Pink Fish in PBK catalog!

Last December, I was contacted by a client for a custom order for a Pink Fish Wall Decor... 5 months later, I see this ::

Page 31, Summer 2013 Pottery Barn Kids catalog- there are my fish!
They are just being used a a prop in the photo, but isn't this delightful? I didn't even know about this until another client mentioned it in an Etsy message (thanks, Suzy!) And I've since been in contact with the gal who bought the fish (who works along with the photography department) and she will make sure that any inquiries about the fish are directed to my shop. How sweet.

My Fish Collection will be available at the upcoming Crafty Wonderland show in Portland, Or! May 11th at the Oregon Convention Center. Hope to see you there!

Winter in Florida - Part Two

 Winter in Florida is about 75 to 80 degrees... kind of perfect.



 I started to think these critters were actually posing for me...






 ...mating butterflies... wow.

As I'm writing this, it's about 29 degrees back here in Portland, Or. *sigh* Oh well... having seasons is nice too.

Winter in Florida - Part One

 I've just returned from my holiday vacation in Florida, and it was wonderful! This was the first time I've ever been away from home for the holidays and, while I missed my family, I realized how much I needed to get out of town and relax for awhile.

 These photos were taken while Ben and I were kayaking along a waterway in Halpatiokee Park. Yes, that's an alligator there in the water. eek!

 This Pacific Northwest girl was in awe of the swampy surroundings- we could have been in a different country for all I knew... I've never seen anything like this before. So beautiful.

 This wood stork is flying away from us. He looked more like a pterodactyl than a bird to me.


 I was trying really hard to hold my camera steady to take this shot. Look at the size of that gator! {And in case you're wondering, this was not a tour or group kayak- this was just me & Ben. And alligators.}

 There are actually three turtles here... one is poking his head out of the water.

 Another wood stork... she's hard to see but she's right there in the middle of the frame.

So lovely.
More photos soon!
