Bonjour! Quilt

I picked up my quilt from my grandmother.  She is used my Bonjour! fabric.  I absolutely love this! It is one of the most special things I own.  I have to put the filling and the backing on it but it is almost finished.

Home for the Holidays & Society6

I am starting to get into the Christmas spirit.  Can you tell?  I thought it would be fun to offer a few holidays prints on Society6. These are from my Home for the Holidays Collection with GCD.

I like the idea of seasonal prints to hang around the tree.  What do you think?
I hope this helps you get into the spirit of the holidays!

FAM: Fatto a Mano

I have arrived in Ohio and I must say it is good to be back.  I am really excited about celebrating Thanksgiving in my home state-my favorite holiday!  I am also very excited to be in Seattle in 2 weeks!  And, I will be participating in a show that I use to sell in before I left for Hungary!

For 3 years in a row I participated in FAM: Fatto a Mano (Italian for Made by Hand).  When I found out I was going to be in Seattle I contacted Roberta, the organizer, and asked if I could join the group for this years show.  She was excited to have me back.

Come join me and the FAM artists for an afternoon where gift and art come together! And check out our blog to learn about the other talented artists that will be at the show!

I will be selling greeting cards, notebooks, calendars, scrapbooking papers and fat quarter fabric swatches!

18 hours

Tomorrow I begin an 18 hour journey to the USA.  It is going to be a crazy ride while I am there!  My "US Tour" begins in my hometown in Ohio.  I get to meet my beautiful niece for the first time and spend Thanksgiving with family!  Then I am off to Seattle for a whole month!  I haven't been back to Seattle since we left in 2008!  I am so excited to see how the city has changed and visit my old stomping grounds.  Then off to DC where I will be able to spend evenings and weekends with my hubby while he trains for a new job.  In the middle of all this, I will go to California for the CHA tradeshow where a few more collections will be launched with GCD Studio.  I am exhausted just thinking about all this!  Gotta finish packing!

As promised, a new print for Society6!

hot wine + Normafa = very nice day

This autumn has been the most beautiful I have ever seen in Budapest.  A day at Normafa was in order. A nice walk with a good friend and a bit of hot wine...a perfect Sunday!

sunday @ Society6

I don't ever blog on Sunday but since today is the last day for FREE shipping worldwide at Society6 - I thought I would give you a few more prints to choose from!
The blue and green colors in these prints all match - so you can buy 2 or 3 and hang them together!
Thanks to all of you that have placed orders this week!  It has been fun seeing what prints are the most popular.

brush in hand

This weeks was hard to paint as I really wasn't in the mood.  I pushed through it - even if only for a little bit.

color boards

A few color studies to add to my book.  It is always nice to get away form the computer and tear through magazines - for me, it helps fuel my creativity. 
Here are past posts with other color boards:  here and here.
