meet the thumbuds

i think that creating artwork is just like having little babies.  we give birth to new ideas, nurture them, watch them grow......and sooner or later, we take a deep breath and let them go out into the world.  such is the case with my little "thumbuds".  these little guys have been a part of me since i was in school and doodling in my spiral notebooks in class (instead of listening to the teacher....)......

and now all of these (many) years later, they've reappeared in a more sophisticated form.....on notecards.... and they're ready to go out into the world!  if you're interested in adopting any of these little sweeties, they're currently hanging out in my etsy shop.  their main goal is to put a smile on your face, and they're fairly easy to take of.....as long as you have a steady supply of dark chocolate on hand when mealtime rolls around.....

happy weekend to you!!!

Cute, cute! So I rushed right over to your shop to grab a couple to send off to my best buds. I goofed and didn't leave a message to seller, though :(, so this will suffice: Thank you!

They look even better in person! Perfect for any occasion, whether it be a message of "happy sunday", "congrats on your new boy!", or "want to go dancing?"
