Happy Mail

A very happy day to you!!

A couple of blog days ago, I checked a fellow artist's blog, to see what she was up to and found that she had some new...very lovely items for sale in her Etsy shop.  So I popped on over to check them out and ordered myself a couple of goodies.  Happy Mail came and here is what I received....

I ordered a necklace and earrings.  She also sent me an awesome card with a mermaid on it, and a gorgeous stick with a unicorn.  

this has always been one of my favorite pics by Cam and now I get to wear it.  :)

I really, really needed some new earrings.  I couldn't resist!

It's nice to have such amazing art friends!  :)
Have a lovely week!

Commissioned Project and a New Pen!

A friend of mine recently commissioned me to create some Baby Shower invitations.  She's always been a huge fan of my little square owls, so we decided they'd be perfect for the job.  I finished them up and sent them on their way today.  I have to say, it was a fun little project and I learned a few things along the way.  I am thinking I need to do more of these projects.  :)

ready to go.

I also finally purchased myself a nice drawing pen.  I've had a chance to play with it a bit, the lines are much smoother and the ink cooperates a bit better than the other pens I've used.  Now I need to go back and buy more, in various sizes.  FUN!!!

playing with more doodles and zentangles.

I finally finished Jane Austen, she's now hanging in my house, along with Poe and Agatha Christie.  Still have some more to finish.

I was invited to participate in a 1 photo a day for 365 days, project.
I have to say, as much as I enjoy taking photos, it is hard to do it every single day and feel creative with it.  These are a few pics I've taken so far.

That's all for now!  Have a Happy and Beautiful Valentines Day!

New Sketchbook!

Finally purchased a new sketchbook.  It's much smaller than my usual sketchpads.
But I feel that I need to spend more time drawing/sketching/doodling, basically practicing art.  
What have you been working on?


what's on your mind?
