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...

Try New Things

  I ordered some mats recently, and I am loving how my art prints look in them!  Now I need to find some cool frames to display them in at It Is What It Is. They will be available at shopwhatitis.com and in the wholesale catalog soon!...

Busy-ness and Clean Eating update

Here are some Polka Dot Mitten signs on display at It Is What It Is!     And here is what my counter looks like this week: I would like my husband to take me on vacation for my 30th birthday this winter… because I will appreciate it more than I have ever, ever, ever appreciated a vacation in my life.   I am seriously thankful for all of these orders. I never would have imagined this is where I would be right now.  Our garden is coming along nicely!  Here are the sugar snap peas (my favorite): The only thing ready in the garden right now is the spinach and lettuce.  We have been having lots of salads with tomatoes, chickpeas, avocado, walnuts and balsamic vinegar!  I have made it almost 3 weeks now on the un-processed food diet and I have lost about 5 lbs.  I even made it through my daughter’s birthday last weekend (a total of 3 parties… and we even went out saturday night with friends…) without having a bunch of junk.  I just stuck to lots of veggies and hummus and salads.  I did have a turkey burger on Sunday night… but not on a bun!  I also enjoyed some michigan wine.    ...
