Etsy shop update: New Mr. Darcy photos


My Mr. Darcy print has been needing some new photos. The ones I had in the shop just did not do him justice. Now that Spring is on it's way we get plenty of sunny days and plenty of photo opps. I bought this frame at Target. I think it suits Mr. Darcy, does it not? I took the photos in my bedroom in case you are wondering. Yes, I have amazing wallpaper in my room. Lucky me the previous home owner had an appreciation for vintage florals. You either love this wallpaper or you hate it.

What side of the fence are you on? And while you are at it how do you like the new photos? =)

Drool Worthy: Chalk Lettering by Dana Tanamachi



This is what I am currently drooling over. I got the link from a friend on Twitter a little while back and I just can't stop staring at these gorgeous images. You all know how much I love type. This is just AH-MAY-ZING. I want to be BFF's with Dana Tanamachi. Seriously. And I want to paint all my walls in chalkboard paint so I can practice and hopefully - one day - be as amazing as this.

Strawberry Bloom Flower Custom Cupcake Toppers - $34 for 24

I stumbled upon an Etsy shop called millalove today that I had to share with you. Not only are the handmade paper goods in this shop adorable but the photos are lovely too. So reminiscent of Spring and renewal. I can almost feel the warm sun and hear the ice cubes clinking in my glass of lemonade as I sit on my porch. Maybe I am just imagining it all because I am so over winter! 

Whatever it is, I'm glad I found this shop - just the sunny, cheerfulness I needed today. =)

OOAK Hand Drawn Moleskines - To list, or not to list


Worked on this Moleskine recently. I was itching to get back into drawing after mailing my Sketchbook Project and I had some blank ones lying around. I was thinking of doing OOAK moleskine's like this with different sayings and quotes, similar to my Sketchbook Project pages, and selling them on Etsy.



I would scan the art of course so it's not completely lost to me forever. It's hard enough to let go when you have a copy. Would you like to see these in my shop? =)

*Update* I have since listed this lovely moleskine and it sold to a lovely customer that is raving about her purchase. So glad it went to a good home. Stay tuned because I will be making more!! =)

**Update The original moleskine has long since sold in my Etsy shop but you can now own a print of the middle photo available at my Society 6 shop. Get yours here. I will also be making more of these moleskine's so stay tuned! Thanks for all of your feedback and love! xxoo Liz
