What's New?...

I sold my original 'On The Catwalk' digital art print. I was going to relist another and then decided to change it up a it is listed ..with a new look and a new title...'Back On The Catwalk'.
The carpet cleaners are coming tomorrow...YAY!! I should be completely into my new studio by the week-end. In my younger days this move would not have taken two weeks to achieve...oh...those days are behind me now
I have been invited....and become part of the Etsy's Dark Side Street Team. The members of the team have some wonderful items listed on Etsy. Check their blog for more info.

Got a New Painting Listed

'Give and Take' painted, with acrylic paints, on an 11" x 14" canvas. It's been a while since I've painted anything larger than a 6"x6" I'm pretty pleased with this piece.
I'm still not completely moved. I've got to have the second floor carpets professionally now, I'm waiting for the carpet cleaners to come and that I can!
But, at least I've got a small space to work, for the time being.

Kicking back....relaxing...

...only because I am still not able to get moved in. I am really not complaining...well, actually I am. But, you really ought to hear me complaining to my son...the whole move is contingent upon what he is getting done...or not....mostly not....
It's true...he's got to move his stuff to the basement...and my stuff to the second floor...and steam clean the carpets while he's at it...
In the meantime...I'm kicking back and relaxing....there isn't much else I can do anyway! I don't do moves well...can you tell:)

Temporary break....

I need some time off of blogs, shops, creating......I'm tired...I'm still moving...I need rest. Hopefully not more than a couple of days to a week....but...if I need more time...I'll probably take it!

That time of year...

...that I don't know what to expect.
Father's Day will mark two years since my husband lost his battle with cancer.
He got the diagnosis in May, the year beginning in May until the end of June...I'm not sure how I'll be from one day to the next.
I'm better this year than I was last year and the year far anyway...but...between the studio move I'm in the middle of...the emotional roller coaster my children seem to be on at present...and my own...I'll just do what I can...when I feel up to it.
The only thing I won't 'slip' on is my shipping. I'm too OCD about getting my shipping done in a timely fashion...but, I may not create and list as many new pieces as I normally do....

It's My Time Now

I often find myself 'watching the clock' whenever I am under any kind of deadline...self imposed or otherwise. I am starting to get a little fidgety, waiting for my youngest son to get the upstairs finished so we can move my studio. was with all of these thoughts, fidgeting and clock watching going on that this little piece came to mind.
At some point or another I've got to say...'It's My Time Now'....

My own reality.... to speak.
I'm in the midst of moving my studio and print center from the basement to the upstairs...not the physical work mind you...I'm letting my youngest son do all of that.
He's moving to the basement because...well, it's a little self contained apartment...with kitchenette... 3/4 bath..separate bedroom and separate entrance. He probably should have been there all along.
Problem with the will be a week or so before I can get the studio to the point that I can actually use it. So, in the meantime....I'm going to do a few new photo manip's and digital pieces.

"The Lady's Bath" Made the Front Page...

My piece, 'The Lady's Bath', made the front page Treasury on Etsy today!
Since the Treasuries don't stay out there an awfully long time, I like to 'immortalize' it when it one of my pieces is fortunate enough to turn up out there.
I am very proud of this piece....the bird is an extinct Australian Huia, the dress is 19th century Victorian. It is my very first 'digital collage' and I really like how it turned out.

I have just been soooo busy....

Between having problems with my laptop...the cord threw sparks at me a few days ago and I had to borrow a cord that kept disconnecting me...and just being so busy trying to figure out where to go with my CMZ Art shop, painting 15 new ACEOs for my Rustic Goth shop, having the grandbabies every weekday and on and on and on...I just haven't been able to find a few minutes to post a blog.
I didn't realize how much I do count on having a good working laptop...well, I have a new cord...yay!!...hopefully my laptop is...or will good as new and I can get things back on track.
