I created this design 3 years ago and no one wanted to buy it because they were so upset with the 2016 election. Now it's 2019. Trump is still president. The political and economic climate remains uncertain and perhaps even more scary at times. But there is always hope and, you know what I'm gonna say... America is beautiful (that includes you Alaska and Hawai'i- my b, I promise to add you in soon). Colorful and diverse and beautiful. I love my country and feel the powerful positive energies emerging from the ashes. Let’s be the change we wish to see in the world. #makelifefun #bethechange #americathebeautiful #createyourselftolife #americathecolorful #america #greetingcards #stationery #gca #cards #snailmail #happymail #writemoreletters #letter #illustration #watercolor #illustrator #bbanksart #brittneybanks #happy #art #cards at United States

. ずっとずっとこの風景。 いい大人が涙が出るほど辛かった.. . 家事は殆ど出来ない主人が せっせと 身の回りの事してくれて お粥も 作ってくれて嬉しかった.. . 兎に角、健康第一❕❕ . やはり 日々の生活、食事、より一層気をつけなきゃだめだな。 と、反省。 . . . #マンション暮らし #ベッドルーム #シンプルインテリア #brittneybanks #los #losangeles

AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL. 🇺🇸 I want to make sure you understand what I mean here (didn't get very many likes 3 posts ago). Please don't get me wrong, I see there are ugly things going on in Washington. I see how Trump tries tirelessly to divide us for his own benefit. I get my news everyday and boy do we repeat the bad stuff over and over again. For good reason, but if I can be that tiny bit of positivity for you, I’ve done my job. My glass is half full. I have hope. That's just my choice. Some people may think l have my head in the clouds with these colorful, child-like doodles, but I can assure you I’m informed and stand up for what's important to me. America IS beautiful. We have high mountains and long rivers and roads. 🦅 Bald eagles, coyotes and crocodiles. 🎷 We invented jazz, honkytonking and BBQ. 🍖 Oprah, Robin Williams, Brené Brown, Will Smith, Ellen Degeneres, the notorious RBG... need I say more? 😉 With our 50 states we EXPRESS ourselves in SO MANY ways AND I LOVE IT and I am going to celebrate it here. 🌈 #makelifefun #happytuesday #diversityiscool #celebratethemeltingpot #weareallthesame #loveoneanother #bekind #smile #create #express #beyou #americathebeautiful #greetingcards #stationery #gca #cards #snailmail #happymail #writemoreletters #letter #illustration #watercolor #illustrator #bbanksart #brittneybanks #happy #art #cards at United States

I normally mail out around 200 holiday cards this time of year. 🎄 I LOVE writing letters and think the holidays are a great time to be in touch with friends and family far away and a great way to keep them close. This year I didn’t quite manage all 200 (closer to 10 to be exact). The holidays make us want to do it all and more and it’s just not humanly possible sometimes (unless we lose sleep and get sick over it). I’d like to thank Kalin over at @sweetwaterfloral who ran a little ‘just say no’ campaign a while back. I happened to stumble upon her stories in the midst of a long to do list a day before traveling. It felt SO good to just let a few things go so I could actually enjoy my dear family and give my mind, body and soul a much-needed break. I relaxed, as the people I love know that I love them. Cards will come eventually, just not by Jan 5, 2019. Be kind to yourselves and remember to #makelifefun people (if it’s not too late 😉). ✌🏻 P.S. Yes I always write to candlelight. #nerdalert #hygge #greetingcards #stationery #gca #cards #snailmail #happymail #writemoreletters #letter #illustration #watercolor #illustrator #bbanksart #brittneybanks #happy #art #cards #nss2019 Photo by @stephanie.n.baker ❤️

Leaving Hawaii today against my will. Had the best time snorkeling with my sister and spotted eagle rays, embarrassing myself trying to surf and sing karaoke, picking Kona coffee beans and eating #lilikoi... Definitely lots of fodder collected for a line of HI cards. Mahalo. 🤙🏻 #makelifealoha #greetingcards #stationery #gca #cards #snailmail #happymail #writemoreletters #letter #illustration #watercolor #illustrator #bbanksart #brittneybanks #happy #art #cards #nss2019

In Hawaiian culture, the plumeria symbolizes positivity and is used in leis or to celebrate special occasions. When worn in the hair, the plumeria flower symbolizes the relationship status of the wearer. A flower over the right ear means she is available while one over the left means she is taken. 🌺 #funfactbecauseiminhawaii #hawaii #plumeria #leiflower #frangipani #tropical #illustration #watercolor #illustrator #bbanksart #brittneybanks #happy #art #makelifefun at Hawaii

A rare sighting of the elusive Mr Hayley Andoff, Ben. He looks very serious, but that's mostly because his car was stopped out front with his flashers on.Thank you to @hairbybanks for the fantastic haircut - 16+ inches to @wigs.for.kids! at Toronto, Ontario

Custom cards are so much fun! Here is part of a design I made for a wedding party invitation this past Summer. They had a food truck, margaritas and a keg! One of those projects where I wished I was invited... #makelifefun

Hello from Northern Michigan (and apologies to those following my neverending Lake Michigan insta stories) where the air is fresh🌿, the water is clear 💦 and the flowers are in full bloom.🌻 I’m a lucky girl to call Michigan home and it’s been so nice to visit this Summer. I love it here so much that I’ve created gift wrap, cards and wallpaper custom for the area. All will be available again on the US website soon (or email me if you want sooner) and London will be getting their very own custom paper goods too (launching at @topdrawerlondon in 1 month). Stay tuned! 🎁 #makelifefun at Harbor Springs, Michigan
