This week the garden Studio gets a thorough makeover. It's time I got back outside where the birds are singing to my Muse. Expect lots of pictures!

I'll be documenting it here and over on the Holistic blog, but the posts may be quite different :D

New Blog.

I have a new blog where I can talk about all other things going on in my life.  I want to keep the Studio blog simple and use it for my art, but other things are taking off that I would like to share with you all.

Please take a look and let me know what you think.  It's called The Holistic Home and if you click on the words, you'll find yourself there.

Well, anything I've been up to lately can wait until tomorrow. First, you simply have to go and check out the amazing news over at Vivian's blog, Dreams of the Dragonfly. Vivian has created the most adorable doll, dressed up and ready to travel the World in true Jet-setter style. I've requested a visit from this gorgeous gal and I'm hoping very soon that she'll hop on a plane and come visit me. I hope she behaves though as she strikes me as a bit of a party animal, haha! I wonder what Merlin will make of her???

Back to normal!!!

Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments on my last post.  I have been resting, but as some of you guessed, I have indeed taken on yet another idea, haha.  I've been studying a herbalism course and have plans to implement my new knowledge with a full herb garden.  Now I just need the weather to oblige!

Also, I've been rather distracted by the imminent arrival of Cotton's first litter.  I was so worried about her as she looked too big to give birth without assistance.  I needn't have worried as she climbed into my wardrobe, unnoticed and quietly got on with it!  The first I knew was when Manchee tried to break down the door!!!  I heard noises from inside and thought it might me a mouse.  Nope!!!
I couldn't be happier that one is ginger :D
The grey dappled one is gorgeous and the black and white has the sweetest face :D
I have been trying to get some work done in the Studio.  I've changed the layout from the original sketch, but prefer the sketched girl to the one in the painting!
She looks older and less cheery! I hope I can remedy that!
The background is shaping up though, and I'm happier with it than I was.
