two new little ones!

Today was the perfect day to make the cork dolls because a cold front just blew in to Austin and its a wee bit chilly even for small objects! This pattern is so easy and fun, a perfect way to welcome the fall.<3 Laura

I recently made a series of mini botanical water color paintings on cardboard . There all about 1 inch by 2inch drawings . I was inspired by my moms' collection of botanical prints in the house I grew up in in Connecticut. Check out let me know what you think!

Cork or Korknisser

While waiting for my Miley Cyrus download (true story) I stumbled upon this really cool knitting pattern for a little cork doll in a sweater and hat from the Netherlands called a Korknisser on Saarteje knits blog. Click here for the link!

purple faze

I've been up to a lot of studio organizing lately and feeling very domestic to say the lest. I finally got an inspiration board from target 4 tiles for 5 bucks! (as seen above). I've started a new body of work that I'm feeling pretty good about which I will post soon. I know your tired of me posting about flowers but I saw a Martha Stewart flower arrangement that involved carnations which was beautiful. I thought man carnations really are they not the flower dubbed tacky by myself and many people? Well any way I went to the grocery store and found these beautiful ($4) carnations and these other flowers which are nameless right now in a deep purple shades and made these two beautiful arrangements . Yeah carnations my new flower of choice!
