This is the newest print, hot off the Mac tonight! I was soooooo bummed today when it started snowing out, what the heck? It's almost April!! UGH, the joys of living in the north. I got to thinking of Spring time and new blooms, then thought of love because it seems there are always lovey dovey couples around in the spring, everything is fresh and new so hence the thought "Love Blooms". I have been trying to ward off my cold I caught from my sweet daughter, it's hard when all I seem to do is wipe long, stringy boogers from her cute little nose (sorry for the visual), this has been my week. So this print gives me cheer and hope for Spring and no more colds!!! I hope this brings a smile to your face. With much love,

Well hello there! Long time no blog!! Well the Wheaton fam is back from vacation and trying to get back into the swing of things. Florida was wonderful and I was dreading coming back to the cold. It didn't help that the day I landed it was sooo cold out and wind gusts up to 40 mph. YUCK! I'm dreaming of Spring now, it helps me to get through the cold days. I created Spring Speaks, the third piece of my Seasonal Series. Here's to first blooms, cute butterflies and lots of sun!!! This piece makes me feel all warm inside and gives me hope that it will warm up soon!!!
Traveling with my 14 mos. old was not fun by myself on the way home. On the way down it was rough but Daddy was there to pass her off to when I needed to. She didn't sleep at all on the flight down and it was at night. I think she knew she was going on vacation. She was so stimulated with all the sun, the pool, new adventures and new people. It was so fun watching her experience all the new things she did. This picture sums up Lorelei on a daily basis!! Watching life through a child's eyes is wonderful!! Here's to much happiness and a VERY HAPPY Spring!

This is my newest print for sale in my shop. It was originally a custom order for someone but I fell in love with it so much I'd thought I'd share it with everyone else! It is now listed in my shop. If you love owls then you will LOVE this print! If you like this print but would like different colors let me know, I'd be happy to accommodate you.
Latest news from me:
I'm happy to say the very wonderful artist Claudine Hellmuth is willing to meet with me when we go down to Orlando these next 2 weeks. I'm proud to say I own an original Poppet Sketch made by Claudine herself. I am going to be talking to her about my Swirlyville series and how to go about marketing it. How nice is that of her to meet a complete stranger and help out? She's AWESOME! Can't wait to meet you Claudine! Check out her website here.
Also I am honored to say that the Jackson Symphony has contacted me to use one of my logos for an upcoming concert in the Fall. They found me on Cafepress and want to use my BeGreen logo. The logo will be used as the centerpiece for all publicity on the concert. The concert will be called "Be Green featuring the Photochoreography of James Westwater." Westwater is photographer who will sync his photos to the orchestra playing music. The concert will raise awareness by environmental topics such as energy conservation, recycling, and overall green living. The logo will appear on all publicity materials (posters, flyers, season brochure, etc). Check them out here. Very cool and honored to be a part of this.
Well as I stated before we are going to Orlando on Monday. I will be gone until the 21st, any orders from Etsy I won't be able to ship until I get back. We're very excited because we will be meeting our new nephew Caleb who was born on 2/18. We'll be taking Lorelei to SeaWorld too, she loves sea animals so that should be a big adventure for her. I'm so ready for some warm weather and sun that warms the soul! It will be great seeing all of our old friends and family too, hopefully it will be a wonderful trip! Wish us luck flying with our 13 1/2 month old!!!
Til next time!
