free holiday desktop wallpapers

I haven’t done these in a while, but I was fiddling around with Illustrator over the holiday break and put together a couple flat versions of an old wallpaper design. Feel free to use as you wish.

christmas photo card and a quick announcement

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.

snowflakes revisited

snowflake window clings

(I got so caught up in the holiday that I completely forgot to post this earlier! Oh well. It’s still seasonally-appropriate, and better late than never!)

One of the great things about putting my work out there is when someone stumbles upon it seemingly at random and has an idea for a new and creative way to use it.  I was pleasantly surprised when Caron from Green Imaginations, a new printing company based in Portland, Oregon contacted me about creating some custom window clings from my snowflakes desktop wallpaper in exchange for a couple sets of the clings. I’m pretty picky about trades, but this was a no-brainer–I’d even been musing the other day about how my windows needed a little extra holiday pizzaz. I got the clings just before Christmas and immediately put them to work–and I love them! And I’m highly impressed by how well their equipment preserved the intricacy of the designs (my photos don’t do them justice.) Now I’m seriously considering creating a few sets of window cling doodles for different holidays and offering them in the shop next year. Thanks again, Caron!

holiday coloring sheets, new in the shop!

Printable Coloring Sheet

Printable Coloring Sheet

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!
