new art dolls for Etsy

I've just listed eight new dolls .... in my shop now !

hope you had a wonderful Christmas ......let's follow the Lord ALL year long !
we watched a movie > Midnight in Paris . loved it .... we watched it twice
and of course we watched Scrooge [ Alastair Sim one favorite ]
I remember watching this movie every year when I was little , on The Million Dollar movie channel 9 ... they played it all day and night , and we watched it all day and night . I must have seen this movie a thousand times and I still love it

Have a very HAPPY New Year ..... I'll be back with a give away next year [ in January ]

my NEW window

They just left ... the new window is in ! ....... YAY . WHat a big job this was ... two and half days .
so, you ask ......
How long before you junk up the window ? My answer ...... not too long !

They finished at noon , as soon as they drove away I let the cats out , changed into my crappy clothes , made tea and a salami sandwich [ to celebrate ] and then ......... I put junk in the window .
The cats [ to my surprise ] are not interested , but I can always count on Jerry .
so here's the new window
I know it looks awful and HUGE ...... it's 18 inches deep
It needs paint and curtains [ and junk ]
But I am very happy the workers are gone , and happy with the window . it's good and solid , no more DRAFTS
I am alone again
ah ........... peace .

the old bay window

I took this photo early this morning before the guys got here . They're here right now , banging and making all kinds of noise . I'm hiding in my studio upstairs .... Baby Em is safe in the bedroom , Juliette , Buddy and Holly are down in the basement . I hate locking the cats up . It makes me feel so bad for them , it's a long day . I know they hate the noise too . I know I really am like a cat, I'm a cat lady .... I like a peaceful house . I hate disruptions , and even though my house is a mess .... I like things where they are , even if it's a pile of junk in a corner .
well ... they'll be here today AND tomorrow
In this photo you can see that foggy thing in the window .... I couldn't see out of any of my windows ! So now I have some new windows upstairs , I get up in the middle of the night to watch the clouds move past the moon ..... nice
thank you Lord ......
I'm so grateful ! we got a new gas furnace AND now new windows !!!!!!
after this is all done I have to paint , figure out curtains . put my junk back where it belongs , ha ha [ maybe I'll get rid of more junk ]
Have a wonderful day
and thank you ..... for visiting me !!!!

Garbage Day

Oh wow
I know it's been SO long since I blogged ..... everything is okay here
we are having our old crappy windows replaced , great timing ..... just in time for when I'm really busy with Christmas . But .... it HAS to be done . I haven't been able to see out my windows for YEARS . They had all that cloudy stuff in between the glass [ awful ]
and this week we will have our huge bay window replaced too . It's sort of hanging out of the house ... ha ha
so that's what's going on ..... cleaning my messes away from windows , locking up my four cats in different rooms and trying to work too [ I get so stressed when I CAN'T work ]
but I am VERY grateful that I can see out my windows .
The painting above is called Garbage day
it's in my shop

wood cut out cat girl for Etsy

It's so hard to believe how quickly the week goes by . And now .... maybe some snow this weekend !!!!
I don't think we'll get much , probably more rain than snow .
anyway > I painted this cat girl on Bainbridge illustration board with ink and my much loved DERWENT Inktense pencils
then I made a print , mounted the print on board and cut out on my scroll saw
Where do you buy your brushes ? I used to have a great place [ a catalog ] to buy brushes , their prices were SO good , but ...... they went out of business
oh well
My cat girl wood cut out is in my etsy shop.... [ update > this one just sold , but I'll be making more soon ! ]
have a great weekend
