New Blog Location!

Hi there readers! I'm sorry it's been so long since my last post, but I've been working on something new. Specifically, I've been creating a new brand that feels truer to me and my products, as well as aligning my blog, and all my social networking sites that go along with it. My new brand is called Sarah Jane Design (crazy I know :)!) and you can find my new website at SarahJaneDesign.com.

Right from the homepage you will be able to link straight to:
If that is not enough for you, you can also find me at:

SimplyPrettyPrints.com, my etsy shop, is still open and thriving! A name change may be coming, but I will let you know!

I really hope you will stop by the new site and let me know what you think!

Wood Carved Blocks - Just Something I made

I recently made my niece some custom wood-burned blocks for her 1st birthday using my trusty wood burning tool and some pre-cut wood blocks from my local craft supply store.

My original intention was to decorate each block with one letter and add one or two designs, leaving some sides bare on each block. Somehow they just did not feel complete, so before i knew it, my birthday present was belated, but I had all 6 sides covered!  
Each woodland themed design you see is my own, which I first sketched on paper, then on the block, finally burning with a wood burning tool (similar to a soldering iron).

The font for the numbers and letters shown in the above images is Cooper Black, a serif font that should come standard on your PC or Mac.

I hope my niece has a ball (or a cube) with these blocks!

 I also hope to reuse some of these designs in other projects soon!

Alere Modern!

I was recently invited to expand my online sales to Alere Modern, a very cool online boutique which offers a great selection of handmade luxury items. Alere Modern is different than other marketplaces for both the buyer and the seller. Its invitation-only policy guarantees a high quality customer experience, and its unique business model requires much less work on the part of the artist, allowing us more time to work on new designs.  I am super excited to be a part of it, so I hope you stop by!

San Diego Photographer, Josh Cartmell

 While looking for a local photographer to shoot a few artist's profile pictures of me, I stumbled upon Josh Cartmell of Image(inary) . We quickly set-up a shoot location and time via email, and next thing you know, Blamo! I had several great artist profile pics to choose from.

Josh was super nice, and did a great job of making me feel comfortable in front of the camera. You see, for some reason I tend to freeze up like a deer in the headlights when I see that big ol' lens. Hence my lack of success as a teenage model. :D

Josh also not only made sure I was booger-free for those close-ups, but he did his best to make me giggle so I looked a little more human and a little less cybernetic-organism.

In all seriousness, Josh was open minded when it came to trying new ideas, and as you can see, very creative with his photographic compositions.

Umbrellas helped shade my pasty white skin from the sweltering hot sun that day. And they looked pretty cool too.

I really couldn't be happier with the photos, so if you are in the market for some professional portraits or are looking for a wedding photographer, I highly recomend you contact Josh over at Image(inary) .

Thanks Josh!
