Happily Ever After Art...

I've had a few requests for Wedding Sunshines lately which is ace! I love doing Sunshines for people, as I've probably rattled on about many times before, but to be asked to do them for Wedding presents and stationary is uber exciting and makes me feel mighty honored.

Anywho, I won't blabble on too much I'll just show you what I have been up to :) One Sunshine Wedding couple is for their Wedding stationary, another is for a framed gift and the third is to be used for a Wedding DVD cover. So many happy couples and a very happy doodled out Jo right now!

My Little Pony... with an awesome twist!

Not so long ago in a time when mini Jojo was running around, drawing on walls and chattering away to anyone who listened My Little Ponies ruled part of the Toy Market. In my eyes they ruled all at the time and although I only had a few of my own I loved them dearly!

My first My Little Pony was Peachy who came with the awesome little Twinkles, I remember unwrapping her on my parents bed one birthday morning and being over the moon! My second was Milkyway, she was very special, not only for the shiny stars and exciting blue streak in her hair but she was a unicorn. Just Magic!

Peachy with Twinkles & Milkyway

It's been a while since I've played with them I must say but I read this blog post at Spoon Graphics today and it's made me want to turn the house upside down until I find them! Not only are they My Little Ponies but they are painted, permed & pimped to look like some classic cartoon and film characters. I was just blown away by some of the creativity, imagination and pure skill here! I have picked a few of my favourites to share with you but you must go forth to Spoon Graphics blog post about the My Little Ponies customizations as they are amazing!

Edward Scissor Hands (Mari Kasurinen) Mr T (Jodi K. Moisan)

Batman (Amy Bell) and Poison Ivy (Mari Kasurinen)

I plan on fining my mini collection and maybe even buying some old ones to try and make a Hello Sunshine or other crazy Jo related Pony customization of my own :) Mwahahahahaha!

Germs, Jewels, Postcards & Festivities!

First of all I must apologise for my lack of blogging lately... the past month has been much of a glittery whirlwind and now I find myself succumbing to the germs and finally having to rest. It's rude really as I still have lots to get on with! Anywho... let me fill you in with a few bits and bobs....

A while ago now I submitted 4 of my bird-tastic pretties for the Postcard show at The Surface Gallery and on the 5th December the exhibition opened. I have yet to shuffle myself on down there but I have seen some photos and borrowed them from the galleries site to share with you... see if you can spot two of my cheeky little bird postcards amongst the other fantastic & beautiful submissions.

Talking of the Surface Gallery I shared a stall with my good friend April at their Christmas Arts & Craft fair which went brilliantly! Despite freezing my tootsies and other bits off I have a very successful weekend and it was the confidence boost I needed to back up my newest jewellery! I am a very happy bunny indeed and have even been out to pur-chase some nice smart black jewellery boxes and organza bags to add more shinysupernewandexcitingness to my work.
As well as being busy with craft fairs and festive sales, I have been creating a few sunshine commissions too which I always love doing. The below piccies w are of my most recent and I'm very pleased with them. Just hope that the recipients are as happy on Christmas Morning!
The last image is a work in progress hence the lame text attempt at the momento... finished pne to follow soon!)

And now for the pretties... Jo's shiny new pretties which were a kind of 'Hi-5 Me!' for all the work I've been doing Well that's how I justify it anyway... I'm sure you will all agree when you see the wonderful prettiness! Behold....

Ok.. so before you get bored and fall off your chairs I shall wind down. I fear I have a chest infection and as much as I'd like to ramble on at you evermore I must rest. So until next time, which I promise won't be as long, I bid you all Good Night!
