If you love carrying or creating unique purses and handbags, be sure to get a copy of April's Haute Handbags! This magazine features many amazing fiber artists who create inspiring and artistic bags. In this edition you can also find an article about my hand-painted messenger bags, which I no longer sell in my Etsy shop, but would be happy to make one for you as a custom order!
It's always good to get your kids started on Tolkien early, am I right? I showed you Baby's Guide to The Hobbit the other day - well, here is Baby's Guide to Lord of the Rings, featuring illustrations and quotes from all three parts of the great saga. A great companion to BG to The Hobbit - I even sell them in a set.
Baby's Guide to The Hobbit was one of my favorites to illustrate. Natural, as The Hobbit is one of my favorite books. There are so many great moments in The Hobbit that it was almost hard to choose just ten to recreate.
Who doesn't love Pride and Prejudice? I think it's an amazing thing to share the books we love with our little ones. Baby's Guide to Pride and Prejudice captures the flare of this everlasting love story, with a bit of the sass, too.
Over the last several months I've been working on redesigning my baby books so that they are fully integrated and 100% printed rather than painted. While I love the hand-painted versions of the books I created for Abe, I like these printed versions even better. Printing expedites the process so that I am able to put more time and detail into the paintings - making a much better book, in my opinion! Over the course of the next few days I will show you complete looks of all of my completed baby books, including some of the new ones I've created.
Of all my redesigns, Baby's Guide to Harry Potter has been one of my faves. You all know how I feel about Harry Potter so we won't go into that, but this book, y'all - such a fun baby toy. I also now have a Harry Potter blanket available in the shop, which features the same book covers you see on these pages.
