Everything seems awesome right now. My long wait for my twin sister celenajustine to move into my neighborhood is finally at a close (they move in tomorrow!). My daughter can now grow up with her cousin Max just a short walk away.
I finally have gotten back into making ornaments, prepping for the Christmas season, and the last one I made turned out better than I'd hoped and is inspiring me to try more things with similar designs. (It's always nice when an art project begets other art projects). Methinks I will title this one Briar Rose. It makes me think of Mackintosh roses and faerie tales and Trina Schart Hyman's art, so that's pretty boss.
AND...my work got featured in THREE treasuries this week!!!
I was going to be excited about just one, but 3 is even better. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and my little shoppe will start to make itself profitable. Thanks so much to the Etsy sellers who chose my pieces for their treasuries!
It really IS an honor just to be nominated!
