Most of my illustrations are related to WordPress themes these days, and this is no exception. I recently created a new theme called Pachyderm and this is the default header image — so cute! I love that WordPress allows me to combine my love for web development and illustration. I may consider adding this to the shop as a print…
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.
One thing I’m working on is filling up the Print-a-Doodles section of the shop with new goodies. One thing my daughter loves to do is draw and color, so I thought, why not create some printable coloring sheets for kids? These ones are seasonally appropriate, but I’ll be adding more options soon. At only $1 for the set of 3, they’re inexpensive, and you can print as many as you like! Hold a coloring contest or keep the kids occupied while you’re making Christmas dinner. Season’s Greetings from Calobee Doodles!
Another new holiday item in the shop this week – a printable elf paper doll set. This little girl comes with several mix-and-match outfits, as well as a sheet of do-it-yourself patterns so you can design your own fashionably festive wardrobe. Shed make a great stocking stuffer and holiday activity for the kids! You’ll find her in the Print-a-Doodles section of the shop.
