Color – Color – Color…

For me, there’s nothing like color to get my creative juices flowing.  It always has. I grew up in a church filled with gorgeous stained glass windows surrounding you.  They are filled with all kinds of color and form, and told of all the stories of the Bible, and were filled with Christian symbolism.  Depending […]

Yikes – software glitch!!!

AARRGGHHHHH….. Don’t you just love technology. It seems to somehow always catch me at odd times. I just realized that when my web host changed the server that hosts me, my main contact e-mail address all of a sudden became unusable for my contact forms. The web pages have now been corrected, and messages will […]

The design development process is very funny. It puts you in holiday moods at all the wrong times of the year. This weekend I’ve finalized more of my Christmas designs, which will be coming out in the next couple of months. Now that it’s finally getting nice and warm in Richmond, I’m in the mood […]
