Last summer the hubs and I decided to redo some of the landscaping in our front yard, and in this process bought a flowering cherry tree. Unfortunately we bought it after it’s blooming season (late spring) so we never got to see it in it’s true beauty. I don’t have a green thumb by any means, but all summer I worked hard to keep that little tree alive.
It was a dry summer, so I was definitely paranoid about the tree drying up. I watered it like crazy. I remember a few times seeing the tips of the leaves turn red, as if the tree had decided to take a turn into an early fall. I’d frantically water it more. By some miracle, I managed to keep it alive.
Just the other day I was out in the front yard, the weather being at least nice enough to enjoy, and even though everything is brown and there’s not a leaf on any tree in sight, the promise of spring is definitely in the air. To my delight, my little cherry tree has buds on it. This might seem silly to you, but to me, this is a big deal. I can’t keep plants alive for the life of me! (It’d be so much easier if they were like kids and cried when they needed something!) I am just thrilled I managed to keep it alive, and I’m so looking forward to seeing it in full bloom.
I love spring. I love the colors, the warmth, the sounds of birds chirping and kids playing. there’s just something so lively about it after a long winter. That’s where my inspiration came from for this print. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it! The print is free for personal use, and you may print it as many times as you like!

It’s time for another freebie because I love giving stuff away. I might be a little crazy. This time I’m giving away two Kitchen Cheat sheets. Both fit standard 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper. The link to download them is below.
The idea for these came to me in a weird way last night as I was laying in bed unable to sleep. I was thinking of ways to use my Wacom drawing tablet and had the idea for a seamless repeatable pattern. I’ve really enjoyed making patterns lately and thought I’d try my hand at something other than lines and polka dots. In my head I sketched out a simple measuring cup and thought to myself “I can do that.” And I can make other things too.
I am by no means an artist. If you gave me a pen and paper, the best you might get out of me are some shaky stick people. Regardless, I was really quite pleased with how the pattern turned out. I wanted to use it for something fun, so I came up with two Kitchen Cheat sheets. One is a simple conversion sheet and the other is for if you ever need to cut a recipe in half. Hope you enjoy!

I made this announcement on my Facebook page, but I thought I’d also make it here. I’m now selling customizable shower invitations over at my Etsy Shop. There’s not much there yet but as time goes on I’ll be adding bridal showers, birthday invitations, and others to the store.
If you’re enjoying the freebies, I’d love it if you became a fan on my facebook page (which also means you’ll stay up to date on the latest giveaways and contests), or head over to my Etsy Store to find some really affordable deals for wall art or invitations.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog, keep checking periodically as I’ll be posting more freebies in the future.
I’m not sure if this is typical of other designers, but for me, there are days… weeks even, where I’m just not feeling the creativity. Inspiration ebbs and flows for me. Some days, all I want to do is immerse myself in my designs and other days I don’t even want to look at a blank artboard.
The past few weeks my artistic inspiration has been pretty dry, but this week apparently has been the opposite. Many hours have been poured into these designs, and I’m simply thrilled with how they turned out. I’ve also learned new techniques that I’m excited to put into practice, and have used some of those techniques to make these freebies.
All printables are high quality and will fit 8×10 frames. Due to screen resolutions and printer quality, colors may vary slightly when you print them out.
