Finally a New Post !

The bad blogger returns.I've been away from blog land for a long time and I have missed it. My artwork sales have taken off suddenly and with that goes the creation of more art.Plenty of painting + family stuff + plus daily life stuff + procrastination = No time, to blog. I'll do much better. I promise.
A lot has been going on since my last post.Here a quick run down.

Melody nominated me as a Rockin' Girl Blogger. She is so sweet. She is also a brilliant entrepreneur.This is her online store. I missed her at the Sewing Expo in Novi, Michigan,this year.
I'm nominating Faye. Her blog is inspiring and fun.Visiting is like having tea with a friend. I had the pleasure of spending a shopping day with her and even though we became acquainted by blogging,it felt like we have been friends forever. We had lunch and did fabric and pattern shopping.

I won a first place award in a folk art show.

I had art show in September.Here are some of the pieces that sold.

I was able to really enjoy my trip to Michigan (where I'm from) with the money I made from the art show.

My family is very supportive of my art career and while I was visiting, my brother took me to some really cool galleries. I love visiting Michigan in the fall.

This is my Pumpkin with pumpkins. My DD attended the Sewing Expo with me. She had more fun taking pictures and raiding her grandmother's yarn stash. She sew a little bit. She enjoys knitting more.
After we returned home, it was back to more painting and sewing,in preparation for the Holiday Artist Market. I have dolls and paintings in this venue. So far the dolls are selling well. Here are two.They come in many colors and fabrics. I love making them because they require two the two thing I love,...sewing and painting.

So that's the quick run down of what I've been making lately.
Oh yes,there has been some sewing of garments too.(I had to have something to wear to the show receptions) I will post the wearable goods later. I'm going to bed.

Hey Artist! It's so nice to see you post. I LOVE your paintings and your dolls. I know what it does to you when you have so much on your plate. I sent you an email thanking you for your wonderful gift! I've seen people being nominated as Rocking Bloggers but don't know what to do from here. Thanks for the nomination and the nice things you said about my blog!
