Watercolor by mama
I am very “dreamy” these days. I have been flooded with ideas for what I want to do with the Buttercup Farm Goods Etsy shop. Lately I keep finding myself with either a camera, paintbrush or sketch pad in hand. I am going with it.

Postcard No. 1 - Camp Experience
My oldest has headed off to Summer camp for four weeks. I spent a few hours designing some postcards to send each day.

A few months ago I woke up in the morning and grabbed my sketch book. I dreamed about an angel flying over my home…watching over me. I have been so busy these last few weeks, I didn’t think about the dream again until this past weekend when I was thumbing through my sketchbook.
Here is a sneak peek into my dreams….

Last spring I learned how to make my own art stamps at Donna Downey’s Inspired Workshops. To my fellow creative souls…if you haven’t learned how to do this yet, take a class! Here is a link to one of my favorite on-line teachers Alisa Burke, who offers a class on Rubber Stamp making you can sign up for anytime. Although I haven’t taken this particular class of Alisa’s, I have taken others and they are TERRIFIC!
Once you learn the possibilities are endless. I am working on a big hand-made collage paper project for the ETSY shop. Here is how I used the “Man-Fish” stamp on one of my papers.
