Newport and the Oregon Coast Aquarium

For my birthday CJ and camped overnight at the South Beach State Park in Newport.  We also visited the Oregon Coast Aquarium, where we had a great time looking at all of the cute aquatic creatures.  On our way back to Forest Grove we stopped by the Devil's Punchbowl, where we were lucky enough to see a whale surface.

Woodland Paper Dolls

I've been working on a set of Woodland Paper Dolls that are Scandinavian-themed, and I recently got them back from the printers.  This is an extended play set that includes a forest backdrop, three outfits, a bear, fox, owl, raccoon, squirrel, beaver, skunk, field mouse, Cardinal, Blue Jay, rabbit, and a Gnome, who has his own little change of clothes! I am very happy with the high quality print results (I use Moo to print my printed goods), and am excited to announce that they are for sale in the shop here.
