Clipart & Coffee Talk with Whimsy Workshop

Hopefully, everyone has recovered from all of the activities from July 4th.

Join me today for Clipart and Coffee Talk with the sweet, Susanna from Whimsy Workshop Graphics.  
I found Susanna when her Spring Flower Clipart was featured in the TpT Newsletter(hint: it's free, go get it).  I love her doodle style.  I also love that little blue birdie in her logo.    
I'm from Vancouver Canada. I'm only about an hour from the US border, so we've made lots of trips to the US with the family. What I like is that up here it's rainy and stays green in winter, and the summer is full of the beach and summer festivals! People here are definitely very relaxed and outdoorsy!
I used to do more traditional artwork and graphics - painting, printmaking, and sculpture. I worked under a lovely local impressionist painter named Ron Hedrick (rhedrick.com) for years, but had to stop when my husband's mother passed away suddenly and we became full time caretakers for my father in law who has dementia. If any of you have been through this, it's quite heart wrenching. One day I said "We need more whimsy in our lives right now!" I began drawing cute little animals to cheer my kids up, started using them in my school printables, and when teachers started asking me to share them, Whimsy Workshop was born! My goal is to make clip art that is functional and engaging, but also makes your heart smile a bit when you see it!
I think it's similar to what musicians must feel when they hear their song on the radio for the first time! I'm honored and so happy to share my little creations!

Susanna is going make someone VERY Happy! 
She wants to give 1 Lucky Winner, 2 Great Prizes!

Plus, you'll get Winner's Choice!  
I would definitely pick the 3 Little Pigs Bundle, but you can choose anything you want:)


This Little Piggy can't wait for the Hill Country!

I just love this series! Susanna is such a fabulous clip artist! I loved getting to learn a bit more about Whimsy Workshop, especially the meaning behind the name. Her work definitely makes me smile! Thanks so much for the chance to win!
