An Oldie but a Goodie

Why are these little birdies singing such a happy tune?

Could it be because they are so happy to see the little Birdie Sisters?

I do believe so. 

This is an illustration I did in January of this year. Sometimes I finish an illustration only to find the frame doesn't quite fit the feel of the painting. Thats what happened in the case of this little illustration. I was very happy tonight when I went to get an oval piece of glass from Michaels and I found a perfect frame for the little Birdie Sisters. This will be added to the upcoming Friday update.

I have another illustration I am hoping to get started tonight, however I have to finish up a little project for the JDRF. Look for another illustration soon. I would like to add one more item to Fridays update. So off I go to work my little buns off! If only I actually saw results (in the bun area that is :) 

P.S. Don't forget to go check out Sitting Pretty Studios Newest Giveaway. The handmade cards are just adorable. 

P.S.S. Their is another giveaway at Bloesem Kids. They are giving away a $100 gift certificate to the lovely children's store Chittypulga. If I won I would use it for Christmas presents for my little ones.

Newest Illustration

If life really is a bowl full of cherries,

Then this little gal must have the right idea.

Started and finished her tonight. The colors are better in person & I am hoping to capture the true color of this illustration when I am taking pictures on Thursday. It will come in the cutest little frame that is made from reclaimed wood & is in the shape of a house. I really liked the frame but deciding the perfect image took a little while. The frame is a shade of blue that I would associate with a beach house feel. I wanted to achieve the feel of a warm spring day. I think I was successful. Look for her in my shop update this Friday.
