Summer Lovin'

I needed to whip up some thank-you cards for my wonderful grandparents and aunts, so I made these little strawberry cards, based off of one I made for Navil the other day. I miss you Navil!

The strawberries are actually from Martha Stewart's scrapbook collection, but they'd be pretty easy to make. I'm thinking I should make some little felt birds or fruits to keep handy for when I need to make a card.

We have a ton of ripe lemons on our tree, so I decided to make some fresh-squeezed lemonade. I got a little carried away, of course, and had to make it look all cute.

I gave this to Ryan. The bottle is recycled from Trader Joe's TeJava (I think it's called) bottled iced tea. I love their tea! It's so good and pretty reasonable. The bottle is really nice too, so I'm glad I was finally able to do something with it.

Made a little label out of fabric and a felt lemon that I stitched.

Here is the portrait that Ivan painted! I love it so much. Someone said it looks like one of those paintings in the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and I agree. It's kinda creepy...I love the huge bow and the wallpaper..and especially Tubby, because I can just hear him purring in this painting. Well done, Ivan! You can view more of his work here:
