Spring Floral Sale

How's everyone doing this week? For me, it's hard to be stuck inside this much, so I'm trying to find ways to focus on things that make me happy and that are beautiful- like flowers! There aren't many flowers blooming yet where I live, so for now I am appreciating floral paintings instead.

With that in mind, I'd like to announce a little sale I'm running for the next week (4/3-4/10).  All of my original watercolor flower paintings are on sale- 25% off in my shop!

5 Projects to Keep Kids Busy

With kids being home a whole lot more these days, it's easy for them to get bored and it's easy for them to turn to technology to fill the void.  I am by no means anti-tech as a mom, but I try to keep a good balance with my kids. Personally, I think one of the toughest challenges for us parents during a global pandemic is keeping our youngsters' bodies and minds engaged and active so they aren't on screens all day long. Is anyone with me on that one?!!

Nursery Decor: Wall Butterflies

 These paper butterflies have been on my daughter's nursery wall ever since she was a few months old. I feel like I've been waiting all my life to decorate a baby girl's room and I feel so lucky that dream came true! Girly decor is so much fun!

I used a simple tutorial at Free Crafts for Kids to create these colorful butterflies from scrap-booking paper scraps.  I attached the butterflies to the wall with adhesive putty and they stay up on the wall perfectly!  

My daughter loves looking at these butterflies every day and they add a lot of color to her room.  Now if I could just tame her hair... haha!

Butterfly Card Design Collaboration

Hey there! I'm excited to share a collaboration with you all!

Butterfly Birthday Card design by Elise Engh for Papyrus

In 2018, Papyrus (the card company) contacted me about creating some artwork for cards for their fall 2019 line.  I painted several versions of this floral butterfly piece and this is the version that ended up on their cards! So fun!

Papyrus added the glitter and gold foil- which I love.  These cards are quality too! Seriously so well crafted that I could never throw one away.
