By the Sea and other new things

Hello my lovely blog friends! I must apologize that I have gotten a little bit behind on my blogging lately. I have a few new paintings to show you, the one above being "By the Sea," something a little summer-y :) I don't usually do short haidos on my girls but she felt like she needed something a little retro :)

This one above is "Rosalie" and her little bee friend.

This one is called "Theater of Dreams" and is a little larger, at 11"x14." I really took my time on this one and enjoyed it. All three paintings are available in my shop.

I am having a lovely day today of painting, tea and lowfat (but still scrumptious) carrot cake bars. I have lost about 15 pounds since last November and am trying to lose a little more before going wedding dress shopping, so I am trying to indulge my baking hobby in a slightly more waist-friendly way :)

And last but certainly not least, I am thrilled that the lovely Vanessa Valencia has announced the date of this year's Mad Tea Party! Just click on the flyer below to get all the details on her blog, anyone with a blog is free to join in! I had such an amazing time last year that I can't wait to do it again. (You can check out my party from last year here).

I hope that you are all having a lovely Friday!
