Addie is a beautiful princess who needs to find her prince.
And then she sees him…bug-eyed and beautiful.
She knows what she need to do to get her prince…
Well, he was asking for it!
She found her prince! the frog loved these kisses so much, he went on for more!
We had a great time watching the kids all dressed up. They were so interested in seeing all the kids in their costumes. Addie, however, became quite scared at some of the older kids and their gory costumes…poor thing. We didn’t stay long!
It has been a busy week full of drawing and shipping. I am still trying to balance it all…it’s a lot of work right now, but I am trying to streamline. I am getting there. If anything, I just love seeing each drawing come to life. I have so much in my head ALL the time, and so when it finally comes off the printer, I get so excited! Here are a few new ones:
Hope you all had a great weekend! Enjoy Hallowoeen!
We are back from our trip, and missing the festive autumn weather.
We had so much fun going to the pumpkin patch, the national zoo, seeing friends and just being outside in the trees. Addie and Ian were in heaven with Kaile, Nani and Papa. It’s so hard to live far away!
Getting home from
I had no idea!!! I couldnâ€™t stop laughing. It had been one of those weekends!
But, I am now back into the swing of things, and creating new prints! I have SO many drafted or in my headâ€¦I just canâ€™t keep up with it! I keep a notebook by my bed for the ideas I come up with before I fall asleep. I have to hurry and sketch them out or else I canâ€™t sleep. I am excited for what is to come. Lots of â€œsetsâ€ coming, and moreâ€¦moreâ€¦more!
Now we are looking forward to Halloweenâ€¦Addie is, of course, going to be a princess, and Ianâ€¦well, we still havenâ€™t found a frog costume. Frog prince that is:)
This has been an exciting week for me! Thanks to all of you for stopping by and visiting my shop. It has been a lot of fun. A bit of a whirl windâ€¦trying to learn the ropes amidst a lot of other things going on, but it has been great. I have made a lot of really great contacts, and met some really great people. It is really exciting to see other parents like my artwork and see that it speaks to them and their own children. That is why I am doing this: I just wish I could see the children when they get their pictures.
My sister Kaile is a horseback rider, and so of course we had to take the kids to see the horses…and the barn cat they discovered. Addie and Ian LOVE animals, and depite the funny pictures, addie is actually very natural with animals.
And with the shop open and successful I have also managed to get my artwork in my first boutiques! It is really exciting. The first is a DARLING place in Northern CA called â€œTeapot Partiesâ€ and the second is in Leesburg, VA called â€˜On a Whimâ€™â€¦a very vintage/ chic store with a lot of personality. I am so excited! My stuff will most likely be there by the end of the month.
So, a lot of learning going on here. I really just threw myself into this. I have at least a dozen more pieces I am just DYING to get printed, but that requires me being home. So, I will have to wait till next weekend. I just canâ€™t stop coming up with new stuff. That is the fun of itâ€¦there never has to be an end to this! It’s all just imagination!
Thanks again for all of your support and compliments. Itâ€™s great to think that my elephants and bunnies and little people are on the walls for other little children to enjoy. In some ways, I feel like a Santaâ€¦I just want to make children smile
Wow. What a week this has been. I knew it was going to be intense, but I don’t think I knew how much. I Have had such a great time getting to know new people as I have made my first sales, and received help from other ETSY artists regarding all the details of starting up.
Despite the rush of opening, we were able to enjoy the beautiful Utah autumn colors this weekend as we drove the Alpine Loop. Addie and Ian were so stimulated, that they couldn’t fall asleep believe it or not! (Well, Addie that is.) She stayed in her crib singing “I love the mountains, I love the rolling hills…. for 2 hours. It was so cute, but boy she was tired in the morning!
But I am SICK of Bob the Builder!
