Happy February! Hope you’re having a great start of the new year so far 🙂
This year, I’m continuing to focus on making products (greeting cards, art prints, and calendars), and I look forward to sharing more behind the scenes look and new releases with you 🙂
Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I wanted to show you some of the love cards I’ve got in my shop today!
Ta da! Cute, yes??
I’m particularly happy with this “I Love You More Than” brush lettering card I created recently!
This design was born out of a doodle I made in my sketchbook one day. I was simply asking my fans on Instagram what they would say to their significant other if they were to tell them “I love you more than ____.”
I got a great response on that post and actually really liked the doodle lettering for it, so I turned it into a new greeting card design 🙂
(BTW, I gave it to my husband on our 10-year meeting anniversary a couple of weeks ago, and I said “I love you more than sweet potato fries!” :D)
When I design my greeting cards, I ask myself these two important questions:
1. Is this me?
I want to make sure my art reflects my style and voice – simple, whimsical, and has the childlike charm. Sometimes I draw something photorealistic (most likely by accident!) and it feels so unfitting to everything else I do, so I typically don’t share them even if they look good!
2. Does this have a happy vibe?
I want to make you happy with my art. Period. So I keep my imagery light and joyful. I might make dark and sad art as a personal exploration, but they don’t typically become my products.

p.s. I ship pretty quickly (usually within 1-2 days), so you still got time before the Valentine’s Day 🙂
