I received my first book in the Vintage Valentine Round Robin earlier this week. It was a day when I had been moping around with no focus and as soon as our mail carrier handed me the package from Marilyn I opened it and got right to work. I love it when the muse cooperates and things just flow. I did this page first and everything fell together just right. The theme of Marilyn's book is CUPID and I happened to have this ATC is progress on my desk so I just kept going.
The other day I did my second panel in the book which was this fun bit with a cute cupid growing his patch of hearts. I had such fun working in this book and eagerly awaited the next book which arrived today. I started my layout but had to stop and let things dry so it is not finished yet. I also spent some time this morning working on choosing goodies for my partner Jeanne in ArtsyMama's Heart Swap. FUN!
Anyway, on to the post of my blog. This is something I have been wanting to do for a little while but I am finally getting around to doing it. Each Friday ( I hope, maybe Saturdays) I plan to share some GOOD STUFF, which are some of the things I find that I love.. especially from indie artists. Do without further ado....
My first pick (there are so many in my file) is something I just found today. I was visiting Emily's Blog (Inside A Black Apple) and was delighted to find her new stationary sets and postcards. I like all her designs but especially her whimsical "Hello" birdcages... Aren't they just the cutest?? You can see this design and all of her others as well as paintings, dolls and more in her Etsy shop.
Finally and not least.. there is still time to enter my give away. Just check out the post below! Have a great weekend.
