My family and I went to celebrate my sister's birthday at the lake this past weekend. We rented a big house by the lake and everyone stayed for three days. We had an absolute blast! It was great being able to see everyone for a concentrated amount of time. My sister and her husband have a boat, so we had a great time boating, tubing, skiing, hanging out on the dock, swimming, etc...! Lots of great food and good times. =)
And this weekend, my husband and I have our good friends visiting us from Ohio! We are absolutely thrilled they decided to come down to see us. I'm typing this as everyone's sleeping! I'm trying to finish it up before everyone gets up because we'll probably head out to do something fun! We may go to Stone Mountain or Helen or...who knows! But we'll definitely have fun. =)
There has been so much going on with my artwork that I wanted to tell you all about! I have released my tattoo inspired mermaid, Mina, on all my products, I have a new painting in the works, I have an awesome giveaway to tell you about, Uniquely Different Bags has created new bags featuring my artwork, and I also took pictures of my inventory and production area that I wanted to share with you all.
Mina - Now Available on All Products
This past week, I made Mina available on all my prints and products! The original of Mina sold very quickly, so if you had your eye on her, now is a great time to pick up something with her on it! She is now available in my Etsy store and my website on ACEO, 5x7 and 8x10 prints, stickers, magnets, bookmarks, pocket mirrors, buttons and printable coloring pages.

New Work in Progress - Strawberry Witch, Sydney
I am hard at work on a brand new painting and a brand new series! I decided to create a series of fruit inspired witches. All the witches will be sitting on fruit and have outfits inspired by that fruit! They will also have similar backgrounds so they will look fantastic arranged on a wall all together...maybe in a kitchen? =)
The first installment is strawberry! I had a naming contest which Heather Savino won! I decided to name her Sydney. I thought it fit her perfectly.
Here are a few pictures of Sydney's work in progress. The first picture is the sketch which will be available for purchase at some point. The second picture is the black and white digital lines I created in Photoshop which will be available as a coloring page very soon. The third picture is the current state of the painting. I just got the background finished and will be starting on the witch next. I hope you all enjoy her!
I recently hit 200 fans on my Facebook Fan page and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate and to thank everyone for their support! I am giving away 3 of my printable items (including coloring pages and printable collage sheets). Please see this blog entry for more details!
