Maddy’s Monster

After seeing the blue and pink monsters Maddy (my four year old) decided she needed a monster of her very own. Her favorite color is purple and she asked me “will you give it hair!”. This is the result. Enjoy!

Mommy’s Pink Monster

Posts two days in a row, I’m on a roll! Here’s the second installment of my little monsters. This pink cutie is just waiting for a hug!

Little Monster

OK I’ve been a huge slacker lately. Lots and lots going on. The biggest issue though is that I cracked the screen on my laptop! I got a design bug today and had to scratch the itch so I just made all my windows small and moved them to the side of my screen and this cute little guy is what came out.

Funk

What do you do when you are in a creative slump? I have so many ideas. I just can’t seem to get them out of my head and onto the screen. They just don’t come out the way I picture them. I feel frustrated, and honestly a bit lazy, and just don’t feel like putting the effort into really workng ou tthe kinks. So what do you do to get your head back in the game when you’re feeling a little out of it?

P.S. yes I missed Freebie Friday. That’s because my intended freebie is not as cute as I wanted it to be. I promise I will somehow pull myself out of this funk and there will be two freebies by this Friday!

Sneak Peak- Animals


I’ve been working on these cute animals for the last 2 days. They are going to be the main feature of a few kids themed albums I’m working on. I will also be offering them as a set of PSD work paths. You will be able to take the path and stroke it with your choice of brush (in these examples I used a brush called “stitch” by boyinpaw) or fill it with your choice of color or pattern. So far I have 26 different animal paths and I’m looking to add more! Stay tuned to see when the final product is available.

 

You can view all the completed animals so far by viewing the album on my Facebook profile here.

A New Direction

What initially attracted me to the world of digital design is digital scrapbooking. I LOVE to create my own digital scrapbook pages and kits. As I have learned more about design and refined my skills I’ve decided that there is even more that I want to do.

Playing with everyone elses photo’s has led me to have a desire to learn to improve my photography skills. All the research that I have done on that topic has introduced me to the world of professional photography in a way I never knew truly existed. I was completely unaware of the fact that many kids have a Senior portrait session their last year of High School, for example. I have discovered that professional photographers are always on the look out for a well designed album, card, or other options to display their work. This is what I want to focus my efforts on for the time being. This blog is going to become a place for me to showcase and sell that work.

I will try to update and add more designs at least 2-3 times a week until I have a good supply built up. Every Friday I’ll upload a freebie so that you can get a feel for my work. I’d also like to work on making some tutorials for those desiring to create their own designs. On top of it all I want to continue improving my own photography skills and sharing with you along the way with Wordless Wednesday’s.

Please leave a comment letting me know what types of designs you’d like to see, what you’d like to see as freebies, what tutorials would best serve you, and anything else you think I can do to make this blog relevant to you!
