There are many like it, but this one is mine... :P Full Metal Jacket is a great flick... :) Anyway, I've had it since August 2010 and have been trying to figure out wordpress on occasion and without any luck. My husband recent got a new job and part of the job is web design and he's decent in dreamweaver but had been working with some HTML email template sites and in the process discovered iWeb...something both of us have on our machines, yet never touched. Now we have and O_M_G_it's_buttah!

I put up a countdown clock to March 1st. Also an email link, blog link and etsy link. I hope to use iWeb to put together a gallery/portfolio site...on my freaking awesome domain :) I CAN'T WAIT!!! :)

The Art of Good

I hope SPRING is 'nigh...I'm feeling good and I want to get out!

I haven't been creating art lately, but I've had a decent amount of freelance work (for someone who had zero freelance work 2 months ago!) and while I enjoy the fine art just a tad more than the design, the design sadly pays better. Though ultimately not sad since I'm getting paid and mostly not sacrificing style or point of view.

The good news is I think I have a venue/show for an assemblage piece (ceramics and found objects, etc.)! Very exciting because I have a surprisingly large body of work from oil paintings to ceramics to printmaking...and a lot of it I've never shown outside my home :)

To be continued...
The boy needs a ride home from swim practice...

Boyer | Therapist business card design

I designed these cards for a friend from high school. She is a licensed therapist and wanted new and fun cards for the new year. She recently opened up shop on her own, a big risk, but I think she's doing well :)

The price of the die and set-up put this out of budget, but she loves the purple sofa and so do I :) wish it wasn't so expensive!
