Scrawny Girl Shop Update: Holiday Edition

I’ve been super busy working on new products, sketching out new ideas, and just enjoying being creative. I am also in a super festive mood, even though I have not busted out the holiday decorations yet! 
I added a few holiday items to the shop. Each item is handmade and super cute!

You can grab 3 original watercolored illustrations that all my Christmas items are based on, in my shop. They are all of girls wearing glasses, getting into the holiday spirit!

Here is an example of one of the cards. I cut each card, illustrated, then colored with watercolor pencils. I love how fancy the inside of the envelopes are!

Today I experimented with shrinky dinks, and made an ornament using these fun illustrations. I plan to make a few more to add to the shop later this week.
I’ve been working on a few more fun items including a few screenprinted totes and tees with my Scrawny Girl logo. I’m hoping to get those ready before the big Cyber Monday Sale! 
I’m also working a few Harry Potter and Bee & Puppycat sketches. Not sure yet if they will turn into paintings.
Is there something you would like to see more of in the shop? Something I could try and illustrate? Let me know!

Creative Space

I was recently asked to share my creative space on Talk 2 The Trees blog, and thought I would share where the magic happens here. My creative space is technically supposed to be our guest bedroom, but I moved the bed out. It’s filled with all sorts of crafting supplies…almost to hoarder territory….

Most of my furniture is found or vintage, and by found I mean left in my garage. Finders keepers. 😉

My prized possession is the Dolly Parton drawing my mother found for me at a garage sale down the street while visiting. I have lots of gig posters for my husband’s band Thrift Store Cowboys, some done by Dirk Fowler who is super rad.






My husband caught me working on the side of the room I didn’t take pictures of because it is a super hot mess. I’m pretty messy, but it’s how I function. If it’s too clean and organized I can’t find anything.

What does your creative space look like? Leave a link, I’d love to check it out!

Saturday Style Moodboard

Saturday Style Moodboard #5

This week our AC went out in the house and it was still in the 90s. Today a cold front came through and I’m bundled up with my coffee. We are hoping to take Amelia to the pumpkin patch soon. I can’t wait to take her pictures in the cute outfit her LaLa picked out for her.

This is my wacky outfit for going to the pumpkin patch. I definitely need a big bag, my camera, and a BIG coffee!

Something Yummy I’ve been making lots of yummy new crock pot recipes. Today I’m making chicken tortilla soup!

Something Disturbing Vampires on Supernatural. I don’t like their scary teeth! Give me Buffy vamps any day!

Something New I am having a SALE! on Halloween dolls in the shop!

Something I’m Watching We have 3 episodes left of Supernatural season 8! I really think it’s a conspiracy that if I buy something on DVD, the next week it appears on Netflix.

Are you watching Supernatural? Who is your favorite character? Mine is Charlie lol

If you want to play along and make your own Saturday Style Moodboard and let me know what you’ve been up to, leave a link in the comments. I love checking them out!
