Illustration Friday: Clear

This weeks Illustration Friday theme is clear. I love interpreting these themes and relating them back to impressions some of my pieces have left on me. This piece's title is Float. The idea of 3 people floating on a lake having a picnic on a clear Sunday afternoon, fully dressed up, makes me smile. I partly wish that we had these kinds of formalities in our rituals today, but the other half of me is glad I wont ever have to sit in a tiny boat in a bustle. LOL. I guess I want history, with logic and sweatpants!

Felt Club this Sunday!

Bummed Etsy is down for the weekend??? Well I have a solution! If you are in LA and looking to do some indie craft shopping this weekend, come by and check out the Felt Club! There will be 2 dozen vendors all showing off their wares, including Darling Design and Hotdog n' Bun!

Shop News!

This weekend Etsy will be offline so that the much anticipated switch from Beta to V2 can be implimented! I am so excited to arrange my new shop in to categories and make it easier to navigate! So at Midnight EST tonight through Monday morning my online shop will be unavailabe. Seems like the perfect time to introduce my new Holiday Shop! The new shop is chock full of Christmas cards, t-shirts and sweatshirts, journals and tote bags. I can personally recommend the organic tees and the totes. I carry mine everywhere! Right now, through November 19th, you will receive 25% off all ornaments and cards! Yeah, thats right! Time to shop!!

What a week!!

Sorry to be MIA this week, but holy moly it has been a big one! So many things have come up, I have been clamoring to get everything accomplished AND be ready for the Felt Club on Sunday!

First off, I had the pleasure of meeting Vanessa De Vargas, a.k.a. Turquoise, this week! Vanessa is an Interior Designer and contributing writer on Apartment Therapy: LA. She was also recently featured in the New York Times! (We were both written up together last week on decor8! )What an awesome lady! I went and checked out her store on Abbott Kinney and let me tell you, it is gorgeous! This weekend Turquoise is showing off her skills at the 3rd Annual West Coast Style Show at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium here in LA. She is designing a huge dining room/living room space and she was kind enough to select 2 of my pieces to include in her rooms! This is a HUGE event, starting off tonight with a benefit sneak preview in honor of the Lupus Foundation. It is open to the public Saturday 11-7 and Sunday 11-5. There will be lectures throughout the days and vignettes by lots of renowned LA designers. Tickets are $10.00. If you are into design, this is sure to be a stellar weekend!!!! I will be checking out the scene on Saturday morning and will be sure to take lots of pics if I can!

OK-lots more to come!! Be back in a bit!

SPC Glamor-wk 1

So last week, on Halloween, my SPC was all about my non existent desire to dress up for Halloween, but later that evening it seems that something happened. I am thinking it may have been a little too much wine, at least that is the story I am sticking to! I decided to be a kitty while answering the door, and painted my nose black with eyeliner, which apparently doesn't stay put on your nose either! (I don't know about you, but my eyeliner and mascara are always all over my eyes at the end of the day! Which is SO glam!) We had a bunch of friends over and while relaxing after a long evening of door answering and dancing around we all started switching costume elements, and I must say that I kind of miss being a blond when I see this photo! The whole look is just too much fun! And yes, kind of glamorous!

So if you haven't figured it out yet, this months theme for the Self Portrait Challenge is glamor. Prepare to giggle and laugh. A girl covered in glue all day sees very little glamor! We shall see what I come up with!
