Also, the face behind A Second of Whimsey—a multi-passionate creative, lover of Friends reruns, dreamer of living by the sea, and in case you need some uplifting; I've been called everyone's "cheerleader"! *grins*

And guess what?! I've made something thinking of you, something to help you animate Social Media posts in the blink of an eye— that you, and your people, will love. *wink-wink*

Limited Edition Signature Collection,"Blushed"

" Your cheeks will be blushed from all that attention"

I created
A Second of Whimsey
thinking of you...


"By the resistance
to having to show our face
to stay relevant"

One day after saying to my husband: “but-but-but… I don’t want to put on makeup and do my hair just to record a video for Insta-Stories”


The biggest "secret" I've learned after 7+ years of being on Instagram:

*Whispers*: opening connection with other humans around the world—as a first step to go for your dreams—will part clouds for you that you didn’t even know they were clouded in the first place.

What are they?

They are short & sweet videos for Instagram Stories you can use as “backgrounds”; so you can add something on top: text, a photo, cute GIFs perhaps—The sky’s the limit!

{Forever yours—*cough* not like an App that you don't own *cough* }

How to use them?

Open Insta-Stories {or any other video-friendly App} + select + add something on top + share. Use them to announce a new post, ask a question, or tell about that next thing you are about to release. 

{THEN, watch the spellbindingness happen! *claps excitedly*}
" Seconds that move even introverted hearts, to kindred-connect and be seen"
