Slacker alert!

Do YOU know where she is...Maisie asks?

She's right here Maisie May Rose Margaret O'Neill! Your mom has been a blog slacker but is trying to get back on the creative bus. The trip to Hawaii, working this week on the upcoming new website...blah blah blah...have taken the paintbrush out of her hand lately. Besides the fact that she has to take care of YOU, you energetic little vixen.

I DO have some exciting news to share with you! I am featured in the April/May 2009 print and online issue of San Diego Style Weddings Magazine. My good friend, Ruth Welter of Artful Creations was interviewed by Kathryn Bechen for an article called, "Your Blessed Nest, Finding and Creating a Comfortable, Beautiful and Harmonious Living Space for Two".

Kathryn interviewed Ruth for her expertise in home decor and because of the amazing artwork she creates; original paintings, vintage tins, jewelry and more. Ruth's work would obviously add beauty and that special touch to any new living space.

Graciously, Ruth also recommended my dog portrait commissions as another unique way for a newly married couple to start an art collection and to add something personal to their home decor. San Diego Style is a very lovely magazine and it's an honor to be included. A very big thank you goes out to Ruth!

Hope you're all enjoying a spunky spring day out there. Back soon!

Sometimes it's hard to get back in the swing of things after a vacation!
The pic of Maisie is so sweet!

That's wonderful, Linda...Congratulations! That Maise is such a heartbreaker. I would love to get my arms around her! She's so beautiful & I'm quite sure she's even sweeter!

Wow... how cool are you! I guess we'd better be grateful for what every blog time we get with you from now on.

With that awesome publicity, who know when you'll be able to get yourself out of the studio. Good thing you got your vacation in for this first part of the year! June weddings coming up, I can see those email requests coming in now. Congrats!!!

YAY! great article Linda, and such a nice recommendation she gave you. Now tell me, does Maisie's entire name get pronounced only when she is in trouble? ; )
hugs from me and the fatties in Texas...
