Fabulous February

So January while being notable for my slow output, had its fair share of successes and definitely a really positive start to 2015. I Must Draw was featured in an article in the OC Weekly. There was an air of excitement as I hunted down a freshly printed copy which unfortunately ended in disappointment, and a trip to the library used book section where I landed a copy of a Martha Stewart business book. My husband tracked a copy down for me and there on page 28 I found myself looking at Footmoose in a very contented way.
OC Weekly Article !

In my quest for knowledge of all things paper I bought an online course about the Paper goods biz, (still haven't made my way through it all.) I learnt that half my line should be Birthday cards. It wasn't something I worried about before, I had all the major occasions covered plus the never ending line of any occasion "punny" cards. However it does make total sense, if you think about it. With that in mind 6 new designs have been created and I'm sure there will be more added to it.
a really nutty birthday card
With no event prior to Vee Day I had to make a late January display instead. I probably spent more time on making the backdrop but I think it was worth it. 
cascading hearts 100% recycled materials of course

Valentine's Display at Artists and Fleas
Wool Flower
With Valentines Day on the brain I got a bit obsessed with the idea of making fabric flowers but wanted to avoid the monotony of hand cutting each petal so I made a template and lasercut them instead. I've yet to attach a stem but I've used them as photo props to great effect. That's it for now, next event 21st and 22nd February @artistsandfleas in DTLA.
