Erica Sunshine Lee Plays At La Barca in San Francisco

I got to see a good friend of mine play at La Barca in San Francisco the other night. Every seat in the bar was full and the music was good as usual. I met Erica about 5 years ago and have done a few graphic design projects for her band Erica Sunshine Lee. The first project I did was a tee shirt Design. And the second was for her last CD design. She plays country music and you can hear it on her web site. I often listen to her music while I paint, it's the type of music where you never have to get up to change the song. I Love hearing her play and the show was very inspiring.

Cookie Toss

This is a new licensing collection I am working on called Cookie Toss. I made about 20 patterns to go with this collection and also a tableware template. I want to make some other templates with these pattern but haven't decided what to put it on yet.

When I was working on this pattern a friend of mine was looking over my shoulder and commenting on what color-ways he did and did not like. It's nice when someone shows an interest in your work especially when they do something so different from what you do. When someone else is looking at your work they have fresh eyes. Oh yeah and I was watching the hoarding episode of the Simpsons when I was designing these.

Shop 'till You Drop Sunday - Cupcake Ring

I was browsing on Etsy this morning and I found this ring. I immediately bought it. I love cupcakes and I love doll house stuff. When I was little I had a pink dollhouse that had lights that really worked. I would save up my $2 allowance for weeks so I could go to the Enchanted Doll House in Quechee, VT. I would spend forever looking at all of the rooms of doll house items before choosing the perfect addition to my collection.
This ring is made by SouZouCreations. This Shop has tons of rings made out of miniatures. Check them out if you are looking for a funky cocktail ring or earrings.

Satisfying your Sweetooth the Gluten Free Way - Blueberry Pancakes

I was super hungry this morning and I recently discovered this gluten free baking mix from Bisquick. So I whipped up some blueberry pancakes. This mix is better then any of the other Gluten Free pancakes or waffles I have tried after finding out I have Celiac Disease over a year ago. It's awesome when I can find something super yummy to make that seems like the real thing. And of course I served these with real maple syrup from Vermont. Enjoy.

Shop 'till You Drop Sundays - Etsy Cards for Easter

I always get my nieces and nephews (2 girls, 2 boys) cards as often as I can for lots of holidays throughout the year. I usually buy cards at the drug store, but this time I got a 4 pack of cards from I'm pretty excited about these cards because they are quite different then anything I've seen and I'm supporting an artist Lori a McKee. I can't wait to get these in the mail so I can send them off to my little ones. I'm also really excited because I have another niece on the way next month, she won't know what to do with a card for a long time, but I'm sure my brother will file them away for when she gets a little older. Hopefully I'll be making my own cards soon. 

Urban Mom Moodboard

I am creating a licensing collection titled "Urban Mom" for Mother's Day. This collection is going to be a play on Sex in the City meets daycare. I made this moodboard to create a color palette and overall feeling for the collection. This is going to be my March licensing collection, to bring to my licensing meeting. I am going to make these designs into Flip video cameras, greeting cards and bank checks. More to come stay tuned.

Sweetooth Blog Moodboard

This is a moodboard that describes my style as an artist and blogger. I am taking a blogging class right now that is teaching me how to make my blog better, so far so good. I'm sure you've noticed all of the changes occurring on my blog. It's really challenging because I am doing a lot of self exploration and writing, two things I'm not used to. It's a growing experience and I recommend this class to anyone who wants to focus and improve their blog.
