My birdies flew all the way to Germany!
If you live there you can purchase these two books illustrated by me.
Published by Verlag am Eschbach:
Fange nie an aufzuhören, höre nie auf anzufangen & Ins Herz buchstabiert.
Both covers were made with my hand carved stamp designs.
Two more books will come out for their autumn/winter 2011 collection.
One is an anthology of poems about the joys of sending and receiving letters that will feature 20 of my bird collages with vintage postcards and ephemera & the other one
called "Soul Medicine" about all those little things in life that make us happy
by Christa Spilling-Nöker :)

Old Treasures

Old Treasures
I'm back home with so many beautiful memories of my trip to visit my mom & brother! These are a few of the invaluable things I brought back from Chile.
The Loot
My mom and I had so much fun going through all the old letters she has been keeping for years. I brought back some of my favorites, old family records, photos and a few really beautiful antiques my mom wanted me to have like an old ostrich egg, a few pieces of silver my mom's had for ever & the wood box to keep all the treasures.
Vintage ink pen nibs
This is a beautiful box full of ink pen nibs I found at an antiques shop in Santiago.
It was still sealed and in perfect condition. Perfect for my white acrylic ink.

The pearl of the Pacific, the most beautiful port city in the world.
I made a new furry friend. Her name is Sofia.
She was wearing a pearl necklace & a faux fur lined sweater :)
I think Turbo would like her ♥
Enjoying autumn, even if it's for just a few days.
The end of the day
Yesterday's sunset didn't disappoint.

Today is the Day

My bags are packed
Someone's not too happy...
Fly away
My bags are packed & a certain someone is not too happy about it.
My plane leaves tonight...
*Hint: I'm going on this trip for pleasure, not work. I'm visiting family :)

I'm leaving on a jet plane...

I'm going on a solo trip for the first time
since my teen boys were born and I'm so excited!
I'll only be gone for a week but I'll continue to blog
from my undisclosed location by the sea...
We can play 'Where in the World is Geninne?' ;)
