Pixie Stick

How did you pick your store(s) name(s)?
(feel free to write up each shop name if they each have a story) *
The name of my store is The Shy Muse. I picked the name because I'm a bit of an introvert...though considered more reserved than shy. According to the Carl Jung Personality Test I'm a INFJ.
INFJ's are the most rare of all the personalities and are known for being intuitive, creative...and yes, introverted. Creatively, I'm very inspired from so many things around me that I find myself writing down or sketching ideas everyday. I have a special sketch book dedicated to just these inspirational ideas. It can be as simple as a blade of grass to the colors of an exotic fish. I suppose the world is my muse.

This design has a more sentimental connection because the image was my first vector design. I was so proud of how it came out - and even better, it received a Today's Best Award. I love the classic look combined with a touch of trend.

I love this mousepad, just because I have always loved feathers and absolutely love the colors in this image. So rich and vivid. I don't know why , but it reminds me of something Ralph Lauren would have in his home. I just ordered it last week for myself. It also comes in greeting cards and stickers.

This is a Photoshop illustration. It also received a Today's Best Award in the poster. I was thrilled, because there was a lot of work in this piece and something I had not tried before. It's called Philosophy of the Mind. The illustration also comes on notecards, t-shirts, mugs and posters. My 19 old son ask for the mousepad. He said it was so "sick". I guess that is a good thing.

I love this one because there is something unique and mysterious about it. It's an inspired illustration of the Tiger Moth. I think it makes a really cool t-shirt. I ordered a set of the mugs with the linen background. They came out great!

I love anything that sparkles...and I love how this image of sequins shines. It almost looks like the real thing. I photographed it with many different lighting environments and times of day to get the perfect look. I was very happy with the final result. The invitation makes for a great New Years Eve Party invite as well as a disco theme invite. It also comes in stickers and greeting cards.
