This week has FLOWN by for me... I woke up & couldn't believe it was Friday!
To show you I REALLY have been busy, here are some goods that will be in my etsy store soon:
(I say "soon" & yet, I couldn't even get online yesterday...Grrrr!)
Here are some of my "Cutie~Cupcakes" in their vintage tins:
Cupcake in Red & Turquoise:
My friend, motherof5, was kind enough to let me know that Pantone has declared TURQUOISE the color of the YEAR for 2010!!
Yippee for TURQUOISE! (& don't you know this blog doesn't have a decent turquoise!)
& then some paintings...
I haven't painted in years & am still trying to "find myself". I was tramatized in art school by my crappy Prof. (you know who you are KH!). This week I learned a guy that was in my painting & drawing class died of a heart attack. We knew each other, but I wouldn't say we were friends- just the kind of guy that was in class with you & you said "HI" to when you saw him on campus. I do have 1 very fond memory of him... We were in a drawing class, which REALLY wasn't my thing & our crappy Prof came over to my project & YELLED "you're kidding, right?". He then went on to belittle me in front of the class- NICE hun? Especially when my parents were paying BIG $ for me to go to that college! After class Jon came up to me & said how sorry he was & if KH would have yelled at him like that, he would have cried. He was proud of me for keeping a stiff upper lip. A real nice guy that leaves behind a wife & 3 young kids...
Anyway, here are a couple of painted items:
a little clipboard that can be used as a piece of art, or you could clip a picture or note to it!
Here's some homework for you: i have GOT to get this great room painted & I am so stuck on what color to paint! I know, I know... turquoise! I think this room a little TOO big to do all turquoise, it's my kitchen, dining area, & living room with NO breaks, it has to be ALL the same color! It's off my yellow entry way... I like electic cottage & am NOT afraid of color. Any ideas? Any good design links?
Have a GREAT weekend
& share the love- send my blog onto a friend!
