I am not going to question it, but the weather has been non-stop beautiful since Friday! And it had just put me in such a great mood. This is one of the things we did over the weekend (you can see what a nice day it was too). Then we hung out at home, after a little shopping. And I put the finishing touches on the new exhibition (which just went up this morning).

One of many new shops in this totally new exhibition is Lil3birdy, which is run by artist Clare Shields. Her work is really fun and sort of captures the spirit of our weekend, so I wanted to share a few of my favorites from her Etsy shop with you to round out the day…Love the way she plays with repetition…

1. (above) owls notebook

2. insects and bugs postcards (love, love, love these)

3. patterns and birds gift tags

For more from Lil3birdy, visit Clare’s shop on Etsy.

I’ll be back bright and early tomorrow morning to share Tiffany’s part II article on pricing. The last one was super juicy (over 250 shares combined on Facebook + Twitter), so be sure to pop in tomorrow to read her second installment.

One of my favorite resources for books is a site called Book by its Cover, which is how I found out about this book, which I am now of course dying to get my hands on. But looking at books online will just never be the same as actually holding it in your hands and turning the pages (can you tell theat I am not a big fan of the Kindles?). Case and point…Last weekend, Jeff and I went to a BIG book sale and snagged about 30 hardcover books for $10! We wound up with a little bit of everything (mostly old art and design books, a couple on color theory, and a craft book or two) and probably picked up some books that we never would have thought to buy before, but when someone tells you that you can shove as many books into a brown paper bag as possible for $10, you accept the challenge. Right?

 

I spent a good amount of time scouring the art section and then meandered around looking for cool covers. Here’s a couple that I found above. I know they aren’t the greatest pictures, but I guess I can’t expect much from a camera phone. Have a cool pattern to share from one of your books? Leave the link in the comments. I would love to check em out.
