Happy Trails Ahead!!

Well, I am so sorry to announce that I am taking the rest of the summer off to reorganize and revamp my etsy shoppe, my blog and my life.
On a positive note, I have decided to make a plan and revamp my Etsy (more littles than bigs) and take some of my girls and their pets, "On the Road." :)
I am so thankful for all my friends and their wonderful advice! I really love you guys and will be in touch via your blogs. Thanks to my blogging friends who have offered their help in my adventure and to all who just visit. Whether you leave a comment of not, I appreciate the kind thoughts you send me.:)

I will hopefully be back this fall with new items and maybe a few shows to announce.:) xxxoooo

Happy Summer and Happy Trails to you. xo

Stars amd Stripes Forever.....

Well, It has been a while since I posted and am anxious to jot down a few notes here and share some pictures. Summer has been so busy and I barely have had time to even be on the computer. As you can see from the pictures, I am sketching and creating but haven't finished much. Every summer it seems that I find myself experimenting with many different mediums. You may see that reflected in some of my pictures.

I am also getting ready for the J.S.O.'s fourth of July concert. Have I ever mentioned that I am a substitute, symphony flutist by trade? Well, this week will be spent practicing. It is always a fun concert as the symphony plays through as the fireworks go off. They almost lost funding this concert this year but some kind hearts came through at the last minute with funds. A lot of symphonies are losing funding. What a shame. Ours is one of the top 5 in the state and we have a lot of local support but this was scary. I know that it is one of the Maestro's favorite concerts so I am glad it worked out. I love this concert so much I would play for free if need be!!:) So, Happy Early Fourth to all.:)

I actually completed a few of my little dolls. I am kind of saving them until I get a bunch made. Ethan loves to play with them and line them up. It's so cute. I would like to humbly ask my blog friends if they know of any shows I could possibly attend that my art may fit into? Am I even "good enough" to get into a show? I am a "people person" and would love some human interaction and maybe meet some fellow artists out there.

Etsy is not going well for me right now. I am working on something I have never done before. I am working on making little packets of tags to sell and possibly and "outside the lines" colouring book. I am also in the process of listing a bunch of art for 4-sale at $15.00.

Well, life here just got loud and crazy so I guess that's my cue to quit writing!!:) Oh, and the little guy in charge of all the clatter just happens to be the novice, fly fisherman in the pictures!! hugs to all!
