Today I did my LIVE interview on Art Talk Radio hosted by Niki Jackson.
You can listen to it here

(*Correction* In the interview I called my one character "Little Lulu", when I meant to say "Little Lizzy" LOL! I think I had Suzi Blu's dog Lulu on my brain!)
Thank you all for submitting your questions!
(((hugs to all!)))

It snowed....again...

This has to be the longest winter on record. It snowed...again...
The snow was quite wet and melted when it hit the ground, so I guess that is a good sign.

I can't wait till spring and summer. I will take all kinds of fun photos and videos outside and really let you get a feel for what it is like to live here. I love Toronto in the summer time :)

Along with the Frida paintings I have listed this week on ebay, I also just added a sweet angel taking a "tea break" with her kitty :)

I am going to make myself a chai tea right now :)

How many more days 'till Spring?

Is it Spring yet? It is still so cold out. I'm SO looking forward to Spring and Summer!

Remember this post? The last day of Summer. It was still so warm! I ate cheese! I miss cheese!

So as a preview to spring/summer, I did this bright and cheery flower painting to keep me happy till the warm weather arrives :)

Little article about my book binding video!

Opie watching the birds

Opie was watching the birds at the window (his favorite pass time) and I was just in awe of all the pretty colors on his face. The skin by his ear is like a soft lavender color! I see pink, cream, apricot and pale blue. He's all pastel!

Good Night Bun Bun

Little Bun Bun is sleepy. Time to go to bed.

That is what I need to do too. But it looks like my bed time will be 4 am as usual LOL...

This is another painting in my "Little Lizzy" series. This new one can be found at my etsy shop.

*** This painting is now SOLD. ***

Sweet dreams!


Looking forward to Spring

There is something about Spring that puts me in the mood to make jewelry.
Maybe it is because "back in the day" I used to sell my handmade jewelry outside along the Queen Street West vendors. Or maybe it is because when the warm weather arrives we shed our big heavy coats and are able to show off our jewelry.

Well, Spring isn't here SNOWED yesterday. UGH! Will it ever end?!!!

In anticipation of Spring I have made these fun and funky Spring Green felted earrings on sterling silver.

Available in my etsy shop

Midnight kitty new on etsy

If you have cats, you know the old "cats are nocturnal animals" thing.
They just love to rip around and run across your face when your sleeping!
Luckily for me, I am usually up all night so, when I'm ready for bed, so are they.
They still try it at 5 am sometimes.

I have a new painting listed in my etsy shop called Night-time Cat.

***This painting is now SOLD***

Have a fun and sunny Saturday!
