Fisher Price Little People Jumble

We had a wonderful Father's Day Weekend! I hope you did too! We went to visit Tom's family, his dad, Homer and stepmom, Jeanette returned HOME from their Florida place earlier in the week. We ate too much, played Texas Hold'em, and enjoyed the beautiful weather. I'm very thankful for Tom's family, he has 4 brothers and a sister. I really only have my mom and sister on my side, so it's nice to have them and all his cousins, nieces, nephews etc.
Jeanette had this sweet little Playskool school set and it brought back memories of my childhood. Ellie really enjoyed playing with it too!
The girls bought Tom a bird feeder and a birdhouse for all his outdoor friends. Rachel painted a family portrait and I painted a horse race on canvas. His outdoor BAR needs some decor and this should help! I'll post pics later this week.

Kelly B. Rightsell has a blog!

So I was checking out blogs a while back, one blog leads to another and so on and guess where I ended up... none other than a NEW blog by Kelly B. Rightsell! If she's not a household name in your home, she is in mine. The woman knows how to run a business! I don't know anyone in my area that has kids and DOESN'T own some of Kelly's adorable artwork. I've always loved her brand. Her designs are on everything from prints to stuffed lovelies to rugs! She is MY rockstar! Please please please run over to her blog and welcome her to blogland! Show her some love and encourage her to blog more!

under the sea party

This is the rough sketch for Ellie's 3rd birthday party invitation. She wanted a spongebob party and there will be a few spongebob elements but the overall theme is "Under the Sea".

Kid's Keyring on 2 blogs

Here are the links to 2 blogs that have written about my kid's keychains. One was a purchase from my Etsy shop while the other was a winner of a giveaway. Please hop over and read their posts. They are 2 very nice women with great blogs! I can't thank them enough for being so kind! I will be posting about another artist next week, you won't believe who it is! 
I need help with my pictures. I'm at a 100% positive feedback in my Etsy shop, but the comment I get almost every time is that the keychain is a lot bigger than the recipient thought it would be. I have it in my description that the size is 1 1/2" wide but it really looks bigger in person. I think ping pong ball or golf ball size is a close size comparison. I've been trying to think of a creative way to photograph them with a well known object for size comparison but nothing I can think of is Pretty! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Have a glorious weekend!

PVE DESIGNER... Patricia

As soon as you read this post RUN over to the PVE Design blog and introduce yourself to Patricia. This multi talented designer,illustrator,mom,writer has become very special to me. She was the first person I met when I started blogging (oh so long ago!). She has given me so much motivation and inspiration! Her designs are bright and beautiful, but then so is she! She was born in Kentucky(southern girl!) and currently lives in New York with her husband and 3 children. She does a lot of custom illustrations, my favorites are her illustrations of homes, they are fantastic! She can do anything you can dream up!  
Patricia was also the first to jump in the 29 day giving challenge with me. She has a very giving spirit. Little did I know I would be receiving a gift from her! Look what arrived the other day... 

                    She sent 2 of each card (I can send one and KEEP one)!
                                                      Love the note!
                             The sweetest little cards and envelopes ever!
                                            I love the variety of designs!     
I plan on framing one of each of the cards and sending the others to friends and family! Please take the time to read more about this talented lady. She is amazing!
