a domestic life {06} +++ zine giveaway

a domestic life :: 06 :: cupcake

a domestic life 6.... the cutest cupcake brought to me by rori of paper monkey press . she just moved to the east coast. we're working on a new website for her. a more "grown-up" version of what they have now.

in this drawing i think it's funny how i changed the view. it's like i grew taller than i was when i took the photo. the perspective is off. my favorite part is the sprinkles. they were fun to paint.

onto news::

1. i have a piece up for auction tomorrow night. another great local arts organization - The Intersection for the Arts - is having their annual shin-dig. i donated a small cozied target. you can learn about the auction and even buy pieces NOW by going here

2. GIVE A WAY

mixtape zine cover

remember the cover of mixtape that i posted about a bit ago... well... i got copies and it's a great issue. instructions on how to crochet dish clothes, crafting with kids, a cute calendar, a feature on paper cut artist tina tarnoff, etc, etc, etc, [the list of contributors is too long for me to type here today - my fingers are not typing well today. so many slip ups!]

you can buy your own copy here and you can learn more about the zine here .

i have a couple of extras. so if you want one - comment. a winner [maybe winners] will be announced next Wed. the 17th....

and that's all she typed [since i'm spending 1/2 my time deleting my typos]. have a GREAT weekend

I love anything with bird imagery these days, which is funny because I'm a little afraid of birds in real life.

There are so many amazing items up for auction! I am a sucker for local food baskets. That's what I would get.

I've always heard great things about MixTape but at this point haven't committed the funds to get one. Maybe this would be a good teaser for me? :)

I haven't heard of this, but I like the cover.

Happy weekend!

I love the cupcake - watercolours are always a favourite - I think that the feeling of light (both brightness and weight) is just amazing with watercolours and this painting is no exception! And a great subject matter too!

When I was younger, I dreamed of a zine of my own. The fun kind that you just photocopy. (Because how fun is photocopying?!)

Keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

Your art is beautiful!
I've been meaning to check Mixtape out for a while so would be thrilled to win a copy.

I love how you painted the cupcake, the colours are perfect (this is such a lovely project). Hope you're well, happy weekend!

Here's to cupcakes that magic themselves taller and sprinkles that are fun to execute. I really like this series of photos and drawn interpretation.

I also like your mention of the typing process... deleting typos.

Hope your weekend lasts longer than mine... mine flew by at rapid rate. Sunday night? Already?
