Island Dreaming

I'm finally at my desk sorting through the newest collection of images AND getting everything entered into the shop. Today was about critters from the sea. Your local characters right off our Santa Barbara coast, the very playful and abundant Common Dolphin, the adorable harbor seal, the majestic Grey Whale and the dogs of the sea the California Sea Lion.

Our local Channel Islands is the theme of this collection. More soon....

New Items added to the shoppee daily!

We are heading fast into holiday season! Wow! I had a hard time typing that. I'm just not quite there yet and we've only just had our summer here in Santa Barbara. Alas, the year marches on and I am getting slowly to all the goodies I have to post in my Etsy shop.

First things first, I have a new shipment of ink pads, just arrived. I like the dye inks but the NEW Colorbox CHALK ink pads looked too good to pass up. As Colorbox states themselves, "these inks have the dense, matte luster of chalk pastels in a fast drying, archival ink!" AND they are waterproof if heat set.

They have coool colors, like Guacamole, Candied Yam and Lipstick Red. I ordered 16 of the 55 colors just to get started. Here are four of them {left to right, top to bottom} Prussian Blue, Pumpkin Spice, Sour Apple and Red Barn. The image is Vintage Camper No. 4 ... all available now in the SHOP.

Items will continue to pop up in the shop. Stop in and have a peek at what's new. Island stamps should be loaded by the end of this month.

May your slide into the fall be full of color, peace, joy and a healthy dose of laughter.

Someone is having a birthday tomorrow!

Beach Day, Molly ©2013
Molly turns 7 tomorrow! A good run on the beach to celebrate another year. We have now had Molly as long as her former owners. We hope that she is happy with her life with us as much as we adore her furry spirit in our atmosphere. Happy day you came to live with us Red. xo
