I'm so excited that I finally got good pictures of these. I've had them finished for a while, but it took about 5 photo shoots with different lighting and different backgrounds for me to be happy with the photos.

I did the illustrations on paper with pen, then digitally colored them and arranged everything on my computer. I love the stickers!

Those are so cute! Smiley Did you print them out yourself, or have them made?

Thank you so much! I print them out myself.
We recently got a better-quality printer though, which is good and bad... good because it's great quality, but bad because for some reason it hates envelopes. So after this batch, matching envelopes are a goner. So sad, because I love them!

Adorable! I love them all, but I think the hedgehog on the tire swing has to be my favorite.

I really love your art -- not complicated and it looks stunning on the brown envelopes.  I wish I had your talent!  (I just recently was complaining to my husband that I can't even trace a straight line, it was so irritating!!)  Beautiful work.

Thanks so much everyone!

Landofoz, people kept telling me I had such a cute drawing style and I was like "What? I can't even draw a person!"
But then I realized that my doodly style WAS cute and I didn't HAVE to draw people (though I still want to learn how). haha. Maybe you don't HAVE to trace straight lines... just try drawing something curvy!

Wow,these are so cute! I don't mean to rub in the fact that your new printer doesn't like envelopes, but, wow, I love those envelopes so much XD My favorite set must be the owl one! How do you make your stickers? They're awesome, and a really nice touch!

Sinjah, it makes me REALLY SAD that I won't be able to print on the envelopes anymore... that was one of my favorite parts about the whole thing. Sad
The stickers are those printable labels, and I put my illustrations in in word and adjust them until they fit the right way on the circles. Then after I print them, I peel away the "edges" so just the circles are on the page.

Oh, those are so cute! The hedgehog on the tire swing is probably my favorite, but I love them all!
