100 !!!!!

Hooray for noodle and lou!! Over the weekend I reached the 100 mark in sales in my etsy shop!! I was sooo excited and want to say a billion thanks to all my wonderful supporters! Thank you for making my experience so extra special on etsy. This is a big big deal to me and I appreciate it beyond words. On my listings I always say..."Thank you for helping me to live my dream...", and I truly mean it:)

Now...did you all finish your shopping and wrapping and hyperventilating (oh, that was just me?) and more wrapping and shipping this weekend?? I did!!! YIPPPPPEEEE. All my packages went off into postal land today and I am SO relieved!!! I'm so horrible with capturing all the action with my camera...but I did get a couple snaps of these little gifts;)
Really just the tip of the to speak! You aren't seeing the mounds of stickers, paper, shred, boxes, ribbons...etc. etc. But I did it! Can you tell that I am soooo excited to have this DONE!? After a weekend of nothing but wrapping...I don't have much to I have a few pictures of my newest painting! I just listed my JANUARY addition to my mini month series! You can find "The January Girls" at auction on ebay here! I'll need to be a little more thorough next time...but here is a quick journey in the life of one of my collage paintings:)

1. canvas is prepped and painted black...then it's idea time ...roughly painted in ivory

2. Idea is growing...

3. outline and let's add some hair and clothes!

4. facial features are forming!

5. totally missed a few steps of fine tuning and more layers of paint...and VOILA!

6. don't forget the sides!!

Have a happy Tuesday!! Christmas is here in 1 week!!!
