what to wear?

Seeing as I can't stop buying dresses (yes, I bought 3 more dresses since my last post)I thought I would create these lovely little retro ladies! I wish I owned every one of these dresses I illustrated. Maybe I should go into fashion design?!

New Design!

I just listed my newest card design in my Etsy shop! I love the whimsical look of these lovely wild flowers. They will be great for fall when you just want to pop off a cute little note to a friend. Snail mail is always a wonderful surprise!

I'm moving to Minnesota!

It is official, I have put my two weeks notice in at my job and have already started packing... I am moving to Minnesota! I am very excited to start my new job as an associate designer with a publishing company and I am even MORE excited that the new place my fiance, Matt, and I are living has a few spare rooms for me to set up an art studio!!! I am super excited to finally have an entire space dedicated to my art and now I can be more organized for Etsy as well! I have many plans for the new space so I will be posting many pictures of it all in the next few weeks!

The Birds Return

I have just reposted the popular Bird notecards back into my Etsy shop. They are one of my favorite styles.

Bird on Trees, Bird on Wire, Bird on Cage

Sad day.

Last night my mom called me to tell me that our dog Shyllo passed away. She was the most beautiful 3 lb. teacup yorkie out there. She was in our family for about 14 years so it is almost hard to remember a time without her in my life. I will always remember the tiny dog that would prance around and show off her doggie bones and cuddle with me while laying on the couch. She was a huge part of our family and will always be remembered.

Poppies are in full bloom!

I love the simpleness of these little poppy notecards. I have four different versions of these poppies listed in my etsy shop. You can even purchase a variety of them if you wish! (Left to right: Yellow Poppy Blank Notecards , Blue Poppy Blank Notecards , Red Poppy Blank Notecards , Red Poppy Notecards II)

Have something to say?

I created these cards because every one of us is unique. We all have something specific to say and sometimes pre-fab cards just don't word it correctly. Now you can say whatever is on your mind.... good or... bad!

8 things...

I have been tagged again to post 8 things about myself! Jacque- my mother in law (to be!) tagged me a while ago.

1. I love white! If I could have an all white house with white furnishings and wear all white I would :)
2. I like to listen to classical music when I paint.
3. I want to open my own studio some day.
4. I am planning a wedding for next summer!
5. I am a very sarcastic person!
6. I looooove Harry Potter (ok, not a surprise to many!)
7. I love the style of the 1920s-1940s
8. I am a shopaholic :)

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Look what I got in the mail today!!

I was super excited when I recieved my package from Small Stump today! I have been coveting these cute little birch vases for some time now and I finally snatched some up! Right after work I headed to pick up some little flowers to put in them! I will probably take the other 2 (I got a package of 4) to work and make my co-workers jealous!
