I finished my latest WIP! Summer brings many wonderful things, but studio time is not one of them. That is not necessarily a bad thing. It makes us slow down and enjoy things more. A lot of the time I have more than one project going on, and this is only in my art life, real life is a whole other story:-) This past month has been no exception. The difference is that with the kids home from school, and limited studio time, I am forced to slow it down. I have several writing projects in the works, and last week I pulled a couple of very late nights getting a couple of journals ready to send to the publishers, but I also have spent lazy afternoons at the pool with kids, doing absolutely nothing. Evenings are spent BBQ-ing, and visiting with friends and neighbors, and an occasional trip to the lake is squeezed in. Ahhh, wonderful!

All of the little extra details are done. Check out the cross-hatch detail on her hat, the little string attaching the price tag to the hat, and the little buttons on her dress. Tiny little things that add to the whole. The flowers are from napkins, inspired by Sharon Tomlinson’s amazing work. Little bits and pieces, gathered from here and there, that together, complete the picture. ‘Summer’s Gifts’ is available in my etsy shop. Wouldn’t you give 5cents for a cute hat like that? Happy summer day friends!
