Another Holiday Card Finished

I just finished another holiday card which is available for sale at my etsy shop.

I am really enjoying the look of ink on chipboard, and in this case, especially loving the retro look.

In the Press: My Work At Cupcake Project Blog

Stef over at Cupcake Project wrote a lovely mention in her ab fab cupcake blog! I am so glad she enjoyed the cards I sent to one of my favorite cupcake making divas!

Last spring, Tina and I teamed up with Cupcake Project through our blog, Scoopalicious, to do an Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup! It has been great getting to know Stef through the blogging world. Her cupcake recipes are amazing, and I was first drawn in by her Shirley Temple Cupcakes.

Please visit my Etsy site to purchase these birthday cards!

I actually have done a bunch of cupcake watercolors I will have to post soon.

Mail Art Received

It's rare that I get to see how mail art I sent arrived and I rarely ask...but Pam so graciously sent me a photo of the mail art I sent to her in Ohio, and it's cool to be able to share it back to you all. Pam is a friend from high school and we are both obsessed with Scrabble. It's good to be back in touch with her again!

A Drawing A Day, 10.17.08

Here's another drawing a day -- of course the last one was in the beginning of September! 5x5 inches, watercolor on Claybord. I don't know how long it took me.

Busy as a Bee

I have been in the studio a lot lately, printing cards. I came to remeber that being a card designer was something I always wanted to do, and I am finally doing it. As soon as I get envelopes, these will be for sale, and the final three designs (yep, -- I decided to print them all and I also have one more that was supposed to be a custom order but got nixed so it will also be available) will probably be available sometime in the next couple of weeks for sale as well. In the mean time, congrats to Shioka who won the drawing for the free cards.

44% voted for the bulbs
29% voted for the deer
27% voted for the ornaments

Funny thing is, the only one I have to show right now is the ornaments. I keep putting off the bulbs because of all the colors involved -- ugh! Quite a bear to print.

I also worked on some birthday cards -- cupcakes with a subtle "happy birthday." My original idea was to do them on chipboard in the pink, as most of them are, but I played around with the chocolate frosting as well as printing them on white. These were super fun and leave a lot of room for options. The cards are flat and measure 3 1/2" x 4 7/8".

Colors may vary slightly due to the differences in monitors.

A Bit Political: Obama and Ice Cream

So I was just playing around the other day, and I got a little political -- and added politics to something I cream! I guess it is kind of creepy, but also fun!

If you too like Obama and Ice Cream, you can get an Obama Ice Cream item here.
