Happy Friday everyone! Do you have much planned for your Friday night? I'm having a nice quiet one with Marty - it's freezing and wet outside so were are getting comfy on the couch with some movies and a nice curry for dinner! This little lady (above) is called Lucy. I created her for the monthly illustration challenge over at our group blog, 'We Love To Illustrate'. The theme this month is 'picnic'. We would LOVE for you to join in the fun and get creative with an illustration or crafty thing of your own on the subject of 'picnic'. Please head on over to 'We Love To Illustrate' to check out the details and join in the fun!

envelope project

Morning all! I just found out about a fun little project happening over at Meet Me At Mikes - the Envelope Project. It works like this:

* Send a decorated envelope to Meet Me At Mikes with a few cute little papery or crafty things inside it. Be sure to add your address on the back.
* Your envelope will be displayed in the Meet Me At Mikes shopfront window. They will take all the things out of your envelope and take a photo of what they receive each day.  They will upload that daily image to Flickr.  They will keep the project going for six weeks.
* At the end of that period they will draw one random envelope : and send that person ALL THE THINGS they received in the mail!  Every single thing.

Yay how much fun! I stuffed my envelope with a selection of my Little Beehive greeting cards :)
If you'd like to take part in this super fun project, head on over here and get the details.

P.S. One of the illustrators whom I admire very much, Ingela.P Arrhenius, has joined in the fun all the way from Sweden! You can read her blog post about it here.
