Along with my little notebooks I've been working on revamping some awesome vintage pieces. It's been a lot of fun digging through local flea markets to find treasures to make new. I'm thinking I want to add axes to the mix too.
After a summer of planning, experimenting, drawing, painting, researching, slowly producing, photographing, editing and writing listings I finally have a whole slew of new items up in my shop in preparation for Philly's Art Star Bazaar this fall.
I'm really excited for all of my new items, but I've had a long love affair of all things Moleskine, thus making this small batch of hand block printed notebooks really special. Not only that, but I was able to share the process with my wonderful human of a boyfriend as he helped me design and carve some of the blocks.
It was so hard to narrow down my ideas to the few I went with, especially since so much love and work goes into hand carving each block, but I'm hoping as time goes on I will be able to add more and more to the collection. Let me know what you think and check them out in my shop here.
As I continue to paint my little watercolor crystals I've learned that I need to embrace letting go of my originals and sharing them with the world. That being said I've just posted a handful of original paintings to my Etsy shop with more to come!
If you buy an original let me know you saw this post during checkout and I will include an extra thank you gift!

I've had lots of opportunity to play with different lettering techniques for all sorts of projects lately so I thought I would share some of them here! Hoping to see my hand lettered designs on some t shirt graphics in the next year or so out on the market. Fingers crossed!
