Mail Me Art Project

A little while ago I took part in the "Mail Me Art Project".
It's a cool project where artists mail in an envelope that IS the art. The art is on the outside! I always have loved to dress up letters and packages. Although, when I send out my artwork to buyers I usually forgo the artistry on the packaging because I don't want anything to slow down the packages arrival through the post office :) I leave all the fun stuff for the inside in those packages.

I decided I'd make my envelope a painting of Little Red Riding Hood with Mr. Wolf. They are holding up a sign with the mailing address on it :) I thought it was pretty cool when they chose my art to use in a blog post about the event. You can see it HERE.

Everyone's envelope art is going to be shown in an art show in London England. You can keep up with the festivities on their facebook page.

I have my fingers crossed that they will add mine to the MAIL ME ART BOOK. I will keep you posted if they do!

New prints! Some on wood too!

You guys are the best! I love each and every comment I read from you all.
I just wanted to let you know that I have added some new prints to my etsy shop. Some of my older prints will be phased out. I won't be reprinting some of the older designs, so get those while you can if there are some you've had your eye on. I have been adding brand new designs quite regularly. If you have missed out on a painting of mine you might be able to get it in print form.

I have also added SUPER CUTE mini wood prints! I really love them. Cute and small like little cookies :)

Wishing you all a sun-shiny weekend!

Check out my etsy shop for these items.

Come on Spring!

Remember a little while ago I thought Spring had sprung....and then it snowed? Well this time I think Spring is on it's way.
I am looking forward to going out without my big winter coat.
This is my newest painting. A spring time fairy. She is flying around planting seeds for Spring time flowers to bloom.

Spring time fairy is up for grabs on ebay.

Well, I didn't get the condo. My bid was "the lowest, and considered kind of funny compared to the other offers"....which is weird, since I offered them their asking price. Apparently the condo sold for $20,000 OVER their asking price. So, I guess my offer was kind of funny :)
I'm starting to feel a bit like a little fish swimming with a bunch of big sharks!
It's a bummer. I had myself living there in my mind's eye. I knew where all my furniture would go, I could see the cats sun bathing by the window. Then *poof* gone. Oh well, I'm quite happy where I am so that's okay with me :)

I thought I'd show you a couple of pages of my little sketchbook just for fun.
I noticed this was a project I wanted to do in March '09! So many projects, so little time.
This is an idea for a rolled pencil case with a patch of my art on it:

Plus just some fun faces:

Have a great night!

HI beautiful people!
I've been busy lately! But I'm kind of spinning my wheels. If anything actually comes to fruition I will tell you :)
For instance, I am bidding on a condo tomorrow....again....
Real estate here is played out like ebay, but on steroids. You see, for some crazy reason, here in Toronto you put a "bid" in to buy a home and the highest bid gets it. (Well in downtown Toronto anyway) It's not just any auction, it's a "blind auction", so you don't know what anyone else is bidding. I have a tendency to bid too low and lose out :P
Ah well, one of these days I'll snag one at a good price, right?
So there you go. Things like that have been taking a lot of my time, but nothing really comes of it. Hopefully this time I will be lucky.

I thought I'd paint a babushka with little baby foxes. I guess they are called a kit, cub or pup. I like baby :)
Babushka with baby foxes is up for grabs on ebay.
Hugs to all!
