Meet The Maker Week

Who What Where When and Why?


I’m a homemaker, wife, and mother.  I’m busy with the daily life of homeschooling, family, friends, and church activities.  When I find some free time I like to paint with watercolors.  I’m inspired by the beauty of nature that I see all around me!



I’ve worked on many different projects this year: greeting cards, Birds and Butterfly memory game, coloring pages, etc.  I have a few more things in the works that I’m excited to see finished – stay tuned ; )


This year I’ve offered a free calendar wallpaper fo each month – for desktop, ipod, and iphone!  They’ve been fun to put together, so I hope to do it again for next year ; )


I have most of my paintings available for print and other products through my Society6 Shop.  I’ve been thinking about starting a shop page attatched to the website so that I could sell some of my original paintings…what do you think?

I also have a few fabrics available through my Spoonflower Shop – more to come soon!

I’m hopeful for more exciting opportunities to use my illustrations: greeting cards, books, games, calendars, fabric, etc.  Who knows what may happen in the year ahead!


Thank you all for being a part of this journey with me!  It’s such an encouragement to have this community of support!!






Embellished Shapes



I’ve been having fun painting these silhouettes and then embellishing them with florals!  I like them together…maybe a repeat pattern for fabric?  They are fun on their own too ; )  What animals/fruits/etc. would you like to see?  I want to try everything!  I’d love some ideas!

Sneak Peek



I can’t tell you all about it yet – but I wanted to show you bits of what’s been on my desk lately!

; )  It’s a special project that I’ve been working on the last couple weeks and I’m so excited to show you what it is when the time somes!  …



Orange Lilies


I found this unfinished from the summer and got it done today ; )  I don’t have any orange lilies like this in my garden, so I don’t know where the original inspiration would have come from…maybe a bouquet from a friend’s garden?
