Love is in the Air.....

Hi Friends!

It's actually me, here, on my blog! I know, I know.... it's been a while. And by the way, Happy 2016!

I'm just popping in for a very quick update to let you know that I will be hosting a Secret Love Bug Sale for my Mailing List recipients this weekend. It's not scheduled. It's spontaneous because it's a small collection, and I just finished them! I've been juggling this original character set with special orders and several different licensing projects. Therefore, I was uncertain when this collection would be complete. So, setting a scheduled date was a little too scary for me.....eek! Anyway, they are almost ready to release, winged and ready to flit and flutter their way into your hearts. I'm working on their graphics, Secret Links and Newsletter now.

If you are not on my Mailing List, you can simply join HERE. Keep an eye on your inbox over the weekend for my Secret Sale! I will eventually post the sale on my website for all to see, but the sale will debut as an email event via my Newsletter.

Thanks for your loving support!

xoxo,
~ Johanna

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!


Wishing you a Merry Christmas from me and my frosty friends to you!


If I haven't said it enough, allow me to say it again. THANK YOU for your dear support, admiration for my art and kind remarks along the way. For those who travelled from both near and far to visit us at a show this year and share my art with friends and family, many thanks to you as well! It is a JOY to be on this creative journey with you. My wish is that my art brings you countless years of smiles and delight.

Hugs & Happy Holidays!

"Iggy Frost" the Penguin ~ Silent Auction


If you're like me, you love the vision of a baby Penguin! Watching them frolic brings such joy, and these animated characters remind me of winter magic, generating curiosity and many smiles. As they live so far off on the icy edges of earth, we tend to bring them to life in our imaginations and hearts. So, in honor of these enchanting creatures, I was inspired to create a one of a kind penguin candy container for this holiday season. As it turns out, he's quite charming, and I am rather partial to sweet Iggy. While placing a price on my art is always a challenge, I have decided to toss that snowball to you! If you are interested in "Iggy Frost" please EMAIL ME with your Best Offer. This is a Silent Auction, and I will be accepting your bids for one week. By Noon this coming Sunday, the 13th, I will update all bidding participants via email with the highest best offer along with an invitation to place another bid. The winning bid will be determined the following day by Noon EST on Monday, December 14th, and the winner will be notified via email.

If you are fond of Iggy Frost, I suggest you place an early starting bid to join in my email notification loop. Then, if you wish, on Sunday you will have 24 hours to top the highest offer before the auction ends. I appreciate your bids of affection and support! HAPPY FROSTY WINTER!

PS: Don't forget that I'm also hosting a Frosty Friends Web Sale on this Sunday evening too!
