Hope this post find you all happy and healthy. Things have been so busy here in my world. I am trying to stay sane, meet my artistic deadlines, work my day job, take care of the family, and be creative at the same time. Can one do that? I am so trying -- sounds impossible at times.
Well, Pfatt Marketplace updates on the 10th of this month and right after on SpookyTime Jingles new artwork posts on the 13th. So, I have been frantically working on getting my offerings ready to go. Here is a sneak peek of some of my new ghosts.
Yes, they are a work in progress. Need to do some final detailing on their faces and bodies, insert their arms, cover their bodies in some really cool sheer netting I found, make their collars, add accessories and voila' they will be ready to go! This is not a great picture as I took it with my phone. There is a lot of great dry brushing to them that you cannot see. I know you like pictures like this, but I always hesitate because they are not finished and I want them to be perfect before I share. What is a girl to do? They will look so different when they are finished - just a few more hours.
Moving right along to some wonderful news. We have a birthday boy in the house!! Yes ... my sweet, little man, Jake is celebrating his 1st birthday. Awe Jake, you are the BEST! He is definitely a girl's best friend too. My life is sweeter every day with you in it! XOXO
Here is a picture of my winnings from A Piece of Lisa's Blog Giveaway. His name is Frosty! I like to call him Mr. Chill. It has been so hot here, I just feel better looking at this little guy. Isn't he cute?! Anyway, I hardly ever sign up for a giveaway. I usually never win. To my surprise, I actually won this one. This NEVER happens. What fun! What excitement! What joy! Mr. Chill now lives with me and Jake. YAY!!

FOLKART AND PRIMITIVES (FAAP) GROUP on ETSY
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I joined up with a group call Folkart and Primitives (FAAP) on Etsy. I know my art is not so much primitive, so I guess I will be the folkart part to their prims. Regardless, I am really happy to be a part of this collaboration of incredibly sweet, caring, super talented group of artists! Never in my whole life have I been accepted to a group where everyone I have met treats you with genuine kindness and is willing to promote each other. Kinda unheard of nowadays. I am truly honored to be a member and eager to promote them as well.
You will see me post about this group often. To see their offerings, go to my sidebar and click on the link to FAAPs Etsy offerings. They also have a blog you will want to follow. There will be several giveaways and events coming up. These sweet ladies even did a write up on Charmed Confections and my Etsy Shoppe. So nice and I can't thank them enough! Here is the link:
Well, that is it for now. I will be posting again to remind you all about the Pfatt Marketplace update and to show you some finished pictures of those ghosts. In the meantime, have a wonderful 4th of July! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA - LAND THAT I LOVE!! XOXO
