Dear Friends,
I hope you all are enjoying your summer and are making time for your creative souls.
I have another month for my knee to be on the mend so I decided to shut the tv off yesterday and put on my lovely "fairy music" (spa channel on sirius radio) and went to my bookshelf to visit some old friends. My wonderful art books.
I looked at all of them, touched their bindings, and as I did I felt like I was almost back in time. I remembered where I bought each one or who gave them to me. It was really a wonderful and special feeling.
I picked out a paperback of AA Milne's (author of christopher robin and house at pooh corner) wonderful poetry about Christopher Robin with the lovely charming little inked illustrations of Shephard's. What an enchanting book! If I read it correctly, Christopher Robin was Milne's son. He wrote a little intro that was really cute and also added that Pooh had gone walking thru the book looking for his friend, Piglet, and sat down on some of the pages! How cute is that?!?
After my time with this book, I felt so peaceful and had such a nice feeling that I havent felt before. I took the time to do a beautiful thing for myself and this morning I woke up and drew all kinds of lovely little things in my sketchbook! I need to give myself a gift of serenity more often!
Do you guys give yourself gifts like this? I would love to hear!
Michelle :)

Dear Friends,
First let me say how lucky I feel everyday to have you all visit with me and how grateful I am for all of your well wishes for me and my little knee injury. Its feeling better because of your lovely words and I want to thank you all somehow.
I wish I could do more but what I am going to do is to give away my newly finished "Sweetie - The Peppermint Christmas Sprite" print to one of you as a thank you.
She has been unfinished for months now and I finally finished her this weekend just in time for Christmas in July and for one of you to win! I havent even listed her on my Etsy shop yet so the winner will be the very first to own her as a print!
All I ask is that you copy and paste her somewhere on your blog along with a link to my blog and come back to this post and let me know that you've placed her little face on your blog.
I will be announcing the winner on August 1st. Good Luck everyone and have a wonderful week full of creativity and joy!
Michelle :)

I have been so inspired lately by all of you and all of your kind words about my art and your healing wishes for my poor knee!

So this morning I did a sketch in honor of the love and friendship that you all bring to my blog and to my heart everyday.

This is for you guys, a really big hug for all of your!

Have a beautiful day!

Michelle :)

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July and saw some great fireworks last night.

I have been drawing and inking some new designs that will hopefully become rubber stamps. I am working with a company that has shown interest in my work so hopefully they will like my little "Wishing Star" Fairy and my new little happy sun!
What have you been creating lately?
Michelle :)
