Show Me #105

Did anyone get the memo about Christmas being only 5 days away?  I just found out about it.  LOL
Time certainly does fly, doesn't it!
And since Christmas is this coming Tuesday. . . .I want you to be able to enjoy your family and friends and run the SMT fun for TWO ENTIRE WEEKS!  I have a feeling that some of the posts are going to be showcasing new TOYS that you will be receiving!  Just a guess!  And I could totally be wrong. . . .but we'll see!  And so, instead of a single free image, the lucky winner will receive TWO free images from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop!  How ya like them apples?!?!?!?!?!  Sound good?  Yep, works for me.

Now. . . thanks to everyone for playing along last week.  Fabby images, projects and posts.  But, who was the lucky winner you ask?  Well that was the sassy enabler
Cec
I say enabler, because she is passing on the tradition of crafting to her ever so sweet granddaughter Miss Emily.  Did you see the amazing photo of the Christmas gift Cec is giving her.  I wish it had been a 'virtual' image, because I wanted to leaf through what was in that box.  I don't craft. . . .but I was jealous.  It looks like a great bunch of crafting goodies!
Cec. . . .I'll credit your account this morning.  Have fun shopping!!!!!  Thanks for sharing a photo of this special gift with us.

Well, with all the business of the Christmas holiday and New Years quickly approaching, I'm sorry to say that I don't have much to share with you in the way of a new illustration this week.  So with Christmas less than a week away, I wanted to share a little something 'Christmas-y' with you.
This is my sweet little Christmas tree.  I know. . .the ornaments are a little too big for it, but oh well.  Maybe next year, I'll get a little bit bigger one.  But Bella, Bandit and I like it.  :)  So we're just going to go with it.


Now. . . .  Did you happen to notice the beautiful little snowflake ornaments proudly hung on my itty-bitty tree!  Well, these were a FABULOUS surprise that I received in the mail this week and I couldn't wait to hang them on my tree!  They are from my sweet and sassy design team member, Miss Judy!  I hope I'm not embarrassing you by posting this Judy, but you'll get over it, I promise. (wink)
Her mother made these and I felt very HONORED to receive not one. . . .but SIX of these little stunners in the mail. . . .and that's not all I got.

She also sent me these FABULOUS red gloves (how did she know red was my favorite color) and a super sassy Christmas card!  I don't receive 'happy mail' very often and this was more on the side of ECSTATIC mail!  
And as all of you know, I don't like cold weather, but I have to tell you that I can't wait to put these babies on and go and show them off.  Even if it's just out to the dog park.  LOL
And then look at the little cutie-patootie card that she sent to Zach!  Super sweet and also unexpected!  He didn't want it to get messed up at his apartment (how could that happen with 18 year olds. LOL), so I get to proudly display it at mine.  LOVE IT. . . .
Thank you SO MUCH JUDY!  You're the best-est!

Now. . . . 
it's your turn!  Show us something!  Christmas tree, snow, wrapping gifts, cats, dogs, crafting, baking, cleaning, family, New Years party?  Anything goes  . . . .we all know that.  With the extended two week SMT fun, you'll have until January 2nd 2013 (I know, it sounds funny, doesn't it), to get your photo or blogs linked up to play along and be entered for the random drawing for TWO FREE images from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop.

So, get busy. . . .and be sure to check out the 50% TWO DAY SALE that ends Friday, December 21st!  You don't want to miss that! 
So, until next year. . .. 
MERRY CHRISTMAS
and 
A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

SHOW ME #104

Hey all you nosey ladies.  Hope you're having a fabulous week.  I don't know about you, but I TOTALLY ready for the weekend!  And can you believe it!  We are just 12 days away from Christmas. . . .let the countdown begin!

Thanks to everyone for playing along with me last week.  I sure did enjoy all the fun posts and photos.  I know it's a busy time, but I hope that you will be able to play along again this week.
So, who was the lucky winner of the free image from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop?  That was my sweet friend. . . .

Betty
Congrats girl!  I LOVE this photo!  Betty actually had two photos, but I chose this one to showcase for her win b/c I LOVE the expressions on the kids faces.  Especially the little boy.  I see an image coming with that one. . . .just saying!
Betty, I'll credit your account this morning for your win.  Hope you'll have time to play along again this week.

