I love this new image I finished yesterday and can't wait to use it on clocks! Maybe it can go on some art blocks, too… What do you think? What else would you like to see this on?


Sneak peek of new images!

Every once in a while I create new images to use on my clocks, art blocks, notecards and pendants. It usually happens around the start of the school year, since that's when Malayna is in school all day and I can spend most of my time working on milkshake crafts.

Here's a sneak peek of some new images I'm working on. This is the first phase - I draw the images on paper with a black marker, then scan them. I then use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to clean up the lines and play around with color and pattern inside the images.


The Lola Show

Yes, I know that my banner up there still says "summer 2011." That's because I'm in denial about it being fall and summer being over. I'll change it soon.

In the meantime, here are some photos of Lola to make you laugh. This little photo project started out at Malayna's bedtime a while back. She would make me wait outside her door, and then dress Lola in something silly. Being the control freak that I am, it turned into me bringing costumes from her dress-up bin up to her room and us dressing her together. We would sometimes come up with a theme that day, and think of all the things we could put on her. Some of these crack me up.

I've had some requests from friends on Facebook to make these into a calendar. If I do, I'll donate a portion of the proceeds to the rescue that we got Lola from - Puppies and More in New Jersey.
