Graditude

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie
Happy Thanksgiving. Be grateful.

Fibrous Fun

I’m working on a website and logo for some friends of mine who took over the Central Pennsylvania Fiber Festival. I have had so much fun with these! I’m also going to vend there with the soap but the event isn’t til the spring.


PA colors are blue and gold and then I tried some other fun color combinations. I looked at other fiber festival logos and took into consideration of what the board was thinking of. I love Rhinebeck’s yarn festival logos. It changes every year. How cute is that!

I am a very graphic, graphic designer…with bold coloring and solid looking design. I wanted to sit down and draw something out to give a more organic feel but I really just didn’t have time. That’s where my last set of yarn scribbly came from. 

I would LOVE to hear your honest thoughts! I value the opinion of the target audience and you, my dear bloggy friend, are it! Thanks bunches!

Tragedy 

This was a hard week.

Monday, there was a deadly shooting of a mother and her son. The son’s children were in the house being protected by his sister. They are related to a very dear friend of mine’s fiance, who is also a good friend. No reason as of yet or anyone apprehended for the crime.

Tuesday, another deadly shooting…a double suicide of some local teens. A boyfriend and girlfriend found in a car. The boy, 16, was my eldest son’s childhood friend from Boy Scouts. They’ve known each other since first grade. Just devastating to our community. Our high school student body has been rocked.

Wednesday was the second anniversary of one of my best friend’s death who died from cancer. I miss him so much.

Please hold your loved ones close, closer than you think you should.
