Happy Holidays to you and yours!
Hello and happy Friday! It’s getting to be that holiday time of year…can you feel it?
I am a lover of the holidays, but not the holiday stress…as I’m sure you are too! 😊 Part of what I love about the holidays is a lot of the cheer that runs around, so I’ve been making a bunch of holiday gifts with that in mind for the people in my life, as well as a few custom ornament orders. I was even getting into full holiday mood with “Santa Baby” playing through my head…and then it hit me—I really should just share these custom holiday goodies as an option in the shop!
It’s that time of year…the holidays are coming, the joy is high (though this year, there’s a lot of stress in the mix, too, eek!). But, it’s still a perfect and likely necessary time to pause and reflect on what we’re grateful for, don’t you think?
So, first and foremost, I want to say THANK YOU for being part of my journey. I am honored and delighted to get to make pretty things for wonderful people, whether it be for a gift you’re giving or a gift just for you. It makes me so darn happy to get to combine lettering and painting into something that will bring you a smile! 😊
That’s the main reason I decided to run a Black Friday Weekend sale this year
As the PSL (plant stake lady) who loves PSLs (pumpkin spice lattes), heck yeah, I’m all about pumpkin season! What about you?
I’ve always been a fan of pumpkins nearly everywhere—except in pumpkin pie, I know, weird—so it seemed like a no brainer last year that I should start lettering on pumpkins. I gave up carving them so long ago, and am forever bent on lettering on anything that isn’t paper…so when I realized I could letter directly on pumpkins, I was quick to launch a few Halloween and Fall themed designs. These faux pumpkins made of craft foam were sturdy enough to last for many seasons, and came just in time for a couple craft fairs and farmers’ markets I did. I just loved how the hand lettered pumpkins added the sweet and fun joy of peppy hand lettering to an item more traditionally used for scare tactics or food making!
