Mary Poppins Birthday Card

March 31st, 2014 · Celebrations, Crafts, Disney, paper crafts, printables

My niece is a Mary Poppins Super-Fan so I made a card using images from Disney’s Spoonful Crafts website.

First I created the word and moved it around until I liked how it looked, then I added the Mary image on top and adjusted the transparency to 85%

You can get both Mary Poppins and Bert Silhouettes here.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Kermit

Fun facts:

In 2012 34.1 million U.S. residents claimed Irish ancestry. This number was more than seven times the population of Ireland itself (4.6 million). Irish was the nation’s second most frequently reported ancestry, trailing only German.

There are 16 places in the United States that share the name Dublin, including nearby to me Dublin, California with a population of 47,156.

Doodle-y Do, Something to Do

March 13th, 2014 · Links

For fun I’ve been taking Lisa Congdon‘s line drawing class over at Creative Bug. I didn’t expect the  meditative benefit of drawing random lines and shapes. My lunchtime doodles are so relaxing.

As always, when I find one form of art I love, I go down a rabbit hole and can spend days looking for other artists and reading all about them.

Here are a couple that stand out:

Julia Rothman : She does quite a bit of editorial work, and book illustration. And I adore the pattern for linens she created!

Clever, clever Wendy MacNaughton collaborated on a scratch and sniff wine book! The Essential Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert: Take a Whiff of That

She often shows her sketch book on her blog, and is also working on a “Lost Cat” project.

Both Lisa and Wendy are local to me, so I’ll have to keep an eye out for “open studio” possibilities.
