It is a new year, a new decade and so many things are going on. I really didn’t bother with making resolutions this year. It is definitely hard keeping up with all the new things falling into place, but everything is falling so well. I didn’t want to muck it up with a lot of empty promises made to myself. I will worry about getting into shape at the end of the year after I recover from the birth (always my standard resolution), and I will continue to concentrate on building a business out of my art. Slowly, but surely, I am winning this race. Now, if I could just manage to post more and still get the dishes and laundry done. I blame it totally on nesting. Jude is due February 19th, and for weeks now I have been obsessed with cleaning baseboards and closets. I have been wiped out and tired. I’m painting, but not as much as I like and am finding getting into a set schedule very difficult. I only anticipate it getting more hectic. That’s OK though, it is so exciting how much our lives are going to change this year, so I say bring it on.
Things that have been happening of late:
~Playing with ink. I love it! It adds a texture and dimension to my art that makes me sing. I really love Tim Holtz’s line of alcohol based ink.
I love the texture and depth it adds to my pieces. Trying to develop a consistent style is difficult when I have all these fun materials to play with.
~I’m also trying out a new venue for selling my art at etsy.com. If you click the shop link on the home page it will take you to my store. or follow this link http://www.etsy.com/shop/wenderflonia.
~BFS and I have been super busy gettign ready for or little Aquarian arrival. It is less than 4 weeks now (Not panicking AT ALL!!!!). We have been aranging and rearanging and preping and cleaning and painting.
Isn’t this fabulous!? Super talented BFS painted this for our sweet baby boy. It will hang in the nursery……. err That is, once we get around to actually get the nursery decorated and set up. Hopefully, I will be able to post a companion piece soon with an elephant and sun soon.
As hectic as things will be in the next few months, I hope to stay on track and post more. Fingers crossed. Now I think I will take my turtle self to bed and see if I can get a few hours of sleep in.
