I have a long list of templates to add and birth announcements were not at the top of my list but this warm weather really made me want to do something with watercolors and flowers. I'm so excited to be able to wear my summer dresses, I want to go outside and roll around in the grass....but I won't because I've seen how many spiders we have in the country. HUGE spiders. I see them scatter as I walk through the grass. My dreams of running around my yard barefoot with my kids quickly faded as soon as Spring came and 5 million spider eggs hatched in my yard. I was the biggest Tom Boy growing up, I would have never of been caught in a dress. Getting older has made me "softer"....and I'm not just talking about my belly. My 5 year old and I had a long conversation about spiders yesterday. Every black spider is a "Black Widow". She saw a "Black Widow" wolf spider yesterday and asked her 1 year old brother to kill it for her. At her age I was putting black widows and other spiders in a bottle to watch them fight. The good 'ol days. My children need to start finding some cheap entertainment like that. Ok, maybe not Black Widows but Daddy Long Legs don't bite. I told my husband that Black Widows eat the male and of coarse my 13 year old daughter chimed in and said "and the babies eat the Mom". I'm going to have to Google that. I've gone from cute watercolor birth announcements to spiders.
Anyway, it was really nice to design some card templates again. I've been so busy helping with the backdrop company, I'm happy to be adding more content to Hazy Skies Designs again. The thing I really love about the backdrop company is we are working with other artists as well....painters, other graphic designers...so it's really fun to see the different styles and I feel like a kid in a candy store with each new design. There are some many backdrops that I'm dying to work with!
Have a wonderful day and I hope you are enjoying warm weather as well!

HSD Backdrops was originally set to launch 2 years ago! Can you believe we've been holding this excitement in for two years? We found out we would be welcoming a precious baby boy in the summer of 2012 so the launch date was pushed back. Just after our little guy was born we decided we wanted to move from Southern California to Idaho. My dream of leaving the big city for a small country town was finally going to come true. Starting a business and then shutting it down to move was not an option so again, HSD Backdrops was put on hold. Our home in California sold quickly and we were homeless for four months, while we waited for our home in Idaho to be finished. We decided it was the perfect time to fulfill another life long dream, traveling cross country! We borrowed my parents travel trailer, got on the freeway with no route planned and just went were the wind blew us. I've always been a gypsy at heart, taking advantage of any chance I got to travel. I didn't even care where, as long as it was out of Southern California and I could look out and see wide open spaces. Now you may think we're a little crazy, traveling with 3 children (1, 4 and 12 years old) in an 18 foot travel trailer, but it was the most amazing and memorable time of our lives. We knew our little guy (who turned one on the road, in Pennsylvania) would not remember this wonderful adventure, so we tried to get a photo of him in front of as many monuments and national parks as possible, in what we called "the baby backpack photos". I'm expecting many of these photos to make it in my children's wedding slide show one day!Here we are two years later, all settled in and ready to go! We hope you love our backdrops and welcome any ideas of backdrops you would like to see!We want to thank all of our awesome customers for your support and helping Hazy Skies Designs grow!
