We had to paint our favorite shoes for lesson five of Jane's journaling class. I think shoes might be my new favorite subject!

Gerbera Daisies

Here are my exercises for lessons three and four of Jane’s Watercolor Sketchbook Journaling class. I bought this Gerbera daisy plant at the Acme a few weeks ago and it has been such a patient little model. Best $4.99 investment I ever made!

Merrick is Going to California!

Merrick just sold from my Shanty Clauses site and is heading out to California! My sweet boys are leading lives of travel and adventure!

Hubert is Going to Guam!

Hubert sold at auction, but only went for the opening bid, which was kinda low. Either he somehow flew under the radar - or he and I seriously overestimated his appeal! (We thought he was cute as heck!) Hmmm, anyway, he’s going to a very nice customer on the other side of the world in Guam. How cool is that? He’s very excited!

Santa Auction

In honor of Veteran’s Day (November 11th), I have put one of my Santas up for auction on eBay with 100% of the proceeds to benefit Homes for Our Troops. They are a wonderful organization that builds specially adapted houses for severely injured soldiers. I do hope Santa Hubert does well. He’s actually my favorite. I’m paying for shipping so that all the money goes to this truly worthy cause...
