Queen of the Cottage

We are still in a deep freeze here in PA.
That means all 3 of our cats are spending a majority of their time
in the house. 
Two of them usually live outside on the back porch/yard.
They have a little house that Mike built for them with a heated bed inside.
But with these temperatures, that's not quite good enough.

Anyway, what I'm getting at is that Cookie is
being challenged daily and is barely hanging on.
Even with her extra toes she struggles to keep the crown.
I exaggerate. It's mostly fine. :)

Original on wood in my Etsy shop.

Stay warm people!  And pets!!!

Let's catch up

Sorry for my blog absence.
Here's a quick recap of what's been going on since last I posted.

Let's see:
On the last Friday in January, Mike and I got to watch Eli
graduate from DEC.

He earned his Associate Degree in Graphic Design and
started his new job with Joe Sestak the next day.
We are very proud!

Aaron and Jesse were back in the studio last
weekend recording the second Josie McQueen EP.
He's been pretty stingy about it this time, not wanting us to get sick of it
before it is released.  Can't wait to hear ALL of the new songs.

Josh and Jess made the trip with us last weekend to Columbus
to see McGuffey Lane. We used to make the same trip every New Year's
(and more) when we were much younger… too young to be in the bars they played in
but somehow we always got in.  
Anyway it was big fun even if it was quite crowded.  Once I got in that seat there was no getting out again until the crowd dispersed.

We even got to talk to John at the after party.

And speaking of revisiting things from our pasts, 
I finally got to see Pippin live!
Gah!  I loved it so much and I'm still walking around singing

So yep…. all of that. 

And here's my "art" catch-up:

I did some sketching…

And some painting...

Original is sold, but prints are in my shop.

"The Crowned Princess"
(prints coming soon)

 And this one that I just listed today…

I also took some time to add a few images to my
other shops…

I added some cards over at Zazzle.

I don't think I added the actual crowned princess to Society6 yet,
but I did play around with some patterns and words that go with her.
The heart with the words "You are beautiful inside and out" can be found there.

It came from this card that I did add to Zazzle.

Well, that's no all really, but this is getting long.
So if you are interested head on over to my shops to see what's new. 
And have a great day!

Just a few sketches.


Making dolls from my artwork without my permission is still a copyright infringement.

Just a friendly reminder. :)

They a simple and sweet and fun to make.

The Bright Side

This is my resolution for the new year.

Sure, I've got a few others.
But if I fail at those, I will refer back to this one. :)
Happy New Year, every one!
