A couple of bunnies & a bitch, oh my!

Bunny Love-Mixed Media on 9x10 masonite board

Ok, I took a little turn and stepped away from angels for a sec! She's a sassy, confident blonde and I wish I were her sometimes.

My art journal sketches

These are a few of my sketches in my art journal. I'm not one to write down feelings or thoughts but I doodle and it provides the same stress relief for me:)

This weekend I have my 3 grandkids over to visit while their folks are away skiing! We're getting ready to make cookies and I plan to try out my new FACE paint on them later! I'll be sure to post pics if all goes as planned.

Ok, Drumroll puleeeeeeeeeeeeze! HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYAN!

Here is the latest angel I've done.

"Thorns and stings and those such things,

just make stronger our angel wings"

I've added a kitty!

Last night I decided to bake my son a LAYER CAKE! I thought I had cake mix, but nope! So I actually whipped up a chocolate cake from SCRATCH! I put a crumb coat layer of frosting on it last night (can you tell I watch Ace of Cakes?) and hope to finish it up today! I'll be sure to post pictures of it if it's not too embarrassing!

Here is the item I made for the Northern Lights Auction to be held Jan. 22, 2009.

The theme is 'It's a Jungle Out There'.

I didn't want to do animal prints so I took a different approach to it. It IS a jungle out there in this world, but we are never alone. We have our guardian angels with us always♥

I opened shop!

I finally took the plunge and started up an Etsy shop! I was painting and creating all this schtuff and was running out of wall space in the spare bedroom so I thought I might as well try and sell it.
I'm sooooo used to Ebay and the 7-day auction format so this is different for me. I put stuff in my shop and there it sits. I don't know if it's being seen or not. I'll have to do more research on how to promote this better.

It's wicked cold here today. -30 below. I keep telling myself to embrace winter and try focus on the positive things about living in the Red River Valley, but it's mornings like this that make it tough!

My etsy shop is:
