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, and while I was ‘away’ things didn’t exactly get easier.
There were a lot of good times- my 9 year old and I visited FIVE different states! Our list this summer: Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Texas and Wyoming. That’s the most we’ve pulled out in a summer, so I am pretty proud of us.
Both of our favorites were Texas and Idaho. We visited the Angelina National Forest in Texas, and in Idaho we stayed in the best hotel <3 haha
Bad times included our dog’s diagnosis with cancer (second dog in two years to walk this road with) and my grandmother passing away unexpectedly </3
There was still more grief, but also more joy. You can understand why I didn’t pick up my Surface Pen for about 2 solid months. I just wasn’t up for it, and I didn’t want to miss out on a moment of the good parts.
Here we are now, though. I am back, and I have a whole new batch of fall files for your freebie collection!
Today’s release was designed on my Surface Pro with my Surface Pen (links in the footer), fully hand lettered and illustrated by your friendly freebie-maker.
I’ll be spending some time this week uploading the rest of this collection, but if you’re impatient you can visit EchoiaDesign on Etsy for a sneak peek.
This download is totally free for personal use- if you need a commercial license (or a different format!), you can purchase it through EchoiaDesign.
