Zombie Sellout

Zombie Sellout

We’re in Vintage Camper Trailers Mag!

vctdecvctdec.openI’m jumping right in with the most exciting news first! While we were rebuilding our vintage camper – and taking that long break while JohnnyV was in the hospital and recuperating – Vintage Camper Trailers magazine was an inspiration to us. It’s full of beautiful vintage campers, and their owner’s stories. I emailed Paul (the owner/editor of the mag), to share our story, and he was interested in sharing it with his readers, so….drumroll, please…The Aquatomic Lounge is featured in Issue 22 (Nov/Dec 2015). *Odd side note…John and I have this “thing” with the number 14 appearing all over in our lives. Guess what page the article starts on? 14!! Too cool!

My Mother’s Garden Adult Coloring Book is Now Available!

bookpromoEXInspired by photos that I took in mom’s garden when we visited Wisconsin this past summer, I gathered other photos I’d saved of her garden over the years, sketched some of them out, simplified them, added borders, put it all together, and published it (HA! If it were only that quick and simple), so my first coloring book is now available in my etsy shop (link opens the coloring book page in a new window)! Did you know that coloring gives you the same benefits that meditation does? Cool stuff!

Road Trip

We took an uber-brief trip to Senoia, Georgia in November, and I spent a little bit of time in the woods taking photos – which I STILL have to edit – but I will share some here in my next post. shroomI shot everything from mushrooms-as-big-as-your-head, to colorful mushrooms, to teensy mushrooms, to yes, another visit to TWD store and seeing where they were currently shooting the show in Senoia. It’s so cool to take pics of the area and then later see the same areas in the show!

While we were visiting Senoia, my sis-in-law and I “slumber partied” listening to Il Volo and Michael Buble’ while drinking a “few” glasses of vino, laughing, and me crafting up some gorgeous beaded Christmas Spiders. Each is named and includes the Legend of the Christmas Spider (and how their webs became tinsel)! (EDIT: SOLD OUT)

More shop news:
– We recently shipped our 100th package from our etsy store! THANK YOU, loyal supporters!! And even crazier? It’s been such a busy season already, we are almost to our 150th etsy sale!

dec2015Ever since Thanksgiving, I’ve been busy packaging bowls, spiders, zombies (almost sold OUT in ONE afternoon), and other goodies until late into the night. I am so tickled that you enjoy my kooky art, and it makes me happy to know that my “children” are traveling all over the country! Orders in the last 2 days are going to Canada (via a pit stop in NY), AL, GA, FL, TX, CA, OH, MI…and there may be a couple I’ve missed!

zombiesOh, WAIT, I didn’t tell you about the zombies!! I got a horde of teensy zombies, washed them, primed them, painted them, and made diorama zombie ornaments (below). I had 16 of them in my etsy shop, and someone must have shared them in a blog, because BAM, in one afternoon, I’m suddenly left with only three TWO in the shop! It looks like more zombie painting is in my future…

…because nothing says “Happy Holidays” like Zombie Balls! Ho Ho Ho!
