Who’s going to stop me?

One woman who is dear to my heart is my sister-in-law, Ashley. Many years ago, her mother received a beautiful Valentine’s day gift that she would forever treasure. Today, this strong woman is in Guatemala teaching youngsters at a Christian school. This post is about and for her. Ashley is one of the women who I admire, not only for her willingness and obedience to follow where the Lord leads her but also for her independence and love for people. She is a servant of the Lord, and though she has weaknesses and fears (like everyone) she trusts in our Father to meet her needs, provide for her, work through her, and teach her.

I wanted to make something special for you, Ashley. As my sister and role-model for servanthood – being a Proverbs 31 woman – here is a picture to depict how I see you – A God fearing woman ready to lead and follow.

Love you sis, and happy birthday! ❤

12 This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 13 Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. 14 And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. 15 Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!  – 2 Cor. 9:12-15

Ads, ads, ads … they’re not always eye sores

Below are some “ads” or promotional graphics that I created for our email and social media campaigns. The first is a quick promo I made for one of our company partners (Varonis). They have a webinar coming up this week but did not send us a graphic, so I created something to visually promote it (within their branding guidelines Of Course!).


The second piece is to promote our company’s product – Micro Certifications! We are giving everyone the opportunity to take all 5 of our end user security exams for free.


Lastly, the third piece is to promote the RSA Conference (USA) currently happening. I used it in a few of our email campaigns last week, so here’s hoping it helped 😉


As you might notice, I have gotten into black and white – it’s clean and easy to work with, and looks pretty darn professional. PLUS, it fits perfectly in with my company’s emerging theme of “cool, educated, sophisticated business hackers”.

CyberSponse/Cybrary Affiliation Ads

Today I was tasked with creating an advertisement to put on a partner company’s website that would promote our new product line, “Teams”.

Here are the ads I made, one side ad (300 x 600) and one full-width ad (1600 x 175).

And here is the ad placement on the incidentresponse.com website.
