even more so when it is populated by such adorable critters :)

Celebration Day, Sale~Embracing Weekend

The little shop has just reached 1,000 sales...(!)

(insert happy little dance with muffled cries of joy as to not wake up my hedgehog of a boyfriend)

So in light of this incredibly humbling event, of which I am in complete awe and gratefulness, I would like to take this as an opportunity to say a thousand thank-you's to everyone who has adopted something I have created, be it a painting, a doll, a print or anything else I have come up with. It really, really means much more to me than any of you will ever know.

A thousand thank-you's to everyone who has ever read this blog, your love and support are more important to me than words can ever describe.

A thousand thank-you's to my Hedgehog, for all his love, encouragement and willingness to share in all the make~believe that is my life.

A celebration is in order, you say?
I say an even better way to go about this is by Sale(embracing)!!!
So starting a few minutes from now and up to Cyber Monday night (November 29th), everything in the shop will be 25% off.

I am off to get some (much needed) sleep!

A Craving For Hugs

An adorable rascal of a hedgehog came to live with us yesterday.
I am utterly in love with his clever looking dark eyes, and his arms-wide-open
is almost as if he is longing to be held at all times...
(I spent the better half of the afternoon holding him close, so I should know)
And his furry (rather than thorny) nature makes him quite the ideal companion, now
that crisp, winter-y days are getting closer :)

Message In A Bottle

Here's a new painting that I wanted to share with you today;
Message In A Bottle, acrylics on canvas, 16 x 12 in.

I do have a soft spot for pirate girls, and I just love the slightly forlorn look in this one's eyes!
Happy November, everyone!

The Love Bandits

I am really, really excited to finally be able to share with you a painting from the new collection that I am currently working on...

I have already finished about four pieces, and it really is turning out to be quite the assemblage:)
I love the beginnings of each new collection, especially when I have done several pieces,
and I get to see them one next to the other up on the wall...
(It reminds me of a minuscule version of an exhibition)
{and a very private one, for that matter, now that I think about it :)}

This will be an assembly of outcasts, runaways, pirate-y gals,
curious and enigmatic characters,
little ghosts and vintage toys.

And without further ado, here is the first one:

The Love Bandits, acrylics on canvas, 16 x 12 in.

A White Rabbit

...and of course, this one couldn't be missing from this collection...
I have always felt deeply for this character, and
I must admit to having a slight obsession myself with being punctual...
(ironically enough, I seldom wear a watch )
But I would love a pair of fluffy white ears any time of the year :)

A White Rabbit, acrylics on round canvas, 12 x 12 in.

the loveliest of weekends to all of you!

The Blue Caterpillar

The Blue Caterpillar, acrylics on canvas, 10 x 12 in.

Another favorite character from Alice in Wonderland.
I have two more paintings from this collection to share with you in the next few days,
and then they will be making their way to the little shop :)

Where did the week go?
(I think mine was spent painting and doll-making, at least for the most part.
I seem to lose track of time when I am creating...)
