I Wait For It The Whole Year Round
With only a few more days til Christmas, things have been so super hectic and crazy ~ but in a good way! I love seeing all the Christmas lights at night, all the toys, candy and decorations in the stores, assembling & wrapping gifts, making cupcakes and cookies, Holiday Parties and get togethers...there's no better time than this.
Went to the Long Beach Flea Market and I went nuts with all the Christmas Vintage piles! I came away with some pretty spectacularly brilliant Elves, no Santas but there sure were a whole lot! This is all fuel for my creativity...
I love that people put their effort into the seasons, last time it was Halloween, this time, Christmas...I love a theme something awful!
It was off to Miss Mindy and Rick O'Brien's Dr. Sketchy's Holiday Bonanza with Bob Self and his lovely band of models last night!
The Belle of the Ball, Miss Mindy is just so gosh-darn-lovely! The place was UN-BE-LIEV-ABLE...so warm & cozy inside, so crazy insanely fun and lit up outside! A full-size mushroom house?! Fire pits and ponds of leaves?! Trees and stones and cages with butterflies?! Models with feathers and stockings in trees?!
We scooped up Bob Dob with a quick visit to his studio before hopping on over to Mindy's...HOLEEE MOSES, what a place! I'll be back with my camera next time, it was so inspiring. Here he takes a break from sketching to eat one of my black and white cupcakes...
Daniel Peacock brought his wonderful talent and showed us how to do. A visit to his studio is next, believe it or not...it will happen.
Daniel and Bob draw in Mindy's exciting work place, where her very magic hands create such juicy ladies and Halaballoo.

So happy to have been included in their very warm world of O'Brien. The two of them make me so happy - they make EVERYONE so happy! Much much love to Bob Self and family, the Dr. Sketchy's ladies, all the people who show up in support of people's creativity and talents, and to the boys and girls I get to call my friends and family!!!
