I love paper!

Happy post Thanksgiving everyone! Hope you are all making good use of those yummy leftovers....I was afraid we wouldn't have any sweet potato casserole leftover, but I made enough for a few nights extra :)

Over the past few weeks I have been busy working on some new stuff for my Etsy shop, mostly some embroidery, and I did the illustration below. This was a concept for a woman who is writing a book about her adopted daughter. I won't be doing the book, but it was a lot of fun to open up my digital scrap paper drawer, and get some practice in. It's been awhile since I've done some digital stuff, and I really love how the piece came out.

I'm working on getting permission to post my pillows for Working Class Studio that I did last spring, so hopefully those will be up soon too. I still don't have Dreamweaver, so I unfortunately won't be able to update my site anytime soon. Keep checking here for new stuff!

Etsy shop up!

I just posted my first item for sale on my new Etsy shop, sarahannmontes!  So far, it's just the one item, I didn't have time to take all the pictures I needed to for the other items before work today.  I will be posting more tomorrow. Here's a peek at what I've got up so far:

Besides these ornaments, I'm working on some paintings for some notecards I want to put up, though I probably won't be able to get to those until after Christmas. I've got so many ideas for handmade gifts this year, and with some freelance starting to pick up, I just don't think I'll have the time for a while to work on my own stuff.

Anyways, check out the Etsy shop! More items will be up soon!
