Mini Blog Break/Changes

I will be taking a mini blog break... for a week or so... I guess I should say that I'm now excited about moving into a new place of my own and setting up a new studio and a small garden. Spring is all about growth and rebirth - so I'll be moving onward and upward! I found this really great book by Jill Butler... just the inspiration I need!

Artist Trading Card Goodies

I haven't made Artist Trading Cards for awhile - I have a collection of probably 200+ from different trades I've participated in. So, I walked into my university bookstore today and found the cutest little packets of paper ever! They are only 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"... They are made for creating ATC's and they are just so tiny! Strathmore Artist Papers is the manufacturer. You have to check these out! They have several different kinds of paper packs. Here are a few! They even have mini envelopes! Icouldn't resist - I bought some of each kind...

Dolly Progress

She's actually kind of scary-looking right now - and she has no arms or legs attached, but I'm having a lot of fun making this doll - hopefully I'll get some paint on her this weekend. I'm really anxious to make her clothes!
