Little Spy greeting card by Kayla King for |

Minted has a new selection of customizable greeting cards and birthday cards available on their site.  What’s so great about it?  Don’t you just love being able to buy one card? Not a set, just one.  And what if you could customize it with the recipient’s name?  Well, I’d feel pretty special if I received a card like that.

Up top, there, is my Little Spy.  She’s on the lookout for a good party, as any tween girl would be.

I thought I’d share some of my other favorites from the site (although there are so many great ones, it was really hard to narrow it down to four). Clockwise from top left:

Hello Spring: Desktop Wallpaper Freebie | tinyinklings.comI’m really having a love affair with Spring this year, enjoying being outside, sitting in the sun and reading or drawing.  Aside from my allergies going bonkers, it’s been a really lovely spring on the Central Coast.

I had fun with my watercolors and made up a little desktop wallpaper featuring hand painted typography and florals.  The inspiration for the word ‘Spring’ came from my sugar snap peas climbing up their trellis out back.  I hope you enjoy it!

Playful Dot Minibook by Kayla King for
Hi friends! I have a new product that just launched on Minted so I wanted to share it with you here. I designed a sweet birth announcement for Minted called “Playful Dot” using the minibook format. I really love this product line because it’s so versitile and there are so many creative ways to personalize it with text. I hope you like it!

Desert Fox by Kayla King for |
I’m excited to announce that my art print Desert Fox is now available for sale on! I’ve been waiting a while for this one to launch, so I’m super excited to share that the day is here!  I created the print in three different colorways in the hopes that THIS fantastic Mr. Fox will find a home in a little boy OR little girl’s room.

I put together a little nursery inspiration below, how I would design a nursery around this piece. I imagine a little explorer, curious about the stars and planets in the sky and the animals and bugs on the earth.  Mint, yellow, and neutrals round out the room with a simple white crib anchoring the space.

FREE printable woodland critter classroom valentines for kids | tinyinklings.comWhen I was in elementary school, there was always that one kid that sat in the corner and ate his boogers that no one really liked.  It was so sad on Valentines day when the popular girls had a hoard of cards and candy at their desk and the strange boy didn’t get any. I hope that kid grew up, started showering, and is married to a supermodel.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and while John and I aren’t huge celebrators on the day of aside from cards for one another, I wanted to share a little something with you guys.  These sweet little valentines are really for the kiddos to fill out and hand out to their classmates at school.  I think it’s great that most schools now ask that if kids are going to bring valentines to hand out, they bring enough for the whole class.  This way, Booger Bobby gets one, too.  It’s always nice to share.

P.S.  If you heart this freebie and would like to share it, I would love that!  Please make sure you link back to this original post.  Thanks!

I (finally!) got a new sketchbook over the weekend and had a lot of fun testing out some new illustration styles. I’m going back to my art school style and trying to be looser in my sketching. Below are a few of the pieces I’m working on.

Well, hello there Poppyseeds journal.  I see you’re looking mighty lovely today.  What’s that, you say?  Oh, I see.  Yes, you are indeed the perfect gift for a dear friend or the best mother in the world. You come with 40 pages of lined, graph, or blank paper inside?  Oh, my!  Don’t be improper, dear, you’re making me blush!

Okay, enough with that.  I’ve got a new journal design available on Minted today!  Poppyseeds was designed to coordinate with my Poppy Fields stationery; a perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for friend or mother (in-law).  I’ve got quite a few girlfriends to shop for this holiday, so journals and stationery from Minted are actually really perfect.  All my shopping done in one place.  And since Minted journals are customizeable at only $16 a pop, this gift won’t break the bank, either!  Boom!  Done.
