About

How being crafty changed my life

The CAPow! Shop started off selling handmade wallets. Finding the sewing more time consuming and less fun, I decided to list some prints in the shop based off of art school projects from my Graphic Design days. These prints were well received and I continued to list art and photography in the shop, but things really started to take off after one fateful trip to Walmart. I had decided to pick up some candy hearts to photograph for the shop and while standing in line to checkout an atlas caught my eye. This gave me the idea for the Hometown Hearts series and the rest is history!

My hand illustrated typography maps are all drawn in pencil, then inked. I scan the original into the computer and print the prints on my Epson Fine Art Printer. I also hand trim each print before packing it into a plastic sleeve and sending it off to you!

This Etsy shop has allowed me to go from struggling, indebted student working several part time jobs to a more financially stable homeowner. I would like to thank every single person who has ever purchased something from the CAPow! shop. Each one of you has helped change my life and your continued support makes this journey amazing!

Can you illustrate a custom map for me?

I wish I could, but unfortunately I currently don't have time to work on custom illustrations. I work a full time job in addition to running my shop and helping my husband run his candle business (WeirdBeardCandleCo.etsy.com). This leaves me with very little free time to work on new or custom illustrations.
