An excuse to be festive...

Jo Packham, yet again, gave us an excuse to be festive!

We just wrapped a photo shoot for her new book, "Celebrations", set to be published by Lark in 2011.

I was lucky enough to have a wonderful group of gal pals who didn't mind the camera capturing the spirit of the gathering...

A big thanks to the wonderful gals who helped out, supermodels all of them!

Thanks to each and every one of you party girls who made this possible:
Kerry D.
Jamie M.
Jane G. - the Birthday Girl
Lillian A.
Diana Card...
Julie D.
Lisa G.
Kathy H.

And a BIG thanks to Kathy N.-- who helped to style the shoot and prep the food and my cousin, Laurie B. who helped direct the shoot...

You are all fabulous party girls...and I loved sharing the afternoon with you...and the excuse to dress up and celebrate the magic we can find in the everyday...

Can you blame me?

Can you all tell I am smitten with Krys Kirkpatrick and her designs? Can you blame me?

Krys is uber talented and her spirit is among the most bright I have experienced. She is grounded, thoughtful, and totally dedicated to making art that can get into the hearts and homes of those that encounter it. On top of that, she is an adventuresome soul.

She works in ink and watercolor and visits whimsical scenes with a childlike curiosity for the way the world seems when you believe in magic.

Original watercolors can be hosted on board, in wee frames made from recycled cardboard or on newspaper encrusted wood frames.

The are delightful and dare I say irresistible when they start at $22.
These folks in Atlanta felt the same way!

Perfect to give or keep at that price...more can be seen on her her for the link...and email me at if you'd like to be on the notification list for new creations as they arrive from her studio.

Many thanks Krys for sharing all that you are with Earth Angels friends and are a treasure and I am thrilled that we have rekindled our business relationship and friendship.

You can meet Krys at the "heART of winter" - WEST in Tustin, CA at "The Paula Shop" where she will be among the featured artists. Catch her Friday, December 3 & Saturday, December 4...details are on our site's events page.

So, Can you all tell I am smitten? Can you blame me?
