I'll allow "pinning" as long as you pull up the post & pin from it for a direct link for others. :-)

*sigh* It's Monday...

It's also a holiday, which means that the boys are home from school. The ultimate lesson in patience and tolerance is to have all three boys home at once (they have varying levels of ADHD). I have my middle and youngest son here with me. My oldest got up at 5am and went on a business road trip with DH. They should be back from Nevada in the next 2-3 hours. Couldn't do tons of crafting with the 6 y/o wanting me to constantly entertain him, but I did manage these:

These first two pix are of an adorable little stoneware crock and pumpkin from one of my favorite tole painters, Gail Eads, who has made the wonderful transition into graphic arts. I adore her sets & whatever I can't get at her site, I pick up from either Trina Clark's or DigiWeb Studio. You can see the Copics that I used, along with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen in white for highlighting. Laying it next to those caps gives you a pretty good idea of the size of the graphic.

This sweet baby in purple, is from Trina Clark's "Baby Daisy" line. I picked up the linework set, which appears to be no longer available, because originally my intent was to trace it onto some muslin and stitch up some cute little birth announcements for neighbors with new babies. I will definitely use them for stitching, but for now I thought I'd color the little cutie pie with my Copics (the Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen was for the buttons on her bum). I'm hoping that since Trina is in the process of putting things back into her store (she had a major system crash a few weeks back) that she'll bring them back out, because they really are to die for.

Well, that's it for me today. I may try to color my Squigglefly "freebie" hummingbird tonight while I'm watching the new episode of "House." Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
