More Carnival Gals and a blog award

hi everyone, here is my second Carnival girl/puppet. I called her 'Black Diamond Desmonda', and she goes with the other one I showed a couple weeks back. Her dress is actually a hot pink, but I couldn't get it to show properly due to the lack of sunshine outside.
Not much other  artwork to show, I've been busy the last week, but finally, I've got all my organizing done. It is an amazing feeling to have things in their place, and I know a lot of you commented that you needed to do this as well. Let me tell you, once you do the work and get it done, you will feel like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders, so trust me, it is worth the effort.
We are having some dreary weather right now, it goes from heavy rain, to that fine misty rain. Perfect day to stay in and create!

 Hey! Someone thinks my blog is fabulous, lol! I'd like to say thank you to sweet Lauren at, do check out her blog.
I am supposed to share 5 addictions with you, so here are mine:

1 - I'm addicted to coffee, yes I admit it. I'm sure I've mentioned it in many a blog post, lol!

2 - addicted to sugar. Even though I am trying to cut back, I love my deserts, pies, muffins, scones, they all go so well with my delicious coffee!

3 - addicted to buying art supplies. I can't stop, in fact I am about to buy a couple more paint colors (yeah, like I really need more!) and some wooden panels.

4 - my TV and DVDs. I actually watch very little tv, but I have lots of movies and TV series. Right now I'm going through Touched by an Angel Season 2

5 - Last but not least, I'm addicted to my computer....I'm on it way too much, and I sure love reading my blogs. Especially while drinking coffee and enjoying my dessert :-)

I would like to pass this award to anyone who would like it, since there is no way I could choose only 5, so feel free to share your 5 addictions. I'm a very curious gal....

Thanks for Reading!

Congratulations on your award! It's well deserved. I LOVE this series of carnival gals - each one is even prettier than the other. There seems to be something lurking beneath the surface with these girls...very sweet but also so mysterious! Theresa

Hi Betty, believe it or not, I would love to have just a little bit of your weather.. can we exchange a bit?... It's so hot and humid in Florida right now and I work outside... I almost die every day of heat exhaustion!!!!!!
You are so right, I guess there are some of us who are more "art restless" than others and thats not a bad thing either, I have to accept that about me!LOL!
I have never been in a Japanese paper store and hope I never find one in deep fear that I will be sucked into the void of beautiful origami paper and my family would never find me again!HAHA...
Oh and congrats on your award you so deserve it! Your blog IS fabulous! and so is this beautiful painting... LOVE it! :D Patti

Michele said...

What a beautiful new carnival girl!

Ahhh yes, I am addicted to sugar , my computer too and also my Tivo and tv shows / dvd's!

Plus farmville and having too many projects at once! lol

Thanks for entering my blog giveaway, love your puppet/doll/girl!!
I print my own art prints at home, I invested in a good home printer, unfortunately I still needed someone to print and make me some mirrors and magnets because I don't have the machines needed for that, they were the ones that were rubbish!!! I'm in the UK too so it's harder to find decent printers here than in the USA...I so wish I had the things that our American friends can get their hands on ;)

Your work is incredibly charming and this gal is not exception.

I am in the process of remodeling my office into my dream studio. It truly is a process but each time I take a step like putting up paint samples or getting rid of something I haven't looked at in 10 years, I feel a little piece of weight lifting not only on a physical level but it seems to free up space in my mind as well.

Cheers and hugs!
