My Little Buffalo: a featured shop, review + GIVEAWAY! {CLOSED}


Lisa from My Little Buffalo is so very talented. I mean, take a look around, she designed my blog header + buttons! I’m sure you’ve seen her work around on other blogs, or perhaps you read hers as well.

{Doesn’t she just look like tons of fun?!}



Where are you located + are you from there originally? I currently live in the ever so hipster city of Portland, OR …before that I was in the Great Lake State, of Michigan.  It snows a lot there.


How did you come up with your shop name? When I was first married, my husband didn’t understand girl things. You know, taking long showers, changing my clothes 3 times… So i would affectionately say that he was just being a “buffalo” (I tend to make words fit for things they don’t) after a while the name just stuck and he became my little buffalo.  Once I started a show, I named it after him.





How long have you had your shop? I guess a little over two and half years.  Weird to realize that..


What inspires you? I like to look at things that inspire me, and anything can really. I might look at the grating of a cheese grater and think, wow that would make a fantastic textile….and then draw that. I love experimenting with other colors, and i really love it when people request something themselves. I love it when people have ideas. 


What is your favorite item in your shop? I would have to say these. They were a joint project with my dad in law.





Do you have any other jobs or hobbies? I’m assist the arts department at my church and manage the office as well.  That’s currently my 9-5.

Share an interesting fact about yourself. I have never smoke a cigarette in my life, and I don’t plan on it, I don’t want the black lung.


What do you hope your future holds? I hope it holds happiness… and my husband, my cat, and a few rugrats hopefully.  There’s nothing more that I would need I suppose.

Shandell’s Review

I first encountered Lisa + her pretty little shop when I entered a giveaway over at The Outdoor Wife last spring. I actually won and Lisa sent me this lovely print!

 It’s not up in our house yet {but that’s only because there is still absolutely no decor up yet…} but I just love it and can’t wait to find a special place for it soon. The paper it’s on is just so pretty, nice thick + textured linen cardstock. The quality is beautiful + professional. 

She also sent me a couple extra goodies. These cards also printed on linen cardstock and I almost don’t want to send them! I had actually planned on using the heart + keys one for a wedding last month, but it got left behind…darn πŸ˜‰
