Remember those prefabs?

I finally took some exterior shots of Dave's project. Now that I am listing them, I thought it was time. You can see the Quest building, downtown from here. I like how they turned out. There were a few things I would change, but I did not have the privilege to work with the architect this time. Lets pray for some contracts. We lowered the prices and I am listing it myself. I get to hold it open on Saturdays. I pray for 9 contracts in 30 days. Lets go people, get your tax credits now!!! I also posted some new pictures on the Traverse blog.

Designing a kitty bed

I am using a couple of fabrics I received for my birthday from pea of Whimsical Endeavors to make a kitty bed. I have to make to trip to JoAnns for the cushion this week to work on this. I already washed the fabric, so that it will be washable. The kitty material will be the top/or bottom, the polka dotts are the sides. Black & white polka dot welt cording and some white beaded material on one side and lace on the other. What kind of lace is that, anyone know? Gingum came to mind, but I do not know what gingum is. lol Pop quiz, what other than art college do I have 2 years education? No it is not real estate either.

I have been knitting here and there. Some during camping and here and there. But, I have about 6 to 8 new ipod purses that just need their felted ball and strap attached. One of these days I will finish them all and get them out there. It is hard to get motivated to do something that does not bring money. Not now anyway. When I actually sell my patterns in a book, maybe that will bring money. *smirk* A boutique in Aspen looks pretty good to me. The rich can appreciate fine quality one of a kinds. :)

Painting & Schoolwork

I never know where to post my paintings. Art by Jenny or Wonders of Whimsy...sheesh. I have more follows on Wonders, so I post a lot over there. Anyway, if you missed out..I painted a 8 paintings. Trying to focus on painting a lot while I do schoolwork. Wouldn't it be nice to make money from your art? I am starting to sound redundant. lol

What's on your john?

This is a picture of my guest bath. Right now it is where I store and clean my paint brushes. I used to use the laundry room, but since the kitties are in there, I had to move. The small painting is the one I just did last night. I crackled it today.

I could play, do you recognize any artist here? Hmmm.... The angel doll is by Cotton Pickin Ranch and the love heart is by Birchberry Farms.

Story Board Family

I finished up on my story board. Really, it is just practice for me. I am learning how to draw cartoon characters. I forgot how easy they are. For me anyway. I drew Garfield and other characters as a child. I never use a grid and rarely used an eraser. Maybe this is my true calling after all. That is good, because I feel more confident about illustrating childrens books now!
