New squares

Well, hello there! I've been gone for a while, haven't I? This cold that I have has left me feeling pretty bad - I've had a headache off and on since last Wednesday. My head feels okay so far today, so that's a good sign!

I participated in a home show this past weekend {thanks, Wendy!}. My last few shows were good ones - so good that I sold all my original squares. Since I had to make new ones anyway, I decided to try something different. The new squares are pretty different than the old ones - brighter colors, my illustrations as opposed to my patterns, and not so "matchy" as the other ones. I'll still make the originals, but will also try these out at upcoming shows. Here are a few samples:





Each of the squares come in the four colors. So if you really like the orange color, you can have all four in that color:

They look great on the wall together. Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of my setup on Saturday. Malayna's favorite is the "grow" square with the birch trees. She likes it so much that I made one for her to keep in her room {in blue, her favorite color}. We were drawing together the day I came up with those trees, so I'm sure that's part of the reason why she likes them. I was surprised at how good that made me feel - my daughter loves my artwork so much that she wants to own a piece of it. She's my little fan!
