Illustration Friday - Round

Illustration Friday - Round
Round is the word of the week on Illustration Friday. I decided to draw a cute kitten that is super round. As you may know, I love kitties, especially ones that are snow white like my cat, Nilla. This illustration is inspired by Nilla and how round she can make herself at times. Let's see how roundy that cat can be...

The puff stole Raoul's seat.

Tunesday Tuesday: the Softies

Tunesday Tuesday: the Softies
For a while Raoul had asked me to make a Tunesday Tuesday post about one of our favorite bands, the Softies. The Softies are Rose and Jen, and together they make the sweetest, dare I say "softest" music around. I have loved them since my college days, and I still play their albums on heavy rotation. I have seen them play a few times "back in the day," and each time it was a real treat. I even saw them open for Superchunk! I will never forget it cos someone yelled "turn up the drums!" and well, the Softies are simply two girls and their guitars!

ICE Holiday Weekend 2011

Time sure is flying over here at the Ranch! Last week was Thanksgiving, and the week before that was the ICE Atlanta holiday market! We had two very busy days and had so much fun this year. In the morning and saw the long line forming to get into ICE. The early bird shoppers all got goodie bags! That line went all the way around the block!Let's take a look.

While people waited in line, they also got some coffee and other goodies from Ursa Minor Coffee, a rolling café from Asheville, North Carolina. I had a hot chocolate and Raoul had a mango smoothie. Both were delish and was a great treat to have during a busy holdiay-filled day.

Glue and Glitter is our friend Becky. She makes lovely aprons with cupcakes, lunch bags, and cup gloves all from recycled and vintage materials. She is the best at finding really cute fabrics and making them into wonderful things!

Fernworks and Marisol Spoon were our neighbors at the craft show. They both had some beautiful works of art at their tables, some were wearable, too.

This baby train made it all the way up the stairs! We were amazed they made it, but we never saw them leave. I wonder how they made it out of ICE?

Illustration Friday - Vanity

Illustration Friday - Vanity
The word of the week on Illustration Friday is vanity. Here is a little spot illustration that I made for CROQ Zine a few years ago. This was for their article on DIY Beauty! It makes me think of the song "Hall of Mirrors." I really love these homemade videos from Youtube.
