Sinister and Sweet

"Sinister Bird"...the cutest one I've seen!
(6 x 6 inches)
from Katherine, Scootin' Annie

Katherine and I were swap-buddies for the Teeny Tiny Mini Quilt Swap. When she saw this tag on my blog...

...inspiration kicked in and "sinister" became our theme--a great one for October. It was a fun swap...thanks Katherine!

This is the teeny-tiny-sinister-mini that I made for her.
(6 x 6 inches)


So, now, how 'bout some S W E E T !

These beautiful tags are from Karin, Creative Chaos.

Aren't they gorgeous?! And Karin! I just adore them...thanks so very much!!


Most of my time in the ol' craft room this past week was spent working on my issue for I Heart Zines 2009. It's a first for me--fun and a bit of a challenge.
But, Alma Stoller, the swap hostess (and another sweet and talented artist) provided a really helpful tutorial. I've mostly worked on getting my thoughts and ideas organized--ones that I'd noted and/or sketched over the past few months (an interesting variety of scrap paper, napkins, deposit slips, etc.)--but I've been able to create some of my pages too. I'll share more on my progress later:)

You participate in such interesting swaps! I love the mini that you made - the houses and that polka-dotted tree - just fabulous.

I just love the mini quilt you made too. It is so nice and those little houses are so cool. Looks like you are keeping very busy.

I've swapped with Karin before, she makes such nice things. Very sweet, indeed!

You got some cute stuff! And that zine thing looks very interesting...I will have to look into that further. Can't wait to see what you go, I've been loving all your journal pages!
