Sweet Slumber Dreams

There is a place i seem to be longing for, a place i knew well but can't quite remember, a place where summer evenings lull me to sleep with the sound of dogs barking far away and birds chattering their sleeptime songs...its a place where children go to bed before it is dark and see- through curtains float with the breeze. I think this bed would be in this place.

Sweet Serendipity

Little Monster by Cori Dantini

Striking Thought by Cori Dantini
I am hooked on Etsy. Its day 2 for me and i've already been chosen as someone's favorite!

Not just any someone but Cori D. from the first PikaPackage. I am so happy. What was so serendipitous was the fact I opened up Etsy to see the latest picks and noticed a most stunning blue bird image , went to it and accidentally clicked on this person's favorites and saw one of my pieces...i investigated some more to find that I have this lovely artist's site in my bookmarks. And then "poof" i got lost and couldn't find the bird or how i got to her page.

Crazy wonderful weirdly perfect universe!
Thanks Cori !

July Pikapackage time!

Its that time again! the big PikaPackage reveal #2. I actually got it together for this one!
check it out I just opened my shop and am slowly adding new prints to the menu, it is so fun to wake up and see that someone has been peeking while i was sleeping!
When i saw my print on Pikaland's website my tummy did a little flip. AMY NG is some kind of art angel...she has been so wonderful to me! Thank You Amy! - xxoo milady

The Truth

The Truth of the Matter is i'm waking up. Waking up to myself as an artist, a dreamer, a creator, a tinker, a mother, a person with a chronic illness who still feels the future is laid out before her like a glistening yellow brick road but it ain't just me and my little dog too...its a whole bunch of people and animals and a life i've created that requires alot of me. Its all good, make no mistake, yet i find myself yearning for aimless me time more and more. It is in this dreamy doodle time that the big ideas emerge out of twisted ink and colored pencils. This time is golden and often robbed by all that must be done. This blog is my way of keeping the golden flame aglow.

red shoes

I have a thing for red shoes, not just any red shoes, but magical red shoes. they make me feel happy. maybe its the Dorothy aspect, or the romanticized childhood charm...i dunno...its just a love of mine.
again, its so reassuring to discover that others do too. here are a few of my latest finds out there.
