I was playing around with Picnik today and I made this little card! I’ve been thinking about doing digital collage style cards to add to my Etsy, what do you think of it? I’m looking for some feedback! Also, if you print photo cards/postcards, do you print them from home or do you get them from a printers? I don’t have a nice printer so I’m looking for a good printer online until I can get a nicer printer for the house. Who have you used before? Just popping in to say hello and I hope everyone is having a good weekend! Tucker and I are going to go to the Magic Bus Cafe in a little bit and I can’t wait for a veggie chili dog! If you live in or near Minneapolis-I HIGHLY recommend you checking them out. Cathy is an awesome lady and the dogs are ridiculously delicious!

I wonder what I should do with these little doodles…..it’s hard to think of different ways to utilize your pieces of work isn’t it? Any ideas?
I’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with Illustrator lately. I come back to it off and on to try and experiment with different styles and swatches and what sorts of things I can do to sell. Anyhoo, I am a super novice at it since I’ve never taken a class so I thought that maybe it would be fun to give some of my experiments as free downloads! I definitely don’t feel comfortable selling anything that I’ve produced but I don’t want them to just sit on my computer and not get any sort of feedback. So, anytime I do something new or come up with something fun I’m going to offer it here! Woohoo! Here is the first download, I designed it to be a desktop wallpaper but if you can think of any other uses let me know! Hope you enjoy it and I would love to hear any feedback, good or bad! Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend!
Good Morning Wallpaper:
I have been trying my best to work on and repeat this mantra to myself. I don’t remember where I heard it, but ever since we decided to move from Minneapolis to Chicago I’ve been thinking this over and over again. It’s a scary thing moving away from family and friends and out of your comfort zone. Chicago is a big place and I’m a small town girl-it’s hard to imagine that we’ll be able to harmoniously mix. I have a tendency to worry and dwell on what could happen. I’ve always been a “what if” person and it’s hard to change that when it comes to such a big adjustment. Every time I start to think about all the bad “what-ifs” I just try to remind and tell myself off all the good that can come from moving out of your comfort zone. I think about all the opportunities in a big city like Chicago. I think about all the new crafty friends I will meet and all the new experiences that Tucker and I will have together. Sigh…Thanks for listening to this little rant of mine. The time to move is coming up quick and I’m just trying to make it! Do you remember when you had to go out of your comfort zone? What helped you get through the hard times?
I’ve been working on a few things round here! There is a Rainbow of Stitches contest going on at Feeling Stitchy that I entered this piece in. You can enter in all the different color categories as many times as you would like! I love looking at their Flickr group at all the great things that people are stitching up. After I finished this I was inspired/wondering if people would like to have some embroidery patterns for pieces like this. There could be deer and other animals (woodland or not!) What do you think? Would you like to see this pattern? Would you like to stitch this up?
