I think that it is so cool that you can create an illustration with 
marker on paper and then see that thing manifested into a different form. 
Whether its a card, a purse or a cell phone skinYes...cell phone skins! 
Penelope Poppy has now ventured into the mobile world to make your phone cute and adorable.

My friend Mike over at Cell Pig approached me a while back and said that they were interested in launching some "designer" skins and that they were holding a contest for entries. I entered three illustrations for the contest. They started with those three and surprisingly they were doing really well so he asked me for a couple more!

 {this is what you get, the skins before being peeled off}


They have been up on Cell Pig's site for a couple of months now and it seems 
like they are doing really well! Mike sent me the Cupcake skin, 
I haven't used it yet though...I kind of want to save it.

The pictures above are actually screen shots from an online review.
Tim from Tim's Tech Blog did a Cell Pig review and the skin that he 
used just so happened to be "Hello Cupcake!"

I made it!

At the beginning of this month I had the opportunity for the first time {ever!}
to sell my cards at a local crafters market called I made it! Market.

 {My table}
 Fortunately I have a friend over at Steel City Cotton Works, who was willing to {very nicely} kick me in the butt and get me out there. This is something that I've wanted to do for the past 3-ish  years but for {who knows what} reasons, I just haven't…fear, procrastination, not knowing how or where….etc.

 {Another table shot}
I had such a blast. It was a Valentine's Day show so I created a couple of new cards just for this event. It's one thing to hear great things from your family and friends {they are supposed to support you} but to see the general public "oooo-ing and awww-ing" over some of your work is an indescribable feeling.

I hope that I have more opportunities like this in the future!
Thanks to everyone who came down to support me and thanks to all of the lovely people who purchased cards and prints! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
