Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
I can't believe I haven't posted in such a long time! I just have been feeling kind of out of it. Everything is well, but I think, I was thinking too much and you know what that does....makes you worry and that's what I was doing! Thoughts can really screw up your brain! LOL!

Sorry, no new art!

Then, my computer was acting funny. Is Mercury in retrograde? LOL! So, I cleaned the cache and dumped a lot of pictures into the trash. Actually, it was mostly of my older art. When you have been painting since 2009, that's a lot of images! It felt good, almost like a Spring cleaning. Touch wood, my computer is working ok now!

I've started a Redbubble store! I made a post awhile back, when I was working on t-shirts and deleted everything by accident. Well, this time, I didn't do any of that! LOL! I've only done a couple of designs. I'll be adding more. I did this because I know so many have asked for t-shirts, cards, prints, etc. I wasn't sure with Redbubble at first, but with the on going communcation, I feel more comfortable!

Please if you purchase anything from me, or anyone else on that site, sign up for their e-mails. You will get "coupons" in the mail. I've seen them go up to 30% off.

Some of the good things for this site, free returns and exchanges and you don't have to pay the postage!
Sizes for everyone!
If you have to pay customs, take a picture of the proof and fill out their form. They will give the fee you had to pay, back to you.

I have everything listed in Canadian dollars and if I go to other shops, I see Canadian dollars too. So, I don't know if it depends on which country you are from, if you see in your currency.

πŸ˜€The girl who ordered the leggings, gets them this Tuesday, the 21st! She said she mainly looks for 3 things, "fit" (if they pinch or if she has to keep pulling them up), are they easy to wash and if they are transparent. Hopefully everything goes well and in the next couple of posts, I will be showing pictures!

One last thing!
I'm so fortunate with the people I've met through my art. There is one customer who just lost a friend suddenly. Her friend had a cat and no one wanted it. So she took "Arthur" in. Being a little hesitate, because she thought she wasn't a cat person.

Well, she loves Arthur and says he is so sweet. The one thing he has done, is attached himself to my paintings. It doesn't matter where she has them, he wants to be around them. She kept moving them, but decided not to anymore and let him be with them. I thought this was such a precious story, since I love cats!

Here is Arthur!

Big Hugs πŸ˜ƒ

  2. I was just thinking this morning that I must have missed your postings in my feed since it couldn't POSSIBLY have been so long since you had posted!

    The Redbubble thing sounds like a great way to get your art-related stuff out into the world. I'll have a look.

    And awww, Arthur is so precious. How darling that he's so fond of your paintings like that!

  6. Love that story about Arthur and his love of your art! He has good taste . . . or maybe he'd just like to taste a crow!

    Congrats on your Redbubble site! You KNOW I need a Happy Baby Crow t-shirt so I'm heading over there now to order one, lol.

  7. Arthur is beautiful. Congrats on your new venture. I will definitely be checking it out. I know what you mean about thinking too much. I'm good at that. Sometimes I think so much I end up in tears. Then I tell myself. One cannot change the past, can only make the future better.

  9. I completely agree with you about thinking! Overthinking can be so complicated and seems to just add stress. I spent time this summer cleaning up old photos on the computer. It seemed to make a big difference in how my computer was and is running. Good luck!

    The new site for putting up your work sounds great.

    I love, love, love the Arthur story. How sweet that he is attached to your paintings. Smart kitty. ;)
