March Desktop Wallpaper: Spring Has Sprung

I’ve been pretending it’s springtime, despite the fact that Portland has been blanketed with snow off and on these past couple of weeks. My flower garden is doing its best to burst through the wintry land, and this is my homage to its efforts. Help ring in spring with these little forest creature computer desktops.

February Desktop Wallpaper: I Love Mew Cat

This time of year, my cat, Lydia, wants all cuddles, all the time. I'd like to pretend it's me she wants, but I know she's just after body heat (and behind-the-ear scritches, of course). To soak up a bit more of that snuggly magic, I put together this cute little illustration. If you want to send a little kitty love to someone you know, I have cards with this design in my shop. Feel the feline love all month long with these computer and phone desktop backgrounds.

January Desktop Wallpaper: Carpe Annum

I get so inspired at the beginning of every year with all the goals and possibilities that the new year holds. So "Carpe Annum" - or "Sieze the Year" - has become my unofficial motto for this time of year. There's just something magical about new beginnings (or maybe it's just the sugar rush from eating nothing but holiday leftovers for a week straight). Hold on to some of that new year magic all January with these computer and phone desktops.

Embroidery Pattern: Stumpwork Tombstone & Ghost

I've wanted to try 3D stumpwork embroidery for quite a while, and what better way to learn a technique than to teach it? I created this wired ghost popping out of a tombstone, with a PDF that has a tutorial for the stumpwork technique you'll need. I love the fact that he's ready to escape from the frame!

Print: No Power in the 'Verse

I just can't stop with the quotes! I've been mentally collecting quotes for so long, just waiting for the skills to do something with them. Turns out, doing something with them is just the practice I need to have the skills. Funny how that works.

This little line from the TV show Firefly is something I repeat to myself quite often. Things may slow me down from time to time, but there's no stopping this train.
