This week's playlist was the hardest to consolidate yet! It's a mix of some of my favorite mellow & acoustic tracks - listen below:
* NEWPORT FOLK FEST 2017 *
After brainstorming ways to share more about myself and my work, I'm starting a new series of playlists today! Music has always been a big part of my life and I thought sharing what I'm listening to while I work in my studio would be a way to offer some insight into my process.
This week's theme is Newport Folk Fest since I'll be heading there tomorrow. It's a mix of tracks by Jim James, Carl Broemel & Fleet Foxes - 3 of my favorite artists in this year's lineup. Hope you enjoy!
We had so much fun at our pop up shop with Hills & Trails Co. at Maine Craft Distilling in Portland, Maine last night!
Kanya of Hills & Trails designed the menu with illustrations from my farm coloring book -
I can personally attest to the tastiness of both the Flight of the Blueberries & Wild Rhubarb Pie.
Thanks so much to everyone who came by to see us and to Maine Craft Distilling for hosting!

Super psyched to release my latest project and collaboration with my husband Kyle: pollinator-friendly seed bombs! Each container comes with 20 seed bombs in a USA-made tin:
Being a horticulturist, Kyle formulated and created two mixes of seed bombs - one for bees and one for monarchs. I hand-lettered and illustrated our logo and packaging:
You can find more info and both mixes for sale here on our website: seedsforpollinators.com!
Been busy working away in my studio this month on a couple of new things - first off, a new & improved online store! While I'll still have a few products available on Etsy, this new site will be more consistently stocked and easier to navigate. Check it out here: shophannahrosengren.com
After participating in the Women's March in Boston last month, I've been so eager to create new work to respond to current events. So, here are three bumper sticker designs that I hand-lettered, all printed on weather-resistant vinyl in the USA:

Super psyched to be the January 2017 artist for Camp Daze Press - a monthly artist series run by local printmaking studio Hills & Trails!
Since $1 of each print sold goes to a Maine nonprofit of the artist's choice, I decided to design a monarch mandala with proceeds going to the Portland Pollinator Partnership. I used brushed ink for the original monarch & milkweed line work - which you can see a short hyperlapsed video of here on my instagram.
Some process photos of screen printing in their studio:

We had so much fun at the Picnic Holiday Sale in Portland yesterday! Thanks so much to everyone who came by - it's always great to see old friends and meet new people who share a passion for supporting small businesses and independent makers.
After sending out the last of the guaranteed-delivery-by-Christmas Etsy orders this Friday, I'll be closing my shop for a short holiday break and working on a new design as part of an awesome local project run by Hills & Trails. Stay tuned!
