exciting news!!!

so i'm happy to announce that I'm in the process of getting things together to open up my own etsy shop. Right now it looks like it'll include some embroidery patterns as well as embroidered items. Some jewelry. Handmade necklaces and maybe bracelets. Thinking about adding some online classes in there and maybe some of my photo prints as well as artwork. I'm fairly excited about it and I can't wait to get it started. Hopefully when school starts i'll be able to add some screenprints. okay that's it for now. toodles!!!

so i know i haven't been on in awhile so update:

my dad went to mexico for the fourth of july and beings that i've really been into hand embroidery I told him to get me some patterns from my grandpa's general store. He got me some but Im'm guessing my grandma took it upon herself to start the pattern off for me. Bless her heart.

I also went to a screenprinting/sign graphics/ embroidery expo downtown yesterday and picked up some nice little things that I could use as props in a photo shoot or as home decor. Like these 8" plastic diamonds. I aldo scored some seashells, a bulldog, a couple of letters to spell out art's name, and an ice cream cone....oh the uses of free stuff.

so as of late, i've been really into painting. I never did very much of it but i'm learning as i go. Start small on 8x10 and 9x12 little canvases. So one of my schoolmates sent me an email about an artwalk in frogtown and i thought that that would be something exciting to do. All i know right now is that it's August 20th so i better start deciding if i want to do it and get a moe on it.
About the painting. it's on a 9x12 panel and it's done with acrylics. It has a little secret meaning that I hope for art and I and our future together.

So I went to a dodger game last saturday it was my first time. I should have made a little sign or banner or something. Now a little background on me and the dodgers. I never really liked them. I would always talk smack about people who liked them and whatnot but now that i've actually been to a dodger game, i think i'm a convert. The atmosphere is soo friggin' awesome. People yelling and failed attempts to start the wave, which involved me once and my heart started pounding when it came to us. I was so scared but now I enjoy it. The only thing i can say that I DON'T enjoy is the prices and the ridiculous wait time to get out of the parking lot but i think that's everyplace right???
How has your week been going so far?
