Most people think of January first as the start of a new year, but I have always felt more of a connection with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Maybe it is because it coincides with the start of the school year, or with my birthday, but I have always felt a new leaf turning in the fall.
Last Rosh Hashanah, we left our home in Houston and drove cross-country to start a new adventure in the San Francisco Bay. What a year it has been! I
got to speak at the QuickBooks Connect conference in Silicon Valley about my journey as a creative entrepreneur, I had the honor of having a show and running a workshop at the Bay Area Limmud FSU conference, and I joined an incredible community of creatives at Craftcation in Ventura.
Most importantly, I have had the pleasure of working together with so many wonderful clients to bring their artistic visions to life.
Here are a few of my favorite projects of 5778:
A commissioned housewarming gift for a best friend who made a big move
A Klimt-inspired ketubah
A celebration of the love between a mother and child
A great big portrait of a very special best friend
Yes, that's really how dirty I get when I work. Don't judge.
Whether you celebrate Rosh Hashanah or not, I wish all of you and yours a sweet, colorful year ahead!
