Sunday's Sneak Peek...news & veiws.

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!

This Sunday I won't be checking my emails! I don't know how many times I take things to the Goodwill only wanting them back, or buying them back. I don't know about keeping the economy going but goodwill loves to see me come in the doors!

You think that artists are hoarders... you should try working for an auctioneer as I do. The creative trinkets I come across would make the heart skip a beat.If there's anything you're ever in search of don't hesitate to ask.
That little sneak peak will keep us on the edge of our seats till Sunday for sure.
Till then...

The peep looks pink and mousey, (I wonder?).....
I thought you were talking about me when you said, I might not find another one.... I might need it one day....what an oppertunity, When I have more time I could make that.... and it goes on and on.

I can't wait to see what you unveil on Sunday, I love your little creatures. Could you tell me the name of your cross stitch monogram book, I love doing cross stitch and the book looks so interesting.

Can't think why you'd be nervous - so many of us would love to adopt one of your creations.
Hoarder? I hold my hand up. Drives my husband mad, but I wouldn't feel I'd got a home unless I had my hoard. :) xx

Everything you said about artist is just like me, as I can relate to that ! I am a hoarder also ,I always see so many things that innspires me to make something and most of it sits in a box or on the shelves ,soon I will be going through all my stuff too and hopefully get to the project also.

Exactly, I will have to take your advice, sans the going back to buy it again at goodwill! I am glad your first blog sale was a success, I have been putting off having one, I'm chicken, but now I think I will!

Susan, I too have nooks and crannies stuffed to the brim with STUFF. But, I can't bring myself to toss it... you know.. I might REALLY REALLY need it some day. And so might you, better NOT give it to Goodwill!
