These are part of our Save the Dates...which I still haven't finished but seriously just need one more weekend. I just need to actually do it!

This is a shot of all the owls before I paired them with their background paper. You can see that I still have their feet to cut out. Cutging out their feet probably took twice as long as the rest of the owl in entirety.

Welcome Home Sign

It's hard to read in this picture, but this was the sign I had hanging in my cousin's apt for when she and her (new) husband got home from their honeymoon.

This was another really simple project. All you need is paper, yarn (or string whatever), scissors, tape and a pen.

Welcome Home Boxes

My fiance and I recently house sat for my cousin while she was on her honeymoon. When she left her apartment, she had all these vases filled with flowers from the wedding. By the time she got back they would have all been really quite dead so we cleaned them. It seemed sad to just have these empty vases welcoming them home, so I filled the largest one with little welcome home messages. I used the left over paper from the banner I made. It wasn't fancy, but it was fun, and most importantly she loved it.

I should try and remember to do things like this more often. Random acts of crafts...or something like that. :)

Work mast

I made this mast for the this week's newsletter. (I do a weekly newsletter for work.) I'm not sure we're going to get to use it due to some last minute changes so here it is! (Click to see the larger version :)

Peacock Feathers

I'm just playing around with a few if the tiger's eye ColorBox ink pads and fun pens from PaperSource. This could be neat on basic brown paper as a pattern for wrapping paper. Also maybe one as a card.

Cartoon Art Museum

I'm currently in SanFran and visited the Cartoon Art Museum. I have to admit, besides seeing Sargent's and members of the Bay Area Figurative's work, this has been my favorite douse of art. It also is a great example of the merits of line. So on the left is my CAM-inspired drawing. There will hopefully be more.

Save the Dates

These are our ultra home made Save the Dates. I was up until almost 2 working on them. Tonight will be another late night but we'll have basically all the inside-envelope work finished. Woohoo!
