Lush Lush Kitters in a Fathric World-Print

Our daughter still has a difficult time saying fabric, she's eleven. With a skilled roll of her little tongue, it would always come out fath-er-ic with a short 'a' sound. When we had our son I would correct every word until we had our daughter, then I leaned that they will learn to say things correctly eventually. So, the super cute ones...I didn't correct.This is an 8 x 10 image printed on 8.5 x 11 heavy matte finish paper. I worked as a textile designer for a while and the digital flower patterns used in this piece were from that venture. Lush Lush Kitters in a Fabric World would work great in a child's room but that's not'll find a great place for it!

Beefs of Whimsadise

Here is a new print available in my Etsy shoppie. Notice the funky line texture within the tree.... Affordable and works well with Beefees too!

May I have your attention?

This is just a pump for folks aiming to get some attention for their blogs. Most of my traffic is coming from and blogexplosion, some comes from other blogs where I have posted and other blogs that have featured my work too. (yes, weeks after a feature I'm still getting traffic!) It is seemingly taking little effort to gain this attention, but it does take time. If you haven't checked into and blogexplosion do! You'll gain the most traffic by taking an estimated thirty minutes each wee by surfing blogs on within those sites. But, it works.

Flapling in Spring--Original New ART


Being an illustrator and selling my work is extremely rewarding. To begin with creating something is number one and selling is just the bow on top of the gift. In using the word gift I'm intending that in the way that I feel like I have been given a present each time I can sit down and create something. It's an important-special time for me.

Then when a customer or client shares how they have used my artwork in their home or how someone else reacted when they received my work as a present. It's just thrilling!

Chris Kauffman recently shared a photo of one of my prints framed in her most beautiful home.

Chris is a mom, wife and a mother of two. She aspires to be an interior decorator and you'll see when you check out her blog that her home is beautiful and very well decorated. She'd make an exceptional interior decorator!

Here in her post newest pieces you'll find one of my prints titled Morphans framed perfectly!

Natasha's Leads It's only been a short a mount of time, but I have gained a few bucks already with my affiliate Natasha's Leads. Check her out!

For me?

I won a prize! Isn't it funny how we wander through our day on the Internet signing up for things then not remembering any of it? My goal to support fellow Etsians, artists took me to a site last week sometime. I signed up for a newsletter offered by who holds a weekly drawing and I won! Coco has some fabulous pieces in her shoppie and I chose this beautiful necklace, which will be great with summertime deep v's! Make sure to stop by to take a look at the artist's other fine wears~and also her blog
