NEWS: new homepage, new blog + new events

First...THANK YOU GEORGIA!  Georgia spent ALL day with me yesterday!  We started with yummy breakfast at Penny Cluse with a trip to the store for caffeine and then hours and hours of crazy successful work on all things YellowDog Art related.  We scanned images, we improved the homepage, we fixed links, we researched moo cards, and upgraded this here blog!  We also assembled a yellow couch (cute as hell, G!), rearranged furniture, made plans to shop and then had a late dinner at Tiny Thai.  I will spare you all the details of our trip to Tiny Thai.  EXCELLENT food as always but some of our co diners were beyond inappropriate.  Please, MISS DAISY!  NOT WHILE I AM EATING!  So, again, thank you Georgia.  For a wonderful and successful day.  Oh, and Georiga.  As another form of thanking you...I will NOT post the best pic you ever sent me.  Yes, the one that involved a finger puppet, your middle finger and a bad day at work.

Now lets get back to the new stuff!  What do you think?  If you are reading this, you obviously see the new blog.  It is not complete but it is getting there.  Like it?  Easy to read?  Easy to navigate?  Comments are wide open (for now anyway) so tell me what you think.  Sorry, the less than stellar digital pictures will still be making an appearance due to user issues  :) 

Now the new YellowDog Art homepage!

Ok, not totally new because I love the home page Georgia previously created for me.  We just improved it to meet my needs now that I am further into this process.  I love it!  Check it out, try out the links.  Let me know what you think.  The green color is carried throughout to tie things together (and because I cant get enough of it) and the font is fun but easy to read (and Georgia said it makes her think of my actual handwriting!).

The idea is that my blog and facebook will be the go to places for YellowDog Art news, artwork and (hopefully) all around fun.  Eventually my etsy store will sell my cards, postcards, stickers, etc.  Flickr will be the place to see all the photos that do not make it to my blog but might interest you.  If you attend any of my events, you might catch a glimpse of you or your pup!  And ofcourse the homepage (and all links really) are an easy way to find contact information for anyone interested in talking about a fun project, an art donation for a non profit or a possible commission.

And just a quick heads up!  The Humane Society of Chittenden County is holding their Annual Meeting on Thursday, April 28th.  They will be displaying artwork of different mediums from four local artists.  Yours truly has already dropped off her pieces.  They will be mounted on the walls at the HSCC, photographed, and auctioned.  The auction kicks off this Thursday.  I will post the link to the auction and the length of the auction as soon as I can.  50% of the sales will go to the HSCC!  My pieces were all made specifically for this event.  They are BRAND NEW images to canvas.  I took some of my favorite images that I normally do on my greeting cards and put a version of them on canvas.  There is a definite theme so pop over on Thursday evening to check them out, grab a drink and see the wonderful work the amazing people at HSCC do!

There are lots of things going on and I cant wait to share them with you as they progress.  Send me an email and let me know how you think things look.  Or just say hi  :)
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.  Enjoy this weather while you can!
