I heart Sharon Montrose

Wow! Sharon Montrose has just listed some new photos in her etsy shop. They are so cute, I especially like theses bunnies. I think I am developing a thing for bunnies, they're becoming more common in my sketches - so far I haven't painted any, but I don't think they're too far away!

Stephanie Fizer

I have been in love with the illustrations of Stephanie Fizer for quite a while, thought it was time to share.. Stephanie currently has free shipping on everything in her shop until Feb 20th. Click on the pic to visit her shop. She also has a blog! Make sure you check it out.

I am so absorbed in all of the wonderful things in blogland lately, and the best thing is all the lovely people behind the arty blogs. I am making some wonderful friends in the online community who are so encouraging to me - I hope that one day I can be just as encouraging and helpful to somebody else!

I "heart" Sock Monkeys!

I was at a craft show a few days ago and fell in love with some little sock monkeys. Here are some I've found in Etsyland. Cute, cute, cute.

I "heart" Vol25!

Thought it was about time I shared one of my 'hearts'! There are so many Illustrators out there that inspire me.. Anyway - it seems as though I am the last person to discover this particular little corner of the etsy world. Vol25 is a shop filled with delighful drawings, and I discovered that the voice behind the shop - Jessica, and I have a few things in common.
  • We are around the same age.. I am still a bit younger (for some reason I don't like people in the online etsy/blog community to know my age.. more about that another time!)
  • We both like to please customers, Jessica stating that "a heartfelt customer testimonial is just about the greatest payment you can receive". I agree. And.. I also enjoy customizing work for people.
  • I am also self taught, and inspired by things around me - every day.
  • I also enjoy cooking.
  • And most of all, I agree that sleeping in should be made a sport.. I would be an Olympian! :)

So make sure you check out vol25, just click on the pic below.. it will take you right there!
