Hey there! I wanted to give you a little update as to what I’ve been up these last few months. For those of you keeping up with me on Instagram and Facebook… I just want to say a big thanks to you! My introverted personality has been pretty intimidated by the all the various social media platforms over the years but a few months ago I decided to dive head first into Instagram (and continue on Facebook). I know my Followers count is not much, but despite my late start, those numbers are rising everyday. So please join the party and follow me on Instagram and Facebook if you haven’t already! I post 2-3 times a day, so you get a first-hand look at sketches that become stationery, custom projects, photos of my family, sales and more.
I’ve also been busy creating new designs! This cornucopia design has turned out to be one of my new favorites! I love sketching on the weekends (to keep drawing in the “fun and relaxing” category) and then perfecting it on my desktop. I had so much fun adding in all the little details and colors on this one! So on my way to look up how to spell cornucopia correctly, I discovered what it actually means. Did you know that a cornucopia is “a symbol of plenty consisting of a goat’s horn overflowing with flowers, fruit, and corn”? Me neither! I have to admit, the goat’s horn part cracked me up! 😂
I also finished up two versions of a whimsical Thanksgiving turkey. I’m not sure which one I like best, so feel free to weigh in! The red and brown one titled, Fall Turkey, is supposed to be a little more serious than the orange and yellow one titled, Thanksgiving Turkey, but they both look a little playful to me. I love how my customers send out Thanksgiving greetings, so I wanted to offer more options this year. Let me know what you think because I’m not quite sure what to make of them just yet. 🤔 If you look very carefully, you’ll see that I borrowed a few acorns from my cornucopia design and placed them on my orange and yellow turkey!
Christmas is coming folks! I’ll be sharing my new Christmas designs soon, but here’s a sneak peek at one… my Christmas Cactus Plants! Just ask my teenage daughters; cacti are all the rage right now. So I thought it would be fun to work them into a holiday design this year. I love the simplicity of potted plants in a row, cacti or not… any plants will do for me! Their shapes and textures vary but their shades of green are what keep them together. Kind of like a family, I suppose! Which one of these guys would you be? I might be the one on the far right… short with occasional flowers.🌺
Ok.. one more share. For all those girly girls out there, this one’s for you! My pretty Pink Unicorn design has been a hit with the little ladies! She was a delight to draw! Very unlike my Pink Llama drama last month, but that’s another story.😆 The flowers, stars, pink mane, and stripes may seem like it would be a bit too much for one design but every girl needs a lot of sparkle sometimes, right? Well, that’s all for now! Check my “new” items tab to see more. I hope to add to them in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
