Happy New Year!

picture my friend Julian recently took of me for a project. I had to pick a theme, guess what mine is ;)

So hopefully your Holidays are going well. mine have been..pretty good! Very relaxing though last night & today I've been gettin' back to business. Organizing my craft supplies, and doing some work due this week etc etc. Though tonight we are preparing for some New Year's festivities by making spinach pies, chilling the champagne, and preparing my party gown.

Here's hoping you have a fantastic New Year coming up, see you in '08!

I Digress

I made part of a Christmas present last night with this stuffed felt pin. Semi-pleased with the results, though I do think she'll enjoy it. I'll continue my experiments tonight while watching Manon of the Spring. I saw the first part of that film last night, Jean de Florette. The whole film looked like an Anthropologie layout. Lovely!

Mas of Essimar

I finally sent out my boss' christmas card yesterday, I figured I'd get something special so I purchased this lovely letterpress card from Starparticle.

Speaking of cards, at the last Renegade fair I purchased one from local artist Esther aka Essimar-whose shop has left me lusting after most everything!

I'm going to be busy trying to get cards and presents in order :/ Here's a picture (while not bird-related) from Camil Tulcan that I currently love and have on my desktop at work. I found it while browsing Creature Comforts' awesome flickr favorites... Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Weekend Feed

I went to the yummy restaurant here, Feed, which is all chicken-theme decorated inside. The Southern food was great and the free jukebox that played 45's was amazing. Also over the weekend I acquired some new zines and visited the Renegade Holiday sale (usual sellers which was kind of disappointing).

Pink Sparrow pins

I've been making felt banners and have thought about pins, but when looking at pink sparrow's amazing felt pins...maybe I'll just stick to the banners haha. Either way, I'm inspired!


Claire Nicholson's lavender-filled birds would be perfect to keep near one's bed. Lavender is said to help aid better sleep (via I Like). Also, inspiring me today...Jen Tong's art. Check out her website, I love the lemon prints as well.

Unrelated. 2 video clips to make your day a little sweeter :)

Packages Part1

Trying to get all my shopping done as soon as possible, but it can be pretty hectic especially since I work long hours. So, I think I'm going to do the bulk of it online. Though I am planning to buy my mother a fantastic Faryn Davis piece I think she'll love-which I found at a store. More on that later!

What I have been thinking about is presentation & packaging. I think this year I'll try to do something thoughtful and slightly intricate like Sepia Art Studio's bundles. Warm and gorgeous.
