One More Question For You

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Thank you so much for your comments on my last post! I am truly grateful for you looking at the items and telling me your favourites! What I am planning to do is, order two different bags, with their matching notebooks and then in another month, get two more different bags and notebooks. I think that will be it, before Christmas.

Some of you were asking about the tote bag. They are big and stretch. This is an image of one and underneath is the size.
Now, I have one more question for you. I've already asked some of you this question. The notebooks come in two different sizes. Would you like the small size or big size? For now, I was just going to get one size. In the future, I might get both.
The small size, for the front cover is, height- 8.5", width- 5.25" and the spine is .25"
The large size, for the front cover is, height- 10.25", width- 7.5" and the spine is .25"

Thanks for helping out, again!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Happy Autumn! The most wonderful time of year!!

I've been busy creating! Bags, notebooks and even a pair of leggings! Not sure if I'm going to keep all the designs, but I really wanted to experiment and see how everything would look. It was disappointing that I couldn't use a lot of my art work on the bags, but maybe I can use them on something else.
I need some help from all of you. In your spare time, if you don't mind. Can you please tell me, which is your top 3 designs from the bags and please tell me if you like the notebooks and leggings.

The only way I could show you everything properly, I had to make an "Art Of Where" store. I will give you the link. When you go there, press on the titles, like Books, Bags or Clothing and it will take you to the articles. When you place the arrow over the moving pictures, you can turn the articles around. Like for the bags, you can look inside, on the sides, and on the bottom. I also made two bags, that don't have any crows. I took pieces from the paintings I liked and used that. Like I said, I have been experimenting.

The Books, make sure you look in side! You will get a surprise on the first page!

Here is the link!

Thanks for taking the time! I appreciate everything. From your reviews, I will decide what to do next!

I forgot to show you, my label! You have to imagine this folded. This will be my "clothing" label.

Big Hugs☺😀

Just to let you know, I changed the articles around a bit, from when I first did this post. There are no more leggings and the designs without crows, have been deleted. My crows are me!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Today is my birthday and I have to say, I think it's my best birthday ever. Not because of gifts, but because of how I feel inside. I hope that makes sense? I'm also so grateful and fortunate for all of you! I know I say that often, but I mean it!! 😃

My oldest brother got me a Red Velvet cake and mom got me vegetable chips! Good combination! LOL!
Mom also got me a scratch ticket. I didn't win anything, but that's ok, I just love the name on it!
My other brother and sister-in-law got me a beautiful candle and balloon. I forgot to take a picture of the candle! I was also surprised, by my neighbour's little girl today! She made me a very special card! got me crying!
Ok, by now you want to know about the winner. I had 9 people enter. I thought what can I do, to make this giveaway as special as I feel inside. So, I decided to do this. The first name I pick, is going to get all the stickers I showed. This person is. Val from MissValsCreations! Congrats Val!

Now for the rest of you! CJ, Sandy, Gina, Valerie, Deb, Magaly, Victoria, and Lone. (If I have missed anyone, please let me know.) I am going to send you a couple of stickers and if you don't mind, I will choose which ones you get. I would love to give all you, all of them, but I might run out! LOL! I have to get more printed.

Please, even if you think I have your address, send it to me again!! Congrats Everyone!

Just to let you know, I've been "trying" to design the bags! My eyes are going crossed eyed! LOL! It truly is like making a pattern! I have to make all the photos with different pixels too. Not all the paintings I liked, are going to make it. I'm really trying to use the one in my banner. I think one side will be the Goddess and the other will be the baby crows!

I do have some new paintings to show you!

"Be You" "Shine Your Light" (5" x 7"canvas) (I'm hoping to get this painting on a bag, if it turns out right!)
"Trust" (5"x7" canvas)
"Best Friends" (2.5" x 3.5")
Just to let you know, I have to "concentrate" on these bags! Doing this, I won't be showing a lot of new art, for awhile. Saying that, it's going to be very hard for me to stop! LOL! So, we will see!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Thank you for the response to my last post and being there for me! I'm very grateful for you all!

I'm setting up my profile to get the "day bags", designed. They have just added notebooks, so I thought that would be fun too! I will also be designing some new stickers! I know I have asked you this before, but please, if there is a "specific" painting, you would like to see on the bags, or anything else, tell me. Even if you don't remember the name, just describe it. Thanks!

I want to thank Valerie, for a surprise happy mail. It came at the right time! Sent all the way from Germany, a beautiful postcard! If you don't know Valerie, I would go say hi. She is a special lady, who creates amazing art and her photos are beautiful! Thanks Valerie!
I love what was on the back of it.
I have finished some paintings.
Here are some progress pictures, of one I just finished.
Finished piece.
"She Whispered" "I Am Here" (12" x 16" canvas)
I also would like to show you some baby crow aceo's. (2.5" x 3.5")
"Marshmallow Treat"
"Grocery Shopping"
And, I have one more thing before you leave!
It's my birthday month, so I thought I would have a giveaway. I'm giving away a set of my stickers. You will get all the ones I showed. If you would like to be involved with this giveaway, please make sure to say, "I Want To Be In The Giveaway". My birthday is September 18th, so that is the day the winner will be announced!

Big Hugs 😁

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Happy September!
Thank you for the comments about the stickers. I'm really going to try to give "choices". It might take me a week to set it all up! LOL!
I'm going to be getting a couple more designs, too!

Over the years, I've been asked, what do you do first when you paint. Well, usually 99.9% of the time, it does start with a background.
Now, when I start a background, I "usually" have in mind, what kind of style of crow I will be painting on the background and I do a quick sketch on the side. After that, I go for it.
Sometimes, after I have started, I think, hmmm... I just don't know, but I'll keep going!
I have to admit, when I start to paint and it's really talking to me, nothing will stop me, but then other times, I feel I am forcing it and I don't know where I am going with it!
That's what happened with this painting. It wasn't connecting with me. And, when that happens, I have to stop and put it to the side, until my soul is talking to me. But, when I get that moment, when something clicks, the canvas is back in my hands!

I am so happy I took pictures of this process, because I don't think you would've believed it was the same painting! It doesn't mean this other crow won't be coming back. It just wasn't his time.

"Lady Of Crows" (12" x 16" canvas)