I also have a correction from last week.  One of my good buddies, Shirley Swoope noticed that the pictures that I took of the apartment, didn't quite add up.  I took a couple of them 'before' the sofa was delivered and didn't even notice it.  hehehehe.  Yep.  That's me.  You'd think I'd pay more attention to details, but I guess not.  LOL  So, below is a corrected photo of the apartment with the sofa where it is suppose to be.  Did anyone else notice it and just not mention it.  :)  Thanks for keeping me straight Shirley.  :)


Well, I don't mean to be lame or weak, but I just didn't have time to work on much of anything new this week.  I had a special project that I was working on for a client and it took up most of my week.  I certainly didn't mind.  I thoroughly enjoyed doing it for her, but I can't show it to you, because . . . .well, I just can't show you!  That's all!  But I can, perhaps later. I know. . . .mean!  Oh well.  But I'm doing my best to get something new for you by the first of the week.


And. . . .now it's your turn. . . .well, I really didn't take a turn, but you know what I mean.  We want you to show us what you have up your sleeve.   It's real easy to play along and it doesn't even have to be crafty. . .and by entering, you'll have a chance to win a free image to the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop.  Just link your photo or blog by 5 PM EST, December 19th to be entered in the random drawing. Come on. . . .you know you want too!
Happy Showing!!!

Show Me. . . .#103

Well, we are officially in to the last month of the year and Christmas is quickly approaching!  You've heard that. . . right?!
Do you have all of your Christmas shopping done?  House and tree all decorated?  Christmas cards sent out?  Well, if you do. . . .you're ahead of me, that's for sure. But I'm doing pretty well.  Only have a few more Christmas cards to send out.  So I'm happy about that.
Before you know it, it will be the year 2013!  Almost seems like something from a science fiction novel, doesn't it.  :)  At least it does to me.

Well, enough of that.  Let's get to the fun stuff.  Lots of fabulous entries last week!  Each one fun and creative in their own way.  Loved them all!  Thanks for playing along.  So, who was the lucky winner of the FREE image from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop?  That was. . . . .
Ann!
Did you all see her beautiful cards?  I couldn't believe she actually thought her cards were simple!  W-h-a-t?!?!?!?!?!?!  NOT! Check them out.

CONGRATULATIONS Ann!!! I'll get that Free image credited to your account.

So. . . . .what have I been doing?  Well, I haven't done much coloring and sketching, except for some special projects, so I don't have much to show you in the 'art' department, so I thought I'd show you some new photos of my apartment.  I FINALLY got a sofa last Saturday.  I was THRILLED!  Now, Bella, Bandit and I can all sit in one place in the living room and not be so crowded!  So, are you ready for 'part' of the tour?

Photo #1:  This is two views of my living room.  The one on the left is looking back towards the kitchen from my Office/Studio door.  The yellow chest was a FAB find at a local consignment shop and is PERFECT for storage.  You know. . .I like things to look nice, but they have to be functional as well.  The quilt that you see above (in both photos) was one that I made years ago when I was in what I used to call my 'country/domestic' phase.  LOL  I thought it would be perfect for art, since I'm working on a budget.
The photo on the right shows another view from the kitchen looking back towards my office.
I love clean and simple.  Yep, that's me.

Photo #2:  The photo to the left is of a washstand that my dad made for me (he made one for my sister as well), years ago.  The 'top' part isn't on it, but I thought it was perfect as an accent table for the lamp that I purchased. . . .and check out that fun bicycle clock.  I got that at Home Goods a couple of weeks ago.  Needed something for in the living room and didn't want to hang one on the wall.  Besides, I couldn't find one that I liked.  LOL
The picture to the right is another view of the Living Room, but more to the left.  The Red shelving that I'm using as a entertainment center was also purchased at the same consignment shop.  Blythe's husband, Chris drilled a hole for me to run my cords through for my DVD player, iPod/radio/clock and the cable wires.  Had to hide those little boogers as that really does drive me nuts!
The quilt squares that you see framed above the entertainment center, are from a quilt that my grandmother Reba made.  It was falling apart and wasn't able to be used, so I framed five of them in t-shirt boxes that I purchased from Micheals for $5 each.  There are also two to the left and right of the yellow hutch if you look in photo #1.


