A brand new website & sale

Friday, October 24, 2014

Hello hello all! I have so much exciting news and newness to share. It's been in the works for a while but it's finally here--a BRAND NEW WEBSITE with silly gifs and everything! Yeehaw! Have a peek below!
To celebrate, have 20% off the entire shop with coupon code SHINYandNEW (valid now til Sunday, Oct. 26, 12 midnight).  All holiday goodies are now available, including the 2015 12-month Calendar pre-order (limited quantity printed), cards, holiday stickers, and gift tags.
This past weekend, I ventured to the middle of nowhere, Mojave Desert for the RiSe Lantern Festival. Wow! What a beautiful experience, and it's left me feeling incredibly inspired. I churned out a few illustrations during my Instagram Original Art sale yesterday and am still going strong! So expect to see a few more listed in the shop this Saturday, 9am PST to add to the shiny and new festivities.
As you can tell from the schedule to the right, I'm taking it easy this holiday season.  I'm only participating in three events, but hot diggity, they'll be great! Expect new limited edition Totoro prints at DesignerCon, and weekend specials and giveaways at the Holiday Pop-Up Shop. Everything will be available online for those I can't visit.

I also had the pleasure of speaking with Courtney of Savor Good. You can read the interview here. It's a great, detailed, honest read about my business, travels, dilemmas, and personal milestones. Real talk!

Last weekend for the Pop-Up Shop + Surprise Gifts!

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Last weekend to visit the Le Petit Elefant Summer Shop, with surprises & silliness in store.
Wow, August flew by quickly! I can't believe the end of the month is already here! I'm so grateful for all the lovely folks who visited, from high school friends, long-time customers, Instagram followers, and people who just stumbled upon it on their way to Mrs. Field's cookies. THANK YOU for all the support & love!! I've had such a wonderful time running my very first pop-up shop, and fingers crossed, this won't be the last one this year (I'll keep you all posted ;).

In keeping with my promise, I'll have a couple new items debuting on Friday, and a really REALLY fun, surprise, parting gift for my customers this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (August 29-31). 
Remember those origami fortune tellers? Well, if you spend $35 or more, you get to have your fortune told, revealing your FREE surprise gift. It could be a free original illustration, a tote bag, a coupon for the online store, a limited edition print... who knows! Come by for the final weekend, say goodbye and leave feeling like a kid again :).

Le Petit Elefant Summer Shop is now OPEN!

Friday, August 01, 2014

It's finally open! Months in the planning with only days to execute, I'm so excited to invite you all to my very first Pop-Up Shop. Step into the imaginative world of Le Petit Elefant as I take over a small part ofWestfield Valley Fair in conjunction with Pop-Ups by SJ Made. The #LPESummerShop features new art prints, stationery, rubber stamps, stickers, mason jars, and more!
Designed by me and produced by San Jose vendor Jiminy Stitch It, I have "Shop Local. Shop Love" Clink tote bags EXCLUSIVE to the #LPESummerShop. I'll be giving away tote bags to the first 10 customers who spend over $25 both this Saturday & Sunday (August 2 & 3). Get 'em while you can! At the end of the month, I'll put the remaining for sale online.
Preparing for & opening the pop-up was probably one of the toughest challenges I've had as a small business owner, and this wall is the element I'm most proud of. Come by the shop, take a picture in front of it (or anywhere in the shop), tag me on Instagram (@lepetitelefant , #LPESummerShop) and you'll get 10% off. Weeeee!!

OK everyone, thanks for reading and visiting! I hope you'll come to the shop. This moment is huge for me, and I'm so thankful you're all here to share this crazy adventure.

"INFINITESIMAL TO INFINITE - An intergalactic solo show in Houston, TX!

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

I'm coming to Houston everyone!! The land of BBQ, NASA and a wonderful museum district. 

I met Leila & her husband, the owners of Space Montrose, a little over a year ago at Renegade Craft Fair Austin. Leila, like many of her shop's patrons, is a geek at heart, and I thought it would be perfect to bring my illustrated explorations of space to her shop for a art exhibition. Won't you join us? It's the first exhibition in their new location, and the opening happens to fall on the summer solstice. So there's lots to celebrate!

I'll be sharing illustrations of intergalactic adventures, nostalgic & nerdy nods, and starry explorations so it'll be a good time. Also come and share your favorite eateries! Kevin and I are dying for good BBQ :)

Saturday June 21, 2014 (longest day of summer haayyyyy!)
7pm - 10pm
Show run June 21 - July 6
1706 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX 77098
