Sweet Shoppe Saturday

Welcome to the first edition of Sweet Shoppe Saturday!
I am so excited to share these shops with you!


Michele is the genius behind Diesel and Juice. 
Her creativity is profound, and her artwork is lovely.
I asked her to create a piece of art for my husband of his beloved German Shepherd, and she went above and beyond my request.
He is printed out in cartoon form, with every detail precise.
I love her work so much!

Her shop is full of all kinds of artwork; I can assure you that you will find something there that you love!
Here's some more information about Diesel and Juice, from the words of Michele herself:

Diesel + Juice is an illustration project that was inspired by my love for my English Bulldog Diesel and feisty feline, Juice. I offer both custom and pre-made prints of the most adorable pets, creatures, and objects.  All illustrations are drawn using Adobe Illustrator and printed in house with UltraChrome archival inks on premium archival paper. All produced and shipped entirely with love, by me, Michele.
 Diesel is our four year old English Bulldog… She’s 29 pounds and everything the name Diesel implies – except she’s female. She burps, farts, snorts, snores, and even throws up in her mouth and eats it. She is constantly making you laugh one way or another and is quite possibly, the cutest dog ever to exist.
Juice is a 20 pound cat. We have tried to get her to lose weight but thus far, have had no luck. She is like most cats and has her own rules. Her two most important rules are as follows:
1. Do not pet me unless you feel like getting bitten or have food to give me.
2. Feed me at least 3 times a day or I’ll do whatever it takes to irritate you, including but not limited to: chewing on anything plastic, scratching on large loud objects, pawing at the items on your nightstand to make a clanking sound, sitting next to your face while you sleep purring, etc.

Katie is the cutie pie behind Paper from Heaven.
Her ability to make me laugh in her blog posts is effortless, and her handmade shop is full of high quality pieces that I swoon over.
My kids are addicted to their crayon rolls that she made them.
Really, there would be major temper tantrums if I didn't have those crayon rolls in the car at all times!
I am forever grateful for her perfect stitches in her work.

Katie's shop is called Paper from Heaven, and her blog is called Raising Oranges.
Here is some more information about Katie and her life as a blogger and shop owner from the words of Katie herself:

"I'm a stay at home mom with a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics. I like math, but really only chose that major because it required the least writing and reading. I know you think I'm crazy!

I married my best friend in May 2004, and since then God has blessed us with 3 loud, crazy, energetic boys. The road has been rough but well worth it. When we were pregnant with our first child, my husband told me "If we have a boy, I'm going to dress him in orange so I can't lose him." Three boys later, we dress them all in orange...often."

Beth is the sweetheart behind Through The Eyes of the Mrs.
Her blog is bright and fun, and her new shop is overflowing with handmade pieces that make you feel pretty.
I am a huge fan of her tote bag, and wear my headband often.
I am so glad that she decided to open up a new shop; she is so very talented, and the perfect shop owner to make transactions with!

 You will fall in love with her writing just as quickly as you will fall in love with her shop items!
Here is a little bit more about Beth from the words of Beth herself:

"I'm a vintage lover, thrifter, list maker, and crafter.
I have a thing for peach roses and sunshine.

I love to laugh and write from my heart.
I'm a mother to three and wife.
I am a daydreamer and believer in all things good.
I love to be inspired by things around me.
I love creating and finding new purpose for things.
 I love many things but first come my little ones and the Mr.
They make me want to be better everyday."
