My New Year's Resolution is....

TO UPDATE THIS BLOG MORE OFTEN!!  There, I said it and put it in writing, so now I have to do it.  Every week, the only item on my to do list that never gets crossed off is "update blog".  Well, this year, I will be crossing off that item more frequently then I have in the past.  I'm not going to go crazy and say I'll do it everyday, but I vow to do it more often.  Who knows, maybe I will get to update this blog everyday.  One of the reasons that this blog doesn't update very often...

Happy Thanksgiving

My customers really are the...

Myy emoji candy bar wrappers have been a huge hit.  I was surprised at the popularity of...

Tiny Little Brooms

This summer I finally got a chance to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando.  I am a big fan of the Harry Potter series, so I was really looking forward to finally seeing Harry Potter's world up close and in person.  It was really fun and I was not disappointed--I'm not going to bore you with my vacation stories.  Instead I'm going to share with you my inspiration for my latest Halloween design.   Whenever I travel, I often find myself in full creative mode.  During all of that downtime, my mind is always...
