Workbook 2012


Just got the Fall Workbook in the mail and wanted to share here, along with my page from the Spring Workbook.  Very nice page design and layout Pat and Piper! I like how the script lettering contrasts with the clean design, kudos to graphic designer, George Zipparo!

morning views of Washington

August 19, 2012
I wanted to share a few other photos I recently shot of the Washington skyline. My day began insanely early that morning, thanks to my restless dogs.  Rather than watch tv, I grabbed my camera and headed out for a morning drive.  I'm not usually an early riser, but this felt like a special occasion and I would soon discover why.  As I walked up the hill to the Netherlands Carillon and looked down at the view of the city, all I could see were clusters of colorful flowers everywhere! Jackpot! Minutes later, I was almost giddy, laying in the slick grass to get the best angles. Visually, it was almost overwhelming, the way foreground colors and textures were relating to the day breaking sky. Each flower seemed to lend something different to the iconic DC skyline.  Sure it was way too early in the morning and the white polo (I was wearing) will probably never be as bright white, but these pics made it all worth while. : )

skater boy stickers

It's been a super busy Summer and as it begins to wind down, I'm reminded that I have a lot of catching up to do here on the blog. First, I'd like to share a recent collaboration with Peaceable Kingdom Press. I got these samples in the mail a few months back and was so happy with how they came out. Kinda funky cool right? I guess little skater and bmx boys/girls want stickers too. : )
