December 2014


Happy New Year! Did December fly by or what? I really did not get the chance to post much throughout the month so here I go. In Instagram terminology it would be known as a #latergram, ha!

 Beautiful Christmas themed package filled with stationery from Trisha Zemp! Trisha stuffed this package with amazing treats. Everything was so beautiful and the things she chose were so perfectly coordinated it was as if it were meant for a photo shoot...of course that's exactly what I meant to do with it all.

I did my very first linoleum carving from a sketch I drew. It's my version of a Hawaiian Santa. I decided to turn them into paper ornaments and hung them with red and white bakers twine.

A snapshot of my favorite Christmas tree ornament this year, a glittery cut out Merry Christmas sign. Right now I can't think of the proper name for it so glittery-cut-out-Merry-Christmas-sign will do.

Christmas cards from Calligraphers. A few envelopes photo'd from a Christmas calligraphy exchange I participated in. Calligrapher Mark C. even sent vintage nibs, how generous of him!

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to.
