I've put "Climbing" on Etsy -- Click here for listing!

Boy is it chilly today. Sunny and bright, but COLD. The woodstove doesn't seem to be keeping up too well with it, I'm freezing over here in my room! I have some commissions to do today, some paintings to ship, and I am going to re-design my business card. In a couple of days my aunt will be here!! My brother and I have always called her "Extra", as in Extra Mom. I will be excited to see her.
And now it is time for Random Photos From My Life!

I liked how my colored pencils looked all lined up in a row. So y'all get a picture.

The results of my new cookie press and cookie book I got for Christmas. These were awesome! I need to make more!

On sunny WARM days I like to go outside and sit in the "fairy thicket" at the bottom of our hill. On this particular day I was writing old-fashioned snail mail letters with dip pens and ink. I miss snail mail letters.

I also like to take my favorite dolls along on sunny warm days to the fairy thicket. They need a good airing out too you know. ;)

And, because someone asked, this is in fact the fairies' ballroom. The one my cat broke a second doorway in, haha.

And now ends this episode of Random Photos From My Life.

I love how you organize your colored pencils that way, I should do that. Makes it that much easier to select.

I love your pictures of the fairy areas (like the ballroom) do you have more pictures like that from around your house? I'd love to see them. :)

Hi Carmen!
I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Elena...I am also a Christian and an aspiring artist. I've seen your work on Etsy and IF and I LOVE it. I am into cute and cuddly creatures too, but your watercolor work, I can't even come close to! I put a little shout out to you on my blog today....I was talking about IF artists that I like. Just to let you know! Keep up the good work!
