Bird Box Review – Don’t watch if you’re a Realist

I loved Bird Box.It's a fantastic story told from the point of view of a woman who isn't perfect and has a lot of social/bonding problems - I can relate, lady.

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.

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
