Making Pretty Things

I know, I know.  It’s been too long.

I’ve been busy with school, you know, but I’ve decided to make a conscious effort to work on disallowing my job being the all-encompassing end-all in my life.  That’s not to say that I don’t LOVE my job.  I do but I want more.  I need more or else I’m going to fizzle out.

I want to make pretty things.

Here’s what I mean.


This was one of those magic moments where the picture in my head looks like the end product.


For those who don’t know, this is a line from a Regina Spektor song.  It’s my go-to single lady (and that’s okay) line.  I started with the quote and then worked with the idea of having the fantasy coming out of the book like the story being bigger than the pages.


This design started the other way around.  I had the vision of the encircled deer and then was thinking, “huh, this looks peaceful.”

So, that’s all I can show for now because some of my other designs are being used on Christmas gifts and I don’t want to ruin any surprises. 🙂

Thanks for reading and looking.  I’ll try to be better.
