The Tuesday News: Baltimore Oriole Print

Hi there. How are you?
This blog has been long neglected, but I'm to try to step my game. My plan is write a new post every Tuesday. Can you help me stick to it? You have my permission to publicly flog me if I don't post! 

I have to admit, I play favorites. My Baltimore Oriole is so my fave of my bird series. My husband thinks he looks mean. I think he's full of personality! I was thrilled to sell the original Baltimore Oriole piece a couple of weeks ago at holiday craft fair. Now, I can offer the little guy as a print!

The 5" x 7" image is printed with archival pigment based inks on artist quality heavy matte paper. There is a small white border around the print for your matting/framing convenience. It will be signed and titled on the front. At just $12, he'd make a nice holiday gift for any bird nerd. Get your very own Baltimore Oriole print HERE.

One more bit of news....I've got a shop set up over on for the holidays. There's a COUPON CODE over there just waiting for you to use in my shop!

See you next Tuesday. Ta-ta!

CYBER MONDAY! The Sale Continues!

Greetings friends! I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend.

We traveled up to Rockford and celebrated with both Matt's family and mine. (Did I ever tell you that our parents live 2 blocks away from each other? Crazy!) We got to eat a little at both houses. Here are my highlights:  Grandma Vicki's (Matt's mom) sourdough bread stuffing, my mom's Italian sausage bread, my cousin Breana's banana cream pie, and Matt sister Carrie's salted caramel cheese cake. I love my carbs!

We also traveled to Chicago to celebrate my parent's 37th wedding anniversary with them. We shopped, saw a spectacular show (Memphis) and had a dinner I'll never forget at  Rick Bayless's Topolobampo. Our 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings included genius combinations like Foie Gras and sherry, Wagyu ribeye and black mole, bittersweet chocolate cake chocolate-red wine sorbet. The wait staff was incredible and went out of their way to accommodate Matt's food allergies. What a night!

On the Etsy front, my weekend sale continues!

All of my shoppe listings are set up with free shipping, but you have to do a little work to get the 20% discount. Hop on over to my Papernstitch exhibition to score that one, and do check out the other fab artists there while you're there.

Happy shopping! Ta-Ta for now.
