I help women blend the most important moments in their family’s love story into their homes with meaningful artwork.

I never considered myself an artist. I was the music kid. I picked up instruments as I went through childhood, not pencils or paint brushes.
I remember the day I discovered my mom’s hidden talent for drawing. I was in high school, finishing up a paper for homework at our home computer. I noticed a sketch drawn on the notepad next to the keyboard. I saw a girl with a ponytail listening to her iPod and carrying books.

I instantly recognized that girl as myself. My mom had completely captured my life in a doodle. It meant so much to me that she had been thinking about me sometime that day and put those thoughts to paper. And it showed me that she noticed me. Which for a teenager, is HUGE.

I held onto that memory and made a mental note to do the same for my kids because of how great an impact it had on me.

So I guess it only makes sense that when I was pregnant with my first child and preparing to share the new with my family and friends, a stick figure doodle was the first idea to come to mind.

I have always loved dates and how they can be strung together to tell a story. I sketched up a little timeline of the events that led up to that moment-our love story with corresponding dates.

I combined the memory of my mom’s doodle with my love of dates to share the biggest events of my life’s love story in my home and with my favorite people. I loved the simplicity and the joy I found in the final product.

Frequently asked questions
Can I order a product as a gift?

Of course! If you would like to purchase an item to gift to another person, contact me for further instructions.

Custom and personalized orders

Don’t see what you want listed but think I can help? Contact me with an idea you want to bring to life-I love new projects! Some of my favorite listings have come from the suggestion of the customer!

Do you add faces?

Sorry, I do not add faces.

We have a lot of pets...do they each count as a separate subject?

If you have unique family members that don’t fit in the classic cat/dog category (chickens, fish, plants...succulents are family too!) message me for questions regarding how many subjects to order.
