Diane added some of her feathery friends. Just put a bird on it! There is a lot of really good entries this week. You can go here to see them all and vote on the ones you like. Enjoy the flurries!

Spoonflower contest without even begging anybody to vote for me! There was actually a lot of fun holiday entries (see the top ten here), but I wanted mine to be non-seasonal so that you can use them all year round. Because they are also designed to be applied and sewn to hand made quilts or garments, I didn't want them to be too flashy and take away from the actual masterpiece. Kind of like a signature or an ex-libris you put in a book. If you leave me a comment below, I will send you one of my fabric label. Cheers!

I discovered a fun little iPhone app through one of my online class. It's called Labelbox and it's a free app (of course you'll want to buy the extras label packs, fortunately they are only 99 cents each, I bought the "Going Postal" one and I am eyeing the Masking Washi Pack). Looks like it's compatible with the iPad and iPod Touch too. It's super easy to use. Here's another example of what you can do.
I took this picture in Port Townsend by the beach, thinking of my friend Martine's dream of having her little writer's studio in a Silver Bullet Airstream, which I think would be totally cool. I would love to have one too and convert it to a little traveling art studio/gallery. But that gives you an idea of what you can do with these labels, pretty fun, n'est-ce pas?
