Cute Hello Pumpkin

Hey everyone! I can’t believe how fast November has flown by. I forgot to post this cute little pumpkin that I created this month. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating this illustration. I used Procreate to draw it out digitally and to letter “Hello Pumpkin”. This cute guy is available on prints and products in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with your friends and family.

Now & Zen Volume 2

Hey everyone! I’m excited to finally be able to share the the 2nd book in the series that I illustrated that is a part of a project that I have been working on with Strive 2 Thrive Coulee Region. I’m proud to present to you all Now & Zen Volume 2. It is a 5″ by 5″ 14 page Zentangle booklet printed on 10% Post Consumer Waste Paper. This book is made possible by Strive 2 Thrive Coulee Region and Ope Publishing based in La Crosse, WI. Vicki Miller started the non-profit in early 2020. Last fall, she came up with the idea to create a small booklet to help people have a way to relieve stress during these unprecedented times. The booklet is made up illustrations that include Zentangle and Zendoodling. After an intro from myself at the beginning of the book, there are full spread Zentangle illustrations with inspirational sayings and additional space after these pages to use as you feel needed. This book was super fun to make since I had the artistic help of my niece Brianna. She helped pick the themes, inspirational sayings and created the video to introduce the book.

If you would like to own a your very own copy of Now & Zen Volume 1 or Volume 2, please go to my shop page! The books are $7 plus shipping and we also have hats with the Now & Zen logo for $25 plus shipping.

2.You can draw and doodle in it. Use the drawings that are already in place in the book and use them as a starting off point to relieve stress. You can create your own Zentangle or keep adding on to the existing drawings.

3. You can use it for a fun way to journal. Write down your thoughts for the day, important dates, inspirational sayings or even personal goals. You can also add stickers or washi to make it a collage.

Briarwood Spirit Wear 2021

Hey everyone! School has officially started in my house last week. So this will be my boys first full week back to school. In the past couple years I have created spirit wear for the elementary school. This year I was asked to make an 80’s themed logo. I also created a couple of other options and the parents voted on the top two that they liked. The 80’s theme and a rainbow logo were the top two picks. These logos will be on tees and sweatshirts for the school. I also painted bulletin board for the PTA with the rainbow logo. Below is a pic of my boys and the bulletin board. I hope everyone has a great back to school!

Oh Sweet Baby Shower Invitation

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having a great summer. Its sure has flown by quickly! My boys are already starting school next week. Here is another custom invitation that I was asked to create over this summer. My client wanted to have a baby shower theme including desserts. Since they already knew it was going to be a boy, I created a handful of sweet treats with the color theme of blue, green and yellow. I really like how it turned out! If you need a custom invitation or art, please send me a message!

Grandparents Birthday Party Invitation

Hi everyone! Here is another invitation that I did recently. This invite was created for my husbands grandparents. They decided to throw a party to celebrate all three of them together since they are all having milestone birthdays. One of the grandparents requested that there was caricatures of each of them. So that is just what I did. I created little avatars that look like each of them. They turned out pretty cute. We were able to travel to Wisconsin to attend the party and it was great to see many friends and family. If you need an custom invitation made, send me a message! I love creating custom artwork!

Splash Party Invitation

Hey everyone! I am finally able to show you some invitations that I have worked on at the beginning of the summer. I usually don’t like to post the invitation until after the event has happened. One of the invitations that I custom designed was for a splash party. The family hosted a splash party on their front lawn to meet their new neighbors since they just moved to the area. I thought it was a cute idea. For the invitation, I decided to go with bight, fun and playful summer elements. I love how it turned out! It’s fun yet simple! If you need any custom art created, send me a message. I love creating custom artwork!

School’s Out For Summer

Hey everyone! I can’t believe it’s already the last day of school for my 2 kiddos. This year has been a roller coaster to say the least. Between virtual school, going in person, masks and getting Covid, they have thrived. I’m very proud with how they have handled it all. They have been counting down the days until Summer all week long. I’m looking forward to sleeping in and not being on a schedule. The boys are looking forward to swimming, traveling and playing with friends. It will be nice to finally have some normalcy this summer. Have a fun summer everyone!
