Birds on Grey

A newly finished print made by Liz - Birds on grey. Makes me think of the brightly colored birds we see outdoors on cold, dark, late fall days. (OK, maybe not the butterfly but the rest works :)

We've enjoyed a warmer than usual November. I love this delay of the winters cold air! Last Saturday I even saw a ladybug while raking leaves. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a warm Thanksgiving day. Nothing better than a big walk after I eat too much!

Thanksgiving Invite

Last night I painted our Thanksgiving invitation. We've hosted the big meal at our house the past 5 years. Antonio LOVES to cook (& I love that he does:) I'm really looking forward to the event this year. I've been gathering place setting ideas, planing the menu & can't want to spend the day with all the people I'm so GRATEFUL for! Hope you're looking forward to the holiday too!

Holiday Magic

Today I received this enticing holiday ad for Anthropologie. I have always loved their aesthetic & celebration of the uncommon. Once you're in their site if you scroll over each image a simple & charming illustration begins. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did. *Just to throw this out into the universe I would LOVE to have some of my art in their store- someday :)

Jill McDonald in the news

We had a two great features on some very nice blogs yesterday.

The first one was on trueup.net They did a feature on "What a world" my first fabric collection with P & B Textiles. The article shows a lot of pictures of the booth where the fabric collection was introduced at the Fall Quilt Market 2011.

The second was on child MODE. They did a very comprehensive review of the new Tada by Jill Mcdonald Etsy shop.

Thank you for featuring us!

Tada by: Jill McDonald

As you might noticed looking at the new blog layout. I'm the proud new owner of an Etsy store.
I came up with “Tada by Jill McDonald”

I’m very excited to present a collection of Canvas Growth charts, Wall cards and Posters. This line is drenched in color, has fun themes, a sense of humor & a touch of education.
This new step in my journey is a labor of love and represents 2 years of work to bring this products to the market. My goal with the Etsy store is to make art that kids & their parents will remember & love!

I hope you enjoy browsing through my Etsy store. And if you like, please tell your friends!

Also, as an introduction to my shop I'm offering your a 10% discount if they join our mailing list.
