Ohh deer! (oh dear)

Things I'm Doing, Uncategorized

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

Etsy Store Re-Opening!

Things I'm Doing

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:

Beautiful Gross 50’s & 60’s Food Images

Beautiful Things

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!

A few samples for you:
