It is a funny thing, being an artist…and a fellow stamp designer.
Most people might think we artists all stay in our own corners…
Kristy is in the ODD corner;)…I think her corner of this crafty world is tidy, fun, and super quirky.
I’m in the cluttered, messy corner; but I try and keep it somewhat cute and welcoming.
Different corners in the same room…
We both draw characters.
We both sell stamps.
We both have a business plan and an agenda to reach our crafty dreams.
The funny thing is, I really–like REALLY– love Kristy’s designs.
I visit her blog often…not to keep tabs, but because I feel *genuinely* inspired by it.
I get kinda pumped up by her thoroughness. Her ‘on-time-ness.’ Her hard work.
I like visiting her internet spaces because they are branded well and feel happy.
…It’s like getting a good pep talk in the artist locker room!
I met Kristy at CHA.
Her booth was SO cute. I loved the colors she chose and the simple but charming design.
I was kinda scared to even step in it…
Like– WOAHHHHH…Frazzled woman walking into neat, organized area. I feel like a hazard in that type of space:). Kristy was sweet and adorable. Just like her CHA space.
And if I wasn’t afraid of seeming like a creeper, I probably would have smooshed her with a big hug. (I wanted to hug Amy Tangerine, too…But I woulda broke that chick…Talk about being tiny!)
Anyways…I tried to seem professional. All I really wanted to do was breathe in all her ODDie goodness.
She is a true artist…and one heck of a business woman.
I’d like a’ Kristy’ tutorial, please 🙂
Long story short.
I really enjoy the art of others. I think most artists enjoy the company and friendships of other artists, even if we are carving spaces in the same niche of the world. This past year, I have met so many wonderful, beautiful people in this industry. And fellow artists are no different!
I was so excited and thankful when Kristy asked me to join in her month of fun and submit a project!
Thanks for having me in your corner today, girl!!
