Happy Jewish New Year!

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!

This is a story of a small business owner who played international detective to solve a mystery. A normal person would have let it go and trusted that the hands of fate would lead Oren and Catalina to me  – if these people were even the right Oren and Catalina! But this is not the story of a normal person, so I didn’t give up.

How to stay married (and in love!) for 65 years
How to stay married (and in love!) for 65 years

May 16, 2018

My grandparents are the perfect couple --- and not in a cliché “still in love after all these years” Hallmark card sort of way, but in a really solid, loving and tender sort of way. Anyone who spends a little bit of time with them can see how much they admire each other. Together they have survived war, hunger, exile to Siberia, anti-Semitism, a Communist regime, persecution, immigration and illnesses, and still through it all there is no bickering. After much convincing, they agreed to do a video interview with me to share their experience, wisdom and advice for a happy marriage.
