Back to some painting!

"The Easter Egg Tree"

After a long period of not doing any painting, I decided to jump back into painting to finally finish an idea I had about a year ago. LOL I just listed "The Easter Egg Tree" on Ebay. It was alot of fun to create and I love how painting always brings me to another place. I had forgotten how relaxing painting is for me! Of course, it's not easy to do with a 4 yr old running around so I was able to paint this piece while my son was at his school for the day. :)


Sometimes I run into really cool fabrics that I just feel the need to buy without a "plan". Alot of my designs started just that way. Either a fabric or even a song will get my mind thinking of what it reminds me of and what to create out of it. This catfish was thought up after I purchased this awesome square of cat themed fabric. To me, making a flat catfish with it seemed to fit the mold. :) He's definitely one funky lookin' fishy! LOL He was also just listed over on Ebay.

Well, looks like I'll be taking a long three day weekend from sewing and painting in order to hang out with my sons. It's their winter break week and we're due for a day or two out and about as cabin fever is taking hold. :) Have a great weekend!

till later!

New prims finished!!

Polkadotted Octopus

Whew! Spent a long day finishing up several critters and getting them listed on Ebay. It's always so nice to wrap up a few of the projects that have been "in the works" for a while. As soon as I finished these, though, my mind started swimmin' with new critters to design so it all starts again soon. LOL
A great friend of mine and a fellow primitive artist, Joyce, stated (jokingly) that I should create a tick doll so that our recent problems with ticks (yup, believe it or not during the WINTER!) would maybe go away. :) Well, I decided "what the heck, I'll do one" and he's now over on Ebay. :) Definitely something different in the prim world to say the least. LOL

till later!

On to St. Patrick's Day!!

To me, nothin' says St Patrick's Day like a happy Irish Froggy! LOL
Frederick McFroggy has just been listed over on Ebay. I always enjoy creating different versions of my frogs, although this sucker proved to be quite a stubborn critter along the way. :)
Now that he's listed.....I'm continuing to work on more St Patty's day critters and should have more up and running on Ebay by the week's end.

till later!
