sistahs!!!! I MISSS YOU and promise to be more a part of your lives..LOL.. it’s been crazy around here. We are all preparing for the cruise (production lines..LOL) having customers sit and help at the store :).. I am also very busy having new stamps and new lines created.. so much fun!!
I wanted to wish my fellow Jewish Sistahs a very happy and healthy and prosperous new year!
So as I mentioned, we are here working away and I KNOW that I have promised these new stamps and with the holidays and my internet being down, I have been a veryyyy lost puppy.. or sistah.
So here goes and I will post as MUCH as I can over the next few weeks!
I love to get to know my artists even though they are far away and it is important that you know a little bit about them as well. So I forced Shelagh to do a little self reflecting and write about herself. Here is a little bit about “ALICE IN PARIS”
I am married with an 18 year old daughter.I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Every day I see the ocean:)
I am self taught, but have always worked with images. I also love photography. I was a film editor and worked as a news camerawoman in Bermuda for a year. Later I became a television producer. When I had my daughter, I became a freelancer and then took up painting.
The internet has changed my life. It has enabled me to work from home. I sell my paintings all over the world. I have terrific new friends thanks to the computer. It has brought me new buisness opportunities.It also entertains and inspires me.
I have a big tabby cat named Monty, before that we had a lovely Rhodesian Ridgeback dog named Sequoia. We grew up with Ridgebacks in our family.
I like to paint happy, whimsical and colourful pictures. I want people to get tiny burst of pleasure when they see my work, whether from the bright splash of colour or the subject. Something to brighten up a day.
I love the colour green, lilacs and lily of the valley, red poppies and peonies. I like homemade lemon meringue pie, turkey dinner with all the fixins and mince & tatties. I love Scotland, Greece, and want to visit India. I love the briney smell of the sea, coffee beans, bookstores and green forests. I llove campfires, old black and white movies and staring up at the night sky.
So there you have it, a little bit of me:)
HOW CUTE IS SHE??????
Ok so what I have decided to do with Shelagh’s stamps is do “INSIDE OUTS”.. so the focal point is the large stamp and then a little mini one to decorate the inside of the card and the envie! LOOOVE it.. it finishes off the card 🙂 See the new stamps launched here
the butterfly kisses for some reason touches my heart 🙂 I actually bought a few prints from Shelagh to put in my house and office 🙂
MWAH.. and I mean BIG FAT JUICY SMOOCHY MWAHS to da sistahs who missed me 🙂
