Last Giveaway of 2013…

Okay everyone, one last hurrah before I go off and get hitched =) The wedding is on Saturday and I’m finally feeling like it’s all gonna come together… I’m a bit of a perfectionist and it’s been all about those tiny little details for the past few weeks. I’m so excited to get married to my best friend and can’t wait to celebrate with family and friends!

And why not kick it off with one last giveaway for the year? I met Lauren of Lladybird when she was announced the winner of a giveaway on Maddie’s blog. Both ladies have beautiful sewing blogs that you should definitely check out!

Lauren sent me photos of her three mini-prints hanging in her adorable sewing studio and they were so cute I thought it would be a great new opportunity to collaborate! Hop on over to her blog to enter. All you have to do is ‘like’ me on Facebook and let Lauren know what your favorite item in my Etsy shop is. That’s it! Good luck and I’ll see you all after the wedding =)

The Big Reveal…

It’s the end of the month and time for me to tell you that secret I’ve been keeping for the past few weeks…

I’m finally taking a leap of faith and opening up an Etsy shop to sell my illustrations!

This is something I’ve been thinking about doing for a long time… since 2009 to be exact. I had recently moved to New York and wanted to create a place to sell my illustrations, but school (and then work) got in the way and I never got around to listing anything in my shop.

Fast forward four years and nineteen days later, I finally have illustration prints and note cards up for sale! It’s just a start and there will be more to come but I wanted to showcase some favorites from my blog archives in addition to some brand new pieces that are making their debut in the shop.

I’m so excited, I can barely stand it! And now I don’t know what to do with myself. I’ve been working, working, working on everything to re-do my website and open the shop for the past couple of months and I just have to be patient and hope that it was all worth it =)

Sorry, that was a long one! Thank you so much for reading this, and thank you for continuing to come back to read my blog and see what new sketches I’m working up in my little studio. I am so grateful for the continued support and feedback I’ve gotten on my blog so far, you all keep me going… here’s to the next step!
