Adventures with Owlet

Hello my artsy blog buddies!  Yes, I'm still here.  Butterfly Girl has been away saving the world again.  Really, she's saving my world.

I've been sooooo busy I don't have any new art to share with you but I have some photos of my adventures with Owlet, coffee cozy.  I got this cool cozy from my Friend Cameron who created and stitched him up in felt (see her fabulous Etsy shop!). 

I've been sharing him with all the hipsters at my favorite Dutch Bros. and they love him!

That day I had a rare 2 hrs. or so to play before reality set back in again so Owlet and I went searching for Edward and Bella in the forest.  It was such a "Twilight" kind of day.  Dark out and a little spooky with a misty rain falling - my imagination took over...

Oh, and by the way Cam, Jasper dog loves him too!  He sneaks him out of my purse, nuzzles him and then gently places him back by my bag.  He has never done anything like that before.  He does it over and over.  Silly dog, he loves Owlet too!

What little time I've had in the studio has been spent on making some less than spectacular Christmas cards.  I sure hope things will settle down so I can have quality time in the studio again soon!  Meanwhile, I have kept a close bond with Butterfly Girl and she has had an adventure or two with Owlet as her sidekick that I will share later on another post.  Currently she is saving the world by gently insisting we all recycle.  So I've been making all kinds of recycle journal signatures and cutting out cereal box covers for them.  More on that next time...

In the studio this week I cued up my favorite Christmas music -  Wintersong by Sarah McLachlan, and I've got a few new CD's to spin later this week too.

Ring those sleigh bells and keep arting my friends!

Forever in art,

Owlet is cute and seems to get around quite a lot. Something nice and warm to keep you nice and warm.

I love your little Owlet, so adorable. I can see why you would want to take him everywhere. How funny that your dog loves him too. I'm so glad to see your post, I was just thinking about you and wondering how you are doing. I hope all is well with you. Have a peaceful and joy filled day! :)
