below is "Joan's New Summer Dress,"
and finally, "Claire's Summer Stroll"! These were a lot of fun. They are available in my shop!
Also, I have been given an award from the lovely Amalia K over at Translucent Blue. Thank you Amalia! If you have not checked out her blog, you certainly should! Her artwork is incredible: detailed, elegant and imaginative.
I believe I am supposed to share 5 addictions, so here they are!
1. My boyfriend Daniel, because he is the sweetest, most supportive man in the world.
2. My kitties Rosie and Violet, because they are so sweet and silly and make my life brighter!
3. Making art (duh!:)
4. Yoga, because it makes me feel calm and balanced
5. Potatoes, because they are delicious cooked any way and I could eat them every single day! :)
On a final note, I wanted to mention that there is an etsy shop, Lizziestardust, whose entire June proceeds are going to benefit Casa de los Gatos, Arizona's largest no-kill cat sanctuary. The shop sells cute, colorful bracelets for $20 each. I can vouch for Casa personally because I worked there for a year and a half doing cat care directly for the founder and president of Casa, Beth Montes. They care for over 400 cats, kittens, and even a few doggies, with volunteers and a small staff who work long hours for very little, if any, pay. Everyone there genuinely loves and takes good care of all of the animals. They also care for cats with feline leukemia and fiv, and Beth even personally rescued many cats from Hurricane Katrina, several of whom are now at the shelter (after searching for their owners, of course). Anyway, it is definitely a worthy cause if you are looking for a fun summer bracelet! Money is very tight around here, but I am going to save up to get a bracelet by the end of June.
