I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaack :P Lucky you! :P tee hee
So my move went extremely well, better than I expected. Everything is really falling into place for me. I'm still unpacking and trying to set up the ole studio but it's coming along. High 5s all around! Yay!
Soooooo hang tight!
Also some news: I will be starting a new blog called The Shiny Black Shoes (which is also the name of my new etsy shop), so stay tuned for that. The new blog will be used for any new work, new projects and basically anything I'm loving :) (note: I won't be updating this one anymore after I start posting to the new one so I will post a link here so you can head over).
Well my darlings, that's it! *Smooches*

I've been feeling a tad lazy lately when it comes to the ole blog. I have really had to force myself to post. My problem seems to be that I struggle with content. I mean, I always find great artists on Etsy to write about and for the most part like to write and share my own work. But the truth is there is so much going in my life right now, lots of change that I'm finding it difficult to get into the right frame of mind.
Anyway enough belly aching...things will get back to "normal" probably by the end of next week...soooooo...hang in there :)

My new obsession...the mojito! :) I've decided that everywhere I go, I'm going to try their mojito :) That should be fun.
I've got nothing really to post today. I haven't had time to look around etsy. I've just been continuing to pack as I move in a week and a half.
Sorry for the boring short post, I promise there will be more interesting things to come.

That's red spelled backwards :)
The earrings above are from Aran Made. She creates enameled jewelry as well as letter press cards. She attends the Penland School of Crafts (nice!), and really does some nice work.
It's Wednesday, half way through the week (wow, time is going by supah fast!), I started sketching last night, I'm playing with some ideas around the Blue footed booby. In the past, I block printed these super cute seabirds on to greeting cards but I think I'm going to get more into illustrating them. Honestly I just think they are so damn cute. Anyway it feels good to be drawing again after a few weeks of feeling uninspired and a little sad. But things are looking up now and I'm feeling really great and pretty happy these days :)
Anyway, enough of that, I suppose I should try to get some work done around here. Day job time. Ciao. *smooches*

I'm so sorry for not updating the old blog the last few days, my home computer has been acting up again so I had to call in the big guns to fix it (my bro, thanks!! :)
Tomorrow I will be back up and running, posting all kinds of my favourite goodies. Until then, tons and tons of smooches!

OK, so I completed the story board for each of my ideas. The fabric I will be printing on is a tan coloured linen, as well as a tan coloured cotton. Here they are:
#1. The inspiration for this idea came from Gustav's "the kiss". It's my interpretation of a small portion of the pattern on the woman's dress. I would print this on the tan linen using the hot pink colour you see in the pictures.
#2. The inspiration for this idea came from, well... my own sketches. I use this image (the three flowers) for greeting cards. I would print this in the avocado green you see pictured here.
#3. The inspiration for the last design idea came from one of the exhibitions at the Portland Art Gallery during my April visit out west (Oregon). I can't really remember what piece it came from but it was my interpretation of something that was carved into wood. I would print this using red, again on the tan linen.
Well, I only have time to print just one of the patterns above. I think I may go with the first one but who knows...we'll see when I get to class. That's just the type of girl I am.
It was a crazy weekend full of bbqs and father's day chaos. BUT I survived! Unfortunately I didn't get a lot of work done like I had planned but c'est la vie.
SO tonight I have to get going on my design ideas for my repeat yardage assignment. I'm excited about that, I have some ideas, so hopefully they translate well on to paper so that I can shoot my screen tomorrow and start printing (silk screening).
Oh one more thing, I've posted about her before but I have to tell you the work that Ali J has been posting in her shop, Aussie Patches...SO awesome! I love it. Check out one of her newest illustrations above.

I bought this cute cameo pin from The Black Apple. I love it. Presently it resides on my purse, guarding the jewels :)
This gocco print I purchased from Sugar Loop. *I really need to get me a gocco*

So...10 sketches, right? Right. I must warn you that I got into the port wine (my favourite Taylor Fladgate), so they are messy but I'm happy with them. Messy seems to be my personal style of drawing (and other things too, ha-ha).
