an update on the latest thing... scroll down to see the beginning stages... it's getting there. For me digital is hard because there's so many directions I could go with something it's hard to stay focused on what I want the over-all piece to look like. The building is where I want thing this to go so hopefully I can stay focused on the painterly and not the flat.

i like crafts

I wish I had more time/a good reason to make more stuff. There's something so relaxing and fulfilling about it. I made a little book this morning. I think I'm going to use it as a sketchbook for the weekend and then use it for an assignment for illustration. Take note of the cute little button...

hallmark workshop

So the workshop is done and over with.... I guess now I have to work on everything I've been putting off for the past 3 days. Oi. Anyways, the workshop was an amazing experience. We critiqued everyones ideas for the first to days, then yesterday we set to work. The assignment was to concept three different ideas for celebrating or sharing a special occasion. The one i went with was something I would give Mike after we got engaged. It would be a set of three books. One a cookbook (all handmade by me) with some recipes, room to write the experience of the recipe and then space for new recipes we use, find or create together. The second book would be a spice book,containing the most common used spices, what to do with them, shelf life and some fun facts and history. The third book will be about herbs and along the same lines as the spice book. Also I will give him the actual spices in magnetic tins that go on metal bars for the kitchen. On the back of the tins I will make labels for a quick reference for that spice, what dishes to put it in and all that...
