Little Things

Enjoyed drawing a bunch of cute tiny icons for my good friend Claire Teschel's new site. I love little houses!

In fact, we'll be moving the last of our belongings into our very own little house this weekend. Let's cross our fingers for good weather :)
Happy Friday, everyone!

Working Weekend

Proud of all the great things we accomplished with the invaluable help of my parents during their visit!

Our kitchen went from my least favorite part of the house to something we are really happy with and eager to use. We certainly learned a thing or two about carpentry, painting, plumbing and electrical odds & ends. The house is becoming our home and I'm so grateful for all the help and hard work from my parents. We couldn't have done it without them, for sure!

We didn't have any time for kayaking, picnicking or fancy dinners during their visit, but I discovered that a late night meal of pizza in the middle of an empty living room floor, surrounded by sawdust and paint cans, listening to old blues and laughing exhaustedly after a day of hard work is something that no pricey restaurant can ever top.

Desk of Cards

Here are a bunch of my new cards and scrapbooking stickers that you can find at WalMart. The first 7 pictured here are printed on 100% recycled paper (with my cute little "eco" icons on the back), which is fabulous! Yay for post-consumer material :)

Happy Birthday

Here are the icons I designed for the backs of our recycled-content cards. They're pretty cute, if I do say so myself.

Endless thanks to my parents for their company and invaluable assistance this week! So happy to have them visit and help us make our house a home :)

Thanks to Lucky's in Tremont for inviting Julia, Emily and I to hang our work in their lovely café! The art hangs through the end of August and will be part of the Tremont Art Walk Friday, August 14th.
