2013 calendar

I created this calendar as a Christmas present for my Grandma this year. She has been an important part of my life since I was a child, but our relationship has really grown and strengthened over the last year.

She has been in recovery for over 23 years, being a newbie to recovery myself, these principles hit home with me from the first time I heard them. They aren't just words with defiinitions, they are a way of life. By practicing these principles in your daily life, you are bound to live a happier more fulfilled life.

I love you, Grandma. Your support and love has never waivered and I can not thank you enough for being by my side on this journey. xoxo



mykel + kristen's wedding gift

As you can imagine, the University and Fighting Irish is a source of great pride for Notre Dame grads. The ability to get married at the Basilica is something most alumni want to experience {or so I've heard}. My brother, Jamie, and Mykel went to Notre Dame and lived together in Dillon Hall.

My mom commissioned me to create a gift for the Kramer's to bring with her to South Bend.  To capture the Notre Dame-ness of the couple in this print, I changed the hearts in the date to clover leafs - a symbol closely associated with the University.


brad + casie's wedding gift

I was delighted to be invited to Brad + Casie's wedding last Friday at the McNamara Alumni Center on the University of Minnesota campus.

While I was looking for a wedding gift for these two very special people in my life, a picture from my 28th birthday party in April kept popping into my head.

It was pouring rain as we left the bar and Brad + Casie ran back to their car sans jackets or umbrellas. They took the CUTEST self photo and posted it to Instagram. To me, this picture captured their love and personalities perfectly.

I wanted to find a way to include this picture in their wedding gift. As I was looking for the photo on Facebook, I came across so many other wonderful pictures of these two and decided immediately to put together a custom framed poster.


Brad + Casie: I love you both so much and was honored to be a part of your special day. I can't wait to see what's in store for you and watch your love continue to grow. xoxo
