IF DEJA VU

Do you have a feeling like you've seen this image before? That's what deja vu is. However in this case, the truth is, you probably have seen it before. This image and other images with this Harlequin were called Pierrot Love and were very popular back in the 80's. They were on photo albums, stationery and other paper products and I just decided to copy this one for the heck of experimenting with working on black background some more.

NFL PLAYOFFS LINE UP

baThere are 12 teams in the NFL playoffs. Two of them will make it all the way to Super Bowl. I got snowed in today and didn't have to go to work so I decided to do 12 babies in belly in the colors of the 12 playoff teams. I think they came out really cute. And even though I'm rooting for the Saints because I'm married to a Who Dat, I have to say that I like the Bears and Seahawks colors the most.


I'm working on adding them all to my profile, so they all should be available for purchase as soon as tonight, on maternity tops and other items thru my cafepress store.

POLETSY BNR

Tonight my shirt is being featured in Poletsy BNR round 5 on Etsy. BNR stands for Buy And Replace and is this special kind of treasury where once you buy anything from any of the featured store, your store gets to be featured in there as well. I've participated in one of these before and got bought out so I'm hoping for the same this time around. If not, oh well, it's fun anyway:)

AND JUST LIKE THAT IT'S 2011

I know I'm a little late but either way, Happy New Year Everybody! I've had great plans of posting here some Christmas and New Year's wishes but I've been seriously buried between Christmas decorating, cooking, cleaning, having company over from out of town (a bunch of Who Dats - it was a total blast) and finally the New Year and working thru this entire time with only one day off for the holidays. Phew!
It's all over now, Christmas tree's back in the garage, decorations back on the shelfs, started working on summarizing last year just to see how I did and for uncle Sam of course too. And have spent quite a bit of time thinking and planning how I can improve this year, what new products I can introduce and stuff like that. I think I did pretty well and now I have lots and lots of plans for this year and hope to be able to make all of it happen. I'm also hoping to be healthy this time around and not have to waste a lot or any time on doctor's visits. It's not a very good sign that I've started off being sick with a poor sick kitty. On the other hand - it can only get better now:)
Here's what's already happened this year:
I've put some shirts with hearts on them in my etsy store just to kick off the Valentine's season.
I've started on adding a bunch new designs to my got milk inspired collection on cafe press
I've had a 2000th visitor on this blog (at least since I've installed the counter). I don't know who you are but hello there, welcome to my blog!!!
I've finished my first painting this year - a little kitty I named Juno 
and I've gotten a brand new camera that will hopefully help me improve the photograph that are currently in  my stores and draw in new customers. It's a nice shiny black canon and I can't wait to play with it.
As far as the plans... OMG where do I start? I'd like to redo my working space, retake pictures of the items already available for sale, (I'm actually considering using myself as a model this time around?!, that's a very scary thought!), try my best to have at least one new painting a week, one new design a week, one new jewelry item a week and then some more. 2011 here I come!!! watch out!
