I wrote about it here and hope you feel the love out there in the world of ICAD. You guys are amazing, awesome, kind, supportive, and all-around CLEVER as anything!

Hi everyone! On my long, long things-to-do list I've had MAKE ICAD MOVIE for over a year. And this week, I crossed this off the list. Seriously.

I was planning to SAVE this for April but I couldn't wait to share it with you!Read More
"You may wonder, 'How can I leave it all behind if I am just coming back to it? How can I make a new beginning if I simply return to the old?' The answer lies in the return.

Thank you all for spreading 🌱💜 🦋 beauty, love, and kindness across ICADlandia. You guys are amazing! Using your imaginary global digital camera, take a snapshot of the glittery galaxy of index cards and take note of what is happening. It's summer and thus dreadfully hot here in Texas - so I have an excuse to chill out indoors and enjoy all of your cards! Here are just a few that caught my eye!Read More
