July Shop Charity

Greenpeace

In case you missed it at the start of the year, one of the things I’ve decided to do with my shops this year is donate a portion of all sales to charities or causes that I support. July is host to UV Safety Month and Parks & Recreation Month. Since those are all about the great outdoors, I’ve chosen Greenpeace to be this month’s beneficiary. They are the largest independent direct-action environmental organization in the world. You might know… Read the rest ⇒


5 Things Friday

5 Things Friday

1. Currently sitting in my office while the A/C guys put in a whole new air conditioning system. Yeah. It crapped out Wednesday, only blowing warm air. Not the ideal situation when it’s 90 degrees outside every day. We have (had) an old system to begin with, and any fixes they did would have been temporary at best, and just need fixed again in a few months. Since Ian is tired of dealing with having to get this fixed so… Read the rest ⇒


Taking Stock

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot. These pictures are all things I see from my desk. Making : more stencils to continue playing with this new-to-me screen printing method. Cooking : waffles, sometime this weekend, to take our new waffle iron for a spin. Drinking : French vanilla cappuccino. Reading: working my way through Northanger Abbey (a modern Austen adaptation), and also Archon (a YA paranormal). Wanting: to just curl up… Read the rest ⇒

Bits & Pieces

Bits & Pieces

  I took a screen printing workshop this weekend. It was a stenciling method I hadn’t tried before, and was a lot of fun. It wouldn’t work for all of my designs, but for some it will be a much quicker way of making a screen. And I learned some tips about squeegees and ink, so all in all a good use of a Groupon and a Saturday afternoon. And I came up with a new design for the purposes… Read the rest ⇒


Send Me Your Photos

Send me your photos.

I’m finally doing something I probably should have done as soon as I opened up my shop and had my first sale: a customer photo gallery. Because I love to see how my creations live out in the world! So now, if you send in a high-quality photo of yourself wearing the shirt you ordered, or your wall sporting the art print, I’ll add it to the customer gallery on Facebook & possibly feature it here on my blog. You’ll… Read the rest ⇒


Right Now

Right Now

Right now, I am… finishing up my cappuccino before hopping in the shower. looking forward to lunch with a friend at a new-to-me restaurant. gearing up to spray paint a bunch of terracotta pots this afternoon. trying to plan out which succulents/cacti to get for said pots. really happy with the 85 degrees and sunny streak we’ve had in weather recently. My favorite. getting a big work project ready to go to the printer by Friday. waiting on some packages… Read the rest ⇒


Bits & Pieces

Bits & Pieces

I caught the boy’s cold last week (and in fact still have it) so if you’re wondering where I’ve been on the blog and Twitter, the answer is the couch. Or bed. Not much time spent on the computer the last few days. Or at the Gelato World Tour, as planned – SO bummed to miss that. Though on the upside I’ve been reading a lot and power-housing some Netflix. So there’s that. I thought I was on the upswing… Read the rest ⇒


New Digital Prints

ea-etsy

You may remember I opened a new digital shop not too long ago. I’ve been working on filling it up. Right now it’s mostly pre-made Etsy shop banners, and design services (including blog tweaks, if you need help). And while I’m still working on my first pre-made blog theme, I did debut another product line this past weekend that I’m really excited about. Introducing digitally illustrated prints! Here’s a look at a few that I’ve listed so far, so you… Read the rest ⇒
