Save the Date Postcards

I designed this 'Save the Date' postcards
a few weeks ago.
I used my little 'Betrothed' Goth Couple...
and I really like how it turned out.

I sell quite a few of my 'Betrothed' 
Save the Dates
but wanted to design something especially for
This is what I came up with.

New Paintings Coming...

My poor computer has gotten to the point that
it doesn't co-operate very well with my Photoshop...
so I haven't been able to work on very many new digital pieces..
including my Zodiac Girls.

I'm gradually trying to clean a lot of the pictures off my computer
so that I can, at least, get the rest of my Zodiac series completed.

In the meantime...I've been working on some new paintings.

I've borrowed Jaime's 'Harry Potter' audio books...which makes painting
so very enjoyable.

(I love painting...this just makes me love it even more!)

A New Twist...

While I was at Jaime's I decided to put a new 'twist'
to my typical 'creeper' paintings...
I've added whimsical houses to some...
new trees to others...
and even some new color on occasion.

I was getting rather bored with the old style...
and I'm really enjoying doing the new.

All of the paintings shown here have already sold
so it looks like other folks like the new style too:)

I've Been Busy....

While I was at Jaime's....I 'borrowed' the most gorgeous
turquoise paint and had to run and get some of my very own.
You see I have gone a bit 'wild' with this color...but it is so beautiful.
Unfortunately it doesn't photograph well...the pictures are much 'bluer' than they
are 'in person'.

But...still of the three paintings shown here...all completed in the last couple of weeks...
two are already sold.

So...I'll be doing a lot more paintings with this color.

I got so far behind in my blog reading that I decided to just read some of the
later posts...sorry everyone.  I love to read your posts...I just got way too behind...
so it's easier to just start 'fresh'.
Maybe I'll actually get a minute here and there to try to catch up...
but no promises.

When I'm not busy painting or little 'girl' (Skittles)
is keeping me hopping ... literally.
Her personality is shaping up to be quite 'active'...
and we're having a little problem with the biting during play.
I've tried everything I know to stop this...but so luck.

She is a little love most of the time though...
and the one thing I swore I'd never do...let a pet sleep with me...
guess what????
she sleeps with me.
(She loves to snuggle under the covers.)

She's a bit stubborn with the pottying...
knowing she'll get a treat when she goes on her pad
she still isn't going there often enough.
But when she does...she looks up to the shelf I keep
the treats on..and patiently waits for me to give her one.

She's learning to play fetch with a tiny little tennis ball...
all in all
she makes me smile more often than I frown these days.

But..she does keep me quite busy!
I suppose that's a good thing:)

Ides of March

Today is March 15th...
the "Ides of March"...
This print is in a number of different Treasuries...
most of which have been posted on my Facebook Page
and the rest in Twitter.

But I've gotten so many Shop Hearts today that I wasn't sure what was
going on...even with that many Treasuries...
then I got a note that this print is part of this
Handmade "Ides of March" Gift Guide
so that must be where all the visitors are coming from.

A Lot Has Happened...

Oh my much has happened in the past
few weeks.
After being 'displaced' for almost a week..
then having to wait for the cable to come out and
restore my internet...
I was JUST getting things back on track when...
my 16 year old Grandson showed up
with this little 'bundle of "joy"'.

He had mentioned that he wanted to get me a puppy...
'he didn't like to see me spending so much time alone'...
and I told him I'd first have to talk to my landlord...
(there's a 'no pets allowed' clause in my lease).

Well...I talked...the landlord said he'd "think" about it...
and after everything else happened...
I'd forgotten all about it.

Bless his grandson has been making payments on this puppy,
determined that I WAS going to have someone to keep me company...
what a wonderful child he is...I love him so much!!

And I am 'in love' with Skittles.
That's what I've named her!
And the name definitely fits her personality...
she has so much 'flavor':)
She's a mix of Yorkshire Terrier and Maltese.

Long story short..
I have introduced her to my landlord...
he just says,
"don't let her pee on the hardwood floors"...
otherwise I think he was rather 'smitten' as well.

And...if I thought I was busy before...

she doesn't give me too many minutes without being right underfoot..
she thinks I'm her 'mommy'.
