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.

So long 2012

After a small break to deal with the holidays, some personal calamities, and some sort of cold/ flu death spawn that has invaded my face and lungs… I am more than ready to say goodbye to this past year. It was a weird one.

BUT Santa (or my amazing Aunt Debbie in this case) did come through and I found THIS under the tree

my very own torch

my very own torch

yes.

Also… I have a few new limited edition teeny prints available at Recreate now and will be up at my etsy shop tomorrow… They are small, printed on Rives BFK, affordable and easy to frame at 5×5″ and 5×7″… (signed and numbered)
