Check out this charming treasury created by Tina of StitchingInCircles.

Ready for Inspiration!

The dissertation theme is such a good one!  I love the muted color palette.  Almost makes me miss those days as a student, working hard in the library, deadlines looming.  I feel for all the people out there working on the daunting task of completing their dissertation!  My print Finishing the Dissertation, was inspired by my big sister, who is working towards her PhD right now.  Thanks to Tina of StitchingInCircles for thoughtfully including my work!

Good luck to all those hard-working students out there returning to school.

Wandering in Michigan

Photos taken during a walk down by the lake yesterday.

We walked down to our neighborhood pub the other evening and it turned out to be a really fun time.  What good food they had!  We were all in need of some decompression. French fries with good ranch dressing, tasty summer beer, and chocolate can definitely help with that.  As well as a good walk in the rain.

New Location

I am pleased to share that I will be broadcasting this blog from Northern Michigan for the time being. 

 We are preparing for an extended stay here in the North. 

Looking forward to sharing some pictures of our time here! 

What a busy summer it's been.

2 - Really loud cars/trucks/motorcycles (they hurt my ears)

3 - Mustaches on sticks (I don't get the craze)

Two New Prints Listed Today!

Summer sundresses were the inspiration for these two new prints in my shop. {stay tuned to the blog for updates about my new shop venue, coming spring 2012}

I could just live in sundresses all summer.  They are so easy to wear, especially the nice cotton kind.  Today the breeze was cooler and I was reminded that fall will be here soon though.  I plan to make the most of the rest of this season and wear my favorite dresses. 

These two drawings are now for sale in 8 x 10" prints!  Coming soon: ACEO and 5 x 7" prints.
