Paying it Forward . . .

I'm very proud to be part of this amazing collaborative kit - a group effort of over 20 designers coming together for a cause and to give back a little bit in honor someone who has done so much for so many others. This kit is incredible! Over 300 elements and 75 papers!

I'm with the Band . . .

Kit description . . .
"What happens when 24 of the industries top designers come together?

Beautiful music is made.

We are paying it forward to help one of our own.

Bugs and Patty Anne Henderson are icons in the music industry when it comes to lending a helping hand to those that needed a little lift. Time and time again Bugs would don his guitar and play a set or two filled with music and love to lift the spirits and souls of those that needed it most for whatever reason. If someone was ill and needed help with medical bills, or a natural disaster hit and a community was devastated, Bugs, Patty Anne and their daughter Zoey, were there to share their love, hope and comfort with those in need. They gave freely of their time and talents to help raise money for some of the worthiest causes, no questions asked.

Last year Bugs was diagnosed with liver cancer, and on Friday, March 8th Bugs passed away. And just like Bugs and Patty Anne have done for all their lives, we would like to pay it forward and honor someone that has given so much to others.

Patty Anne has been a backbone to the digital community since day one. There is no one more dedicated to helping our community grow then her. She is generous, kind and supportive, in time, creativity and patronage. It is our privilege, at this time, to turn the tables and extend our hands to her. 100% of all proceeds from the sale of this kit will go directly to her and her daughter with all of our love.

"I'm With The Band" includes:

2 alphabets, over 75 papers and over 340 elements…that's over 1GB of amazing goodies!!!!!!!"

Here's a peek at some of the images from me that you'll find in this kit.

And here's a couple of samples I made using this amazing kit . . .

Happy Pi Day!

This post has really nothing to do with pi or pie, though I am craving pie. But, hey, if there's nothing else to celebrate, pi is as good as anything else to come up with!

But who doesn't have something to celebrate, perhaps with a slice of pie?! I have a couple of things to share . . .

I have a new kit in the shoppe . . . Head to Toe! This kit includes both printable jpg sheets and individual png images. (picture below is linked to the shoppe)

And, another little something to rejoice about . . . I got confirmation this last week that 5 of my pieces will be included in this new book by Martin Dawber, Modern Vintage Illustration due out in early September! The cover was created by French illustrator Julien Pacaud and the book's Foreward was written by UK 'design guru' Stephen Bayley. I'll be sharing more information as the release date nears!

Well, I'll keep it that short today. I have fish to fry, irons in the fire, dragons to slay . . . and pie to eat (I wish). Have a good rest of the week everyone!

Little things to do this weekend . . .

Hollie Haradon of Holliewood Studios has just released a spectacular collection of digital Art Journaling kits at There are 6 kits including 2 Alpha kits. All are on sale for a limited time! And I'm in love with them! (just one is shown below and linked to Hollie's shoppe)

Also at Deviant Scrap, you can find the new and FREE issue of The Deviant Muse zine! Just click the picture below and you'll be taken to the download place.

I wrote a brief article for The Deviant Muse about Patti Van Dorin's "scrapodex" and also started an interest gathering thread in the Deviant Scrap forum to see if anyone would like to start working on a similar project with me. The picture below is linked to the thread where I started a discussion. The article is in The Deviant Muse so I'll let you read that from your own download. The "scrapdox" offers a quick fun UN-intimidating approach to visual journaling that may allow me to sneak up on full blown journaling one of these days.
