Ghost Bike! Simplicity!


Today this beautiful ghost bike presented itself to me.  It was placed outside an art gallery.  The pure white bike with faux colorful butterflies attached here and there were fantastic!

Simplicity.

Mixed Media Note Cards!

This project has been in "the works" for quite a while.  My oh so sweet customers have over the years suggested...."why don't you make some cards out of your art?"

I thought it was a good idea at the time, yet I never pursued it...until recently.  I picked out four images and  I made four different note card sets.  I am quite excited about how they turned out.

This first set is called "Be Your Own Bird".


Each card is 4.25"x 5.50".  Blank on the opposite side of the image.


Each set comes with 10 cards and 10 envelopes.


Each set is packaged in a cello bag and every order comes with a little treat from me.  I'll share the other three images over the next three days. 

So pumped to finally make these.  Thanks for the idea!

You can them here.

Pointy Red Pumps!

"So, I'm goin' out tonight in my red high heels!"

-Kellie Pickler  (maybe the name "Prickler" is in order?)


Saw this little piece of botanical fashion at the Chattanooga Market and could not resist the photo op!
I actually find the thought of ramming my dawgs into this pointy red pump THE most painful option under the sun.....but, I do find ramming prickly cacti into this pointy red pump THE most perfect option under the sun.  

It is almost like "back at 'cha" toe crusher!

Paper Dolls!

I am still working on the art studio...but, as I have mentioned before things are surfacing I had totally forgotten were a part of the inventory.  Paper dolls are a FAVE!!  Although, my favorite part of the paper doll collection is the little gals you dress!  The card board cutouts of the precious, sweet little girls in their pantaloons. 

How sweet are these little faces?


I want to make something with these little girls....but, the project is still brewing....

Me and the gals above wish a Happy Mother's Day to all!

Chipmunk on a Cherub!


Came flying into my driveway as usual today, and for some unknown reason I glazed left to my left and noticed this little phenomena.  My history with chipmunks have been of two varieties.  

1. the remains of such animal given in offering to me by my beloved pet

and

2.  only catching a milli-second glance of such animal because even the beat of my heart spooks them underground

Today was the day to see the cute little rodent perched on the head of my cherub.  Unusual circumstance and impeccable timing, not to mention the quietest I have ever crept in my life captured this little moment!

Laugh and enjoy!
