Needle and thread
My tangled mess

For scale

When the days are gray and chilly all I want to do is embroider :)
I'm a very messy keeper of thread.
Even though I try to tidy up my floss it always ends up in a tangled mess.
These ladies will knock your socks off with their thread magic:

I am more than thrilled to tell you about my new coloring book/journal I did in collaboration with Galison! Here is the description from Galison:

A Galison Avian Friends activity journal is a great gift for creative friends. The journal measures 7 x 8-3/4" with a lay-flat opening that makes it inviting to use.

In addition to being a great journal for writing, the interactive book's 112 pages guide budding visual artists through coloring, watercolor, sketching, completing drawings, and in keeping with the theme, creative activities like designing birdhouses.

Best of all, the book is fully designed throughout with charming birds, flowers, and still lifes by internationally acclaimed illustrator Geninne D. Zlatkis. A bonus interview sheds light on the artist's creative process and inspiration. 

The 'internationally acclaimed' part just makes me giggle :-P is now available at Galison, Amazon and select stores all over the world.
I had so much fun creating all of the illustrations for this book, 
I hope you will enjoy it as well.
I'm celebrating with a giveaway! 
Please leave your name and where you're from in the comment section of this blog to participate. You have until next Friday at noon (Mexico City time) to play. 
I'll announce the winner on Saturday. Just one comment per person please.
-The winner will receive an autographed copy of the book plus a signed 5" x 5" one of a kind ink drawing made by me and one print of your choosing from my Etsy shop.
I will ship anywhere in the world so you are all welcome to participate!
Hugs from sunny Mexico, xoxo Geninne
