wild foxy darlings . . .

It's been a 'wall to wall' kind of couple of weeks. Almost impossible to squeeze any kind of personal work in... but I managed! It  keeps me sane... working on personal pieces:). Things will calm down in October. Already, girls are settled into their school routines and peace has returned to the casa (at least until 4pm). I'm going to look at the bright side and plow ahead.

summer's end . . .

The summer, that has been rainy and cold has ended abruptly... leaving me feeling disappointed. The toddler that lives inside my head and isn't afraid of showing his true feelings in their full glory is still lying on my minds floor in full tantrum... yelling "it's not fair! Where's the rest of the summer?!". The big girl that I am just keeps on making warm floral patterns...

Celestial Tiger . . .

Took a break from my projects to make this celestial dream illustration. I've been reading "Ender's Game" and thinking about vast blackness of space... you can tell, can't you:).

Mornings . . .

I've met some morning people during my 37 year stay on this planet. They look like people. They walk and talk like people... but surely, their odd desire to wake with the birds and skip after breakfast is an alien trait:). Personally, when the birds start singing... I start thinking it's time to go to bed. Most mornings I do need a crane and strong smell of coffee to get me out of bed... or, better yet - a strange, catlike creature to whisper 'Good Morning, Princess' into my sleepy ear...

Secret Garden Planners & Calendars (Studio Oh!) . . .

It's been a 'no time for personal work' kind of week last week and another one just like it is coming right up. Wish I could show you some things I'm working on... but it would be a long time until I can... 
On the bright side - my samples of the Calendars and Planners from Studio Oh! have arrived.   I could never tire from seeing the final product:). They turned out lovely.

curious souls . . .

Took this weekend into my own hands and spent some serious time creating personal work. This new print is the result. Whatever day you are having... I hope it brightens it:).
