A Little Pick-Me-Up ~

Well, it's been a long couple of weeks.  A quiet couple of weeks.  Since losing Junior, I've realized just how vocal he was.  Anytime someone knocked on the door, he would yip and yodel.  Now when someone knocks, I expect to hear Junior put up a fuss....then, nothing.  Just a knock and then silence.  I can hardly stand the silence.

I've been staying busy and trying to get back to my studio.  In the meantime, a couple of fun things have been going on.  I am the Featured Artist on Zibbet this week ~ 

I had fun doing the interview and I am hopeful that I can help people become aware of Zibbet.  It is so much like the early days on Etsy.

I was also asked to donate a piece of art for the "Mayor's Ball for Arts and Innovation" in Riverside, California.   It will be offered in a silent auction, which terrifies me to no end.  What if no one bids?  

 I wanted to create a new piece, but I just haven't had the heart to find my way back to the studio, so I am donating one of my newest pieces ~ 

"The Guardian of Minervia's Secrets"

I'll be framing it up this week, and off it will go to the silent auction!

Since the original "The Guardian of Minervia's Secrets" is no longer in my shop, it is now being offered in a print version

Otherwise, things have been mighty quiet around my neck of the woods.  Very hot and very quiet.

Thank you so much for all your kind emails regarding Junior.  

Until Next Time

Every time I see this sweet boys photo, I smile. I have loved to get to 'know' him through your stories. As you know, I do know what you are going thru. Tender hugs...

Oh, I am SO sorry for your loss! What a sweet boy he must have been - he was photographed in such a way that he seems to be looking deep in the viewers' eyes, and I can almost see his little butt wiggling a wag! You are blessed with fond memories, I know!
