Tweets and Finds

I joined Twitter, just because I kept hearing about it everywhere, and Facebook has been so much fun. I'm still learning it, for sure, but I have made a few cool discoveries:

Rupydetequila - her illustrations are adorable (and her English is even cuter!)

Pikaland - okay, not a new discovery, but I follow her. I have loved this blog for a long time. I like to end a computer work session by drooling over the highlighted illustrator of the day. Seriously good stuff.

Claudine Hellmuth - okay, not a discovery either, but you get to see the person behind the art when you read their tweets. I took an on-line class with Claudine, and during the live Q&A she was so open and generous with her knowledge and experience.

I'm still working out the whole how you find people thing, but I certainly have no trouble finding people on Etsy. Here are just a few favorites right now:


I ordered some prints from her last year for my father, and they were beautiful. Stunning, really.


How freakin' cute is that?????? I need one of those!

Knit Lust

For years now, I've been yearning to learn to knit, but have resisted. I really don't need yet another obsession, and I know yarns can be quite pricey. It seems, however, to be the perfect sit with the kids while they are trying to fall asleep activity, so I may have to give in. Until then, here are a few gems I am lusting over:

A magnificent shawl from Tickled Pink Knits

This newborn "elf" hat is just too cute! From Nelly Bean Company's ETSY shop

and this kit from Kallerin's ETSY shop (and she has some amazing felted scarves, too!)
