I just finished some new softcover journals using my new buttons. Some of these have standard handmade buttons from Bumblebeads. The others are using the new handmade buttons with my bird design on them. Dede from Bumblebeads made them specifically for me.

Nourish Restaurant Painting Delivered

Nourish

Nourish

I was recently asked to create a painting for the Nourish Restaurant in Sequim. This painting would then be used as the basis for creating coasters, 6×6 trivets and cards. I just delivered the painting and all of these products to Nourish and they are now for sale. I am very excited about this opportunity. Next time you are at this great restaurant, please check out the painting and products.

Handmade Buttons for Journals

I recently met Dede Leupold (Bumblebeads) who makes hand made buttons. I bought a bunch of these buttons to go on my softcover journals and I’m anxious to do that,

Additionally, I asked her to make some that have my logo on them so I could use those as well. I am very excited about these new buttons and can’t wait to get some softcover journals made with these great hand made buttons.

 

New Journals

Hardcover journals with exposed spine

I just finished a bunch of new blank journals. Some have a hard cover with exposed spine and others have soft wrap-around covers. I am taking most of these shown to the Focus on Book Arts conference in Oregon this week, where I’ll have them for sale in the artist shop.

The newest children’s book that I illustrated is just about ready to head to print and should (fingers crossed) be ready for the Sequim Lavender Festival. Here is the cover of this book. It was a lot of fun to do the illustrations in this book.

I have finished the illustration drawings for the newest book by Gene Bradbury. This one will be called “Kitten Kitty Reads a Book” and will be for pretty little kids. The drawings are done and now on to the painting. The book should be out early to mid-summer.

The other book of Gene’s that I illustrated, called “When Cricket’s Snore”, was published last summer. It was a lot of fun to do and so far this one is as well.
