Monthly Egg Log for Your Chickens

Monthly Egg Counting Log with Cute Artwork for Chicken Keepers | mamasbrush 

Keep records in style with these new forms!

This project has been a long time coming, and a lot of original artwork was created to make these extra special! I’ve been wanting to create these Egg Counting Sheets for a few years (ever since I made one for for the month of April a few years back), and the drawing tablet I got for my birthday last fall was just the push I needed! I’ve been working on them for several months and I’m super excited to have them done and ready for your farm or homestead needs!

Click here to find them in my Etsy shop!

UPDATE 2023: You can also find these egg counting sheets in my Whole Coop Chicken Mega Bundle with my other chicken products. Click here to find that.

Each page has chicken themed artwork that matches the season. You may recognize the chickens from a fabric design I shared lately (available for sale here.) The chickens from that fabric were originally from these egg counting sheets.

You can keep track of how many eggs you collect each day, any expenses from the month and your gross and net sales (if you sell your eggs.) There is also a section for writing any notes about your chickens or things you need to do or buy.

Dandelions at Play – fabric design

Dandelions at Play Fabric Design | mamasbrush #dandelions #dandelionillustration #childrenplaying #blowingdandelions #younglove #nurserywallpaper #childrensroom

This week’s theme at Spoonflower was Weeds. I thought and thought about how I could uniquely represent that theme, but I kept coming back to dandelions. Well, I thought, maybe I can at least use a different angle on them.

Different or not, I ended up creating this sweet print of children with dandelions. She is blowing the fuzz off a spent bloom and he is offering her a fresh one.

I don’t usually dabble in people, so this was a challenge for me. I changed my design half a dozen times over a weeks time. Then, the night before, my husband made some suggestions that turned my design on its head once more. (My designs are always better for his input!)

Tuesday morning found me working on it still. I finished it with only a couple hours to spare. As it turns out, there was a flaw in the copy I submitted. The flower he is holding in this pic was on the wrong side of his hand (Stem showing). Oops! I guess I’ll never know whether it would have been more popular without that mistake. Oh well. I’ve fixed it up in time to share it with you. Dandelions at play! What do you think?

Be Transformed Sign for Spring/Easter Decorating

Be Transformed Sign for Spring/Easter Decorating | mamasbrush #chicks #Easterdecor #springdecor #Romans122 #Bibleverse #springsign #springtieredtray

A couple years ago I painted this in my art journal.

A few weeks ago I brought that painting into Illustrator and created a wall hanging for the International Women’s Day Spoonflower Design Challenge.

This weekend I added it to my Etsy shop as a digital download.

Be Transformed Sign for Spring/Easter Decorating | mamasbrush #chicks #Easterdecor #springdecor #Romans122 #Bibleverse #springsign #springtieredtray

I love this verse in the Bible. “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2 This art print is a cute way to be reminded throughout the day that we are not to be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by renewing our minds with God’s Word.

I’ve offering this print at 33% off for my blog readers for the next week. Enter coupon code TRANSFORMED33.

Praise the Lord ~ Ladybug Verse Print

Praise the Lord ~ Ladybug Verse Print | mamasbrush #ladybugs #digitaldownload #Verseprint #whimsicalart #springartprint #summerartprint

I first shared about this Ladybugs in the Grass print 4 years ago just after my (now) 10 year old daughter’s 6th birthday (Ladybug theme).

The verse is decorated with grasses, flowers and ladybugs. She loves ladybugs and adored this piece. Sometime in the last couple years the painting went missing and she was so upset. Her face just lit up tonight when I printed out this new version for her to hang next to her bed. The artwork has been reworked digitally for distribution and is ready to be downloaded and printed by your favorite printer or at home for immediate display or gifting!

The print is listed in my Etsy shop now and is available to you, my beloved readers, for 33% off for the next 7 days.

Empty Tomb Print in a Farmhouse Style

“Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed!”
~John 20:29~

This is a digitized watercolor print I took out of my art journal. I shared it here a few years ago. I just love this verse… how Jesus was talking about me!

It is similar to the print I shared in my last post, but this one has a more farmhouse feel in my opinion… less whimsy. My husband definitely likes this one better than the other (I love both!)

Let me know in the comments… which one is your favorite? This one or the one with the bunny?

This digital download is also available in my Etsy store as an 8×10 and 5×7 print (you get both sizes for one price) for you to download and print yourself. I’m offering this at 33% off for the next 7 days exclusively for my blog readers (coupon code EMPTYTOMB33). Head over there to get your discounted print today.

