Welcome to #NOLA  week on the blog - we'll be talking about different aspects of our recent road trip to New Orleans every day. By the end of it, you'll be booking your own trip!
Everyone has to work together, from the planning stages, to the packing up and driving, to the flexibility in what happens when.

You guys need to see this crazy awesome tree swing we put up last week! #ad   #swingAndSpin  
I hope that when our kids grow up, they'll look back on our country house with happy nostalgia, thinking of all the amazing adventures we've had here.

True story, there's nothing better than late night tree swinging with the huzz, watching cars go by with a couple of drinks.

Decisions, decisions: Take this @GoldnPlump quiz, save $1, and throw some patties on the barby! #SavorTheFlavor http://bit.ly/SavorTheFlavor
With a fun 20-second quiz, I discovered my favorite Gold’n Plump Chicken Patties flavor. And I got a $1 off coupon for any of the four flavors: new Tex Mex, Bacon & Cheddar, Mushroom & Swiss or Original. What flavor do you savor? Take the quiz to find out, get a coupon and enter for a chance to win a box of chicken patties.

I was drawing fantastic Tokyo landmarks for most of last year - then the whole coloring books for adults craze happened and this book is SO PERFECT for it.

Because sometimes #parenting is hard.
How do you handle it when your kid breaks your heart? Can you suck it up long enough to teach them about unconditional love?

Story
Tagline
Graphic Design, Art, Illustration. Hilarity. Not necessarily in that order.
Introduction

Steph Calvert is the owner, award-winning designer, and illustrator behind Hearts and Laserbeams. She has been working nonstop since graduating from Georgia’s Savannah College of Art and Design in 1999. Her web, design, and illustration work has been seen worldwide on apparel, in print, and online.

Steph has been self employed since 2010, working with small business to take their design and illustration to the next level. She speaks at conferences on small business topics, loves peanut M&Ms, and is working on self publishing a children’s book about dreams.

Steph shares her home with her hilarious partners in crime: husband Josh, son Phil (3 years), daughter Joy (3 months), and mom-in-law Carole, along with a slew of animals that can best be described as more than a little farmy. She enjoys coloring with her son, karaoke, and a good glass of wine every now and then. (But preferably now, thanks.)

About Our Blog

Click for our media kit

Steph Calvert has blogged for Hearts and Laserbeams since 2002, and talks about art, humor, lifestyle, parenting and small business with a fun, optimistic flair. The Hearts and Laserbeams podcast lauched in 2014 as an additional vehicle for ridiculousness. Steph was a contributor of parenting and crafting posts to Soliel Moon Frye’s website Moonfrye in 2013, and brought indie arts and crafts news to OC Weekly’s website visitors through her “Gettin’ Made” blog posts from 2009-2011.

Most recently, Steph learned a thing or two about search engine optimization and tackled her own blog’s lagging statistics. She has since written an extremely helpful eBook, “Easy SEO for Bloggers”. The book details the steps Steph takes to make each of her Hearts and Laserbeams blog posts search engjne friendly. These steps have rocketed her website from an Alexa score of over 5 million worldwide to one of the top 200,000 websites in the U.S. in under six months.

We Give Back

10% of all revenue is donated to Living Faith Church. This money helps to support their day to day operations, community outreach, and worldwide missions trips like their recent visit to Honduras.

Where in the World is Hearts and Laserbeams?

Hearts and Laserbeams is located in Guyton, Georgia, a small town just outside of Savannah.
We work with clients all over the United States, and love to meet in person with clients in the Effingham and Chatham county areas.
