Fan Friday: ‘Blue Jay’ Print

I was going to wait and share this another week to space out the Fan Fridays, but I just couldn’t wait! I’m surprised I was even able to wait a week without sharing this…

First, I need to get something off of my chest: I have a lot of fear with my business. Whenever someone orders or buys something from me, I’m afraid that they’ll come back, unhappy with the product and leaving a bad review either online or by word of mouth, I’ll lose all my customers, and have to go out of business forever.

I know, it’s bad and kind of pretty pathetic, but it’s true.

Fan Friday: A Bastion Against the Darkness

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today was a little bit different for us; the hubby had to work but the kids were off for a conference day. My daughter had to be to school at 11 for All County Band practice, and then the boys and I ran errands and went out to lunch. We took naps after getting home, and then some friends came to visit. Such a great way to end the week!

With all that busyness, I almost forgot it was Friday. Not only that it was Friday, but Fan Friday as well! Whaaat!

This guy right here just happens to be my handsome baby brother. Every time he’s seen this print, he’s mentioned how he’d love to have it hanging in his office. And as my husband drew his name for the family gift exchange this past Christmas, we knew one thing we’d be giving him!

Fan Friday: Lighthouse

Here’s our second installment of Fan Friday! Ever couple of weeks, I’ll do a blog post on how one of my customers displays (or wears!) one of my products. So without further ado, I give you Lighthouse!

A couple of weeks ago, I was lonely.

Okay, so I had my 6 year old with me. But my other two kids were at camp and my husband was in Chicago for the week. It was too quiet, and we had to get out of the house. So we decided to go and stay with my parents for a couple of days! We haven’t been able to go and visit for a length of time like that for a long time, so it was really nice to just be there and not rush a visit.

Fan Friday: Waters of Scotland

Introducing my newest series on the blog: Fan Friday!

Every so often on Fridays, I’ll post a customer (or fan, as there are no days of the week that begin with ‘c’!) picture of how they display or wear one of my pieces.

To kick us off, I give you Waters of Scotland!

This is one of my most popular designs, both as a print and as note cards.

This, however, is the original. It is displayed at my brother and his wife’s new place in their dining room:

Doesn’t it look fantastic on a blue wall? 🙂

Thanks for sharing, Jen and Jeremy! Or, at least, giving me permission to photograph and share 😉
