The Birds




I'm still working hard to build up lots of new inventory for the sale this weekend. Yesterday, I cranked out a dozen or so of this paper bird cage lanterns.

I used nearly all screen-printed papers by Hambly on these pieces If you're not familiar with Hambly, you should check out their website. They create the most amazing papers. The patterns and colors are incredible.

If you would like a bird cage to call your own, please stop by here on Sunday. After the sale, I'll be listing these on Etsy too.


New Blooms

Paper Flowers

One of my favorite resources for paper just brought in some amazing new colors of crepe. I ordered a few rolls, and I've been having a blast playing with this new palette. There are lots of shades of pink, ranging from pale cotton candies to watermelon. Also, there's butter yellow, icy green, cream, ivory and white tones. There's even an amazing rusty brown.

The new colors have inspired me to try some new flower shapes and styles of blooms. Here's a little peek...
