On Tuesday, I forced myself to take a critical look at my wardrobe… and weed out anything in my closet that I haven’t worn in the last twelve months. Barring …
Sometimes life throws an unexpected gut-wrenching twist into your predictable routine, and like the first ice-cold blast of water shooting from the shower faucet – in that instant when your …
2011 will be an exciting time spent experimenting with wood and cloth. Joe has been talking for months about purchasing a sewing machine for me – as a BIRTHDAY present, no less! – which means I’ll be cursing and stitching my fingers to assorted fabrics in an effort to create some stuffed animals for my shop. ;)
Following artist Jessica Doyle on Facebook, Twitter, Etsy, Wordpress, Buzz, and Flickr… eh, does that sound stalkerish? …over the last year and a half has been really meaningful for me, because she is full of insight and wisdom. And she doesn’t mind sharing it with us.
Whenever I pick up a scrap of paper, or study the faces in a photograph, my life becomes intertwined with theirs… perhaps in a minor insignificant way, perhaps in a more substantial way. If I reach out with my energy, I might as well be touching their hand.
Lydia once asked why the Easter bunny didn’t visit our house, after discovering Mom’s stash of candy for last minute basket stuffing… I informed her that Peter

Some of you might be interested in this quick video, of me painting the pearl necklace on my latest portrait, "Miss Peony" Fairy Cat.
"Miss Peony" ©TaraFly, 2016. An acrylic painting on canvas panel, measuring 5"x7".
The sixth portrait in my Flower Fairy Cats series, featuring cats in Victorian dress wearing giant flowers instead of hats. :)
Each Flower Fairy also corresponds to a birth-month flower. Peonies are an alternative flower choice for November, which typically is represented by Chrysanthemums.
