Come on…

Some words for you today.

When I booked our engagement photos for mid-March many months ago, I was picturing cherry blossoms and budding trees and chirping birdies.

If there are still piles of dirty snow on the ground, I will still be wearing open-toed espadrille wedges and bare (self-tanned) legs, thank you very much.

Hopping Around the Christmas Tree

What did I do this weekend, you ask?

Oh you know, just sat on my couch with a bottle of red, cuddled in my white faux fur throw and bird PJ pants, and worked on this little guy for you.

Presenting this year’s 2013 Christmas card…Australian hopping mice, decorating a Christmas tree!

Available on Etsy now…shipping by next Wednesday or earlier!


Art and Design Lately (Part II)

Hello, lovelies!

Just wanted to drop in to let you know that if you click THIS LINK (you can only get the promo through this exact link), you will get free shipping at my Society6 store. I have two new illustrations available as iPhone cases, throw pillows, t-shirts, laptop and iPad skins, and more.

Love you to the moon print

Love You to the Moon….and Back is one of my favorite sayings, and when I designed it recently for a personal project (MyPublisher makes the BEST photo books! I make one every year for our anniversary. Hopefully Coop doesn’t read this before this weekend, surprise ruined!), I thought it could make a nice addition to my Society6 shop.


Also, Foxy! He is the first of a larger scale project I am doing, and the first in a series. He makes a pretty cute pillow.

Also, I now have Balloon Duck bookmarks and Treefrog blank greeting cards for sale in my Etsy shop. Check it out!

Newly added to my Society6 shop to hold you over (until my Etsy shop gets a TON of additions….mostly holiday-related)…something a little different!
I am a huge fan of textures and patterns, and in my quest to design some pretty wrapping paper this season, I have been playing with some patterns. Now available are my new Pattern No. 1, Pattern No. 2, and Feather Pattern; all are available in various print sizes, iPhone cases, laptop and iPad skins, tote bags, notecards, shirts, and more.
And NOW through November 11th, if you click this link, you will receive $5 off every product you buy from my shop! Let me know if you have any pattern requests. They are so fun to play with! Happy Tuesday, everyone! xoxo

Happy Humpday, Have a Freebie!
