Tons of New Made to Match Gymbo Templates---

I got really busy this past few days. I am all caught up with custom orders and instead of painting I sat my tush at the computer and created a swarm of graphics--fun fun fun :)

Here is just a sample of some that I did: Click on each to be brought to the auctions:

And a few that are not M2MGymbo....just some pretties---

All of my graphics are from my own hand painted or mouse drawn artwork. This includes all backgrounds and scrolls. There are only a select few people on ebay who sell their own graphic work and when sellers are using graphics that they swiped from stock sites or scrap book sites then it is considered stealing when they in turn sell it in template format to the public. As an artist it really saddens me that this happens. Thanks for letting me vent so to speak LOL

Hugs everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday!]

GEEGADS I have been tagged....

A few months ago I was tagged by Christine to post 8 things people didn't really know about me. Well I have been tagged again to list another 8 by LUCY. This will be super hard because I am an open it goes.

The Rules:
“Each person links to the person who tagged them. Then each person posts the rules before their list, then they list 8 things about themselves. At the end of the post, that person tags and links to 8 other people and then visits those peoples’ sites and comments letting them know that they have been tagged, and to come read the post, so they know what they have to do.”

1. I am a die Hard Matt Dillon wanna be forever in my heart, love you till I die, fan. I am inlove!!! Shh don't tell hubby (yeah right he knows). When I was about 23 I bumped into him at a grocery store in Manhattan and followed him back to some high rise around the corner from where I lived. Too bad the doorman refused to let me in, or I would be telling you a different scenario! LOL I loved him from the moment I saw him as Dallas WInston in the movie The Outsiders. I think I have seen every movie and interview he has ever made. Sigh :)

2. I have pink eye right now- again for the third time in one month! What am I doing wrong????

3. I went to the University of Maryland, College Park, and was in a sorority. If you knew me I was soooo not the sorority type ....But I rushed and got my first choice just so I could meet hot guys. How pathetic?

4. My kids are 16 months apart. For selfish reasons I don;t recommend it, but for my kids it was the best thing I could have ever done!

5. I opened up an ebay account on Dec. 31st, 2003 (even though my ebay account says 2005) around 11pm looking for a double stoller. I was 4 months preggo and on bed rest so NYEve went out the door! My id at the time was LeUniqueBoutique

6. When I started selling my art on ebay I need a new name and came up with this:
wendys world of art- I had wendysworldoFART for a month till Ebay let me change it to what it is now.

7. I don;t eat breakfast. Unless you count a can of Diet Dr. Pepper.

8. I hate cooking. Despise it. I do cook for my family, but it is torture for me. I'd rather eat out or get take out.

That's it. I have to think of 5 people to tag now.
Eva, Laurie, Helena, Kim, and Marlou...

Largest canvas I have done to date....J

Just finished another custom off my website from a customer. This one was 3ft by 4 ft!!! At first I was scared...I usually paint on my kitchen counter or table. So for this one I painted on my brand new kitchen tile! I love the Poodles In Paris theme...

Wendyswoldart visits LONDON...

I was invited to join 7th Ave in their 5 day Launch around the world and since I didn't have time to do 5 different paintings, I decided to do a London themed paintind (dedicated to my husband, who is desperate to move back to London---not happening :)

Regardless- my husband gave his seal of approval to this one (wink)

Anyway here is the Brit inspired Painting....


Classic General Hospital....

The accident that turned goodie goodie Jason Quartermaine into badboy Jason Morgan-

And I found funny!

Brings back so many memories...wish I could find the download for the Kevin O'Conner, Terry Brock, Lucy Coe (librarian days) triangle...that was by far my favorite story line of GH ever.

Love it.....

Haute from the Oven...

WisteriaLane is doing a "Haute from the Oven" launch. I made two is a three layer cake, and the other one is a personalized painting perfect for any little girl's play room with a kitchen set.

The Hills.....How I got hooked on this show I have no idea. I somehow found it through youtube on July 4th morning. I went on the mtv site and started watching Laguna Beach all the series, and now I finished Season 2 of the Hills. Great show. Am I the only thirty something who watches this show????tee hee

Why I love my Husband?

Besides the fact that I find him totally irresistible, with his cutie pie dimple, and sexy British accent, he is such a good man. Ok, taking care of the kids while I have mommy time is just not his up after himself is just not his thing, and of course, sharing his emotions is just not his thing....but

My husband told me that he watched me sleep this morning for an hour, and he said he fell inlove with me all over again. I had no idea he did this, but when I woke up this morning there was a card with breakfast waiting for me on my end table.

Maybe to you this is something your DH does everyday, but mine does not. He does other things for me like laundry, works hard for a living, and goes food shopping for me after work. But without him knowing this (I keep this to myself), I was sad yesterday because my birthday is coming up and I am shocked that I will be 37! I don;t understand how this is possible, as I think of myself in my twenties. I was feeling ugly, fat and annoyed with my self. So the fact that my husband left me a card this morning, just put things in a better perspective.

Just wanted to share this little personal aspect of my life.

New projects....

This pair of handpainted and embellished jeans are for tomorrow's Kaleidoscope Funk Launch....

I started making these for gifts for friends who had babies over the past few months, and then I had a local customer who came by yesterday to pick up her paintings and saw this one I did for my daughter. She ended up ordering one from me (I never priced them and had to think of something quick). I do the basic letters, but this is more elaborate and I have to nail in the letter to the wood board. I may start selling these on my website as a single letter....

We had a blast today at the Brookfield Zoo (somewhere in Illinois- who knows--LOL) and it was such a perfect perfect day. Not too hot, not too cold- just perfect.
