Born to be wild

One of the things I love about visiting Rome is watching the local men and women with briefcases and snappy suits zip around town on their motor scooters. 

The view outside my hotel window in Rome.

Chartreuse loveliness parked outside a shop in the ancient city of Orvieto.

Here in NYC, scooters can be spotted here and there but they are not as common. The thing about America is it has lot of open road. We invented the road trip and the freewheeling biker culture.

We are a country of Easy Riders with big boy bikes. 


I live in-between both worlds. So I made this mash up retirement card for those who were born to be... mild.

Here's a retirement card for easy going easy riders.  

This card is made in the USA, blank inside, and comes with a kraft paper envelope. 

A great card for retirement, changing careers or taking time off to travel. Click here to order one.

Fierce and Fabulous

My husband and I went to the Museum of Natural History during the solar eclipse. While the majority of people were outside the Hayden Planetarium with their $10 paper sun glasses, we were in hanging out with the dinosaurs.

A farmer in Michigan recently dug up a mammoth skeleton like this one in his wheat field!
A couple of large armored Glyptodons — prehistoric armadillos.
My Tyrannosaurus next to the real one.
My Tyrannosaurus card is blank inside and comes with a matching kraft paper envelope.

What is a Flopsock?

Growing up, my midwestern family had an interesting way with words. The image below is a "flopsock". This is what happens when you pull off your boots when wearing long knee-socks. They slip down and dangle half-way off with the warm middle part hugging your foot. When it's cold out, it feels good. Plus, it's fun to flop them around. That's how my studio's name, Flopsock Designs came about.

A flopsock is delightful and fun.
I live in NYC where I am an advertising creative. Flopsock Designs, is my studio where I make greeting cards and art prints. My shop carries a curated, limited selection of my best-selling designs. My work is appeals to people of all ages and has a distinctive style all its own.

Cheers!

If you listen carefully when the light hits a cold pint, you can hear the angels sing.

Relaxing on a sunny afternoon at the Broome Street Bar.


The amazing light bouncing off this icy cold beer was inspiration for this new birthday card design.
