still here...

...just been busy with life. I have been potty training for the past couple of weeks and it has gone really well but does rock the normal schedule a bit. Finally it feels like normal to be potty trained and we are getting back out into the world!

This is a silly little shot of Scott and I out for my sister-in-law Gingers b-day party...lots and lots of fun!

I have only worked on a few pieces lately and here is a custom wedding piece I just finished. It was commissions by a sweet friend who gets me to do lots of custom piece for her. I love that she thinks of me for many of her gifts, and I am truly so appreciative!
We still have not come up with a name for it but it is 12" x 14" and fabric on wood.

Here is another Encaustic piece that I finished a few weeks ago called "Can't forget this night". I had a great time stamping in the stars and really just playing around. It is in my Etsy shop right HERE if you want to check it out!
Here is another Gathering Girl that I made for my dear friend Mel. She has been doing a little shopping in my Etsy shop and got the "Gathering Green" girl for her oldest daughter but did not see the right piece for her younger one. I thought it was only fair to make a "Gathering Pink" for her sweet baby and I think she was happy with her.

We have had some really nice weather lately and this is what I bring out with me sometimes. I have the computer outside b/c we (London and I) were jamming out to some music on itunes. I never really get very much art done while we are outside playing but I like to have it scattered about anyway. lol

New encaustic piece I am working on. Here is the first layer of encaustic medium and then color. You can see a little bit of the pencil drawing directly on the wood through the encaustic paints.

London came running over to be in the picture too.

Below I have added some fabric and will be adding more wax soon.

This piece has been in progress for sometime now. I added some fabric today but still do not know where it is going. I am taking my time figuring out this encaustic stuff and having a grand old time in the meantime.

And I will leave you with this lovely image of my infected eye. I went and saw a dr. and it has cleared up with some expensive drops and a 4 x's a day cleaning regimen. I apparently have poor glands that clog very easily. I was actually happy it was not pink eye as I did not want to worry about giving it to London. 3 yr old and eye drops = not a good combo.

I will try not to be so busy and stop by more often. :)

Oh, your eye makes mine water! So glad you got thru the potty training...everyone always told me...well it's going to happen sooner or later...they will always learn. Love all of the projects you've been working on.

haha...I know waterrose, it was slightly painful and oh so ugly to look at. All clear now, thank goodness.
Yes the potty training had it's challenging moments but we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and life is getting easier again. Yay!
And thank you :)
