Just a few of the many ideas for Holiday turtles. Thanks to the enthusiasm of a couple of people at the Fitch Craft Fair, these guys are being turned into cards! They wanted a unique and turtle-ly note sent to their family this year! Thanks guys! I'll let you know when the cards are done, I think they're going to be really quite fun!

After a whirlwind driving tour of New England visiting family for Thanksgiving weekend we jumped headfirst into another busy week without taking a breath. Filled with work, doctor's appointments, work, driving to work, getting ready for another craft fair, driving home from work....well you get the picture. All I can say is, it's a good thing our dog can go 10, 11, sometimes 12 hours in between potty breaks (wow, that's awful) and that we have nothing really expensive to ruin when the cat realizes he's not getting enough attention.
So on the agenda for this weekend....I'll have some collages up starting tomorrow in The Lighthouse Voc-Ed Center Gallery. This is a first time opportunity for me. This exhibit will be up December 5th-29th showcasing various local artists. The open house is Friday the 5th from 12-7pm. Stop by if you have the chance, there's a lot of art to look at and you just might find a special Christmas present for someone!
This Saturday, Dec. 6th I will be at Fitch High School for their Holiday Craft Fair. Stop by if you're in the area!
I have some other surprises I've been working on that I hope will be ready soon! Stay tuned for more.....because I certainly don't know how to stop! I think I should go to bed now....yeah, that's what I'll do....

Next up, Christmas Turtles!
Katie and me - goofin' with the turtles!
So we had a wonderful time at our first fair. It was fun to talk to people, see how they reacted to my artwork. Many people were interested in the hand drawn portrait raffle. Thank you everyone! Look me up and I can still do a portrait for you! But the grand prize winner of the raffle is:
Congratulations Lisa, hope to get working on your portrait soon. Should make a wonderful Christmas present for someone special!
If you interested, I'll be in another holiday craft fair coming up on December 6th. If you're in the area come by Fitch High School to see many more amazing artisans and homemade gifts!

Kita is our adopted pet, we inherited a lot of trouble when we got her....let's just say she has some special needs. BUT she is absolutely the most lovable, loyal, amusing dog you'll ever meet...the only dog I've ever had. She makes me laugh and I love her.
Thought you'd like to see some of her crazy antics. This is how hyper she gets when Joel plays with her!

It's 6x6" on a very rough paper so I purposely used crosshatching light strokes with colored pencil. I'm still thinking children's art here...so....what do you think?
It's been hard to find frames, square frames are hard to come by. And there are some turtle's that require a larger wider frame, hopefully I'll have some of those to show soon. Here's some more that I have started....

Cristi and Ben after the police recovered their stolen car and they got new keys!
The morning we left, right outside their house.Ben and Cristi inspire me. Cristi was always the romantic dreamer, running around in dress-up clothes looking for her "kindred spirit" and Ben likes to wield swords, wear capes and be the hero. I hope they never lose these qualities, the world needs more lovers, dreamers and heroes.