Photo #3:  And finally we come to my office/studio.  Of course, this is where I spend most of my time, so I wanted it to be clean, neat, simple and functional.  I separated my workspace from my computer space and purchased a chair, also from Home Goods for the computer desk.  It works out quite nicely.
Had to have matching rugs and pillows for the chairs though.  That would have drove me nuts!
It gets great sunlight and is on the far end of the apartment, so it's nice to be able to shut the door when I'm done in there for the day.. . . 

Whatcha think?  Hope I didn't bore you too much.  I've taken some photos of it decorated for Christmas and will share those another time.  

So. . . .  what do you have going on this week?  We'd love to see.  Grab those cameras and get busy, because we want to see.  You'll have until 5 PM EST, December 12th., to link up your photo or blog to be entered in the random drawing for the FREE image. . . . It's fun being nosey.  It's just in our nature.  So come join in the fun!

What are you waiting for. . . . ??????
GET BUSY!!!!

Well, I've been under the weather this past week.  Cold/flu for the second time so far.  UGH!  I HATE being sick because I just don't like laying around unless I'm watching a movie.  hehehe.  Feeling much better, but still taking it easy.  I hope that all of you are staying well and if you're feeling under the weather as well, you are on the mend soon.
I did work on a little something yesterday afternoon while I was getting familiar with my new sofa.  Didn't want to give you too much of a peek, but here he is.  I'm sure you can figure out WHO it is, but I bet you'll never guess what he is doing.  :)  I know, I know, it isn't much to go on. . .but you just have to settle for what you get.  LOL

THANKSGIVING DAY!
Are you ready?  Well, if you're not, I hope you're going to someone else's house to eat.  LOL  I'm as ready as I'll ever be.  We had my family Thanksgiving this past Saturday at my sisters house.  I think I gained a few pounds while I was there, especially after the pecan pie!  And on top of that, I came home with lots of goodies. Mind you, I'm not complaining.  I LOVE me some leftovers!  Especially from my mom and sister.  Yum!  Yum!

Well, enough about that!  I want to say a BIG thank you to everyone who took the time to play along in last weeks SMThursday fun!  You all certainly have been busy. . . that's for sure.

Have fun shopping!

Well, I have been really busy this week. Lots of deadlines, on the hunt for stuff for my apartment, visiting family, errands. . . .you get the idea.  But somewhere in there, I did find time to widdle out a couple of new images. . .and here is one that will be in the shop soon.  Almost done.  I think!?  Not sure if I'm liking it and this is the 2nd time that I've colored her.  Whatcha think?
We shall see.  Look for her in some shape or form in the shop soon.

First off, I'd like to say a BIG FAT THANK YOU to everyone past and present who have taken out the time to play along each week.  I know that it takes work and as much as I hate blogging, I really appreciate that you all take time out of your week to play.  So thank you!  Can't wait until we hit 200!  Man. . . .we're getting old, aren't we.

Show ME #99

Hello my sassy friends. . . .I hope you're having a fantastic week.  It's been super cold here in Virginia and I'm looking forward to the weekend.  Suppose to be around 70° on Sunday!  Can I just tell you that I am looking forward to that!  I don't react well to cold weather and the older I get. . .the worse it seems to be.  It seems that I can never get warm from November to March!  Might have to think about retiring somewhere warmer.  UGH!  I know, I know, it's fall/winter, but good grief.
So, are you ready for some more fun this week!  I know I am. The posts last week were wonderful!  I'm sure I've told you. . .but I always did enjoy 'Show and Tell' when I was a kid.  :)  Come on, admit it.  You did too!

Well, who was that lucky winner of the free image from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop?  That was my sweet friend. . . . . .
Shirley
I swear it wasn't rigged! It was a random drawing!  I promise!
That's two weeks in a row!  Girl. . . . You should play the lottery!  And share with me!  Did you all see her post about making the cloud(s) template.  You should definitely check it out!  Fun and very informative.
Shirley, I will credit your account this morning.  I'm sure you'll find something in the shop to purchase.

And what am I working on you ask?  Well, the last couple of weeks, I've been lazy.  Well, what I'd consider lazy. . . .but I FINALLY have something in the way of a drawing to share with you this week.  Now. . . .keep in mind, this was what I started with.  I have since 'changed' it up a little.  He will be available in the store by weekend, so keep an eye out.  You all know how I LOVE ME some snowmen.  So this little guy will be the first to make his appearance.  What do you think?

