Archives: December 2010


I actually forgot about these photos….but I stumbled upon them today while I was organizing my files on my computer and it made me miss the summer sun.  I do love the crisp air of fall but I really am such a wimp when it comes to cold weather.  It’s dropped into the 40’s here in San Diego! That’s COLD for us!  I apologize to those who are reading this in places where it is snowing and freezing.  I do realize I am ridiculous for complaining about the weather here.  But still….my feet are ice cubes! haha!  Anyway….here’s to dreaming of warmer days. Winter, I love you but you make me shiver.

Meet Coury, AKA, the cutest girl on earth.  Seriously though, CUTEST.  I discovered her blog, FANCY TREEHOUSE, after her sister emailed me about creating a custom illustration for her…..little did I know a few months down the road we’d be collaborating together!

I love working on projects for people who inspire me, and Coury does just that.  The girls got style…AND my hair.  I think we were destined to be friends!  Anyway….I drew up a few “fancy” little things for her blog.  A new header, a self portrait, and her sweet little dog Birdie.  Her family couldn’t be more adorable!

Visit Coury’s BLOG to get lost in a flood of wardrobe inspiration. And warning, be prepared to waste a few hours!

Aside from her inspiring blog, Coury runs an ebay store with heaps of unique hand picked vintage items.

AND…it’s your lucky day because she has offered to GIVEAWAY this hand made vintage crown!  All you have to do is comment to this post as to why it should be YOURS!  Extra entries to those of you who follow our blogs!

Also, we are doing a “flop” giveaway….so head on over to Coury’s blog to enter to win one of my art prints!  Yay for collaborations!

Winners will be picked on Friday December 10th!
