I did this piece for the Voodoo Tattoo Expo in New Orleans Louisiana. I had a great time and even came home with some new ink myself. She is still healing but Micah,  who has been tattooing for over 20 years did and amazing job. I have named my new lace moth Eloise

Vintage finds for February. In all sizes!

Hey everyone! I went shopping for you again. It has been over 2 years and running  TOH and I am still excited to be bringing you vintage finds.I have been getting more and more emails asking to find not just plus size clothing but vintage clothing in every size so I will be doing just that. Naturally I will cater more towards plus size clothing since it is such a hard task but slowly I will introduce smaller sizes as well. I couldn’t model for you this time for 2 reasons. First off  because of surgery a coupe weeks ago that left me weak so I wasn’t feeling up to the challenge and second off I bring you smaller sizes this voluptuous body cant squeeze into (even though i want to badly!) The dress form is a wonderful addition to the shop. I would love to get your feed back on what you prefer though.

But for now here is what I have found just in time for Valentines Day!

Balsamine

 

Please welcome “Balsamine” to our family.

 

 

 

Balsamine represents the impatience of spring. This wild Maryland weather is such a tease for those who love the season.

She was created on a 14 X16″ sheet of Bristol and graphite. Like many of her sisters

She will be available on AlwaysApril soon!

 

I hope everyone is having a great night!

 

Happy Halloween…

The Keepers

Yep. You heard me.

I finally finished my Halloween piece for you fine folks. Merry Christmas.

The Boyfriend got me a lot of new art fancies, mostly pencils, because I enjoy that medium most at the moment.

This piece is a part of the twins/ hair obsession collection.  thoughts?

I hope you enjoy.

Also I hope you enjoy your New Year.

Always,

April

p.s. if you get this tattooed on your body let me see it when you and your artist are done.
