that is a sigh of true contentment. i'm having so much fun with my etsy, it's positively unbelievable! i already have so many new ideas floating around in my head for new things to makes me giddy just thinking about it!

tonight, i'm playing around with a few new things...some do-it-yourself screenprinting, using some unconventional tools :) also, painting fabric and embroidery. much too soon to share these projects now, but soon...very soon.

another thing that is currently making me happy is this:

tonight i purchased a spot in rachel denbow's august online art journaling class. you have no idea how excited i am!!! i can't wait to get my secret password and get started! i've been dabbling with the art journaling thing for a little while, but can't seem to find my style. i'm hoping this tutorial will help push me in the right direction. i'll be sure to post pics of my finished project, which will be sometime in september.

busy bees...

we had wonderful plans for today....all week the hubs and i have been looking forward to a long and lazy day by the pool, sipping on iced tea and eating left overs from the fourth. so how did it go? well we woke up with the urge to actually be produtive...go figure. we've spent all day painting walls, repainting other walls, refinishing light fixtures, and many other things around our house. i must say, it feels wonderful! i guess it's time to get back to it!

oh yeah, and last night with brittany was oh-so-much-fun!!! once our project is complete, i'll have to post some pictures.

i'm on a roll!

two posts in one week! i'm on a roll! hopefully i can keep this up! :]

i've been in a creative rut recently, which is one of the reasons i haven't posted in so long. i haven't worked on anything artsy in quite some time, and i'm finally beginning to get that itch again. of course, with some great inspiration, it's not hard to get into the creative mood!

speaking of inspiration, here is a group of some of my favorite photos from one of my favorite...ok, probably my absolute favorite...artist to date...elsie flannigan. she is positively lovely.

i hope you enjoy this lovely eye candy...see you again real soon!
