Springtime is almost here. I can feel it.
Today celebrates love, friendship and consumption. All in all, life is pretty good.
Receiving two blog features this week stroked the ego and reinstated hope. During these long winter months in the Great Northwest, one can begin to feel a bit isolated, a bit insular in her existence especially if one is in her studio all day with her mastiff Belle as her primary conversation partner.
The features I received this week spoke of my Art Deco style, wares available as well as custom commissions including Art Deco and Art Nouveau style invitations and calligraphy. The blogs are both lovely and well-written including beautiful designers from the world over. Indie Quarter, based out of Manchester, UK and Vintage Indie in the U.S., feature and help promote independent artists.
In fact, Indie Quarter bought one of my hand-painted Parisian Girl Moleskine journals for herself from my Etsy shop.
Both Indie Quarter and Vintage Indie chose this illustration to feature. La Belle Vie has proven a most popular design and I have screenprinted it on to totes, aprons and signed limited-edition numbered prints all for purchase in my Etsy shop.
