Fall always comes into my designs somehow this time of year. This past week some scenes I discovered locally crept into my custom artwork once again.

Have you seen any sights yet this fall?

Have a beautiful Sunday!

There’s been a lot of talk these past few weeks about “peak colors” for fall foliage in my region here on this east coast section of the clouds. Some say this time for the greatest variety and most gorgeous hue is around October, but it largely depends on the temperatures of the season. This new wall art/greetings combo tile was designed with that time in mind. There are trees around here that turn this bright, candy apple red when the conditions are just right. Many of these sights usually make it into my designs each autumn season. This year is no different.

Do you enjoy the fall season? We sure do!

Life has dealt an interesting last few weeks to say the least. When you’re used to having doctor’s appointments every weekend for about a month and a half, it can be difficult to adjust back to schedule. One of the things I’ve always liked with being in business for yourself and “being your own boss” so to speak, is–I get to make my own hours. However, I noticed in recent weeks I rarely take advantage of this occupation’s gem.

This Sunday, though, I’m taking full advantage of this perk, as I have a lot coming up here to plan for. We currently have a Back to School sale running all month of September that we’re thinking of extending until the end of November. Along with that, we’re mapping out the lineup for 31Nightmares this year in October, as well as some other events.

This wall art design was inspired by a scene I witnessed a few weeks ago upon leaving the hospital as August drew to a close.

Hope you are all having an amazing weekend! Much more to come.

Have a dreamy Sunday!

Greetings, my darlings. It has certainly been a while. If you’ve been curious as to where your girl Daydreams has been, please check up on my latest Daydreams Diary or you could always follow on Twitter or Instagram (links in the sidebar) for more timely updates.

This design is my first attempt back into the world of concept art. Although I’ve only been away for about a month, you’d be surprised how rusty I’ve become. Despite all that, I’m going to be hitting the ground running this month due to a recent need to make my services available to a much wider audience of clients. You will likely be seeing an expansion of Snapping Turtle happening here at CardCastles and lots of promo material.

I’m not sure yet what this design is going to be used for and it will likely be very brushed up before it hits a client’s hands. Whatever the case, I was happy to create this little surrealistic landscape after being away from the art world for what felt like aeons.

Have you missed seeing these designs here? What have you been up to while I was away? Do tell. You know I love a good coffee chat.

Have a surrealistic Sunday!

This weekend I started to wrap up projects I’ve been working on for months now. Next week begins the countdown for our community’s favorite event, #31Nightmares. While I placed the end drafts into my folders I worked on this multi-purpose template for future prints. It was fully inspired by the recent autumnal equinox and some of our feathered friends in the skies migrating to warmer regions.

What do you look forward to this fall?

Have an adventurous Sunday!
