I’ve Been Pinned!!! :)

Posted on January 13th, 2015 by Que Sera in news

It started a year or so ago.. I get an email that said something like..”I saw a senior ad you designed on Pinterest & was wondering how much you charge..”   I thought..  ‘ WHAT? .. I just have homemade cleaners, healthy food my kids don’t eat & really funny stuff on my Pinterest… weird…? “, but responded & went about my business.

After a few re-occurances of this interesting act,  I decided maybe I should investigate. What do you know.. I’ve been Pinned!  Tons of times, for my very cool-looking senior ad designs — yeah!!  I’m sure the amazing photography of my Dallas friend, aStudioProductions, that was featured in those ads didn’t hurt in making them stand out!

I was ( and still am.. ) VERY excited & amused by the whole thing & love it when it says my work’s been ‘pinned’ ( I’m a bit of a nerd :) ). If anyone reads this & wants to take me up on some sort of discount for pinning my work .. I could maybe come up with an official reward – so ask!

I’ve done a few ads this year, just because of this amusing re-pinning going on & am now intending to add samples of my other work projects to see if I can make some more pinterest magic, lol !

In theory of this very cool use of something i mostly thought was for categorizing my funny photos – Here are a few more senior ad designs to include in my portfolio… If you like them, feel free to Pin Me … :)

Thanks to all the clients for finding me on pinterest & thanks to all the ‘pinners’ for adding my work to your boards – Keep Pinning!!

Where has the time gone…??

Posted on January 13th, 2015 by Que Sera in news

Ok – well , with zero posts in years..  it does seem I’ve stopped working ( which 3 children under the age of 4 can do to anyone.. see photo attached.. what a bunch of trouble-makers, gotta love em! )

The Carpenter Family!


BUT — alas, Thank Goodness,  it’s not entirely true & there may be posts of new work in my future!

Around this time last year I was thinking about how much I missed designing things & about  how I had super amounts of free time to spend on just anything, lol!  Then magically, I was contacted by an old client that had a new company to work with & a LOT of new adventure ( you’ll see in time! :) ). He proposed some projects I thought looked  too fun to pass up, so I’ve consistently been doing projects for him all year ( even the month little Madeline was born,  we still fit in a long grocery list of projects.. she’s such a sweet and accommodating baby, NOT  at all like her sister, thank goodness – there’s only room for one EVELYN  — she’s awesome!).

I thought of posting the new projects online, but with them all being for the same Company/client.. I thought it may be too much. If time allows, though – there’s a good chance some of my favorites will make the blog in time…





Gotta Love (Literally :)) Toledohandyman.com

Posted on May 30th, 2012 by Que Sera in news

http://toledohandyman.com| Web Design Toledo, OhioThe whirlwind of change and excitement is finally settling down.. or maybe I’m just finally getting used to it :)  — either way,  it’s well past time to update the blog! For many, I know it seems I’ve disappeared.. but not really, just went through many life changes (all definitely for the better! ) & things have moved at lightning speed as they often do when life is good :) .

It all began with the initial meeting for this website (http://toledohandyman.com) … little did I know then that 2 yrs. later I’d be sitting here, in our new home, married to the owner of the business it represents praying our new little 1 yr. old would nap a little longer so I could finish this post!

Life leads in crazy directions, but I couldn’t be happier with where the path’s led me to & who I’ve been given the honor of sharing my life with from here on — I am however, really bummed that it took so long to find him & that things had to be so hard for us both in the meantime! 

(yep, that’s my husband in the video on the home page… woo hoo!! )

I met Paul ( the owner | DJ| Emcee for The Entertainment Network ) at an EPIC ‘Lunch n Leads’ Luncheon

Lucky Stone Jewelry | Online Store

Posted on January 7th, 2010 by Que Sera in news

As one of my first projects through my affiliation with TradeFirst, I was blessed to work with an amazing woman to help turn her ‘hobby’ into an official online store. Alison is a local an interior designer ( Granview Design – LaSalle, Michigan ), but found a skill and love of jewelry-making that has brought us Lucky Stone Jewelry as well.

Her pieces range from simple and natural to sophisticated and sleek, to just fun and cool. What makes Lucky Stone Jewelry unique is that most of her items are made from ‘beach treasures’ found near her home on the shores of Lake Erie, her favorites are ‘lucky stones’. To find out more about Lucky Stones & Alison’s amazing jewelry Click here to visit LuckyStoneJewelry.com!

The store uses a custom Magento template with a few addons and tweaks ( flash, blog, product viewing etc.. ) and is completely editable by Alison whenever she has new creations to add.

Getaway Gel Scents, coming soon to Walgreens!

Posted on December 31st, 2009 by Que Sera in news

Gel Air Fresheners are a fairly new offering in the air freshener market & Perfect Scents, Inc. based in Ormond Beach, Florida is about to launch a new set that will be available at Walgreens!

It was fun working with them to update the packaging and freshener design they originally had in mind to deliver a new, appealing look & product to Walgreen’s customers!

I haven’t had a chance to smell the new set yet, but if they’re anything like the UGOGRL fresheners we helped  a previous company of theirs create a few years ago.. they will be great ( I still have some of the GoFresh! fresheners around the house : ) ! )
