A Rainy Day, Bluebirds and Inspiration

I love rainy days when I can stay home and get cozy.

It gives me an opportunity to design things.  Rainy days make me feel creative.

I created this digital illustration using an oil painting I did a while back.  I call it "Choices"

Of course, one thing led to another...I poured myself a cup of tea and thought about what else I could create using this design.

and my new favorite thing to create, cell phone cases.

Society6 is promoting my shop with Free shipping until October 14th, isn't that nice?  I call this next one "There's a pattern on my cup."

I hope you don't have a rainy day too.  But if you do, pour yourself a cup of tea, fluff a pillow behind your head...and get cozy.

I am wishing you Bluebirds in the Moonlight and rainy day inspiration.

We are opposites today, but you are dispensing such good advice that I'm going to take you up on it and give myself over to crocheting the afternoon away. I love the color combinations today...the yellows and pinks are heavenly.

I love it when you have a chance to create Karen. It is always inspiring to visit you.

Today is sunny here. We have had rain the last few days though.

I love your phone cases but I don't have an i-phone, just an android. Do they sell cases that would fit those?

Talk about creative muse....YOU ARE THE QUEEN! You are always pumping out the most inventive ways to showcase your vision. I have so many things to navigate through these days.....future possible shows, ways to promote, let alone design ideas and IMPROVE THINGS. I am still in a confused state about what I am doing and which way to go, but I do know that I need to focus on story telling and art, but which way?
You know how I love the script. Any way you present it is so beautiful and I know you are successful.

THANK YOU for visiting me and for your support. Your opinion means a lot to me! Anita
