Though a departure from my usual cards being much smaller and not full bleed I am quite happy with them and more so knowing the customer loved them. I think these have more of 'hand-made' feel to them which I really like and I am thinking of switching over to a similar design for my whole card line...The backs are simple but effective I think...and I really like the fact that they are earth-friendly, printed with pigment ink (sorry I can't afford soy inks quite yet!!!) on a acid-free, 100% recycled Canadian made paper, which is mounted on hand-made recycled rag paper with a recycled white envelope...

And I could not resist this beautiful pillow. I love the retro colouring and I just don't get tired of looking at the design....

In the real world our Pink Jinny is actually a steely blueish grey and a rabbit who adores the snow. Jonathan made her a snow fort on the kitchen deck and after she's done digging and excavating any snow that has covered up the door ways of the fort she then hunkers down inside and sleeps in there until we have to force her out to come back inside!
I'll make more Pink Jinny Pendants in this exact concoction of beading until I run out of the beads, then I'll conjure up a different colour scheme. So each necklace is not only hand-made but they are one-of-a-kind of sorts since beading, bamboo tile colour etc will indeed change every few necklaces. I've been working on pencil boxes, plates and magnets also so I'll be able to show you those soon too.

This is an illustration which was suppose to accompany one of the pictures that made it into the book, but it again shows the land after tree cutting...the left behind branches etc will become mulch and encourage future growth etc.
So there you have it...my first book illustrated and now universe...send me a children's book to illustrate, ha ha...Thanks for having a look today, join me next week, probably Tuesday instead of Monday for new inspirations, aspirations, illustrations and creations from yours truly, Mandy Saile of Bijou's Whimsy.
