Snow, Movies, Studio Time, New Website, and Breathing

LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW...I know a lot of us are getting hit with SNOW, and I'm so loving it! We took these pictures on December 5th...The First Snow of 2009! LOL

The forecast this weekend is SNOW, SNOW, SNOW, SNOW! WHOOOOOHOOOOOOO
Crow Abbey Designs by Michelle Schafer

I've been working on my new Website, getting tags, business cards, and all of the goodies ready to launch in 2010. I'm working on getting new items to offer through Crow Abbey Designs, so make sure you sign-up and follow me for updates!
I asked LuLu Kellogg from Coastal Sisters (and a DAG Member) to design some Certificate of Authenticity's for my designs under "Crow Abbey Designs by Michelle Schafer." LuLu did a fantastic job in capturing what I wanted. LuLu will design anything for you and send you the design so you can have them printed. I had mine printed over at They did a fantastic job and shipping was really fast!

Thank you so much LuLu for your help! I absolutely love them!!!
Make sure you stop by and get your orders in. LuLu also designs blog banners, etsy banners, and all kinds of other goodies. Any Artist that creates and sells their works, should have these for their customers!

The other day, I finally got my Diary for 2010 from the "DIARY PROJECT" that I participated in. Here is my page that will appear in the Daily Diary for 2010. Fantazya did a wonderful job getting these Diaries together!
You can order your Daily Diary for 2010 by going here: Make sure you check out the link to see all of the fabulous artists that were involved with this project.

Okay, many of you have been asking me about DAG "Dark Artists Guild." DAG has decided to move the Forum to DAG GrimCity. We will no longer be on NING. Our new Forum is under construction, and will be ready for new Members and Fans on January 1, 2010. MarZel, The Goblin, and Myself are very excited for 2010 and what we have planed for DAG GrimCity. Stay tuned for more details.
I'm looking forward to getting home from work...yes, I'm posting my blog from WORK (shhhhhh don't tell anyone)...and settling in to watch some Christmas DVDs in my big chair with my pencils and sketchbooks. Since we don't have TV, we load up on DVDs. I just got the newest Harry Potter (the 6th movie), and was a little disappointed. I guess that is what happens when a new Director takes over. Oh well, at least the book was good! LOL
As for my weekend...I will be working in the STUDIO, watching my workshop videos from the newest Suzi Blu Workshop on "ANGELS" and getting some Holiday Art Dolls Completed. I hope you all have a wonderful and creative weekend. Always make time to create art, even if it's for 5 min a will thank yourself!

Haha, as usual you are sooo busy! Congrats, congrats congrats on the website, I know it will be a hoot!

I love the diary and thanks for the heads up on DAG:::sigh:::one of these days I'll have to get all dark and funky up in here!

Humbug! There is NO snow in New York City, just frickin' cold and wind blowing! Everywhere else is snow and I figure, hey, if it's gonna be cold it might as well snow, right?? :)

Happy Holidays my Friend!

Hi Mishie!

You are so welcome my dear and I am glad they turned out so well. Thanks a bunch for the shout out :)

The snow looks so pretty on your farm. Ahhhhhh, looks like a wonderful place to sit and have hot chocolate and marshmallows (or an adult bevvie) and watch it snow!!

Hope you have a creative weekend :)

Michelle, your snow pictures are hauntingly beautiful! Our snow has already melted away. Can't wait to see your website - perhaps it will light a fire under me. Mine has been sitting dormant and empty for two years now. Happy holidays! Lisa
