Let pretend…for 5 minutes.

We got together with these beautiful young people yesterday to pretend for five minutes that they are still our babies. We have not got it right every year but we do sometimes try to do a cookie decorating party so yesterday we did just that. It makes you feel nostalgic for simpler days. They actually…

The TealFeather Studio has docked

So last Monday the box arrived. I was all excited and then I did a crash and burn. I put too much stock in weird shit sometimes. I have wanted this thing for so long and finally spent more than I did on my first car to find I was paralysed with fear and claiming…

OK, So I lied…

So we completely lied to you and the whole family. We had planned to bring the boy home months ago to surprise everyone. We fooled them completely. Nana was even a little mad when I told her that he would not be coming. We set it up so that he hid upstairs and once everyone…

Happy New Year

19 years and counting

I have been all consumed in creating some designs this weekend for different products. Yesterday many ideas went nowhere but today I felt like I gained some headway. I love experimenting¬†with photoshop and illustrator using layers to create interesting effects like the one above. I have a few ideas to try out on products. This…
