Preparing For The Craft Fair

Optimistically I signed up to participate in the Craft Fair held every year at the MathWorks, and it is coming this Thursday. In the past several weeks I have been pushing the limits drawing, cutting and printing in the evenings and over the weekends. I have not posted my progress because that would take precious time away from the drawing, cutting and printing that I could be doing instead (like right now!). So, if you, your family or your friends work at the MathWorks, please stop by the Craft Fair on Thursday! I will try to post a preview of the new cards before then.

Swirly Buffalo Is Back

Buffalo Holiday Card Design

This is the design I made for our personal holiday cards last year. The buffalo was very relevant at the time because we were getting ready to visit Yellowstone National Park for New Years. Looking at the swirly buffalo now makes me think about our trip.

Cards with this buffalo holiday design will be available in my store as soon as more card stock I ordered arrives in the mail.

Vintage Fabrics Lead To Peacocks

peacock inspiring vintage fabricRecently I have come across a vintage fabrics blog and a multitude of vintage fabrics photos. Inspired by the beautiful swirls, flowers and paisley, I decided to try making some cards using the same style.

A peahen and another peacock are coming soon...
