Happy Easter Weekend!

Here are some fun photos I took of Riley for my Easter cards! I took advantage of the new bunny collection I've got, and did a little photo shoot. For the cards, I added felt bunny ears onto his head. So cute! And here is one of the things I've been working on over the last few days. Pam, Lauren, Pam's friend Amy, and I are beginning a collaborative project. The theme is "motherhood"/ birds- two of my favorite subjects! We will each do a cover and two pages in a book (or another format of our choosing), then pass to the next person to do two pages. This is the cover of mine. The book isn't bound yet (not sure how I'm going to do that), but all the "pages" are this arch shape. I'm so excited about this project! I love Pam's and Lauren's work, and from what I've seen of Amy's (haven't seen much!), I love hers, too. We've decided that we'll post photos of the progress of the books, even though it will ruin a little of the surprise. This piece is larger than what I've been working on lately- probably about 12" tall. I liked this larger size! I think that maybe the small size of Riley's book may be limiting me, which might be part of the problem I've been having lately. Maybe I'll make the next book I do an in-between size.

I'm almost done with the next page of this collaborative book as well, so I'll post that when it's done as well. In the meantime, have a Happy Easter!
