Tea anyone? I've reached a new level of environmental dorkiness. I love tea and I love having the string and tag to play with while I drink it. Loose tea tastes better but you don't get the attached toy so I thought I'd remedy that. I made a few of these and they only took about 2 minutes to sew even though I'm not very good at sewing. Now I have the best of both worlds- loose tea AND a tea bag. I'm easy to please.

Winter Color

Just planted a few of these by the mailbox yesterday. I LOVE this color and I really hope they survive and keep blooming. Not a bad pic considering I took it with my phone.

My New Sketchbook

I found about a half yard of this material in the scrap bin at JoAnn for around $3 and decided to turn it into a sketchbook. The back side of the material was white so I painted it with brown ink and now it looks very leathery. When closed it's about 6" x 8" and is filled with 90 lb watercolor paper.

Brush Lettering Postcards

I'm new to brush lettering but I love it. These are some postcards for an online swap for November.

Piper's New Sketchbook

Piper and I have been working on some new sketchbooks and this is hers. The cover is a watercolor painting she did and we bound it with watercolor paper and plain copy paper. She loves it!
