Frida and a movie trailer

Today Frida is surrounded by all her bird friends. This painting has collage elements and an antique wash.
"Frida with Birds Collage" is up for grabs on ebay.

In other news, my boyfriend Morgan was the supervising animator on the new Tim Burton Movie called "9". He worked MANY long hours on this one! (Luckily I work many long hours too, so it worked out fine. lol)
The movie isn't in theaters until 9-9-09, so you will have to wait for it. Until then, here is the trailer:

Lounging with the kitties

It's the kind of weather that just makes you want to lounge with the kitties. That's what I've been doing. Opie loves to take naps with me and sleep in my arms, and kiss me on the cheek. He really does! I will have to find a way to video tape it and show you. He is such a cuddly boy!
In my cat cuddling mood, I painted this newest Frida painting Lounging Frida. She up up for grabs on ebay.
Gotta run and go hug Opie and Lily.

Glittery snow outside

Today I woke up to the sun shining and beautiful glittery snowflakes gently floating outside my window. I went out onto my balcony and took this picture to show you.
Since it is so chilly outside, I thought it would be a good day to stay in and work on my bird project.
Here is the colorful update:

Hope you all are having a sparkly day!

Red Riding Hood gets a kitten

How is everyone doing? We got a LOT of snow here today! WOW! It didn't stop me from going to the post office. What would my day be without a trip to the post office? :)
I have a new painting up for grabs on ebay. This time Lil' Red has a new kitten! Looks like Wolfie doesn't know how to handle this! I think they can all be friends.

My little helper

I got my HUGE shipment of shipping supplies today. (That always makes me laugh! They have to ship me the shipping boxes, seems sort of redundant doesn't it?).
Anyways, Opie was right in there tearing the packing to pieces. He made himself a little cave out of it. Then he kept jumping in one of the empty boxes, so I cut a little door in it and flipped it upside down to make him a house. He's had fun running in and out of it all day! He will run past Lily and spook her then go straight into his little house and take swipes at her as she passes by.

Yay! I won Suze's draw!

Am I the luckiest gal in town or what? I won Suze's draw the the incredibly sweet angel doll!!!
Suze is doing a series of the most cutest little angel dolls. Go see them on her blog!
Thanks so much Suze!

gift giving to save animals

Today on my way to the post office, I spotted a little stand set up in the middle of the mall.
It was the World Wildlife Federation. They had all kinds of different little stuffed animals lined up across the desk. I went over to see what it was all about. The WWF was selling the little stuffed animals for $40 and the $40 went towards saving that specific animal. COOL! I think it is a perfect gift to give someone! You get the toy plus a little "adoption certificate" and info on that animal. I got the caribou : I just thought I'd share this idea with you. You can see on the USA WWF website more info on this gift. Here is the CANADIAN WWF site. I guess it is too late to get them from the site for Christmas, but they make a cute gift for any occasion.

All that Jazz

Remember the cool Princess Phone I got a week or so ago? Well, in it was a little catalogue of other COOL RETRO stuff! I went to the crosley website and fell in love with this old fashion radio! It got delivered yesterday and I have been playing Toronto Jazz FM on it all day. Lily loves it! She got right up there and was listening to the jazz! Notice my Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer figurines? Hee Hee. She was nice and didn't knock those down.
Hope you are all keeping warm! Baby it's cold outside!

Cool fall days makes us sleepy

The weather sure feels like winter around here! Today when I came home from the post office (my daily routine), I couldn't find where Opie was. Usually he greets me at the door. Then I went into the living room, and there he was, all snuggled up under the covers!
I had to do a nice snuggley painting up for grabs on Ebay tonight.

These are a couple of mini original paintings on canvas board (frame not included) that can be found in my etsy shop!

Well it's that time of the year again! Time to dress up the cats in their Halloween costumes!
They are getting wise to this tradition and not as willing to wear a funny hat. Opie tore his hat off before I got the picture, but he still has his cape on! He is a wizard this year (psst, really it was a witch costume, but I told him it was a wizard hee hee). Lily was a witch again this year. She loves her green curls!
Wishing you all a safe and happy halloween!
The more I look at these pictures, the more I see how much Lily really dislikes this costume! Next year she will be a princess. I know she will like that. :)

Somethin' sweet

Well, I did it. I caved. I ate candy. I went for 4 months without candy. I was doing so well, but everyday I passed the Halloween candy section I was tempted. Today I bought a bag of Tootsie Rolls. I think I've ate about 20 of them :(
Now I feel gross from eating so much sugar. I think I have learned my lesson. I'm back on the no candy diet.
So here is something sweet that won't raise your insulin levels :)

I painted this one on a wooden canvas that has a thick undercoat of modeling paste. Lots of sweet collage papers too!
It is up for grabs on ebay HUGS!
