Party Invitations

My daughter is turning 5 and wants a Pink Princess Dinosaur Party.  You may have guessed, there are no pink princess dinosaur party invitations out there.  So, I decided to make one.

Here's the drawing.

Here's the watercolor painting.

Here's the finished invitation and a very happy little girl!

Amazing Studios

I have been planning to redo, or at least reorganize my studio for some time now.  I have recently moved into a smaller space and I have to rethink what I really need.  I don't know about the rest of you out there but, I really hate to throw away art supplies when I think there is some possibility (however remote) that I may use them in the future.  I also need to rearrange for a better work flow.  I spend a lot of time just searching for what I need.  Somehow I always end up having piles and piles of STUFF covering every work surface.  So first item on the agenda:  PILES OF STUFF have to go.

In my search for how other artists arrange their studios, I came across this really organized and pretty studio belonging to designer Nicole Balch on her Making it Lovely blog.
