I finished my 8 X 10 inch canvas of real pressed flowers, leaves and greenery depicting the EDGE OF THE WOODLANDS near the water. Months of work design and layout to fixture to completion with a multicolor blue acrylic paint to finish the project is what it took to have this beautiful picture for show and to sell. It is available for purchase at www.gnormyle.etsy.com Much love went into this one as is always the case.
It all began in a garden!

I love the Fall time....leaves are changing....it is cooler and crisp! Saturday morning waking up later than usual and you step on the kitchen floor tile and it bites back. Time for socks and slippers. The gardens are so colorful now with the smaller leaved plants being changed quickly by the cooler nights now. Whole trees have changed and they dot the landscape. A quick trip up North yesterday and you could see Fall everywhere in the foliage. My shop at www.gnormyle.etsy.com has taken on the Fall theme. The Black Eyed Susans are so bright right now.

I was fascinated to discover that a huge group of shops all from ETSY only are listed at this mall on the internet....makes sense you go to one place and you can find many nice shops to visit. So the following link goes to my shop listing
I am amazed at the many different ways you can promote your shop. So if you read this and you have an ETSY shop join up. Also check out the AWE TEAM button and join the firstfridayartwalk on ETSY.
The picture is of a bracelet I made I call it cracked ice. I am thinking about putting some jewelry I make up for sale in my shop....the only thing it is such a hugely competitive field. It can't hurt to try a fun PIF or two though. Glenna's Garden www.gnormyle.etsy.com

The first leaves are already turning I have noticed. We are due up here in NH for some cold temperatures the next couple of nights and that will really get things going. Today I received a huge lot of fabric. I am truly amazed at what I have to work with now. I have already made some fabric bookmarks and they will be listed in my shop soon. Today it is cool and going to rain definately. The sky's are dark now. So I will have to wait photograph them until things clear up. I sorted the fabric and gathered all the Fall colors togteher. I will put Spring and Summer away. Then I have silks in another bag. There is a bag of an assortment of gauzy bright fabrics. There is more larger various allotments of fabrics in a stack about two feet high. Meanwhile The Fall Collection 2009 is set to go now at Glenna's Garden check it out and enjoy your visit www.gnormyle.etsy.com

I found this beautiful ACEO created by Rita from my ACetsy Team. I so love it I asked her to reserve it for me. Check it out and let me know what you think.
I have started posting my Fall 2009 designer collections and pieces to Glenna's Garden at http://www.gnormyle.etsy.com and there is more to come. At the same time I have created some really cute ACEO's myself, a couple of which I will share with you on here. I love dimensional so I made a Back to School ACEO (pictured above) it is very much dimensional and my Christmas 2009 ACEO is also available for early purchase in my gallery shop. I am so touched this morning from a lovely letter written to me by a customer ~ at first I thought it was some joke then I read the letter again. It was genuine gratefullness for the happiness I was responsible for in a stranger's life. From a husband about his wife to me. As an artist/designer/photogrpaher it means so much to me to receive thanks for something I have created.

Yes today is the day. The article is out. Myself and my teammates from NH ETSY STREET TEAM are all over it. Please take a moment to read the article. I am sorry but the link to my blogspot which is here obviously is incorrect in print, just unfortunate. However if you do find this note from an artist, designer, photographer from Manchester, NH you will be able to see my blog. I prefer to call them notes. I do try my best to post often but I am going through a big healing process. This has been the best rehab for me. I have been through seven surgeries in the past 3 1/2 years. I have battled cancer in muscle and I am surviving. I am currently living with both fibromyalgia and RSD aka CRPS which are both nerve conditions one in your muscles and RSD is from an injury I sustained. You will have to highlight and paste this link to the article
