Happy Jewish New Year!

Happy New Year! 

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. 

Rosh Hashanah Greeting by Anna Abramzon

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:

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! Need a special Rosh Hashanah card to bring to dinner or give to a family member? Look no more! Sign up for my mailing list and I will send you a free art card -- it's my thank you for staying in touch. Just download, print (preferably on cardstock), fold in half, and gift away!  Shana Tova u'Metuka!
Cheers to a great year ahead!

Alexa and Jonathan have a strong Jewish identity and wanted to tell their family's story, incorporating images of a violin, Israel, and San Francisco, where both of them grew up. They just moved into their beautiful home in Marin County, just north of San Francisco, and they wanted some meaningful art for their dining room -- I am so lucky that they picked me as their partner for this wonderful project.

I was the only non-English speaking kid in my second-grade class, until, three months later, a red-headed boy appeared in the classroom doorway, with the deer-in-the-headlights look immediately recognizable to fellow immigrant children everywhere. Twenty-four years later, I had the pleasure of making a custom ketubah for Yan and his beautiful wife, Jessica.
