I can spend an incredibly long time deciding on a card, especially for birthdays, for a multitude of reasons:
A) There are a bazillion to choose from…
B) I’m that obnoxious person that wants to listen to every singing card, even though it says right on the sign what song it will sing…
C) The sentiment is important–but so is the aesthetic. An ugly card with a good message is, well, still an ugly card…
D) I get hooked with the Hallmark coupon they always have available on the aisle that gets you a free card when you by so three. Just take the time an excessively slow card picker needs to pick cards and multiply it by four… ridiculous!
Anyways, with the plethora of May birthdays, I opted for a new tactic and searched out quotes (read about my quote love HERE) that reminded me of a certain dear friend and created this…
Scaled to 5 x 7 and printed on card stock, it made an easy card and with a blank interior, I could write my own message.
Do you have style? Want a copy? Let me know 🙂
I love a good quote. I’m one of those people who actually thought long and hard about buying some Quote of the Day toilet paper (I spotted it years ago in a catalog… a quick Google search did find me this design very appropriate for my birthday tomorrow!) Quotes line my cubicle walls. They end up scrawled on the back of my hand. I even memorize quotes of the red letter variety.
A quote can clarify a muddled state of mind.
I spotted this gem in a friend’s Facebook status. Call it serendipitous but I think it was a sign, especially after several conversations with separate friends about discipline (or lack thereof). This colorway customized for my favorite lady over at Dasheen Magazine!

This is the kind of question I imagine interviewers asking decorators for those high faluting magazines like Architectural Digest (which I love btw).
It got me thinking. When it comes to my first house, “What do I want my answer to be?” The answer came to me in a rhyme of sorts.
I don’t know what this means yet but I’ll have this print ready for framing when I figure it out!
And in celebration, here is the latest addition to my typography work (also known as “Mariah plays with fonts”). Feel free to download for your personal use… spread the love!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
I needed a new wallpaper and I’m in LOVE with this free font (get it HERE). I’ve become more and more interested in typography so this is my first shot… not too complex so don’t judge me. Feel free to download my little project for a screen near you!
