Battling Varmits!

I recently found out what steampunk is! I've seen the style many times but never knew what to call it. Anyway, I like it a lot and always have, so when I started thinking about designing a new kit, steampunk seemed liked a good idea. Besides, right now everyone's doing autumn or halloween and I want to do something different. So look for that kit as a freebie here sometime in the near future.

Since we moved down here by the river we've been at war with the wildlife. They get into our garbage every night. And now that we have cornstalks decorating the front of our house they are trashing those too. Now I know they're adorable, and I don't want to hurt them...well sometimes I do, but I really wish he'd move on.
Here's the main culprit:

Don't let his cuteness deceive you, he's a bad boy!
I'm hoping he hibernates pretty soon...

Well, since I haven't posted anything for a while, here's somewhat of an update...

Brendan started Kindergarten last month. He's been having a hard time paying attention though. Like father, like son I guess. He also had his first dentist visit...he's getting his 6 year molars. I forgot what teething is like for kids, the fevers and crankiness...hope he gets them in soon!
This was taken his first day of school...
I haven't posted any art or well, anything for a while, but here's some Halloween wallpaper for you. Hope you like it!

Till next time...

August Artwork

Yesterday I posted that today I'd have art, so here it is...various ATCs that I've done for the swap groups I'm in. I'm especially fond of the belly dancer doll...her hips wiggle! Although you can't tell from the picture, she has a reinstone in her belly button. I like her so much I almost
don't want to trade her!
I also like the sun/moon ATC. I painted it myself and I think it turned out pretty good.

Hope you enjoyed them! Till later,

My Workspace ... Organized?

Today I thought I'd show you the place I seem to spend most of my time...my kitchen. Well, part of my kitchen. I organized all of my art stuff here at the counter where we're supposed to be able to eat. The area has great light all day, a nice breeze most of the time and best of all, I can cook dinner and still work on projects. Have a look:

Yeah, that's a shoe...I'm altering it to make a doorstop. I'll post pics when I'm finished.
Hey, artwork will be getting posted soon, either tonight or tomorrow. Till then....
