Sleepy Sundays: Fever Pitch

There hasn’t been a piece this abstract in my folders for quite some time. Yes, I dive into the surreal quite often, but this one is different. I’m actually planning on saving this one for a client as a basis for future endeavors in the sci-fi genre.

What makes it so unique to my collections though is the inspiration. The other night I had a very strange, and wildly interesting dream. Observing my surroundings, it appeared I was in some other space and time completely. The entire experience was astounding really. I woke up in awe trying to analyze everything before life slapped me back into reality.

Maybe it’s the process of moving driving me mildly insane. Or just may-be…something else.

Have you stepped out of your comfort zone lately?

Have a dreamy Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Flight at Dusk

We will be relocating our operations here as far as artwork. The office will be moving and you may have noticed I am redesigning the website to match our new digs. We’re hoping you all find it cozy still once it’s all said and done.
This weekend I’ve designed a few more nature-inspired pieces to be added to the new gallery. This is the first of that set.

Is anything in your life moving on/moving out or taking “flight”?

Have a breezy Sunday!

Daydreams Diary: Moving On

We’re slowly packing our things again for yet another move. The future is somewhat uncertain but we’ve been planning out how the next few months should go. We’re all so ready to leave this place, including my son. While I sorted out upcoming errands and filed away my folders for the night, I added this piece to the collection of prints coming up for sale as wall art and greeting cards. It actually started out as my son’s idea and it is brilliant. This one is another trip into the fantasy genre.

Why not escape far away for a while before we head someplace new and have to do all of that un-fun grown-up stuff. 🙂

Clearing Out the Clouds


Above is the message sent out to my Instagram followers this morning. Right now, my Instagram account is just a close group mixture of friends, family, and clients. So, of course, they get to know everything first. If you’d like exclusive updates like this one, just pop on over to the CardCastles Instagram and hit the follow button.

As for things here, just like the above message states, #SleepySundays will resume in two weeks time to its normal scheduling. In the meantime, you may see a bunch of pieces moving and shifting about in the clouds. I assure you, this is all part of something much larger than CardCastles itself and when the full shift is made by the end of 2017, you will start to see the changes.

Everything will begin to operate from one central hub — here. My services have become a sort of small business in about a year’s time, and this place is going to start to reflect that. Thank you for being so patient with me with these ever-changing cards I’m dealt.

It’s been a fantastic journey. I look forward to the months ahead. Brace yourselves. There is so much more to show you this 2017.

Moving On

There’s a great number of things coming to a close these days. My own life is no different. With change comes a certain need for adjustment but, I think sometimes we’re better for it in the long run.

As I discussed the upcoming school year with my son yesterday, I asked him “Are you ready?”

The little one then replied with something I think we all can take note of at times.

“Yea Mom, I’m movin’ on.”

My son is only five years old. (Won’t be six until August) Yet, this little guy seems to hold more knowledge in him than a lot of us as adults.

~This one’s for you little guy~
