Whatcha think of our new blog design? Since Miss Pickles and I started working together (near the beginning of the year) I couldn’t wait to get an illustration from her. She was designing so many of my clients illustrations for their new blog design and I decided it was time to change mine. I gave her a list of exactly what I wanted on my character.
Full body image with her in a sitting position
Cute outfit wearing a pair of capri jeans and heals
Holding a laptop in one hand and a pair of sneakers in the other (I’ll explain in this post)
I sent her a picture of how I wear my hear and it sits below my shoulders
I gave her the colors that I wanted to use in my new blog design
She emailed me back with a few more questions and a few days later I got my first draft. I was hopping in my chair when I saw it. It is so cute and exactly how I pictured it. I did have a few changes to make but they were very minor. Miss Pickles was very easy and friendly to work with and I am so happy we found each other.
Why the sneakers and teddy bear?
The teddy bear is an easy simple answer. I wanted to tie in the “Mommy” aspect of my site and my life. I am a stay at home mom that works from home. I am very blessed an fortunate to have the option of staying home with my kids and they are a huge part of why I started this business.
The sneakers that my character is holding means so many things. First it represents that I can’t always wear cute heals when I want. Being a stay at home mom I have to keep up with my kids on a daily basis and that is not always easy in heals 🙂 Second, I enjoy running and trying to keep healthy. Running was always something I enjoyed doing when I was young and even now I love it. I feel so good afterwards and feel like I can take on anything. I sit in front of my computer almost all day everyday and it’s nice to get out of the house for some fresh air. It’s also my time to myself. I can accomplish so much in my head (LOL but seriously).
