Mermaids and B-day

Just some mermaids. I used to draw them a lot but it seems they're not popular anymore. :)
Random:
  • It snowed but it's gone now
  • baby had his 1 year check up and all is well
  • we're having a professional birthday photo shoot today
  • and we're having 2 birthday parties this weekend
  • here he is on his b-day on Tuesday

Cartoon round robins

MACE started this set with Lucy, Linnda4atc added pumpkins and the bird, I finished it with Snoopy and background. This is actually an old Round Robin from last year's Thanksgiving period. :)
Linda4atc started this Round Robin set with Fred Flintstone, Tandy added Dino and I finished it with the house in the background.

Randomness:
  • baby slept until 7 a.m. for about 3 days
  • but today I'm writing this at 6 a.m. because he decided he had enough sleep
  • I forgot to schedule a post for today anyway so he did me a favor :)
  • It's baby's first birthday on Tuesday. :) Can't believe it's been a year.
  • I'm trying to schedule a photo-shoot for him on Friday next week. Hope the slot is open.
  • I've been spending way too much money this month. Internet shopping is a curse.
  • And there's that thing again. What should we buy the baby for his birthday? I don't know, he has everything. 
  • I should probably stop shopping and give others a chance as well. :)

Boxtroll - Shoe

Some requests I get for custom trades are just weird. But I love doing them as it pushes me out of the box. Apparently there is such a thing as a boxtroll and this one is named Shoe.
 Random stuff:
  • Baby likes books though he doesn't like it when I read to him. :) 
  • He got his first bump on the head but I put butter on it as I read on the internet and it never developed beyond a dot of redness. I was impressed as I didn't believe it would really work. And he hit his head really hard on the edge of mom's sofa, so much so there was a hole for a minute until the swelling started. No blood though.
  • Grandpa heard him cry and right after ordered to get rid of the sofa and buy a new, more baby friendly one. We bought it on Monday but have to pick it up today.

Portraits

Some ATCs I've done a while back. Not my usual style but I like them. It's like they've mature a bit. :)

Random stuff:
  • I got a new photo camera for New Years. I broke mine a long time ago and I didn't want to buy a new one so I borrowed my mom's which I dropped on the floor recently. It's still working but has glitches occasionally. 
  • Do your loved ones ask you what you want for a present? Mine do that constantly and it's somewhat annoying because I usually get what I want when I want it, so I have no idea what to tell them when they ask me for present ideas. And it seems kind of lazy on their part. 
  • Luckily for them, this year my camera broke so of course I had to find a new one. That's the other thing. I have to find a present myself, go get it and they pay for it. Which doesn't really feel like I'm getting a present since I'm doing all the work.
  • So, I found the camera I like in the price range I was comfortable with and I ordered it on-line. The baby woke up, I fed him and we went grocery shopping with my mom. I go to a shop I don't usually go to but somehow I was there that day. I glance at the cameras they have and I find a newer model of the same camera I ordered an hour ago and for less money. I was so upset with myself. Newer model meant 12x zoom instead of 8x. I wanted to reserve the camera so I could go home and cancel my order, if it was possible and then get back to buy this one. But I couldn't reserve it because it was the last one they had. Ok, to cut the suspense I figured, if it was meant to be, things were going to work out and they did. I canceled the order, got my money back and went to buy the newer model that was still waiting for me. I was happy. :)
Here's my baby boy after I cut his hair for the first time. Only a little lock on his forehead because it was getting in his eyes. From birth he had this mohawk going on and beneath it the hair was shorter anyway, so I didn't have to cut off a lot.

Victorian ladies


For this Round Robin  Linda4atc made the Victorian ladies, mcgillisj added the horse in the above set and I finished it with the background. I added some steampunk as I thought the sky was too bare.
In this one I added the dog and Tandy finished it with the background.
We have snow and baby boy is enjoying himself. :)
