"I Dream of Jeannie"

That Jeannie! She was always getting into mischief because of her jealous nature and misunderstandings!

Mary Poppins

"Rosy cheeks and everything!"
I always wished I could snap my fingers to tidy up my room, but alas... it never worked.

Craft Lake City

This weekend I participated in Craft Lake City's DIY Festival!
It was such a fun experience.
I shared a booth with my incredibly talented friend Melissa Moyle.
Melissa is a graphic designer that specializes in hand lettering.
We got a chance to meet a lot of great people as well as share and sell our art.
Each of my illustrations has a story behind them, based on my personal life experiences, so having others appreciate them is such a rewarding feeling. Thanks to all of you who stopped by and supported us! It was so great to be a part of the festival the celebrates the local artists of Salt Lake City.
Here are some pictures I shared on instragram from the event:

DIY Festival!

Today and tomorrow I will have a booth set up at the Craft Lake City- DIY Festival in Salt Lake.
My hubby (who gets the 'Husband of the Year Award") has been helping me like crazy to get everything ready. We have been printing, cutting and packaging until the wee small hours of the morning. Each and every piece of art has been handled with care just for you to take home and enjoy! The DIY Festival is a family event, with craft stations for the kids, food trucks galore and over 200 vendors selling all sorts of goodies. Admission is free! Hope you'll come by and say 'hi!'

Appreciation

If you love a flower, don't pick it up.
because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.
~ Osho


Head in the clouds

When I start daydreaming, I think about all the things I love about life... mostly I just think about food!
But other times I get inspired to create illustrations.
I usually have to write the ideas down and come back to it when I have time. My drawer is full of post-it notes and scrap papers with scrawled messages that eventually become art.
Here is a piece I created about being a daydreamer that will be available at the DIY Festival next week! Hope to see you there (admission is free!)
