New Banner

I had a lot of fun creating a banner for Half Sweet Vanilla this morning. So much fun that I am going to challenge myself to create a new one every month. Such a great way to experiment with type and illustration techniques. Looking forward to May!

fog and rain

I love this illustration by Jay Fletcher and thought it that it perfectly reflects the weather we've been having for the past few days.

Cozy Cuppa Tea

I especially love the addition of the felt tags. I'm thinking  some "half sweet vanilla" cozies might have to be made. Inspired by Knit Storm via Etsy

I tried my hand at knitting before the holidays. I really loved it but never really managed to get further then making dish clothes of various lengths. I think I've now discovered another use for those longer, skinnier dishcloths. Mug cozies!

Flat Rock

It was a beautiful day for a hike to Flat Rock. Yes, that very distant, very flat rock in the top photo.
