so much to say…

well, this is what my life looks like today….
1piles, boxes, to-do lists and sooo much excitement! i love the new loft so much… here are a few shots. i still have *lots* of unpacking to do….
2345(i know… these are just a bunch of photos of "stuff"… i'm saving the wide shots for when it's more lovely… don't worry. just a day or two! i made sure to get "before" pictures of every room before we painted!)

my dad is super awesome!!!! jeremy's and my parents have been so kind and helpful in setting up my new home and our new studios. i couldn't be more thankful… i think we owe them unlimited gatorade, chocolate chip cookies and dr. pepper forever and ever.  seriously. 🙂7
and a pretty place to rest… 🙂

i'm working on a home for all things gocco… i love the packaging soo much. always have had a soft spot for anything japanese… 🙂10this morning when i woke up i was dying to play with the gocco (moving does that to you! i always have to set up my studio *first*!!) and this is what i made…..
11a little fall print (i used aged book paper that i collected a while back from a flea market….) the back to school/fall mood in the air is so exciting to me. These prints will be extra goodies for my etsy shop orders for a little while (as long as they last… :)). making fun extra goodies for my shop orders is something i've wanted to do for a while. moving to a new home seems like the perfect time to start things like this that i've been "intending" to do. great feeling. by the way, my shop has opened again (i took a break during moving week) and i have added some new items. ACEO originals (basically little cards with original designs on them) they are SOOO much fun to create. here are a few…12
13and i finallllly got around to taking a real photo of my underwear postcard set today. i've been wanting to make a mini book (something about a week of daily life) with these….1415oooh… and one more etsy related thing. i finally finished testing new papers (i've been wanting to switch to a different paper for my prints for a little while) and found the most perfect one. Velvet fine art paper. It has the most amazing texture. Here is a photo where you can really see the texture…16in other great news, i have finally hired a new assistant and i could not be more excited!

And another thing that I have been wanting to talk about…
For the past two years I have been working exclusively for KI Memories designing the Love, Elsie product line. It was truly one of the most fun and challenging experiences in my life. Your response and support for the products were so amazing. I really had a wonderful time.
Anyway, to make a long story quite short I resigned from my position with KI this past month. I have mixed feelings about that choice. On one hand, I loved the product line (both the designing process and the actual product) and I will be very sad not to see it coming out again. It was a very fun season in my life and certainly a huge learning experience!
I have some new dreams that have been taking over my mind and heart this past year. Some things I will share very soon. I am also very excited to work independently again on projects like books, designing and occasionally some teaching.  In fact, I haven't been so excited about the projects I was currently working on since I started writing my first book. There is one project in particular that will easily be the most ambitious and challenging that I've ever taken on. I'm tempted to tell you now, but don't worry, it's not too far away!So, there is my version of bad news/good news. Goodbye to Love, Elsie…. hello to new opportunities! I feel like a new season of life has started and I am really looking forward to it!

I don't tell you enough how much I appreciate you. Each day I read so many kind comments and e-mails. Thank you. Elsie

  • ohhh… first post.

    Sorry ??? to hear about you leaving KI, but I suspect it’ll be right and good for you in the end. I’m really looking forward to whatever else comes your way.

    *hugs*

  • I am SOOO sad to hear that I will not being seeing any more Love Elsie! That was one of my favorite product lines and I assure you it will be missed. : )

  • It’s fun and inspiring to hear about other artist’s dreams and ambitions and excitement… thank you for sharing! P.S. I love the colors you pick out for your spaces and am looking forward to seeing your completed loft :-).

  • A time for new dreams to become realities. I am so proud of you and behind you with every new undertaking. It only means good things for the rest of us, too!

    Love you, Elsie.

    Rachel

  • it totally made my day that you had a new post today! I’m so excited to see pictures of your new place. You are so creative and you inspire me! I look forward to seeing the new projects that you have coming up! kudos to you miss elsie

  • I wish you great success in your coming projects! I know how frustrating it can be not to be “physically” able to realize all the ideas that come to mind! can’t wait to read what it is all about:)

    by the way I made a dream last night and you were in it lool! I am french and so all that happened in this dream was in original english version! that’s nice for practising:)

  • awww… that’s the saddest thing i’ve ever read. i felt my heart crush… i *love* your products! and i’m so so soooo sad that nothing new will be coming out… i was really hoping for a halloween line… i could’ve died with happiness if you would’ve made a halloween line.

    oh well. good luck with everything.

