New cards!

I love the understated red of these cards, and the simple little snowflake in the corner.
I had some white ones for sale this year, but I like these better because you can see the white interior of the card shine through the snowflake cutout.

Did you know I made dog biscuits? Oh yes!

These peanut butter ones in particular are huge favorites with everydog who tries them. They have so much peanut butter in them, if they containted sugar, they'd be peanut butter cookies!

Hand Carved Sailboat

This Sailboat print was inspired by my Grandfather's love of sailing. They recently sold their sailboat and the print was a gift at Christmas last year. I'm running this as a limited edition of 100, signed and numbered.

It was created by carving Speedycut and hand-mixing midnight blue ink. I'm probably most proud of it, out of all the carvings I've done.

I'm also considering offering some framed prints, although I'll have to purchase the frames myself and shipping costs will go way up... Maybe I'll do ONE, and see if it sells.

Washi Note Cards!

New for today, vibrant washi paper note cards. I've coordinated some pretty handmade Japanese papers with bright cardstock and matching envelopes in several sets of 4-packs. They're pretty and very affordable!

Washi Paper Mini-Cards!

I whipped up a ton of these wonderful little mini-cards this afternoon and just listed them tonight! I'm in love with washi paper, and a seller that I recently did a trade with, (the very lovely Xiane), was wondering if I could make some smaller-scale cards with the washi paper I use for my larger cards. Well sure! And what a great idea!

I love the way these turned out, they're a perfect size for leaving little love notes on pillows, dropping notes in lunchboxes, sending a thank-you in an Etsy package or garnishing a gift.

These owls warm my heart, they're so dang retro looking and they turned out exactly how I wanted them to!

Sock Monkey!

So little, so cute - so socky!

I'm having far too much fun coming up with new block prints and little stamps - here's my latest, a sock monkey.

Item of the Day!

One of my favorite "time wasters" is to punch in random words to search on Etsy. Tonight I tried the combination: Moose Booger, but alas, nothing came up. So the second item that popped into my head was Caviar - and on page 2 of the search results, these beautiful earrings appeared by LoopsDesigns.

Very nice!
