Creative Tuesdays & Creative everyday at least trying.....




















Creative Tuesdays challenge of Thanks prompted me to think of the thank you letter, will children even write them anymore? With all the devices that we use all the time will actual written letters even exist?
Whimsy Wednesday as well, also back to work for me.

Feels like a really creative weekend, is there a question of quantity over quality?
Really trying to keep up with Creative every day challenge and a challenge it is!



 Spoonflower challenge for a tea towel calendar, what do you think?
It was a learning experience! but I do like the colors.

Your calendar towel is adorable
I like the colors
Your paintings are very sweet too they remind me of vintage little illustrations!

Betsy said...

I still make my kids write thank you notes. I do think it is a dying tradition, though. I love the sweet looks on the faces in your art. Beautiful!

Leah said...

Such beautiful soft paintings of these girls, they are really lovely. Love the flowers and colour of the calendar as well.

I love your illustrations and your post in general. I encourage my littel girl to write thank you letters as there is something so special about "snail" mail that I would hate it if it became a lost art. She enjoys it so much she has asked a few cousins to be pen pals, only problem is she likes recieving more than writing :-)

very nice.... I like how you've created the girls' hair.. it looks real! :)

Terrie said...

Even adults don't seem to write thank yous anymore! But your little girl drawing is just adorable....looks like an illustration for a poetry book.

Kristin Dudish said...

I agree with Heather - these look like vintage illustrations... Wonderful!

(I love the vibrant colors in your calendar!)

Beautiful work- the girl at her desk is so delicate, and the sprays of flowers on the calendar and the blue/orange colour is also so delicate and lovely.

Catharine, both of these are lovely, child like sweet and so needed a reminder for kids and all of us too actually. Great job. Love them. TY for doing these. I added the 2nd one to the montage.
