My Favorite Things ~ And a Giveaway!!!


Hello friends! I have been working on a set of prints that I am so excited to show you.

Sophia and I love to watch The Sound of Music, and we drive the rest of the family crazy as we sing the songs over and over. We were talking about how many of Maria's favorite things are our favorite things, so I started a-sketchin'. Here are the first 5 in the set of, I think 15 I am working on. The image is 8x10 with a white border.
My giveaway this weekend is the winner's choice of one of my new "My Favorite Things" prints.

The winner will have their choice of background colors, cream, tan or white.
The watermark will not appear on your print.

All you have to do to enter is place a comment on this post telling me one of your favorite things. Then on Tuesday the 15th, the Random Number Generator will choose a winner. They will also be available in my shop very soon.

Raindrops on Roses

Whiskers on Kittens
Bright Copper Kettles
Warm Woolen Mittens
Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with Strings


These are a few of my favorite things!!! (Yea, I'm singing it)

Here are the different background colors.

As I sit here singing, I am reminded of a multi-family camping trip we went on a few years ago(Woohoo, Detroit!) where I fashioned lederhosen out of plastic tablecloths and duct tape for the whole family. Why, you ask? We were the evening entertainment one night, so we composed and sang Sound of Music spoofs, complete with killer dance moves. What a show!!! We called ourselves The Voncrap Family Singers, but edited it to Voncamp.

My brother, Mindy-in-law, and Sophia.

Sorry to inflict our silliness upon you.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

ok, so I have decided that I can't visit this site anymore.....I get depressed because it isn't fair that you are so talented!! I am just glad to say that I know someone with so much talent. Oh, and thanks for the butt shot of me on the last photo. Even though my butt looks really big there I would KILL to have that butt again. I am thinking that I have what I like to call "bankles". That is where the butt and ankle merge into one big.....well, bankle!! Love you!

I love your Mindy-in-law! Cute Family pics, it makes me jealous and the like as well! You are all so cute!
One of my favorite things is warm summer nights by a campfire...night hikes too!

One of my favourite things is watching something I planted sprout up through the earth. That's pretty nifty.
I just found you on Etsy...cute stuff! And those puppets look wicked! I added you to the sidebar of my blog...I'm not sure many people read my blog, but at least *I* will now be updated on your new lovely creations :)

Ohhh...we need to go back to Lake Detroit, Oregon!! That was sooo much fun! I really love all your new creations, Star, and I've been singing Sound of Music songs ever since I looked at this week's post! :) One of my favorite things at this season of my life & still very new & exciting to me is...being pregnant and feeling our little one move around, it's really cool! I can't wait for our little Georgi girl to meet Auntie Star! Love, Mindy-in-law

You are one of my favorite things, Star! I always enjoy your sillyness - maybe cuz I just don't know how to be so silly and downright creative!

Ooh, I hope I'm not too late to post here for the giveaway! I also love your stuff. In fact, I'm paralyzed by indecision because there's so much of it I want. But I am poised to buy the pretty kitty print as soon as I decide which background I want.

I love the new favorite things pics as well. I think I may have to collect a few of these favorite things! Ok for the give away I am in love with Brown Paper Packages with a cream background but I also love raindrops on roses...oh so many decisions Star! Is this where I'm supposed to leave this? Lets go with Brown Paper Packages. You're truly an inspiration! You are SO Startistic!
