This magnetic locket set can be purchased on Etsy. It ships directly from Catherine’s studio in the USA so that you are not paying double shipping costs. And if you live in the Saint John or surrounding area you can purchase one from me in person.
It’s quite a lovely track if you ask me!

Fahrenheit Twins are from the Netherlands.
A few days ago Sue from Michigan emailed this lovely photo of George matted, framed and hanging on this bathroom wall.
Initially Sue emailed asking if I could print George at a larger than 8.5 x 11 inch size so that it would cover 12 x 16 inch wall area. I wrote back saying, that while yes, I can print it out at that size, just to keep in mind that once matted and framed a letter sized print would be around the size she had wanted.
She went ahead purchased the letter sized George about a month ago.
Jessica – I have attached my framed print of “George” and he looks wonderful in my remodeled bathroom… Thank you so much for brightening my day – every day – when I look at him. I have received so many compliments on the picture. They all love it.
And continues on after I wrote asking for permission to share the photo with you all here on the blog,
You sure can share it with everyone. You should be so proud of him because every time I look at him, I smile, and that’s so important these days. Being in my bathroom he gets frequented often and it’s so much fun to just look at him and smile.
Have a great weekend and thanks again for your wonderful talent!
Thank you Sue!
George, the pretty fish is available in three sizes…
The Original illustration of George was purchased by a local Canadian Art Collector 18 months ago.
I met Shayla a while back in early 2008 on Etsy. We quickly become friends and even exchange handmade Christmas balls at Christmas each year with each other. While we have never met in real life, she is as dear to me as the friends I have in real life. And above that, she understands what it’s like to work online and be self employed in the fine art and illustration business. She is a beautiful person inside and out.
Shayla lives with her husband and works out of her home studio in Southern California. Shayla will be contributing one blog post each Wednesday to the Art & Musings blog. Her posts will be about… to quote her…
A bit back I suddenly had this burst of an epiphany, from watching Sex and The City no less (which I wouldn’t say I watch regularly or am even a fan of, but there was nothing else on while I was sitting on the ground working on my Christmas balls and now I’m thinking it was bizarrely fated that I watched it.) Anyway, I suddenly saw myself writing a column, a Carrie Bradshaw like column, though discussing art and life as opposed to dating in NYC.
And a bit more about Shyala in her own words…
I paint, and travel, and absorb the universe. And then I paint about those things. My work is a blend of science, Zen style, and Sacred Geometry.
I am inspired by stars, moons, sunsets, tropical beaches, humidity, coloring books, crayons, glo-worms and lite-brites, the Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade, Jules Verne, The Science Channel, ancient technology and civilizations, the study of the universe, spirituality, stained glass windows, sea glass, telescopes, down-tempo music, Zen wisdom, rainbows, fireflies, water and light.
Her first post will be up tomorrow!
Welcome Shayla! xo

After much thought and deliberation of what illustrations to use in 2012 calendars I couldn’t help myself and used all the crazy creatures and fantasy themed illustrations that I’ve been creating over the last year.
The wall calendar is 14 pages and includes a back and front cover. This calendar measures 4.25 by 11 inches (10.5cm by 27.5cm)
The desk calendar measures 4 by 6 inches (10cm by 15cm) and is 12 pages with a neeto paper wrap-around that shows each calendar month on the back.
Each 2012 calendar features a different whimsical creature from The Land of Whimsy for each month including a collaborative piece with author, Christopher DeWan for the month of November. The popular Chasing the Dragon is also featured for the month of September with The Messenger of Whimsy leading you into January.
I print each calendar page using archival ink on cardstock. The wall calendar pages including a front and back cover are bound together with a sheer ribbon while the desk calendar is palced into a sturdy jewell case for display.
The wall calendar is available here.
The desk calendar is available here.

About a year ago I began working on HandmadeCloud with the intent of it becoming a fully digital download shop that would supply individuals, families, teachers, students, interior designers and other businesses with original stock illustration. After many attempts and much frustration to get the site working properly, I decided to switch shopping cart systems. I’m very excited to say that Big Cartel works wonderfully in conjunction with PulleyApp and will serve all your illustration and decorating needs from within the comfort of your own home.
What exactly is a digital fine art download? A digital fine art download is a high resolution scan of an original piece of artwork. It is really no different than a photograph taken with the digital camera. It can be printed on Tshirts, coffee mugs, shoulder bags or even dinner plates. You can print it out on your home printer, bring it into your favorite local printer or upload it to a Print on Demand website and have them print it out at the size you want to later frame for hanging on your wall.

UPDATE – Please see this blog post for the results.
