This confetti technique from @kileyinkentucky is soooo fun!! And so perfect for the weekend!! Yay! 🎉 Unfortunately my weekend isn’t full of lots of fun- I have a sick little buggy (my nickname for my son) at home. He said it’s “the worst day of my life”. 😷 💕 .

It’s week 1 of @howtofailpodcast’s envelope challenge (and I’m doing the @paintandletters mail exchange!) and the theme is vintage/nostalgia...Oh the 80’s/90’s...trapper keepers, scrunchies, slouch socks oh my. I had to add a little bit of a bright Lisa Frank style to my envelope! 🦄 New Kids on the Block were my favorite. My grand pop bought me their dolls for Christmas one year. I collected the trading cards and I wore this awesome NKOTB sparkly sweater. Donnie was my favorite. 💕 After I grew out of them, Billy Ray Cyrus was my big crush. My goodness I’m so embarrassed to admit that! 😂 I had his poster hanging in room- mullet and all. 😝 What’s something embarrassing about your childhood?? I hope you’ll join in @howtofailpodcast’s envelope challenge! . #howtofailchallenge

I moved to Tampa FL 11 years ago all by myself. I didn’t know anyone but I was so excited to have a teaching job I didn’t care. Turns out to be the best decision I’ve ever made. 💕🌞🌴 My new FL print is on sale now! Find it in my etsy shop. .

If you’re in FL, comment with your city! Let’s see how many we can represent! I’m Land O Lakes/Tampa 🌴

All my life I have put up a real Christmas tree. We even cut our own Christmas tree when I was little. A real tree was always just the way to go. So for the last 11 years of being with my husband, we have had a real tree, because I just wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s just a feeling you get picking out and setting up a real tree. BUT this year I’m torn. I wanna put up a tree now (usually we don’t until like Thanksgiving weekend) & we are going away a few days after Christmas. So logically a fake tree makes sense. But in my heart it just feels sooooo wrong. And my husband thinks I’m ridiculous. Fake trees just don’t look like real trees. They don’t have the same feel. The smell. So what I do? Am I being silly or do you just get it?? 🤔🎄 #teamfaketree or #teamrealtree ???? .

Oh and, ornaments like this one are in the shop! .

In case you needed to hear it today. 💕 I know @instagram has been making some of us feel a little down lately- but remember your worth is not found in the number of likes or followers. 🤗 .

Send some Christmas cheer! 💌📮 Swipe left to see close ups of the designs and find them on @mixbook’s website. .#akholidaycollection

Anyone else feel like the holiday season just appeared? And so much earlier than last year? 🙋🏻 Is anyone complaining? NOT ME!! BRING ON THE CHEER. There’s something so special about this time of year and I absolutely love that feeling. 🎄 Are you feeling merry this time of year or is it too early? 🤶🏻🎅🏻 .

Happy Tuesday! I'm doing some painting today! 💓 Learning to letter with a brush instead of a brush pen was a bit tricky at first- but with practice I got the hang of it and now I really enjoy using a brush! Here I'm using a Zen brush size 0 with @decoart acrylic (my favorite white paint). Create something today..even if it sucks. (Love that quote 😊)

I can’t wait to pick up a brush pen tomorrow and teach 10 students who are eager to learn lettering! I’ve had such a busy week that I haven’t had much time for lettering- I desperately miss my pens! 💕 Tomorrow is my last beginners class until the new year but if you want to expand your brush lettering skills I do have an Intermediate class coming up on November 16 from 6-9 at @thepaperseahorse! I’ll teach you how to make designs like this! Sign up on their website (I’ll also link it in my stories) #letteringrocks .

November 1st means Christmas everywhere (and I'm totally okay with that) and the new @starbucks holiday cup!! 🎄 I got a sneak peek at the 2017 cups & the illustrations are so cute and perfect for the season of giving and kindness. I added some of my favorite words for this time of year and I couldn't forget my bright colors! You can get yours now- decorate & share with #GiveGood. Let's spread goodness and kindness this holiday season! Thanks so much @starbucks for the sneak peek, coffee & art supplies! ☕️🎄

I’m am sooo beyond magically excited to share this with you!!! ✨ I have had the fantastic opportunity to collaborate with @mixbook to design this party invitation suite along with 2 holiday cards (I’ll be sharing those soon!)- definitely a dream come true. Seeing my name on a major website as “designer” is, well I just don’t have the words. Read all about this magical party invitation on my blog & purchase it on @mixbook’s website! Happy party planning! ✨✨✨
