The Torn Edges of Life Are Beautiful
Mixing the bits and pieces of art and life
Creating designs is always super fun. Sometimes I create without having a solid base for what it will be. I simply paint. I am always in awe that one design can translate into so many different products.
I recently ordered the shower curtain in one of my designs (which you can see here on the left). It was great to see my work on such a large format but also nice to see the quality of the shower curtain. When you lend your designs to another company you always hope the quality of the product is good and I am pleased to say the shower curtain is awesome. It is very well constructed and the colours are very true to the original. My only criticism would be I wished they had reinforced the holes for those with cats or little kids as sometimes the shower curtain can get tugged at. All in all, it looks fantastic!
Here are some of my more recent designs that are available via Society6 on a wide range of products.
It's always fun to see your work published but to be published in such a pretty magazine filled with local retailers is super awesome!! Just look at the cover for the Spring Print Edition of Stimuli Magazine, it's stunning!!

It is often hard to find a card for the man in your life whether it is your dad, step dad, uncle, brother or husband. The design to your left fits all of them. It is a more masculine design and yet totally cool and you can add your own message to the inside to make it totally personal. I think men are often passed over when people think to get a card. We all know most women like cards but when was the last time you got a guy a card just for the sake of letting them know you were thinking of them.
This design also comes as an agenda style notebook which looks super awesome!
I have created a nice collage of all the masculine, happy birthday dad/papa/step dad cards you could give to your man cards below ~ all of which can be found right here on my website.
I saw this video on Facebook and it totally made me smile and laugh out loud! Soooo, I thought I would share it. Enjoy!
The time is approaching where we honour our Mothers and our Fathers. They each have their own day according to Hallmark. That said, every day should be about our parents as if it weren't for them, we wouldn't have life. Whether or not you have a good relationship with your parents, they created you and for that you should be grateful. Parenting isn't easy. People watch from the sidelines and are forever offering "tips" and "advice" on how to parent and what they would do. It doesn't seem to stop at any given age either. Some who give advice have children of their own and others do not. Regardless, I think what works for some doesn't necessarily work for others and we need to respect the differences in how we parent and simply raise our own to the best of our abilities. If we are raising our own children we also must remember that our parents were in our shoes at one point as were their parents before them. Times change. What was working in 1942 may not work now. Does it make it better or worse, nope...just different.
I have created a bunch of new cards geared towards Moms and Dads. I didn't want to define these cards as birthday cards, Mother's Day or Father's Day cards because I think they can be given at any time; although they can certainly be given for those occasions. I don't know anyone who doesn't love to go to their mail box and have it have something personal in it oppose to just bills! I was lucky enough to have gone to my mailbox the other day and had one of those "just because" cards sitting in my mailbox and wow, did it ever brighten my day! The funniest part was that it was one of my own cards too! Love that!
My newest designs featured below can be found in my "All Occasion" section. There is also a couple other new cards in the "Birthday" section too which are for Moms and Dads! My Mother's Day and Father's Day specific cards can be found under the "Special Occasion" tab.
