Tim Burton Characters

I skipped last week's post because it was a hard week for me emotionally. I felt alone and overwhelmed. I don't know where my life is heading. I don't know what I'm doing. But don't worry, I had a good cry and I'm taking it one day at a time.

P.S. I opened a SHOP here on my blog. I'm selling some of my "big hair ladies" paintings. Go and check them out! :)

Elephants


Last week, I held on to doorframe (on the side where the hinges are) while putting on my shoes and the kid decided to close the door with my fingers in them. I can’t remember the last time I hurt my fingers in this way. It was so painful I felt sick.

My middle finger and ring finger are injured the most, pinky hurts but doesn’t have any visible injuries. I just hope my fingernails don’t fall off. I hear that can happen but I’ve never experienced it myself even though my fingers got caught in doors many times when I was a kid.

A couple of days later I stubbed my little toe while chasing my kid around the kitchen. These injuries remind me of my childhood and it feels weird that they're happening to me now.

Easter chicks and bunnies RR

Since it's Easter soon, I thought this bunny and chick round robin set of cards were appropriate for the occasion. Round robin cards are a set of three cards that three different artists work on and then each keeps a card when it's finished.

BexMadeMe started the set with the left bunny, IamWhatonearth added the right chick and I finished with the right bunny and left chick.

This brings me to a dream I had back in January. It stuck with me for two reasons. Somewhere along the line there was a train I was riding and I remember it because I have trains a lot in my dreams lately. There are different occasions but I'm always riding a train.

The other thing was three eggs that hatched a bunny. Not a chick, a bunny. Bunnies were already grown, not quite adults but already furry and ready to be on their own.

The third egg was a bit dented and while I was holding it in my hand, it broke and out came a furry bunny. But this one was not as big as the other two. You could tell, he was premature but nonetheless he wasn't in any danger of dying.

According to dream interpretation it symbolizes new beginnings and good luck.

Ladies

Randomness:
  • My pooch had an operation last week. I talked about why HERE. Yesterday I took her to remove stitches but half of the cut wasn't healed properly, so she still has half of stitches left until it heals. The cut is 18 cm (7") long.
  • We had another bout of snow last Sunday. It's getting a bit annoying now. There's always heavier snowfall where I live and the last one hasn't even melted yet and here we are with yet another 5 inches. 
  • It's windy now. Not the nice spring breeze but full on wind.
  • Cars are fixed ... for now. We had to take both of our cars to the shop in the past 7 days but there was stuff they couldn't fix, so we're making do. 
  • The little pooch got her long awaited haircut yesterday. It's only when she gets her fur buzzed off it's when I can see how fat she's gotten. She's not the only one. All our dogs are fat because my mom shows them love by giving them abundance of unnecessary treats.
  • I'm still dealing with paperwork. It's annoying but ... life goes on.

Handprint flower

Last week was International Women's day. Usually I gift my mom flowers but I didn't have time to buy any, so the kid and I made a greeting card for her. Hand prints and fingerprints are useful at this age. It's personal and something you want to keep as a memory. He helped with the brush strokes as well.
This one though is a garden fairy ATC. I thought I'd showcase them together since it's about flowers.
