ahhhh, & grrrrr...

Ahhhh- I have finally loaded "the" banner pictures & Grrrrr- I just don't seem to be able to layout my posts like I'd like to... I wanted a little blurb between photo's but it's still just too complicated for this little gal! "Little Gal" that is what my manfriend (I just can't call him "boy"friend, he just turned 50 for cryin' out loud...) calls me & since the rest of us are SOOOOOOOO (hee, hee) much younger than him it just cracks us up! What a good sport this guy is...



So, I've had the MAJOR awakening to the fact that there are SOOOO many "others" like me out there! I'm finding that i could spend my entire day just reading blogs by other artists/artists-mom's/& just plain "outside the box" thinkers. Boy, my world was pretty small! If only we could make an entire state just for us & if we do... may I suggest HAWAII?! The only problem I see is that if everyone else is as unorganized as i am & poor at math... it could be total chaos!



I found this fabulous book of boxes at the very fabulous TARGET (one of my true LOVES). Not only is it fabulous it was on CLEARANCE & I am totally in love with that guy - Clearance! Tons of little punch out 2 sided boxes! ok, there, I got the picture a LITTLE more in the spot I wanted... See that beautiful little red sticker on the bottom right? Yep, clearance! Why did I buy this? Well, when I opened my etsy store I had this idea that IF & WHEN I ever sold something I'd throw it in the mail... that delusion was quickly thrown out when I saw what the fabulous Danielle Thompson was doing for packaging for her etsy shop (tiny bazaar). You can see what I mean on her blog... BROTHER! I am obsessed with what this woman is doing (in a non-stalkerish freakish way!!). I remember her when she submitted pages to scrapbooking magazines & totally fell in love with her style, one of those ladies that should totally live in my artist state of Hawaii!! So, anyway, I quickly realized that a pendant wrapped in tissue paper & thrown in a zip-lock wasn't going to cut the mustard. Don't think for a sec. these boxes are the solution to the "perfect packaging", but... for now it will work - ESPECIALLY since I've never sold anything in my shop! ha! But seriously, I am not going to be upset (yet), I just haven't had the time to devote to totally working the shop. On Sept. 2nd my darling will head to kindergarten & then i have dreams of being SUPER CRAFTER...
WOW, what a long post, I'm so proud of myself & possibly the only one reading it... make me famous, pass my blog on to everyone you know!! They will love & thank you! Oh, i kill me!
Have a great day & go make some art...
