+Day 3: Galla Doodle

-- Today’s featured artist:
I'm Kim, and I love to sketch. I was born and raised in Michigan and I spend my time here with my husband, our daughter, and our german shepherd pup. When I am not working my corporate job, you can find me trying to get outside or playing house, but most likely toddler wrangling in my top knot and wool socks. My background is in Interior Design, which is where I both learned and fell in love with the art of marker renderings. I started offering commissioned work in early 2016 and haven't looked back. I love to hear the stories behind these portraits and am blessed to be invited to help you celebrate your memories. I create my work on an old wooden drafting table by the window, listening to podcasts and thinking about snacks. Pull up a chair, I'll bring the chai lattes. I can't wait to get started on your project.

+Day 4: Aurora Nail Polish

-- Today’s featured artist:
When I decided to turn this hobby into a business, I knew I wanted to name it after my daughter since she was the inspiration for the whole thing. And that's how Roar Nails was born. My daughter is 2 now and she always wants to "play polish" with mommy. Interesting enough, since I launched back in May, my two colors Aurora and Roree Sue, both named after my daughter, have the most views and are the most favorited items in my shop.

+Day 8: Stamped Frosting

Today’s featured artist:
Stamped Frosting began as a way to express my creativity and stay at home to raise my two little beauties. I've always loved to create, but after having my two little ladies, creating was more about crafting with a two year old and less about letting my creative light out. I discovered hand stamped jewelry one night when looking for a special keepsake with my girls names on it. I loved the look of the hand stamped jewelry I was seeing. But the creative itch inside me drove me to create my own.
