muchas gracias!

so many things to be thankful for this early spring. the great weather. homemade spaghetti sauce on the stove. friends bringing fresh salmon by the house for dinner. clothes hanging on the line (yes, in Oregon in February!). hope you're thankful for lots of things today and maybe someone deserves a thank you card in their mailbox this week!

oil cloth dress card

I've had a stack of oil cloth for so long and finally ventured out and started sewing it on cards with fun quips (albeit crooked on this card!). hope it makes you feel sunny! remember to send a card to a friend today!

typing through the tulips!

this is the sheet that starts the process .... the word is typed over and over again on a sheet of paper. it gets a bit dizzying if i continue to look at it while i type!
...the sharpie comes into play with the tulip sketches and then....

the colors are filled in and the fabric paint makes the stem. tulips are my absolute favorite flower and i hope these put a smile on your face as well.
