taking custom orders for illustrated stationery

if you follow me, you know that i often put custom illustrated details into my pieces. they are usually simple, like a tree or branch, an object, or a scene. because of time and clients' budget restraints, i can't always do a custom illustration, or it may not be very intricate.

however, i LOVE to illustrate my work. as you can see from my daughter's invitation, it's something i truly enjoy.

i've gotten a lot of questions about the invite since i posted it yesterday (below). and i would love to take on custom orders for pieces such as these! the image can be created large enough for reprint as a piece of art after your design is complete. so you can get two things at once -- your stationery and custom artwork for your home.

to see more of my custom artwork created for kids, go to my nicillustration blog.

been busy

hey kids. so sorry to be missing! i've been rather busy -- there were a couple of new babies to celebrate in the past 2 weeks that i made presents for (check out the nicillustration blog for those projects). then, of course, there was anna's first halloween weekend! and of course i've been terribly busy working on my stationery, from winter-themed invitations to holiday cards, and finally my ready-to-order line.

i hope you are all having a good week so far! i'll be on later this week with more updates. in the meantime, be sure to follow me on twitter and fan me on facebook for more nic, more of the time!
