there aren't tooo many...but here are the spring inspired lulettes for you guys. And, yes, there are only 2 wee bunnies. I missed the boat on Easter. I just didn't have enough time to get everything done that I wanted:) We all know how that goes! I'll put them in my etsy shop tonight at 7:00 p.m. EST...that's New York time as always:)
thanks to annette at huckleberry arts for reminding me...where is my head!?!! my little "my baby" sculpture is in the Artisans Challenge over at Blockhead Radio and the voting ends early Monday! If you have a second to vote for me...here is the link:):) click HERE
thanks my friends!!! Hoping to have that update tomorrow night. I'll let you know soooon:):) xoxoxox...jenn
somehow, in the midst of the craziness that is called my life, I finished a few new paintings. I'll be listing these 2 in the shop later today (Friday, March 27) at 5:00 p.m. EST (new york time). sorry, no holds....but I will be offering prints of them both:)
and for fun, I'll show you a scribble sketch I did of this little couple before I started painting them. I've mentioned before how I usually don't sketch a painting before I paint...but when I do...this is what it looks like.
and here they are all painted up. I kind of love the sketch!
happy Friday everyone! oh and thank you to everyone that adopted my ladies in hats!! I didn't forget about the lulettes update:) I'll probably do it on Sunday. I'll let you know for sure tomorrow. I have boys on Spring Break to entertain:):)
a quick little note to give you the ladies names and French sayings translations. oooh la la! just a reminder that they will be in the shop promptly at 7:00 pm EST. The listings will show up one after another with about 10 seconds between. Just refresh your browser to see new ones pop up. thanks so much sweet noodle-ettes!!! xoxox
minnie "how beautiful this woman is!"
"ladies of high rank"
"the time passes so quickly"
"she quickly learnt french"
***blogger is chopping up my sentences next to the ladies! sorry it's hard to read!***
I tried to get some better photos...(it's been overcast all day and will be all week) but here are the ladies in hats! There are a total of 6 little ladies. (there is a 7th that has a little "boo boo" on her back...I may stick her in the shop at a discounted price...not sure.) Big xoxox to all your sweet comments on them in my last post. I appreciate you all so very much!! I'll have another update with the rest of my Spring inspired goodies by the weekend. Stay tuned:):)
p.s. there is still time to enter in my Artist Spotlight giveaway for a Lulette heart ring and any noodle and lou print of your choice...click HERE to visit!!
we've been eating these like crazy lately! such a cute little ball of yumminess. and such a "spring-ey" thing to eat...nothing like sitting outside, enjoying the sunshine while you peel and eat a little clementine. you want a clementine now, don't you?
I want to say THANK YOU to all of you that have visited my interview over at Raven's blog! If you haven't taken a peek yet, swing by HERE and enter in my giveaway!! You have through March 29th.
things have been busy around here...seems we are all a little behind schedule so to speak. especially due to our little flood and then the weather has been SO nice that I've spent a ton of time sitting at the park with my boys. Which is such a treat. Warm, sunny days! (it was back to chilly rain today...but I don't even care!) I had to take advantage of them and turn this black hole of a computer off and enjoy some outside time:) My nights have been spent busily working on finishing some Halloween pieces for the National Halloween Haunters Convention coming up in April. If you are in the Philadelphia area...come on by and visit the Spooky Time Jingles booth and say hi to Dani! Hooray!! She has been working so hard at all the details...thanks Dani!
and speaking of "haunters"...Henry is quite the ghost story teller! We were roasting marshmallows and making smores the other night and this little guy was telling the most dramatic and spooky stories. Oh my gosh, he is such a character...so cute. Jake was unimpressed by the ghost stories (even my fake girl scout camp/wood monster adventure didn't work very well..what!?!!)...but he loved the fire and was trying so hard to make a torch. That's super safe...right? *wink wink*
a few little happy spots in the noodle and lou home...
we are drying out...yes, we have multiple dehumidifiers, lots o' fans and lots of things still to clean and go through:) Ignoring all that right now and looking at those Spring-ey happy spots.
have I showed you my little vintage meat markers before? I LOVE these funny little guys. I saw these years ago in a Home Companion magazine in an artist feature. Well, a few months ago, as I was perusing through a wonderful antiques place... there they were! Aren't they FUN!?
Still very cold here, but the boys were off school Thursday and Friday...so we headed off to the park with some friends. 25 degrees...but the sun was shining and it felt great! What happy spots are you enjoying this week?
yes, some teeny signs of Spring are showing up in our yard! and let me tell you how excited we are to see them!! well, I was excited and then the pouring rain started on Saturday and kept on through today and as the boys were going to bed, Jake said "why are my socks all wet?".
The lower level of our house flooded. We spent the next couple hours schlepping all the furniture and tons of toys out of there. I'm a freak about mold...so I'm trying not to completely flip out. ugh. Fun night, huh? I hope my sweet little bulb, sprouting out of the dead leaves didn't float away...
my beautiful warm sun has been replaced with chilly pouring rain. so sad...but at least we had yesterday. the sun felt soooo good!! so, I'll just keep looking up...waiting for my sweet sun to return once more. How do you like that segue into my new painting?
"they remembered to keep looking up"
acrylics over vintage text on a re-purposed wooden plaque. the piece measures 20 inches long, 6 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick. i love these long skinny pieces to hang over a door or a bed!
and this 8x10 re-worked canvas. Just a silly little house with a wonky roof sitting on top of a hill:) "une belle maison"
both of these are headed over to the shop right now!
ooooh and for that good news I mentioned!?
Chrissie Grace is writing a new book about swaps and collaborations and I am participating with 12 other SUPER AMAZING artists!! I am so excited about this!!! go peek at Chrissie's blog for more details and to see who else is participating:) noodle and lou studio in a book!! I'm so tickled! Thanks Chrissie!!
okay...this is the 2nd time I've written this post, because I accidentally deleted it the first time. (so depressing!!) I'm off to my etsy and then off to enjoy the rest of my weekend. Even if it is raining:)
Shelagh is not only clever like that (and a prolific maracas player in the world's best imaginary band!), but she is a beautifully talented artist. Check out her art and her other rainbow interviews while you are there:)
