Wedding thank you cards I recently created for Catherine and Sean. Such a pretty photo! Loved working on this modern and clean design.

A daily reminder that being perfect doesn’t exist. And even if it did, everyone has their own version of it. Who wants to be perfect anyway? I would rather strive to be amazing. For me, for my son, for my family, and for the special people in my life. And the best recipe for being amazing is being YOU at your best. I’ve always worked hard at being the best me I can be and I will continue to improve and grow and evolve till my day is done. At the least, I expect the same from others. We owe it to ourselves and we owe it to the world. The strength we create together through positivity, kindness, and determination is priceless. But it starts with you. And it starts with me. Each one of us is amazing. We just have to allow ourselves to shine.

I’ve been slowly working on developing a new card series that reflects my love for poetry and it’s been a little challenging. From digging through years of writing to figuring out the best design direction, it’s been an interesting journey. Since it’s quite personal, I feel like I’m sharing a piece of my heart, while trying to create a platform for others to make an intimate connection with each other. It’s sort of the way I felt while I was working on my Reflection Series, but this is deeper.
Being an artist you really need to be brave and just dive in, even though you don’t know how others will react. But I have always felt safe in the creative place I am in while doing the work. As long as I’m being true to myself and creating art, I am exactly where I need to be. I hope to launch this series by spring, but until then I’ll be a busy bee piecing it all together.
I said this to a friend today that is feeling very overwhelmed and stressed. As I wrote it, I repeated it again in my head and thought it was pretty damn clever. I told myself I would take my own advice and remember that we don’t need to be moving so fast all the time. Whether we are running a business, have a family to take care of, or just have a lot going on (or maybe all 3!), it’s important that we slow down and be present in the moments we create and share. Getting lost in the ‘busy’ sucks. We are living our lives day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute…and it all goes by so fast. Too fast. Why not ‘be’ in all the moments? Like I told my friend, breathe and pause when you need to. Our lives are so precious and when we look back on memories, it’s an amazing feeling to be able to say you were truly in them, taking it all in. Because we are all worth it.
