Pick of the Patch

Oh, man, y’all. It’s been SO LONG since I’ve been here, uploading and styling new posts, that I’ve almost forgotten how! That’s good and bad. It’s bad because- missed ya! It’s good because I was TRULY taking a break. When it comes to me and artistic pursuits, breaks are my best friend. The last couple of years have been rough, […]

Hoodie Weather

I’m going to tell you a secret. It’s January when I’m writing this 🙉 But I wear my hoodies in all but the hottest of weather- and even then I keep one handy just in case it gets ‘cold’ at night. And then I’m waiting all Summer for the hoodie days to come again! That might […]

Hello Little One

Does this sweet cuttable make you awwwwww? One of my most-requested designs are files for new babies. Last week I brought you Too Darn Cute, which I hope also fit that bill, and today ‘Hello Little One’. I think this would look adorable on a tiny onesie, make a lovely card or be just perfect printed […]

Let’s Beach Out

As of the morning I’m writing this, my 9 year old and I looked over the calendar to count the days until Summer Vacation officially commences. It’s 17 💕 Seventeen. Seventeen days. He’s told me what he wants to do with his Summer, and I’ll be honest- little dude is a great planner 😂 What he wants […]

Too Darn Cute

Welcome back, my freebie friends! I hope everyone had a happy Mother’s Day weekend. Mine was mostly low-key. Aside from Christmas, I think Silhouette sees the biggest new users hike post Mother’s Day. With that in the back of my mind, I couldn’t help but make our first freebie back after the holiday a cute […]

Born to Ride

It’s fantasy freebie Friday! We recently worked together to create a Unicorn Illustration in Silhouette Studio. If you haven’t watched it yet, I do recommend giving that tutorial a view. If you don’t have the time, or are just too eager to make something cute for your grandbaby, I hear you- that’s why I’ve created […]

Let’s Mermaid

Hello, crafty friends. It’s been so fun lately to lean into my love of lettering. I’m beginning to find my style, or at least my style for now, and I’m so excited by that! As a little girl, my two Disney movies were ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘The Little Mermaid’. These two still reign […]

I Choose Chocolate

By now you’re getting to know me- I can’t be sweet without at least a little sass, right? The sweetness here being just that my chocolate preference is sweet 💁🏻 I’m just kidding! I am super loving, affectionate and loyal. I’ve been creating in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for 20 years now! That’s a very long term […]

I Believe in Fairies

Hey, Silhouette friends! I have loved being lost in Illustrator lately. Once again all of my down time is spent curled up with my Surface Pro*, surface pen and dreaming up designs. As a teen, I was thoroughly enamored with Cicely Barker’s lovely collection of fairy illustrations. I frequently incorporated them into my own designs (though […]

Make Life Your Beach

I’m early. But y’all! I never took advantage of the ocean for all the years I was a short drive from it. I’ve lived close to two different coast lines and the water was somehow never really a thing for me. Why?! Why didn’t I choose better?! Now that I’m an adult, all I want […]

April Showers May with Flowers

I’m so excited! Without some context, ya’ll, you can’t really appreciate my enthusiasm for this freebie. I’ve been working on this design for two years. You read that right. Two YEARS! Can you believe that? I started on it way back in 2017 on my desktop computer. Fonts just didn’t do it justice, though, and I […]

Little Ray of Sunshine

This isn’t me. Not today. Not right now. Recently I chronicled for you the misfortune which has been my normal. Rounds of flu. Car trouble. Bank thieves. Maybe I didn’t mention the last one. But it’s out there. And just as I was sure everything would turn up roses I was clobbered with a multi-day […]
