Looking for the perfect holiday gift?

November 17, 2008

I have a few ideas for you!  Head over to my online store…


I am able to offer a few of the things that have my art on them in case you can’t find them in your local stores.

I have a wide variety of absorbent coasters from Thirstystone– they soak up the sweat from glasses and bottles to protect your tables and they even have some for your car!

Beautiful metal wall art — all made in the USA! Themes include Wine, Coffee, Movies, Kids and more.

There are also a limited number of “For the Love of Coffee” books left.  Order a signed copy, add a coffee shop gift card and you have the perfect gift for any coffee lover in your life!

Just a few ideas for you… have a wonderful day!


P.S.  Order before December 8th to ensure delivery by Christmas.  There are some serious logistics as everything isn’t in my garage.  🙂

P.P.S.  5% of sales are donated to the Books for Kids Foundation.


Stampers grab your stamp pads…

November 9, 2008

Oh I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it when I get a box of new products!  They usually arrive 6 months to a year after I was done working with the art and sometimes I forget everything that I did.

That was certainly the case when I received my box of new wood mounted rubber stamps from Janlynn / Stamps Happen.  As I pulled each stamp out I found myself repeating, “Oh yeah!  I forgot we did that!”  (Not that I’m having ‘senior moments’ mind you, but I often set up dozens of designs for products and only a few ever make it to the product stage.)

Now where can you find these latest additions to my rubber stamp line?  Head to your local Hobby Lobby store for most of these and if you don’t have a store near you, you can find them online at:

If you type my name in the “search” box in the upper right corner, you will see everything I’ve done with them.

Now grab your stamp pads and get to work!
