It’s Official: I have an Etsy Store!


I’ve had enough interest in my art to make me think people might actually want to own some. 😀 So, I created a store on a site y’all have probably heard about: Etsy.com.

My Night at Treads & Threads


Here in Kansas City there is a large gala fundraiser for The University of Kansas Hospital Cancer Center every year called “Treads & Threads”. Through my company and specifically my own job, I’m able to work with this group for their digital needs – and I love it!

Tico time & pura vida

Brenna Bakes: RED VELVET CUPCAKES


In case I haven’t mentioned it lately, I believe my coworker may be a demon in disguise. Not quite the devil incarnate, but definitely a figure from the deepest, darkest corners of hades. She was sent to earth solely to keep good people, like me, from obtaining a desirable weight. Her instrument of torture today: RED VELVET CUPCAKES!
