April at Leontine

April 04, 2013 18 Comments

Happy April from Leontine Linens. This blog should be re-titled the "Leontine Linens Official Fan Page" as it seems like half my posts are about them.

As I mentioned in a previous post, when I first spoke to Jane Scott, the company's founder, she offered to help me design monogrammed linens of my own and I forlornly told her I wasn't ready yet for my "official" bedding.

I mean, whats the point of getting your maiden name monogrammed on your bed when you've spent the past five years doodling a certain someone's last name with your own on scrap paper?

Well, that certain someone made all my dreams come true - both in the monogramming linens and true love departments - this past weekend by presenting me with a very important piece of jewelry!!!!

So look out, Jane Scott! It's time to start monogramming!

And look out everyone else, it's time to turn this blog into a wedding planning forum! Or... more likely... it's time to try to remember to blog at all despite all the excitement.

domestic bliss

December 06, 2010 7 Comments

hello good monday to you all. sorry for my dwindling posts lately, its been a week. i moved into a new house! if you haven't done that lately and don't recall just how hectic that is, trust me it causes you to say things like "im so frazzled" and "its been a week". did i mention it was torrentially raining when i moved? yes. it was. so for the last few days i kind of went off the deep end of moving mania. my brain has been swimming with thoughts of new lamp shades and throw pillows and how i wish we had sconces in our dining room. i became utterly consumed by trying to find a set of botanical prints pre framed. i had anxiety dreams about furniture arranging. i have been contemplating shower curtains and generally just not thinking about fashion or illustration. but now i have come back down to earth from my addiction to musings on home decorating. back to the drawing board. time to spread the tidings of the joys of marriage and motherhood. mom, relax not about me. here are some commission sketches i'm working on. i wont say for who just yet since i suppose i should respect client/artist confidentiality and all but i thought you all might enjoy seeing how domestic i am:
