A Baby Doll ~ Work in Progress ~

A new sketch book for Christmas, (not even the best of paper) but still with all these blank pages, I just couldn't wait to start filling it!!  Here is the first page...she's not finished yet, still a bunch of details to complete, a bit more color (thanks to Kristin's influences, thanks btw, I've become obsessed with adding color to my drawings!). I just couldn't help but want to share, I'm in love with her so far :)

Oh & Best wishes for a most Happy & Creative New Year!!

A Fairie's Letter part 3

OK it's slowly turning into a "Fairie's Name" :)  Here is the 3rd letter in her magical name...have you figured it out yet?

This is my favorite of the bunch so far...I'm trying to keep the set cohesive at the same time, trying to make each piece individually magical & still be special on it's own as well.

A clue;  an ~ I ~ is currently in the works....what fun I'm having with this project...

A Fairies Letter Part 2

Well, I've come to the conclusion that the little girl receiving these monograms, is a fairy indeed...a true Kindred Spirit, full of innocence & joy... You've seen the C for the first letter in her name...here is the next letter ~ A ~ I'm currently working on a ~ T ~. & of course working into it another little fairy...I want it to be real magical for her. I can't wait to see the project in it's completion... in the meantime, I'm simply enjoying seeing it all come together for the little girl.

They are all 11 X 14 & I wish I had a scanner, because taking a picture of this piece truly does it no justice :/

A Fairie's Letter

I can't tell you how busy I've been between Thanksgiving and now! First of all we had a most wonderful Thanksgiving at Grandma's house (my mom that is). We made a fabulous turkey, all of the trimmings of course & lots of deserts....all in all it was a wonderful day, with tons to be thankful for...this is our second Thanksgiving now without my dad & I'm still not used to him not sitting at the head of the table. On that note, I'm so thankful for all of the gifts that he has given me that I don't think I ever even realized till after he's gone.

Anyway, on a lighter note, I've been so busy tending the shop...black Friday & cyber Monday, had tons of traffic!  & most importantly, creating artwork. My current project is a "C" that I finished for a precious little girl for Christmas. I say "current" project because, not only did I do her initial, but I'm doing all of the letters in her beautiful name as well :). So, with that, here is the first letter in the project...OH Kristin, seriously, look at ALL this color!
