Announcing Her Royal Highness!

           The holding cell in the Land of Fantasy is getting crowded!

The newest member of the Disney Villain Jailhouse Rock Gang is her gloriousness... The Queen of Hearts!

I can only imagine how much of a hissy fit she'd throw confined in a small space with a bunch of other stubborn, snide, grouchy villains.  Endless hours of entertainment right there!

Feel free to hop over to My Shop to see the rest of the prisoners!

Up next ... Dr. Facilier
Here is a rough sketch of the early stages of his mugshot

He's got friends on the other side... of the BARS!

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

And Away We GO!

                     If you couldn't tell by the subtly of that doodle, we're going to Disneyland tomorrow!!!  So excited!  It's been a couple years since I've been to the happiest place on earth so this is definitely exciting!  Joe and I decided this trip will be a belated one year anniversary for us.  So as a reward of making through one year of marriage with each other we are going to stuff our faces with churros, fill our ears with Disney music till we're numb, and right the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to my heart's content!

Before I go I wanted to share a little piece I did for a friend of mine.  It was a very emotional little creation but it was worth every minute knowing how much it meant to her and her husband to have this image in her home.

Life Is The Bubbles!

             This past weekend friends of my husband and mine got married.  I usually try to make my gifts to people as unique and personal as possible.  So I decided instead of the typical slow cooker or blender, I would make her something with what she is obsessed with, Ariel.

Ever since she saw my other shadow box mermaid piece she's been talking about how awesome it would be if I could make one for her... Well her wish came true!

Don't worry!  We got a little something for the Groom too, he wouldn't be too thrilled about a Little Mermaid picture like his wife would.  Though it would be fantastic to see a 240lb buff man get excited about The Little Mermaid and bubbles.

Here's the other mermaid shadow box that inspired this little gift

 And now on to the new creation!

Just had to pop a frame on it (that is why the coral isn't flush with the edge of the background) and Ta-DA!  Here's to a lifetime of love, happiness, and ADVENTURE Donny and Jess!

Always remember... Life is the BUBBLES!
