Luckily, Primrose like cool weather! I just planted this and 3 others a couple weeks ago when it was warm. I figured they had a better chance outside than if I tried to keep them alive inside. So far so good even though we got a dusting of snow last night. We have tulips coming up(didn't know what to expect this spring since we moved in October) As soon as I have any other blooms I will share.
I think I had shared my Strawberry Bon Bon ornament before but I just made another so just in case, here it is!
This is a revised Christmas Tree Nougat ornament. The original was HUGE! This one is a much friendlier size for the average tree.
Still not done but getting there. The Madhatter still needs his hat finished but with taxes and donations to take care of, I had to put him on the back burner. Maybe now that all that has been accomplished we can get him finished!

Well, here it is! It only took me two days to mess around and come up with a new business card but that doesn't include the few days it took me to design the logo. Now, I did go to art school for design but I wanted to be an illustrator so I was really turned off of the idea of design. I love composition but I struggle with graphic design. After the past two days, I think a design degree would have been a very good degree to have! I am very happy with the result but I don't have the confidence that I have with, say, watercolors. Give me a pencil, pens and watercolors and I can go confidently in the direction of my dreams. Give me Photoshop and I trip myself up. I suppose that everyone has a learning curve on something but I find it frustrating when I can't create something on demand. Regardless! I am ecstatic with the finished card and can't wait to see it in hand. I decided to go with a two-sided card because I had so many websites to include and I just liked the look better. Now I can move on to redesign all my other graphics. At the rate it took me to finish the card, I should have it all done by Christmas! :o)
