Preparing for the National Stationery Show

Lately, I've been busily preparing for the National Stationery Show in New York in a few weeks, so I thought I'd share some of my process with all of you today.

I have a bit of a different goal for Inktober this year, and I'm excited to share that goal on Instagram soon. But in the meantime, I wanted to share a coloring page from last year's collection, and so I present this little levitating witch.

The rainy season is upon us here in Oregon, but it’s so nice to see all the greenery growing all around, I hardly even notice the gray.
