Hmmm, What's Up?

Boy, the comments on my blog have really dropped off lately! I don't know if people aren't reading anymore, or if I'm not posting frequently enough, or if everyone's just busy because of summer, or what! Have any of you experienced this on your own blogs? I'm so encouraged when I get comments- it provides me with the motivation to go do more art even when I'm not quite "feeling it", you know what I mean? That's why I love blogs so much- they really inspire us as artists to continue creating...

But, enough of that. Here is some art I did yesterday about Riley's first haircut. Do you like the Burger King hat in the first photo? I can't believe they still make those! I chose that for a "before" photo because it shows the little curl at the back of his head- I was sad to see that go! I'm just sad in general at how quickly he's becoming "not a baby" anymore-for some reason, the first haircut seems such official "proof" of that!

Next project I'm working on is for a trade with the talented Erika Tysse. I can't wait to see what she makes for me! I'll show the piece I make for her after she receives it!

I do believe it is a summer slump. The kids are home, vacations and such. Lori (Faerie Windows) and I were just talking about this last week:) Can I just say that yes the first haircut is bittersweet, but ohhh so cute. I hope you kept the curl. I found a book from the late 1800's last week and it has a small, blond curl sandwiched in the pages. So sweet. I love the pages you made. The blue is perfect and so is the crown:)

Love,Jamie

Your little angels are just adorable, Corey. You are such a good mom. They will treasure these books you are making for them! Jeanette

I'm so silly! I was so busy looking at his sweet face I completely missed the curl:) Perfect!

I will be visiting this summer. I am glad that I found your blog. Hey, don't you have a book that is either recently or soon-to-be published? I would love to hear about the process of creating a book.

yes i would agree we are all adjusting to the transition of school being out. less down time for sure. i'm glad you take the time to post. it motivates me to make the time to do art, or shall i say do something artistically.
loved the first haircut post. it's bittersweet with that cut, makes our babies into little boys.
love, marilyn

What a sweet little guy, love that curl!
I think all the Moms are having to share the computer with the kids more and that is cuttinginto their very important/theraputical blog surfing time. That's why the first thing I ground my kids from is the computer! tee hee!!!

My blog has had a drop in traffic and comments over the last month as well. I think it's just a summer slump, but of course that didn't stop me from whining pitifully about it on my blog a few days ago. (You were far more restrained than I.)

Hi, I normally just look but I thought I would comment for the first time. Keep sharing. It is so inspiring to see what other people are creating. I'm anxious to get my own art blog started. I have a blog but not an art blog. I love the crown too. There's nothing like being royalty.

Yep, summer is slow in blog land, but ever fret, the readers are still out there.. just slow. Love this spread about haircuts. I have some of my daughters hair in a bundle to save.. not sure what to do with it. I am not the documenter that you are!! Great work!
