I'm excited to be re-opening my Etsy artwork shop very soon! It is one of my early 2012 goals. As much as I LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. designing stamps, I also really enjoy making special pieces that are all mine:).

I have a few pieces still in the works, but hope to open in the first week of Jan! I have peeks of new stamps coming soon, too...for those of you who are waiting! I'm adding a couple older girls, so stay tuned! I'll try to have some posted by tomorrow. Just a teaser:).

One thing I struggle with is custom art. It takes an unbelievable amount of time for me to complete. (I still have two pre-Christmas ones I'm finishing sketching.) Between being a wife and mama (which always comes first), running my own business, chores, family nights, etc...it is hard to find the extra time to spend on those pieces.  I have thought a lot about how to handle these requests. And hopefully come up with a decent solution. I seriously considered stopping them altogether, but I have a hard time telling people no:). So. I'm going to offer many of my new artwork prints in a variety of colors. Hair, eyes, skin tone. This way, I have a handle on it, but customers can still have a little say in making it their own:).

I'm so excited about the new pieces. I couldn't fall asleep until 5am this morning:). Just so much going on...it's hard for a girl to settle down and get some shut-eye!

  24. I've recently stumbled upon your digi stamps and blog and I must say WOW! Lovely. Every time I look at your girls, they remind me of Brittany Murphy. Not sure why. Also, where can I take a peek at the Sisterhood of Witches Series. My sisters and I call each other witches and would love to possibly create something for them with those images, if possible.

  25. @ Cleota,
    I am going to revise them a little, I think and put them out again this spring. I was gonna 'retire' them completely, but i thought it would be fun to re-do them in a slightly different style. They are done after my sisters...so might even get them in on the design a little:).

    Thanks for asking! xoxo
