I created a super cheesy design for Threadless’ Dream Destination challenge.  It is a retro/vintage “travel poster” for an imaginary destination called Cumulus.  Cumulus is the magical land of puffy clouds and rainbows.  It has cupcakes, unicorns and cotton candy clouds.  What could be better?

If you want to travel to Cumulus (or at least wear a t-shirt with it’s amazing, magical image on it), check out my Threadless submission!!

My First Threadless Submission

I just submitted my very first design to Threadless and I’m super excited!  Fingers crossed that it does well… or at least doesn’t totally bomb 🙂  I’ve been thinking about submitting a design FOREVER and never had the courage to do it.  Last night, I just went for it.  I think that I was too tired to be nervous 🙂

Threadless relies on the user community to help determine which designs to print.  If you like my design, please check it out and vote!

Even if this design isn’t successful, I’m really happy that I finally did it.  The first step is always the hardest!  Now I have to get back to work on some more fun designs!

Vote, vote, vote!!

Reading Makes You Awesome


Reading Makes You Awesome

Yes, that’s right… reading makes you awesome.  Really awesome.

This little illustration was born as a coloring page for my kids.  I wanted them to know that reading would make them awesome (as if they weren’t already.)


They loved it and just coloring it made them awesome… imagine how awesome they would be if they could actually read!


I was jealous of their awesomeness so I decided to color my own version.

Reading Makes You Awesome

And put it on a tote bag that I can use to carry the gazillions of books that my kids want from the library.


If you or your kids want to color your own “Reading Makes you Awesome” page, I posted a copy of the original coloring page in the “Coloring Pages” section!  You can also pick up your own “Reading Makes You Awesome” goodies from my Zazzle shop!

Read.  Color.  Be totally awesome.
