My FIL, a passionate family man, died yesterday at the age of 65. He was battling a number of problems, most loudly of which was his shoulder pain, but none of which caused his demise. Basically, his heart had no more fight left and when challenged by a new infection, it couldn't beat heard enough.
I know there are many people who were touched by him. He was born and raised on the jersey shore but his reach was vast. Once while in Kinkos in NYC, my husband mentioned his name at the counter to a clerk and a person behind us in line began to sing his commercial jingle!
Thank you all for listening.

Last night I spent the evening redesigning my business card. Yes, I said redesigning. I also worked on a label to put on the back of every item sold. This is after i spent the morning coloring one of the cutest dollies ever then couldnt get the damn scanner to capture the color in her face correctly.
Today my goal is to draw something new. i am not quite sure what it is going to be but it will be new. I want to go into this fair with 10 fabulous drawings that are of unquestionable quality.
If you are interested in stopping by, my fair schedule is listed here. Pass it on to your friends, lots of fun will be had by all!

As the new year is quickly approaching, I was so happy to find these beautiful holiday cards from right here in New Jersey.
The images on the cards are collages created from pieces of old batiks.

In preparation for the beginning of the holiday fairs I will be participating in, I have been working feverishly on new illustrations. The new one shown, Wine Bottles, has not been colored in yet, but I think it looks pretty good this way too.
Other then that, I have been trying to figure out a way to bring in more fans to my facebook fanpage. I hate the super long URL and you can only change it once you have hit 100 fans. I am more then halfway there, but it is a very slow process. Maybe a giveaway?
Enjoy your holiday weekend, and be sure to take advantage of all the labor day sales on handmade. Make sure to search etsynj, etsytwitter team, and etsyknitters for great deals!
