My Summer Bucket List for 2018

I designed this list of happy activities at the start of the summer to have things I could strive for and look forward to. 

2018 has proved to be the hardest year of my life: breaking up with my boyfriend, being hit with a crippling wave of anxiety, struggling with what's next in my creative career...

...and this Summer Bucket List was created to help pull me out of the weeds, one item at a time.  read more >>>


"You are alive and you have things to share so why don't you grow the eff up and get back to doing what you love: writing about your life."

-- Cathy Zeilske of CZ Designs

This personal internet space, in some form or another, has been around since December 2009. I, on the other hand, have been observing the world and sharing my findings for far longer than that. This space is where I write about my life. It is the hub of all the things I have going on.

Most currently: I'm 33 years old, living in my open, airy one-bedroom apartment on Long Island, NY with my two cat-kids.

I left my job with me & my BIG ideas back in June 2017, and have been trying to combine all my skills in design, teaching, writing, crafting, memory keeping, and marketing to propel myself into the next phase of my career. (SPOILER: IT'S BEEN HARDER THAN I THOUGHT.) 

Here is where you can follow along on my twisty-turny journey towards this goal + read about all the feelings/adventures in between. 


I co-host a podcast about the resourceful ways we women are living our lives & the crafty projects we create in between.  learn more >>>

I've designed a bunch fun, colorful strips to lay right on top of your Happy Planner™ pages to make them hourly & lined.  go get 'em >>>

I've been called "The Queen of Memory Planning" and created this e-course w/ BPC to show you how I do it.  learn more >>>
