Design Meets Craft

After having my Cricut a couple of weeks, I've happily discovered that it's the precise intersection between designing and making. I have an idea, I design it in Illustrator, and I test it with my Cricut. That workflow is very satisfying because I have the confidence that my files will work beautifully for everyone who … Continue reading Design Meets Craft

My Latest Creations

Today, I wanted to show off some of my latest work. Last week I revealed that I'd acquired a Cricut. Here are the images I currently have for sale that I will be testing soon: I tested out some basic cardstock projects. Here's the pumpkin I made: I got some Super 77, Outdoor ModPodge glue/sealer, … Continue reading My Latest Creations

The logo is for a line of ice cream that's erotically themed. "Ice Cream Company" is based on the font used for the Fifty Shades Of Grey. Although I initially was not told … Continue reading Begging For Cream Logo

Back to the Proposal Grind

I know I should be treating freelancing as a second job, working 10-20hrs per week to make ends meet. But I admit I forget about that a lot. It's time once again to make that better. My husband recently fell near his work and has been unable to work regular hours for the past month. … Continue reading Back to the Proposal Grind
