May you have a wonderful start to your New Year! This month's illustration may not seem the most seasonally-appropriate, but as I sat down to design this month's wallpaper, I felt the need to draw something optimistic and lush as a way of putting those intentions out for all of us in 2022. Rather than asking the Year to be good to us, let's ask ourselves on the daily how to care for ourselves and each other. We all have the ability to make our dreams/goals/visions come true - it's not the Year that does it, it's us ;)

Happy New Year, everyone!
Happy 2021, everyone! We made it!
A very big pat on the back to you for making it to the other side of 2020! While we're not walking through a portal today into a world free of problems, it does feel good to step into a New Year with a fresh attitude and hopeful mindset. We may still need to work to clear some hurtles, but with continued work and focus, I am hoping that this year we'll see a little more peace, magic, prosperity and love.
If you're a member of the community who has suffered a loss in 2020 - we see you. A New Year and all of its promise is exciting to celebrate, but it doesn't take away real hurts from the past year. Whether it's a loved one, your job or financial security, or your mental health, last year took a real and tangible toll and I just wanted to take a moment here to acknowledge that as well, and let you know we're thinking about you, and sending you thoughts for peace, renewal and joy in 2021.

I love to see your setups! Did you do any 2021 Refreshing or Reorganizing of your space? Take a snap of your space with your new wallpaper, and tag me over on Instagram so I can give you a high-five (or high-elbow)!
Thank you all so much again.
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.

Thank you so much for being here, and I hope this new decade gives you a chance for reflection, clarity and hope!
Happy 2019! I hope you had a restful holiday, and are entering the new year with energy and optimism. This month, I wanted to create a wallpaper that was simple but elegant, with white space for breathing, since that is part of my New Years Resolution this year. I am hoping to simplify, and achieve more of a work-life balance. And also have more fun! What are your resolutions??
