Guess what, shit happens. It’s what you do after that counts.

Approximately mid December the perfect storm hit and my life fell apart. I’m sure, many of you noticed that I disappeared about February. For that, I sincerely apologize.

What Gives?

A very serious relationship of 6 years ended rather abruptly, and I was, as a consequence, forced to move from Canada back to the United States. I was lucky enough to find a full time job with an established company – you might have heard the name Magic Hat Brewing Co. dropped around the Burlington Vermont area once or twice. We’re pretty big, people know us. I was offered a position as a traffic manager, which has nothing to do with cars and trucks, but is more along the lines of creative project management. It’s incredible. I’m extremely grateful to have found a new line of work I engage with and love.

Amidst the hurricane of change I found myself alone, divorcing, with a 7 month old puppy, working 40 hours a week at a full time job, 20 hours a week on my business in a beautiful 3 BR home with a new car and a group of new friends. 2.5 months in I was diagnosed with epstein-barr and on multiple occasions, wound up in my Doctor’s office with debilitating fatigue, swollen liver and swollen spleen. As I begrudgingly gave in to the exhaustion, numerous lengthy conversations cropped up about what was important and unimportant as my health was called onto the stand.

Miss Fix-It.

Being forced down into primitive functioning (this coming from one of the biggest sufferers of FOMO you’ll ever meet) I did my best to look at this as an opportunity to re-evaluate my business purpose, interests and life goals. I’m a completely different person than I was 6 months ago. Parts of me have solidified, others have gone, and my little design business has changed, too. Here are the highlights.


A common theme in my favorite projects were two things: Designing logos and bright colors. So, as un-profound as it seems, I’ve stripped away all of the other services that I’ve offered in the past, from Facebook ad design, PDF design and copywriting to offer a simpler selection of splendid love-dipped goodies.

Logo design. Brand design. Brand strategy. 

That’s it.
