I need to feel like spring!

I didn't realize how much this cold was getting to me. I really need to smell the roses. I just somewhat finished this artwork. I am sure I will tweak it and maybe change the quote but my hand and arm hurt and I feel all sniffly... I HATE COLDS!
Anyhow, the hardest part was the  hair. Usually I don't have too much trouble with hair, but I just couldn't get it right at first. I also couldn't decide whether to have her looking at the butterfly or looking straight out. I hope you like it. Let me know....

What to do with an old textbook...

I was in the Neelin library the other day and they were discarding books so OF COURSE I had to take some. This book was originally in the Harrison library. It was first signed out in 1974, 5 years before I graduated! This is what I have done in the pages of it. Hope you like it. I haven't finished it yet, but I'm tired and I have a sore throat (booo). Watch for the finished piece which I will publish in the next little while.

I forgot to tell you about my calendar!

I can't believe I haven't mentioned it! This took me so long to compile and it was so costly, but in the end, I am very proud of it. Visit my calendar page on my website to see all of the interior pages. I call it my happy thoughts calendar as these are all very nice messages. I don't know about you, but I am kinda sick of the usual scenes and animals you get from the bank. Let me know what you think. I can start the calendar on any month, so even if you order late (hint! hint!) you can still get your year's worth.

What Shall I do today?

Well is my last holiday day. I like the fact that spring is on the way. This picture just makes me feel like spring. Can't wait for those tulips!
 I feel ready to go back to school but I really want to savour this. I am going to start with a long hot bath. Then I think I will spend the day drawing, or maybe painting. I have so many drawings, so I guess I should maybe finish one. Then I will have the basis for another art-plaque.
Did anyone see the button mirrors we made this year. They are so cute and we sold tons! My 14 year old daughter has been making them for me and she was VERY excited to buy herself the latest Blackberry. It really is cool...hmmm... don't I need my phone replaced???? Well, maybe I can wait awhile longer.


Happy New Year, everyone. It has been a year filled with ups and downs, hasn't it? Our show season is behind us and we are all breathing an extra long sign of relief. I feel different somehow --- better? I have been madly working on my website during the Christmas break from school. I decided it was time for my little angel to go and I have replaced her with another angelic pic. This "gratitude" artwork was one of my better selling artworks this year.Check out a bigger copy on my website. This last couple of weeks I have been working on new pieces for 2011. Let me know what you think. I have also been doing lots of email marketing to drive more customers to my site to see this new stuff. Any suggestions out there?
