Sale on Blythe Doll Items

Standard

I’ve obviously gone off in a new direction, so I’ve marked all the Blythe Items in my etsy shop down 50%….no coupon code, no fuss just a flat out Sale.  I’d really appreciate you’re taking a look – my goal is to sell out and be done with all but my Blythe sweater pattern – I’ll keep that going as it’s so inexpensive and people seem to really like making their own little Blythe Doll Sweater.

This is the twelfth sheep in this series…..I’m sure I will do more and probably work towards doing a calendar.  I would like to add some Holiday sheep in, and some occasions as well.  But I’ve done a sheep a day for the last little while, and I have some other commissioned work I want to get done, my Derwent Academy classes to finish and some tutorials on colorwork I want to study.  I’d like to add some colored pieces to the collection.  As it is, I have a decent amount of original work done for the show in September, so anything I add now will be a bonus.  As with anything you see here or on Redbubble, the originals are for sale.  Just contact me and we will work out the details.

Peace

Standard

Someone said “if you make a sheep with a peace sign, I’m so buying that”….

That was actually not even a thought in my mind, but once she mentioned it, I had to draw it out.  I was nervous about it, wondering if I had got it right for her and was thrilled when she liked it so much she purchased a few things from the redbubble shop with this design!  That really is a confidence boost for me.

We had a quiet Fourth – ran some errands, caught up on stuff around here, had a de-licious dinner together.  We are usually traveling by the time the Fourth of July rolls around, so this was different for us.

Just in case all you think I do is Sheep now…..

I loved working on this as it was challenging and fun at the same time.  I might do another in color after I make my way through the Derwent Academy Master Class – there is a class on colored pencil that I think will unlock some doors for me.  By the way, if you take this free course, which consists of 6 classes, you get to pick your choice of Derwent pencils for FREE and a certificate.    Did I say this was all FREE….you submit your class work at the end of each class and then you’ll hear back from them when you can go on to the next.  I’m on the second class and I’m waiting to hear back – they seem to be fairly quick about it.   From their main page you click on the “Art Academy” circle at the top and go from there.

Enjoy the weekend!

I hope you have a wonderful day, whatever you may be doing.  Thank you to our Son and Daughter-in-law and  all the Brave, who keep this this Land of the Free.

We had some nasty weather yesterday, wicked thunderstorms and a tornado  passed by us and just a few minutes away from us, people are without power, trees down, property damage.  We had some good sized hail as it was going by, but other than our canopy moving a few feet,  and losing power for about 5 minutes, we were very lucky.  Stay safe out there!

Sheep Zen

This one came to me on our motorcycle ride on Sunday….I don’t know why I think of things like this.

Hard to believe we are almost celebrating the 4th of July!  The humidity is oppressive and thunderstorms were all around us yesterday.  Today’s weather is supposed to be much of the same.  There is Hurricane Arthur making his way up the coast towards North Carolina – be safe!

It is so nice to be able to incorporate my favorite things to do into these Tangles.  I would love to be able to somehow have a sheep weaving, too.  I do have a  preliminary sketch of a “zen” sheep meditating….and another of a Mama Ewe watching over her sleeping lamb.

I’m fortunate to have the time to give to this project and I’m going to try to use every moment wisely.  These summers off fly by so fast.

I’ve gotten a lot of new followers and likes but no comments…..please don’t forget I’m having a contest and I think I’d be really embarrassed if I didn’t have any participants.  Go.  Comment…..Please?
