new in the shop Friday : holiday gift tags!
They’re here! Holiday gift tags are now available in the shop. They match some of my best-selling holiday cards and are perfect to decorate your packages this year. Hand lettered and illustrated by me.
gift idea: pea pods
My mom makes these hand sewn, beautiful pea pods. She takes forever to carefully choose the fabrics. She used to use all greens, but has recently added pinks and blues, with matching cords and bells. We’re now offering them as an ornament set! They make great gifts, the cutest ornaments and […]
best-seller at the holiday fair
Had a great, busy weekend at the Chappaqua Holiday Fair! What was the best-seller at a holiday fair? Surprisingly not the holiday cards.. but maybe it’s still too early. This cat lover gift box I put together for the fair was the best-selling item! It has 4 of my most popular […]

in shelly’s nursery
One of my best customers and new friend, put my Land of Make Believe print up in her new nursery. I love the cheery, yellow frame! And my prints have been rumored to send good vibes out for happy, healthy babies… Happy wishes to Shelly! Thanks for sharing.
My amazingly supportive friends have a lot of cynla art decorating their baby’s room! It looks beautiful the way they chose to display everything. They have each of my Starry and Cloudy cards in frames mounted on found plexiglass – such a good idea!
They also framed my Once Upon a […]
Here’s my happy birthday jam card.
We got my mother-in-law a cherry pie themed birthday present: Cherry pitter, mini pie baking pans complete with crust cutter, and a bag of cherries (to come). Maybe when I have some cherry pie, I’ll make a pie card. Til then, some jam would go […]
a storybook photo shoot
I did a Storybook Print photo shoot with the actual book I used for the background of these illustrations. The book is signed a “Present from your mother” to Henry Hirst in 1884. Maybe someone will have my prints in 2084 and say, “Wow, this was […]
