New sketchbook zines & glitter stickers

hey there and happy Wednesday!

I hope March is treating you well! I wanted to pop in and let you know about a few exciting things! First off, after a year of not doing zines, I finally created the 9th installment and it's available here. It's a bit longer this time, coming in at 28 pages, filled with inspiration from my #peachtober prompts, Halloween, and Christmas. I hope it brings you lots of creative ideas and joy as you flip through it.

I also designed a new glitter sticker, Figboot! I love this sweet purple dinosaur that was launched when Baby-needs-a-name came out (from the Strawberry Shortcake line).

I also have extra Rose scented butterfly scratch n sniffs as well as die cuts from the March collection.


And last but not least, after binge watching a vintage toy documentary....  I decided to open my doll shop back up. It really sparked my love of vintage toys (even though the show is mainly Star Wars and action figure based). Tim and I have been enjoying visiting a few local toy shops who carry vintage dolls and toys.

Doll Shop is reopened!

 Just a wee bit of an update to mention that I reopened my doll shop. I started this shop way back in 2008 and at that time was a much higher source of income than my art shop that I opened in 2007 on etsy. I remember making the decision to focus more on my art than dolls and slowly made the transition to not sell dolls. The love of these dolls has never wavered though and a new spark and love for vintage toys as sprung up again.

Check out my stock so far. I'll be adding more as the month goes on.
