That Trusty Intern

Leave it to "the intern" to tell me about an awesome store on Newbury St. (and also online) called 1154 Lill Studio. You can design your own purse, wallet, clutch, bag, or even pillow. Here are a few that I created using their online design tool.

I think this would be so much fun to go into the store and pick out my own custom bag. They're not cheap. They range from about $30 - $210 depending on the size of the item. Check them out. If anything it's a fun hour (or two or three) playing around with some designs on their site.

Family Promotion

So rather than promoting myself, I'm going to stick with family this time.

My sister-in-law, Wendy, is a very talented artist and just started her own etsy shop. It's She has done some great charcoal sketches which I think are lovely and I hope she posts some. Phil and I are going to commission her to do a charcoal portrait of us. But here are a few of her pieces in acrylic.

I love this one! On Monday we went to the Cathedral of the Madeline in Salt Lake City. While sitting outside by the fountain we saw this great Monarch butterfly feeding on some flowers near by. Wendy caught the scene with her awesome Nikon camera (which I fell in love with!) and just a few days later she has this great series of three paintings of said scene. She's quick!

She still needs her first sale, so check her out and if you like it buy it!