I hope that you'll join in the fun this week.  As one of the 'frequent' posters stated, it's a 'no pressure' post and great fun!  Just link up your blog or photo by 5 PM EST, Wednesday, November 14th to be entered in the random drawing for the free image give away.  It's tons of fun!  Won't you join us!
Happy Picture taking!

Hope you're having a good week!  We got off luckily with Hurricane Sandy coming through.  The lights flickered a few times, but other than the gusts of wind and rain, we were fine.  I would like to say that for those of you that have been impacted by the storm, please know that I am praying for you!

So, did you all have fun last week, being nosey and looking over the shoulders of the ladies to see what they were working on?  I know I did.  Such fabulous projects, cards and photos.  Loved them all!
Thank you to all who entered!  We had a blast and hope that you'll play along again this week.

Now on to the fun part.  Who was the lucky winner of the SMT #97 and the recipient of a digi image from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop?
Well, that was none other than my good and oh so SASSY friend
Shirley
Congrats girl!  You all have got to go over and check out all of the other fun photos.  Not just this one.  For those of you that frequent my PCP group, you'll know what this photo is all about.
Shirley, I think I know your email address, so I'll credit your account this morning.


Well, with all the weather issues, trying to get ready, having a neck/headache I didn't get a lot of new stuff done this week.  So I'm cheating, being lazy, whatever you want to call it.  But it's my blog and my Show Me Thursday, so I'm allowed!  hehehehe.

This is the first part of my lazy post.  I did create one new image this week that was on the top of my request list since Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, so I worked on finishing that up.  Bandit, the new addition to my family was warming himself under the lamp as I was trying to work. What a doll. . . .but he was blocking my light, darn it.  I did get it done. . . and it's in the shop now. . . .

And here is the 2nd part of my lazy post.  Since I didn't create anything new, except for what is already in the shop, I'll share with you a little something else.  My studio.  Well kind of. It's from the new blog that I started, so you get a 'two-fer' on this one.  It may not be what you're looking for, but daggone it. . . .it's all I got, so enjoy it anyway. LOL  Just click on the photo below to check it out.  
So, what are you doing this week?  We'd all love to see.  You are going to show us, right?It's so much fun to join in and be nosey.  And you could win a FREE image from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop, just for playing along.  You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, November 7th to link up your photo or blog to be entered in the random drawing.  Won't you share?  Come on. . .you know you want to!
Happy coloring!

Does anyone know what time it is?  You know you know. . . .It's SHOW ME THURSDAY!!!!!!  YIPPEEEEE!  I love this post.  Probably my ALL TIME favorite day of the week.  Except for Friday! LOL  I know you all enjoy it too, or at least I hope so!
I've been busy, busy, busy taking care of stuff that REALLY needs to be done and enjoying my new found adventure.

Thanks to everyone who played along and shared their posts and photos last week.  You can tell by the photos that you all have been having fun creating and I see that fall that is also definitely in the air!  Thank goodness for that!

Cynthia
Girl, you are on a roll.  You won the illustration yesterday too!  Man!  You should definitely play the lottery this week. . . and if you win, you have to share with me, since I gave you the suggestion.  :)
I'll get that FREE image credited to your account this morning.
CONGRATULATIONS!

So, what do I have to show you this week?  Well, not much of anything. . .and least not anything new in the sketch front.  This week and next are super busy for me, so it has been difficult to find time to do any serious sketching, so I just keep compiling a list of ideas.  ;)  That's better than nothing, right?!
But I have been working on a little blog that was born from many, many emails commenting on my new found love of REAL coloring.  I REALLY do appreciate that you admire my coloring.  I am humbled by that!  Thanks. . . . 
So. . . .that is what I want to share with you this week.  I was going to share photos of my apartment, but didn't have time to get the photos. . . so I guess you will have to take what you can get.
So, pop on over and let me know what you think. . . .or leave a comment here.  Either way, I'd love to hear from ya.

So. . . .what are you doing this week!?!?!?!?  I, or should I say. . .we want to see!
You'll have until next Wednesday, 5 PM EST, October 31st. to link up your blog or photo to be entered in the random FREE image give away from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop! What are you waiting for!
BOO. . ..did I scare ya.  
See ya next week!

Kraftin Kimmie winner!

Well . . . . .it was quite a ride on the Kraftin Kimmie hop. . . .and there were some gorgeous cards from the Design Team.  I still need to pop around and comment on them.  I have been sooooo busy lately that I've let life bet in the way.  Gotta stop letting that happen.

Enough.  Right!  Thanks to everyone who took the time to join in the fun and leave some love for me as well as the DT.  You know we appreciate all of your sweet and lovely comments!  Thanks bunches!

There were 29 wonderful comments left on my blog and I chose the winner by using the TRGenerator. So, who was the winner of the colored illustration?
That was none other than Lucky #29, Cynthia!  Sometimes it does pay to be last, doesn't it!
Congratulations Cynthia!  I think I have your address correct from your SC account, but just drop me an email to confirm that I do have the right address.  
Thank you all again for being so generous.  
Have a great Wednesday. . ..and we'll see you next time!

Show Me #96

Well, I certainly hope that you are having a fabulous week!  I spent last weekend with my family and had such a great time.  Many of them had colds and 'knock on wood', I'm hoping that I don't get that as I still haven't completely gotten rid of what I've had.
By the looks of the entries last week, you all have been busy, busy, busy. . . .having fun creating fabulous fall projects and getting ready for the upcoming Christmas holiday as well.  I loved ALL the posts and photos.  They were wonderful!  Thanks to everyone for taking the time to play along.  I look forward to it each week!

So . .. .who was the lucky winner of the FREE digi from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop last week?  That was the one and only.. . .
TRACY!
Did you all see her wonderful photos of these cuties that her husband took!  They were ALL adorable! But this one was probably one of my favorites!  Tracy.  Congratulations. . . and tell your hubby that he is one awesome photographer!  I'll get your FREE image credited to your account this morning. Thanks for playing along!

This is a very different post for me as I'm going to share two sets of photos with you.  The first is a sneak peek of a brand new stamp that I did for Kraftin' Kimmie.  I love this little guy!  I colored him up, not long after I drew him for Kimmie, but I had to 'sit' on him, because she wasn't releasing them until this weekend.  And of course, I have more of these sweeties up my sleeve too, but you'll just have to wait each month to see them.  So . . .whatcha think?  You can check them all out HERE!


And then there is one other set of photos I wanted to share with you.  As many of you may have noticed, I've been a little lazy lately about posting, coloring and making comments on your blogs.  Well here is the reason why.  I've MOVED!
My husband and I recently separated.  Actually, I moved a month ago yesterday.  Now, before you start commenting and saying your sorry, etc., not that I don't appreciate that, I am doing fine and am very happy!  Without going into detail, believe me, it is for the best and I'm looking forward to a new adventure.  And I have a feeling, it's going to be a fun one.  Yes, I have my good and bad days, like anyone would, but it's mainly from stupid stuff that really isn't important that I let get to me, which then puts me in a 'funk'.  Been there, done that, even before all of this happened, so I tell myself to just get OVER it and keep moving.
Now. . . .with all that said, I wanted to share with you a few photos of my apartment, the first day that I moved in.  Trust me. . .it didn't stay looking like this for long and since I'm not a 'stuff' person, it is very bare in all of the rooms, except for my office. . . and that's the way I like it.
Now, w/o going into detail about each photo, I will just say this.  The first photo is the apartment empty.  This is the door to my office.  It is actually a HUGE two BR apartment, but this is the only photo that I had where it was empty.  The rest are self explanatory, except for the one with Bella on the bed.  She was EXHAUSTED by the end of the first day. . .but we kept pushing forward.  And now we are all settled in, with most everything the way I want it.  Still need a couple of more things to make it feel like home, but I'm not a 'must have it now' person, so when I find those items, they will be added.
I'll share more photos over the next couple of weeks, of what it looks like now, as well as pictures of some of the fabulous furniture that I purchased. . . .

Well, I don't know about you. . .but I'm tired from typing all of that.  So let's see what you're working on.
You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, October, 24th to link up your photo or blog to be entered in the random, FREE image giveaway.  As you can see, by my post, it doesn't have to be crafty. . .it can be ANYTHING!  So get busy!
Happy hunting!

Show Me #95

Hip, hip hooray, it's time for another SHOW ME THURSDAY!  It's been a busy week here and I'm ready for the weekend.  The fall weather has finally set in and it so enjoyable having my coffee each morning.  Love, love, love the fall temps and I can't wait to see the leaves start changing.  Have they begun to change where you are? Ours probably won't be changing for another couple of weeks and I'm sure a nice long drive in the country will be in order once they do.

