Got Cards? Valentines, that is...

Pin It

Got 'em! I am so extremely proud of how they turned out and I can't wait to get working on some more!  The paper is a vibrant white, the ink is just gorgeous...a little bit shiny....AH! There's nothing like something *hot* off the presses!  One day soon, I'd like to have a more "pleasant" online store....until then, thank you for your patience with me through this process.

They're all shiny and crisp and white and are waiting for a new home!  Give these little cuties to your cuties this Valentine's Day! (*wink*)

The shipping (if need be) is on me, guys!

Each pack contains 8 card stock weight, double sided, unfolded 4.25" x 5.5" cards and 8 white envelopes.

Some Sneek Peaks...and Freebie Downloads!

Pin It
I finally saw my blog on a different monitor than my laptop.....! Wowsers! That's some crazy lime green! I'll have to tweak that a bit....that was *not* the look I was going for! Sorry to your eyeballs! HA! As I say, I'm learning....

Introducing to you the latest logo I've been working on.  "Flying P Stitchery" is an extension of my sister's "Flying P Wild Rags".  The P with the nifty little squiggle underneath is a reference to their family's horse brand, 'Flying P'.  Pretty cute, hey?! She's got a lot of wonderful ideas coming your way in the future.  Keep checking back...I'll keep you up to date. Please check out her group on Facebook (Flying P Wild Rags) to see the cowboy neck rags she's currently making.

AND I've finally got my Valentines to the printer! Hip Hip Hooray! I'm so excited to see the actual printed product.  I'll pick them up tomorrow and once I've got my paws on them, I'll let you know how you can get your paws on them too!! In the meantime, here's a preview of the little cuties.

Blue background is for display purposes only.  Unfolded, Double sided cards 4.25"X 5.5''

And *finally*....(thank you for reading this far!)...I have another set of freebies for my loyal followers. ;)  Blackberry, iPhone, and Desktop Wallpapers with the digi drawings of my Valentines. I hope you enjoy them!!!

So Much to Do, So Little Time...

Pin It
...Isn't that the story of life?! I often tease that work and home gets in the way of my hobbies....a thought which I'm sure I'll be struck with lightning for thinking! HA!
My painting ideas stay just that...ideas.  One day when my kids are older and not so apt to want to "help", I have more ideas to finish than I will ever have time for.  This is a painting/paper piecing project I've been working on since the summer time.  I have plans for it to go somewhere in our house. (I have very little hanging on my walls, contrary to what you may expect!)  I tried to get back at it yesterday while my son was napping....of course my daughter had ideas of what I should write on it here and there with her Crayola Pip Squeak Markers...and she was cutting little pieces of paper for me that I'd catch her sticking to it in strange places with her glue stick. *Sigh*  I'm afraid I'll never get it done.  So here is a sneak peek at a work in progress.

The last digi-illustrations I posted, I'd intended to turn into Valentines.  Sadly, Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching and I haven't gotten very far.  I have to keep telling myself "there's *no* pressure" to do anything, really.  But once I get an idea in my head, it's hard for me to let it go. One day......

*And*....I've got another logo in the works...something else I'm awfully excited about! Nothing I can show you yet, keep checking back.

Thank you, everyone, for your support with my little adventure so far.  I so appreciate the feed back I've been receiving! I hope I have some really wonderful things to show you and share with you in the future!

A New Logo: Only Green Genes

Pin It

I can’t tell you how happy I am to have been given the opportunity to create a logo for one of the sweetest ladies I know! Through the years she has been dedicated to providing her family with products that are not just Eco-friendly, but body friendly too.  Now, she has decided  turn her passion into a business that helps others as well! 

Wanting to unveil my...I mean her...lovely little logo to you all!

A Sneek Peak!

Pin It
I tend to bounce around from "thing" to "thing" when it comes to art.  Lately, my "thing" has been digital illustration. I'm so excited now that I feel I have a style and can do it right. I've been doodling up a storm.  I have so many ideas, so little time etc etc. My intention eventually is to turn some of my digital illustrations into little note cards, frame-able prints etc.  Of course, the realities of life tend to dictate my priorities *wink* so we'll see how quickly that happens.

These are some non-colored/un-papered illustrations....just the bare bones templates that can now be turned into what ever I'd like them to be.  I was so happy with how they turned out, I wanted to share them despite the fact they're technically unfinished.  First I doodled the designs then turned them into vector illustrations.  Hopefully I can get back at them soon to bring them to 'life'.  See if you can guess what 'holiday' the first note card designs will be for! (I know.....I'm sooooo not sneaky!)

So Very Exciting!!!

Pin It
Eeeeeek!!! I can't believe I'm making my very first post on my *blog*. I'm somewhat embarrassed to tell you how long it took me to figure out how to get this silly thing up and running.  I didn't full appreciate how truly dumb I am when it comes to computers until I tackled a blog....or, more importantly, blog design.  I thought I'd start with a picture of my "Little Birds"...which I know you've all seen before...but I'm rather partial to the little dears.  I'm not sure how often I'll get this blog updated at first....but I hope to keep on top of it because I have lots of exciting things in store for "Peanut and Bean". (At least, they're exciting for *me*! Ha)
