In the last few days a couple of bloggers have featured my artwork on their blogs and another has asked me if she can in the future. Naughtysecretaryclub, in a blog about family portraits, featured my little Astronaut custom portrait and fortheloveofcute featured my Snowy Penguin print. Thank you to all for the good exposure!

Hi! This week I've been working on the cover for my husband Eric's new CD. He is a wonderful (well, he IS a wonderful husband but is also) musician/composer. :) I find drawing him rather intimidating. Not because of his attitude about it. He is always supportive of my work. I just really want to do him and his music justice. So, this is a sneak peek at the work in progress. The pants are giving me a hard time. I think I'm going to have him pose wearing a different pair. These were too baggy. Not coming across as crossed legs. Anyway, hope you all are having a wonderful week!

I'm so happy with the way these turned out!!! Doing a happy dance! I've just placed these pretty pocket mirrors in my shop. This is from my "Russian Doll and Snowman in Love, a Snow Globe Love Story series". The round shape of the mirror is perfect for this snow globe illustration! And the sweet couple looks so elegant through the black organza bag. I knew the white of the snow would gleam through the bag and the black top hat, bow tie and details of the Russian Doll's dress would look stunning through the black organza. Love it when something turns out as good as I had hoped! The photo really doesn't do it justice.
Oh, and a note about yesterdays entry- The Little Red Riding Hood, Gingerbread Man Pocket Mirror. I keep thinking it looks so yummy I want to eat it. With it's sugary snow and sweet gingerbread man! Looks like a cookie! he he he

I just listed pocket mirrors in my shop this morning. I'm soooo Happy and Excited about the way they turned out!!! WistfulSupplies did a great job of producing these for me. I knew they would look great in the black organza bags! I just can't get over how pretty they are. Even more beautiful than in the photograph. I really need to purchase a tripod to keep the camera from shaking. Anyway, I LOVE these! lol Can you tell?

Top picture is a piggy bank I keep in my kitchen! Kind of a joke, having a foot tall piggy standing on my kitchen island. He, he, he. I ADORE it! My husband and daughter got it for me from an antique store for my birthday.
Bottom picture are mostly items I treasure from my childhood. A Three Little Pigs book, night light, motif dolls dress and the sweetest pink piggy stuffed animal. I always thought its feet looked like pink marshmallows and wanted to eat them up I loved it so much! The night light still works! The piggy key chain is from my sweet husband.
If you are wondering, Yes, I kept just about everything from my childhood. Now I get to play with them all over again with my daughter! :)

I'm offering a Sale price on my new Russian Doll and Snowman card sets. There are 4 different sets of these cards in my shop. Properly pricing new items can be difficult. A real head scratcher. These are the first cards I've offered. If I get a good response with this sales price I will make it permanent (material prices permitting). :)
