MERRY CHRISTMAS! Here are some pics of the xmas morning sunrise out our window. Have a great day everyone!
Hi all. I'll be taking a little Christmas break from the blog for a few days. The family's all here and we're having fun. I may still do some sporadic posting here and there. I wanted to wish everyone Happy Holidays! See you again soon!

I was over on the freshly{blended} blog yesterday and saw the wonderful work of Yulia Brodskaya. Yulia is a graphic designer and illustrator who loves experimenting with typography. Her paper typography like the ones in these pics are just incredible. See more of Yulia's work on her website here.





These pillows go with my "reused items" theme from yesterday. They are made out of old feed bags by Rebecca Tegtmeyer of SOWN. I love their subtle worn colors. See many more on the SOWN Etsy site.





I absolutely love the idea of making something beautiful out of found materials or trash. Artist, Dolan Geiman does such a wonderful job of it with his collage and mixed media pieces. That horse with all the different papers/locks/keys is gorgeous! See much more on his blog, website and etsy store.





You gotta love wide eyed girl paintings. These illustrations are by artist Ana Bagayan. Ana definitely is a master of combining the cute with the morbid. I posted some pretty tame pieces in this post but you can see lots more on her website, blog and flickr. She also sells work in her etsy store here.

I love these pieces by Nesting Emily. The top four pieces are from her "Hold" series. I love the doilies and soft materials with the pottery. See lots more of these lovelies in the Nesting Emily Etsy store and flickr site.

I'm featuring some items in the Indie Fixx Galleria this holiday season and they featured my little pink Alphabet Bear on their blog yesterday. They also showed several pics from my studio. So if you'd like to take a peak into my workspace, you can see pics here. Lastly, I wanted to share a new little product that I'm playing around with. If you've purchased a Kitty from me, you know that I draw a little kitty image on my packaging. Well, I had a stack of sketchbooks laying around so I thought I'd make these little Kitty Sketchbooks based on those drawings. So here are the first two, gold kitty and blue kitty. They are hand-embroidered and then permanently glued onto the sketchbook. I'm excited about them and can't wait to make more.
