I’m super excited about my latest addition to my Etsy shop. I’ve been toying with the idea of designing some clipart for a while now, but something else keeps taking it’s place in line. Finally, I pulled together some of my favorite designs from the chicken egg counting sheets and other designs I had on hand. To those I added this brand new chicken coop design and wala! Chicken clipart for you to use in your diy projects.

Do you want to create a sign? Perfect!

Do you want to make your own forms or recording sheets? These are for you!

School worksheets or your class or homeschool? Yes!

Bullet Journals, coloring books and more? Of course! Available in color and black and white!

New Chicken Coop Signs

I know I have a wide range of people who are readers here. Raise your hand if you are a chicken person (okay… leave a comment?). If you aren’t sure, you probably aren’t. A chicken person doesn’t necessarily have chickens themselves, but they want to. And not all people who have chickens are chicken people. (Am I right?)

And of course, among chicken people there is a wide variety as well. Some just love the birds and others make fancy coops and decorate them seasonally. (Someday I want that to be me.)

We have chickens in a quarter of our garden with a somewhat ugly but functional coop. I made it myself with the help of 3-12 year olds (6 of them). I guess you could say that I’m a kid person at this phase of my life. 🙂 Anyway, I digress.

While I dream of what I would do if homeschooling and gardening, laundry and occasional house cleaning didn’t take up all my time, I made some really cute (sorry, I’m biased) chicken coop signs for you to decorate your chicken spaces with!

They are in my Etsy shop now. Head over to grab the bundle for yourself for 30% off this week. Coupon code COOPSIGNS30 or click here.

Frame them and and hang them under shelter if you have it. I think they would be cute mounted to wood and sealed from the elements and hung on the outside. Your call. What would you do with them? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

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.

Keep records in style with these new forms!

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.

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!

If you like my Chickens and Trucks design, would you please pin the image below or share it on other social media!

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!

Also, if you like my shop, please pin the following image or share it on other social media!

April Egg Log – Bullet Journal Style Record Page

April Egg Log - Bullet Journal Style Egg Record/ Log for keeping track of your flock's egg production.

Remember these?

Last year I hand drew some bullet journal pages to keep track of my chicken eggs. Sadly, we’re poor on the follow through and rarely remember to fill them in. 🙂 But they were fun to make and some of you really liked them. I know that you are really good at keeping records about your flock, and I want you to have some cute record sheets to use!

Watercolor Chicken Artwork by mamasbrush

I created some cute chicken artwork just for the occasion. I’ve set myself a goal of creating these egg logs each month, but life does get busy in the spring/summer, so no promises. 🙂 If you don’t want to miss any, click to “follow” in the side bar! 🙂

Download your April Egg Log here.

You can print them full size and put them in your 3 ring chicken or farm binder or on a clipboard. You can also shrink them when you print and glue or tape them into your bullet journal. Let me know what you decide.

Update March 2022: New in my Etsy shop… I now have egg logs for all 12 months with seasonal artwork to bring some fun and whimsy to your daily tasks! Come on over to check them out!

April Egg Production Tracker for the Bullet Journal

***Updated 4/2/19: I have begun making printables for your homestead.  Find a growing library of them here.

April Egg Production Tracker

I’ve been busy here with non art related things.  First off, we had baby chicks in the house.  Then there is the outside work when weather was good.  And in my “free” time, I’ve been working on my now six year old’s quilt (it was a birthday gift for her 4th birthday.)  Ahem.

So, I was excited to have a couple things in the art world take priority this week.  Two are cards I worked on for ladies at church (hopefully I’ll be able to share them soon.)

