I decided to join in on the ohh deer competition to create a papergang subscription box, using a design theme that I’d already created to sell at Building Character & the Washington Boro Creative Bazaar. I know it’s a long shot- but I’m pretty happy with the outcome! There’s some beautiful designs on instagram, you can see everyone’s entries if you search #designapapergangbox

I know I’m a little slow on the up-take sometimes, but .gifs, man! They’re fun to make.
After several years I am back on Etsy, selling (as of now) digital paper packs & digital art downloads. I am planning to add physical prints, photocollaged cards, and possibly some hand-crocheted items. I plan to do a big push in 2015 to add items to the store, so keep checking back for new stuffs like these:

Something I’ve always been fascinated by is old photos in vintage cookbooks that show beautifully plated & presented foods that look completely not delicious to eat. Ambrosia salads, mayonnaise salad globs on leaves of iceberg lettuce, meatloaves shaped like snowmen with mashed potato snow & olive slices for eyes….that kind of thing. The food looks so bright, almost plasticine, and is sculpturally perfect, yet is incredibly unappetizing. I love the dichotomy! Also, I love the color choices, bright red punch sits on a pea-green countertop with curly orange rinds for garnish, or a blobby pink ham salad nestles in a sun-yellow bowl on a red-checked tablecloth. So bright! So pretty! So gross!
