…i thought it was a bird but, it was just a paper bag….

Had an idea. I decided to put my kitty onto a paper bag, yesterday. So far, I’ve left him in this “unfinished” stage. Not sure if I’ll leave him this way. I kind of like this incomplete look….but, I’m thinking of adding some stitching. (Another new move for me.)

We’ll see.

Holy cow…

It’s been way too long since I last posted. Being a mom, wife, working, and playing as much as possible takes up a lot of time!

So, here’s a peek at my latest work in progress. It’s my (4-foot) rendition of the¬†Marvellous Spatuletail (Loddigesia mirabilis).

These little guys are so amazing and I’m having so much fun creating this painting. I hope you enjoy!

Happy Friday!


I almost forgot. I’ve recently dusted the cobwebs off my website, as well. Take a look!

I decided our house needed something: a Cherry Blossom tree. So, I’ve started to build one of my very own. This one requires no water, no sunlight, no pruning.

He’s a work in progress but, he’s coming up!


bloom, baby, bloom...
