Holiday Craft Time~!

I have to admit, I've always opted to buy gifts over making gifts for people; but when I stumbled upon these soft trees on littlebirds by stephanie congdon barnes, the martha stewart in me started kicking. I invited my collaboration partner Krystle Cho to spend an evening of crafts with me and it was really nice to use my hands and chat with a good friend.

Joined through a photo blogging project 3191, stephanie of littlebirds is also associated with mav of port2port press, whose work inspired me to meet with my good friend and designer colleague, Debbie Kim, and design x-mas cards for our friends & family. We chose wood-block printing as our medium and had tons-o'-fun picking out paper and ink at Blick Art Materials in Berkeley. It's pretty much a haven for alls yous artists. Plus the staff is super helpful and knowledgable.

Pics of both nights of crafts below. Happy holidays to all who happen to view this; comment and let me know you were here!
