299: Wild Turkey


Turkeys are so funny. I tried to find a video of their heads changing color, but didn't have any luck. It can happen in seconds apparently.

Also! Adopt a turkey this year from Farm Sanctuary for Thanksgiving!

Freebie: Halloween Cupcake Toppers!


Halloween is a'coming and I decided to put a little freebie up so you can spruce up those cupcakes you were planning on bringing to the party! There are three different designs that you can download and print yourself to decorate your cupcakes, cakes, savory goods, etc. Just download the template (right click-->save as, and then open up in Acrobat. The print quality is better printing from Acrobat versus your web browser for some reason.) Get some white card stock and print away! I just took some colored toothpicks and taped them on. Easy and adorable! 

If you end up using these, I would love to see! Share with me via instagram or twitter or just link in the comments below. Also, feel free to pin these (and please link it back to me)! 

***I hate to even mention this, but you know, internet. These are for personal use only, not for resale. Thank you!

291: Tasmanian Devil


So, turns out Looney Tunes totally falsely informed me about tasmanian devils and how CUTE they actually are. I mean, sure, they are super-ferocious and would probably bite my head off, but they're so cute. Cartoon Taz, not so much.

2014 Calendar!


My 2014 Calendar is here! I'm really, really excited about this years. I know I say that every year, but really! I think this one is my favorite thus far.  Getting a little fancy with the spiral-binding this year too! I created twelve brand-spanking new illustrations for this (and all these new prints are in the shop also.) You click the images below to view at a larger size. Which month is your favorite? I like January, April, May, and October best, I think...

275: Stingray


They say you should shuffle into waters that might have stingrays lurking, to send warning vibrations so you don't step on one. Good to know!

So, I was looking at the calendar and it seems that I somehow am "off" a day with this project. No clue where I messed up, but if I continued at this pace, I would only have 364 animals on the 365th day. Thus, we have two animals today (and they make a lovely pair!) I don't know where I skipped a day, but I'm just gonna call it a day and continue from here!
