I’m a secretary by day, graphic designer by night. I’m a very happily married woman (not kidding, just ask anyone), mother, and grandmother (still can’t believe that one). I love the Lord and give glory to Him in and for everything. We live in Texas (the hot part – ha) and we love to travel when we can
afford it. I’ve loved making graphics for years, beginning with PSP7 and upgrading to PSP8, which I still use occasionally. People, that version is old! It bothers me that Corel hasn’t seen fit to make PSP for Macs! I bought Photoshop Elements but now use Photoshop – the mother ship!! 🙂 I am attempting to learn Illustrator, but have fallen in love with my iPad Pro and that Apple Pen is awesome. I use the Procreate app to create more painterly type graphics, and occasionally Adobe Draw with the Graphics app for vector graphics.
I’ve loved the look of scrapbooking graphics ever since I first saw them. When I closed my last graphics site, which was for websets, I thought I was done making graphics, because I just didn’t see them being used with Blogger and WordPress becoming prevalent. Shoot, I should have learned how to make blog wear … hmmm. Anyway, I found myself saving things on Pinterest and hoarding freebie-anything-kit related. So, I decided why not just get back into it and learn how to do this? I did, and now I’m turning my attention to surface pattern designs using my own sketches and doodles. I also have found I like making stationery type items, too.
I’ve learned a LOT since first dipping my graphic toes into this adventure and love creating a variety of graphics. I hope you enjoy your visit and will find something useful, whether it’s freebies here or in my shops.
Thanks for stopping by.
I lost my sweet mother on July 9, 2014. I was about two years old in this picture. This picture represents Lavender Mint Graphics in a big way and here is why. Lavender Mint Graphics not only utilizes my own initials, but purple is my favorite color and mint green was my mom’s favorite color. When I was trying to decide on a name, this is the combo I ended up on. I shared it with her shortly before she passed and she, of course, loved the name.
Miss you, Mom, and love you always. 🙂
