Sleepy Sundays: Dense

There is so much to tell you it definitely won’t all fit within the limitations of the “short but sweet” design of a SleepySundays post. Such rambling is better suited for a Daydreams Diary—so we plan on squeezing one of those in sometime soon.

While I juggle my folders with life, we’re busy planning for the upcoming 31Nightmares in October. I had to make a few business-related calls this weekend and while pulling some strings with friends, our October event somehow came up. One of my friends was exchanging some ideas with me and I stepped outside to notice a dense fog while we chatted. The subject of the paranormal came up and I’ve got to admit I got a little chill (a good chill) even though it was very hot & humid outside. All of that inspired this wall art design. Someone has already requested it for their living room. My resources are dwindling due to a few recent setbacks, but are slowly on the mend so I’m going to do my best to make that happen.

When was the last time you got caught in a dense fog? (Literal or figurative)

Have a creepy Sunday! 😀

Sleepy Sundays: Strangeland

This week ended with something that completely stopped time for me for a short while.

My phone rang out as I was getting out of the shower in a rush and it one of those phone calls that kind of makes you go deaf for a second when you first receive the news.

It was my sister on the other end. There had been problems in her relationship for a while now.

The phone call itself was no surprise to me but it’s results somehow still were despite their similarities to times passed. This rang especially true since this all involves my niece who is a product of this rocky relationship, and my blood nonetheless, despite difficult circumstances both my sister and I are now facing as a direct result of said rockiness.

She managed to find herself an attorney in all this mess. Just like my mother would have. This greeting card/wall art design was inspired by an early concept of characters I’m designing for my sister’s daughter, my niece. & They will later go on to be used as prints for others nieces and daughters and sisters, and mothers.

It’s been a while since we shared some music here.

Why not the perfect time. Sunday morning.


Have a peaceful Sunday. Take care of each other.

Our apologies for the recent closings.

We are still Clearing Out the Clouds to make space for Snapping Turtle.

The shift is nearing completion. I look forward to much more with you all this fall. Stay tuned!

Could you imagine walking past a place like this during the night? I took just such the stroll once in a nightmare. That walk inspired this art.


This has been Day 15 of
