Sketchbook No. 1

I have always kept a sketchbook. Back in art school, it was a requirement but I did not mind. I loved keeping a sketchbook because it was a place to explore ideas and capture notes without any judgement. Well, that is until I let my inner critic out of the closet....

Now, I have black coil bound sketchbooks where I collect images of everything that inspires me. And I realize that A LOT inspires me. Everything from fashion and home décor accessories to handmade crafts and beautiful packaging. My tastes and the range of stuff that I find inspiring is endless. How can I love so much? Oh, but I do....

And to be honest, I clip images of what I love out of magazines faster than I can glue-stick them into my sketchbooks. I am so far behind that if I was to stack up all of the pages I have clipped out already, it would come up to my knees. And I am not kidding!!! Is there group therapy for this?

Happy clipping....snip, snip, snip....

Restocked in Anthropologie

To my pleasant surprise, more ring holders have been restocked at Anthropologie in Calgary. I am happy to see that they have been positioned on the vintage artist table/easel with all of the sparkly jewelry.
Thank you to Melissa and Jaime at Anthropologie for giving a small artist like myself the opportunity to fulfill my dream (more like Fantasy!) of seeing my ring holders sold in my favorite store of all time. I wish that all of the orphaned saucers ring holders find many happy homes.
