Christmas cards have been done since before Thanksgiving - I’m ahead of schedule this ear! (Unlike last year 🤫)
•
I used the average-quality envelopes that came with the cards since I didn’t have extra cash to buy nicer ones, but the Ziller Cranberry ink I used hardly bled at all. Yay! A quick spray of holly filled in with gold, a touch of gold and red in the return address & seal, and these babies are ready to go!

If you hate addressing all your holiday cards, send them to me! I’ll make ‘em pretty for all your family and friends! There is still time!

“Time passed, and pain turned to memory.” Helena Bonham Carter as the narrator (and later the fairy godmother) speaks this line towards the beginning of 
the live action Cinderella, after Ella’s mother has died and we see Ella grow into a young woman. •
I had Ziller’s beautiful Wisteria ink and a vision to pair it with a bleeding watercolor representation of Ella’s 1950’s-era glass slipper. That turned into this, with blue and purple butterflies flitting away with the fading colors, then some glitter glue to catch the light.

Some closer details of this Bible verse piece. My client told me the her friend likes roses and the color orange, so I combined both elements to create this little corner detail and paired it with brown lettering so the colors wouldn’t compete.

How much does this papa love his little girl? So much that he spent a month working with a calligrapher to create a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork on which to display his heartfelt poem. 💛

What a blessing to be so loved! 💚 What a blessing to be part of such a sweet and loving gift. 💙 What a blessing to be a blessing! 💜

(Wait for it to focus - it’s coming! 😂)

I recently had a conversation with my mom about the difference between the words “simplicity” and “simplify”, so that we might determine which better suited her purposes. We decided that “simplicity” is a state of being, exhibited by lack of life-clutter and generally a low-maintenance existence; whereas “simplify” is an action word which prompts or requires movement to fulfill. Ergo, we must simplify in order to achieve a lifestyle of simplicity.

What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

A new angle for this recent commission. Love the way the colors blend together, especially in the blue/green and green/yellow. .

The Bible is the best source I have for encouragement and strength in life’s toughest moments. When your soul can do nothing but cry out in anguish and your lips cannot form words to express the sorrow - where can we turn? In my own loss and heartache, when the world is shaky, my faith has been firm ground.

This piece is destined for a mama whose baby is not expected to survive, and I hope it will somehow turn her heart towards the One who holds her and her baby close. 🧡

It’s time to reveal the most recent commission I’ve completed! You may have seen a while back a glimpse of this canvas, but I’m not being coy anymore. Here it is!

16x20” watercolor canvas with great swaths of colors everywhere and a love letter from a father to his daughter for her birthday. S W I P E to see the ✨shine✨ of this incredible liquid gold pen!

Last call for Santa letters! I’ve gotta ship them off to Anchorage for the North Pole postmark soon, so if you’re interested in a #letterfromsanta for 2018, send me a message!  I’d love to make this holiday season extra cheerful for your kiddos.

A little wax-sealing fun for your Saturday - and I discovered yesterday the most irresistible mossy green wax which looks fabulous with white tissue paper and my new business cards. 😍 Gonna be using that more for packaging!
•
I’ve been getting requests for more videos, so I’m trying to throw a few more into the mix. I have to figure out camera angle and decent lighting (all my videos are shadowy and yellow🤦🏻‍♀️), so please bear with me! And if you can give any tips on phone tripods, macro filming, lighting, etc, I’d appreciate it!

Sometimes I find myself venting within a prayer and I have to smack myself back into the realization that prayer is not an opportunity to tell God how I think other people or situation should be changing - it’s an opportunity to ask God how I can be changing or how I can change a situation. It’s not my job to fix people, but I can get counsel from the Counselor to learn and grow; to gain strength for another battle; to rely on Him when I don’t have the energy or knowledge to keep going. .