    <3katie

  • your new loft is looking great!! The gocco desk is awesome. I’m the same way, with wanting to set up the studio stuff first. 🙂

    I’ll be sad that Love. Elsie won’t continue (I’ll have to find a new favorite!) but at the same time, so so excited with you, and for you!! I wish you all the bestest with your new opportunities. Can’t wait to see all the successes you’ll have in the future!

    You’ll always be my creative hero, and I’m thankful to the Love Elsie products for introducing me to you. <3

  • Yay! Pictures and you’re back! You’ve been missed! Can’t wait to see the “finished” loft shots! Awwww…so sad about Love, Elsie but completely understand! Can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you and your wonderful, inspiring art! You need to have a contest guessing what you have in store soon!!! 😉 I have my guesses…

    I finally just ordered my underwear postcard set and can’t wait to make “a week in the life” mini book. 🙂

    Three cheers for your new season of life! Your excitement is contagious! And what better season to welcome it in!!!

    xoxo -j a.k.a. Inspired Mess

  • I can’t wait to see your new space … and what you have up your sleeve for your new products. Love what you have done in the past, looking forward to more greatness in the future. Oh, and I’m jealous of your new assistant. If you ever need some Minnesota help, let me know! LOL!

  • Hey Els… Love the new peeks of ur place… must come for another visit… maybe w/baby in tow… 🙂

    I posted snippets of our new place too…

    excited for a new season for you deary… fall brings out the best in stuff i believe… i love fall so much… xo

  • Oh Elsie,

    It is bitter-sweet (no more Love,Elsie),but;I am happy for the new direction for you. Will you still be designing scrapbook papers and embellishments? Your products are so unique; I hope you design and market scrapbook supplies somewhere.

  • I am a proud owner of Love Elsie product, and I will miss it BUT I am so happy for your new season of ideas and projects. Congratulations and I am excited to see pictures of your new space. I love your decorating style. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Thanks for this post. My family and I are in a transition period in our lives as well, and it’s encouraging and inspiring to hear about your doors closing and your doors opening. Heres to chasing all the new dreams your heart is calling you to!

  • Elsie, i am really REALLY SAD to hear that there will no longer be any Love, Elsie products! I have a whole folder in my online gallery and albums in my scrapbooking space specially dedicated to your designs, and i don’t think anything can fill that void now! But i sincerely wish the best for you, and i’ll be looking forward to more great stuff in your Etsy store, and more great news about your new work. Lots and lots of love!

  • Good luck with whatever you do, remember to keep yourself first and foremost. You are doing a great job. I can’t wait to see what you have planned.

  • i never want fall to end.

    but everything in moderation, i reckon.

    sad and glad about you stopping love, elsie.

    i think it’s right for you.

    i’m really excited to see what you’re coming up with now!

    it gives me the happy butterflies to think that you’re embarking on something new at the same time as me. 😀

    love, kimkimxxoo!!

  • So So sad to say goodbye to Love, Elsie. But I am so excited to see what you come up with next. You are so talented and creative. I am continually inspired by you. Thanks and good luck!

  • I loved your book – so fresh and fun. Enjoyed the Love Elsie line and so, can’t wait to see what this new chapter in your life brings.

    Much luck to you!

  • Hi Elsie,

    I am so glad you are following your artist’s heart! I know it means saying no to some things, but saying yes to others can be SO exciting!

    Good luck and continued success in ALL you put your hands to!

    You’re an amazing and brave soul!

  • i love the way you write about seasons and change and opportunities and dreams – your approach to life is refreshing and admirable. and while I’ll miss love, elsie, I’m of course dying to see what you do next! you’re awesome (and your new pad looks RAD so far…!)

  • Your house is looking soooo cute!! 🙂 I can’t wait to see the rest. 🙂

    I love you, and I’m so excited to see you being able to do whatever you want creatively! 🙂

    Charin

  • Elsie… you are an incredibly talented woman & I am so happy that I am a Love, Elsie collector! I didn’t ever miss a line! ;o) I am sooo looking forward to your new work and ideas. You are VERY inspiring to me.. in all that you do. photos, scrappin, crafting, and how you are such a great friend to your friends. I look up to you and Rachel! I will look to both of you when I need inspiration and creativity. Good Job, Good Luck! Can’t wait to see what your next chapter has in store! ;o)

    xo!

  • Selfishly, I’m spewing about Love Elsie’s demise too. However ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

    I’m hoping that maybe in the (not to distant) future there will maybe be an independant Elsie Scrapbooking line. I hope so.

    I’m now going off to my favourite scrapbooking shop to buy up big on LE!!

