Did you think the blog had gone dormant? I’m sorry that I’ve been away so long. I’ve been so busy with exciting new painting commissions and custom logo commissions that inspire me! So I have this spare minute today and thought I’d share them with you…
12 x 12 canvas painting for Kristie Serra
11 x 14 watercolor for Sarah Wheeler
and here are some logos…
this one is available in my shop
my latest custom designs:
Kristen is so sweet. I love the colors she chose and the type of imagery she likes. We are still working on her custom logo and she is very pregnant…what a trooper!
This colorful little number is for Darla Petrich. I love any design request that involves hand-drawn elements!
My new design blog is coming soon. I have my Tofurious wordpress template set up (what a process) and now I’m working on the look and feel for the silly thing : )
With only four days until Valentine’s Day, I’m offering something very sweet. Here is a free 5 x 7 template for you! This card is a completely customizable layered psd file, just like all of the templates I sell. Please use it for whatever you’d like (personal or commercial), and please credit me and my blog.

You can also purchase your choice of my template sets; Vintage Wish, Hip to be Square, and the Garden.
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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
