Two FREE June 2011 desktop calendars to choose from...

I thought my little hummingbird and parachuting mice characters were so much fun that they'd both make great June 2011 desktop calendars. So now you have two to choose from...I might just have to switch back and forth every other week, I can't pick a favorite?!! Just click on the links below each image to choose from 2 different screen resolutions of each desktop calendar, then right click the image and click on " Save to desktop". Enjoy!! :)

Hummingbird...and friends

Here another few quick snaps of this illustration as I'm working on it. The hummingbird is giving a ride to a furry mouse friend and his little buddy is parachuting in above with a napkin. Lately I have had a thing for Echinacea flowers...I've used them in my last 2 plasticine illustrations- they are so, so pretty :)
Can't wait to share more...check back soon. ;)

Just a quick little post to share a few snaps of what I've been up to...
Here is a quick snapshot of the little hummingbird character I am working on that will be part of my next plasticine illustration. As you can see from the quick sketch above he will be giving a little mouse friend a ride, and will accompany a few other skydiving, and daredevilish little mice.  Bye for now...:)

Butterflies and flowers...

Here is a close-up of one of the illustrations I am currently working on. I don't know how the weather has been where you live, but here in Southern Ontario it has been very, very VERY wet! Enough rain already, and let's bring on the sunshine! The only good thing about the wet weather we've had is that we now have the lushest, greenest grass and an abundance of tree blossoms. So it is rather pretty outside even in this gloomy, damp weather.:)
I thought it would be fitting to share my butterflies and Echinacea blooms today now that the sun is finally  making an appearance- yippeee!
We are off to the cottage this long weekend. It will be the first trip for us this season. Time to crack out my lists and start packing! I hope everyone has a great weekend too!

Must be Spring...

May always brings with it a plethera of activity...this year my second son has his first communion, we have 3x3 hockey for the oldest 2 boys starting up and then soccer season begins for all four of my kiddos. Geesh, it gets tricky to fit it all on my calender-thank goodness for coloured markers! But once they are all tuckered out with some good old fashioned exercise and off to sleep, I get to enjoy a cup of tea and get to work on some plasticine illustrations with the tunes playing on my ipod. Here's a little sneek peak at what I've been working on lately:

They are both still a work-in-progress, so I promise to share the full illustrations once they're completed. Sometimes it's nice to have a few projects on the go at once for variety. I hope everyone has a great Mother's Day!! I hope I get to sleep in! ;)
