It’s pretty hard to get in the holiday spirit when you’ve been waiting for spring to arrive and it’s finally here, but I managed to create a pretty nice collection for the annual challenge this year. My focus was texture, patterns, and bold type. I had a lot of fun designing these festive beauties, even though it was a little stressful getting a good amount in. Voting is now open! You can view all my submissions below and if you click on each, it will take you to the rating page. Thank you!
I have been pretty busy lately, between planning my son’s 1st birthday party, work, and submitting designs to the Minted Holiday Challenge, there has almost no time for anything else. But I was able to get 2 submissions into the first greeting card challenge, which is pretty exciting. I wish I could have done more, but I was seriously burned out. Below are the 2 cards I created. Crossing fingers! Enjoy!
The Same Stars
Since the season has changed, it’s all about getting outside and enjoying the beautiful weather. I wanted to share some patio inspiration to help with ideas on how to freshen up and design your outdoor space. This is what I call Modern Zen. Relaxed and comfy, with a focus on geometric shapes and neutral hues. I just love how the soft grays and browns offset the earthy greens. This allows nature to really shine. And the nice pops of yellow aren’t too bright, yet bring a freshness to the overall look. You would definitely find me here everyday.

Seeing Elliot for the first time was such a joy, despite feeling like shit and wanting to throw up, lol. Those chubby cheeks, soft lips, fair skin, dark eyes, and button nose…my boy was here and he was beautiful. And as I countdown to his 1st birthday, I am filled with so much gratitude. The love I have for him is beyond words. Everything I went through was so worth it to have him by my side.
