Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US, so we will be playing board games and eating (a lot)….

 Happy Thanksgiving!

great holiday ideas

November 25, 2008

Olio United just released their holiday gift guide and man do they put a mean one together.  That shouldn’t surprise me, though they have impeccable taste over there.   I am super flattered they included me in it!  If you live in Portland it is a gorgeous store, if not, they are online also, go check ‘em out!



one of these things is just like the other

November 24, 2008

I’ve been listening to this a lot, at J’s urging  (liking it very much)


and going to see this tonight! (i’m such a sucker for a good vampire story)

We went to the mountains this past weekend to enjoy Aunt G and Uncle K and play around in the snow!

cool mom picks

November 20, 2008

Thank you to cool mom picks for including me in their holiday gift guide!  I love how they break it down (my paintings are under ‘I need something for daddy from the kids’).   


Also, the new poppytalk handmade market is now up.  Another great stop for your holiday shopping!

sweet little pendant

November 18, 2008

I have a beautiful new little pendant in my shop. It is a sterling silver pendant with your choice of baby girl, girl, baby boy and boy image. They come with a sweet little print of the same image and beautifully packaged. These would make an amazing gift for any mother!


bkids gift guide for boys

November 17, 2008

Bloesem kids posted their holiday gift guide for boys today and I was thrilled to see my Grabbing the Brass Ring print was on it!  Some really great ideas on this and the other holiday guides over there.


making a list

November 17, 2008

So I thought I would catalog some of my favorite things I have seen this season that would make great gifts.  At least things I would love to receive (this is for you, dear )  *edit* ok, ‘dear’, that sounds kinda strange, I don’t honestly call him that.  we just call eachother by our names.  just thought I’d mention.


1.   polaroid camera   2.  cupcake cuff (anthropologie)  3.  fedorable hat (terry graziano)  4.  handmade soap (onono)


November 12, 2008

Irene at Bloesem was kind enough to do a post on my work on both Bloesem and Bloesem kids!  Thank you!  And thank you for all the shoe love comments over there.  They are my favorite pair right now and thought the color went perfectly with the prints I was photographing.



fawn girl

November 11, 2008

A quick little note to say I added a new print to the shop.  I painted this piece a while ago and have never made a print, but I saw it sitting in a file this morning and had a new appreciation for her, so here she is!


I’m a grommet

November 11, 2008

I’m sure you’re thinking, a what?  The Daily Grommet is a site featuring a new find (or ‘grommet’) daily.  The fun part is that you actually get to see these two lovely ladies actually talking about and using the grommet.  Go take a look!


More Prints

My calendars were featured over at Real Simple Magazine yesterday!  Thank you so much to Holly Becker!


new in the shop

November 5, 2008

I have just added a couple new prints to the shop.  They are part of a large series I’ve been working on, so expect more over the coming weeks.  They are done on painted wallpaper so they have a subtle, beautiful texture.



It’s a beautiful day…

We’re having mac n cheese and apple pie for dinner tonight while we watch the election coverage.  Relieved, excited and nervous today is finally here.

cute shop

November 3, 2008

I just found my new favorite online shop that I can not purchase from.  Which, I suppose, is a good thing because I would be having a spending meltdown.  If you want to see beautiful product after beautiful product, go here, now and spend the next hour looking around.  sigh….
