Cupcake Coloring Book is Ready for You!

I am so so happy to announce that my first coloring book, "Cupcakes All Year Round" is now available in my shop to purchase as a download.

I've field tested it and I find it to be quite satisfying. Thick black lines to reduce to boo-boo factor, lots of extra space for doodling...and if you print it on cardstock, it is very forgiving and sharpie-friendly.

I hope to get this guy professionally printed sometime soon. In the meantime, instant gratification + free shipping is a nice alternative.

Please visit it and let me know what you think!

Air Mail Goodies

We love airmail stuff. Just cuz. It's red. It's blue. It's modular. The very generous Babalisme from Indonesia featured a few of my airmail things among others in her blog today.

The most exciting part is her feature of airmail stationery from this super cool UK stationery store, P&C.

Photo originally from Oh Joy, another lovely blog. Now I feel like writing a letter!

I love this ring. The construction is solid with the perfect weight. It feels substantial without being too bulky or uncomfortable. I work at an active job where I am indoors and out and working with kids and with my hands. This ring has been very comfortable.

Woven Ribbon Pillow

Now that I'm *mostly* moved into my little place, I've been nesting. Curtains, painting thrifted furniture, and some other goodies.

Here is my latest sewing project: woven ribbon pillow. It's 18x18 and has a zipper so it's removable for spot cleaning. Looks lovely with my WHITE furniture. Now that I don't have cats, I can have WHITE furniture. Whoa.

It is available in my crabapple etsy shop as a custom item but is a fun project to make on your own.
