...Sure am Jealous of Tennesee!

I like to listen to inspirational, thematic music while I work. I like a good song about Texas while designing Texas souvenirs and gifts, its just fitting! Its appropriate and it sure does get me in the mood! This one's been rolling around in my head for a few days now; "All My Exes Live in Texas" is just so classic.

The more I read this quote as I was creating this image for Instagram, the more I got goosebumps. I love celebrating women and all of their strengths.

I've joined a book club of strong, creative, intelligent gals that has simply gotten me fired up! We're reading books that help you find your happiness, set...

In-House Photographers are Handy!

When I started Texas Love, my little souvenir shop, I was really just looking for a creative outlet. But, as I started examining what I wanted from this new venture I realized I wanted to make a real go of it. A real, whole-hearted go of it. So, I decided to make the leap from a catalog of print on demand only products to holding inventory. I bought my first round of Texas Skies mugs, actual inventory on hand. Then, hooked on the challenge of selling products that I design and created I purchased my first round of Born and...
