Etsy shop update



Today is the big day! 
Etsy shops (including mine) are getting a fresh, updated look and some fun new features!

I've been working behind the scenes for a couple weeks to pretty up my shop and fill it with awesome things, but this is just the beginning. Watch for new items in the coming weeks, including a whole line of greeting cards, fresh off the presses! 

Alright... enough gabbing. Click the photo above to be taken to the new and improved

In Her New Position - collage



I used a much-coveted vintage postcard, along with patterned papers

We Lose Ourselves - collage



"We lose ourselves in the things we love. We find ourselves there, too."

Anyone who loves art, yoga, running, music, dance, small-engine repair, off-roading, bonsai-tending, and collecting souvenir glassware knows what I'm tallking about. Ok, maybe not running.

This collage features a sweet gal in a fetching floral apron with a matching potholder. (Does she get lost in baking or gardening? We'll never know.) It is available framed (as shown) or unframed.

Image size: 4 1/2 x 5 1/2"
Mat size: 7 1/2 x 9 1/2"
Frame size: 10 x 12"

The Life She Imagined - collage



"She decided to start living the life she imagined."

I wouldn't call my art biographical, per se, but I can always look at a piece and tell where my head was at when I created it. Clearly, this one was made just after a big change in my life. 
And that's all we need to say about that.

This collage features a very elegant redhead (I was also going through my "Joan" phase), against a background of patterned papers. It is available framed (as shown) or unframed.

Image size: 4 1/2 x 5 1/2"
Mat size: 7 1/2 x 9 1/2"
Frame size: 10 x 12"

Price: $35 (framed) or $20 (unframed)

Come Sit Beside Me - collage



"If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit beside me."
This is me and my bestie to a T. Come to think about it, it could describe most of my good friendships! (Clearly, a healthy dose of snark is something that I admire in a person.)

This collage was recently auctioned 
at the MAWA "Over the Top" annual auction (and cupcake party.) 
The original sold for $125, but you can buy a framed print for only $35 (unframed - $20).

Image size: 4 1/2 x 5 1/2"
Mat size: 7 1/2 x 9 1/2"
Frame size: 10 x 12"
