We Lived Happily Ever After: July 2015

Tuesday, July 28, 2015


Sorry I've been MIA a little bit. But something extra fun has been happening behind the scenes. You all know that I love giving my artwork away (sharing free things is what this blog is all about!) but I have been wanting to start my own little business to help support my family. With that said, I've been working late nights (after the kids go to bed) on something for the past month or so, and I am so, so, SO excited about it.

I decide to start my own Little Shop to sell my prints & artwork!!! What? Crazy, I know!

I already have an Etsy Shop where I sell premade logos, and a Creative Market Shop for digital design resources and graphics... but I wanted to do something new & challenging this time. This shop consists of my real paintings & hand lettering turned into artwork that I am selling as both physical pints & digital downloads.

We will see where this all leads, and I may even branch out and put up other products if all goes well.

This is something I LOVE doing, so I want to say thank you to all my amazing readers who support me, read my blog, and encourage me. You all make it possible for me to stay home with my babies & do super fun creative things!

To celebrate the opening of my shop, you can buy any pint, physical or digital, and receive another of equal value free!

Use this code for Digital Downloads: BuyOneGetOneDigital

And this code for Physical Prints: BuyOneGetOnePrint

Below are a few of the prints that can be found in my shop- take a look around and tell me which one is your favorite!

Also, chalkboard animal canvases coming soon!!!

Free "Cutie Pie" 8.5x11" Print

My kids are my whole world, so naturally I had to paint some prints describing them!

This one is for June. She's my cutie pie, and she even tells me that, haha! :)

Free "Whatever Souls Are Made Of His and Mine Are The Same" 8.5x11 Print

I love this quote. It's so though provoking. My husband thinks it doesn't make sense, haha! It's just so poetic, and romantic, that I just had to go ahead and make it into a free print for you guys. "Whatever souls are made of, his and mine are the same"

Easy DIY Floating Shelves


I really wanted to add a gallery wall in Jason's room. I love chunky floating shelves, but our walls have really weird stud placements, so we went with a more light weight solution & I LOVE how they turned out SO much! It's like an interchangeable gallery wall.

Everyone should have a little wild side to them! This inky print is a fun way to remind yourself of that everyday. :)

Free "Dream Bigger" 8.5x11" Print

This is just a little saying that has been going through my head lately. I have so many BIG dreams of what I want to do with my life, but my brain tells me to play it safe. God made us capable of great things, and sometimes we just need to take a leap of faith, into all the dreams that we think we aren't good enough to accomplish. If it doesn't scare you, you're not dreaming big enough! :)
