We’re fostering a dog! We’ve been talking about adding a pup to our little family for ages now, but the prospect of finding the right one seemed a bit daunting.   But I had dogs on the brain.  (I have for years.)  We realized fostering might be the way to go.  So a couple weeks ago, when I spotted a calm, 3 year old –who was good with cats!– needing a New England foster, we jumped!

She is adorable.


Seriously, the photos do not do her justice.  More to come…

Thanks for the Etsy Treasury Love!

September 22, 2010

I’m happy to tell you, a bunch of my prints have been featured in various Etsy Treasuries lately!

For those of you who don’t speak ‘Etsy’:

The Treasury is an ever-changing, member-curated shopping gallery of handpicked items. Members can feature their favorite items, items selected on a theme or just whatever they like. The Treasury is not intended for self-promotion, but instead to acknowledge and share the many cool things for sale on Etsy.

I wanted to list them here, as each one was beautifully curated.  Click on the images to purchase/check out the goodies!

Aren’t they pretty?  Hmm I know I’m bookmarking some of them for presents later on…

Thanks so much to Sol Del Sur, eat pray create, live.flourish, Miss Emmy Green, and artsyville for including me!

Illustrator Crush: Susan Gal

September 20, 2010

Sometimes drawing feels like work– and not because it actually is.  More like…things get dull.  Luckily, when that happened the other day I was nosing around and came across Susan Gal of Gal Girl Studios.  A little bit retro, with lots of great textures and patterns, her work reminded me to have fun:

See what I mean?

This one made me laugh out loud:

Tiny me on Uppercase Mag blog

September 7, 2010

I recently submitted a piece to Uppercase magazine for their “Feeling Bookish?” call for entries.  They were asking for self portraits of artists as book covers:

I love Uppercase.  G got it for my mom for her birthday last year and she’s been generously sharing her copies with me.  Each one is so gorgeous and printed on thick luxurious paper…The kind of magazine you never throw away.  Basically a lovely book, you get monthly in the mail, filled with inspiration and crafty people and amazing arty things… I could go on.  But I won’t– if you haven’t already, you should check it out for yourself.

Yep, I know what I’m asking for this Christmas.

Anyways, a few days after submitting my illustration, I noticed it up on their blog!  Can you see it up there?  You have to look close!

I guess I made the short list– they’ll print their favorites in the next issue.

Fingers crossed.

Happy Birthday Sister!
