Whiles Roo was sick, I spent alot of time on the floor with him and his partner Ella-Luna (as I will continue to do for the rest of this week just as a precaution to make sure he's eating his normal amounts). My sketchbook has been my trusty companion and I've been sketching alot...new dolls, new clay character, new card designs, new illustrations, alot of series work...but it was nice to switch gears and to just draw for drawing sake so here is a quick sketch I did from a photograph of ours of our Ella-Luna a couple years ago digging under our back deck. Enjoy...I am off to my beloved bunny filled evening...Until tomorrow's post..Happy Creating and Being.

I am so grateful, again, that I get to stay home with our furry hearts, so that I can spot problems right at the root and also be able to stay by their side 24/7. I am grateful that Jonathan has a job where he can indeed work from home on dire days...because it does take two people for force feedings and injections, etc...
So, I am just popping in today quickly, to first ask that my fellow bloggers and readers who are in tune with my blog and life send some of your good energies our way and hopeful and positive thoughts that our Roo will get better soon....secondly, I know that you'll understand my absence from posting, until Roo is better...when one of our furries is ill, it's entirely consuming for us and we can do little less other than sit by their sides.
Thank You and Hopefully all of your beloved pets are healthful and happy today, Be Well.

So though Christmas is long gone, I hope you enjoy this image nonetheless...tonight I plan to finally pack up all our xmas decorations and such, it was on the agenda for this past Sunday but unfortunately a monster migraine decided to keep me captive in bed!

Even though I don't 100% agree with it...I plan to spend alot of time this year on series work. I do not have any series work really in my portfolio and I think I will only benefit from doing so. Already I have a couple series planned...this Avian series of 5 (and possibly more later on) will be my stepping stone.
Until the next post, be well and Happy Creating. Kufilaw, (meaning 'Take Care') Mandy Saile of Bijou's Whimsy.

I haven't been into the Etsy shop for some time, but that's because I've been planning to re haul what's sold in there....this time round I am going to try necklaces and nubbins instead of originals and prints. Perhaps I'll introduce prints back in when I have more 'series' type of work because that seems to be what people are looking for and therefore buying. But I'll rant about this at another more opportune time!
Join me tomorrow where I'll share some of my 2009 plans with you. Be Well and Happy Creating.

Judit always does a beautiful job and her friends in the frozen Bay are wishing her great success, light and luck. You go girl...ha ha. As always, and not just because she's my lovely and most best friend in the whole world, she's impressed us with her talent and drive.If we could we'd be popping in to bring her some much needed meals during the long & somewhat grueling show hours...but we're there in spirit, she'll do great, we have no doubts. XXOO.
