It is always a happy day when I can tell you about new products! It is even more exciting when I can tell you about them instead of teasing, and tell you that these new releases are shipping now and already appearing in stores! Today I want to give you a quick look at what is new and then next week come back with some new projects featuring them and include some videos too! [Read more…]

Happy December! Being a product designer and craft blogger, I sometimes have to share holiday projects way before the holiday, but for me personally, I just don’t begin feeling the Christmas spirit until December. We’ll get the tree out later tonight and do a little decorating. I may even start my holiday shopping this weekend. We are planning a very light and simple no stress holiday this year for gifts, so I might even be able to finish it in a day.
Speaking of simple and low stress, that is what I am planning for my holiday cards. I am going with simple there too- stamp, color, and layer.
This card features my Happy Holly Days stamp. I colored it with Copic Markers. I added a bit of Glossy Accents on the berries and clear Wink of Stella Glitter on the leaves and the word holly.
Low stress and simple. Fancy and elaborate is good too, but something in me is longing for simplicity this year. I end up stressed every Christmas, worrying if I have done enough for those I love and not really enjoying the season because of it. This year I am going to have a different kind of holiday. I am wishing you the same.
Hello friends! I wanted to pop in really quickly to share a link with you to a tutorial I shared this week on the StencilGirl blog. It features a page from my very long neglected art journal. It was so fun to create and it let me use every single color of ink! [Read more…]
This past week I spent Thanksgiving morning in my favorite comfy chair with my sketch pad and my pup. I was thinking of all the things I was thankful for in my life. Some of them are huge and some are small. I wrote out this lettering bit as I thought of those things. I love the way it turned out and decided that it would make a great coloring page. I wish I could have had it edited and ready to post on Thanksgiving, but reminded myself that we shouldn’t limit ourselves to a spirit of thanksgiving just one day a year. I hope that you will enjoy it and be reminded of all that you are thankful for as you color it.
