Commissioned Project and a New Pen!

A friend of mine recently commissioned me to create some Baby Shower invitations.  She's always been a huge fan of my little square owls, so we decided they'd be perfect for the job.  I finished them up and sent them on their way today.  I have to say, it was a fun little project and I learned a few things along the way.  I am thinking I need to do more of these projects.  :)

ready to go.

I also finally purchased myself a nice drawing pen.  I've had a chance to play with it a bit, the lines are much smoother and the ink cooperates a bit better than the other pens I've used.  Now I need to go back and buy more, in various sizes.  FUN!!!

playing with more doodles and zentangles.

I finally finished Jane Austen, she's now hanging in my house, along with Poe and Agatha Christie.  Still have some more to finish.

I was invited to participate in a 1 photo a day for 365 days, project.
I have to say, as much as I enjoy taking photos, it is hard to do it every single day and feel creative with it.  These are a few pics I've taken so far.

That's all for now!  Have a Happy and Beautiful Valentines Day!


  1. You've been so busy! LOVE your invitations, they made me giggle, SO cute! The pen seems to be working great but it's probably the artist ;) AND your boys are adorable. I have two boys not as old as your but they are amazing and fun the older they get!! Awesome photos too. Thanks for sharing xoxo

  2. The invitations are great, what a nice project. The drawings are amazing as always and the photos too. I love the one with the leaves, what beautiful color.

  3. Happy Valentine's Day my friend ;o) I love your art soooooooooooooooooooooooo much!! You are so creative!! I love every piece you do!! And, your photos so far are fantastic!! I truly mean that! You have a way of capturing things!! Big Hugs ;o)

  4. Awe, those cute boys!! I LOVE those pictures - love the blue bird - and your invitations are so cute! I'm a fan of the square owl too - and your girl! And in pen! wow . . . xoxoxo

  5. Yep, I'm a fan of the square baby owl. Very nice invitations. And best of luck with your photo-a-day project; my wife tried that a few years ago and had trouble finding new subject matter, especially late in the year on days trapped inside by the cold. But I think you'll come through just fine.

  6. Such cute invites! Those turned out adorably :)

    What kind of pen did you buy? I'm always wondering what other artists are using. I've tried a few different kinds, but haven't found "The One"....haha!

    Love to see you keeping creative, Dear Heather!
