I know this is old news by now... but I can't stop thinking about posting about it. So I'm just going to. Hoorah!
My birthday falls every in the middle of April, the middle of spring, the middle of flowers poking up from the barren earth and birds coming back and the smell of rain drifting in the breeze. I might be biased, but I think it is the very best time of the year to have a birthday and to celebrate life.

I have a little studio. It's actually not that little, but with all of my stuff ("art supplies") crammed in it, it feels kind small. And... I'm working on that. BUT. There are occasionally some scenes worth sharing...
My studio is basically purgatory for all of my 48valentine goods, before they find the heaven of an etsy shopper's home. Above is my very first etsy order- a book.
(This one isn't actually in my studio, but our living room. I just like it a lot.)
Here's to getting your hands dirty with art projects.

I've updated the 48valentine shop a bit. Here are some new things...
A dainty yet sturdy mug that's perfect for your coffee addiction.
A cute wittle kitty cat! Seriously hard to part with this cutie. But I am. For you. Can you feel the sacrifice?

A couple of (lot of) months ago I had the pleasure of taking photos of my expecting friends, Josh and Heather. They're so cute together and I had a blast, figuring out how to pose them and trying to frame the photos with bits of foliage. We decided to go to the Lamberton Conservatory in Highland Park, one of my favorite places (can you tell? It's featured in my banner, too :).

I love this video of Future of Forestry's lead singer Eric Owyoung talking about creativity and workmanship. It's comforting to know that even someone who seems established has to rework what they're producing and even change major components sometimes.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm preparing myself to go through the GAPS Intro Diet again. The Intro is so detailed and meticulous as far as what you can eat and is a tooooon of work. By ton of work, I mean I will be cooking for about 2 hours every day, which is about as much free time I have (not including the washing all the dishes, too!). That + work + online endeavors + husband cuddle times + spending time with friends and family makes for a very tired Jill.
So, as I prepare both my mental state and our freezer, I thought I'd share some tips I've collected to make this second round easier.
