Lay down excuses and give your best anyway. An echo I need to hear often.

Handlettering. And a lovely palette.

As mentioned, here is your free download from the recent Advent Calendar post. Thanks so much to Annie for graciously sharing her artwork with us!

I hope your holiday week is not too crazy—I feel like I can hardly keep up (and I'm sure I have less going on than most people!). Off to finish wrapping gifts and Christmas baking!

I just saw this amazing pin by Ez and couldn't resist! I love it SO MUCH. It's always the little things that brighten my day.

Just a quick note for you before your day ends! The type is so pretty I want to eat it.

Hey there! How super sweet is this type illustration?

Sidenote: I am slacking on yesterdays post for reasons of honor and duty...such as viciously preparing to welcome my husband home and wrapping up some work projects and fulfilling commitments of days gone by. Luckily my 5am-10pm days are over, oi!

Great advice from one of my favorite tv shows.

Today needs a little whimsy and soft blue. Thanks to Emily Ley for just that. And to boot, she even made you a FREE printable for your nursery or office wall. Simply lovely.

please forgive me

Sometimes life gets crazy and we gotta back up and take it...

Please forgive me and my absence lately. I've got a few large meals on my plate, so I want to take pressure off myself by taking a blogging break for a few weeks. (I say that as if last week wasn't already a break!) Once I've chomped a few bites, I'll be back at full speed showcasing all these fun projects!

Don't forget you make my heart happy...and I will miss you.
