It's true. Songbirds, geese and whales may be heading north this time of year, but I am heading SOUTH next week on the first day of Spring. I'll be leaving six months of soggy Northwest gloom behind and will be hoppin' down the bunny trail in search of sunshine and desert wildflowers and cottontail cuties. I am delirious with anticipation.
Have I mentioned that one of my favorite things to paint is desert flora? Not to mention desert fauna... I hope to come back with a camera full of reference photos for brand new watercolor paintings and a surplus of vitamin D in my system!
I will be closing my SusanFaye Etsy shop and my CurioCabinet Etsy shop on the evening of Sunday, March 18 and will re-open the shops nine days later on Tuesday, March 27. All orders placed by tomorrow (except for special request items) will be shipped by Tuesday. My Imagekind and Cafepress shops will remain open.
BIRD FEEDER REPORTStudio assistant Buttonwillow will be staying behind to enjoy a "stay-cation" of cat-napping and bird-watching.
