Sundays Designs

This is the Big cupcake that I am working on. I love working on these. They are just plain fun to do.
I wanted to post the pictures that will be on Ebay this Sunday March 2. but, there is a problem with the pictures here on the blogger. They are a picture of my beautiful puppy, Oreo playing with yarn and yet another fun cupcake. This cupcake is a big one. Really cute. I will try to upload them later.
My sister in law and I are starting a business that has to do with dogs. I will let you know more that later as well.

Back to work.

Today I worked on a piece for the puppy. It is really cute. I will have it posted tomorrow and then for sale on Sunday. I was sad to hear about Myron Cope. He was sick for a long time but, we will miss him. We are big Steeler Fans here.

We had a very good week

...considering. I was working on this piece as my son Blake and the new puppy Oreo played on the chair beside me. As often happens with puppies she got excited and peed on the floor. I picked the dog up and took her outside and came in to clean the pee. My three year old son started to lecture me about puppies as he was making corrections to my drawing with colored pencil. If you don't know colored pencil doesn't erase completely. He said I wasn't making the frinkles right! I was almost done with it. Another hour later I was able to fix all of his corrections. Just another day in the life of an "ArtMom." The finished piece is for sale now on EBay, id "mylittlecornerdesign"

My New Puppy!!!!

It is a girl and the kids named her Oreo because of her black and white hair. She is a 10 week old "Shiz a Poo." She is totally adorable but, has caused my work to suffer with potty training and stuff.

About the artwork...

Ok, my artwork will not suffer with the addition of this new business. I have been working on new drawings that you can see right now on Ebay under my id mylittlecornerdesign . I am working in a new direction with the drawing.
The truth is I love to draw. I have since as long as I remember. The only reason that I started painting is because of my need to start an income on Ebay. The downside to the paintings is that they are so hard and expensive to pack and ship. Also, my studio is freezing as Mike and I decided to save some money in fuel costs by using our fireplace to heat our poorly insulted 100 year old house. So the solution seems perfect to me. I will draw beautiful low cost drawings that are super easy and cheap to ship and can be produced in my living room in front of the fire.
Yes I am living the dream!!!!

I know...I know

I have been terrible about updating this blog. I am sorry. The truth is I have been super busy with my business. I have started a side business on ebay of selling Gymboree clothes with my daughter Autumn and it has taken more time than I thought. It has been worth it so far because the clothes and my artwork target the same audience so I think in the long run it will pay off in more traffic for my website.
