feeling loved

It always makes me happy to see that my babies have found good homes.  These three made it all the way to Chicago.  Thanks Val!

I still have an Artichoke Blossom and a Fresh Herb or two…but Sweet Potato Blossom has sold out!

These two prints, went to Anna in Athens.  A happy home indeed!

Ah…Monday morning, and I’m content.  Life is good!

I now have two, for which I can only give you clues at the moment…it pains me so!

Today I’ll be shipping Mary & Caty to their new home in Texas.  I’m quite sure they’ll like it there.

And for a little bit of news from Studio North…Nick’s finally wrapped the CSM Paper site.  Take a peek…

Not bad eh?  Spread the word to your small business friends!  Great design and a functional website don’t have to break the bank…and trust me, we know how hard it is to be a small business in this economy…

Well, better warm up that printer, and get some cardio in this morning.  Happy Wednesday!

Take a Closer Look…

at the work of Victoria Bennett Beyer.

I’ve been meaning to write this post ever since I got my hands on Vickie’s fabulous Glass Diamonds print.  That print had stared at me for months…something, which on the surface seems so simple,  but upon a closer take reveals so many little intricate details, that’s what Vickie’s world is all about.  She captures the things we would overlook, and gives a new perspective to them.

I’m still hunting the perfect spot…but I couldn’t resist this subtly detailed frame when I saw it…perfect!

Victoria has two etsy shops, one a Mother-Daughter shop she shares with her equally artistic Mom, Milemarker.etsy.com, and she just launched a store exclusively for her paintings, Milemarker2. Oh and if you want the very latest on Vickie’s work…check out her blog…which is conveniently located on my Friends list (right hand column of this blog).

To sum things up, I am called back to a quote by the late great Georiga O’keeffe —“Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time”
Today, I will take time.  (thanks for the reminder Vickie.)

That’s right…the Rockstar Red series is all gone!  Things seem to be picking up this first week in Spring…so if you’ve been eyeing the Foodie Prints, better pay a visit to The Produce Stand quick!

Not much else going on around the studio…a little of this…and a little of that.   I have, however, decided to design my own wedding invitations.  I’m not sure how smart this idea is.  I’m plenty capable of designing invites…but my indecisive nature may just work against me here.   When to stop my inner control freak?

Anyhoo…wishing you all a lovely first weekend in Spring!  xo

Mary Musgrove that is … It’s about time she got a little recognition…an important figure in history don’t ya know? Anyhoo…I was tickled pink to see her featured on the FoundHanmade Blog along with some other Native American inspired goods.

Pretty swell right?  I might add, it’s quite fun to shop around the FoundHandmade site, and they have some stellar deals for sellers looking to promote…oh but this is the best part.
