Geek Girl Brunch

Last Saturday was the first official Geek Girl Brunch here in Lubbock. If you're not familiar with GGB, their mission is to create a safe environment where identifying geek girls can be themselves to give voice, network, create friendships, inspire each other and hang out!

I was super excited that a chapter was started here where I would be able to meet local geeky ladies! Our theme was space, and I made some fun Doctor Who stickers for the occasion, along with buying a cute Doctor Who themed dress from Her Universe (because I needed another excuse to buy something cute online.).

Here I am after the brunch at Culture Clothing. Thought I'd snap a picture of my cute dress in the fitting room!

The brunch was held at Stella's, a really cute cafe that served the most amazing waffles!
 I'm hungry just looking at them! They had a butterscotch sauce with white + dark chocolate. Amazing! Of course I had coffee, even though I was tempted to get something with alcohol.

There were some cute prizes + swag, made by some of the lovely members! Like the fun geeky space stickers made by Sam (you can find her shop here).

These cute key chains were made by Cassie. 

Lisa won this cute hair piece by Alex! Super cute!

I was super fun and I can't wait for the next one! Is there a Geek Girl Brunch chapter in your city? What theme would you pick for your brunch? I think a Studio Ghibli theme would be super cute!

Doctor Who

I know several Whovians, although I don't think I can claim to be one since I haven't watched the entire Doctor Who series yet. I have watched enough (not in any particular order) to know I like the show and need to sit down and binge watch it on Netflix.

My favorite Doctors are 10 + 11 (I can't choose), and of course I really like Amelia Pond (our daughter may or may not be named Amelia from watching bits of this season during pregnancy). I like to skip all the scary episodes, and since my husband has watched it all he gives me the heads up (so I haven't watched any angel episodes).

You can thank my husband + Geek Girl Brunch Lubbock for lighting a fire under me to get this set done! They turned out super cute!

Stickers can be found here or here!

Drawing the Dalek + Sonic Screw Driver was a huge challenge for me since they're kinda of technical, but it was a good reason to watch the show late at night. I wanted to stick to my style of quirky cute, so obviously I didn't want them to look super realistic.

Phone case

You can also find some rad Doctor Who products in my Society6 shop! I plan to buy this case for my husband (but don't tell him!).

Here are a few more favorites:

Tee (unisex + womens)


  Laptop Sleeves

I'm hoping to get some fabric made soon for bows + hopefully some other fun products!

Who is your favorite Doctor?

Floral Whimsy

I've been working on several new product designs. Each of these new designs are limited edition right now, with only 2 brooches of each available.

Floral Whimsy is the first in this line to be released!

Recently I've taken to studying flowers and trying to draw/paint them in my style. I've always had a hard time drawing flowers because I felt like they all end up looking the same. I made a Pinterest board to help give me some floral inspiration.

I also created a repeating pattern (which is seen on her shirt) that you can purchase on products in my Society6 shop.

You can also snag mugs, throw pillows, and clocks in this pattern! These will make a great gift, if you are already thinking about Christmas like me!

I want to thank everyone for your support + patience as I work on releasing these new designs and working on more products (hoping to have notebooks soon!). Stay tuned for another new design release soon! xo
