taking off again

We had a wonderful beach week filled with boogie board surfing, leisurely walks, and scrumptious meals. We are rushing around getting ready for our trip to Sweden. I have not been back home for two years and I am excited and eager to see my family and friends again. Next time you hear from me I'll be there...

beach bound

We are heading to Sandbridge beach for a week long family vacation. Can't wait for the slow going mornings, daily delicious feasts, and evening strolls by the waters edge. I am bringing a pile of books, fun games, and my camera... No blogging this upcoming week, but I'll return with photos and other impressions. 

I invite you to visit Sofia Barao's beautiful blog this week. She has initiated a wonderful series called creative ones, and this time I am the featured artist. There is a giveaway involved as well... 

Lastly i want to thank Leah of more ways to waste time for making my pillow part of her revamped living room. Leah has such great sense of style, and I am flattered that my creation now is part of her lovely home.

paper work

I printed these small card stock pieces a long time ago, always knowing that I wanted to present them in a three dimensional way somehow. I finally decided to mount them using small brass tacks on foam core. What amazes me the most about leaf printing is the variations you get from each impression, even when you use the same leaf for each print. I think it is really emphasized when grouped together this way.

We are getting ready for some exciting travels this summer. First a quick trip to the beach and then we are off to Sweden. I can't wait to see my family and friends again. I will keep up the blog throughout the summer, hopefully introducing you to some fun Scandinavian finds, but the inleaf shop as well as the etsy store will be closed while I am gone. So if there is anything you fancy, now would be a good time to buy...
