Shop Feature: Fanie's Boutique



This week's shop Feature is Fanie's Boutique.  The shop sells greeting cards, artwork, and cartoon art. I love the cartoon art she has on display at her shop it brings me back memories of  how fun cartoons were back in those times. I could really be a kid back then! My favorite item is the Dragon greeting card is has there. I love how it matches the banner of her shop too, way too cute!  I don't think I could even give that dragon card away. It be just a card I collect unless she were to  give a whole box of dragon's cards!  ;)

Well here are some more details about Fanie and her work! there's also a funny video she included for laughs.  Enjoy today's post everyone!


1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?
For the moment, my shop's name is Fanie's Boutique, because it's my name! :-)
Fanie is also a very young and cute name in french. So it fit with my drawing style!

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
I really enjoy creating cute cartoons and funny drawings. There are always little "stories" happening in my drawing. I never draw something just for it to be funny, there are always stories happening.
I love to make useful and whimsical items with my drawings. Like greeting cards, posters and .PDF files.
I also love to draw comics, so I'll be making more comics, this year. :-)

3. What is your favorite item at the store and why?
Right now, I really love the sticker set I got printed with my drawings!

4. What inspires create your products?

I think of my little customers, childrens, very often. I try to remember how it was when I was young and what were the things I liked the most to play and/or draw. I'm a children at hearth so it's not very hard for me to put myself in their shoes.

8. What is your Favorite Food?
Do I have to pick just one? :-p I'm crazy about basil (having italian roots in my family!) and... mangos? :-) They're in season, right now, they're delicious!

9. Describe us one positive event in your life in your life that you felt was a miracle to you or that you knew the Universe was there watching over you.
In general, I find that I am a very lucky person. I'm often at the right spot at the right moment. The Universe have been very nice to me, so far.
But, if I had to pick one, I'd say that the day I got to get tickets for the Lord of the Rings premiere in Los Angeles was a pretty good day for me! (I'm a huge LOTR fan!)

10. What is your favorite Vacation spot and why?
During one summer, I went to Gasp├ęsie and it is lovely up there! You should really go if you don't know this area of Quebec. :-)

  1. Fanie's Boutique style is up my alley because it is whimsical and tells a story. She does really cute drawings and is talented. Not sure about the MoJo music ha ha. But it does remind me of music from the eighties when i was a teen.
