Hi Everyone
Hope you're all doing well!
I picked up the cards today! I think they turned out great!

I also did something special! I made matching stickers!
Everything is in my store now, that includes the journals and bags. For those of you thinking about "Christmas", everything has to be in the mail by December 7th.

I've just finished another painting. Here are some of the progress pictures.
The completed painting.
"The Answer Is Yes"
"She Decided To Become A Crow, For The Rest Of Her Life....."
(10" x 20" canvas) I hope you enjoy the detail.
For all my American friends, have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
I thought I would share, what I see "basically" every morning, if I'm watching. It all starts when I feed my "pets". Yes, I call my birds, squirrels and chipmunks my pets. They know when it's breakfast! I tap the bird feeders and put out my pans of seeds and nuts for them.
I didn't get pictures of the ravens or chickadees this morning, but they were there!

Warning tones of photos😀 (click on the pics to make them bigger)
"Breakfast" They all start to rush in!
If they don't share, they get yelled at! Seriously, I do. I slap my hands and say hey, be nice, if I see them fighting or not sharing. So far, they listen to me!

The nuthatches and sparrows were at the feeders.
"Mr. Cardinal" was posing for me.
I think he was trying to figure out which bird feeder to go to! LOL!
"Thanks Mom Stacy"
I did manage to finish two paintings.
I did a similar one, to the one I gave for the Auction.
"First Snow" (6" x 6")
"Ancient Whispers Echo, By The Light Of Silent Stars" (8" x 10")
Just to let you know, the Christmas cards turned out great, but they over lapped the images in the printing process!! So they are being reprinted!!

Hi Everyone! Hope you're all well! The snow came and went. We have green grass again, but I'm sure the snow will be coming again soon and staying this time!

I completed going through the box and I'm happy to say, all the products were in tip top shape! No complaints! It was a long process, but I'm glad I did it right away. Then, over two nights, I took pictures and got everything in my store. So, I'm all done for now! LOL!

Remember this painting?
Well, it is linked with the one in my banner. During the time I was creating "Energy", I was outside one day, from doing fall clean up. I had the radio on and sat down. A song came on the radio. At this time, I didn't realize it was a "dance remix" of a song. Well, the last few words put me almost into a meditative trance. I kept hearing over and over, "It's Your Time To Rise". I ran inside trying to find out where this song came from, but couldn't. All I could think about, was the energy I got from this song, that's why I called this painting, "Energy". It was like a calling to me.

I don't know about you, but I believe in signs. When I heard this song, it was like a kick in the butt for me. Lots of change is going on in my life and sometimes that can be scary. But, if you don't take that chance, you never know, right?

So, I started my next painting, thinking about this song again!
I heard it again when I was driving one day, but I still couldn't get the information on it! Then, one more time, when I was outside, I finally heard the guy on the radio say it was a dance remix, and I found out where the song came from!

So, I went on youtube and located it! I didn't realize this song was about one of our Canadian Olympian's, Jessica Phoenix.
This is the "real" song, not the remix. I had to share it. I think it's a great message for us all!

Next in the painting.
The finished painting.
"It's Your Time To Rise"

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
How come everything always happens at once? LOL! Everything is going well, it just seems sometimes I'm running around!
We are suppose to get our first snow fall tomorrow! The temperature sure has changed!
Thank you for the input about the cards! They have been ordered!

The new painting in my banner, I'll be making a post about soon.

Now, guess what arrived today??
The journals and tote bags came in!!
I'm going through everything very carefully! I'm getting a headache!! LOL! But, it needs to be done.
This is what I will be doing for the next few days!
I'll be around soon to say hi!

Hi Everyone
Hope you're all well!
Do you remember this painting?
It's finished!
"Our Winter Love" (8" x 10" canvas)
Many of you were saying, this would be a great Christmas/Holiday card.
So, if I do it, this would be the front. Unfortunately, a lot is cut off around the card.
Or I have the option, of shrinking down the image, for everything to show, but then there would be a white edge? I'm thinking of shrinking it down. This would be the image you would see, shrunk down, with white around it.
Which do you prefer?

I would leave the inside blank. I think it would be better this way, because everyone has something different they would like to say. Do you agree?

This would be at the very back of the card. I thought instead of just saying "MagicLoveCrow".  I would have one of my paintings as well. So this image would be in the middle of the back of the card.
The card would be 5" x 7" and would come with an envelope.

What do you think????

Hi Everyone! Hope you're all well!
Happy November!
No, this is not my cat, and it's not snowing, but I just loved this image so much, I had to share it!

The winner of "Tender Hearts" is Louise from Fundy Blue 😀 Congrats Louise! E-mail me your address please!

I did finish a painting called, "The First Snow". This is the first time, I have donated a painting for a charity. I'm not sure how many art pieces they have collected, but they did want 50. All money goes to help send children to art camps and classes. From November 16th to the 29th, the art pieces are hung in the public library, then there will be an auction closing party at Brothers Brewing Company on Nov. 30th. I am hoping to go to that! They will be actually showing the auction live on the internet, so people can bid on line too. I'm anxious and kind of nervous to see how much the painting goes for!
Here is the painting, "The First Snow", 9" x 12".
A close up. 
After it's over, I'll share how everything goes.

Remember this painting?
This is where I'm at now. I'm almost finished!
Big Hugs 😁
