I took a few minutes to work on a simple Christmas card design for our family–with a focus on showing off the babes, of course. Now let’s see if I actually work up the ambition to get them sent out before the holiday!
I’ve had inquiries about custom work from a couple of my best customers since I had Gwen, and I thought I should make a shop announcement: I’m not currently taking custom orders. Between family and work, my free time is limited, and I’m currently focused on WordPress theme design and development and getting my fat butt into some semblance of shape.
So I apologize, particularly to my regulars–ya’ll are awesome and I very much appreciate your continued support over the last few years. I’ll make another announcement when I’m accepting custom orders again.
We welcomed miss Guinevere Charlotte, aka Gwen, on September 7th! We’re absolutely in love, and she’s keeping us very busy. Ellie is especially smitten with her new baby sister! I took a little time during Gwen’s nap to update our little family portrait.
What the heck have I been up to lately? Incubating a human being, that’s what!
We’re very excited to be adding a new member to the Doodles family. According to our last ultrasound, baby girl #2 will hopefully be making her debut sometime in late August. We were able to get one somewhat blurry profile shot to share… this little girl is very active (just like her big sister) and I have a feeling the next few years are going to be a wonderful whirlwind. Sisters! Oh my.
The shop is still running despite my absence here–I haven’t been very good about updating it, but orders are still being filled and I’m taking on a limited amount of custom design work, so don’t be shy if you’re in the market for a new shop banner or logo. I have a feeling things will be quieter around here until after baby joins us.
“Fireflies are nature’s sparklers.” I’m quite enchanted by this scene… the little girl reminds me of my daughter, although that wasn’t my intention when doodling. I suppose her sweet, inquisitive nature snuck into my subconscious when I was busy doing boring grown-up things like balancing my checkbook and loading the dishwasher. There’s nothing like a little kid to remind you it’s the simpler things in life that make the daily drudgery worthwhile.
Ah, but I digress. I hope this summery illustrative desktop wallpaper makes up for June’s slightly last-minute design. Click above to download!
