♥ I heart art ♥ Sugar Fresh

Meet Lindsay, the creative designer behind Sugar Fresh.  If you haven't seen Lindsay's work on Etsy's Front Page just keep watching.  Her prints are popping up on the FP frequently, for good reason - 
they are SO sweet and so fresh.

When did you first begin creating art?

When I was in high school I discovered I had a knack for graphic design. I went on to study graphic design briefly in college, but then changed my major to accounting. (I know, two different ends of the spectrum!) This past year after becoming a stay-at-home mom I have rediscovered my love for art and design. I love that I can be creative while still spending my days with my daughter.

What is your favorite or most sentimental creation and why?

My most sentimental creation would have to be the birth poster I created for my daughter Lily. I love that it can be hung in her room so we can always be reminded of that very special day. This same piece will be available to customize for any child in my shop very soon.

What people/things inspire your work?
I find inspiration all around me. The outdoors, my daughter, books, my church, and Etsy. I love websites and blogs that feature design and art. Most of my art was created from random ideas that just pop into my head.

Is there a project you have always dreamed of creating? What would it be?
I have lots of ideas and projects that I am always dreaming up. I love making patterns and would really enjoy creating my own fabric line. I would also love to create stationary such as invitations and announcements. As any mother knows, free time is hard to come by, so it may take me awhile to accomplish all of my big ideas!

Be sure to visit Lindsay's shop and blog for more of her {sweet} work.
