do you live with a creative genius?

Sometimes it can be a challenge. After all, we creative types can be very demanding and fickle…”Fetch me my paints! No, my watercolors! Now bring out the crayons and markers!” 

I had the young art prodigy in mind when I created this new tee shirt, printed with the words creative genius.

My original illustration is on a white cotton tee. They’re available in two styles and nine sizes.

funny joke, free gift, and a fun poll

What does a witch use to keep her hair in place? (answer at the end of this post).

Here’s a Halloween-themed free gift. When you purchase Vintage Wish (my Christmas 2008 templates) or Hip to Be Square (my square birth templates) below, you’ll receive this cute little witch, an original that I drew by hand. She’s a Photoshop brush. You’ll love stamping her on cards, custom candy wrappers, and other festive goodies!

This offer only lasts until Halloween though!

I made this little tag.

Thank you for reading, everyone! I am so happy with all of the the great comments and emails I receive about the blog.





p.s. the answer is scare spray. Goofy, I know. I get my jokes from my mom. Please take my Halloween costume poll below!

Welcome! I just know you’re going to love it here.

Hello, friends. If you haven’t subscribed yet, please do that now so you don’t miss a thing.

You might have noticed that I’m having a bit of an identity crisis (my name change). I am starting to gradually re-title my online places (flickr and etsy) with my married name…because I’m getting married this September *gush*! So yep, it’s me. Same girl, new name.

I aspire to post on this blog EVERY DAY. My favorite artists who blog do it all the time and I think that’s what makes them fun to read. My current favorite is Mariah McCormick. Ooo! That reminds me…I hope that I start getting a whole bunch of subscribers. When that happens, you might want to be featured here. I would LOVE that. So just give me a shout! Leave a comment here or email me at  I am inspired by all kinds of art; photography, painting, jewelry making, sewing, music. So help me share the love.

My new set of 5 x 5 card templates are coming soon. I will sell them right here! I’m also going to film myself painting because I’ve had several requests for that. I’ll do a little dialog while I’m painting and it should be a ton of fun! That reminds me, do you have a flip video camera? I’m thinking of buying one soon. I’d love to hear your review. And flip just introduced mino. Even tinier and even better quality? Sweet.

That’s all for today. Ta ta!
