Somebody stop me

Seriously...I need to go to Birds Anonymous or something like that. I'm obsessed with them. I just bought two antique bird books last week, so the madness is likely to continue. Beware...

I also found a cool little tool at a craft store that leaves a dotted trace when you trace the wheel on the wax paper. The effect is really neat. Not sure what the tool is called, but I think it's something that quilter's use for patterns.

I was asked to donate a piece to Humane Society fundraising event being held next weekend at the Uptown. I did this piece tonight, but it's small and simple. The colors don't look as great on the computer as they do in person. I'm nervous about it. I'm considering doing another one just because I will be in attendance at the auction. When nobody bids on it then poor Chris will end up having to pony up the minimum bid just to save face. Maybe I will go in disguise.

I'm looking forward to taking some time off from commissions and donated auction items and just working on inventory for Village Pointe. If anyone will be in Omaha between September 14 and 16, stop by lucky booth #13.

I like the one you did for the auction! It's really pretty. Did you trace the shape for the dog or was that free hand?

Thanks Caitlin. You are on to me. I traced it from an image out of an antique dog book. I can't draw to save my life!
