Thoreau-inspired Winter Walks Holiday Cards

“Take long walks in stormy weather or through deep snows in the fields and woods, if you would keep your spirits up.” I realize that walking in cold temperatures and snow and ice are not what many people find a comforting thing to do, but I have always found the winter silence of the woods […]

Handmade Feline Gift Bags for the Holidays and Anytime

From the first time I received a gift bag with feline artwork on it, I could picture my art on a gift bag. I’ve tried a few different methods and finally found one that works well: printing my art to size on a commercial-grade label and buffing it permanently onto the bag. The art can […]
