Happy New Year!

August 16, 2007

Well, not just yet. The Jewish new year, Rosh Hashana is on September 12th, less than a month from now, and I realized I need cards to send out to my customers. I’ve been thinking about this all day, and I realize I have to hurry, because if I want to have them printed written and mailed on time I better get going. I’ve set my eyes on some nice apple brads (apples go together with the new year here – they will make your year sweeter!), but I’m not sure yet how to combine them in a simple but memorable greeting.

Anyway, this isn’t what I was going to write about, I just wanted to share my beautiful collection of vintage greetings, which I just uploaded to Flickr. They’re all so naive and beautiful, and some just crack me up (the bride, the militaristic ones, and the ones with the dolls- what’s that got to do with the new year?). I think you’ll enjoy them, and you’re welcome to print and use them in your artwork, too.  Enjoy!


Scrap your booty

August 13, 2007

That’s the current eve challenge. To see my layout, you would have to step over to the eve blog. I don’t want to post it here, for various mysterious reasons. Anyhow, I do want to show you my very favorite detail of it, which doesn’t show well enough on the larger pic. I added a small Hamsa to the Lo, and I like it too much to let it get lost in the large picture! 🙂

I was a bit embarassed with this challenge, and I’m happy that I finally found “my way out” of the embarassment, and into another one of my hobbies – belly dance! The picture was taken at a friend’s bachelorette. I hadn’t planned to dance, but there was a professional belly dancer there, and she had a CD with music I know the choreography to, so there I was – doing a solo dance. Now come on, scrap your booty too!
