NEW Archival Canvas Prints in Shop!

It’s full-on summer mode here in Seattle.

That means blue skies, sunshine, and beautiful flowers everywhere.

Ok, this photo was not exactly taken in Seattle – we went to Orcas Island last weekend for a short visit.

We stayed at Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead, where Dave used to live for 7 years when we were first dating.

Such a magical place Orcas is… If you haven’t been there, I highly recommend you make a trip up there! It’s not that far from Seattle (about 2.5 hrs one way, including the ferry ride) but feels so far away from everything.

Plants and nature have been a big part of my creative inspiration.

Especially flowers, I can’t get enough of them!

I’m often daydreaming of converting our veggie gardens into flower gardens (don’t tell Dave!!)

So it is no wonder why I created 2018 calendars full of flowers and uplifting messages.

Though the calendars are long sold out, I turned 6 of my illustrations into 8″x8″ archival canvas prints for an art show I’m having at Tin Umbrella Coffee in South Seattle right now!

First of all, if you live in/hear Seattle, go visit this cute coffee shop this month and enjoy the artwork in person!

Plus, their coffee is amazing.

These canvas prints turned out SO nice.

The colors are so crisp and vibrant. And the canvas texture is oh so yummy.


It’s scratch and smudge resistant, so you don’t have to be super precious around it, which may be a plus if you have little ones around 😉

It’s got a metal piece on the back for easy hanging, too.

Since many of you live far away, I wanted to invite you to the show virtually and make them available for purchase online, too!

You can now enjoy the gallery and shop your favorite canvas art here

(** Please note that since I only have one of each prints, the artwork you purchase won’t be available to ship until the show is over at the end of July.)

Oh, and if you live in the US, shipping is FREE! Isn’t it exciting?

I hope you get to check out my work in person if you’re in the area, or online if you don’t live nearby 😊

Enjoy!

Fall & winter collection sneak preview 👀

I’ve been working very hard on my fall & winter collection, which debuts at Urban Craft Uprising Summer Wholesale Event on July 2.

(The event is open only to the retail shop owners and buyers, FYI).

And I thought you may enjoy a sneak preview today!

My customers and fans have told me over and over they love my sense of color 🎨

Well, that’s a good thing because bright colors make me happy, and I love playing with colors!

So in my new collection, I’ve incorporated a bunch of fun color palettes for you to enjoy.

Here are some bits and pieces of my new work!

Aren’t they fun?? 😍

Also, lots of animals in my new collection! (and animals on wheels nonetheless 🚲)

I didn’t plan it that way at first, but hey, who wouldn’t like adorable animals??

I’m just so grateful that I get to make art I love and help you connect with your loved ones through my art ❤

I’ll be sharing more sneak previews with you in the next few months, so stay tuned.

(Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram if you haven’t already, as I’ve been sharing my works in progress there, as well 😉)

My new collection will be available to purchase in my shop in the beginning of September.

And if you are not on my VIP list already, sign up to get an exclusive early-bird price when the new collection launches!

Have a colorful, happy day, my friend😘

Sweet giveaway is happening at Geeky Girls Knit!

Hi friend!

Let me introduce you to C.C . and Dami, the sweetest mother-daughter co-hosts of the knitting podcast, Geeky Girls Knit!

I met C.C. a couple of months ago when Tara Swiger (she does an awesome podcast for small business owners) was visiting Seattle.

We met for coffee and donuts (oh that raspberry donut from Mighty-O Donuts, tho! 🤤) and chatted about our businesses and self-care.

C.C. has this warm, super friendly energy to her and was very generous with sharing her own experiences with business.

I liked her immediately (it’s pretty instantaneous when I like someone 😀), and we’ve been friends online since then.

(BTW, I’m also obsessed with their new kitty, Pink Purl (I know), who makes a regular appearance on their Instagram feed.)

I’ve never met her daughter, Dami, in person yet, but she also is a generous, kind person from what I can tell 💕

So I was thrilled when C.C. asked me if they could do a product review for me and host a giveaway on their show!

You can watch/listen to the episode here.

The product review happens towards the end and don’t miss the information about the sweet giveaway there!

(The giveaway closes at the end of Tuesday, May 22nd, and the winner is announced on their show on the 24th.)

Enjoy 😊 Hope you win!

New art prints for spring 🌸

Some people argue that Seattle doesn’t have distinct four seasons, but I beg to differ!

Even though it’s still chilly out, the days are growing longer, and I can feel the spring is near! I can almost smell the cherry blossoms in the air 🌸

Just like changing your wardrobe, I like to update my gallery wall for the new season.

That’s why I wanted to remind you of my colorful new art prints that are perfect for welcoming in the spring in your home!

1) Self-care is not Selfish (8″x10″) 2) Welcome to the World, Little One (11″x14″) 3) Sail On (8″x10″) 4) Moonlit Mountains (8″x10″)

I can see these prints in your kids’ room, office, or bedroom. Really, any place you wanna add a little color and cheer would do 😉

They’re archival prints on a very nice fine art paper. Look at the velvety texture. Swoon!!

My customers often ask me if these are my originals. Well, not quite 😀 But I agree they look so good it’s hard to believe they’re not original.

You can browse all of my new prints in my shop here.

Enjoy!

