Have a Sassy Christmas!

This year, I went very simple with presents other than ones to my children. All family and friends are getting tea or chocolates. So when I received a really personalized and thoughtful gift from a friend, I felt that I want give her something a bit more personal in return. I don't usually do paintings as gift, nor do I paint a lot of cats, but here is the opportunity for me to do both. I texted her this morning for photos of her cats and here is what I managed to put paint on paper while my little guy took a nap. Doing these paintings reminds me Christmas is a time for showing your appreciation of people you care about. Thank you for the opportunity my friend ( you know who you are) and you will get your paintings after your trip.

Don't dwell on what is lost...move on and create more

Sigh! Today I finally realized that I have lost some of my original files of my pattern design when my network drive went self destruct a couple months ago. I do have them in a pdf file and have uploaded them to Spoonflower, but I do not have the originals. I found that out as I was exploring the Society6 site and made my artwork available for more products. That part is very exciting so I am not dwelling on the lost too much. I now have my artwork available iphone, ipod covers, and a pillow covers. Please come check it out.  Here is the link Astrid Fox at Society6
