A graphic designers dream was had on Monday evening. Hubby and I landed at his grandparents to look at an old army trunk, and tucked away in the corner of the attic was this! I'm so inspired by the color, pattern and sheer quality of this mighty and old book. Here is the cover/label and a few of my favorite pages. Imagine any of these patterns with matching curtains!

Chirp.Tweet. En route!

The birdies are tired of snow and thrilled to be headed to sunny California! An early present for the mommy-to-be.

It's not quite finished, but here is another in my sketchbook printing experiments! (with quality control monitored by my "helper"). Oh yes! and I have a home in mind for the lil' birdies––one of my readers.

Hmmm, who could it be? Stay tuned!

Happy 2009!

Happy New Year! I hope in your reflections on 2008 you have fond memories of a fun filled year...and, that you are looking forward to another.

I spent the first half of vacation a little busier than expected, then the second half ended up a little duller than expected, but no worries because in all that I found a fun new creative thing. Printing! I received a great book for Christmas that has inspired me to experiement in this new world. My first attempt is below. I'm excited with the results. This is a 12 inch muslin pillow with a botanical from my sketch book. Yay! I love that I can transfer a doodle into something physical.

On another note, it will be one year of the "bliss blog" this month. I can't believe it! So to commemorate, I gave her a lil' face lift. I figured something more upbeat and reflective of my creative mission to start this blog was due. Enjoy!
