Trending: Sparkles, Cute Quotes, and Gold

In typical Liz fashion, I have found an Etsy store that has the cutest prints and stationary ever! Trending right now is gold, glitter, and cute quotes so believe me when I say this store has both goin’ on! Its called Kardz Kouture by Jessica Boffo. I seriously need to know where this girl gets her inspiration and how she learned to create such adorable little things.

Eventually, I would love to open a business like this but finding out how to do it is the biggest difficulty there is. No one is going to tell you what programs they use or who their printer is and how they run their business. Why would they? You would become their competition! I know a little bit about things pertaining to this through my dad’s Etsy storeĀ . However, you can never know enough!

Anyway, I’ve included a few cute little things from Kardz Kouture that I found on her store. Be sure to tell me about any other cute Etsy stores or if you have one you think others might enjoy!

Causes to Celebrate!

icecream_cakeHappy Thursday everyone! Today I’m using my time to be productive! Or just trip over things and say “um” a lot. Maybe a little both actually. Anyway, this week has flown by yet again and frankly I don’t know where my autumn is going but it’s going too fast! Stores are putting up Christmas decorations and bringing out wrapping paper. I’m not ready for this.

But I am ready to share an exciting bit of news with you! This past Sunday evening my very talented dad launched his online Etsy store Diamondback Military Graphics! My dad loves military art and he enjoys target shooting so he found a way to make money doing what he loves. He learned how to use a graphic design program to draw images of military rifles and then turn them into bumper texas_longhornsstickers. He has several designs available from the latest military issued guns to models that are no longer used but are considered “classic.”

To commemorate this special day, my mom and I got him a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake! Every milestone is important and this is a big one for my dad. Eventually, he would like to take these designs and put them on t shirts, hoodies, and coffee mugs. I’m trying to convince him that something done in pink would be great for ladies so here’s hoping he will get around to it.

Check out his Etsy shop and share with friends who might be interested!

Cute Etsy Illustrations

I am a sucker for fashion illustrations. Ever since I saw Inslee Hayne’s cute little designs I have been addicted to finding other artists just like her. My favorite place to look for them is on Etsy! I’ve found so many great sketches and watercolor drawings that just have me in raptures. Lately, I’ve seen many artists sketching cute things like macarons, coffee cups, breakfast, stilettos heels, Chanel handbags, and statement jewelry.

To brighten your Sunday, I’m sharing with you an adorable Etsy store that I found selling the cutest sketches! Surprisingly, they aren’t that expensive either, retailing for about $20 each. I linked each sketch so you can find the drawings yourself and order them. Here are my top picks!
