I did it! I finally finished this piece that I have been working on since 2009!
CRAZY long I know. I actually drew this sketch while we were camping back in 2009. I even mentioned it at the VERY end of that post. :) I cant believe it took me so long to finish. I guess part of the reason it took so long was me being indecisive as to whether or not I wanted something so higly customizable up in the shop. It seemed like it opened myself up for possibly making mistakes, I think I have all the bugs sorted out though! I listed it right here in my etsy shop over the weekend.
and three ways to customize. :) I think this print will be PERFECT as a wedding gift, or a special gift this Valentines Day, Anniversary... Graduation. :) I hope it makes gift shopping easier for some of you! :)
I've been REALLY inspired these last few days. It seems I went about a week where I just felt unmotivated and couldnt finish anything. I just needed time AWAY. Well, I think I got that time because now I seem like I am in over-drive mode! I've been working on our bedroom, adding in a few key elements, and I finished up a couple pieces of artwork that I'm not sure I'll list in the shop. I may wait and see how I feel after I finish decorating the room. :)
Some of you may remember this art I finished a few years ago? I really loved the quote, and the image itself has still been selling pretty consistently so I thought it was time to re-create it. :)
It gave me an opportunity to draw another vintage house (since I enjoy drawing them so much!) and I really had fun with it. It turned out to be one of those pieces that came together really easily. The colors/textures and everything just seemed to click into place without much force or reconfiguration. I LOVE it when that happens! :) I really wanted to incorporate hearts into the foundation of the house like the previous house. It just seemed right to do so. :)
So, how did your Sunday go? After church we went out for dinner/brunch with my parents and some close friends... came home and I actually took a nap while the girls were down for quiet time! I was up until 12:30 last night working on the house artwork... when inspiration hits, I've learned to try and make time for it. :)
What about you? When was the last time you took a nap in the middle of the day? :)
