Everyone is getting married?

And its so exciting! The same wonderful bride who comissioned me to illustrate the front and back of her wedding gown is also requesting one for one of her bridesmaids, who is planning a wedding! What a lovely gift, and check out this amazing gown!

Ah-mazing. Thanks again Kristen for supporting my art! ♥

… is an understatement in describing the food-comatose state Jacob and I  are in! I can hardly believe the crazy Black-Friday shoppers who head out today, stuffed full of turkey, and chance the frightful aisles store after store!

As for holiday deals, I am planning on hitting up some of the online turkey day sales today and through the weekend! So we wont get a tv for $200… but you can still get some amazing deals this holiday season, not to mention the fact that all the major stores are pulling all stops at trying to best eachother in the sales race.

But, if you’re like me and are dodging the cart-races and deal-dashing (in LA? please.. I can only imagine the horror) then you can take advantage of the fabulous a-la-mode Black Friday discount happening over at Etsy! Purchase any fashion illustration product, print, and yes even custom order and enjoy 10% off! Just enter TURKEYFRIDAY10 at checkout!

Happy Holidays everyone and goodluck shopping!

Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving all!

I am putting together a kingly feast again this year with my fiance, along with one of my best friends! Just pre-made some family-recipe ambrosia salad and power-cleaned the house : ) so sparkly! (Until the pugs are let back in from outside)

I am incredibly thankful thing year for my wonderful man, family, & friends. And of course, all who have visted/puchased from my Etsy shoppe endeavor. I was very hesitant to put my work for all to see, and have been so amazed and grateful for the wonderful people I’ve worked with thus far. A big happy turkey day to my custom-illustration customers, I can’t say enough how much it means to be chosen to illustrate your guy’s wonderul photos and ideas!

So from a-la-mode to you, happy happy thanksgiving!
