Sleepy Sundays: Greet

Two more additions for The Holiday Collection this week. I’m not a fan of using fonts in my work, unless I design said fonts myself. These greeting card designs are exceptions. I’m much busier closing out some book cover projects, along with planning a move from my current location. There was a need to push these out fast. The fonts helped save me some much-needed extra time. Hope you enjoy them! Just trying to spread some cheer in these dismal times we are living in.

What do you do to take your mind off the madness?

Have a cheer-filled Sunday!

This piece was created to resemble an old set of homemade decorations we still have in our family today.

Do you have anything that’s stayed in your family for ages?

Have a golden Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Family Tree

Family Tree
This year we put up our first full-fledged tree of our own. (The key word here being own.) Our small family of 3 is growing stronger and fiercely independent. We are doing more together and less with others involved. All of us have grown so much this year. I did a lot of letting go, reflecting, and understanding my place in this world. My other half did some falling down, getting back up and brushing his shoulders off with supreme grace. (This is one of the traits I love about him.) Last, (but most certainly not least) our little one made some serious strides in so many areas. His speech has dramatically improved, and so has his understanding. He continues to be the driving force of inspiration and happiness in my life.

Thank you all for being a part of this journey. Next week, I’ll be posting a “Year End Gallery” as sort of a “best of 2013” featuring some of your favorite art & photography here.

(My mom always loved this song. She’s been on my mind a lot lately – so I thought it would fit perfectly here.)

Hug your family & have a bright Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Festive

Festively
As I decorated yesterday, one couldn’t help but fill up with holiday cheer. Letting go of the bits of life I couldn’t control opened up a new chapter as the month changed.

Welcoming someone you once thought was an enemy back into your life can be incredibly freeing. It has to sound so cheesy. I know that’s what I would think reading that. When the right opportunity comes, though – you really must try it. Forgiveness can bring boundless peace into your life. What better time to do it than the holidays, right?

What gets you into the holiday spirit?

Have a festive Sunday!
