thank you so much...

I'm absolutely thrilled at what a success my shop update was!! Thank you DEARLY!! I'm so excited by all the happy new homes my little lulettes are headed to!! And...thank you so much to the lovely sisters Kari and Kijsa who wrote the sweetest post about my paintings for them!! I was blushing and beaming all at once:)

Oh, and back to the update for a minute. I have to apologize profusely because apparently a couple of you were waiting for my little French couple. I feel so badly about the whole thing. Please, Please forgive me and I promise to make more right away!! If you are wondering what happened to my little Mimi and cupcake dollie...she sold today to a local friend for her little girl's birthday!'s a surprise;)

Also, if you happened to notice, the noodle and lou shop looks a little bare. I pulled a few things to send off to a new gallery/boutique in Indiana. I'm working on some new Mother's Day paintings and I hope to have them up soon:)

Just a quick post tonight. I have a billion and one things to do...but I had to pop in and send you all hugs and kisses and huuuge thank yous!!! Thanks too for the well wishes to Henry:) He is still feeling pretty crummy and I think my older one is getting it now. yippeee. On a bright note...there was SUN today and I am PRAYING for warmer days:) I'll leave you with a picture of our newest family member...a hamster named Louise. (she's inside the wheel...and disregard the cramped cage that we were swindled into buying...we've already moved her into a nice, big comfy aquarium!) My son is turning 8 later this month and desperately wanted a hamster. Somehow we finally agreed and well...we have a little poop machine named Louise now. Why Louise? Jake named her and he said..."the name just came to me". Makes sense to me;)

Awww, Jake is just beaming! How adorable. I think Louise is a perfect hamster name. Happy early birthday Jake!

How cool that you're sending your work to a new gallery! Awesome!

What fun you will have with the new family addition! Your son is so cute. I never had to do the hamster thing. I did the gold fish, cat and dog thing though.

Sounds like you have alot going on. Hope Indiana is a great big success. I know it will be. Looking forward to seeing the new Mother's Day paintings.

Jenn, hamsters are great. When I was a kid, of course, our hamsters made a break for it and took off. Later that month I saw a whole hamster family run by and disappear under the couch. It was very cool...but a little freaky!
