Unicorn Tote Bags in Gold

I’m sure you know by now…but I sure do like unicorns!

A while back I shared some photos of a new item in my Etsy Shop… my Unicorn Tote Bags in Blue and Pink. Now they’re available in gold AND with a different color variation: Gold unicorn with white mane and White unicorn with gold mane.

 

This is one of my new favorite items… and definitely a favorite color-way.tote_unicorn_gold

Save the Dates

I was asked to design Save the Dates for digital distribution (the bride-to-be wanted to email them to friends and loved ones so that she can spend more money on the wedding invitations). After a few sketches, she approved this design and layout:

 

I created this design that features Peonies, a favorite flower of the couple.

The design was created using original floral illustrations and existing fonts.

My Funny Valentine

I’m always looking for fun, unique greeting card ideas. I came up with this one a while ago, but thought this was as good a time as any to share it with you! It is inspired by the TV show Arrested Development.

This is a fun, silly card to give to a VALENTINE, GAL-entine, or someone who loves Arrested Development.  It is available in my etsy shop, printed on white or craft paper.

RIP Starman

 

“The stars look very different today…”

 

If you know anything about me (or have ever taken a road trip with me) you’ll know that I LOVE  David Bowie. He has been a favorite of mine ever since I saw the film Labyrinth as a young girl.

 

I remember one of the first items I ever borrowed from the library by myself was an audio cassette of Let’s Dance. I listened to that tape for hours. I had been raised on a wholesome mix of Motown and The Beatles. This Bowie fellow really rocked my world. The next day,  I rode my bike to the library and checked out all the other Bowie albums they had available. From then on, I’ve been a huge fan.

I was so excited for with the news of Black Star this weekend.

Today, I am heartbroken over the news of David Bowie’s passing. My heart goes out to his family, his friends, and his fans. A small tribute to one of my heroes.

Reindeer Games

The holidays are fast approaching! (Can you believe it is already December?!) And Christmas music has been on the airwaves for weeks now.

I’ve been decorating the store (and my apartment) with all manner of cute woodland creatures and snow people.

This little Reindeer was drawn using my trusty Copic markers and pens, Papermate Flair pen, Sharpies, and Prismacolor. A little bit of chalk marker was used for some of the white highlights. I plan on drawing these much larger and reproducing them for decorations around the store. Stay tuned!
