Also, we have a new computer *Yay!!* and I have been trying to work that out (which is tricky since the other one was NINE YEARS OLD and had archaic programmes. )
Also, I am busily trying to organise myself for the launch of my Whimsical Works etsy shop on Saturday. My next post will be the official ad for the launch. You can use the ad on your own blogs and websites to help me promote the shop. But, keep in mind, it actually takes awhile to make the card sets, so I can only sell what I have, and right now there are only 4 complete sets of cards. As I want to create card sets for other classic stories there will ONLY be 4 sets of cards for Alice in Wonderland, so, grab one quick if you want one!
If all goes well, I might be able to introduce new items to the shop every Saturday.
Ha! We'll see how that pans out!

If you could help me out a little, I would love for my followers, regular readers and occasional readers, to promote the launch of Whimsical Works on their blog closer to the date. I'll post a photo that you can use on your blog, and if you could just do a little blurb for me that would be great! And leave a comment on my blog when you can - I get so excited when people leave comments and I always look at people's blogs when they leave a comment. Also, adding me to your blog roll would be awesome! I always look at other people's blog rolls to find new blogs.
Anyway, enough of the shameless plugs... the next character in my Wizard of Oz series is the Lion,
Coincidentally, my Dad is showing The Wizard of Oz at the Cygnet Cinema in a few weeks. If you are in Perth and live near Como you could always pop in to see the movie. You might even meet my Dad!

These ones represent Dorothy.
Jack and I watched the Wizard of Oz DVD the other day and it was so wonderful! It had been YEARS since I had seen it, and I had forgotten so much of it. Judy Garland is just the perfect Dorothy, and that witch...iconic!
Stay tuned for more...

card blanks and envelopes from Castle Cards...
and more things still to come. I've been making little labels for the card sets, and soon there will be finished boxes of cards!
Makes me smile (and make silly little shrill sounds of excitement!)

2. Dark frames with beautiful art - Just waiting to put up these frames with pictures from The Black Apple. About to get some new pictures from Georgia Parsons too. Can't wait!
This paper tole picture, that I LOVE, was made many years ago, by my Mum.
4. White walls and doors - slowly but surely...aaahhh.
I wonder if anyone else out there DARES to show their Nevers and Always of home decorating.
