For my 30th birthday Kim made the beautiful drawing above for me. It's very small, probably 3"x5", but Purple Coneflowers crowd the frame with so much energy and life. It's one of my favorites! I thought I'd share Kim's website- http://kimensch.com/ and Etsy shop- http://www.artworkonpaper.etsy.com/.
Kim is participating in the ArtPrize event in Grand Rapids, MI where visitors vote for their favorite artist. The event goes September 23 - October 10 2009. Check out Kim's work at The Open Concept Gallery - 50 Louis St. NW in Grand Rapids.

That's a mouthful! But "Wheel" is one of my favorite poses. This version has an extended leg which is challenging, to say the least... but its such a great pose for building strength in the arms and shoulders, while opening up the chest and back. I always feel like I can breathe a bit easier after this pose. This print is now available in my shop!

I broke out my paints, found inspiration and have several new paintings in the works. I suspect that my return to a (semi) regular yoga practice may have something to do with it. It's very humbling to return to yoga after many months of not being able to practice at all, and especially after having a C-section. Poses are different, my body is different, and it forces me to really stay in the moment and appreciate what I am capable of doing. Just returning to movement stirs the creative energy in me. I will share the new paintings very soon, I promise.

I'm very excited to announce that I am opening a New Etsy Shop!! No longer will yoga prints and jewelry mingle in my shop. The prints and cards now have their very own store, where I can focus on providing quality products and inspired designs. I'm calling this a "soft" opening, as I fill the store and create this store's look. For now, you can still get prints and cards in both shops, but in the very near future I will be switching over completely to http://www.lindsaysatchell.etsy.com/ And then we'll have a Grand Opening, complete with sales, special offers and maybe... some brand-new, never seen before images!
What a great idea! The fabulous and very clever Raelynn of Mommy Necklaces makes these super pretty and durable necklaces that you can wear while having a little one. They're unbreakable, toxin-free, and let moms wear jewelry again. Especially helpful while baby nurses- keeps hands busy and baby focused.
I had the pleasure of meeting Raelynn and her staff, and participating in a photo shoot for her new product line. That's me in the pink shirt! I met some great moms there (and cute babies!) and we even made a mini-vacation out of the trip. Moms and jewelry... right up my alley!!

Next up, a reversable shoulder bag from Lula Louise! I'm not sure I did it right, but it turned out just fine. There weren't any pics to help, so I did have to rip some seams and start over, but I did figure it out eventually. I decided on a magnetic snap closure so my junk doesnt fall out all over. Here it is... You can tell I LOVE my new fabric:
Of course, burp cloths continue but you don't need to see those. How about instead I show you some pics of the nursery?!! Here you go! We're happy with how it has turned out. It's super cozy and enjoyable to be in there. If you look closely, you can see prints from fellow Etsy folks- like Valentina Designs, Natasha Wescoat, and Nut and Bee. Now all we need is the baby!

Jess is spreading abundance in the form of images... and who doesn't love to be reminded of good things?!! So if you're ever feeling bummed out by the news, the economy or the rainy weather, go to Pecannoot and feel better.

...a nursing cover! Why not? I like to give myself a little challenge and do something different, so today I tried this tutorail on how to make a nursing cover. Complete with a little pocket! I feel pretty good about it, and would say it's a success!!

Finally! I'm very excited to offer 5 of my favorite and best-selling yoga images as notecards. You can check them out HERE in my shop! These are great to send to a friend or loved one. Or you can frame them as a mini print. Wouldn't they make a great little collection, hung salon-style on your wall? Perhaps one would be a perfect little gift for a special yoga enthusiast. Got another idea? Do share!
Also, I have been busy creating those bibs and burp cloths for Julie's fundraiser. I made a baker's dozen of each and she sold a good number of them at a craft fair this weekend. Here's a pic of the last set, a fun pink and yellow paisley design. Too cute! If you want a set, let me know and I will hook you up! firstname.lastname@example.org
Coming soon... pics of the painting I made this weekend (nothing special, but a return to watercolors) and the new cards that I've been promising. They are great and I can't wait to list them in my shop.
OK, off to work on more baby gowns. Maybe the Cuba tshirt, maybe the Detroit Tigers 2005 shirt, or maybe the "Happy Birthday, Daddy" one in bright yellow. We'll see!
