Part of my 2018 New Years resolutions, was to write 12 short stories. I found a website rightly named www.12shortstories.com in which they challenge exactly that. Once a month, a new prompt and word count requirement is given. I have written a handful of short stories off and on throughout my years, but have not […]

National Library Shelfie Day

In: Sundries + Misc, Writing + Bookish

There is practically a day for everything… and today is no less to that rule. It is National Library Shelfie Day. I am not a bibliophile, but what selective books I do have – I love. This is my favorite section of the book shelf… sci-fi and dystopian junkie… what can I say? 😉 … […]

Kansas City Library Wedding Reception

In: City Skyline Series, Weddings, Writing + Bookish

These custom menus, table and seating/escort cards were created for a wedding reception being held in a library in Kansas City.

Using the couples duogram at the top, the Kansas City skyline adorns the bottom of the menus, […]

Christmas Collage

In: Holidays, Paper Art + Collage, Writing + Bookish

When it comes to designing new items for the shop involving the City Skyline Series and the Construction Series, not a problem! In fact, it’s easy to just steam-roll through my thoughts and ideas and get them out there for everyone to enjoy! The only downside is… it’s hard to remember that it is healthy […]

Why Write Letters?

In: Snail Mail + Postage, Writing + Bookish

In an age when the art of writing seems to lose a little more vitality everyday, I often hear the question, “Why write letters?”… usually followed by, “I can just send an email, it’s faster.”, or, “No one ever writes back.” It isn’t always about what is the fastest, or whether you even get a […]
