Just a little bit about my art and life in general....

February a month of hearts

Good morning! Yes it is despite the extreme cold. My youngest (still 7 for another week) was up early busy getting ready for school and brushing her teeth and doing all her morning chores before I even woke up! She even had a cup of coffee waiting for me with a bunch of hugs on the couch (morning cuddles). Yes this is a good morning. We had plenty of time to play "ice hockey" on the driveway while waiting for the bus. She was so cute. Usually her plan is to win but today she had to work very hard because she wanted a tie. I wonder what goes on in their little heads to make them want to be so agreeable sometimes and at others so impossible.

I'm in love with this cute little hen sent on a card from one of my customer's seamstress. Its a blue polish frizzle and the photograph is by Stephen Green-Armytage. He has an awesome collection of photos of beautiful chickens. My friend and I have been eyeing the McMurray Hatchery website too thinking of a spring order of chicks.

I peeked into the Etsy forums and found a way to see if I had been on the front page of Etsy. As much as I love their front pages I have very little time to look at them frequently enough to check. But over on Flickr I was able to find out from a collection of front page pictures. I just typed my username into the search option at the top right portion of the page. Wow. I never knew. Not that its a big deal or anything but still nice to know.

That chicken is beautiful, it looks like a made up character.