My Fabric Design For Sale

Chickens and Trucks Fabric Design | mamasbrush #oldtruck #farmhouse #chickens #fabric #surfacepatterndesign #pastelchickens

Chickens and Trucks is a fabric design I entered into the Spoonflower Challenge this last week. I am really happy with the way it turned out. We were supposed to use those three colors in our designs. I struggled with what to do until my husband suggested the trucks. I had a really cute design I was happy with, but I was getting mixed reviews from the family. It was my husband, again, who challenged me to push a little further.

I had these chickens from another project so I started to play with the colors. Who would think of making pink and green and purple chickens? I kept working with it. At first I was just going to do the chickens, but then it occurred to me that I could use both the chickens and the trucks… and “Chickens and Trucks” was born! I was super excited to see that people seemed to like it as well and I placed at #66 this week! See it on “real products” here.

I’m thrilled to announce that Chickens and Trucks is now available for purchase in my Spoonflower shop!

He is Risen-Empty Tomb Print for Easter

I told you yesterday that I opened my own Etsy shop, so some of you may have seen these in that post, but I want to share a little more about them. You may have seen my original watercolor version from a few years ago, but I had gifted that painting to a dear friend, so I I wanted to recreate it this year.

I love to find ways to incorporate the true celebration of Easter into our spring decor. This little bunny print, peeking into the empty tomb just makes me smile! 🙂 I love the touch of whimsy it can add to a child’s space, family room, or in my case, the kitchen. (I do plan to put this in my children’s bedroom, but the lighting in there is terrible, so I took the pics here.)

You can find these digital download in 8×10 and 5×7 sizes in my Etsy shop here. You can print it and display it in no time.

An Exciting Announcement

I know, this last couple weeks has been a little quiet around here. I came back from the women’s retreat behind on everything. My husband and a team of helpers worked hard all weekend to surprise me with a big construction project (which was great!), but that left the house a mess (still) as we finish up the remaining parts of the remodel. Furniture is piled up and mess seems to be everywhere. Still, homeschooling must go on. Meals must go on. And designing (apparently) must go on!! Among all the cooking and cleaning and teaching and laundry and designing, I’ve also been working on a “little” project. No wonder I haven’t been blogging!

So, the news…

I’ve opened an Etsy shop! Okay, this may not be as exciting for you as it is for me, but I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a long time. I have only a couple things listed so far, but I’m working on listing photos for some more products. Still, I couldn’t wait to share.

My shop will focus on digital downloads, which is the only reason I can undertake this whole venture at all. I would not be able to keep up with packaging and shipping physical items! Can you imagine? No.

So far in the shop are Easter prints to help you celebrate the real meaning of the season, but more are coming as soon as I can finish preparing the listing photos. I’m especially excited about one project that I’ve been working on for months! (Coming soon!)

And so, I would like to invite you to come on over and see my shop! Please click the heart to favorite my shop while you are there! Coupon codes for new items will be coming in the next few days just for my readers! Stay tuned!

Flower Pot Note Pad

Flower Pot Note Pad | mamasbrush #notepad #flowerpot illustration #wateringcan #springnotepad #gardeningnotepad #Luke1:37

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I would be using my flower pots design for the upcoming women’s retreat. (That retreat is this weekend, by the way and the main reason I haven’t posted this week.) At the time, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, and in reality, I expected to do more, but other projects took over.

In the end, I decided to make this Flower Pot Note Pad with them. It wasn’t practical to make a note pad for each of the 50-something ladies who are planning to join us, but I could include one in each of the gift baskets (pots, really) I’m putting together for the door prize. So that’s what I did.

I basically followed these direction for making the notepad, though, if I’d done it exactly this way (I did last time), it would have worked even better. One difference… I couldn’t find my padding compound. We looked everywhere I can think of. Nothing. I read somewhere that Modge Podge works too, so I tried it. (We always have lots of that around.) And it worked!

Pockets – A Repeating Pattern

Pockets - A Repeating Pattern | mamasbrush #fabricdesign #pockets #Spoonflower #Spoonflowerdesignchallenge

This past week I entered another Spoonflower Design Challenge. The theme was “Pockets”. I had a lot of fun designing, first, the actual pockets, then the various components.

I placed 253rd out of 655, which puts me in the top half, so I’m pleased with that. And it took over the second place spot in my own personal designs.

Hop over to see it on Spoonflower or even on “real” products. 🙂
