I would love to get this and be able to incorporate a more "handmade" style into my digital drawings. Sometimes a mouse just does not feel like the right tool!

I love how nice it's been outside, it's refreshing after all that stupid rain. If I ever move out of California I'll miss the feeling of warm sunshine the most. Is your lemon tree producing fruit right now? I need to get out my actual toy cameras and use up the rolls of 120 film that are sitting in my fridge. It's just so difficult to find places to develop them, plus it's another luxury expense that you don't have to think about with digital photography.

cool, I like colored pencils, it's easy to forget about coloring that way when you get used to the computer. Pencils take longer, but they look soft and I like how every hand will give them a different pressure, and "grain" (I guess?) to the way things are filled in.

I'm sure you'll be a great mom, and I can't wait to see what a clever, creative kid I'm sure you guys will have!

Maybe you can try keeping a book on tape or language tapes (CDs) or something in the car to help focus if you're driving around a lot. Sometimes when I'm getting frustrated at being in the car I make myself count to 100 in french and it helps distract me.

It's a little spooky that I was making that piece right before the earthquake in Haiti, and since then people all over have been very generously donating to organizations to send aid. Sometimes all the layers upon layers of social networking everywhere seem like a nuisance, but not when (like spreading the word about texting donations) it's has helped to connect distant parts of the world to one place where help is needed so urgently. okay, I'll do my top ten favorite movies too- though it's tricky to only pick ten because I like so many different types of films. I have a soft spot though for all these though: (in no particular order) The Princess Bride The Labyrinth Heathers Clueless Blue Velvet Never Been Kissed Best in Show The Shining Edward Scissorhands The Goonies

wow, these bags are really impressive. I love that they have ties on the sides to adjust the capacity. Looks good!

You are so mysterious, I hope we get to see some more of these projects that you've been working on. Yeah, my snowflake photos started out very soft-looking but I wanted to accentuate the shapes that are kind of accidentally created by cutting paper this way.

yeah, I should have bought a lot of things at the awesome antiques shops on Congress, but they were pretty pricy, also I never feel very safe about buying anything glass when I have to take a plane home. I do LOVE vintage glassware and dishes though. I also really like pearly snaps on shirts, I wish I had more clothes that snapped together instead of buttoned. Why did that go out of style?

nice, I like the top left two best - they remind me of mod peacocks a tiny bit.

wow, you are all kinds of organized. I like your fabric hanging setup and fabric cubes. It's really great that you have a whole room + closet for your crafty stuff, it's my dream to have an actual studio of my own someday not too far away.

Nice, your rose is very well-rendered. It makes me think of oilcloth patterns actually, something about the yellow background. Thanks for the links!

You were more thoughtful about the theme than I was this week. I like the paper cutout effect. I get the magazine "Real Simple" and every issue has one of these paper illustrations done by Matthew Sporzynski that are really amazing, I don't know if you've seen them: http://ofpaperandthings.blogspot.com/2008/08/paper-artist-of-week-matthew-sporzynski.html http://simplystated.realsimple.com/behindthescenes/2008/06/real-simples-pa.html I might do mine over (just for myself) because I randomly got all grungy with it. I guess I was imagining being in a stable or something and that took me on a tangent.

I love mossy forests and the green of Oregon. I almost want to go watch the Twilight sequel movie when it comes out because I know they film a lot of it in beautiful Washington and Oregon parks and the scenery will be pretty. Some days it just seems way too dry out here. But at least we have the ocean to go look at when it seems dry and you can't deny that much water in one place : )

I'll let it slide since Ryan is your "other half" and all, but you are a good photographer too! I like this floral metal contrast. I have tried to nurture lots of plants, but the only ones I can seem to keep alive are bamboo or succulents, because they don't need or like that much tending. When I went to Huntington Gardens I was blown away by the cactus gardens, so so cool. And the bamboo mini-forest, come to think of it. We should go there and wander and take photos on a nice day sometime.

aw, I definitely have a soft spot for redheaded little boys since my brother was one of them and there's a streak of gingers in my family (grandma, brother, cousins, etc.) I hate the saying "terrible twos" because to me some kids are at their most adorable from about 2-4 years old.

I like the curly hair, that would make a great rainbow wig. I bet it took a while to fill it all in. As for my PMC aspirations, I have tons of ideas but I'm not sure how to realize them using clay. I need to practice more with sculpting. I did make these charms in the class I took: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30347776

I like the hanging hexes - how do we get jobs doing window displays? It would always be something different, I think it would be fun!

I like your drawing, even if it doesn't have much meaning for you. Yes, with gilded/gilt I was thinking of things which are fancy but maybe only artificially so. I was reminded of when I was younger and created sets and props for children's theater and we took an cheap old chair that had been used as a million kinds of chairs in plays and covered it in purple lamé fabric, gold paint and giant plastic rhinestones to make it a "throne" for a magical queen or something like that... it's kind of fun to fake that stuff.
