Hi there my loves, it has been a while. I keep trying to make this blog one of the top priorities, but I have been drawing so much that it has taken up most of my time! However, “why not combine them” I thought to myself earlier today! So here are some free wallpapers for your phones! Make sure to TAG US on instagram @thecrybabyclub_ so I can see them in action!
These are two of my latest designs and also two of my (maybe all time) favorites!
Which one is your favorite? Tell us below in the comments!
It is time for the hearts and the love and the pinks and reds and the mushiest, gushiest holiday of them all…Valentine’s Day! While some folks love this holiday (I personally love it, but only because the stores are stocked with SO. MANY. PINK. THINGS!) I know that this holiday can bring up some not so great feelings for a lot of people.
I started this mail exchange 3 years ago based on that exact sentiment. I don’t want anyone to feel sad or alone on Valentine’s Day, so whether you are single, taken, recently dumped, grieving, lonely or whatever…I want to be your Valentine, I would like to send you a Valentine.
Also, I have done this several ways in the past. I have had help in sending these out several times, but some people did not get Valentine’s and that was sad so this year I have decided to send out all of the Valentines on my own, so spoiler alert…I am your Valentine!
That being said, I have charged for this little service in the past, I don’t want to do that this year, HOWEVER, if you would like to donate a few dollars (if you are able to) you can Paypal me and it will be VERY much appreciated. I am anticipating over 50 folks to sign up for this and those stamps start to add up!
ANYWAY let’s get to the goodies!
Please fill out this short form It will help me get to know you a little better plus it gives me the information I need to send you some Love Day happiness.
Be My Valentine sign ups will be open all week long January 22- January 29. XOXO, Natalie
So I drew this design the other day after a nice night out with my friend Kate.
We were having dinner and that led to ice cream, but throughout the night, I kept giving the Shaka sign. The sign is typically given as a form of “hello” or “goodbye” or “hang loose” in Hawaiian or surf culture, but lately it has been an all encompassing flourish, good or bad.
“I am so excited for this ice cream” ::insert excited, silly double handed shaka::
“Oh, your boyfriend is a selfish jerk?” ::insert eye roll + shaka::
I like that the sign is ambiguous, open for interpretation. That is why the word “vibes” was added. Positive vibes or negative vibes, it is all up to you. 🙂 ::insert shaka here::
Please enjoy these free printables and let me know if you use them anywhere, I wanna see! ❤
I have been wanting to do a Crybaby Bingo card for the longest time and I finally did it!!!
I think that this would be kind of fun to play at a meet up or something like that in the future, just to kind of have a fun way of opening up the floor to talk about some stuff that we’ve cried about, some serious and some not.
For now though, I’m gonna post it here in case any of you wanna play! If you do play, be sure and repost it and tag us @thecrybabyclub or #thecrybabyclub #crybabybingo so I can see!!!
“It’s the hardest thing that I’ve ever done
To love somebody and still run”
— Still Run, 2018
Recently, I decided to try to step into new things, musically anyway. I have this really annoying thing about me that when people suggest things to me (i.e. music, books, website, t.v. shows etc.) I ignore them as hard as possible. I do not do this on purpose, I promise! I am not just a jerk that hates her friends, at least I don’t think I am. I just like the things that I like and am reluctant to change, plus I have been burned too many times (I am looking at you, Thor Ragnarok).
I even have to trick myself into liking new things. For example, everyone kept telling me about The Last Podcast on the Left. “OMG you’ll love it, they’re so funny, smart and great!” I hard passed on this podcast for months before finally, I was caught up on all the podcasts I like and literally needed something new. So, I started listening to LPOTL as I fell asleep or when I was in the bath (so I couldn’t turn it off or change it). Why am I like this? I wish I could tell you. Long story short though, LPOTL is my new favorite podcast, hands down.
Anyway, someone lovingly suggested this band to me before, but it didn’t stick. Shocking, I know. But then…thanks to the horrible desk job I worked for a few months + iTunes “For You” playlist based on what I always listen to… I discovered Wet.
The timing couldn’t have been better either, because their new album dropped soon after, so I had tons of things to listen to and fall in love with. So, if you are not like me, and you actually enjoy people suggesting new things to you, please check this band out. They are worth a listen, their lyrics are great, the music is catchy, and the vocals = swoon city.
Happy back to school everyone! In honor of the kiddos going back to school, brand new supplies, awkward lunches, awful reading assignments, and passing notes to friends, I have rounded up a few of my favorite pins that just S C R E A M “Back to School”
We know life can be hard, and maybe it’s been tough lately, but here at The Crybaby Club, we know that one of the best ways to combat a rainy day is to lift other people out of the puddles!
One of our number one missions here is to do just that… support, lift and love one another. As a woman, I have been told my entire life that other women specifically are my competition. This is such a lie, and we need to make sure that our future generations are not told the same BS. Community over competition, always.
It’s so important for us to recognize and celebrate other women and humans in our lives who are doing the things. Whether it’s through starting a small business, running a 5K or just getting out of bed in the morning- because let’s be honest, some days that is the bravest thing we do. Let’s take a moment to celebrate an important folks in our life.
Let’s lift each other up!
Who inspires you? Who do you admire?

In this series, I want to take time out to showcase artwork, creatives, brands, businesses, musicians and more that inspire the crap out of me. Not only because it is fun, but because it can also be inspiring for those not so creative ruts we tend to fall in from time to time.
Here is what has my heart pounding this month…
Lovingthis kind-heartedcreative’s colorful, gentle, powerful aesthetic. her incredible pieces of art are full of sentiments that we could all use a little more of.
The genius over at Velvet Spectrumhas me simultaneously saying OMG and WTF.
Way to go Luke Choice, your stuff is phenomenal.
From the momentthis girl’sstuff popped up on my feed, I was in love. From the amazing colors to the feminine Zelda flair, seriously, what is not to love?
Who are you creatively crushing on right now?
