It's a Wrap!

Wrapping paper
You're the best
Birds stamped giftwrap
Love being able to make my own wrapping paper with my hand carved stamps. I think I've loved wrapping presents since I was a teen. I have to thank my mom for that. She always took as much care on the wrapping as she did finding the perfect gift for us growing up.

Off They Go!

With love.
From Mexico with love.
I re-opened my Etsy shop last week after a long, long break. It feels good to send off all these birdies to their new homes around the world. Thank you so much to all of you that have purchased my artwork over the years!

Birds in hats
New for Galison
Look what the mailman brought in! These are the new Christmas cards I did for Galison's Holiday line for 2012! I love all the glittered details. It's weird posting Christmas stuff in the middle of summer but I just had to share these with you :-)

Vintage Stamps
Glassine envelopes
I finally replenished my paper ephemera stash 
at Angela Liguori's beautiful shop Studio Carta.
I bought some pretty vintage stamps, old glassine envelopes 
and some spools of this beautiful wrapped cotton.
