I obviously failed miserably at keeping my New Years resolution to post more on my blog… Ive also only been to the gym once this year and that took a lot of peer pressure. Ive been absorbed with applying to Grad School, projects for my children’s school and an attempt at learning how to relax and taking some mental health days (that last one is slow going).

The good news is that Ive been accepted to the Philadelphia Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) to obtain my Masters degree! Woo! Starting this summer I will be going back and forth between Savannah and Philly doing grad work, which I am thoroughly pumped about.

Ive also been invited to participate in this years “Tiny Trifecta” at the Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn opening June 6…. I will be there toting children and all so I hope to see some old buddies that weekend.

Some things Ive done (or am doing) lately:

I made this psychotic hat for one of my children, as they need a hat with one hundred things on it for their 100th day of school.

I was tied up for a moment there.

My New Years Resolution will be to update this more often. Although maybe it shouldn’t be, because that pretty much guarantees I won’t do it. Theres been a lot of good and a lot of bad. Ill catch up by … Continue reading

Upcoming!

Getting on an airplane after not leaving my house for close to three weeks and having little to no interaction with people over the age of five is probably a terrible idea. Especially since flying in a plane is my LEAST favorite thing ever (over dental surgery, cleaning up an exploded diaper, sand gnats…. I could go on, I really hate flying)

ANYWAY

Im going up north! The best part is Im taking part in the Cotton Candy Machine’s fourth annual Tiny Trifecta and will actually be able to attend… if you are in Brooklyn you shouldn’t miss this amazing show, and say hi if you happen to be there. Im over the moon over the line up of artists that will have work there…

Creature Comforts

New Painting! Things been going slow lately because a recent bout of strep throat (for the billionth time) and our dog is apparently epileptic (he explained this to us in a very scary display at one in the morning, and confirmed it after many blood tests the next morning) so its been a fun couple weeks.

Speaking of dogs and the joys of taking care of them, this painting is going to be up at The Butcher Gallery as part of their “Creature Comforts” show. This show is to benefit the Humane Society of Greater Savannah and features artwork in various media from artists all over Savannah. Soooo if you like art and want to see this one in person, like animals, and like complimentary refreshments then this show is a triple threat for you. The opening is this Friday, February 21st from 7- 10 at The Butcher Gallery (19 East Bay Street, Savannah, GA 31401) a link the the Facebook event page here

*side note: the entire time I’ve been trying to get this information out, my three year old daughter has been in the doorway mooning me, while my four year has been yelling “you’re stinky” over and over. I should probably be worried at this behavior, but I’m just so tired.

End of the Year Wrap up

I think the craziness of the last month of the year was appropriate for 2013. It will be forever remembered in my mind as the “year of extremes”… the best worst year ever.  December was terrific however, and Im glad to end it on a high note…

Big crafty was great! Thank you so much to everyone that come by my booth… I gotta say I love Asheville…

Theres some new jewelry and lots-o-prints… heres a few things you’ll find…

Also speaking of Monday and Recreate I will be there (10 W. Liberty Street) from 10-6 tomorrow, so swing by if face to face shopping is more your thing.

Dont forget to mark your Calendars for December 14th as we will be participating in a Holiday Hop in the Heart of the District along with Gallery Espresso, Fabrika, Red Clover, Perry Rubber, Oillie Otsun, and more!
