Manic Weekend:Sketches, Awards, Gifts, Cleaning & Finally Drinking!

Greetings & Salutations!
It's been one crazy weekend here at the Studio. It was so beautiful as I was held up in the Studio listening to the much needed rain drops hitting the windows as I dash around gathering bits and bops of all kinds of stuff. I swear this Fall I'm having a major clear-out and getting this Studio organized.  But for now, it's just going to have to do. So many things in the kettle, orders to be filled, telephone calls to make, groups to manage, artists friends to visit, renewing my passport, knitting, sewing, painting, ripping, tearing, sculpting, taking photos, paperwork, cleaning, running, laundry, and DRINKING...ALL OF THIS BETWEEN LAYERS OF PAINT!
It was a beautiful weekend! LOL
On Saturday, I received my precious handmade ornament from the ever so talented Marie Patterson. Marie is a Spooky Time Jingles Artist, and I happened to snag "Penny Pumpkin" one of her new Spun Cotton Ornaments. OMG...She is absolutely beautiful. Full of life, color and the detail is absolutely wonderful. Marie is so talented and I'm so glad I was able to snag Penny from her.  I can't wait to see next months listings over at STJ. I'm so a collector of these amazing spun cotton ornaments. Thanks again Marie for everything.
She is living with me in my Studio on my Ornie Tree.
I also received Donna's giveaway that I won. I'm still in shock that I actually won. I never win anything. I keep playing that damn lottery, but haven't hit it yet! Well, winning Donna's Giveaway is way better than hitting any lottery...her artwork is just amazing.  Check out her work over at So Dark So Cute She has amazing works over there and her Blog Shop.

THANK YOU AGAIN DONNA! They are with me in my Studio! LOL
I worked on some Sketches over the weekend.  I actually draw in my Sketchbook every night before I head to bed. I'm still learning and growing with each pencil mark.  It's a process, but I am really enjoying the feel of paper and pencil.  Something I will do until the day I die (which hopefully won't be any time soon)! LOL I still have much to learn and do!

Earlier today I received an Email from Donna, So Dark So Cute Awarding me with:
 "Strange men or Strange Woman in Pinstripe Suits"
Yes, I'm Strange, and I love creating weird whimsy, creepy strange artwork.  I tend to create more in this genre during the Fall, but then again...I'm an Artist, so therefore I am STRANGE All of the TIME...so TiS THE SEASON TO BE STRANGE! I wouldn't have it any other way!
The award originated with Cate Gardner who is celebrating the pre-release of her book, "Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits."
To accept the award, however, you have to do some "strange" things--like, go forth and celebrate the strangeness of friends (and strangers, who are always allowed) by nominating seven blogs run by strange folks.

Here's my list of my favorite strange bloggers:
Colleen- LoopyBoopy
Nicole- Mealy Monster
Sheri - Ostrich Girl
Jade - New Age Dolls
Haley Monster -Without you, I'm just plastic
Moriah Betterly - MLB Studio 
I hope everyone has a wonderful and creative Week!
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for the opening of:
Until Next Time
P.S. I did manage to get a few Martini's In!
