It's the Queen of Skelly Island, the Under the Sea swap lovely I got from my swap partner Marie Patterson. Ain't she a beaut? Be sure to go to Marie's blog and check out her Etsy shop too. I got an added bonus of one of her darling Spooky Spinners! Marie was a great swap partner and I am so glad that Zan matched us up! Zan, she's like eHarmony for art dollers. The Queen is now displayed in a place of honor on my Halloween shelf. Thanks, Marie!

Two mini Mixed Maniac workshops!
And a book signing!
And wine while we sign!*
Debbi and I will both have works for sale available throughout the day, including some of the original works featured in our book, Mixed Mania.
Book signing and wining (but no whining) from 3pm - 5pm. What? It's the weekend. Drinking hours don't apply.

Class space is booking up fast, book signing is open to everyone including paparazzi. Hope to see you there.
*There may also be some almond macaroons too, as is the tradition.

The robin that built this nest abandon it Easter weekend after a terrible storm. It was empty so she probably found somewhere more private than next to our driveway. We waited to see if she'd come back but she never did. Mark got it out of the cherry tree for me today. A very nice Mother's Day gift. I put the twin quail eggs in it and put it in our guest bath with my other bird themed goodies.

Fickleness thy name is Maggie.
I thought we had something special. That we understood each other. Sure, these long-dog/long-distance things are seldom smooth, but now I see you have a new hound in your life. Flowers, Maggie? I never knew you like flowers. I thought that the occasional stick and dead chickadee was romantic AND original. But you sold me out for some lousy tulips and some soul full eyes.
Well, I hope you two are very happy on your little walk. Really. I'm not bitter. There are other dogs in the park.
If you want me I'll be listening to Sade on my iPup or watching The Notebook over and over and NOT THINKING ABOUT YOU. Or your cute little bandanna. Or the way your ears look all fluffy when you're napping.
Single Black & Tan male seeks female companion who enjoys napping, chewing, and long walks. Chivalry is not dead, I will supply the plastic bag for pick up. I enjoy footwear, dead birds, and rolling in foul-odored, decomposing material. I majored in Liberal Arfs. My philosophy on life is that edible is a state of mind.
I'd like to share my perfect, romantic dinner with you. We'd begin with a flip-flop appetizer by candlelight followed by licking the remnants out of a Lean Cuisine tray with a side of Legos. For dessert: I would love to feed you a very collectible and expensive Yu Gi Oh card. We can finish with two clear pink marbles swallowed whole.
Sense of humor and aversion to Basset Hounds and tulips a must.
