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​ ❤️​

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!

New winter holiday greeting cards coming soon!

I’m back from Japan!

Even though I hate saying good bye to my family and friends 😦 it’s nice to get back to my life and normal routines here in Seattle.

(I’ll share some of our favorite moments from our trip next week, so stay tuned for that ;))

The winter holiday season is fast approaching, and I’ve created several new holiday greeting cards for you!

Coming to my shop on November 1st.

Are you known for delicious holiday cookies? Decorating cookies on paper was much easier than decorating them in reality 😀

Holiday season can be busy and overwhelming. I wanna take a walk in this quiet, winter forest. How about you?

And let’s not forget all the fun presents! I kinda wish I had all these wrapping papers 🙂

I’m excited to present to you a new Hanukkah card this year! At one of the shows, someone told me this was the most beautiful Hanukkah card she’d ever seen. Aw ❤

And, last but not least, 2018 is the Year of the Dog! Look at these adorable dogs in sweaters. I want to hug them all ❤

These adorable cards will be available in my Etsy shop on November 1st.

Hope you love them 🙂

2018 Happy Beautiful Day Calendar is here!

I designed a new wall calendar for 2018, and it’s available in my Etsy shop now!

I love creating calendars because it makes it so easy to bring in beautiful art in your everyday life.

It’s got 12 full-color watercolor illustrations of whimsical floral bouquets accompanied by brush-lettered positive messages.

I wanted to make a calendar with lots of bright colors. I’m confident I achieved that goal 😀

Some of the paintings were from my daily painting practice earlier this year. (You can see my creative process in this post.)

It’s 5″x8″, which is a perfect size for your office or studio and handy for shipping to your loved ones, too.

I chose to incorporate a phrase into each month that’s encouraging and uplifting. I was thinking “what do I want to hear? what cheers me up?”

I worked with a local printshop, and the calendars turned out so beautiful ❤

I sold out of last year’s calendars in early December, so I ordered a bunch more for this year. Lots of them have already been going out to various shops and customers, so don’t wait too long to get yours if you’ve been wanting one!

I’m going to have these at several craft shows this fall/winter, and if you don’t live in the Seattle area, you can purchase them in my Etsy shop here. I ship internationally, too!

Have a happy beautiful day!
