Pizzelles!


One of my favorite treats over the holiday season is pizzelles, yum!

I've designed a pizzelle notecard and ornament just in case anyone likes them as much as I do.

They're on Etsy today!



If you are in the Philadelphia area, be sure to stop by Philadelphia Independents on Sunday, December 7th for a holiday open house. I'll be there with a  little pop-up shop, and there will be hot cider and cookies!

Ornaments & Holiday Update

 If you follow me on Instagram, or if you attended the Fall Art Star Craft Bazaar you've probably already seen my ornaments. I figured I'd post them here for everyone else. These ornaments are also available on Etsy.

I'm going to have a very busy December!
If you're in the Philadelphia area, check out some of these events:

I was super excited today, when The Art Dept. posted a photo from City Paper's Gift Guide. Some of my prints were included in the photo! I went and grabbed a copy right away:

I hope everyone's getting ready for a great Thanksgiving! I feel funny posting about December when I haven't had turkey yet.

Bluebirds

Hi everyone!

I haven't updated for ages, but I've been busy!

These little bluebirds were drawn as a wedding gift for my cousin who loves birds.

Here's a close up:


And here's a look at my preliminary drawing:

These bluebirds have been added as a print and brooch to my Etsy shop.



I want to thank everyone who came out to see me and By Yivvie at the Fall Art Star Craft Bazaar! It was a lot of fun to meet you. I'll have my schedule for December posted on Thursday... there's lots of fun events coming up!

Summer Update

It's been a busy summer!

Starting in June, I've been stocked by VIX Emporium in West Philadelphia. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by to see all of the great hand made items in this wonderful store.


I participated in Phair on July 5th with Yvonne of By Yivvie. She makes the cutest stuffed toys; you can find them on Etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/yivviepants . It was fun to be in Headhouse Square on fourth of July weekend... Philly is really into Independence Day!


Last weekend I was honored to be part of the line up for the Art Star Pop-up Market at the very new Spruce Street Harbor Park. This park is one of the most exciting things to come to Philly this summer. There are some pictures below, but you should really visit because they don't do it justice.


I'm going to be at the Art Star Pop-Up Market again on Saturdays, August 9th and 16th. There's a market every week this summer; you can see who's vending at www.artstarphilly.com/popup .

Although I've been busing printing, filling orders, and going to events, I haven't made enough time for drawing! I'm hoping to have more new work posted in August; stay tuned!

Hedgehog Tea Party

I'm going to be an aunt (again!). I already have two wonderful nephews, now I'm going to have a niece! I just went to my younger sister's baby show, and gave this illustration as a gift. There will be a matching one soon, so stay tuned.

Spring Update

I've been busy this spring! So busy, that I just realized today I haven't updated my blog for a while. I wanted to share what I've been up to for the past month.

I have two wonderful new stockists here in Philadelphia.

In Old City, my products are available in the new store, Philadelphia Independents. They're located at 35 N 3rd St. The pictures below were taken at their grand opening last Friday:

In South Philadelphia, I'm stocked by Knack. They're located at 1726 E Passyunk Ave. East Passyunk is full of lots of great shops and restaurants, and is one of my favorite parts of Philadelphia.

I had the opportunity to participate in two really fun craft markets.

On May 3rd I went to Go West Craft Fest in The Woodlands in West Philadelphia. The setting was absolutely beautiful! There were a ton of people, great vendors, and live music all day long.

On April 26th I participated in Crafty Balboa April Showers. This was in conjunction with Flavors of the Avenue, and was right in my neighborhood on East Passyunk. I couldn't have asked for a better day!

Currently, I have some original work hanging up in Gleaners Cafe and Gallery right in the Italian Market. If you go, make sure to order a "Baby's Mama" ... that's a bagel sandwich with tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and pesto mayo...mmmmm!

Upcoming Events:

  • If you are going to the Art Star Craft Bazaar this weekend, be sure to visit the Art Dept at booth #3. They'll have some of my stuff, as well as other great handmade goods from Philly artists.
  • I'll be at Phair on July 5th sharing a space with the wonderful By Yivvie ... Philadelphia's the best place to be on Fourth of July weekend; come say hello!

Butterfly Brooches and Notecards

I listed some new things on Etsy today, just in time for Mother's Day!

 

 I painted these little butterflies, and created brooches and cards from the illustrations.


They are available on Etsy, these events, and the soon to be open store, Philadelphia Independents.
