Sneak Peek: She Brought the Fierceness

Yesterday I went on a little photoshoot with the lovely Miss Rachel Sherman, and boy did she bring the fierceness! We decided to go all 80s and do the shoot with a more Urban landshape. Downtown Phoenix was the perfect spot with all of it's brightly colored buildings and artist friendly environment.

For whatever reason half of two of the rolls were not scanned onto the photo cd so I need to go back tomarrow and get a new cd. Also Walgreens has a tendency for overexpose on their negative scans for whatever reason so I may just get them scanned somewhere else! Anywho here's a few of my favorites. They should be up in the Kitten Paws shop very soon.... :o)

KittenPawsVintage Buisness Cards

Simple business card I made for KittenPaws. I've slowly started to put a few in coffee shops around town, even left a few in China, and now will be including them in most packages when I think of it... :)

Its Raining Its Pouring

So I live in a place that is classified as a desert. For whatever reason over the past couple of days it has been raining like crazy. Arizona got as much rain yesterday as it gets in an entire year! There was even a tornado warning. Besides the burning hot sun, southern Arizona usually has the most incredibly mellow weather so it's just so strange....!

Anywho I have lots of exciting projects I am working right now and I can't wait to share. I made some cute greeting cards I am going to most likely put up for sale on etsy sometime this week after I go feel some paper at Xpedx and pick out my envelopes then take pretty pictures of the final results. I keep going back and forth on whether or not I should open up a separate etsy shop for my creative work but for now everything is going to be under the umbrella of KittenPaws. Theres something about keeping a strong brand identity and I don't want to lose that, but it's just a lot less work to have two different stores and I think buyers on etsy appreciate a vintage seller who is also a creative. Clever Nettle is one my favorite vintage sellers, based out of Portland (one of my favorite places!) and she occassionally sells her artwork alongside her vintage goods so yay! Much inspiration to be found.... :)

Tour De Coffee

This week I decided to do a little celebration of being American by way of coffee drinking. While I was in Asia I did not have a lot of good coffee. Sure they can do tea pretty darn good, but not so much on the dark delicious coffee beans. So everyday this week I went to a different favorite coffee shop....yum! Here is my list of coffee shops and drinks:

Wed: Starbucks-Peppermint Mocha
Thurs: Coffee Rush- Coconut Mocha
Fri: Dutch Brothers- Double Chocolate Mocha
Sat: Xtreme Bean- Cafe Mocha X
Sun: Gold Bar- Straight Up Mocha
Mon: Cartel- Dirty Chai
Tues: Steves Espresso- Aztec Mocha

Apparently I have a thing for Mochas...... so good!

Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf

So I like to make gifts for people. For Christmas I decided to make Andre a little drawing. He currently has this obsession with having a pet wolf. I, being a somewhat safe and cautious person, am against this idea. For a while he was collecting pictures of baby wolf puppies to try to convince me that I wanted a wolf puppy too. They are awfully cute I will admit, but I still don't want one as a pet! Anyways that is part of the back story of this drawing. One of my nicknames is little red due to the red hue of my locks so it just kind of made since, me as little red and him as a carebear wolf child boy... :)
