New Navigation

On the drive home from the beach yesterday, I was listening to a podcast and had a revelation. For years, I’ve struggled with how to categorize my business. I say struggle because categories have evolved (and no doubt will continue to evolve) over time. There are vintage paper and vintage smalls, journals, drawing, coloring products and other artistic creations. But it occurred to me that all these things fall into two categories: Vintage Finds and Artistic Pursuits. So, moving forward, when you enter the Shop portal, you’ll find these two categories. Looking for vintage? Click on Vintage Finds. It will lead you to All Vintage Finds (to see the entire vintage collection) Paper (to see just the vintage paper) and Not Paper (to see all the other vintage items that aren’t paper like keys, metal letters and other smalls plus home decor) Feeling artistic and want to create or purchase completed artwork? Click on Artistic Pursuits. It will lead you to All Artistic Pursuits (to see all the artistic offerings), Coloring (to see the coloring products), Journaling (to see products for art journaling) and Handmade (to see items made by me).

I feel this is a good direction, but welcome your feedback once you’ve navigated through it. I’m always open to positive suggestions! #VINTAGEFINDS #ARTISTICPURSUITS

An interview about coloring + creativity

IMG_6472
Last year while on my beach vacation, I created most of the drawings for my coloring journal that was released last fall. Fast forward to today … I was just interviewed by the local paper, The Island Packet, about my book and creativity! One of my best cheerleader/friends set it up. Link to the video and print article coming later today or tomorrow. Link to purchase the coloring journal here. To celebrate, I’m taking $5 off each copy through July 4th!  Talk about things coming full circle … #CelebratingTheCreativeJourney in my southern makeshift studio-by-the-sea
