Some art I made ages ago and never got around to posting. Boys and flowers 4ever. 

Oh my gosh boys with flowers is a tag that already exists. I didn’t even have to make it up. Amazing. 

More boys with flowers coming soon.

One birthstone and one poem for each month of the year! 

These are the traditional Gregorian birthstones, which means you can go on the wikipedia page and read fun poems about your birthstone!

"The February-born shall find

Sincerity and peace of mind,
Freedom from passion and from care,
If they an amethyst will wear.” 

Unfortunately, these won’t be available in my etsy shop until after new years (as I am leaving the state) but for now enjoy the poems and the hastily done but still very sparkly sapphire gif. Cheers and happy holidays!

made these three little buddies today. 4.25 x 4.25 with black elastic closure. Coptic stitch (opens flat), 5 signatures with 3 pages each. 

Made from scrap mats at the frame shop where I work. I am saving all the pretty ones. The red one is photographing a bit weird, but its a fabric mat.
