Nutcracker themed artcards, ACEOs

And the trek through 30 days and 30 ACEOs marches on with my version of The Nutcracker and Clara. This project has me really wanting to watch The Nutcracker again. I want to take the girls to see it for Christmas but now I’m getting impatient. There must be something about making Christmas themed art that makes you want to celebrate Christmas early-this is never the case for me! I like my holidays to be celebrated when they are supposed to be celebrated and never before-the store decorations that go up during Halloween drive me crazy!

SugarPlum Fairy ACEO

Day two of the 30 ACEO in 30 day challenge.

If you can’t tell that I really like challenges than let me just say that I do,I really like challenges. It’s not really incentive to do something that makes them interesting to me it’s seeing what others do with the same prompt. I mentioned that this particular challenge is to make 30 holiday themed ACEOs in 30 days and all of the artists participating are making very cool cards for the challenge. Penny Stewart has decided to do a Nutcracker theme,not The Nutcracker just Nutcrackers in general. Gaylene Allen has decided to go with a candy theme and Joy Redington of Spreading Joy through Art  has chosen not to go with a theme besides the Christmas one. You can see all of the cards for this challenge here.

Update on Fairy painting, art for sale

I’ve been holding off on painting until I get things a little more organized around here but…I finally just gave in a worked on a few things today.

The thing is I was feeling miserable because I wanted to paint and I wasn’t getting much done. Better to paint and then work on messes I think!
