In addition to the loss of my beloved RockStar Reds and Eat Your Greens series, seems my printer will no longer be able to accommodate the 8×10 size either…eeek!

While I’ve enjoyed this journey from the Southern Girl’s Cookbook, to the Taste of the Month with Skirt!, and ultimately their last hoorah at The Produce Stand, I’m thinking it’s time to move in a new direction.  Time to get back to my painting roots, and come up with a new series to keep me up at night.

Fret not, my foodie loving friends… your collections just became a  little more exclusive!  These were produced in very limited editions, so if you’ve been pondering that Fish for Dinner, now’s the time to click click buy!

***SALE*** This weekend only!

November 27, 2008

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  We’re looking forward to some of Granny J’s cookin’ tonight, and maybe a little Christmas decorating later this weekend.  Of course, I also plan to do a little online shopping and I thought…what would Thanksgiving be without family, great food, and a great sale?  All things considered, I decided the perfect way to show my appreciation for said day, would be to throw an awesome sale on The Original Foodie Prints. Think Saundra Kay’s Okra & Tomatoes or Liz’s Deviled Blue Crab. You’ll even find a festive drink or two over there.  So skip on over to the produce stand and take a peek!  There’s never been a better time to start a collection, and they make for excellent gifts!

Things are Picking Up!

November 12, 2008

I really love this time of year.  Meeting and working with new clients, reconnecting with some from years gone by.  So many different directions from which to work.  It keeps everything fresh and exciting.  Anywho, here’s the latest ink.  I just fell in love with this old live oak.

There’s still time to commission your very own ink for the super-sale price of $200!  (that’s a savings of $50!)  Just shoot me an email or visit The Ink Lab to get started.  Oh yeah, and you don’t have to be local.  It’s very common for me to work from photographs.  We can even have your ink printed on luxurious note cards, or have prints made of the old family home.  It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

Wishing you all a very happy Wednesday!

The Holidays are right around the corner!  Now’s the time to get your custom pen & ink drawing started, and for a little incentive, I’ve dropped the price from $250 to $200!  So commission that ink, and use the extra $50 to order 50 fabulously matching note cards!

Here’s how the process works:

1.  I start with a photograph.  You can supply a photo of your old family home, your cousins house in Wyoming, or if you’re local to Savannah, I prefer to take my own shots.

2.  I draw up a pencil sketch for your approval.  You tell me if I’ve missed that ever-so-unique weather-vane, or little detail that makes your house a home.

3.  We make any final adjustments, and then it’s time to play with ink.  Your final image is an 11×14 inch drawing with archival ink, and comes with a black mat and a sassy pinwheel bow.

4.  Last, but certainly  not least, for a $1 per note,  you can have your house printed on fine Crane Stationery from my friends at Turtle Creek.  Perfect for that “anytime” note!

I’ve even had small prints made of the old family home, so that everyone in the family can have a memory of that special place!  The possibilities are endless!

So take advantage of that low rate, and availability…(last year my schedule booked up pretty fast)…and commission your ink today!  You can do so easily via The Ink Lab, or if you’d rather not have to “sign in” to etsy, then just shoot me an email at Heather@FLYoungStudio.com and I’ll send you an invoice.

Thanks for stopping by!

Yikes!

Some days I don’t know where the hours go?  This time of year seems to move so fast!  Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to take advantage of the SALE at The Produce Stand.  So be sure to EAT YOUR GREENS! In other exciting etsy news, I’d like to introduce you to Coastal Gems. My Granny…(the one I so affectionately named this painting after), and her dear friend Teena have opened shop on Etsy!  They’re selling some fabulous jewels, ornaments, and adornments inspired by the sea, and I hope you’ll all take a moment to show their shop some love.

there were sketches.  Lots of sketches.  Rearranging, dissecting, grouping, collecting, and visualizing of sketches.  It’s indecisiveness in it’s most vicious form, but the foundation of any project lies in a “simple” pencil sketch.

Don’t forget to EAT YOUR GREENS at my super fantastic online sale. (Which ends 10-26)

Oh and I had the pleasure of meeting two great Savannah Etsy Sellers yesterday, and one stellar organizer extraordinaire…(Miriam that’s you)…When you’ve finished shopping the Produce Stand, take a moment to check out Kathryn’s stellar jewelry, and Jeri’s whimisical paper mache.

rain got you down?
