good things first...

okay...2008 has thrown me a couple curve balls so far. BUT...good things to mention first!!!
Have you visited Suz at aah! surprise, delight, & joy yet? Her new Valentine birds and hearts are so cute and since I'm obsessed with birds AND hearts, I wanted to share them with you:)

I think they are so cute to put on your Valentine tree or to use as a gift topper! Right!?
Click on her shop name above to peek at her adorable shop!!!


I also have to tell you of 3 artist friends from ebay that have opened etsy shops! YAY etsy!!

Anna's Dreams by Lillian Adorable collages and paintings!!! Lillian is the kindest person and just started a brand new blog as well. Stop by and say hello to her here !!

kitty107 funky, raw folk art by Tracey Ann Finley! I just LOVE everything she does and she is equally sweet as she is talented!

and primoriginals I know I've mentioned her before but the wonderful and talented Liz is making the cutest new have to go peek!!


I completely rearranged the boys playroom and my "studio" space!! is so organized and pretty. It, of course, will never stay this I took pictures last week (prior to the camera woes).

A little peek into my world. I spend more time in this tiny space with the roof line right at my head:) I do love it though. And now that everything has a happy little home...I love it even more!! It's amazing what I can get done in this space...with light saber fights going on right behind me;) We live in the teeniest of houses and it's been my mission from day 1 to use every square inch!! If I could only figure out a tidy way to keep all my paper scraps. Right now I have them on that huge tray to the left of my desk and then 6 drawers of them under my desk!! Anyone have ideas to share?? Do tell!!

Okay....a brief mention of the yucks:

Phone problems (this is driving me craaaaaazy. I can hear everyone...they can't hear me...grrrrr), camera trouble, flat tire, found out we are moving this summer (to a different state... Chris' contract is up here) and speaking of my hubby...he fell while jogging and severely sprained his ankle. hellllooooo. We had our cabbage and black eyed peas on New Years Day for good luck too!! SO, tomorrow is a new day and I'll just look forward to that!!

Thanks for visiting me... hugs to you all!

don't forget Friday the 4th is the last day for my etsy 25% off sale!!!

Thanks for sharing Jenn. I love all those new etsians. I too live in a very small house and my studio space is in my boys playroom as well. Hope your luck changes for the better!

Oh Jenn, you have a lot to think about. Keep hanging in there and remember we are here for you. Your studio and surrounding spaces look super. I, personally, am in love with those clear Sterlite shoe boxes for my supplies, and they do come in lots of other sizes. Keep up the good work, I just love your art.

Your playroom looks wonderful! Could I get you to come and organize mine?
That is some crummy luck you've been having, but I'm sure it will improve...just hold on to that positive outlook of yours.

Thanks for having me on your blog; I am honored, truly. I owe you a debt of gratitude as well. The two items you have shown both sold today. You are a blessing!

Your work space is fantastic and so darn orderly! I love that you get to create in the same place your boys play - what great energy!

Gosh you have a lot on your plate these days - sending good thoughts your way and lots of hearts too!
