Happy Pretty

We had a break in the weather here today, the morning haze gone and 70 degree sunny skies taking over. Spring in PA is showing off its emerging reds, and now quite suddenly whites, in the impressive decorative flowering trees around town. I just got back from an irresistible stroll. These white buds here are a close-up of these white trees, the red are buds on a bush we also had in the yard of my childhood home:

Yesterday's second Etsy new listing is a very limited run of this design on small moleskines:

Since the design is exactly the same length as the Moleskine, it's just too risky to make too many of them (messing up on a $$ Moleskine is so terribly frustrating), so there are just a few of these little ladies in existence.

Hey...I love the flower pictures. Pretty, pretty.

By the way, what is moleskin? And where do you get it?

Oh, sorry hon! "Moleskines" are the journals that I do my Gocco printing on:
I use the "Cahier" style, because they're a tan cover, but Moleskines are best known for their fancy black bound journals and sketchbooks.

Check out their website:
Its very pretty.

And an FYI for your beautiful artistic stylings--- look in the "Detour" section, you can submit your art! :)
