March Freebies!

Hello Sunshine!!

March is almost upon us! While January seemed to linger forever, February is flying by!

March is such a lovely month. It begins the transition from winter to spring. I start dreaming of the beach– the white sand, warm water, ocean breezes, and of course, sunshine! However, living in Florida, we always have sunshine! 🙂

As I started thinking of what I wanted to do for wallpapers for the month of March, I decided to focus on the four leaf clover. It’s a rare form of the three leaf clover. If you want to find out more about the four leaf clover you can read about it from Wikipedia here.

Let’s Get Social – Part 3

Pinterest. How do you even say that? That’s what I first thought when I heard of this new social media site about 7 years ago. Pinterest was started in 2010 and quickly grew. It is a visual interest social media giant. In it, you create boards that can be named and categorized. For example, you can create a recipe board or fashion board or a seasonal board.

Let’s Get Social

We all know there are many social media platforms that help us connect with each other, build relationships and interact. These platforms have changed marketing forever. However, they are not all the same and they do not reach the same target audience.

Today I want to focus on Instagram. It’s by far, my favorite of the social media platforms. That’s probably because I use my public account for posting my lettering and design work, which of course, is very visual. I want others to view my work and I want to view others’ work as well. And Instagram is a completely visual platform.

The “Ber” Months and a *free* iPhone Wallpaper Background

Hello September!

It’s officially the “ber” months and while I love summer, the beach, the sun and all things fun, there is a little overwhelming excitement for the last few months of the year. For starters, September is my birthday month, along with several special people in my life. It certainly kicks off the idea of fall. Yes, I live in Florida and we don’t really have a fall per se.
