Tried a new thing!

I tried deconstructing a book.  I have never done this before. I had an idea and 2 books later...it worked.  I created a tree inside a book.  I didn't add anything to the book, I just used the pages inside. I had an idea to make a tree.  Imagined what it would look like, and here it is. What do you think??
Give me some feedback.  :)
This new year-I have some new things in mind.  I am planning a lot of new books, artwork and possibly a line for sale.  I have been working on it-which is why I have been absent from my blog.  I have promised myself that my blog will be a priority this year too!!  
I created a twitter account-follow me on twitter!  I will start it up soon!!

My Houses....

This is one of my little fairy houses.  One of my favorites.  I really like making these little homes.  I just wish I could spend a few days inside myself.
This one is really cute too! Seeds from the tree and pine cones!
The one in the front is my first one.  All sticks.  I love making these.  I can feel the energy in them when I am creating them.

Some of my latest..

I am obsessed with this little princess.  I do not do portraits, but after seeing pictures of her, I had to do one.  She is my little cousin, cousin, cousin...just beautiful.  I truly do not do her justice.


Wow...time to get back to posting...

It sure has been awhile..it has been a more then hectic several months.  I really cannot begin to tell you what has been happening.  In between life-I have been trying to get in some artwork.  I will post some next.   Thanks for being patient with me...keep following me.  There are a lot of new things to come and hopefully some exciting changes!

Name Game

More names...
I love doing these names.
I have done a few more and have more that I have on order.
It is a mystery how they will turn out.
These two are David and Debbie...

 

 This one is Debbie and David together.

Where I Want to Be....

This looks like a place I would like to be.  I am always looking for serenity.  The garden center down the road from me has the countdown to spring on their sign.  I really can't wait every year.  I plan to plant my bamboo this year.  My next drawing should have bamboo...

Giraffe Dancer

  Of the friends that I have in my life...I am truly blessed to have absloutely incredible ones.
This drawing is for another one of those friends.
This one has a lot of meaning, but I am not going to go in to all of that.  The dancing figures are something that I created a few years ago and I love them.  They make me feel free...  It would be great to be able to create all day long-to just be involved in art type work.  Sigh...maybe someday.  In the meantime, I will just continue to crank it out in the evenings and on weekends!

(On another note....it is 65 degrees outside today....in January!  It felt so nice!)

New Artwork

Wow~where has the time gone?!  I have been busy getting through the holidays and working on some new handmade books and artwork.  I have a new technique that I am doing with my pen and ink.  I am using pen, ink and pencil.

This is a piece that I did for a friend of mine.  I have never drawn a cat or an owl in anything I have done before.  Well, at least not as an adult.  I really liked how it turned out, and I think she liked it too.  I will be posting more artwork and the books when I have them finished.  

If it keeps snowing and if the temperature outside doesn't
get any better, I just might have a lot to post.  I can't stand the thought of going out there!  (Well-of course-I still have to go to work)

I always welcome feedback!
