More fun in the studio and punkin patch with my boys!

Hi Everyone!

Had to share a couple of 'Bookmark /Cards' that I have just finished!

I've combined the laminated bookmarks with a custom greeting card by attaching the decorative brad at the top of the bookmark to the front of the greeting card ~ My latest idea: Give a card and a gift
(the bookmark) at the same time!

Would love to know what you all think of these - I have several other styles made up too!  I am having so much fun and getting some great feedback here locally!  Beginning of next week I head out to some local shops to see if any of them would like to carry these beauties for the holidays!  Wish me luck! :-)

I just love this color combination!

And this sweet gal is a huge hit with all of my friends little girls!  I've sold a couple of these
bookmarks already. 

The little local show I did last weekend was pretty slow, but I am doing another one in a couple weeks that may be busier... I did get to meet some really fabulous local artists and that was so much fun!!!

I also got two of my pieces printed as giclee prints on gallery wrapped canvas and they are so beautiful!  I showed them to a local business owner and she sent me over to talk to another business that may be interested in doing a little show for me - I will keep you posted about that!  I plan on bringing the canvases over there early next week!

And had to share a visit to the local punkin patch with my boys ~ Here is little Eamonn feeding the chickens with fresh ears of corn!  Both the boys LOVED the animals and wanted to stay feeding the chicks FOREVER!  Soooo much fun!

Eamonn did start out the day very reserved - I just love this pic!!!

And Liam, Proud as punch to be feeding the chicks!  He was truly in heaven! 
The stayed with the chicks for at least 20 minutes.

Boys waiting for their turn to pick just the right piece of corn for the chickens!  My sweet Lovies!!!

So I am full of creative spirit and enjoying my family and friends and Art!

I hope you are all enjoying a creative holiday season, and spending time with your families and friends as well

Bookmarks and Cards! - Sunday Sketches

Hello Everyone!  Look what I have been up to in my little studio!  :-)
Getting ready for a local craft show and making lots of pretty laminated bookmarks and greeting cards!

This is such  great way for me to share my art with people at a reasonable rate! And my creativity is going wild as I look for new ways to embellish each piece.

Love this beauty! :-)

The details on these two at this tiny size are insane!  I just love what shrinking my work
does to the detailing on each piece!



Just back from a trip to the Oregon coast where I attended several gallery events and had an absolutely inspiring weekend!  I got to talk to several artists that, like me, got serious about their art later in life.  I am so full of ideas and so inspired I could burst! :-) 

Don't you just love when that happens!

Smiles and exhuberent hugs to you all!


PS - the bookmarks are available to purchase here :-)

And I will have the cards up soon...

And for new work...These are some bookmarks I did for the kids a while ago...

But I am working on new ones to add to my online shop with popular girls and boys names - These can also be custom ordered. :-)

Please stop by lovely Sophia's and check out all of the other wonderful artists that participate for
