I’ve been very busy lately and here is what I’ve been working on:

These cotton ribbons have been alot of fun to make, each holding little bits of my artwork and writing. Right now I have two ready to sell.
This one is really sweet for gifts or projects:
And this one, which would be great for valentines day or any occasion, like tied in a ponytail!

They are white, 1 inch wide, 100% cotton and cost $5.00/yard. Please email me, Tara, ( if you’d like to purchase either design and how many yards you'd like. I’ll send you an invoice via paypal or you can pay me personally if you are local. Just let me know!

Pound cake

My memaw was wonderful. She was mostly Indian. Which made her mostly strange. :) and all wonderful.
She made the very best pound cake. And that is not exaggerated. She might have added peyote. Just sayin.
I made this with her recipe to hang on my wall. I didn't realize how much it would remind me of her. Everyday.

my faith. smaller than a mustard seed. much smaller. more like a poppy seed. I created these pages for myself....

but before I scribbled the week's activities all over them I thought Id share the blank weekly planner with you.
you can download it, print it, then doodle all over it, fill in the agenda for the week, or paint it. or copic it. (yes, I used copic as a verb). Sometimes its nice to get a running start and just color.

I've been practicing hand lettering. I've been a student of typography and hand lettering since high school. I remember passing notes (pre texting) and when a friend passed me a note I'd spend hours attempting to copy their handwriting. I was really good at it and enjoyed studying others writing and letter formations so it's no surprise that when I want to zone out I practice lettering. here's a snapshot of my last journal page.
