off to the gardens...

Hi everyone! Still running like Louise on her wheel...but of course I wouldn't have it any other way;) Well...the way where you have several uninterrupted hours to yourself would be good too...ha! Finishing up some special treats to show you all. One is the sweetest commission piece involving a mermaid that I am soo enjoying painting. No sneak peeks yet because the sweet people that ordered it haven't seen it yet and they are being very patient. It is the sort of painting that you just get really involved in and sit and look at and work on more...etc. Know what I mean?? Also am finishing up a couple sets of commissioned lulettes too. Always love making those!! Other treats are some more funky french couples and house lulettes and card sets for you:) But first... My Mom is in town! She got in late last night and will be here for a few days! She hasn't been here since Halloween, so we are very excited to have her here:)

(sold painting from my 2007 collection)

And the "cherry" on top of the ice cream cone is...Tomorrow, we are all heading to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for Sakura Matsuri !! It is supposed to be super chilly and possibly rainy...so cross all your fingers for a peek of the sun for us;) This celebration is New York City's "rite of Spring"...TONS of flowering cherry blooms!!! eeeeeeek....I can't wait!!!! look at all this wonderful land to explore!!




I'll take lots of pictures to share with you all. I hope you are not getting completely sick of me...I know I keep saying "I'm so busy!"...aren't we all!!!?? I'm just being pulled in a few extra directions than I normally am with our move to Chicago sneaking up on me and my husband traveling so much. You guys are so supportive. I really appreciate each and every one of you:) I received some of the BEST packages yesterday that I can't wait to share with you and I have lots of blog reading and hellos to catch up on. But for now...I'm off to the gardens!!!! yaaaaahooooo!!!! Happy Happy weekend to you all...

Oh, and I was thinking of you when I did my polka dot girl! I thought "Jenn would like these black and white polka dots, what would she do at the waist?" Thanks for the inspiration!

hi jeNn!

You lucky duck! I hope the weather held out for you! Can't wait to see some pics.

A mermaid?! I can't wait to see her!

I received my lil' lulettes on Friday, I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! Thank you!

I'm excited for your next shop update - I guess there won't be too many more until after your move to Chi-town.

Take care,

Jenn, yes I'm so busy, too. And I'm sending you tons and tons of good vibes for your move. I know exactly how taxing it is having just gone through it. Oh...I just made my second clay sculpture (an angel of course. The first was a mermaid)! It looks pretty shabby but I can't help be proud. You are my clay inspiration!
Have a super day...
