The Winning Print!

Blogging, Design

I just wanted to share this print that I created for the winner of the last sponsor spotlight giveaway! I was really proud of how this turned out! I also figured I could also share a bit about my creative process this way as well! Since, as an artist it's fun to share with people how you work, since every artist works a bit differently on projects. We all have…

Sketchbook Diaries #8


It's been a while since the last sketchbook diaries. I've decided that I'm going to do one a month, so I can focus on other posts. (and book reviews!) I haven't been sketching as much as I used to, so I'm sharing some images from my older sketchbooks today! I need to get back in the grove and start doing sketching on paper instead of just digital illustrations, which I've…

Bookworm Does: Daily Planner

Design, Life

After making my editorial calendar, I got to thinking that I should make myself a planner as well. I'm currently not using one, but I really ought to, especially since I keep confusing weekends/dates and what not. My dry erase calendar in the kitchen can only help so much. I also wasn't in the market to purchase a 60+ dollar daily planner/binder. Well, I'm a designer, so why not just…

Editorial Calendar

Blogging, Design

As I work on further growing my blog and on staying more organized (so I stop forgetting/mixing up dates) I've been working on a little personal design project, which is creating a really kick-butt editorial calendar for myself! I used to just keep to-do lists of blog posts in a little notebook and then I'd post ahead in Blogger by making empty drafts on whatever day I wanted a post…

Sketchbook Diaries #7


It's that time again to take another gander through my sketchbooks as we tumble into fall! A sketch a day keeps the lazies away....or something like that!  What have you been drawing lately?  (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','//','ga'); ga('create', 'UA-44399366-1', 'auto'); ga('send', 'pageview');

Sketchbook Diaries #6


Let's take another gander into my sketchbooks! Sometimes I scribble in pencils and other times I scribble with colored pencils. Sometimes it's even crayons. Or pens. Or markers! It all depends what's lying around! 

Gtech Event!!

Design, Life, Local Flavor

My design won the contest!! Yay! So I got to attend a little block party and get it screen printed onto a shirt! It was a lot of fun, and I love the design as well. It was fun to create! Screen printing is super cool! I've never done it before, but it looks pretty sweet. I'd love to be able to screen print other designs! I know of some…

Cocktails – #SummerBloggerChallenge

Blogging, Design

One of my favorite things is champagne! I love mimosas and bellinis the best, but there are other drinks you can make with champagne! So whenever you got some bubbly, you can try out some of these! I also wanted to give my design skills a go and try making a cute little info graphic styled poster! I'm thinking I might add a few more to this later and use…

Sketchbook Diaries #5


It's been a while since I've posted a Sketchbook Diaries post! I almost forgot about it!! I've been carrying around my mini sketchbook recently, and haven't had much time to scribble illustrations! I've been doing a lot of logos and brochures! I also slapped some new stickers on my sketchbook! The cat is from Tiny Tabby, they support cat shelters!  Got some old scribbles, some brochure scribbles, and random new…

Summer DIY – #SummerBloggerChallenge

Blogging, Design

When I started this blog, I had the idea that I would do a bunch of DIY posts...but that never seemed to happen. So, I'm actually really glad that the summer blogger challenge has a DIY post prompt! I chose to put my sewing to the test, as I used to sew almost regularly...before I became busy and stopped wanting to drive 30 minutes to the nearest Jo Ann only…