  • so will the love, elsie products not be available anymore? do i need to run to the scrapbook store and buy them all ’cause i won’t ever be able to buy them again?

  • I’m sorry to hear that you are leaving KI, but I would guess that no matter what you choose to do next artistically, it will work out well for you. You have so much creativity bursting at the seams that your next venture in the world of art is going to be out of this world. I am so confident of that! Good luck to you and I can’t wait to hear more about what you will be doing next! Hugs and best of luck to you always!!!

    so i need to tell you that i appreciate you and everything you do.

    thank you elsie.

    good luck with all you do in your future, it is looking very bright.

  • Love the new pictures of the new loft/studio Elsie. Cant wait to see the rest.

  • Now I’ll have to stock up on your stuff!

    Sad to see it go, but thrilled for you. Can’t wait to see all the new creations that come from your heart and mind!

  • Ooooohhhhh NOOOOOO!!!! Love, Elsie is my FAVOURITE, I have all of the ranges, everyone who knows me knows I LOVE Love, Elsie. What will I do now?

    I’m seriously seriously quite sad :o(

  • I guess it doesn’t seem so “stalkerish” to tell you this since it is being discontinued…I have almost every single thing that’s Love, Elsie related. I even use the packaging. (It’s true!) Love it all!…but knowing you, you’ll have something even better! =) Congrats & lovely work on the new place!

  • ooooohhhhh nooooo! What am i going to do now without Love, Elsie?? I feel terrible for saying it but I’m seriously seriously quite upset by this news

    :*(

  • You have inspired us with your amazing work, and your passion for art. Life is full of changes, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!

  • Aww Elsie-as much as my heart truly hurts for the Love Elsie line (which I have EVERY SINGLE piece of) not longer being created, I am very eager to see what you have in store for the near future. What ever it is (and I can’t wait to hear about it and see it) I wish you nothing but the very best and with tons of success. To be, you are truly a unique and special person. I have grown in so many ways because of your free spirit amazing style. I hope that this set of opportunities is just what you dream them to be and even more.

    On another note-I can’t wait to see your loft complete. Oh, and that fall print, SUPER cute. Love the apples, love the idea of fall. Here’s to many more dreams coming true and life full of blessed moments….

Whilst this is an end to a beautiful partnership (time for me to quickly snap up whatever remaining papers I haven’t got, and to buy repeats of my fave papers), I’m excited about your dreams and new ventures. Waiting in anticipation…Kim

  • So, every year I pick a product line and do my whole family album using it (so many choices, I’d never get anything done if I didn’t focus…) Guess what product line I’m using this year? 🙂 Yep! I have this year caught up thru June….so sad not to have Elsie Halloween…but I’ll figure it out~ 🙂 Basically, 2008 is ALL ABOUT Love, Elsie—and it’s looking good! Thank you for creating the coolest stuff! Keep dreaming~ I can’t wait to see what you do next!!

I love your ideas and everything you do and come up with.. you are a truly inspiring person. Good Luck with your new loft and projects! I can’t wait to see the photos.

  • wow elsie! so many new and exciting things are happening for you..enjoy them all! every single second! best wishes for whatever is next for you. I can’t wait! I have always loved your style. I am not much of a scrapbooker and so I truly appreciated the love elsie line. so simple! take care and have fun setting up your new nest. ciao!

  • Elsie, I am all my heart with you. I’ll miss the Love Elsie scrapbooking lines, but you took a choice which is the best for you. I’d like to be as brave as you, but I’m still a PA afraid to change her life.

    Love you!

    Ula

  • I totally adore your work and inspiration to everyone including me. It is always a hard thing to close a specific chapter in your life but it is vital part to growth. I know that you will continue to blossom in whatever venture that comes your way.

    Be blessed Elsie!

  • love the colours in your lift. I think it is great you are following your dreams. I am looking forward to hearing what is coming up next! I got my etsy goodies the other day thank you for being so quick. I am looking forward to making something…

  • Awww, no more Love, Elsie? That’s very sad. They were some of my favourite products ever! Can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store next though…it sounds all very exciting for you.

  • I am really sad about your decision about Love, Elsie, because it really was my favorite line. But you will make new things and I am looking forward to them! Greetz from Oslo!

  • I love your “new place”. Don’t you love Dad’s, they’re the best handy men around, they know how to do it all.

    While I will miss Love Elsie I understand your position that you want to grow and move forward creatively. I’m excited to see what you come up with next. From what I’ve seen this summer in your Etsy shop and purchased I might add, I know it will be just wonderful. You are such a creative person so please know that you can do anything you set your mind to. 😀

    So happy you have an assitant, now you can creative more for us to buy.

