Etsy Graphic Design Logo Business

I have a really exciting announcement today!

Ever since starting my blog two years ago, I was able to take my art to the next level and branch out into digital design & graphics. 

I loved all the free font lists that I would find on pinterest, and that gave me the idea to give away collections of pretty hand drawn graphics. Since then, I've had privilege designing custom logo for several businesses, and that is why I decided to start my own "Logo Design" Etsy Shop.

4 Free Wreath Graphics

I've been having so much fun working on digital graphics lately. It's helped me keep busy while my husband is gone. 

I am a huge advocate for quality over quantity, which is why my main focus is making something both beautiful & useful. I can't wait to put up some of my creations using my graphics in the new house, but in the meanwhile, if you have made something with them, I would love to see! So send me an email! :) 

I have a fun announcement regarding my digital graphics... but I'm going to keep it a secret for a few more days... *shhhh*... keep an eye out!

Life FYI & Two Fun Printables

I can't wait to stop living out of a box and be able to work on all the "homebased" projects I've been longing to try out!

I am am obsessed with browsing DIY home decor websites like Dear Lillie, Shanty 2 Chic, Sarah M. Dorsey Designs, and Vintage Revivals. They are all such talented ladies! The first time I discovered the "Do It Yourself World," I felt a hole in my heart was filled- because I knew that that was exactly the creative out-lite that I needed! Sounds sappy right?

How to Create Chalkboard Printables Using Picmonkey

Chalkboard are all the rage now days thanks to Pinterest. 
I am no exception to the craze, illustrated by the fact that I have a whole Pinterest board devoted to "Everything Chalkboard." 

The number one thing that people have asked me to do a tutorial on is how to create chalkboard printables. This tutorial has been a long time in coming, but it's finally here! Rather than showing how to make one in photoshop (which is my personal method) I want to show you a super "user friendly" and completely free (no expensive software needed!) way that anyone can create their own digital chalkboard using Picmonkey
