Happy Father's Day

I just posted a new card in time for Father's Day. Enjoy!




“Life is short and we
have never too much time for
gladdening the hearts of
those who are traveling
the dark journey with us.

Oh be swift to love,
make haste to be kind.
~ Henri-Frédéric Amiel


Hello and Hello!

It's finally summer. Yay! We are looking forward to some relaxing days ahead after a super busy Spring. I've been drawing and writing so much that was down to my last three pencil nubs. So I bought two dozen new pencils and now I'm back in business.

Ten years ago I started as place where folks could download free paper toys to make with their kids. I stopped counting after two hundred toys and seven million downloads. What I haven't stopped counting is how many days it's made me happy to make things and share them. (Which is all of them. :-)

Wishing you a creative week!

Best thoughts,

"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.


P.S. Last month I promised a small peek at my "SECRET" project. Can you guess what it is?




“A world in which there are monsters, and ghosts,

and things that want to steal your heart is a world in which there are angels,

and dreams and a world in which there is hope.” ~ Neil Gaiman