  • Wow that is such a great colour behind your desk, I’m seeing it everywhere at the mo but dont have a spare wall to use it myself gar. I also love that piccie of the paints in their box, there’s something so pleasing about such colourful order. You have great style, all the best.

  • Like everyone else I am sad to hear that there will be no more love Elsie products. BUT I am also excited to hear about your new projects! I’m sure it will be all amazing.

    I am going to order a ton of love Elsie stuff now because I can’t see myself scrapbook at the moment without your amazing designs 🙂 love Elsie is just so me! I love it all! The Zoe line came along at a time when I started to create art again and feel really excited about everything art… Sorry about being a bit incoherent, what I mean to say is that even if it is “just” papers and scrapbooking supplies it really inspired me and affected me in such a positive way.. Like when you hear some music or see a film, it can really mean something to you. Your artwork is so very inspiring to me!

    Good luck with your new projects!

  • Congrats on the new loft–can’t wait to see it! I am inspired by your constantly moving forward spirit 🙂 I wish you good things in your future with your creative journey and new products.

    lots of love-cat

  • So glad that you are moving into new opportunities but sad that love Elsie line is gone, one of my favs out there. Thanks for sharing your talents with us

  • I came here via Creature Comforts and her feature of your work and I have been enjoying the past 20 minutes so much, I had to stop and wish you good luck on all your projects and great things come from leaps of faith. I took one this year too and everyday feels like a busy daunting crazy Christmas day…but Christmas nonetheless. Looking forward to reading more from your adventures!

  • something new up your sleeve?

    going independent? purhaps your “own” line without attatchments to a company? i hope so! some of your etsy things on scrapping paper would be awesome! maybe that’s what you’re doing with the cards and stationary items? testing? great idea!!! would love the mermaids and pirate stuff for scrapping. if not, think about it. :o)

    Smiles,

    Jen

  • Well we will miss your beautiful Love, Elsie line, but I’m sure you have bigger and better things up your sleeve. Follow your heart, girl 🙂

  • So sad to know that Love, Elsie will be discontinued. Definately going to miss them! Wishing you all the best in your new endeavors!

  • I must say I’m itsy bitsy envious of your new studio. And all the comments you get on your blog. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear about your new projects. Change is always good. If you do something for too long, it doesn’t keep your creative juices flowing. I’m very excited for you.

  • sorry to hear the news about ki – i love all of your lines – was sad you weren’t at cha.

    on a selfish note, what color paint is that in your studio area! oh my it’s just what i’m interested in for mine!

  • I’m sure this decision was very hard for you. The good park is that no matter what venue your creating in, you’ll be inspiring thousands of us daily.

    Thanks for everything thus far, i can’t wait to hear what’s to come. 🙂

  • i’m glad the move went ok, can’t wait to see it finished. i’ll be VERY sad not see any more Love,Elsie products but excited to see what you do in the future!

  • Loved your “Love, Elsie” stuff but I am super excited, too, to see where your creativity takes you next. Best of luck in your new ventures!

  • seriously, you are the most cute artist i blogstalk. 🙂

    wait.. did that sounds weird?

    ha! make today great elsie!

    and enjoy your new digs!

  • if you left ki does that mean you will start your “own” stuff?

    is that why you have had so much stationery? and journals? i think your mermaids and pirate stuff would look awesome on scrapping paper and soft stickers.

    can’t wait to know what’s up your sleeve.

    congrats!

  • Oh noooooo, no more Love Elsie. I’m so so sad :((((. I was dreaming you’d do an Halloween and “By the seaside” Love Elsie Lines. Oh well, it will have to stay a dream.

    Best of luck in your new adventures x

  • OMG!!! I have to say I am totally saddend to hear there will be no more Love, Elsie products. They were always my fave and I will really miss buying them and creating with them. They were a huge insipration. On the other hand….I am very excited to see what you come up with next. All the best in your future.

    Brittany.

  • Oh gosh I am gutted 🙁 What am I going to do without Love, Elsie. I too hope you bring out your own scrapbooking line that will be easily available in Australia 🙁 🙁 🙁

    I hope you achieve ALL your dreams no matter how long that do to list is 😀 you can do it!!! Ally xox

  • Oh hun hope you will have many wonderful memories for year to come in your new pad, looking forward to seeing your pics!! sad news about KI but no doubt what you will be venturing onto next will be amazing for you, good luck with it all & can’t wait to hear & see the next chapter in your life 🙂

    P.S I’ve asked Hubs for an ELSIE PINK ORIGINAL for my birthday so I’ll be keeping my eye on your shoppe :O)

  • Thats huge news, but your new projects etc will be sooooooooo exciting. Can’t wait to see what you do. looking forward to see the amazing things you do with your new home.