Spring & Summer Collection is here! 💐

I turned 40 on Wednesday!! 🎈🎉🎊

I finished the Seattle Gift Show on Tuesday (which is a 4-day long gift trade show, very slow, long 4 days), so instead of having a big birthday bash, I had dinner with some of my friends at my favorite Japanese restaurant, Nishino. A perfectly delicious and low-key celebration.

I enjoy getting older – I’ve grown to care less and less about what people think (or learn that people aren’t actually thinking about you 😀) as I get older. So freeing ✨

As if you need another reason to celebrate, my spring & summer 2018 collection is now available in my shop!

{Clockwise from top left: Bunny Mug Easter | Father’s Day Empathy | Cupcake Father’s Day | Welcome to the World Baby Shower | Vintage Flower Vases Mother’s Day | Mother’s Day Empathy | Self-Care is not Selfish | Sail On, Graduation | Thinking of You Pink Bouquet | Sloth Happy Birthday}

{1. Self-Care is not Selfish Print, 8″x10″ | 2. Welcome to the World, Little One Print 11″x14″ | 3. Sail On, 8″x10″ | 4. Moonlit Mountains, 8″x10″ }

I’ve also added new notepad and wrapping papers to the shop, which are not photographed here 👆

Please note that I’ll be in Hawaii with my mom this coming week (!), so any orders that come in after January 27th will be shipped during the week of February 5th.

Here is to a new decade with lots more to celebrate!

p.p.s. I’m taking a much needed vacation this coming week – no new post from me next Sunday 😉

Love is in the air ❤️

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

I don’t do anything extravagant but write Dave a little note to tell him how much I appreciate and love him ❤️

I’m in a more celebratory mood around this time of the year anyway because there is New Year’s holiday, and then Dave and my first date anniversary (11 years!), and my birthday (I’m turning 40 next week!!), and then Valentine’s Day tops it all off.

I know it’s a bit early for Valentine’s Day, but I’m so excited to share my new Valentine’s Day card and notepad with you!

Aren’t they so ADORABLE? 😍

You can order your Secret Garden Bird Notepad here and the Secret Garden Bird Valentine’s Day Card here.

And, don’t forget these classic love designs 😉

{ 1. Secret Bird Garden Card / 2. Sea Otters Holding Hands Card / 3. Croc & Birdie We Belong Together Card / 4. Cat Violin Card / 5. Pink Alpaca Heart Card / 6. Red Flowers Love Card / 7. Iguana Flowers For You Card / 8. I Love You More Than Card }

FYI – I’m going to Oahu with my mom during the last week of January, so orders that come in after January 27th won’t go out until February 6th.

Have a love-filled day​ ❤️​

p.p.s. My new collection will be released next week! Keep your eyes peeled for my next post 👀

Spring & summer collection preview!

As soon as I finished the last holiday craft show in December, I started working really hard to prepare for the Seattle Gift Show, which is a semi-annual gift trade show.

The show is this coming weekend (EEEEK! 😱), and my goal is to release my spring and summer collection there.

Here are some of the new designs I’ve been creating that are going to be part of the new line!

I’m working on a few more designs as we speak – birthday, congratulations, and Easter, for example.

And, new notepads and wrapping papers are in the works, too! Woo hoo!

I’ll keep you posted on the progress and let you know when they’re available in my shop 😘

Stay tuned!

2017 Holiday Fabric Collection & Notepads in Shop!

Hi Friend!

My new winter holiday fabric/wrapping paper collection is now available in my Spoonflower shop!

Check out all the designs and colors ❤

{Triangle Forest: black | black/white | smoky blue | red | light blue/white | light blue | honey yellow | red/white | green/blue/yellow | blue/red/yellow }

{Cross Stitch: smoky blue | black/white | honey yellow | red |light blue }

{Cozy Pups in Sweaters : white }

​I love these simple coordinating designs ❤ They’re so clean and versatile but have the warm handmade feeling to it.

I’m thinking about making myself a tote bag with the red Triangle Forest fabric on the outside and black/white Cross Stitch fabric on the inside. You can purchase them in fat quarters, too, which are perfect for making tea towels!

Oh, and I just recently found out they have a sweet Fill-a-Yard deal where you can buy multiple designs that fit a yard of fabric so you can buy just what you need for the project you’re working on! It’s BRILLIANT.

{I played with their 1-yard cheater quilt template. I’ve never quilted before, but this cheater design may just work!}

And don’t forget, all of my designs are also available as gift wrapping paper and wall paper.

Your creative possibilities are endless… 🙂

(*Be sure to check out Spoonflower’s holiday shipping deadlines – their standard turnaround time could take 2 weeks or more, and I’d hate for you to have to pay extra for rush order!)

I hope you can handle more cuteness today because my new notepads are in my Etsy shop now!

{ Eat a Rainbow Market List / Succulent To-Do List / Cozy Pups in Sweaters To-Do List }

How adorable are these? I couldn’t be happier with how these turned out.

I’ve been “test driving” them at home, and it makes me smile every time I use it 🙂

These will make perfect stocking stuffer gifts and/or a little pre-holiday gift for yourself so you’ll feel more organized during the holidays!

And they pair so well with some of the other goodies in my shop, don’t you think?

(Pssst, I’m working on putting together some fun holiday gift bundles, so keep that in mind as you plan your holiday shopping! More to come next week.)

Oh, and don’t forget – you’ll get FREE U.S shipping on orders of $35 or more in my Etsy shop. Just use the coupon code “HAPPY35” upon checkout!

Thank you always for supporting my work 🙂 You rock!
