I'm back from Artfest (and still recovering, it was pretty intense) and have something very cool to share: Parasol Magazine. Yasmine from A Print A Day has started her own free monthly magazine, and it's full of art, design, inspiration, and tutorials... not to be missed. Plus, there's a little interview with me in it! I'm so honored to be featured along with some of my favorite artists, I had to pinch myself when I looked through the issue. Please check it out!
Amanda Hawkins has designed fantastic templates for day planners. She has free downloads for 8 1/2 x 11 inch and 4 x 6 inch sizes, and if you have an idea for one you'd like, you can email her and she'll make one up for you. I'm going to use her larger sized pages and put them in a three-ring binder. I really need some organization. Thanks, Amanda!
Do you know that you can get free art every week from Dover? You just sign up and they send you a link to images every thursday. I have a file of images that I use all the time, it's really handy.
A free Hermes Kelly Bag? Yup. Cute paper versions, printed out from your home computer, here. (Click on the little guy on the right) These would make great gift bags.
My Spring Cloud Bookplates were just spied on QTea's blog in their Once Upon A Time monthly kit! Check them out, they have the cutest collection of vintage, handmade artsy items.
The schedule for Artfest 2009 is up! Yippee! Is anybody out there going, too?
Magic Jelly is holding what she calls a Paper Chase Project: she's looking for cool new papers and collage-ing materials. If you send her a package of vintage papers and ephemera (see what she's looking for here) she'll make a collage with some of your materials and send it back to you! Now that's just plain cool.
