My blog is getting a new home!

Hello Friends and Followers!  It is my pleasure to announce my new blog: !

I will not be posting any new content to LorettaMay Design blog, but all the content from this blog has already been moved over to the new one. I hope you continue to follow me at Creatively Driven. You will not be notified when I post at this new blog, but I’ve made subscribing SUPER easy.


Step One:  Go to

Step Two: Locate the “subscribe” section on the right column. (On mobile phones, it’s farther down toward the bottom under “elsewhere”.)

Step Three: Enter your email address

Step Four: Hit Subscribe

You’ll get a confirmation email and you will be notified whenever I make a post! It’s that easy.


I’ve re-organized my categories to three overlying ideas:

Design: All my series on design practices, client stories, and how to’s will be housed here.

Refresh: All my photography posts and adventures away from the computer will live here.

Inspire: A new section, devoted to inspiring artists, books, and anything else creative.

My goal is to be both a practical resource for creatives who are just starting out, as well as provide inspiring posts, incorporating my own photography and illustration.

Freelance Trial and Error: Battling Fort Knox (the client that wouldn’t let me use my work in my portfolio)

Adventure: Fort Sheridan (Photography post about going to Fort Sheridan, Illinois for the weekend)

Stay tuned!
