ice cream dream

Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project!

This time, it's teeny-tiny.  They're called MOO cards, apparently.  I'm kind of assuming that the name comes from the company that prints teeny tiny business cards.

I made them because one of the companies that I looooooooooove as a source for hilarious/intriguing rubber stamps is running a contest.  I entered, of course.

The expression on that dog's face is priceless.
From left to right, they are titled "Soleil" and "The Joker" and finally "Ice Cream Dream."

Or maybe it's a nightmare when you dream that you are nothing but a scoop of ice cream.  I don't know.

I am really, truly glad that I snapped this photo right after I finished drawing these cards, because *somehow* they all disappeared from the coffee table.
 Either my artwork went for a walk by itself
(highly unusual behavior - my artwork tends to be more of a couch potato)
...or someone four-footed and furry took them for a walk.
Ahem.  Taco.  He brought back "Ice Cream Dream" from wherever it was hidden...only now there is a fang mark in the corner.

Such is life with a feline.

cats have many secrets

This one I sent out as a reply to Ann-Marie, who is fantabulous-ness personified.

flapper dress shopping with an owl

"After a very successful shopping spree, Cheryl was feeling fine and ready to raise the roof."

This hot little number came from Lynn, who keeps an interesting blog over at Sunny Room Art.

Ahh, fringe-covered, flapper-inspired dresses, and shopping! What's not to love?

I need to remind myself not to go on too many shopping sprees this month, because I tend to use my birthday as an excuse to buy things I've had my eye on for a while.
Art supplies.
The list is nearly the same every year, in terms of categories, although the products change.  This year I want a pair of leggings that are purple and black and yellow and covered in a linear, tribal, triangular pattern.  Shh, don't tell, but I already bought them. The temptation was too great.
(Also, they will look fabulous with boots and dresses!)

Cheers to shopping sprees you can afford!   *clink*

math people

'Nuff said.

I sent this dude off to a friend a few months ago.
The background is a few pretty messed up sudoku puzzles that I did, back when I was on a sudoku kick ... (literally all summer long).

(How is is this anthropomorphic?
Maybe math brings out our inner animal.
I always used a trusty textbook to squish nearby threatening - possibly poisonous - bugs.)

victorian lady kitty

Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project!

I did promise that I would show Marsie's second submission.
Here it is!

Isn't she a lovely Victorian lady?
Look at all that gold! So shiny!
I'm really digging the gold lace doily pieces - it adds a nice texture & shine.
Thanks, Marsie!
(Don't fret, my replies are on the way, now that I'm back home!)
