March 2020 Desktop Wallpaper

Happy March, everyone! Even though the weather has been like riding a rollercoaster lately, on warmer days I've really been enjoying my afternoon walks with Patty, seeing all of the new life and greenery peeking out, ready for Spring. I take a lot of comfort in the Cycles of Nature - they are a beautiful demonstration in balance. Here is a wonderful quote I read earlier today that I wanted to share with you: 
 

Nature does not hurry;
yet everything is accomplished.
- Lao Tzu

January 2020 Desktop Wallpaper

Happy January - it's a Shiny New Decade! What are your plans for 2020? I hope you have something wonderful in store :) As for me, my resolutions include giving myself more White Space, healthier work-life boundaries (hard for creatives!), and a healthier lifestyle with more gym visits and activity that I ENJOY (that one is predictable, I know, but it's true!). 

For me, this year is about keeping it simple, so with that in mind, I created this January 2020 Desktop Calendar, and focused on the hand-lettering, with just a few little embellishments.

November 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

I trust everyone had a wonderful Halloween! We got totally mobbed by cute kids Trick or Treating last night, Patty dressed up as a Banana Split, and Daniel won a costume contest for his rendition of Garfield, complete with giant paper mache head. All in all, it was a spooky success. I also talked about my haunted apartment in my Halloween Animated Instagram Post.

For this month, I wanted to capture the feeling of coziness (SAT Word Bonus Points: "hygge", pronounced "hue-guh"), and do something a little more fun than just your typical (but lovely) fall leaves. I hope you like it! I love how the calendar fits in the camping mug, lol.

Thank you so much and high fives if you already knew how to pronounce "hygge". High fives if you learned something! High fives all around!

October 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper: A Special Tribute

October 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper: A Special Tribute

It's finally October - or as I like to call it, "the most wonderful time of the year". For this month, I want to create something a little more involved and special than my usual freebies. So I illustrated a tribute to the legendary true-crime comedy podcast, My Favorite Murder. Now, while I am a huge advocate for getting out into nature, one of the things I love about this podcast is that Karen + Georgia (the hosts) are huge advocates for women's safety, awareness and defense. So get out there (especially in the beautiful Fall temps!) and hike, explore and discover to your hearts content, but also tell a friend if you're going alone, be alert and responsive to your surroundings, and trust your gut if something seems off. Now, have a great Autumn!

September 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

For September, I've already decided I will be listening to Lizzo nonstop. Other things I will be doing include making a really good Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake, painting a mural with Atlanta's Forward Warrior, and showing a piece at ABV Gallery. I'm really looking forward to this month, because it marks the beginning of Fall, all of my favorite things, and most importantly, we're only a month away from HALLOWEEN. So.

August 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

Happy August! I just got back from the wonderful conference I attended with Minted, one of my most beloved partners. We had an incredible time and I am so thankful for that community! This month is also my birthday month, so there is a lot to celebrate! I'll be 33, and this year already has been very, very good to me. I can't wait to see what else is in store for the rest of the year.

For August, I wanted something that captured the late sunny afternoons and waning days of summer, and I thought sunflowers would be perfect. I hope you like them!

July 2019 Illustrated Desktop Wallpaper

How is it already July, you guys?! I've just gotten back from a long-awaited vacation to the beach, and man did it feel good to unwind and unplug. I hope you've got some getaways planned this summer, even if it's sitting in your backyard or local park and enjoying the outdoors with some relaxation and self care. One weird thing about me is that, even though the hottest months of the year mean lots of little critters, I actually really like insects. They're fascinating. Which is why I chose to create a moth-inspired wallpaper this month. I will say though, I have no love for mosquitos! If anyone has a bat-box, we're looking for green/natural options for mosquito control and I am open to any and all advice!

Happy June, everyone! I'm excited about June because it's finally starting to feel like summer. I'll be doing a bit of traveling and vacationing after a few solid months of being super busy with projects. April through June are always full-up for licensing with Christmas/Holiday needs (I know, confusing!! LOL) so I especially appreciate being able to bring you a Summery Desktop Wallpaper with lots of wildflowers!
