Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Below is the video I mentioned in my last post — it's "17 Things I Made" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. You might know her as the author of The Little Pea. I'm a little late — I'm just figuring out who she is and what I've been missing. Maybe someone who's better with words and deciphering emotions can tell me why I cried while watching the second video. Be sure to watch both.

Thanks to Snow White and Rose Red for clearing up the mystery and for mentioning the teary eyes.

Bedroom Wall

Originally uploaded by Green Kitchen.
I've been busy sewing curtains for our little cabin in the woods. I'm gathering up a bunch of photos from my sister to do a WIP post about it soon. This photo is of our current bedroom wall. It's a typical example of how I don't finish projects around the house. Hopefully this won't be true up at the cabin. This wall has been like this for several months. Seems like it will be awhile before I get everything framed. I have a couple other pieces I'd like to add. Click on the photo to get to flickr where I've added notes on all the pieces.

Ulla and many others (I'm too tired to look up URLs right now, so if you have a dollhouse post, leave a comment with a link so we can go visiting.) have been posting about dollhouses in the last couple months, which got me thinking about these paintings I did for my mom's dollhouse many years ago. If I remember correctly, the top three are copies of some vintage prints we had around the house. If anyone knows who the artists are I'll give credit where credit is due. I think I used gouache. The tiny frames came from a miniature store, some are wood and some are metal. These are the actual size of the paintings. See my Flickr for enlarged (or, enhugened, as Blaize would say) versions of these tiny paintings.

Illustration Friday - Song

4 Calling Birds
Originally uploaded by Green Kitchen.
Part of the 12 Days of Christmas series I did last year. I thought I'd ease into Illustration Friday by using something existing, luckily I had something that matched the topic. I'm still not sure about if you are supposed to wait till Friday to post -- seems that over 400 people have already posted since Saturday.

This is a small painting, about 2 x 3.5 inches, inspired by Susie Ghahremani's mini paintings. Susie's blog, see/hear, has an interesting topic going on right now about the ethics of getting someone's art as a tattoo without their permission.
