Playing With Frida

 I'm working hard these days. I want to open another Etsy shop (I will definitely let you know when it's open) that has my art and images on clothing and other stuff. This morning I've been playing with an image of Frida Kahlo . I love her art and her style. I have this idea to print this image (on tee shirts and other stuff) and then add random, crazy-sewn, fabric scraps as "flowers" in her hair. Inside my head it looks really cool. I'm really happy with the way this image came along, I played with it for about an hour trying to get it just the way I wanted it. What do you think? I'd love some feedback on this idea. Wouldn't it be fun on a little onesie?

Thankful Thursday - Mushies Everywhere

Everywhere I turn in my yard there is a little (or big) mushroom poking out of the soil. They are so beautiful! I'm hoping to find the time to do either a photographic or painted study of them. They really are enchanting. I'd like to find some to eat too (don't worry I'll be very safe about this).
Thanks mushies, you make me smile!

December Thrills Me And Chills Me

Oh there is a chill in the air. I love this time of year. I ordered some gloves today. I'm excited for them to arrive. I've been missing some phone calls lately because I can't get my glove off fast enough to answer my phone (the phone doesn't respond to a gloved finger). So, I ordered these special gloves with metal in the finger tips, and they are supposed to work with my phone. Hooray, warm hands and nice conversations all at the same time.
