Tonight’s nightmarish addition is going to be part of my horror design collection for this year. The look was inspired by a nightmare had about being trapped under ice.

Quite the chilling recent memory.

Sleepy Sundays: Peach Clouds

Life has dealt an interesting last few weeks to say the least. When you’re used to having doctor’s appointments every weekend for about a month and a half, it can be difficult to adjust back to schedule. One of the things I’ve always liked with being in business for yourself and “being your own boss” so to speak, is–I get to make my own hours. However, I noticed in recent weeks I rarely take advantage of this occupation’s gem.

This Sunday, though, I’m taking full advantage of this perk, as I have a lot coming up here to plan for. We currently have a Back to School sale running all month of September that we’re thinking of extending until the end of November. Along with that, we’re mapping out the lineup for 31Nightmares this year in October, as well as some other events.

This wall art design was inspired by a scene I witnessed a few weeks ago upon leaving the hospital as August drew to a close.

Hope you are all having an amazing weekend! Much more to come.

Have a dreamy Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Sweet Air

The visuals of summer have been catching my eyes and ending up in my designs lately. This piece (inspired by brightly-colored summer flowers) is no different. With all of the madness going on in the world right now, I’ve been losing sleep. Outside of my normal work, I’m trying to work on ways to spread some positive change. There’s progress but, clearly, a long way to go. This world needs love. I couldn’t help but bury myself in the projects on my desk.

Sometimes the outside world can leave us feeling drained. I’m grateful that this work I’ve chosen seems to replenish my energy and renew me both mentally and physically (and sometimes even spiritually!) Art remains one of my strongest therapeutic tools. I hope this little summer scene brings you some peace. We’ve all had a rough go lately, and we deserve it.

What is it that “gives you life”?

Have a rejuvenating Sunday!
