The #evolution of mom's #kitchen. The house was built in 1995. We originally painted the cabinets white in 2006. However, the picture was taken in 2017 when we repainted the them. Also in 2017, we bought #wood, cut, sanded & stained it ourselves. Got a huge discount for the #brackets ($4/ea). A couple of months ago we got new #countertops installed. Last week we my cousin's husband installed the #subwaytile #backsplash. We've been working at this little by little over the years. It's been a long journey. So worth it. #home #kitchendesign #kitchenshelving #beforeandafter #openshelving #makeover #painting #diy #diydecor #homeimprovement #home #wallcolor #gray #grey #galleykitchen #kitchendecor #workaholic #workinprogress #weekendwarrior #farmhouse #farmhousestyle #hamptonsstyle #fixerupper

A day devoted to love, has been shattered by senseless violence. Something that could have been prevented. But no. Now families and friends have been torn apart from each other... again. How many more lives must be lost before this government does something? I'm spending my #ValentinesDay with my #mom. She is my #bestfriend. She is my everything. Never take the ones you #love for granted. #family #ilovemymom #cherish #loveandlight #heavyheart #cookies #decoratedcookies #sugarcookies #makers #yums #dessert #goodies #happyvalentinesday #valentinesday2018 #gifts

It's not the greatest video. But 10 years ago I got to witness and meet a great #pioneer of #hiphop. This was at Studio B in #Brooklyn on an incredibly cold January 20, 2008. I had a 4 mega pixel camera and it sucked in low light. But I didn't care. It was an amazing show featuring @videomusicbox @mrchuckd_pe @rakimgodmc and many more. @djstatic222 just produced the new track "It's Nothing" for #Rakim. My (now ex) man & I were there rocking out to the first live performance of the song. They were all so nice to me... a little nobody white girl from Jersey who loves hip hop, making flyers and giving back. I only got to say hi to @lovebugstarski for a moment but he was just so happy to meet everyone. I remember this night like it was last week. Live music will do that to you. Thanks for the memories and the love. #lovebugstarski #broklyn #tbt #backintheday #livemusic #njhiphop #hiphopheads #liveshows #livedj #trueschool #memories #undergroundhiphop #indiemusic #independenthiphop #indiehiphop #thankful

It's never too late to thank someone. Especially when that someone is #JDilla. I rocked 3 of these 5 #pins today in honor of one of the greatest #hiphop #producers of our time. He will live forever through our speakers. #dilla #dilladonuts #jaydee #happybirthdayjdilla #pins #flair #pingame #pingamestrong #pingameproper #pingang #music #musiclife #wearableart #enamelpin #enamelpins #lapelpin #lapelpins #fashion #accessories #fashiondesign

It's been 2 years today since I was unhooked from my final, 48 hour chemo treatment. Still can't believe I beat Colon Cancer. Grateful for the support. Sad we lost friends & acquaintances to this or other diseases. Not sure why I was spared, but trying to push through each day. #remission #coloncancer #cancer #stupidcancer #cancerwoes #recovery #battles #pushthrough #colorectalcancer #chemotherapy #art #artlife #design #designlife #graphicdesign #typography #calligraphy #handlettering #artistsoninstagram #ladieswhodesign #kupiart

Once in a while people really are grateful for your abilities. It's something we artists and designers struggle with. In the business of graphic design, your heart is broken daily. So when a client trusts your vision the first time, and pays you without argument or conflict, it's like an out of body experience. So much negativity is spewed at us, we're almost scared to trust our own judgment. And almost don't believe when someone actually loves the concepts we come up with. You have to remind yourself that you are good at what you do and you are helping someone's dreams. Even if you have to sacrifice your own sometimes. Nutter Butters need not apply. #art #artlife #design #designlife #graphicdesign #vector #logodesign #branding #corporateidentity #marketing #typography #type #typenerd #lettering #capracare #charity #haiti #artistsoninstagram #ladieswhodesign #kupiart

#TBT but not too long ago. Forgot to share. I designed a window graphic for @trixiemattel's show at @club1jefferson a couple of years ago. #ClubOne is one of the first and oldest gay clubs in the southeast. It gained a lot of popularity when the #ladychablis performed there before her passing in 2016. #trixiemattel #fabulous #dragshow #dragqueen #dragqueens #pageants #cabaret #rupaulsdragrace #art #artlife #design #designlife #graphicdesign #clubflyers #flyerdesign #posterart #posterdesign #designposter #print #printing #poster #ladieswhodesign #kupiart

A new little something I designed. I did the #artwork for the new #album by #Codenine 'IX'. It's modified from Hawkwind's album 'Live Chronicles'. Not original, but the #albumrelease #show #poster is. If you're in the #Boston or #Quincy area tomorrow night, check it out. #art #artlife #design #designlife #graphicdesign #clubflyers #flyerdesign #posterart #posterdesign #designposter #print #printing #poster #music #hiphop #ladieswhodesign #kupiart

Rest in power #HughMasekela. Incredible #jazz musician. I'm honored to have helped with this album release for 'From the Vault of Chisa: 1965-1975', in 2006. It featured rare and unreleased music from "the vault of #Chisa". If you're late, it's definitely one to add to your #vinyl collection. #afrobeatblues #mahlalela #soweto #jazzmusic #afrobeats #southafrica #zimbabwe #funk #soul #goodvibes #art #artlife #design #designlife #graphicdesign #flyerdesign #posterart #poster #posterdesign #artistsoninstagram #ladieswhodesign #kupiart

#JerseyCity is one of my favorite places. I've never lived there, but hung out and participated in many events. I also helped with a food and clothing drive with good friends for about 7 years, in the forgotten areas of Jersey City. The #art and #music scene is #beautiful. The people I know there are just as #spectacular. I'm a bit #homesick but I get to carry it with me. So can you! My #redbubble link is in the bio. ☝️👛❤️

Guess who joined #redbubble? Get a sneak peek of some designs I have available. After 20 years for designing for other people, I'm doing my own thing. Yes, I will still freelance and handle my day job. This is just something I've put off for way too long.

I haven't baked or decorated #cookies in a long time. But I wanted to do something special for my coworker's #birthday--Jennifer. These were originally in the shape of #NewJersey however they kept breaking. So I moved on to plan b. Jenn loves the #JerseyShore. The actual place, not the show. Even though this wasn't the first choice, they still came out #cute. Jenn loved them. Since we were closed on her birthday, I had to give them to her late. But it's all good. She's good people and deserves to be #celebrated. #art #design #birthdaycookies #beach #beachcookies #sugarcookies #decoratedcookies #customcookies #food #foodie #bake #homebaking

The #snow is melting but the ice is still detrimental. Still pretty. #southernsnow #jerseygirl #snowday #snow #savannah #peaceful #snowfall #savannahsnow

I made a little video of the #snowfall around the house this morning. I'm so loving this!

There's a little #snowstorm hitting the southeast. While the rest of the area panics, we've got #snacks. Bring it on! #snowsnacks #goodies #yums #cookies #emergencychocolate #sweets #comfortfood #blizzard #cozy #snowday #dayoff #again #monogram #typography #calligraphy #typenerd #letters
