I  think I’m destined to have one someday…although, I’m sure Ms. Vayda would not approve.

Nick and I are closing shop and enjoying time with friends and family!  We’ll be back soon with a bevy of goodness to share…and after all the presents are opened and surprises unveiled, a ton of new work to post to this poor idle blog.  Wishing you all a warm and wonderful Holiday Season, and of course, thanks to all of you who have allowed us to have such a great year!

I have BIG NEWS!  The Original Foodie Prints are back!

Only this time they’ve been printed with the finest archival inks onto lush epson paper…and the best part?!?…I’ve just listed them at $18!  How’s that for the Foodie on your list?  But wait…there’s more…

AND…….

We’ll refer to these little gems as “the second generation,” as they are a bit different.  They are printed with the finest archival inks onto a lovely Epson paper, a tad smaller than the originals, they measure 5″x5″.  Each comes hand-signed by yours truly, and is guaranteed to add a little spunk to your kitchen!  The best part?  Only $12 per print!!!

That’s right…the Rockstar Red series is all gone!  Things seem to be picking up this first week in Spring…so if you’ve been eyeing the Foodie Prints, better pay a visit to The Produce Stand quick!

Not much else going on around the studio…a little of this…and a little of that.   I have, however, decided to design my own wedding invitations.  I’m not sure how smart this idea is.  I’m plenty capable of designing invites…but my indecisive nature may just work against me here.   When to stop my inner control freak?

Anyhoo…wishing you all a lovely first weekend in Spring!  xo

What a co-ink-y-dink!  I have spent weeks working on this portrait, to wake up and realize that today, March 5th, it is complete.  Perfect timing, as today is Lee Anne (my little mermaid’s) birthday.  There’s a story here, and for those of you lucky enough to know Lee Anne, you know where it begins.  Lee Anne, my step-mother, has been living with Huntington’s Disease for the past 10 years.  Never heard of Huntington’s Disease?   CLICK HERE.

Lee Anne is such an inspiration to all who meet her.  She fights her battle with an outpouring of love, an endless supply of hope, and a smile so infectious it can light up a room…( it’s hard to miss her trademark ruby red lipstick!)  I can’t think of any better way to wish her a happy birthday, than to unveil her portrait, and to offer it up as a charitable print.  (That is, of course, if you approve Lee)  You can purchase your print by visiting my HeatherLYoung Etsy Shop and know that the proceeds will help find a cure for this debilitating disease.  Spread the word!
