I’ve been mentioning the Fun A Day exhibit opening on Saturday. Now’s the time to figure out a ride, clear your afternoon and plan on coming! I’ll be there with 31 new ink drawings.
And a special release — The work above is a colored version of one of the drawings I […]
New card up in my etsy shop! There will be dancing.
I LOVE to dance.. and if I wasn’t a graphic designer, I’d probably be a backup dancer. Another lifetime.

Unfortunately, no scale can measure your love.
(Inside greeting: No scale can measure.)
Order your Valentine’s Day cards today to make sure to get them by the 14th!
I recently was contacted by a bride who wanted to use my You Made My Night Thank You cards as her wedding thank you’s. She had a Dr. Who and Vincent Van Gogh Starry Night -themed wedding and said they would be perfect!
Oh 2014. I feel like my whole January has been a big battle against the flu – first my husband, then I had it for a good week each. I’m happy to announce we are flu-free! and happily back to life and work.
In conclusion, I’m extra happy for health this year. […]
I love to make resolutions. I make a long list of things to do, people and landmarks to see this year, things I want to accomplish, and of course exercise I’d like to do..
This year, I’m making a QUIT list. I have too much on my plate, need to make room […]
was the snowman party card! It’s also one of my best-selling holiday cards this year overall.. second to the NYC holiday card.
Second best-seller at the holiday fair was my fireflies card.. which is funny because these are the 2 cards I put in […]
They’re here! Now you can quit some things.. because I have cards for that. I think quitting something makes huge amounts of space in your life for other things. That thing you want to quit probably comes with a lot of emotional weight, possibly taxing stress to your body and may be […]
I’m a little anxious.. since I moved out of the city, I’ve lost access to my beloved Tekserve. So my computer is commuting to the city for (hopefully only) 2 days for an upgrade and checkup.
I will have internet access, but unfortunately, no design tools! Oh […]
Had a great, busy weekend at the Chappaqua Holiday Fair! What was the best-seller at a holiday fair? Surprisingly not the holiday cards.. but maybe it’s still too early. This cat lover gift box I put together for the fair was the best-selling item! It has 4 of my most popular […]
With all this nice weather we’ve been having in the Hudson Valley, it’s hard to think of snowmen already.. but I’m busy getting ready for the holidays. I have a holiday fair on Saturday – the Chappaqua Craft Fair – in Chappaqua, NY, right across from the Chappaqua Train Station. Come […]
Oh New York, New York. Love you in all seasons. Beautiful during Christmas time with the tree, the Empire State all lit up, holiday events and shopping, and snow that melts in 2 seconds on those busy streets.
Celebrate the holidays by […]
Congrats! We’ve made it to Friday. This is a soon-to-be card! One of my hand lettered designs.

These are the favorites from the Pumpkin Festival on Sunday!
Ever since I started offering 6 for $20, I’ve been noticing people picking the same group of cards. They choose a Storybook one, a Starry animal, a Cloudy one and then some birthday or love ones. The […]
So.. no pressure.. but I put some holiday cards up in the shop. If you’re an early bird when it comes to Christmas, go nuts. Please use code EARLYBIRD for 10% off through November 1!
I have a lot of snowmen this year, some merry patterns and a couple hand lettered cards. […]
Oh my goodness, the rain coming down (on Monday) in the Hudson Valley… Reminds me that I have to put up a blog post so everyone can hope for good weather on Sunday. I’ll be doing another fair – the Pumpkin Festival in Beacon, NY. Mark your calendar, put on a phone alert, […]
Spent some restocking time with Kristy today at her store Clay, Wood & Cotton. It’s such a proud moment to see my cards on the racks — and especially nice to see her run out of them! New Rings (bottom right) sold […]
