Announcing Dragonflight Digital

Dragonflight Digital

This is something I’ve had on the brain for awhile, and have hinted at here on the blog, but it’s finally happened! I’ve opened a 2nd shop, specializing in design services and digital goods. It’s called Dragonflight Digital, and will eventually have WordPress and Blogger templates, Etsy shop banners, digital prints, listings for pre-made mix-and-match options, and completely custom design services options (logos, blog headers, sidebar ads, etc.). I just opened less than 2 weeks ago, so there’s not a… Read the rest ⇒


Bits & Pieces

Bits & Pieces

1. This past weekend the boy and I went to see a show called TITtalks. It was in the format of TED Talks, except all of the ‘experts’ were improv comedians and they had no idea before stepping on stage what topic & visual aids they would be assigned and have to do a talk on. It was hilarious. We caught it on the last day of its run, sadly, or I’d tell you fellow Austinites to go check it… Read the rest ⇒


Art Prints Get a Facelift

11-85-blue-myst

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you know that last week I finally got matching frames for all of the different size prints I sell in my shop. That commenced a 2-afternoon photo shoot as I re-took the main listing photos for all of the prints, complete with frames and a little bit of staging with trinkets. I did the photo editing over the weekend, and now the new photos are live in the shop. Take a look:… Read the rest ⇒


5 Things Friday

5 Things Friday

1. We’re hosting a brunch this weekend and doing a breakfast taco bar. Somehow, we’ve never made breakfast tacos at home, despite being fans of the dish. So the logistics are a bit fuzzy on how to get everything cooked/keep everything warm at the same time, but we’ll figure it out. And if not I’ve got cinnamon rolls as back-up. 2. If you’ve been around the blog awhile, you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I’m a big fan… Read the rest ⇒


New Design: Seahorse

Seahorse design

The drawing bug finally hit me again this week, and I’ve actually got a couple of new designs for the shop sketched out. A few still need tweaking, but this one is ready to go. A seahorse! It’s actually based off of a sketch in an old sketchbook of mine, for a seahorse-shaped metal pendant design. A few adjustments and additions, and I like it! I think the style fits in well with the look of the rest of my… Read the rest ⇒


March Shop Charity

Global Fund for Women

In case you missed it at the start of the year, one of the things I’ve decided to do with the shop this year is to donate a portion of all sales to charities or causes that I support. March is women’s history month, and so to support the cause of women’s right, this month’s charity is the Global Fund for Women. They work around the world to reduce violence against women, advocate for economic and political empowerment of women,… Read the rest ⇒


Bits & Pieces

Bits & Pieces

1. The quasi-in-laws are in town, which means last week’s cleaning frenzy has been followed by lots of cooking, eating out, watching movies/TV, and checking out Austin things like Torchy’s Tacos and the new aquarium – which is not great, but not terrible. It has lots of ‘petting’ tanks, so that was cool. I didn’t take today and tomorrow off like the boy did, so I’m home doing work stuff and blog stuff while they’re out seeing South Congress and… Read the rest ⇒


Right Now

Right Now

Right now, I am… still in PJs. about to dive into an intense writing frenzy to finish up my entry for the first round of the NYC Midnight Short Story Challenge. I’d like to finish it early today, so that tonight and tomorrow I can spend time with Ian. so glad that it’s back to sunny, warmer weather here in Austin. Grey days just make me blah. also hoping to move furniture back in place and hang things on the… Read the rest ⇒

5 Things Friday

1. I’m a beta tester for a new stock image site, and it’s awesome. (and also sekrit, sorry) So if you’ve noticed new header images on regular post series (Bits & Pieces, TTT, this), that is why. And I have more lined up. Bwahahaha endless photos. Sidenote: I actually have the statue second from the left, and it always makes me happy – he’s just so jolly! So this image made me quintuply happy. 2. If you’re in the Austin… Read the rest ⇒
