catching up...

Hello my dear friends! Hope your Easter weekends were lovely. The boys had a fun Easter Egg Hunt. Even though it was 40 degrees...not too Spring-ey...at least there was no snow on the ground!!!




We also colored lots of Easter Eggs! Henry went for the "let's plop 'em all in at once" method. It actually worked quite nice:)




I finally had a bit of time to catch up on MOST of my blog reading last night! The more blogs that I find that I love...the harder it is to keep up with them all!! Does anyone else have this problem. I'm sure you must! There is just so much beautiful eye candy out there in blog land and I can get QUITE lost in it!!! What did we do just a few short years ago!? It is absolutely amazing the fabulous people you can connect with!! 2 of these fabulous people happened to have asked me to create some special paintings for them. After falling out of my chair...because they are just that fabulous...and agonizing over what to paint...I'm so O.C.D about these things...I came up with the following: Of course I should mention that these are for the oh so inspiring and super talented and lovely sisters Kari and Kijsa ! I'm sure you already know and love them!!! And if you don't...well, run right over to their blog and etsy shop and prepare to be deeeelighted.



Thanks so much you 2 sweet peas for being so patient and fabulous:)
I've actually been working on several commission orders over the past few weeks. I absolutely love doing commission work and creating extra special pieces for special people...but you may have noticed (she says with complete sarcasm) my ebay and etsy shops have been sorely neglected;) I do have a fresh batch of Lulette houses almost ready to list and a couple new floral paintings! I'll be sneaking over to the shop tomorrow night...Thursday...to add a few things. I know. SO last minute and I do apologize for that!!! Don't worry I will give you much better notice for the next update and I'll make it a nice, big, juicy one:)
So...maybe I will see you tomorrow night!!
thursday
march 27
9:00 p.m. EST
Happy Wednesday everybody!! xoxoxo...jenn

The new paintings are wonderful! They are very lucky girls.
I'm glad you all had a nice easter. We had some egg dunking going on at our house too. Alex couldn't grasp the concept of the little wire egg holder doohickey so he just dropped the eggs in. I'll have to post the pictures of his blue hands!

Love the Kari and Kijsa paintings, Jenn. Kijsa bought my Counting Sheep painting and wants me to work on another for her, so maybe our paintings will be hanging out together. :)

Okay, no new LOST tonight so I'll be ready for those cute little houses tonight!!!

I agree about blogging...it has taken over my world as well. I am usually such a lurker but have decided to start telling everyone how much I enjoy their work. The blog world has definitely made it easier for us artists to get our stuff out there. I love it!!

Carmen said...

Yes! I can totally relate! There so, so many blogs I love to read. I struggle to keep up.

Your new pieces are great and I can't wait to see the new Lulettes!!! Hopefully one of these days I'll be quick enough to actually get one!

Have a great day!

xo,

Carmen

Somehow I missed scrolling down to see the beautiful paintings last time I was here. I love them! So fun to see blondies--from a house of blode girls! They would be great prints (hint-hint!)
