It’s Been Awhile!

It’s Been Awhile!

Happy New Year!  I have been extremely busy.  I thought I’d be kicking back, enjoying the slow winter with not much to do.  Not so.  And I’m good with that!  I have created a TON of new artwork in the last 6 weeks.  I came out with a spring catalog, and I’ve had plenty of little orders to keep my from sitting around doing nothing.  Also, my parents took over our shop, It Is What It Is, and they are moving it to 318 Butler Street in Saugatuck!  We’re looking forward to a fun...

Baking is Love Made Edible.

With Thanksgiving coming up soon, I wanted to make a kitchen-themed piece of art.  I used some of the elements from my kitchen fabric design to come up with this piece of wall art.  It’s available in my etsy...

Morning Coffee in the Fall

This time of year, I’m thankful to have a free hour in the morning after my kids hop on the bus, before I have to start getting ready for the day.  Lately, I’ve been having a cup of coffee and painting, doodling, or drawing something.  It’s pretty much the only time I get to create new art.  Here’s what I made in honor of the first week of Fall, my favorite time of year!   This art print is available in my etsy shop or at shopwhatitis.com.  It’s an 8×10 art print mounted to wood, and can hang from a keyhole slot drilled in the back, or it can stand alone on a...
