It's been a while since I've used rubber stamps. Especially this one. I made this one about this time last year, and, apparently, had never printed with it. So I had to take it from it's place and see how it turned out. And I must say, I liked it! I'm excited to do some card printing and maybe some little gift prints. Siestas and olas.

I've been trying to branch out lately. Mostly into the realm of ink/ watercolor in an effort to add spice to my style. But I can't make myself do it! I ADORE black and white line drawings and feel that if I add color, it takes away from my style. Ideas on how to get around this? Maybe it's just a practice thing.
But I did branch out a wee bit on the above piece. I even left the pencil lines as an added bit. This little drawing pays homage to my shopping trip the other day and how grateful I am for finding such cheap and cute things that actually fit me! Yay for stripes, neutral colors and bulky $14 sweaters!

So i received all my organic cotton yarn in the mail today. Baby K and I had a good time winding it into hanks to prep for dying. I working on a line of veggie/fruit dyed organic baby toys. I'm knitting all this into little fruit and veggie toys to sell on my etsy shop. I'm so excited! I even got organic cotton stuffing to stuff them with.
As i write, once test hank is simmering in it's pre-dye bath while a pot of spinach is simmering next to it, to make green dye!
I really hope it turns out ok!

So it's been quite a few months since ive tasted ocean. Sadly. But with the two months being sick, then bronchitis then New Zealand, then sick again then the stormy... I have not gotten in the water this winter. Curse of being a mama to a tiny tot. My gills are dry. My skin and hair are oily and not tan or blond. I miss it.. a lot a lot.
So i've been sustaining myself on drawing, painting and balance boarding in the living room. I would watch my favorite movie, Sprout, but it was borrowed and never returned. boo.
Chin up though, soon enough I shall dip my toes in once again.
