Hello 2013!!

As we say goodbye to 2012, I wanted to take a moment to tell each and every one of you how much I appreciate your support and the constant love you all freely give.  I never cease to be amazed at the thoughtfulness of my wonderful friends, both cyber and real-life!

Over on FaceBook, I did a quick post about two small books that I put together featuring my 2012 paintings and a few dolls and pendants.  The purpose of the book (in the small square version) is to take to NY later this month to give to prospective clients but I offered to have extras printed if anyone was interested.  I must say, you guys overwhelmed me with your support!!!  I have the lists of everyone who wanted to preorder and I have decided before I place this big order, I really need to preview the book and make sure I got it all just right.  Today, I will order a copy of both books, preview them and then place the big order.  So, instead of one week as I originally said, it will probably be closer to two.  I hope that's ok with everyone but I'd rather give you a GREAT product than a fair product so I need that ordering/shipping time.  For anyone who didn't see the post and wants on the list, the small book is 7" x 7" and $26.  The larger version (which contains a few extra pictures) is 8" x 10" and $36.  I wish I could do better on the pricing but this time around, that's the best deal I could find.  All copies will be signed.

We spent Christmas up in New England with my husband's family.  It was a lovely, relaxed time with family and friends.  I found time to draw and do a little painting, as well!  Here are a few things I did while lazing around and eating too much!





I'm so excited to see what 2013 will bring.  Thank you all for your kindness and support this past year.  I love you all!  Happy New Year!

Doreen, I will miss you, too!!! I hope you are doing well and that 2013 will be a fantastic year. Thanks for checking in. You know, I have both the little books you made on my table of my absolute favorite things of all time. I still haven't filled the one that is sized for atc's. I've so far never felt worthy of it. Maybe I will "brave up" and put something in it this year. You are so talented and I hope to get to see you again at some point!! xoxo

well it looks like I'm a little behind the 8 ball to order a book...so instead I will just wait until I see your art in stores everywhere - as I'm sure the meetings with your prospective clients will go great! Can't wait to see what 2013 has in store for you, Sunny. :) I've been a little out of touch lately but from the bits and pieces that I've seen on Facebook & your blog, you're on fire! :)
