Almost Wordless Wednesday

My dog laying in the window. A trick she picked up from the cat. The cat is laying in the chair. They fight for that window space! Someone gets the chair and someone gets the window. It very amusing to watch the power play!

Bits and peices of yesterday's ballet drama

I spent most of Saturday struggling to draw a little ballerina for a custom birthday invitation. Not sure why I was having so much trouble getting the picture in my head onto the computer, but I was.

Above is the jumbled mess that I couldn't quite get together, until I put on the Disco CD. If you follow me on twitter then you know Disco always breaks the creative block and is super fun to dance around my studio and sing to!

I really love doing custom designs. They give me a chance to do something different to stretch my creativity. Plus my clients like that they have something that is one of a kind, that no one else has, that was created just for them.

I ended up doing 2 ballerinas since it is a shared party and I really think they came out great. The client hasn't seen them yet so I'm not going to post them here until she does. Meanwhile I do have some ballet designs in my eBay store if you are looking to buy something already done.

This design is available in fold over cards, flat cards, round & square stickers and address labels.

Today is my son's 20th birthday & Zombie day!

So today is my son's birthday. I'm not going to make the fuss I did last year. For some reason this birthday is a little easier for me but next year's 21st will be hard, especially since the youngest will be 18 that year.

I made this zombie doll for my son's birthday. We share a love of anything zombie & I knew he would appreciate the handmade gift. And he did. He's named the zombie and is going to hang it from the rear view mirror of his car. Oh and the pink thing in the zombie's hand is of course BRAINS!

Happy 20th Birthday RJ!

It's talk like a pirate day, matey!

Today is talk like a pirate day. It's one of my favorite days because I enjoy being silly and am easily amused! I changed my avatar on twitter to this image above to match the day.


I have lots of pirate people designed for my stationery but haven't put them up yet so today is a perfect day for a sneak peek. Avast ye mateys, methinks I spy pirates!

These scallywags will only be available in my web store starting in October.

New Rock & Roll Invitation Design


Some of my clients will remember this guitar. I have flat cards for girls in this design and a boy's fold over note card version. A special client asked for a rock & roll invite made using this graphic and it came out so great I had to make it available to everyone. It only comes in the 5" x 7" size and I have matching favor stickers, bag toppers, candy bar wrappers, address labels, note cards and cupcake toppers. Your daughter doesn't like pink? No problem I can change the color to her favorite.


I will also make a boy's version of this for those awesome Guitar Hero parties.

Halloween Items are Finally Up!


I just put Halloween stickers up in my eBay store. I'm so behind on them I feel so bad for the people who usually order Halloween items from me. They might have gone elsewhere this year but I hope a few held out and waited for me.

I only put up round stickers but have all the designs in square stickers and address labels too. So just ask if you are interested.

I re-worked this existing lollipop design into a Halloween theme and think it's so sweet and slightly spooky. This is one of 7 different designs avalible. http://www.thesassypackrat.com/
