This is what my project board looks like this week – a little travel, a little Valentine’s, a little wedding, some maps.

New New New! Products in 2015!

January 22, 2015 § Leave a comment

Feels good to have the year off to an awesome start with some product launches! First up, I have a new range of products for sale on Fine Stationery. It’s got a little something for Valentine’s Day, a little something for St. Patrick’s Day, a little something for Easter, business cards, birth announcements, art prints, note pads, and notebooks. Here’s a look at two of the new items:


Aaaand, now I have Drink Blots coasters available from Studio M with art from my Bon Voyage collection! I have yet to see these beauties in person, but I am really looking forward to it. I am planning to offer these through my soon-to-be relaunched Etsy store. Here’s a look at the art:


Studio Sunday #7: Return to Productivity

January 18, 2015 § Leave a comment


Feels good to have the paint back out again – this time I’m working on some nature-themed Valentine pieces as I get ready to relaunch my Etsy store on February 1. In addition to that, this week I’ve taken on some wedding invitation design jobs and I’m getting some other new collections set up for 2015.

Stay tuned this week for some new product announcements!

To get 2015 off on the right foot, I refreshed my inspiration boards and organizational systems here in the studio. Take a look:

I forgot to share on here this painting I made for New Year’s Day, my wish for a productive and peaceful new year.


Top 10 Albums of 2014 and other favorites.

December 29, 2014 § Leave a comment

So, as always happens this time of year, I’ve completely failed to update my blog about all the new stuff going on and the the fact that there were holidays and products and lots of delicious foods and art and cute faces of kids. But, never fear, lots of overly ambitious posts and updates are coming soon in 2015! In the last deliciously lazy days of 2014, I’m only going to bother you with the one update that really matters – my top 10 albums of 2014, plus other favorite pieces of culture that happened this year.


My favorite 10 albums of 2014, in no particular order. Actually, I do know for sure that the first one IS number one, but the rest are not in particular order. I’m not a good music writer so just take some time to check these bands and artists out! Making art in my little studio would have been way less fun this year without these musical gems.