This is the other.  April was starting and I needed somewhere to log our chicken egg production.  So I thoroughly enjoyed a couple hours of quiet yesterday afternoon, after I got the kitchen clean, finishing up this page in my farm journal. 🙂

April Egg Production Tracker

I’m not thrilled with the colors.  I still say that kid’s markers work fine for this, but the color choices don’t always end up being exactly what I wanted.  Oh well.  It’s a bullet journal.  I’m choosing to let go of perfection and just enjoy the process. 🙂

Egg Production Record Page in my Farm Bullet Journal

I haven’t had a lot of time for extras lately, and definitely not for any finished projects!  Good weather means outside chores and work in the garden and pruning trees and vines.  Homeschooling and getting dinner on the table are about all I have energy for after that (if I get even that much done).

I have been working on my new bullet journal pages, though, in little moments, and although not many of them are finished either, I did finish our page for recording egg production and chicken related finances.  We are trying to be better about tracking numbers for later reference and to see if our measures for saving money are helping.  I just love that it can be pretty at the same time.  (Behind the scenes: I have been using my kid’s markers alongside my artist pens for bullet journaling.  Fancy markers – or pens for that matter – aren’t necessary to do this!)

Here it is a little closer:

The kids love to put the numbers in each morning and evening when we collect eggs.

I’m hoping to have my March pages and my new farm specific bullet journal for you to see soon.  Maybe even before the end of the month. 🙂  With two birthdays and a “twins” baby sprinkling over the next couple weeks, I’m not making any promises.  But at least you got this sneak peak. 🙂

Pushing through some quirks

img_3027

I’ve been known to be anti-trendy.  Which is to say that if it’s trendy, I prefer to stay away from it… even if I like it.

I’m not sure why I’m like that, but I am… sorry.

That’s why it was so weird a couple weeks ago when I, standing in front of the tape display at Office Max, told my husband I wanted a roll of washi tape.  I blame Shayda!  Apparently I really am last on this boat because my mom and my sister both have collections of the stuff.  Who knew?  But I loved how Shayda used washi tape in her bullet journal.

img_3028

Yes, I know.  Bullet journals are all the rage right now too.  But I’ve resisted… until now.  Who has time for all that non-sense (sorry… not hating, I promise!)  I have secretly been stalking bullet journalers on youtube lately.  Have you ever seen a “plan with me” video?  Well, I’ve been watching some of my favorite youtube artists plan their bullet journals and part of me wants to jump in.  But….  I use my phone for my calendar stuff… and it’s working for me.  And I have all my homeschool planning in an excel sheet… and it’s working for me.  I don’t NEED a bullet journal.

But then…

img_3024
Just think, if I do a little chicken doodle every month on my egg tracker page, I may figure out how to draw them. 🙂

What about all the things I don’t currently have a system for?  Like tracking my chickens?

img_3026

A spot for recording what I’m thankful for?

img_3025

My Bible reading highlights? (This doubles as a tracker for reading and meditating on God’s Word every day for me… in addition to whatever I’ve done with the kids.)

I don’t usually jump in to stuff like this in the middle.  I’m a “start January 1st or not at all” kinda girl.  But I’m working on that.  I didn’t have the dot grid journal I wanted either, so I decided to just jump in with what I have as a sort of practice (see, I’m pushing through those quirks).  I’m trying it out.  I’m using the rest of this only half used composition notebook.  It’s not perfect, but it’s working.  And I’ve told myself I’m only doing this on trial for now.  (That’s less pressure for perfection!)

Going forward I’m thinking about using two different bullet journals, one for the “farming” side of my life and one for everything else.  If I can get a book I like, I’d like to start the “farming” journal in March (I’d better get on this).  My “regular” journal would include my prayer journal pages, gratitude, reading highlights, habit trackers (including weight loss), and homeschooling pages.  I’d like to start this one in July when we start our new school year (its a compromise to not starting January 1st).

The best part… when I don’t have time to be illustrating and painting like I would like to, a bullet journal gives me a chance to do something creative in little bits of time and to experiment with less pressure.  And something to share here… even if they are still pretty beginner level. 🙂  Some of my pages may be fancy and others may be plain.  We’ll see what I have time for.

 

Do you have a bullet journal?
