I used to keep a blogish page on my website but blogger.com makes it so much more functional and easy to keep a blog so I've moved what I had over here. So, the previous posts below are older than their post dates but I wanted them to have a presence here. Going forward all of my posts should be going, well, forward.

Released in the Spring of 2009 my nature pendents are a little under an inch in size, these handpainted and silkscreened pendents are a wearable work of art. Silhouettes and nature have been hot trends for the past several seasons and this year has seen this genre get even hotter. Stay cool with one of these pendents at $12 a piece.
Visit me on etsy to purchase, I'll be posting better photos of them very soon.
Happy made an appearance at Hodags on Parade where the Downtown Association unveiled 5 hodag sculptures painted by local artists, if you're in the Rhinelander area, keep your eyes open for these fun additions to the local landscape!

Waiting for our turn to go, we were number 86 in line.
Happy the Hodag and McKenzie who did a wonderful job handing out candy.
Happy the Hodag and Jerry Kuczmarski cruising the parade route.
And I can't forget to thank Susie Miller for putting up with the hot, hot delay!
This is a ad I ran in the Winter issue of Small Magazine, the most interesting, beautiful and well designed magazine for parents I've ever encountered. My ad didn't garner too much attention, the Hodag being so specific to the Northwoods of Wisconsin, but it was fun coming up with it!
I was approached by my grade school/junior high alma mater to donate some items to their auction and for permission for a few students to create and auction off a Happy the Hodag chair. They just sent me pictures and I think they did a great job!
Looking at these pictures brings me back to the old art room at St. Mary's. There was always loads of cool art stuff to experiment with and if I finished my projects early (and I almost always did), Mrs. Rondello would let me start a new project of my choice using anything on the shelves.
Now that I think about it, it's no wonder my office looks like it does. I've apparently been trying to recreate that art room my entire adult life! ;)
These images were taken at the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce book signing and reading for First Books For Kids recipients. Area children who received my donated books, Tales From The Trees, and A Monster Misunderstanding took part in the event.
