Gah! I feel like I have been neglecting my blog <sniff, sniff>.

Well, as previously mentioned, we (the husband and I) are busy with moving preparations. I have been squeezing in a little creative time, though. For instance, the other night I was working on a rain-inspired piece, while listening to “Rain is Falling” (ELO), as it was pouring outside.

My response was to stare blankly for a minute, with my mouth open. And laugh at the craziness of that coincidence.

Also, I worked on another piece prior to the rain one:

The title “Leaf S’plosion” comes to mind, but only because I was in a goofy mood when I thought of it. I wanted to play around with color, pattern, and using found texture. I like the feel of it- I think I will keep exploring this way of working.

Now that we’re moving, I thought it would be a good time to move my blog, also. I have a portfolio site ( As you can see by visiting, it is not yet complete. But, it will be the new home for my blog.

I’ll be sure to stay in touch with the blogs I follow and my awesome followers on the new one. Hopefully, I’ll be able to transfer this one to it; we’ll see how that goes.

Anywho, I will keep you all updated on that. Thank you so much for taking an interest in my work. It really means a lot to me. It can be a lonely, weird situation, making art in a little studio by yourself. The feedback and support from the blogosphere is wonderful! :)

Bye for now,



Here’s another one:

I wanted something fresh and pretty for my wall. I am going to be moving out of state in the next month (yowza!). It’s got me thinking about my new apartment, studio space, etc. – and how to make it awesome.

I am such a nerd- I’ve already started sketching out the layout, based on the floorplan I got from my new landlord. I just love thinking about it!

I’ve been working on a couple new pieces this week. Here’s one of them:


This squirrel is so cute, I wish he was my friend. We could talk about the weather, the status of acorns, neighborhood dogs, and kite flying . . .

I’ll have to share the other piece soon, hopefully next week sometime.

See you later!

I made a little Easter card, which is available as a free download! You can use it as a place card, note card, or tuck it in your Easter baskets.

I recommend printing on a good card stock while using the matte photo settings on your printer. (Also, the download doesn’t include “To: Michael, From: Abbie.” That middle section is blank, so you can fill in your own names or messages.)

Please note, this download is for personal use only.

The download is available here:

Thank you, I hope you enjoy it! And Happy Easter :)

Mike and I recently saw the Descendants (it’s as great as you’ve heard, in my opinion). That spurred this latest drawing:

Sandpipers! They are out looking for something tasty. I’ve also fallen in love with the soundtrack. Must purchase…

It’s been so warm out, lately…I feel like my life has been fast-forwarded to May. With that feeling in mind, I’ve been working on a new piece:

It needs a bit of editing, but is nearing completion. I am finishing these pieces, I swear! :)

I also experimented with making some stickers today. I’m pretty excited about the results…I hope to share with you soon!
