Time Flies

Gosh, it's been more than a week since I last posted. My daughter was on spring break all last week, so we weren't in our normal routine. She goes back to school tomorrow, and tomorrow I have two doctor's appointments + other errands. So I think much of today will be spent preparing for tomorrow....
Here's a journal page I made for a trade with a friend. And also an ATC that I made for a Marie Antoinette swap. (I made 3, but they're all similar, tho' not exactly the same.)

Mother Served Eggs Every Morning....

That's the title of my latest postcard created for SundayPostcardArt. This week's theme is mothers.
My mom was great about making us breakfast every morning, usually oatmeal or eggs. I've just started cooking breakfast for my family daily (after years of simply having cold cereal or frozen waffles on hand). They really like it, and I find I like starting their day with a healthy meal.

It's Wednesday already?

Here are a couple of ATCs (artist trading cards) I made for a trade with Tracey on flickr.
I haven't had much art time. I've been busy with taxes, doctor's appointments, and just generally trying to catch up on my life.
Furthermore, I'm trying to focus on taking care of my health--something I was going to do back in September when I put my daughter in school instead of homeschooling her. At that same time the opportunity to showcase and sell my art opened up, so that ended up taking priority. It's been a six-month whirlwind, for which I'm thankful, but now I really, really, really need to take care of me first and foremost. It's truly essential. It's my hope people will understand and be supportive of that.

J'adore Paris!

Here's a Paris-themed postcard I made. I'm in love with all things French. But I usually can't create the style that speaks to me. I didn't here, either. But I still like the postcard.

Here is some art I made for some weekly challenges. The woman holding a fish is a skinny page (3x5); the theme is fish. The zetti girl postcard (4x6) is for this week's challenge at sundaypostcard. This week's challenge is hosted by my friend, Danny, who selected "Words of Wisdom as his theme.

The Art Show

The art show was a blast. I sold a lot, including my 2 house canvases shown in the photo. On my art wall, you can see 4 pieces of art that I haven't been able to upload here. My friend, Anji, featured her sea glass jewelry in a store downstairs. Rumor has it that I'll be scoring a piece of her jewelry, tho' my husband won't give me anymore details than that. I can't wait!

Art Show Day!

In addition to the 2 pieces I provided links for in the previous post, I have 4 more pieces. I'll take photos of them today, and upload them tomorrow. I'll also try to remember to take my camera tonight.
After this, I need to take a break to catch up on my personal life.
Anji, I won't have a Venus piece after all. It goes in your mistake bowl. :)
Jenyfer, I did work larger!

A Couple of New Pieces

Here are a couple of new canvases that I will have in Friday's art show. These are each 12x16, and the files are too large to upload here. So I've provided links, since I was able to upload them to my flickr.
