Birthday Gift

This goes with the birthday card I just posted. This person loves to read, so I took a picture frame, covered the frame in old book sheets from an awesome old biology book I have, added some of my own art (also made from bits of another old english book), ribbon and crackle pain and voila! Instant gift. :3

Weenie Dog love

A little love for the weenie dog. <3

Birthday card

A simple birthday card I drew for a friend. ;) The top is the front and back of the card and the bottom was the inside.

Okay, the title is terrible, I know. But when you find something awesome to share, it doesn't really matter, right? That's how I see it anyway. And I've found several awesome blogs and treats to share. :D

First, it all started over at Dani Jone's website. That girl can draw! I've always been a fan of her awesome illustrations, but when I saw this post, I just fell in love. I mean, what can be better then art and food combined?

So, upon visiting They Draw and Cook, I found several awesome recipes I wanted to share (and visit again later!) with you guys. :)

Right off the bat, this one blew me away with it beautiful color.
And don't forget to visit her blog, too. Even more beautiful works found there.

Then there's this one that I adored. I love the scratchboard look. I've never ventured into that medium but after seeing this artist's gorgeous work, definately makes me want to try it out asap!

More scrolling thus lead to more beautiful combinations of both art and food.
Stained Glass Window Cookies by Gingerbred, whose art I particularly adored.
Chocolate dipped anything , whose blog held the most adorable creatures by the way.

So that by now, I'm not only starving to create something beautiful, but to eat it as well. LoL!

So finding these dishes didn't help any either.

Chocolate Strawberry Tart
Russian Tea Cakes (which should be a great tea party item when I finally have my Alice in Wonderland themed tea party)
Sweet Acorn Squash
Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwiches
Chocolate Potato
And...Well, I could do this all day. And the sad thing? I haven't even gotten past the December Holiday treats yet. :S So be sure to stop by their site and look your fill of all they have to offer. Now excuse me while I go attempt my own try at a tasty dish. :9
