I've been inked!! FINALLY!

Some of you know I've been wanting to get this tattoo for quite some time, well today was the day! I'm so excited at how it turned out. It didn't hurt as bad as I had built it up in my head. My good friend Holly came with me to document it! If you'd like to see more photos you can see them here. I know this means if I have another kid in the future that means another tat, cool with me!!

Introducing the newest member of the family.

Well we decided to get a best buddy for Lorelei this weekend. We've named him Riley. He was free to a good home and we thought our home was good enough for this sweetie pie. He's just so gentle with her and us. He was around kids before so is used to them. He follows her around like crazy when he's not cuddling with J or I. She loves her new puppy and says "woof, woof" when she sees him. It's so sweet. He's also part of my time management plan, he gets me out of bed early, no more sleeping in. Lo tends to sleep in and so did I. It's a good thing, I think. Let's see I'm already showered, ate breakfast, fed him, played with him and took him outside, finished a painting, hardboiled some eggs, put my make up on and dilly dallied on the computer all before Lo got up (not in that order)! Great morning!! See it's working!

Because my time is better managed now I'm hoping to be able to do more art! YAY! Anyways, I will be listing a new series in a week or 2! I'm very excited about it! I think you will be too. If you're one of my contacts on flickr you may have already seen my Little Whimsies. Be on the lookout for them. It will be original prints and paintings all sized 5 x 5! So cute!

Have a great day!

Fabulous Etsy Finds

Well this week I've spent waaaaay too much time on Etsy. I would say I'm a definite addict, are there any self help books on dealing with an Etsy addiction?? I would say I need to read it if there is one. Anyways, with all the time spent on Etsy I've happened to find some noteworthy shops, I've been on Etsy for over 2 years now and I'm still discovering great new shops and sellers. Etsians are a great group of people, I say this because they're not commercialized someone put it in a good way, "Etsy is a window shoppers dream!" I was in chat for an hour which wasn't a complete waste of time because I walked away with 3 trades! I found a lot of people loved my art last night and were willing to trade their precious items with me. I traded for some handmade soap, a pearl necklace, and an antique Kerr jelly jar that has been Shabby Chic'ified (if that's a word). It was great fun!!!! I had 2 more trades the day before, an owl pillow and a vintage 50's bird pillow for my studio! I'm so excited about receiving all these goodies, it's like Christmas in April!! Of course I bought a few things as well and I'm also thrilled about those. Well let me get to the fabulous finds I wanted to share with you!

In no particular order here they are!

This fabulous print is from ArtandPhilanthropy, I just love all of the textures and patterns in it, I may have to purchase it soon!!!
This adorable print is from Dazeychic, I just love her work, I had a hard time choosing. She's also one of my favorite bloggers, she's a great writer. I bought this one, I loved it's sentiment.

This sweet print is from Fall Down Tree. I found him on somebody's treasury on the front page of Etsy. He has some adorable work! I love how simple but full his images are. Definitely a new fave!

Check out Freshline!!! She has some sweet illustrations and is a very sweet person from what I can tell. She was in the trading room last night and seemed very nice. She also has a nice blog.

Well those are my favorites for the week! Go check them all out you won't be disappointed!!

Happy weekend all!!!

Be Grateful

Hello there!

Here is my latest print available in my shop. It's a reminder to be grateful in all things which is sometimes hard to do! I'll be so grateful when Winter is officially over here in Upstate NY. I think it is but you never know, it could change like that!

Because I believe Spring is here I've decided it's time to go on a much needed Spring Cleaning binge, here at home and in my shop online. I've had pieces that have been sitting around for a long time and haven't sold yet. I'm going to knock those prices down with my Spring special, of 30% off just to move them. Time to make room for new pieces in my studio just waiting for new homes. Just add the code 30OFF in the notes to seller section on Etsy when you check out and wait for an updated invoice from me before paying. All of the items on sale will be placed in a 30% off Sale section.

Also I'm getting close to hitting the 300 hearts mark! YAY I'm so thankful for all of you who have hearted me and passed on my store info to friends. Whomever is the 300th person to heart me will receive a FREE, yes I said FREE print of your choice from my shop as much thanks and gratitude. My only request is that you truly heart me and like my stuff! Don't heart if you don't mean it! :)

Well that's about it from here! It's sunny and gorgeous out today and for that I'm soooooo grateful. Hope you're feeling grateful too!
