This is Beau's first self portrait, and a rather eerie one at that... hope everyone has a fantastic Halloween!
Autumn swap update... I have already received an AWESOME package from a very cool woman in Ohio, and my package goes out in the post tomorrow (one day late, but I hope she'll forgive me once she opens it up).. pictures and details soon...
I've had these materials on my desk since mid-summer. This batch of collages was a struggle for me, I'm not sure why. But one day last week I was sifting through the package of materials and thought, "houses."
I've got some new goodies for the vintage shop, and some wonderful new press, too! Babyology, a fantastic Australian blog, has featured my bookplates... check out "Bling for Books" here. (Thanks so much, Nikki!) I'm so glad I found the site, it's full of cool things for babies and parents.
Here are the new bookplates, with one for the holidays:
Vintage Beach Child Personalized Bookplates
Vintage Snowman Personalized Bookplates
Vintage Blue Bird Personalized Bookplates
I just love this last design, I love how old it looks, and I adore the creamy color over the blue. The original design came from the end pages of a very old children's hymn book, and I had to do a lot of tweaking to make it work, but it was worth it! This design isn't in the store yet, I'll be adding it tomorrow night.
Okay, it almost kills me that I'm posting this because I WANT this painting.
But I was just checking up on Khairun's giveaway, and a paltry six people have entered to win this gorgeous piece of work. Hello? Is everyone too busy with.. I don't know, what is everyone too busy with?
