lots and lots
I have been a bad blogger and blog friend again, you see all the times that I would be in bloglandia, I now find myself with the pup, mister Scribble Gerard (Gerard is said with a thick French accent...my bubs hates it).
The pup is doing well, most of the time....he did have a trying day yesterday when he got so excited to see me, and when I say me, I mean the dog food I was holding, he started to hop on his back legs, like a circus bear...he hopped and hopped and then he fell backwards into his water dish knocking it over and covering him and the floor with a giant splash of water...the poor funny face just shivered and whimpered. I of course panicked and scooped him into my arms and immediately dashed for a cozy towel to blanket him in before he got too cold.
So anyway this weekend apart from dog playing I also hit a huge milestone and got to click off something (sort of) from my New Year's list.
first, I hit 2000 sales in my shop, which is seriously hard to believe on every level, I know I need to thank so many of you for helping me get to this point, I think of all my wonderful buyers and friends everyday and how lucky I am that whatever I am doing is speaking to some of you.
Second I spent a ton of time this weekend working on a book...yes a book of my art.
Now, one of my resolutions this year was to self publish a book of my poetry and art, and this...well this is a step in the right direction.
This book will be just art, no poetry yet.
I am really excited, the pictures today show the cover and a hint of the interior.
now the book will measure 7x7 inches and will be in full color, pages are full bleed with the photos. The books will be VERY limited and will all come signed and numbered, and with an original aceo...tucked in the pages somewhere as a surprise....hey you can even use it as a book mark.
anyway, the books themselves will arrive in about 2 weeks, a little less if I am lucky. I am hoping too that i will be able to get a series of these books.
The book itself it titled "Mixed Emotions" and it will be available in my shop for "Pre Orders" starting today at 9:00am EST.
ok that is all for now, my brain is a little fuzzy as my bubs and I went for dinner and drinks last night and it's been a while since I drank a couple glasses of wine.
