Three Muses & FREEBIE "It's All About the Hat"

The challenge this week at Three Muses is "Moonstruck." The entries were so fantastic that I'm hesitant to post one myself; I just hope I can stand up to the competition! Here's my entry,
"Marvelous Night for a Moon Dance":

Really, you've got to grab some coffee (you'll be there a while) and go check out the other artists: popular request:

THE BAD LIZARD: Well, I've contacted shelters and rescue homes as far away as Bloomfield, Connecticut (that's at least 80 miles from here) and so far NO ONE is willing to take T-Rex (the psychotic twenty-pound iguana) off our hands. Yes, I know, it's shocking; you'd think people would be lined up around the block just hoping for the chance to own their very own demon lizard, especially one the size of a baby alligator who bites, hisses, and tail-whips anything that comes near him. So I'm still stuck with the reptile from Hell... but now that I'm back in school I'm hoping I can find a brave/reckless 20-something boy willing to try and tame the crazed beastie. One of the (very Goth) boys who sat next to me in Drawing last semester has a tarantula, so maybe he needs a psychotic twenty-pound iguana to round out his private Chamber of Horrors?
THE GOOD LIZARD: Meanwhile, my dear sweet Will, who has been terrified of reptiles all his life, is now routinely sitting down at night to watch Chris Matthews and hand-feed grapes to the (good) lizard in his lap. Godzilla continues to labor under the delusion she is a dog; she even sits up and begs!


Here's a new collection of Crowns and Silly Hats (no pointy hats; I'm saving them for the Halloween collection, coming SOON). You can download them FREE here:

Come back soon! Hugs!


  1. I just love your art work. Thank you for all your wonderful freebies. I am using some of your faires in my blog banner. It shoud be up soon. Check it out.

  2. Re your friendly iguana- I had a few pets along the years that I gave to zoos and universities - Boa constrictors (they just got TOO BIG!) and 2 Coati Mundis (one bit my ankle and mangled it - lots of tears and stitches!). Perhaps a local zoo will take it? I know there are reptile zoos all over the place, and some universities or colleges might like to have him as a display in their science building. How about as a display in a local high school? Good luck!

  3. Your moondance couple charmed me completely. I do so love your art, Tammara! I wish I could offer a solution for your iguana problem, but "iguana" take a pass on that one.

  4. Love your colorful "moon dance" interpretation! And appreciate the lizard update too! OMG, I totally lost it when I read the post. It's funny, but it's NOT funny. Good luck finding a new home for him. RE Lindart's comment - Yup, sounds like he'd make a great display only if he's stuffed! Thanks for the great "freebies" too! Hugs, Terri

  5. Your moondance couple are hilarious Miss Tammara, I just love your sense of humour and your style of art. Keep 'em coming. :O)

    I think the only situation to your lizard problem is to save up your money and buy a new house and don't tell the lizard your new address.

    Thanks so much for the freebies, I'm finding them a blast.

  6. Love your moondance couple,thankyou for the great freebies!!

  7. Your blog is such a joy to visit. I love your "Moondance" which is gorgeous, so creative and beautifully executed. Your lizard story is priceless. I have small lizards invading my house from time to time. I think they are more scared than I. I usually wrap them in a tissue and place them gently outside.

  8. Thank you! Your blog post will be advertised on the DigiFree Digital Scrapbooking Freebie search engine today (look for timestamp: 12 Sep [LA 03:00pm, NY 05:00pm, UK 10:00pm] - 13 Sep [OZ 08:00am]).

  9. It will kill you to know that i want a lizard and T-Rex would be perfect! [My hubby said i can have one when i burn half my access weight]But i live in Aust :o(
    Have you advertised in the papers? Pet shop windows?

  10. Your moonstruck entry is beautiful and funny! Like it a lot.

  11. Thank you so much for this Freebie. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Hands Scrapbook Freebies Search List, under the Page 9 post on Sep. 13, 2009. Thanks again.
