Xmas Chicken

I've never been too skilled in wrapping gifts.  Either a person can tell immediately what it is, or they tilt their heads with a confused look and ask, "It's a gift?"

If you play your cards right, this image could be yours -on a card even!  A whole set of them, with envelopes!

Yeah. I have no idea.

I don't know how you're supposed to give this to someone without offending them.  Maybe I should have the image made into a fridge magnet instead?

Inside the fishbowl

You think things are so peaceful and tranquil in there, but really it's complicated.

Shameless self promotion continues.  Go to the Etsy shop and buy some. 
If it's any comfort to you I have learned my lesson and will never again try and make something seasonal.  I feel like my little cards are going to spoil like milk after the 25th.

You didn't know you needed this till now

I made Christmas cards.  Lots of them. 
I was like the little red hen, I thought of the picture, I sketched the picture, I drew the picture, I painted the picture, I glued a little bit of origami paper in the shape of a pile of poo to the picture, I wrote the snarky quote in the picture, and I had the picture printed on nice card stock to make with the Christmas happy.
Now who's going to buy my picture?
Seriously.  Limited offer.  Clocks ticking, get with the clicking.  Go to the Etsy site and order yours.  Love me.

Moving in many directions simultaneously sounds busy and productive but it probably means I'm just moving in circles.  November was a whirlwind of activities but I'm not sure what they all added up to. 

The writing goals, well I didn't meet my goal word count wise, but I did manage to reshuffle things and re-invision the story better I think in my lastest revision.

Painting wise, I went on a bit of a bender while I still had some heat out there in the studio and I've made small 5x5 paintings from cut up pieces of scrap boards that a kind neighbor gave me.
I also worked out a set of 12 illustrations with pencil, pen and ink and watercolor.  I've had these printed up in to cards, with the hope of selling them.

On the crazy Alice front, I've started taking meds for ADD.  I don't know.  I think I have an easier time focusing, I can handle distractions a little better now.  It's unfortunately not the magic pill I had hoped for, but that's a little silly to hope for anyway.
