February Brings New Cards!

Yay! There are some ultra fun new cards in my collection, that some of youmay have seen at the Flock & Gather sale on February 12th! If not, here they are you lucky ducks! I'm pretty sure I had an almost illegal amount of fun making these! And you'll notice a couple of party hat sparrows in the mix for all occasion celebratory giving!!!!

Happy trails kids!


Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum.....

The other day, I stumbled across the photos Stefan took for this awesome cake I made over the holidays and they were too fun not too share! The recipe for this Vanilla Snowflake Cake came in a sweet Kraft magazine that surprises us every once in a while by arriving in our mail! Its super easy and was a huge hit when we brought it to a dinner party! The white chocolate snowflakes were a bit fiddley but a fun challenge :P

With marshmallows and hot chocolate it was soooo good for an indulgent, wintery day!

Oh Valentines!!!
Here's a little calligraphy practice and one
of the Valentine Card designs from the Feb. 12th sale
with Flock and Gather! This design also comes in a button,
which, to my joy! Stefan wears with pride!

Happy love month everyone!

The Traveling Sketchbook: 2

Wellety, wellety...

A few weeks ago I kissed my book goodbye and sent it off to see the world!
Since there are lots of people who won't be able to see in on tour, I thought I'd share some "wee moments" from the sketchbook I submitted
to Art House Co-op's sketchbook project! For the project I took apart the book and made it into a concertina format so it opens up into one giant long image. I really like those for some reason :P I filled it up with lots of sketches, and it became a bit of a stream of consciousness for all my thoughts on home and what it means :P The back side is a suuuuper neon green with bits of text that kept popping up in my mind :P
It was a barrel of monkey's fun and I got to try lots of new techniques and transfers that I don't normally use for sketchbooks!

Now, the scans came out a bit green, but no worries!
The full book will be digitized and online
through the sketchbook project site in the next few weeks! In the meantime, the tour has officially kicked off this past week in Brooklyn! Check out the dates and locations
to see if its swinging by a city near you and if so - go take a peak! If anyone gets a photo with my book, I'd love to see it!!!
