Behind the Curtain

April 1st, 2014

Once in a while someone will ask me what’s behind the big curtain in my studio. Unfortunately there’s nothing as exciting as the Wizard of Oz back there. I just needed storage space for inventory, paper, envelopes, and such, so I put up some shelving and hung curtains in front. It’s nice to be able to pull them closed and make the room seem tidy, while still keeping my stockpile within arm’s reach.

Ok, those are just begging to be made into a gif…

Window Boxes (Spring 2014)

March 27th, 2014

My window boxes are looking glorious right about now! Do you have a good spot to hang one? If so, do it! I planted daffodil bulbs and pansies in the fall and pretty much forgot about them. They survived this especially cold winter, and now they’re blooming all over the place. Next fall I think I’ll double up (or triple up?) on the flower bulbs!

Sketchbook 3.20.14

March 20th, 2014

I’m working on updating some of my older card designs. My style has changed quite a bit since I created my earliest cards, but I love their sentiments too much to discontinue them. Do you ever revisit old projects and redo them when your tastes change?

By the way, next week I’ll have a bunch of new Mother’s Day cards ready for you!

Spring on Ice

March 18th, 2014

The most beautfiul thing happened today! We had a few warm days last week, and spring blooms popped out all around the yard. Today winter is back in full force and everything is coated in ice—including all those confused flowers. If there’s anything more beautiful than flowers, it’s gotta be flowers encased in ice.

Doesn’t this white daffodil look like it’s made of glass?
