Goodbye 2010...

My last painting of 2010! :)
Altered prints of this painting can be purchased here!

It is with a great big sigh that I say goodbye to 2010. This year took me on a twisted curvy ride.
  • Moved TWICE - saying sad goodbyes to close friends and neighbors.
  • Visited France... and never wanted to leave! 
  • Upon returning from France, one week later I started a full time job, which left my studio & blogging time chopped in half.

On the greener side of the grass.... I am healthy (although I am feeling a little more plump these days). And my kids are safe and sound. In the end, that is all that really matters! 
    2010 - You left me overwhelmed with chaos and clutter...but I have great plans in store for 2011 - so buckle up! :)

    Thanks for taking the time 
    to see what I've been up to all year!!

    Swap Swamped!

     I think I got a little carried away with the blog swaps this year... I must have signed up for anything that crossed my desktop....  Don't get me wrong I LOVE every last bit of it, but I procrastinate and then I seep into perfectionism.  Both of these get the best of me up to the very sec before deadline.

    This is my third time participating in Zan's swap.  I am not a doll maker by any definition of the sort, but I do have fun making these whimsy creations and hope their new homes enjoy them as much as I do making them.   

    Here is my latest doll swap creation made for Jan of The Hermit's Garden.  We both decided to create studio elves for each other.

    Clothed in canvas, stuffed with sweetness and handpainted with good lucks! I love his little scarf, it was by accident that it curled up as if to be blown by a blizzardy breeze. My sweet little elf is on his way to Texas!


     Hosted by Louise at Dream, Inspire Create.
     THE CHALLENGE: You can only use the colors: 
    Red, Green or Gold

    three tweet treats 
    (say that 5 times fast )

    Many Thanks! 
    • Thanks to Zan and Louise for hosting the swap!
    • Thanks to my swap buddies, I am very excited to see what comes my way!!!
    • And thank you for taking the time to see what I've been up too!
    :) xoxo - Kim
