I hope everyone’s holiday season is going well! 🎄I’m about 75% done with shopping, the house is only about 50% clean at any given time, and I’m probably consuming 200% the recommended amount of caffeine every day 😜

Last night I took a break from working on orders to create these butterflies 🦋 I don’t usually do seasonal designs.. even as there’s snow on the ground I feel inspired to create more vibrant nature pieces. Maybe it’s my longing for warmth and sunshine?

When you make a purchase from a small business, you’re doing more than just buying something. You’re helping a person chase their dream. You’re supporting someone’s art, craft, restaurant, and so much more (you get the gist 😉) You’re buying a work of HEART. I speak for all my fellow small business owners when I say that any love for our business means the WORLD to us. The small purchases mean just as much as the big ones!
.
.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for doing all of that for me. Thank you for helping me support my family. Please enjoy 15% off your personalized ornament, spoon, or sticker order with code SMALLBIZ 💛 All original artworks are on sale too, no code necessary. My shop link is in my bio!

Spending our Sunday eating the gingerbread house we made yesterday & watching Disney movies 💛 (and packaging orders during naptime 😉) Lots of personalized spoon orders this week, thank you!

Some people, especially those who haven’t tried woodburning, may think that text is one of the easiest things to burn. I think it’s quite the opposite, requiring a ton of patience and a super steady hand. But there’s nothing better than turning on some music and zoning out in the details of burning text. 💛🔥

Every week until Christmas I’ll be running a sale on a different item in my shop. This week my photo ornaments are on sale! I make some for my family every year with an updated family photo.

I’ve been trying to capture this woodburning among an actual swallowtail, which is native to our area. I was so happy when this piece found a new home yesterday. Before I ship it, I tried one more time to capture a photo with one on our nature walk this morning. My efforts failed, but I did find this Cecropia Moth caterpillar which was pretty rad. 🐛

I just wanted to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the love you’ve shown me & my new book! 💛 This is seriously a dream come true. A couple years ago, I was a new mama, just looking to spark my artistic skills back up after baby. I desperately craved a creative outlet, and I needed to do something for me. *Insert Elysian Woods.* I never thought in my wildest dreams that it would grow into what it’s become. There is absolutely nothing better than receiving a message from one of you letting me know I’ve inspired you to create your own art. I’m so grateful for this platform. Pinch me! .

So... I’ve been keeping a little secret 🤫


Throughout my journey as an artist, I’ve received many messages asking for beginner tips and tricks for pyrography. I’m really excited to announce that I have the opportunity to share my knowledge with you all with my new book! This project started at the end of last year and I seriously poured my heart into it - I truly hope to reach my goal of teaching and inspiring new woodburners!


You’ll learn everything you need to know to begin woodburning - tools, safety, materials, and beginner techniques, all with helpful photos! I’ll walk you through 9 fun projects (with original design templates included!) I have shared my best tips & advice... I guess you could say I’m an open book. 😉


Modern Woodburning will be available soon for purchase at JoAnn’s, AC Moore, and Amazon. I’ll be sharing more about this soon. 💛

Stickers are live! 🎉
ElysianWoods.Etsy.com

Whenever I go to an art/craft show and find an artist I admire, I always try to make a purchase to show my support. It’s not always feasible to buy an original piece, so if they have smaller reproductions I really like that.

I finally decided to try it out myself and start with some stickers!

There have been some pieces that you all have really loved but I can’t recreate over and over so this is a way for more people to get their hands on my art.

I hope you love them!

Artists appreciate the smaller purchases just as much as the big ones. 💛

So pumped to finally show you all what I’ve been working on lately! @gilsonsnow reached out & asked if I’d like to collaborate with them on some woodburned snowboards and I automatically said YES! It’s seriously so much fun to burn on new “canvasses” and experiment with different types of wood. Their cores are made from locally sourced Pennsylvania poplar which I think is pretty groovy. I can’t wait to see this ladies mandala board when it’s finished! ✌🏼

Is #TipThursday a thing? I wanted to share a little bit of my woodburning process for animals! They are still quite daunting for me as an artist, but I feel so accomplished and proud when they’re done (and turn out okay! 😉)
.
.
If I’m burning off a reference photo as I did here, I bring up the photo in an editing app (or Word works too.) I change the photo to black and white and slightly adjust the contrast. This helps me visualize the light and dark spots with ease and accuracy. I print out the photo and keep it close by while I’m burning as reference.
.
.
Above all, just have fun with it. Your art doesn’t have to be photo realistic. Challenge yourself. And be proud of yourself for trying new things. ✌🏼💛

Elysian Woods turns 2 today! 🎉 It’s been quite a wild ride so far. So much learning. So much growing. And still so much to learn! These past two years have presented me with some beautiful opportunities that I’m very grateful for. I’m incredibly excited for year two & for more of my grand ideas coming to life. Owning a business means wearing many different hats and constantly finding balance between work and life. I haven’t quite nailed the balance part, but I’m trying! 😉
