Soooo it’s Thanksgiving!!! And you know what that means….Christmas is coming!  Ha!  But really, isn’t that what we are all thinking!?  Time to bust out the decorations and deck the halls!  But first things first.  Today we are reminded to GIVE THANKS and to reflect on all the good and wonderful things in our lives. I have SO much to be thankful for.  This year has definitely been a year of change for Sam and I, complete with it’s up’s and downs.  Most of my year I realize was spent growing a baby!  That alone had it’s up’s and down’s!  But that little girl has got to be the biggest blessing yet.  I thank God for her every day.  We have a lot of family in town with us right now, so tomorrow will be a pretty special day.  I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, surrounded by the people you love.  AND FOR THE GOOD STUFF :

I designed these winter inspired greeting cards late last year in hopes of being able to sell them in time for Christmas.  Unfortunately, I was a bit late in my completing them, so I’ve got a shelf stacked with these Assorted Winter Card Box Set’s just waiting for someone like YOU!  I happen to think they are still just as cute as they were last year. haha.  Today through Sunday, November 27th, I am offering 25% off the set, which includes 8 assorted cards + envelopes.  They are blank inside, so if you don’t happen to use them all for Christmas, you can always extend them for other occasions! If you buy 2 or more box set’s….you will receive a free magnet! Just enter the coupon code “Winter” at checkout to receive the 25% off.

And in the “spirit of giving”…..a GIVEAWAY! So this little print is not even available on my ETSY shop yet, but it will be very soon.  Whoever win’s this will have the very first one.  I am in the process of making several more paper prints available in my SHOP, so stay tuned for that!  I am kind of excited about having more options for people to choose from! This one is fittingly titled “Hello Dear”.  It is a 12″X12″ print of one of my original works painted on wood, and it could be yours.  This giveaway will last through Thursday, Dec. 1st.

    Hey Kelli!

    I know that I kind of already won (sort of a second place) one of your other giveaways you had a few months ago,
    but a month ago, I was in a horrible car crash (that wasn’t my fault) that killed the two girls in my car and put me in critical condition.

    Somehow, I am doing very, very well, and returned pretty much back to normal except for a little soreness, however, I still have to deal with meds and hospital visits and speech therapists and things.

    I love deers. I’m pretty sure that they’re my power animal (if I was an animal, I feel like I’d be a deer)… so it would be awesome if I could get this. (:

    Also, it’s really nice of you to always do give aways – and as usual, your work is always beautiful. (:

    It’s also weird to me that Christmas is coming up…. because before the accident, I was waiting for Halloween. And sitting in a hospital for three weeks, through me off! So, since I know that it is coming up, I hope that you have some great holidays. (:

  11. brina

    I already follow your blog since weeks.
    I’m from germany, blogging with a friend of mine about things we like, love, adore.
    creative things, music, citytalk, fashion, comedy, history…just the way it comes in our minds!

    Mainly I decided to follow you, after I recognized that you’re coming from San Diego.
    I went to SD for like three month in Summer 2009.
    Following your blog gave me some hope to see something of the city.
    I#d love to see some photos of SD, the landscape and things you’re doing there :)

    best regards.

  20. Ashley

    i follow and i love that print and those cards. btw i adore you illustrations, your style and your blog. def one of my favorite reads. xo

  21. Ellen

    Hi Kelli! First of all, thank you for doing these giveaways of your own artwork. I absolutely think it is the cutest, and you are the only illustrator I know of.

    Rylee is so cute! I can’t say enough sweet things about her when I read your blog posts about her and seeing those baby pictures. She is one fortunate child. (I like to use the word fortunate instead of lucky because luck is sort of like a gamble term where you either you get it or lose it. Whereas fortunate implies that effort was put into something to achieve a big goal).

    I’ll share a little bit about myself before this comment gets too long. ;) I’m a 17 year old aspiring fashion designer/stylist/photographer. I go to high school and am making my way to achieving my dreams.

    Much love from San Francisco,

  22. Allison

    Hello Kelli! I hope you are having a great week! I love your creativity & heart of love shown through what you create! Thanks for having such a bright place on the Internet to go to! Happy December!

  23. Courtney

    Hi Kelli! I just stumbled upon your blog and I have to say that I am in LOVE! I recently got married in May & during my planning I stumbled upon your wedding images and became completely obsessed…no joke I think I saved every single picture I found to my desktop for inspiration (And I didn’t even know it was you until just now!)! Completely adorable! I would love to own a piece of your work and this cute little deer print is perfect!

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    There’s no doubt that that you need to publish more about this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but generally folks don’t discuss such issues.
    To the next! Kind regards!!
