No Woogie Wednesday
Woogie Wednesday will not take place this week due to mommy going to the "popsicle" (hospital) and having her gall bladder removed. She has lots of boo-boos now and I have to be a really good girl. Check back next week when she feels better.


The Woog

Bertha-Mae part 2
Here's the completed Woogie Wednesday piece we started on yesterday. The Woog picked out the pieces for the hair and did some painting. During the process of painting and gluing she kept telling me "good job" and "I'm proud of you." Pretty funny.

Here's the final piece. It might be my favorite junk a doodles piece so far. I'll show my postcard when I have it all laid out.

It's Wednesday so that means it's time for Woogie Wednesday. I'm doing it a little different this time and it will probably be a 2-parter. I'm doing a separate mailer this month for my junk a doodle style, so I'm enlisting the help of the Woog with this one. At the moment she is asleep by her bedroom door covered completely in her blanket and snoring, but I'm sure when she get's up she'll be excited to start digging for junk...or watching Dora.

I pulled an older sketch from my sketchbook to use for my promo. This was actually going to be Illustration Friday's theme "wired" some time back. I've modified it a bit and I've got an old 15" x 21" yard sale cutting board just calling my name.

Hopefully we'll have a final piece or at least a work in progress tomorrow to show. For now, here's the sketch. Oh, and her name is Bertha Mae (of Bertha Mae's hair barn of course!).

Oh and thanks to Jannie's post, I'm now addicted to Papermate's Sharpwriters! I will never sharpen a pencil again :)

Hooked on Phonics worked for me!

Look! Stuffed animals reading my book! Who'd a thought it? I did several things for Hooked On Phonics a while back and it's now out and about.

Isn't it weird that phonics is spelled with a "ph" instead of an "f" seeing that phonics is all about phonetically spelling/reading? See, there it is again!

This is from my new promo mailer and I thought it would be appropriate for this week's illustration Friday. I'd say the girl freaking out about her "A-" is probably a bit geeky.

I never thought of myself as a geek until I told my husband the other day that I own 55 domain names. He said that's probably not something I should brag about. Nearly all of them redirect to my website so it's not like I'm hording them or plan on reselling them. Oh well, I now own 57. GEEK!!

Happy 4th!

It's Wednesday so that means it's time for Woogie Wednesday. Since it's Independence Day today we did more of a collage with junk rather than the things we normally do and instead of painting the Woog had the job of "sqiiiiiisshhhhh-ing" the glue and gluing on the fireworks (aka buttons). I decided to stick it in a frame and it's new home is in the kitchen. Happy 4th!
