Busy Blessings

Happy Sunday all! I must share my shame that it's 2:30 in the afternoon, and I'm still in my pajamas....Oh, I've been up for many hours, but as usual, I'm so eager to get going on all my projects that I forget to take care of myself first. Sigh. I've had about 3 cups of coffee, and have not yet eaten lunch. Everyday, I have to try to remind myself to slow down, eat a good breakfast, pull myself together and join the living! I could probably be shut in my studio for days if I lived alone...hmmm, possibly looking like "the crazy cat lady" from the Simpson's, covered in paint, and muttering to myself. Well, now that you know my dark secret, I'm going to share a few of my creations from this past week. :D

"Day of the Dead" Ballerina ~Sold~

Custom Cat Wall Hanging "Hootie and Wicket"

Skeletal Bird Jewelry Box ~Sold~

Oh, loving the ballerina and the kitties. If it's any consolation, it's 5:15, and I'm in pjs with black hair dye on my noggin! Sometimes, getting dressed is over-rated.

Illustrated Ink said...

Hee, hee! It's good to know that I'm not alone! ;)

Well lady it,s 6pm and I've just put on a skirt to water my plants on the balcony, else I would have remained bottomless :P

that jewelry box is so precious!
You're truly inspiring, I see some things I never looked at in thrift stores with a different eye know!

Laura said...

When I have no plans to go out, I have my own set of being home pj's or old tees that were the bf's...

I love those kitties and the jewellry box, that I saw sold in minutes! You have loads of talents girl, pj's or no pj's! ;)

Wendy said...

Leila, you know you're going to have to make double of everything for your customers! I was SO bummed when I saw your kitties sold...perhaps many more kitties in the work? I have two kitties so really loved this one. Well, actually all of your work. And as for "lazy Sundays" everyone needs what I consider "snail days" where you just move sllllowwwwly. Sundays are my days too, no getting dressed, no cooking, just as Sundays are meant to be; a day of rest ;) Congrats. again on your success!

Michelle said...

Sounds like a lot of us are guilty of working the day away in our pj's, myself included! I have coffee and start painting. And you got busy last week! Wow! Some gorgeous stuff! I especially LOVE the jewelry box! Now, go eat something :) Blessings!

You are definitely not alone on the pjs thing. I've wandered out to my work table thinking I was going to do one quick thing and then go change and before I know it hours have passed!

I love that jewelry box and the kitties another amazing week for you. :)
