About

The Process

My "studio" is my dining room table and my "hours of operation" are after the kids are in bed. :)

I've always loved to doodle. Sketches and conceptual drawings were part of my interior design education. My drawing style has always reflective of this with cartoon-like drawings. The goal of the designs here are to look conceptual or sketchy, so rather "intentionally imperfect."

The process starts with a fab fashion inspiration from current trends of shirts, blouses, collars, jewelry, etc. It's then translated with a pencil sketch on watercolor paper and the designs are finalized with black pen. If in color, the designs are watercolor painted then completed with black pen.

I started out with just black and white designs for Mister Poodle, but I love color (must be the interior designer in me) so I've slowly been adding in colored designs.

Sometimes I like to watch black and white reruns of the Donna Reed Show while drawing and a Coke (my favorite) definitely helps give a burst of creativity. ;)

NOW FOR THE IMPORTANT PART...This shop will support orphan care specifically by donating 100% of the profits to funds offering grants to families that are adopting children both domestically and internationally.

With over 18 million adoptable orphans in the world, adoption has recently stirred my heart. For the time being, this is one way I (and you) can and be involved in caring for these children, by helping them find forever families.

The love God set upon us is powerful and compels us to love others as we have been loved. By His overflow of mercy and grace, we have been adopted into His family and by the power of His Spirit we are freed to set our love on orphans pointing them to our Savior, Jesus Christ.

This shop exists for the glory of His Name trusting in Him to take my small things and do big things.

    I love flea markets, estate & garage sales (bargain shopping in general!) crafting, fashion and design. It is a blessing to create. Please see my profile for my vision behind this shop's effort to support orphan care.
