Wine Glasses

A couple of years ago I saw some wine glasses in St.Augstine that had boobs on them. I thought the idea was pretty funny. So, I gave it a go. I made a set for my sister in law and her friend ended up ordering some. This is her set. My favorite is the navy blue one because the white really pops.

A little glitch

The very talented artist June Goulding noticed my bike did not have a chain, little things that I need to pay more attention to. So now she can ride her bike.

My first coloring book

I had the chance to work on my first coloring book for This was the first time in a long time that I worked in colored pencils and I really enjoyed it. I loved the control and the layering, I plan to do a lot more work this way. This was a great chance to start.

Jingle Bulb Coloring book

I have been working on a coloring book of designs  based on my JingleBulb business.
 I thought i would sit down with my colored pencils, I really enjoyed the process and gave me a better idea of creating my coloring book.

I found this idea on Pinterest, and it was so much nicer having all the pencils organized and available.

My new Studio

We finally moved into our new house and I have the studio almost done. I still have to hang up the ornaments that I make, but aside from that everything has a place.

Let me show you around. Its small but efficient.

We bought 2 ikea tables and put them together to give me a place to draw and also a place to craft. 
When my daughter came over she could be on one side and I could be on the other, it works out really well.

I am lucky that the closet is large, it holds a lot of my art supplies and when I don't want to look at it I can close the doors. The cubes are from Michaels , they hold a lot and they are easy to put together.
I found this table at a consignment store, I painted the bottom black with chalk paint and added some nice knobs from Hobby Lobby. This set up works well for me, I have my printers and scanners near by.
We bought this book shelf years ago, it managed to survive the move. Once again those cubes really work out so great. I was going to put up cabinets but it really closed in the room, so I need something else to hold even more things that I can't get rid of.
On the side are 2 pieces of art created by an artist I admire, Judith Moffatt.

I did the pony above as a present for my father who loved horses, I created that at the age of 4. 


The first piece of art my friend Katie Atkinson gave me when we left Ct. This painting was used in a greeting card for the company Good Cause. My friend Jeannine Audette had the studio wall art made for me by an artist that I love, Normas Francini, and the the squares were done for me by my coworkers at Weekly Reader, it was a tradition to make one of these when an illustrator would leave, I treasure mine.
I am very happy to have the studio all set up and am grateful that everything has its place. The two windows look outside to a pretty country road, where there are plenty of birds chirping.
