Each 4.25" x 5.5" card was printed on my Epson R2880 archival ink printer and was hand cut and folded by me. Gone are the days that I printed card images separately, then cut and adhered them to pre-made card blanks. It was so time consuming to make cards that way!
Now I can even print a little copyright and some contact info on the back of each card.
This set features 6 of my new chair pieces and comes with matching white envelopes. The inside of the cards are left blank for your own personal message. The set would make a great housewarming gift!
The Comfy Chair Collection is available for sale in the Paper Goods section of my Etsy shop.

My new IMac arrived this weekend! It is a thing of beauty and wonder. There are so many things I can do with it that I couldn't do with that old PC of mine!
What's missing from this picture? No wires! I got the wireless mouse and keyboard. It makes my whole desk look so much better. My only complaint about this set up is that the new tiny keyboard does not have the number pad on the right and I do miss this feature.
Since my desk looked so fresh and clean, I decided that the whole studio needed to be cleaned up.
Even the pile of stuff that usually collects on the bed was put away. I don't know how long this room will last in its present state. Creativity is messy! (At least it is for me.)
Have a good week friends.

First off, thanks to all who took the time to critique my work last week. I absolutely agree that its elements are not working together compositionally. I've decided to put it aside for a bit and come back to it. That seems to help sometimes. I'll be sure to share it when its been reworked.
In the meantime, I have been on an ACEO spree! I've whipped out 5 of these tiny 2.5" x 3.5" pieces in the last few days. It was liberating to work this small and fast after working larger for a time.
To celebrate my spree, I'm going to offer my newest bunch of ACEO's for just $10.00 each! (Standard price is $15.00). This price is only good until midnight Tuesday, April 14th....So hurry! Click your way over to my Etsy shop pronto.

One of the things I miss about being in school is the community of artists I was a part of. If you had a question about your work or were looking for feedback, there was always someone in the studio to consult and bounce ideas off of.
Flickr, Twitter, and Etsy have become my new art community. I'm grateful to have found a group of creative people to learn and grow from in the cyber word.
So I'm reaching out to you about "I've never been to Abilene". I don't know how I feel about this one. I can't put my finger on it, but it needs something, or needs to be edited.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Don't worry, I have a thick skin. Say what you feel.
