Good Wednesday my friends...I have been spending the day tinkering around in my studio...had a brain storm which I couldn't ignore...gotta love those creative storms when they happen. This one included the use of some luscious red embroidery thread, some soft Grey linen & one of my favorite cross stitch monogram books...not gonna tell ya what I'm making though...saving that surprise for another day!
I have been doing a lot of early spring cleaning...went through every nook & cranny in my studio...got rid of stuff I haven't used, gave stuff to the thrift store....I can be such a knuckle head...I will probably end up going back to the same thrift store & not knowingly...buy some of my stuff back...get it home...& look at it & say....GEEZ...this looks awfully familiar. Why is it that artist's tend to be...well...hoarders...we go to the store...pick random things off the shelf & say, ohhhh I might need that some day....ohhhh these may be the last ones left...better grab them while I can....ohhhh I might want to try that one day...better buy the book, the DVD, & all the supplies you MIGHT need & then it sits there for months growing cobwebs & breeding dust bunnies...Like how many project books does a gal need. Other then my cleaning spree I am still busy working on my Valentines themed characters. I am definitely not use to working with such girly colors...I am a Tom Boy at heart...but I have to say I am tickled PINK at how they are turning out.
Speaking of Valentines...above is a Sneak Peek at this weekends offering which will be available for adoption on Sunday evening at 7pm eastern time. I was so excited last Sunday...I was nervous & had a bad case of butterfly's in my stomach. It was the first time I had ever offered one of my characters for sale on my blog & I was overwhelmed by all the folks who took the time to come by & have a look. My gratitude & appreciation go out to all of you...thank-you! for making my first blog sale so special for me!
Cheerio & have a mouse day!
