Thanksgiving is over...

The Fat Man in the RED suit is on his way!

This is my little Dancin' Mousie...

I had never had a reason to draw mice before...or the desire...but a request last year lead to a series of cute, little, chubby mice that have been a hit with our 'stampers'.

This is where all my
'creative sparks' start to
come together...I love my studio!
White walls, colored tiled floors...(green, red, mustard, & white)...
I love to come here every morning and let my 'muses' do their work!


This is my view...the infamous
'bulletin board'...
covered with things that inspire me!
I'm not the neatest person,
but it works for me...
I say whatever works...
by the looks of it I might need
to add a few new things,
what do you think?

Man's Best Friend...

Yup...I've got DOGS on the brain...I have been drawing dogs, dogs and more dogs. Thought we needed more dogs in the stamp I have been sketching, terriers, afgans, scotties...even mutts...and I think we have some rather whimsical and sweet new dogs for some stamps! It seems that the designers out there can't get enough of those 4 legged my goal is to just give them what they want...Please meet 'Baguette'...
our little bag dog................ENJOY!

Actually the last 2 weeks have been crazy...getting all of our Design Team in order...for our company, Shirleys2Girls, in case you don't know the name? What a hoot and a blast it has been! Kristine & I can't believe the kind of women that are part of the 'stamping' world...generous, would be the best word to describe them...but also, creative, fun, a little crazy...and we love them! this year is going to be an unbelievable one...First off, we have President Obama...then we have Hilary Clinton as Sec of State...and then we have the sisters whose business S2G's, is going like crazy! Our minds are spinning so fast, somedays I feel like I need 3 or 4 of me, the ideas are coming so fast...not enough time! May I have a 48 hour day please? We are working on papers and exciting...
I'm off to bed for so much needed rest, although these days I find it hard to finally 'turn off' my mind...I'm having too much fun!

TA TA for now.......Deidre

Tis the time for movies and popcorn!!! Went to see 'Last Chance Harry'...with Dustin Hoffman & Emma Thompson, what a sweet, nice, adult love story(no car crashes or murders)...we can always use that!
I have been toying with what to use and how to make my DOLLS hair...experimenting, I never know where it might lead me! I am going to do some 'felting' tomorrow and that should be fun, never done that...I really want to get back to doing more watercolor sketches...I'm thinking of my travels in Venice and that is a great place for me to start! If I can't find Italy inspiring then, I'm in trouble!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

AHHH...I feel like a nap!
What is that 'fluffy white stuff ' falling from the sky again? This just doesn't happen here! But, I guess it's happening so I'm going with it...I must say it is beautiful, looks like every tree and shrub has been dusted with 'powdered sugar'...yummie!
I am now working on a whole new body for a DOLL...I have not been happy with the patterns that I have made so far from the DOLL magazines... SO...why don't I just make my own pattern? CRAZY...NUTS...but why not? I'll put a picture on soon, I'm on my 5th set of legs...not happy yet!

Coming soon...a whole new BODY!
