acutally drop on Tuesday. I’ve been on a Great Northern kick as of late, and it’s looking like that isn’t going to change for awhile.

What Is Success?

I am always on the hunt for knowledge, especially knowledge that can help my business grow and flourish. Speaking of flourish, that is exactly what Stephanie Fizer New E-Course is called. For the past week we have touched on many topics and ideas but there has been one that personally struck a cord in my head, this being the idea of Success and what it means to me. There seems to be a lot of movement around this idea, even Grace Booney from Design Sponge answered the questions of “What’s the best piece of advice you have for a struggling artist?” in her formspring me interview.

My hope is that I can always answer this questions. That I am always pushing myself to different levels of success and fulfillment. That I always aspire to be more.

Like Stephanie Corfee’s beautiful watercolor elegantly states: “Who exactly gets the job of deciding if I’m a success?”.
