Lily's 1st Birtday♥

It started with a circus tent from IKEA.  And then Lily's birthday gifts had a theme....













I see many more circus friends showing up for Christmas!

New items listed in Keeping Notes Studio Shop

I finished two new pieces for the shop.  This pillow was inspired by a page in the Anthropologie Catalog.  I love this store, their art direction in their store windows and catalog pages is truly something to admire.....
 
 
 
The pillow was hand drawn, then embroidered and fabric sewn in to fill in the rest of the picture: the steps and the walls.

 
The back and front frame is a heavier cotton canvas.
 

 
 
 
And another needle felted river stone mat.
 


 
And finally, I am working on Lily's first birthday presents.  So far only the circus elephant is done.
 
 
More pictures of the circus birthday presents to come.
