Hello February!

Happy February! I read the other day that February is the halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, so this month's wallpaper is dedicated to the contemplation of the seeds we will plant this Spring season, metaphorically and physically. I love that idea, and I wanted to create an illustration that symbolized new growth, even in the last winter months. I'm very much looking forward to the warmer weather! Now, on to the Wallpaper! Click on the graphic above to download the free wallpaper. And feel free to share your space with me on Instagram! Cheers, Enjoy, and scroll down to see some detail + behind the scenes shots.

Welcome December!

Happy December! We had a blast over Thanksgiving and the Holiday Weekend! Thank you so so much for Shopping Small. When you Shop Small, you aren't giving a CEO their 2nd vacation home, you're helping a family buy groceries, you're helping a business owner save to invest in new products, and (in my case) helping a fur-momma pay for a needed surgery for her puppy, Patty (who is recovering like a champ!). Your support really, really makes a difference, and I want to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who supported Small Businesses last weekend. We love you, you are literally making our dreams come true. If that's not good karma, I don't know what is.Now, on to the...

Happy November!

Happy November! I hope everyone had a great Halloween and did something fun and/or spooky. For this month's Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper, I really wanted a constant reminder of gratitude. The holidays are on their way, and being busy with a to-do list sometimes makes us forget to stop, take a breath, and be thankful. So, if I can be honest, I did this wallpaper really for me. For me to remember, when I turn my computer on to start the work day, to be extra grateful for the customers, and clients, and interactions I have that make my business successful. And that starts with you! I hope this month brings you peacefulness, clarity, and renewed relationships with those you love....

October is my jam!

Happy October! I myself like Pumpkin, but I'll be the first to admit that we all need to settle down a little. I don't need Pumpkin-flavored jello or cereal or toilet paper, or whatever. Just let me make a pie, put on my sweaters (Atlanta is still 80+ degrees, WTH), and watch horror movies. But if Pumpkin is your jam, you do you - live your life, I support that! Pumpkin was the inspiration for this month's Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper, so I hope you enjoy!   Click the image above to download the October Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper, and go on with your bad pumpkin-loving (or hating, it's cool) self. Feel free to give me a virtual high-five by tagging me on...