What fabulous SMT posts and photos you all shared with us last week.  Thanks to everyone who played along. They were all great.  And who was the winner of the FREE digi from the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop? That was . . .
Miss Debbie
Did you all get a chance to check out her post and photos.  Make sure you check it out.  It's worth the click.
Debbie, just drop me an email and I'll get that free image credited to your account.  Thanks for playing along. . . .and I hope you'll share another amazing post this week.

Well. . . .my creative mojo has been MIA a little and I've had a difficult time getting motivated to sketch much. . . .but this little fun sketch is something that I was working on over this past week.  I haven't quite figured out what I want to do to make her feel 'finished', but she's getting there.  Any thoughts or suggestions?  I'd LOVE to hear them!

So, get busy, and get out those cameras and start posting.  We can't wait to see what you're working on this week.  Remember, it doesn't have to be craft related. . ..it can be ANYTHING!
You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, October 17th to link up your blog or photo to be entered in the random drawing for the free image.  
So. . . .what are you waiting for!?!?!?!  
Have a FABULOUS WEEK!

Show Me #94

Fall weather is on it's way. . . or at least that's what I keep hearing.  I certainly haven't seen much of it, that's for sure, because it's been warm and humid here this week in Virginia.  I'm hoping that the forecast holds true for this weekend for the temps to be much cooler and more fall like.  Keeping my fingers crossed!

Thanks to everyone who played along last week.  You all certainly have been busy, that's for sure.  Such fabulous posts. . . .I felt a little tired and lazy after reading some of them. You all are work horses! Well, who was the lucky winner this past week?  That was none other than.. .
Terri!
Congratulations Terri!!!  Did you all see her amazing recipe cards?  They are wonderful!!!!!
Terri, I'll credit your account this morning for the FREE image to the shop. 

And as for me?  Well, I did get two new images created for the shop, including the newest one, What's Up Turkey?  But that's about as far as I got.  So, you'll have to be satisfied with the plain 'ole boring picture for this week.  Nope, my life as an artist is not always glamorous.  LMBO!
I do have a few things that I am sketching on, but with the small bit of a headache that started yesterday afternoon, I wasn't able to get enough done for you to see. . .so instead, I quickly snapped this photo to show you what I had started working on yesterday when I still felt like working.  :)  It's The Loves Healing Hands, boy image that I'm going to be coloring up for my Etsy Shop.  As you can see, I didn't get very far.  

So, you'll have to be the exciting ones again this week and share your lovely goings on.  What do you have to wow us with this week?  Can't wait to see.
You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, October 10th. to link up your blog or photo to be entered in the random drawing for the FREE image to the Sassy Cheryl's Digis shop.  So get snapping. . . .
We're waiting!
Have a great week. . .and HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL!

Show Me #93

It's hard to believe that an entire week has past since we last gathered.  My goodness, time sure does fly.  I have been busy, busy, busy and have not had a lot of time for sketching, but I do have a little something to show you.

But let's get to the fun part first. . .and a BIG FAT THANK YOU to everyone who played along!  So, who was the lucky winner for last weeks SMThursday #92?  Well, that was none other than my good friend. . . .
ANNA!
Congratulations Anna. . . .!  I'll get your free image credited to your account this morning.  Did you all see her small project that she was working on?  hehehe.  I say that jokingly.  Just take a look for yourself.
Hope you're feeling better and have time to play along this week.  Would love to see the finished products.

So, I'll show you what has been going on in 'part' of my life the last couple of weeks and I'm sure you will see where I am headed with these photos.  Already have started rough sketches, but I want to get them just right, because I plan on giving them to my niece for Christmas. . . .so they have to be just right.
My one niece sent these to me of my great niece and nephew in their Halloween costumes for this year and I knew right away that I wanted to make/revamp into illustrations.  Just look at those faces!  My niece is really going to have her hands full with these two.  Mr. Attitude" and "Priss-pot".  Yep, should be a fun night, don't ya think?  So, I'm working out the final details on the sketches, but look for them in the store by next week. . . .along with last weeks little sneak peek preview.


So, what are you doing this week?  Can't wait to see.  Come play along and share.  We want to get nosey!!!
You'll have until 5 PM EST, October 3rd, to link up your blog or photo to be entered in the random drawing for the FREE image.  
Happy Hunting!!!!
