A meek post

Sorry I've been quiet lately. Meant to do an Easter post of something but we ended up getting slammed by several severe storms in a row (tornado warnings, terrible thunder, etc.) that I just haven't had time. :/ I've also been busy working on my next book featuring Jack and Machu once again. ;) It's coming along swell so far and I'm really excited with the way it's looking.

On another note, I've discovered A place to get 50 and 60% off vouchers for specific Etsy shops. If you're familiar with Groupon, it's sort of like that, only for Etsy. Each day a new vendor is listed that you can get a voucher for. Some of the deals are really awesome. Moments ago I just got a $30 spending voucher and only paid $12. It was for the lovely shop, JustJaynes. I'll have to upload photos of what I ordered when they arrive and show off her wonderful work.

Until then, feel free to use this invitation link for their site. :D (You should get a $5 credit with this link.)

Heartsy - Daily deals on fabulous handmade items, at least 50% off.

Some trinkets and treasures

Just some little trinkets and treasures I made over the weekend. The treasure boxes were originally light brown, unpainted and came in a set of three. I couldn't find the third one at the time but went ahead and painted the other two in shades of blue, pink, and pastel orange. They came out really well. The copper necklace details on the larger box were made sometime ago and I never finished it into a whole necklace so it fit perfect here.

The trinkets are pretty various. Mostly scrabble pieces, discounted Christmas items and odds and ends I've been hoarding for awhile. Glad I finally got to make good use of them. The photos came out a bit brighter then I thought. The colors are slightly more neon then they really are.

The Devil's Party

Pen and ink drawing on paper, colored with photoshop. I also used part of this as my newest header. I also included a little Studio Ghibli love by adding Totoro. I've not yet seen My Neighbor Totoro but I've fallen in love with Spirited Away and Kiki's Delivery Service. Am planning to try to find the other studio Ghibli movies as soon as I get a chance. I know they're cartoons but the food in them always makes my mouth water. LoL!

Another Birthday

Here's a card I did last night for a friend's birthday today. Drawn in ink, colored with water colors and colored pencils.
