Story Book Illustration

This is TUMBLY Mouse, he's the star of one of my children's stores. I have been dithering about putting
a story or two on Kindle and I think 'Tumbly Mouse sneaks out of his House' will be the experiment! However I only have a couple of illustrations, so the book may just have a colour front cover for now!

Strawberry Shortcake

I may have mentioned an interest in Strawberry Shortcake, the cute doll from childhood.
I have accumalated quite a few, turns out there were loads of different ones!
Anyway, just wondering if anyone else shares this interest. (ahem... obsession) :)

lazy days

This is my Milly moo,

She's just lolling about stretching in the sun, she loves those dried up crunchy leaves! She's so cute when it's nice weather, she loves the family being outdoors, she shows off!
So, HOT HOT today. thought I'd do a bit of writing out on the laptop. Of course life is not that simple and I couldn't see the screen with the glare from the super sunshine. So I threw my cardigan over my head and made a little 'tent' over me and laptop. It was alright for a few minutes, then I got too hot. Then my battery went dead, so I took it as a sign that my laptop doesn't like sunshine and took it inside.
So, all I managed was a comment on one blog. No other writing of any productive style at all.
And...why is it there are never any ice cubes when you need them? Just empty trays in the freezer. Why do people do that? Had to resort to chopping up an ice pop to put in my drink.
Oh well. It's sunny. I'm happy. :)
Has it been a lazy Saturday for you?

You may know how I like Strawberry Shortcake, the cute dolls from the 80's,
these are ACEO (Art Cards Editions and Originals) pastel drawings, little artworks of 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
Tiny portraits of two dolls, Almond Tea and Plum Puddin' :)

Poorly Mouse

This is how I'm feeling right now. Sniffle.

Another last!

I haven't painted anything in a while, too busy writing :)
However, I've just aquired a new easel, which is great, so I had to paint something to ease Mr Easel into his new home. I decided to do something that I could finish the same day (otherwise I can take months to get back to it).
So here's my red flowers, I was going to be all brave and do a black background, but wimped out at the crucial moment and went for sunny yellow!
