happy monday!

Back to school for my daughter..uggg i cant believe she is in her first year of highschool already..where has the time gone? This is the first time she worried what her hair looked like before she went this morning and she even asked me to help her with it! i remember the days when what was her recess snack was more important or if she could bring her favorite beanie baby to school with her so she would not be scared..the beanie baby was a bribe from me so she would go in the door on her first day of a purse has replaced the "back pack" and can i wear makeup?
(no she cant yet...another year maybe) :) for every new school year she has brought her beanie baby to school,im not sure if it went today with her ..i suppose ill have o sneak it in her "purse" tomorrow so it will experience high school with her even if its for one day...its just the "mommy" in me i guess..I love you Molly...sigh

colours and textures

I am a blue/green colour addict.. i cant help it, they are the colours I'm drawn too
every time i pick up a paint brush to paint they are the first colours i reach for
Its same with beads and fibers..threads...I think i work better with these than others,don't get me wrong i use allot of others too but just find that blue and green easier..things just "happen" unplanned image's appear. This painting i did the other day was like that, I was experimenting with silk and wool and i had a background already painted onto a canvas, when i first layed down the fibers the canvas was in a different position..lengthwise and i was quite happy with how it was coming out..I took a little break to get some coffee and while i was looking down i tilted my head just to see what would appear..i seen a woman so i turned the canvas around and there she was..a spot just waiting for a face and a flowing dress was already there..the painting has water colors,ink and arcylic paints and is finnished with glows and has a raised texture with the fibers i wish you can see it in person
She reminds me of the ocean and her hair is like stands of seaweed and she looks like she is she is called "Ocean Dreamer'

this is exciting! my little bird has found a new home! it was a complete surprise to me that she was wanted by a wonderful lady named Bernice who had to have little bird for her collection. I am so pleased that little bird will have a nice new lady to keep her company! She also asked me to make another bird for her as a remembrance for her daughter..i am honoured to do so :)
so i had to make a pay pal account to do this transaction..all new to me and a little overwhelming but i did it,now i am about to have my own etsy shop soon
i have to get over my fears and just do it..i think that i needed a little shove to do this and i have to thank little bird..and Bernice
any advice on selling on Etsy would be most welcomed..
