I know, I know. "What??? Two giveaways in a month?" But, I tell you, it's true. This summer, I was lucky (pardon pun) enough to be one of several great artists to create a collection of customizable holiday photo cards... Continue reading

Melissa, you must be psychic because the things you've paired me with are literally my faves from Cassie! ...with the already drooled-over exception of the gigantic druzy ring excluded... how did you know? I feel the same. The match-up jackpot is going ding ding ding over here. : ) haha

Well, I did mention that my shop site will house a blog, so I'll be blogging there, in the future. However, it will be more focused on things pertaining to my own work than this blog.

Hi Natalie! Thank you for the comment! Yes, the 8x10 is definitely the best seller - I thought it might be, because I personally have always wanted to have a wider planner, myself, and haven't been able to find one, (til now...heh heh) Yes, definitely a very real Susy here. I am very lucky to be able to work with Blue Sky. They're a great group and very down to earth. They really care about their customers, so it's a nice fit. Actually, they are a team of about... 8-10 people... so, it's a very friendly way to do business. Enjoy your planner, and enjoy the school year! x S

Thank you my dear. : ) Yes, though I try, my overexcitability does seem to grow year after year...it's getting worse!! By the time I am 95 I will be able to spontaneously propel myself into outerspace with enthusiasm and spastic-ness. xx s

Hi Vicki, Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. You know, it's funny, when I post poems, they get very few comments... yet when I post a picture of a shirt or something one can buy...comments galore. Yet, I post the poems because I know there are people out there who will understand, and I hope, be as inspired and refreshed by them as I am... you have really given me a gift with your comment, and something happy to think about. It sounds like you have quite the family! Such adventurers! And, I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed the card enough to give it to your daughter... I am also very close to my mom, and she often gives me little treats, just to show she cares. It makes a lovely difference in my life. xo! Susy

Thank you. Coming from someone with your sense of style, that really means a lot. It's taking some time to get used to the scale (lots bigger than I'm used to working) And, to match the image in my mind to what is coming out on the fabric...slowly but surely, though! You have a great weekend too. s

Thank you Michelle, I appreciate hearing that from you. : ) Yes, licensing is pretty interesting. Printsource seems to be more of a show where you literally sell the pattern to the attendees right there on the spot. Although, I'm sure there are licensing opportunities to be had, there, as well. I have found that with licensing, it's really about finding the right fit. I have been really lucky to find some opportunities that were great for me. I'll keep you posted! : ) S
