Hi! I’m Heather. I’m a mom, a blogger, and a graphic designer. I am happy to contribute a post for the Family Celebration. I love the Proclamation, but my house is a bit funky and modern and the available version didn’t fit very well with the rest of my decor. I wanted to create something that I could frame that would fit in with the rest of our crazy belongings. So, a few years ago, I designed one for myself. Same exact text- just laid out a bit different. I have a few different versions on my blog, The Modern Hive. I originally made it 12×12 for digital scrapbooking and then created a 8.5×11 version as well. I discovered that although I like that size, I wanted a smaller version to hang up in a different color. So, this celebration is the perfect reason for a re-do! The new version chocolate brown -a shout out to Chocolate on my Cranium 🙂 and sized to fit an 8×10 frame.
I love to create. My memories of childhood are filled with making things. I was always working on some sort of project- and then sometimes trying to sell them to my poor neighbors. I have a passion for vintage goods, simple design, and love to re-mix old stuff into new things. I love giving thrifted things new life. I try to be health conscious & earth friendly and have vowed to own chickens some day. I am a mom, a wife, and work from my home studio along side my kids who love to make art messes as much as I do.
