Another holiday gift idea.
I’ve been really wanting to try creating some text based prints. I thought they might make cute gifts for friends to frame and hang on their walls.
I’m enjoying my research on this.

minaturemouse is perhaps my all time favorite and most inspiring artist. She makes me feel bad every time I look at her stuff because she draws everything I want to draw but never do.
She has made a gorgeous tote bag that we all can and should own (if we get in quick, there’s only 20 of them!)
Two Colors – Hand silkscreened
15 x 16.5 inches ( 38 cm x 42 cm)
Organic Shopping Bag with Long Handle.
100% Organic Cotton.
Limited Edition of 20!
Email her at : firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested. Or just check out her other amazing art, on flickr!

Of course he’s wearing that T-shirt. Just goes to prove that Krista’s too cool for school.

Sundays, for me, are lazy drawing time. A cup of steaming coffee, a pair of warm socks, a clean apartment and an ipod full of This American Life to listen to. Positively heavenly. I must admit that I really haven’t dedicated enough of my time or energy to my drawing in a long time….years perhaps. So this Sunday I pulled out a sketch book with renewed dedication and started to sketch out some robots. Matt was checking out the blogosphere and apparently happened upon an article on Gothamist about the World’s Smallest Deer. Before I knew it I had a doodle sketched out and as it started to take shape, I decided that I rather liked it. Here’s a quick glimpse, straight from the sketchbook. I think I might add some color on the computer. We shall see.
It’s odd to realize how much I’ve lost by not drawing regularly. Now I picture things and jab away at the paper with my pencil, desperately trying to recreate the image in my mind….but things don’t happen the way they used to! My perspective is off, my lines fall in the wrong place, and worst of all (perhaps) is my regular use of photoshop has me mentally thinking “oops, UNDO”. Can’t undo….hah. I think I deserve it though, my punishment for not picking up a pencil or some paints more often. I’m back now! I promise!

So, I have gone ahead and created a little Etsy store of my very own. I will be using it to sell little bits and pieces that I make, in the hope that it will a) make me a little bit of spare cash, b) inspire me to make many more things.
The first things listed include:
And Circus Bag!
Flynn and I have been toying over the idea of creating an Etsy for baked goods and candies! It would solve the problem of making things and then eating them and getting fat. Hehe.

Keiko has finally, officially out grown her original puppy bed. Something she was really not meant to do, she’s much bigger than she should be! So, now she needs a new bed. I set out copying the basic pattern of her original Cath Kidston, red star, small bed and decided to use my red spot cotton duck to make the new one (I really wanted to make it out of pink strawberry, but I think it might have killed Matt). I had to restitch things a few times to get it quite right, Keiko was VERY (un)helpful whilst I was stuffing and sewing it, so I decided to throw together a little Destroy Toy for her to munch on whilst I was working, she loves him!
The bed turned out perfectly, it’s nice and big so she can curl up in it and roll around and not fall out. Unfortunately she prefers to dig the cushion out and get underneath it, something like a Shiba Inu hamburger. Hrmm.
