bloom & grow & a free printable!

We are playing outside every day in the sunshine and dirt/mud depending if I turn on the water hose. It's been messy and wonderful.

Spring has definitely sprung around these parts.
To celebrate Spring's arrival AND the new things going on with Pen & Paint
I have a FREE printable for you.



Minor details: You can print it as an 8x10 or a 5x7.
This is a sketch I drew, digitally colored, and added text to.
This image is not for sale and is for personal use only.
If you share be kind and be sure to give credit & link back.

Many big thanks to Joy & Mandy for helping me find 
my way in this new world of sketching.
And this is just a small "thank you" to all of you who have supported me & my art!


PS. I did make a new Facebook page for Pen & Paint. You can go like it HERE (pretty please).

happy changes

{sketch in progress}

{My first sketch turned into a print that I am going to
be sharing as a free printable soon. Yay!}

{A free printable I created for Beautifully Rooted
You can download it and print it for free!}

I had no idea when I took a break I would discover a new way of creating art.
I simply found some pens and note pads in a closet.
What I have been using as a creative outlet has become another way for me to 
"add beauty to the world" 

I had no idea until yesterday I would be changing things around, like big time.
If you look at my header here you will see it is now
"pen & paint".
I have changed my blog to www.penandpaintblog.com.
If you subscribe/follow there is no changes on your part, but I have added an option to have posts delivered by email (look over in the left column).
The shop has changed too! Thankfully Etsy allows name changes and if you marked my shop as a favorite or an item as a favorite it is still there, the name of my shop is just different.
On Twitter and IG I am now @penandpaints.
Again no changes on your part, just the name change.
However, if you follow Paint Me a Picture on Facebook you will need to "unlike" that page and "like" the new one

Oh and I got a fancy new email address:

The shop is still on vacation, but it will be open again soon
with new products, and as I am sure you have guessed
it will include my sketches, prints and paintings.

Happy changes!
Thank you all for your encouragement and support.
