Finally a spark of inspiration...

Whew! I finally made time to find some inspiration for a new piece of art. I love how well everything came together on this one. I am adding it to etsy now. I am sitting in the kitchen, here at the trusty computer, giving Jaydon all the time in the world to wrap my presents. He tends to get creative with the wrapping. He never ceases to amaze me. Since he started wrapping presents; I have done my dishes, finished "the power of love," listed it, and am now taking the oppurtunity to update my blog. :) I love my sweet hubby, and every little thing he does for me. The first present he brought in had a little christmas tree made out of paper, and a square present (also made from wrapping paper) underneath the tree. I am most definitly going to have to take a picture of it in better lighting.

I hope everyone is having a stress free holiday season! This year will be a little different for us, instead of going over to mom and dads on Christmas morning, we are having the family all over here. It should be somewhat cozy with all 11 of us in our little 900 sq. ft. home. :)

Looking ahead to 2008:

I *think* I am going to take a huge plunge in January, and transfer SparksFly to a new storefront space on etsy. Fresh with a new name and new look. Ever since I introduced my artwork, and quit designing packaging I have thought about starting fresh. Of course there are definitly disadvantages to doing so, and that is why I have not already done it. BUT, I really do think it would be best for me in the long run. I will certainly keep you all posted, and I welcome comments/suggestions. The new name is still in the works... I have to find the perfect fit/logo.

Well, I must make use of my kitchen time. Trinity is telling me she is starving. A new word she picked up from me... ugh. Poor child, there is just something pitiful about 3 year old telling you she is starving when her last meal/snack was only an hour ago. :) I think tonight it is frozen pizza, with snacks curled up by the fire later in the evening.

My Best Holiday wishes to all!
