|Limited Edition Frankenbread Men wrapping paper from Spoonflower. Hopefully it comes back next year.|
Speaking of outdated Christmas stuff. Spoonflower had this AWESOME promotion thru the Holidays. They were selling wrapping paper! So you could have a custom printed roll of wrapping paper. I, of course, jumped on it and ordered 3 rolls of Frankenbread Men paper plus a roll of the "Key L-eye-me Cupcake" and "Clownie Cupcake"designs. The package in the photo was an Etsy purchase going over to the UK. The recipient's husband asked if I could gift wrap his order. Alison, the recipient told me she was very excited about both the gift and the wrapping paper. Glad to make someone's holiday a little brighter. . . especially since his gift didn't get there until after Christmas.
Let's continue shall we?
I've been toiling away on a couple of commissions, working, and trying desperately to finish some unfinished projects. All of which I've been documenting on my Facebook Fan Page. So for the Facebook Followers that stumble upon this update, sorry for rehashing stuff you've already seen, but I gotta update the blog.
First up. . . I have a horribly unhealthy addiction to the Grumpy Cat (which you can see above). She reminds me of my cat Fluffy (RIP Fuzzball). That cat was the crankiest cat I've ever seen, but super tolerant. Every time I picked her up, or tie a bow around her neck, she'd just growl. I probably drove my mom nuts making that cat growl all day. Anyway, in my head, Fluffy would make the same face as Grumpy Cat.

At the same time I was doing those paintings I was helping a family member make a design for her ranch. I'm still working on it. Family members can either be the most laid back clients, or the most demanding, so I still have a bit more to tweek. (I won't be posting this commission online.)
I'm going to pause here and say that commissions for the first half of 2013 are CLOSED right now as I get ready for a couple of gallery shows.
Lastly, and most important on a personal level, is that after three years of work I can proudly say that I finished my valentines IN TIME FOR VALENTINE'S DAY!! If interested, you can see previous posts about them, here and here. Any-who, the valentines were sent to the printer, envelopes were purchased along with some RAD-ASS Avery Small Business Solutions Display Cards w/ Baggies (and a few pieces of card stock and Epson Premium Presentation Paper) and they were all assembled into this set.

Here's what's happening so far in 2013:
