Love Birds

I've been painting lots of little birdies lately and adding them to zazzle... and I sold my first bird design today!

I am pleased with these cute little love birds and I hope you like them, too! I am thinking of doing more customized designs for invitations and such. Since my biggest seller is a wedding design, I figure that may be the way to go! :)

Festive

I'm starting to get in the Christmas mood... Actually I'm in a festive mood for at least 3/4 of the year. I'm that person that listens to Christmas carols year round and watches It's a Wonderful Life in June. I can't help it - it's the most wonderful time of the year! So I went ahead and did a little festive bird design!

Babies...

I made a few baby announcement card designs today...

Sail Bird

I put up a new design today - Sail Bird... I'm making all sorts of little birds, and I really like this little guy - plus I would really like to be sailing in warm weather right about now. :)

Pretty Bird

Another little bird design... I love that pet birds always seem to enjoy seeing themselves in the mirror... too cute to resist.

Harvest Bird

I really love crows. They are always interesting to watch and seem very intelligent, not to mention they are just so festive. The other day I saw a HUGE one on my balcony (very unusual), which of course led to this little design...

Changing it up

Well, my computer crashed several weeks ago. I'm pretty sure it had some sort of electrical surge (even with a surge protector!?) during a recent storm, and it had been acting funny ever since. Finally it died for good. I had all of my artwork, etc. backed up on discs so I didn't think it would be too much of a problem. I went out and bought a newer pc (it's so small and quiet!), but unfortunately not all of my old saved files will transfer to my new Vista! Argh.
But something good did come out of this. In the weeks that I was without a computer, I started doing more drawing & painting. I got inspired by some doodles I'd been doing of little birds and by a delicious looking cake and I painted "Sweetie Bird".

I have lots of ideas for other little birds and hope to continue on this path for a while! At least until I can figure out the new software on my computer to start making digital designs again! I actually am very excited about getting back to basics with my pens & brushes!

Busy, busy, busy

So sorry I've been away so long! Sometimes life gets busy and it's hard to find the time to update! While I've been away, you wouldn't believe how many "Just Married" products I've sold. In the relatively short amount of time this photo has been in my gallery, it has become my number one best seller (if only I made more than 10%!! sigh...). I'm so pleased that people are finding this photo and choosing to make it a part of their weddings! That's really exciting and I love knowing that it is being sent out to people's loved ones for one of the most important events in our lives. Fantastic!
