October Art Worktable

October Art Worktable

oct-wipHappy Halloween Week!
That photo shows what my work table in the Kukui Lagoon studio looked like yesterday! When I’m on a roll, I ROLL! I’m happily up to my elbows in bowls, so I’m painting, painting, painting! New pieces will be listed in my etsy shop late tomorrow, including some tiny diorama boxes that I just finished (soooo magical!), the aged faux book boxes, and other goodies.

How will you be spending YOUR Halloween? Do you dress up for the trick-or-treaters? Do you shut the lights off and eat the candy yourself? How many pumpkins did you carve? Do you go all-out with decorating inside and out, or do you just put up a few things indoors?

Zombie Sellout

Zombie Sellout

vctdecvctdec.open I’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 chock full of beautiful vintage campers, and we love it. 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). Woot! If you love vintage trailers, you NEED to subscribe (I’m not getting paid to say that), or at least find VCT on Facebook to see how awesome these folks are! *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!

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!

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. I shot everything shroomfrom 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 numbered, and includes the Legend of the Christmas Spider, and how they are connected to tinsel!
(EDIT: Our Christmas Spiders are 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 BUNCH of teensy zombies, washed them, primed them, painted them (oh, so realistic), and made little scenes into zombie ornaments (see below). I had 16 of them in my etsy, and someone must have shared them in a blog or something, 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! 😀

I better get back to packaging shipments. Who knows? Maybe one of these zombie ornaments is shambling to YOUR house!
