Loving What I Do

When my husband and I have two days together it is always jam-packed. Working full time and cramming in all the to-do's and wish lists on the weekends is always a challenge.

You're probably wondering why I am not posting more illustrations-not because I am not working on them but because I am juggling several projects at the moment and the current illustration I am working on involves much research. As always, I never know what the end result will be until it is finished but I am very excited about it and hope you'll enjoy the finished work too.

Yesterday I went to the Old Market to one of my favorite stomping grounds for antiques and thrift goodies and picked up some ephemera. What a great time I had! The gorgeous wallpaper is from the lovely Donna. I had to fight the crowds because the Farmer's Market and the Summer Arts festival was in full swing, but it was well worth it don't you think?

After the Market my husband and I went and purchased a ton of stone for our new landscaping project and are off to purchase another ton today. We're making progress. I also had time to plant two more delphiniums that I lost in the cold snap in March.

Hi Maggie, the bunnies are created from paper clay ~ I love it! They air dry for a few days, I gesso them and paint. I had to add a little antiquing gel and Martha Stewart's ultrafine glitter as a finish....xxoo, Dawn

Those are lovely! The crochet cross just reminded me of one I used to have when I was a little girl, that I kept inside my zip-around Bible. Wow, I had forgotten all about it...thanks for the memory flash...
