Itty Bitty Teeny Tiny Bits of Joy

Happy Tuesday, pals!  Uhhhh......has anyone seen my summer?  I have no idea where it went.  It's the end of July already?  Eeeeeep.  Well, we are all hanging in there at the Patrick house so far.  I've been fighting some kind of allergy/sneezy/stuffy nose thing.  I'm going to finally take the advice of the hubby and see the doctor about some possible allergy tests or what not.  SIGH.  Annoying.  I know, I could be worse.  I'll quit whining.  Things that are making me happy right now.....these teeny tiny, itty bitty floral paintings!  I got nine of them done last week, and they make me squeal with delight!!  They were SO much fun to do!!!  

It's a fun challenge to take what you love doing and miniaturize (is that a word?)  I've listed them in my Etsy shop...I think there are a few left, if you want to take a peek, click HERE.  A BIG THANKS to all of you who are giving artists your business in unconventional ways this summer.  With the shows all being cancelled, it's been a strange new way to hustle, for sure.  So, thanks.

 Other things bringing me joy......
1) diminished humidity, so I can sit on the patio and write this note to you, while hanging out with my silly dogs.
2) coffee
3) my bright yellow nails.  Whoa!  They almost blind ya, but they are a blast!  Ha!
What little things are bringing you joy these days?

I'll pop in again soon and show you a project I'm hoping to finish up for my Mama this week!
Stay tuned!!!!
