If you haven’t figured me out by now (not sure my husband has even after 18 years of marriage), at the very least you should know that I only use and associate myself with the best. The best quality, the best customer service, the best…

Anyone who knows me knows that I am extremely selective when it comes to promoting or even recommending products, services, or events. I don’t just trust anyone, and I certainly don’t promote lackluster happenings without first hand experience and knowledge. So today, I wanted to…

If you are a fontaholic like I am, or just need a pretty good variety of fonts because you work in graphic and print design, then chances are you’ve been frustrated trying to find just the right font for a project.

Font management you ask? Yes, of course! There is a really good – and free – font manager out there called…

One of my favorite things in the world is WordPress. I absolutely love it! Maybe that’s a little lame, but somewhere down the line over the last year I have morphed my skills and pushed WordPress to its limits by using it as a CMS to build great websites for my clients…that they can actually update themselves…rather than using WordPress as just a blogging platform.
Over time, many people have asked me where I got a theme or where they can get one like it. Well, you can’t really as 99% of my design work and WordPress themes are all custom designed for each client. Of course there have been times where someone just wants me to install a premade theme for them to use as is, so I have a list of reliable sites that offer free WordPress themes. At the top of that list is WooThemes.
