Design, Office Space, and Quilts!

As a busy designer, mom, and wanna-be fashionista, I need a breather! But as they say, "there's no rest for the wicked!" Not sure if I'd completely categorize myself as wicked but I've been working as a graphic designer and social media guru for a wonderful company called Fabric Lovers. They sell lots of cute 100% cotton fabric (check out their Riley Blake collection, my fave) and I've been trying to bring in more work.

Check out my new website! is where my work is now residing (or will after I upload all of it). I now offer web design and creation on top of all the other design work I do - like print graphics, signage, etc. I manage social media sites and have to constantly stay in the know of fads so I read blogs, watch trends... I know right! Lucky!

For the Fabric Lovers company, I'm also crating a quilt! Yay! I get paid to sew something cute! I've been a bit slow but have created video content and will continue to write blog articles on DIY projects for their blog.

I also built this site for The Flourish Center. Still needs tweaking, but we'll get there! Looking for more web work, so if you know anyone, and they mention this blog, they get a discount!!! Yay!

Have I told you that I have an awesome mom? Yes. In order to save a bit of money this summer, we're paying her to watch my daughter. She's been staying with us but will sadly have to go home sometime in August. She's been a great help while I juggle a full-time job, a design business, an Etsy store, and whatever is thrown at me (sometimes literally but that's usually my daughter).

Stay tuned for a peek at my temporary office (and why it's only temporary) as well as decorating it on a budget!
