It's fun how everyday we can start anew. But we choose certain times of the year to really make that a priority. I hope you had a nice Easter and move forward with new ideas, new experiences and a new appreciation for life... again.

I got a new client a week or so ago. It's always a new experience working with someone for the first time. Art and design is very subjective and different people like different things. My job is to create something that sells your product or service to varying individuals, but it's still YOUR piece and you should happy with the end product. There is nothing more rewarding than designing something for someone for the first time and receiving a reaction of such great appreciation. It makes me feel so good about what I do. So, thank you for your appreciation - I appreciate it more than you know!

In this day and age - no, wait - at any time in life, we should go above and beyond what is asked of us. If you love what you do, it's actually easy... or should I say, it's hard to avoid. When doing a project you love, it's impossible not to add a little here, fix a little there, or provide several more options than you "quoted" on. That is what sets us apart from people who are just doing a job. If you aren't driven to give more than you have been asked for, then look at what you're doing and ask "is there something else I would love more?, or somewhere else I should be?" Find your passion and work no longer feels like 'work'.

I do other things than print graphics. It's fun and keeps my mind open. I love making jewelry, and this weekend I baked homemade dog treats for my Tika girl. I put a T on each one to personalize them for her! The recipe is easy and would be a great thing to do with your kids. Now I just need to get fun cookie-cutter shapes like squirrels, cats and bones!
