Secret Project is Almost Ready

Well, That very special project a friend and I have been diligently working on is almost ready to go to the printers and be proofed. There are a few minor details to sew up and then I can let you all in on it. I know you won't be disappointed at all and I can't wait to share it all with everyone! It is really hard keeping a secret but I am pretty good at it.

Getting a Head Start

I thought since I was in make a few adjustments to my website I would get a head start on May's freebie. Go to Freebies on my site and download a trio of beach bookmarks - a little early but i am sure there is beach weather somewhere on the planet right?

When It Rains It Pours

When It Rains It Pours, always a statement that draws up bad omens. Most people think of bad things coming at them in droves, floods and being so overwhelmed that they can't come up for air, to me at this very time, the rain represents a good thing, the kind of rain that makes things green and flowers grow. The kind of rain that washed all bad away and gives you a new chance.

I have been a bit absent here on this blog as well as in my Zazzle store but for very good reason. I have been approached by a company for a very special project, one so special I can't really tell you what it is yet but i can tell you I am enjoying it immensely. I get to do what I do best and that is use my imagination to create some fantastical things. This special project is taking up quite a bit of my time but in the end it will be worth it. I am very excited about it.

Add to that bit of good news is that I am helping a friend on another ambitious project and that takes up all my free time for the next week or so. I will be able to tell you a bit about that probably by the end of the week.

Another thing is that I finally took the plunge into fabric design and opened a store on Spoonflower. Well the store has been there for a while but now there are things to purchase. Fabric design is a slow process so there isn't much there yet because of approval times. I even entered the watercolor design contest they recently had and came in 42nd! Ok, go ahead and laugh but I can say that I am quite happy about it. Why? Well, I am brand new there, no one there knows me, other than a small post on facebook I did no advertising yet I managed to come in smack dab in the middle. I think that isn't to bad really.

Last but not least I will be working with Lora Shelley on her new website. Lora is an amazing artist and we are going to make her website show you how good. Right now it has been sitting there and it is going to get it a little love and attention. This too is a very big project and one I am excited to embark on. (It is also nice to not be staring at my work all the time too)

So if I am missing in action, it is for a good reason, some of you might enjoy the fact I am not blabbering on, some of you might miss me, either way it is all good...let the rain come down
