After the Detroit Urban Craft Fair...

I had "the best time" being a vendor at the Detroit Urban Craft Fair. Around 4pm, on Saturday, I remember standing there and it was almost like everything stopped for a split second and I had this overwhelming feeling of gratitude come over me. I'm so beyond grateful for all of the hard work that Handmade Detroit puts into the show so that it was an amazing success yet again this year. I'm so grateful that all of my hard work paid off leading up to the show and that I have a husband that supports what I'm doing and a Mom who is always there by my side and is able to lend a hand whenever she can. I enjoyed chatting with all of the lovely people that attended the show and all of their amazing comments about my work. My heart is overwhelming full... and I cannot think of a better way to start the holiday season and the new year! Happy Holidays and thank you so much from the bottom of my heart to everyone! xo xo xo

Vernor Ginger Ale Watercolor Illustration Print

Vernors Ginger Ale was originally created by James Vernor, a clerk who worked at a Detroit, Michigan drugstore. James Vernor was called off to war in 1892, so he sealed up his "secret ingredients" in an oak cask, and upon his return he found out that something "deliciously different" (also the company tagline), happened in the aging process. In 1880, sales of the Vernors Ginger Ale became public in the drugstore that James Vernor opened, soon bottling and distribution began and later he opened a soda fountain.

Archival quality prints are now available in my Etsy shop of this Detroit classic soda!

Culinary Herbs Watercolor Illustration

I can't really even remember how far back it was that my Aunt suggested that I do a piece with herbs, but it was quite awhile. I even started working on some herbs, but it wasn't feeling quite right, so I pushed it to the back burner. Time went on and I worked on other projects and forgot a bit about the herbs, but I also kept coming back to it knowing that it would be nice to get this done for not only her but, perhaps others would enjoy an herb piece for their kitchen. I have to say I'm so pleased with it that I wish I had room in my own kitchen to display it, but unfortunately I don't. I'm also contemplating some individual smaller prints, but for now there's just this larger piece. If you're interested you can see more photos and get more info in my Etsy shop! If you have interest in smaller individual prints, just let me know.

Herbs: my work in progress...

A few years back, even before I was really selling my work publicly my Aunt had asked if I would work on some herb illustrations for her kitchen. I did start them at one point, but I never fully executed my whole idea, so I started over and I'm working on them now for a collection of herbs. Here's a sneak peek of my work in progress... (more to come soon!)
