New Happenings!

Hello hello!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and have great plans for the New Year! It’s been a busy few months on this end. Lots of family, lots of travel and lots of food; the best way for the holidays to be.  Though, while I enjoyed it all, I am very glad to be home again with time to play in my Etsy shop!

For a while now, I’ve been toying with the idea of opening a second shop. I’ve always been a fan of upcycling and reusing old things to make new wonderful ones. In my MoMoPics shop, I had several car seat canopies which were made out of upcycled and reused fabrics. However, they’ve not been doing super well. And then, a few months ago, I started experimenting with wrapping empty bottles with yarn and then embellishing them with eco-felt and old buttons. It’s been really fun! So, I’ve officially decided to make a sister shop for MoMoPics. It will be called: Dazzling Do Overs!

In this second shop, I have yarn-wrapped pencil cups and glass vases and I’ve moved the car seat caonpies over from MoMoPics. It’s pretty small as it’s starting out, but I’ve been having a wonderful time. Hopefully it finds traction in the Etsy market.

I’ll be using my blog here to offer updates for both the new designs from MoMoPics and new offerings from Dazzling Do Overs and any awesome treasuries or other news that may come along as well.

Happy New Year and all the best wishes to you all for 2014!

I've been active in the arts pretty much my entire life. Growing up, my home was filled with creativity; my dad's an accomplished painter and my mom has always harbored a great love for music and art and they passed it on down to their kids. When I was a little, my parents saw my avid interest (and inclination to draw on any available space - including school tests and myself) and they gave me a sketch book for my birthday and things have just blossomed from there. Officially, my main focus of study has been music, but my true love has always been art. I've been commissioned as an illustrator for kids books, a portrait painter, creator of center pieces for private parties and, most recently, a designer of kids clothes. My aim is for the designs to express a whimsical and playful feel to reflect the essence of childhood. However, I also strive to branch out from the generic "pink princess" and "sports fan" designs that are so prevalent out there. Every kid has their own personality, why not express it?
