An Illustrated Surprise….on Cortneybre…

This past Saturday, I woke as normal and stumbled down the stairs for coffee.  

As I stumbled about, I decided to check my Instagram, Twitter, WordPress and Facebook accounts (because that’s the MOST important thing to do first thing in the morning, of course!).  

While checking my Instagram account I found the following post from SAB Illustration:

I’ve been a follower of Shauna’s at SAB Illustration since stumbling upon her wonderful drawings a few months ago on Instagram.  

Each illustration is colorful, fun and captures the essence of the subject.

Imagine how flattered I was when she posted this fantastic rendering of one of my outfits!  

Shauna has an Etsy shop where she draws custom illustrations for all occasions – weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, shower’s – as well as designing company branding or stationary!

Aren’t they adorable!

I want to thank Shauna for the beautiful rendering she did of me!  She truly made my day, week, month, year!

Well, SJP has been a busy, busy lady recently!  I popped into my local Hallmark Gold Crown store yesterday and stumbled upon her wonderful display of cards, stationery and bags.

Each card is a little work of art – so cute, witty and chic – featuring gemstones, ribbon, and tulle accents.  I seriously wanted to buy several of the cards to use as decoration in my work cubicle.  I especially liked that each card had its own unique look, pattern and illustration but each contributed to the look of the line as a whole.

The bags and boxes were beautiful too!  I couldn’t help but be selfish and think I could buy all of these little things for myself although they’re really meant as well wishes and presents for others.  Wouldn’t it be fab to get a pair of SJP shoes from her new collection in a SJP bag and with a SJP card as a present!

If you’re in need of a nice birthday card or just a fan of the beautifully printed, written word run by Hallmark and check it out!

Closet creative…

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday! I’m taking a little time from cleaning to decorate my closet.

I love colorful boxes of all sizes and found these beautiful Harper’s Bazaar posters at a crafts store.

I’m also using a few of my purses as decor!  Cortneybre