  • I will admit that I will miss the “Love Elsie” range. I loved its fun colourful way. However, I do believe that sometimes you have to leave one place in order for new things to take shape. If what you want really comes from the heart how can it be wrong. I congratulate you on everything that you bring to this fabulous thing we call scrapbooking. I also thankyou. Can’t wait to hear and see all the new things you have to share with us.

    I just received my original print “I love coffee” and its even better in real life. I proudly hangs on my wall. Love it, love it, love it.

    Tracey 🙂

  • We have daily been waiting for a new post & never did we dream the post would read what it did. We we were so crushed & devestated to hear the news. Vera’s store has Love,Elsie items all over and we can’t wait for our Love,Elsie packages to come in. She has a scrapbooking store. We are however happy for your new place and new endevors. You are one of the most talented & creative people and we admire all you do. Good luck, we love you!!

  • Hi Elsie!

    Zoe was like my best friend. Seriously. 🙂 I know amazing things are coming, and you are loved and supported in those amazing things. I have hoarded Zoe, so she and I can hang tight for a while!

  • sad to know that love elsie is no longer available but excited to hear abt what lies ahead for you.

    All the best!! keep on creating!

  • oh, i am so sad you won’t be designing for KI anymore. I loved your products. I am very HOPEFUL though that you will continue to design for us scrapbookers in some sort of way. I just loved your stuff.

    good luck in your new ventures.

    i can not wait to see more pics of your LOFT. looks so fun!

    best wish to you and your new “season”.

  • I am sad to hear that you will no longer be making the Love, Elsie line, but I am SO excited to hear what is next! And very happy for you to be starting a new venture 🙂 Can’t wait to hear all about it!

    Your loft looks great!

  • Please really tell us “Love, Elsie” fans that you are still going to create another scrapbooking line by yourself. 🙂

    We are such fans of Elsie products that we might just die away if there’s no more Elsie products in this world.

  • Scrapbooking will not be the same without Love, Elsie product! 🙁 So sad to hear that, but I can only imagine what you will do next! You are super inspiring, so please keep sharing!

    By the way, where did you get the table in your studio? I *love* it!

  • You are an inspiration. A co-worker introduced me to your site about 2 months ago. Since then I have been submitting layouts to scrapbook magazines. My next challenge is to start hand journaling, like you do, instead of using fonts.

    This is kind of random but I was searching for a (cotton) anniversary gift for my husband and came across this cupcake apron. Not at all appropriate for him but I thought you’d like it:

    I wish you much happiness in your new home.

  • I wish you great success in your new projects though I’m sad for me because I loved your Love,Elsie line. The new place looks great so far!

  • How exciting for you

    so many changes

    i have to say though that I hope your new endeavor isn’t taking you away from the scrapping arena … we would miss you too much 🙂

  • Is that a Holga cam on one of your shelves? When are we going to se some great photos taken with that. Looove Holga 🙂

    Good luck on your new project! Hope it is book about photography….

  • No more Love, Elsie? I’m heartbroken.

    I look forward to hearing what projects are on the horizon and can only wish the best for you.

  • good for you elsie! the ability to change with the seasons and recognize when things have had their moment in the sun and others are coming into their spotlight is an amazing ability. keep creating and appreciating the journey. you inspire.

  • It is so recent that I have found you that I feel sad for having not gotten my hands on the Love, Elsie products and yet I feel excited for the fun and wonderful things I am sure you are about to do. I love reading your blog and appreciate you sharing your life with us here in blogland. The colors of your loft are so vibrant and alove they make me hate my white walls. I love the colors you choose and the pic of your dad painting is a true treasure. I wish you all the best in all the things you strive to do. Please keep on sharing, you make me feel young again.

  • Ahhhhhhh. I am bummed! Guess I will go off to my studio and create something with my final Love, Elsie! Can’t wait to see what you have in your future!

  • So bummed that there will no longer be a Love, Elsie line. I seriously have all of your products and LOVE THEM!!!(Have both books and love them too!) I love your style and it inspires me to get creative-which I’ve never been. What am I going to do now? However, I am very excited to see what you are up to now. I keep up with your blog and feel like I know you. You have such a great spirit and I truly wish you all the best.

    P.S. I love your photography!Whats your secret? I want to be able to take great pics of my son.
