3D Madagascar 3 Papercrafts!

I'm super excited to share the 3D papercrafts and other fun activities we did for DreamWorks Madagascar 3. The 3D Alex and Marty are really easy to make and we had such a blast creating them. I just love the movies DreamWorks creates and am always so thrilled to be working with them. Check out the site, there is a ton of fun stuff to play with and we created all of the create & print projects. You can find them under downloads.

The whole crew will be cutting out of the studio early on Friday to get our afro circus on. You should too!

This baby rolls!
Super easy and cute Alex!

Inspiration Trip

I just came back from an inspiration/business trip to San Francisco. I have to say, it was really rewarding and though I miss being away from the family it's really nice to go solo sometimes. I did what ever I felt like doing!
This trip was extra special because I had the opportunity to hang out with my Aunts and Uncle (on my husbands side).  I was also able to explore the city alone and with my wonderful client from Snapfish. She took me to the Alameda Antiques Fair (which is awesome!) and around the city a bit. I was going crazy with my camera and posting to instagram...I'm obsessed!!

One place that inspired me most was in the kitchen of my Aunt Mary. I swear, every woman I have ever met from this Emerson family is extremely creative...I want to be just like them when I grow up.

Mary is a retired typesetter and production artist who sews, crochets, paints, collages and well I guess what ever she fancy's. Her home is her canvas and for the last 20 years she's been transforming her kitchen into another world inspired by India and the Chinese culture. I was awestruck the moment I entered. Everywhere you looked something wonderful was to be discovered. From a feathered photo frame, collaged walls, and intricate paintings to gilded crown molding that may have once been used in something else fantastic. It was all so beautiful.

The rest of her house didn't not let me down. Her formal dining room was decorated with eclectic frames, photos, paintings and drawings. Her work room filled with a wonderful assortment of books and current projects she's working on. She pulled out a beautiful quilt in progress and shared with me the little rabbits she makes. Everything was so delightful but more than anything, Mary was.

This is above the kitchen sink!

Globe art

Check out the globe art by Wendy Gold of ImaginNations. They are repurposing globes by creating personalized ones to fit your style or occassion. It's a pretty cool idea, I think with some mode podge and themed imagery it would be a really fun project to create over a weekend. I love the “Where the Wild Things Are” one. How fun would it be to have one for your travels or wedding theme? So cute!

Little Paper Necklaces

These little paper and chalkboard necklaces by Marti Emmons of Coco Delay are eco-fun. I love the little chalkboard command key necklace...of course it's a chalkboard so you could put anything on it really.
There's also something really sweet about the simple paper, stamp and charm ones as well.

Marti is a Portland, OR based artist who makes handmade jewelry and mosaic collage art fashioned from origami and recycled paper, check her out.

This one's really lovely, so delicate.

so cute

Letterpress Love

I'm so excited!! Over the weekend I purchased a wee little Letterpress, The Excelsior Kelsey 5x8 Victory. For being at least 100 years old this little guy is in awesome shape. I was pretty lucky to find it right here in Portland, Oregon even, Yay! I'm taking some baby steps to grow my card business ( I have a line of cards on Snapfish currently) but I'll be expanding wedding this year...stay tuned. For now, I just can't wait to start printing!!!

I've also joined this sweet little group called the Ladies of Letterpress, dedicated to the position that a woman's place is in the print shop. So if you are also a woman with a press I'de check them out!

Check out these old ads for the press :)

Photo Walls

I love photo walls, and I love the creative ways people design them. I was inspired by this and created a heart collage for the holidays, it was so well received that I'm doing a series of them, everything from Valentines day to new baby and you can order them on Snapfish.

Here awesome other great photo walls.

Happy Winter Solstice!

Every year at this time I try to reflect upon the year's pass and take solace in welcoming the New Year.

Winter Solstice reminds me of a time for renewal and honoring the light within us.
It's a perfect time to believe in the magic and spirit of the season.

So with that, I send you warm wishes in the form of a little papercraft snow angel.
May the light of the sun shine upon you all year long.
