Almost the end of 2010...

...and we couldn't finish the year with some drama.
The past few weeks have been a bit crazy. With the little flood we had after the ton of rain in California... and  our poor cat was attacked be another cat and got a bad infection (now he's $porting a bald $pot in the head and mi$sing a cheek... yes it wa$ $$ at the vet too.) then some of my yearly routine tests came back weird, so they needed more tests and took their time to give me the results (which is by itself very stressing and sickening!) Then my MIL had some problems to fix in her house which my husband went to fix, only to ....break his wrist! :o(
But finally, I heard back from the results, everything is fine with me, which makes everything else a lot easier to take.  I am ready to say good bye to crazy 2010, not that we could keep it anyway, but wasn't it a crazy year? worldwide! It had it's good moments but.... Oh well!

Here's hoping that 2011 is beautiful, prosperous, and more than anything else... full of love and health!
Health is like a clean house... you only notice when it isn't so.

Merry Christmas

May we all rejoice in the celebration of life, the promise of forgiveness and love.
May our hearts find comfort with loved ones and our bodies be replenished with food.
May we get new inspiration to our artistic endeavors and  find the opportunity to share with others again, all the good things we like doing.
Have a wonderful Christmas, and/or any celebration you might have. My best wishes of health, love and happiness.

Many blessings to you, and thank you very much for visiting my blog, see you soon!

I think I should've waited to have all the presents under the tree to take the picture, but I didn't manage the photo with lights to look good, so ... oh well... :o)
Wow... 293 followers??? sounds like time for another giveaway!! The "almost 300 followers"

ADO Jack Frost challenge

I finished my little Jack Frost but I misplaced my thingy to see pictures in the computer, so I couldn't upload, or even see them... I was so frustrated! But it appeared all ofa sudden on the table. hmmm I think it was an elf, maybe? they love pranks....

So well, here is my ADO paper doll. It was a lot of fun to make!

Pencil sketch

Ink on watercolor paper

Acrylic selection used to paint the doll

WIP half painted

All done!
Oh! By the way, I changed my blog "share" button for the "like" button. So please if you like it, click it, don't be shy :oP  But I think it only works if you are in facebook, so let's see if I keep it or not...

On your marks...

Get set..... Are you ready for the next (and last!!) OWOH blog event?
This brings sweet and sour news to me. I LOVE the event!! I don't want it to be the last year! :o(
But I do understand that it is an overwhelming task to accomplish.

Well, in case you are not aware that it is coming, here is the link!

I will be offering 3 gifts to be announced later on.

More winter ACEO and a WIP doll

First of all... Thanks you!! almost all the girls I listed in my shop were gone the same day!! :oD
I listed one on ebay today, and have more listed in my Etsy, I'm on a roll!

Here is a picture of the new cuties and Jack frost. He is my ADO doll for the Jack Frost challenge:

Jack is going to be an articulated paper doll, very naughty and frozen cold. I don't think the picture shows well the pencil lines, but I will post more on him soon. Oh! And keep an eye open for the new video Slide show on beautiful ADO dolls! I'm working on it, slowly but surely...

I love the little avatar Xo)

Lots of stuff, late post.

There's a bunch of things going on at the same time:
I have been working on my Winter ACEO for a swap. yaay! My new girls are almost all done, I still have to do some finishing touches and take pictures, which seems impossible with this crazy weather. We had horrible winds, I had like a truckload full of leaves, then it rained a lot... which made my street turn into a little river for a while, with all the drains clogged with leaves. There I was last night at 9 pm with my little! (not!)

The other thing is that I finally bumped into the January issue f Doll Collector, where my doll Luna is published (and 2 more dolls I worked on, plus the doggy I made). Such a thrill, double yaay!

And I'm starting a sketch for my next polymer baby, to send in a tour next January. Can't wait to have all those babies visiting again!

A picture of some of the new ACEOs. The other pics are too dark, I will post and list tomorrow.

The runaway gingerbread cookie cracks me up :oP

My art hangs here...

I am dancing in the clouds.... It is with great pleasure that I show this links to the Art Show in Moss, Norway. I am lucky to be part of it with 2 Frida art cards that were mailed to help get funds for books in their Library.
David Samdum had this great idea of making the first Twitter and Art International show and has done so much work to put all of this together!
I blurred the other art but click on each pic to see the walls as it is displayed. .

One already sold in the first day! :oD I wish I was there... cold, snow and all!

I am never ready for December

I don't know about you guys, but December always sneaks in on me! I am never ready for it, always in shock to see that a whole year is almost gone. The ground has been covered in ice the past 3 days and I'm not done with my list of goals for the year! ;oP

Well, I sold many ACEO in my "Etsy code" sale, Thank you!!! That gives me room to make new designs, and the result is this winter theme girls:

I am not remotely close to be done, but I sketched and inked a few and I'm liking them a lot, modesty aside, of course XoD

From whatever part of the world that you are coming to visit my blog, I want to thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my postings. ♥
