It's Over!!!

The ice storm is finally over and everything is getting back to normal! I'm currently trying to catch up on all of my orders... Thanks for everyone's patience while I get up and running again! :)

I hope to have more pictures up soon.. but in the meantime, here are some photos taken by my friend Erik of my street just after the storm. He sent these in to BBC News and were featured on their site! I'm glad its over... Now only two more months of winter to go......

Be Merry! :)

I hope all your Christmas wishes come true! Happy Holidays!

P.S. We still have no Internet, phone, or cable here but we're hopeful it will be soon. There are lots of new ideas for cards, art, and other fun stuff coming in the new year! Be on the lookout ;)

Ice storm

well, I'm sending this from my iphone... (thank you iPhone!!!!!!) We had an ice storm start on last Thursday night. The power went out, and it might be another week before it comes back on! So many trees and powerlines went down in the whole state (of MA), NH too.. The crews are having a hard time clearing the debris to get the lines working again. We were able to get a generator from a friend, so now we have heat, hotwater, a fridge, and some lamps! We also have our woodstoves, which give heat and we've been using it to cook! We've heard it might be another 4-5 days before the power is back. I can't wait to post some photos! I can't do it from my iPhone... (boo) my online stores are also closed temporarily, as I can't use my computer, and we don't have lights in my workspace. We heard it's going to be snowy and icy again tonight or tomorrow.... Hope it doesn't slow down the efforts of the work crews! (thank you workers!!!!!! Can't wait till you get here!) :) So that's about it from here. The sun just went down... Too bad our holiday lights are dark in the windows! Take care all... ~Kelly

Flat Notecards

I recently had a customer request some handpainted postcards from me. I couldn't really come up with a way that would keep the cards safe through the mail with no protection (like an envelope.)

So, I tried my hand at making some flat notecards, with envelopes. I think they came out nice! It was actually harder to make them than regular cards (much to my surprise!)... When I glued them together, I had nowhere to put my hands to hold it down (since anywhere I would hold it was covered with the watercolor paper.) I ended up getting glue all over me! (which I can't stand LOL eww)

Anyway, here's a look! I like how they turned out ;)

I just entered the "Lollishops and Gingerbread" challenge put on by Those who entered were asked to create a gingerbread house using any medium... There will be voting and a winner too! I think I was too late on my entry, but there might be a second round *keeping fingers crossed*


I also just opened my NEW STORE ON LOLLISHOPS this week! I haven't had a chance to see how all the details work, but I have a few new items listed there. I actually created a whole new line of cards for my lollishop... Very detailed with patterns and layers of colors... and of course.. Cuteness! ;)
