Gone Too Soon

This is a real quickie post. Just wanted to do an obvious shout out to all MJ fans out there. It's the one year anniversary of his death already and I can't believe how fast that year passed. He's gone but not forgotten. His music, spirit and compassion for humanity and the well-being of our planet will hopefully live on forever in the young people of our world. We never can say goodbye...

RIP Michael.
xoxo with love.

Bits n' Bobs!

The photograph that I've uploaded here is an example of my shoddy picture taking skills! I guess all that caffeine that I consume daily adds up to a real unsteady hand and blurred vision. Anyhow, it was meant to be of an acrylic painting that I did for Dana Martin's (of Dana Martin Writing from previous post) graduating daughter. I tried to include all her faves on an 11 by 14.5 inch illustration board. I didn't get to scan it in on time so I had to sew a series of really unclear photos together using Photoshop. If anyone has any better methods for getting good archival pictures of large all means, I'm all ears.

The other illustration is for a business card that I whipped up for an ole' friend of mine who is now starting up her own photography business. She's the sweetest so please be sure and visit Kimberley Lynn PhotoGRAPHY for giveaways and other fun stuff!

xoxo With Love.

For Dana..

So kids, I've been missing in action for a while now but I must say that I have been a bit busy and uh enjoying the wonderful Toronto heat waves. Plus its been a month of excellent TV (FRINGE and LOST finales...don't worry no spoilers here) to catch up on and along with painting and of course the eternal job hunt...that's been all my days done up to now!

I did a little something for a writer friend of mine over in Cali that I think she will use for her business. I was quite happy with the outcome and hope to do much more work for Dana in the future. We already have another fun project in the works...details to follow soon!
You can catch up with her and all her writings at Dana Martin Writing.


xoxo With Love.

Invitations Ready!

This is going to be a really short post since I have a tonne of work to do and only just logged on now. I can finally post these wedding shower invitations that I created for a friend's party. I've been so busy just running around looking for a new job and apartment while trying to keep up with art projects and other commitments that I've been neglecting my online friends!

I had one of my good friends in town last week so that was really nice getting a chance to catch up with her. On a similar note, I've also reconnected with some really old friends from University. It's so strange to chat to them now...I haven't spoken or seen these girls since like '96 so it will be nice to actually see them in person too. We are meeting this Saturday at a BBQ so that should be loads of fun.

I'm thinking I want to do more of these cards. Not just for showers..but for all occasions. Birthdays, Thank you notes, Get well cards..maybe holiday cards...what do you guys think out there? They're pretty small, 4 x 6 and were relatively inexpensive to print.

Gotta run for now..
xoxo with love.

Happy Bloggerversary to me!!

Hey Everyone! I know it's been a while but I have been a bit busy and also a little under the weather. Aside from that..I've spent some time basking in the (albeit temporary) Toronto sunshine and then the rest of these past days holed up in my house just catching up on TV and flaking out on the sofa! I'm still wearing my Xmas PJ's to boot! I have turned into somewhat of a couch potato, I must admit. It's been the recurring theme in my art as well! Ah well, for today I will blame that on the rainy, stormy weather! I have managed to get some work done though.

Monday was the one-year anniversary for my blog and website. I didn't do much in the way of celebrations but I did eat a lot of cupcakes to compensate for not having a party!! Anyhow, I haven't been the best at keeping either site updated but promise to regularly to do so. Also I have set up a Facebook Fan Page so if you are on Facebook please join and show your support. I hope to have giveaways and frequent updates of events and shows that I will be attending.
I hope everyone had a fabulous EASTER long weekend!

xoxo with love.
