I’ve had this animation in my head for “a ryle’ now, and it’s so fun to see it finally come to life! Of course, I couldn’t have made this blooming community garden without your help. Every single flower in this piece was created by one of you! Last week when I asked you to submit #flowers4rachel I was blown away with how many wonderful drawings I received. I tried to pack them all into the final piece, but only about a third made it. Whether your flower bloomed in this garden or not, know that I am so thankful that you took the time to create this animation with me! A community can be a powerful force, especially when you create something joyful together. I hope this inspires you to keep creating & always make it a “zip-a-dee-doo-dah” day! Love you guys! PS there isn’t a hidden emoji today, instead click on #flowers4rachel & see how many of those flowers you can find! 

This week kicked off with a bang, summer is finally here! I’ll be the first to admit, the only reason I garden in the spring is so that I can have fresh mint for my summer mojitos! ’Tis the season to bring the party outside and celebrate summer! I figured it’s a Wednesday, we all deserve a mojito moment! Cheers…from my garden party to yours!

So…have you seen it!? Instagram has a new logo!! As you can tell from this animation, I’m totally ‘digging’ it!! It’s so fresh, vibrant & fun! True, the original logo will forever have a special place in my heart, but I am loving the new look! Instagram has always been so full of life & color and this icon truly reflects the vibrant world that we’ve all created through our posts in the app. Well done, Instagram team! You’ve had my heart along with my art for years. I’m happy to share this colorful creation to celebrate this exciting milestone in your company’s growth! Here’s to many more posts from all of us as we continue to make life vibrant!!

It’s Earth Day, can you dig it? I think we all agree that everyday should be Earth Day, but today is a worldwide reminder that we all need to do our part to take care of this planet! Go hug a tree, plant a seed, and pick up some litter! Together every small action can make a big difference! Happy Earth Day…or rather, make the Earth Happy Day!
