Update on Otis.

Received a new picture of our puppy yesterday. I looked into his eyes & my heart melted. Have decided on Otis for his name. Our old Min Pin is Olivia and our beautiful boy was Oscar. So have decided to carry on the "O" tradition.
Ain't he BEAUTIFUL!!

Bird Crazy!

I have officially gone "BIRD CRAZY".
Just love making bird inspired art. I am in a Bird swap & have made 2 creations so far, just don't know which one to send! Though, maybe I will have another inspiration & make some new Birdie art!
In the first creation, I used the wrong side of the canvas,so I could make it more 3D. I painted, added a Paper Whimsy image & used German scrap bird house & birds. I also used 2 "Collections" birds & some realistic bird eggs.
The second is a 6" X 6" canvas I painted & collaged. Added some more german scrap birds & some Queen & Co felt fusion that I painted to match.
I am really pleased with the results. Post a comment and let me know what you think.

Our new baby!

Last October we lost our beautiful Min Pin Oscar. He was 12 1/2 years old & a joy to have in our life. Unfortunately he had a brain tumour & after months of loving care, we had to make the heartbreaking decision to let him go. He died peacefully in our arms. We will never forget him, he was one of a kind!
After months of soul searching, we decided to search for a new Min Pin. We decided we wanted a black & tan boy, and we are awaiting the arrival of our new puppy in late July or early August. The picture shows him at 5 weeks old. Such a sweetie!
We have a few names for him, but, will have to wait till we meet him in person.
He will be coming to Melbourne from Darwin, can't wait !!
