☆¸.•*''*•.¸☆Happy Fourth!!☆¸.•*''*•.¸☆

Independence Day Greetings from the now comfortably cool studio! (And John says "God Save the Queen", hehe)....

I'll tell you, even this ancient monster of an air conditioner (yes, I know I should invest in something more energy efficient, but such is the budget) makes ALL the difference in the world when it comes to productivity. It's amazing how much you can accomplish when you're not melting. :)

Not to be a tease, but I have to share this week's project, which is already sold; a table inspired by the Celtic goddess Eostre, who legend has it could shape shift into a hare...

If you look closely, you'll see the shape of a hare in the moon's shadows. Other cultures have hare moon legends too, and I've been doing a bit of reading/research on these tales, along with re-reading some passages "Watership Down", an all time favorite. Soooooo, this isn't likely to be the last hare moon piece. Stay tuned.

I'll be spending today working on a card for the upcoming oracle deck, and the rest of the week on commissions, eBay offerings and the July 10th PFATT Marketplace update. I'd like to say we're doing something fun and fabulous for the Fourth, but it will be a quiet, working and housecleaning weekend here, with crockpot cooking, as the grill is broken. (MUST get a new one soon!)

In other news, the magic random number generator chose Christina Silverio of Hoyden Designs as the winner of the little trinket box - congrats, Christine!!

Look for another giveaway here very soon, as well as July giveaways on the EHAG Emporium. Speaking of which, have you checked out this month's offerings?!! I'm afraid I didn't have time to participate, but WOW - some truly amazing Halloween art there, and a few pieces still available. ;)

That's about it for today. I'll be back very soon with new work, and hopefully a sneak peek at works in progress for the upcoming Ghoultide Gathering (I can't believe it's less than three months away!)

Wishing everyone here in the US a safe celebration!
