Hi All, So I'm in the middle of my big move so I won't be able to post for a while. I apologize for that but I do have some new tricks up my sleeve as soon as I can get my s*** together. So hang in there, check back often.

*smooches* and will post soon.

Tuesday morning

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 :)

Sunday Afternoon

Happy Sunday all. So far it's been a lazy one for me. I did have an early start to the day but I'm in slow motion. I suppose that's what Sundays are for :)

My mission to finish packing is complete. Just a few things left, but that is stuff I need up until my moving day.

So I watched the first 3 movies in the Harry Potter series. I actually hadn't watched any of them (nor have I read any of the books despite the fact of receiving one from a friend). I'll put that on my 'to do action list'. I actually quite enjoyed them, although I did find parts to be a little scary (how do kids watch that? ;)

Right now I'm sipping a fabulous cup of organic chai tea with some agave nectar in it for sweetness. Next, well, I'll probably do some more sketching. I've been playing with a few different ideas so that when I get my new studio set up (after my move), I can just get to work.

Oh I found something I really like on etsy this morning from Glory Daze I love the screen printed fabric pouch pictured above, so lovely. Please do check out her shop.

That's it kids. *smooches to all*

Mojito anyone?

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*

Lovely shop

This morning as I was checking out etsy, I came across Cate Angel's shop full of print goodness. Totally affordable art and I must say all the women Cate has painted, stunning.

Not much going on over on my end. I'm getting ready for my move (I've mentioned a few times now) so I haven't been painting or posting to my shop. It's empty :( So sad. BUT after my move, I have some new tricks up my sleeve. I created a new shop on etsy which I'm really excited about. I wanted to change the name of my current one, and for those of you who are familiar with etsy know that once you pick that name, you're pretty much stuck. Anyway, I will post more information as soon as I get the new shop up and going :) It's so exciting!

Alright, day job time. *smooches*

Seriously, do I have a problem?

I keep looking and looking for red! Red! Red! Mwaaaaaaaaa...

So I'm a little crazy this morning. It's Monday. *YAWN*

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Studio M's shop. There is a lot of great art work at completely affordable prices. Check out her profile while you're there, it's super cute. It put a smile on my face :) <---like that, yes. Above is one of her prints, it's lovely and yes, it's has red in it.

Oy, I have a problem.

And more red...

What an awesome sushi plate from Jennelle! It's fantastic.

The last few days I've practically lived off avocado maki. I'm addicted. I can't seem to get enough.

Hope you had yourself a great weekend. Happy Sunday night darlings.

The obsession with red continues...

as does my quest for a red toaster. Apparently they are popular little buggers since every store I've been to seems to be sold out (well except for one display model that looked like about a million people put their greasy paws on it ;) Sooooooooooo...I'm still looking for a red toaster.

In other news, I was surfing etsy for more red goodness and came across Ola Designs beeeeeeautiful pitcher and cups summer set (pictured above). It's so lovely!

Alright, that's it for now :) *smooches*

Red toaster

I'm on the lookout for a new toaster. I want a red one this time! No more boring white or fancy pants stainless steel....I want RED :) Here is one that I'm contemplating. It's from Cuisinart and it's beau-ti-ful. (Pic is from their website).

Turquoise and Red

I've used these two colours together in my own stuff (paintings, greeting cards, etc...), but I don't know, I'm so in love with them again. I went on a mini shopping spree for my new place. I bought a bunch of turquoise and red items for my kitchen (pictures to come).

So while I was touring around etsy, I noticed that one of my favourite shops Simply Modern had a set of 4 prints for a very affordable price using these exact colours. Ohhhh I want them so baaaaad! :)

Sweet dreams darlings.

Check this out

What a beautiful print from Lily Moon. She has tons of great prints in her shop and all at very reasonable prices.

So it's a stormy night where I am, it's super HOT though. I hope the storm helps cool things down a bit. I'm all for hot weather (I love it!) but this is insane!

Time to read a bit, this is perfect reading weather.

The cutest little bag...

This purse comes from Little Odd Forest. It's so totally adorable, it's taking everything in me to resist buying it right this second! :)

I haven't posted in a few days, for that I apologize...it's been busy on my end. I'm preparing for yet another move (hopefully the last this year), and am recovering from a little minor surgery (no worries, I'm fine and I have three little stitches, so that means I'm going to have another cool scar! ;)

Happy Sunday night everyone, hope you had a good weekend.

New Series

Above is the latest painting in my little flower series I'm working on. The inspiration came from a while back when my best bud and I decided to paint some flowers using ink. I took it a little further and used gouache to add lots and lots of bright colour. I really like the simplicity of the series so far (I will post more as I finish), but most of all I really love the colour. I've been a little down lately so I've been trying to use extra bright colours to cheer myself up (it works, trust me). Hope you like!

New Pattern!

As promised, here are pictures of my pattern assignment. I designed and printed everything myself. Let me know what you think! :)



Happy July 4th my American friends :) Hope you enjoy your day off! In Canada, we had Monday off for Canada day.
Sooooooooo...I found this beautiful blue bowl on my morning stroll through etsy. It's by J. D. Wolfe Pottery. I'm a sucker for bowls, I have lots hanging around my place. Check out J. D's shop.

So last night I had my last silk screening class, it was fantastic and I'm SO happy with the results of my repeat yardage assignment. I did take some pics which I hope to post tonight.

Alright, time to get this party started.

Tuesday morning

I'm back to work today after a loooong weekend...I'm a little tired but I feel pretty good :)

I was looking around etsy this morning and came across The Art of Miles Histand. He's out of Portland, Oregon (I *heart* Portland), and the colours he uses are really beautiful. Check out his work.

Alright, day job time.

My apologies!

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!
