Holiday Bazaar Postcard 2014

First and foremost, don’t forget you can find me this Saturday at the Rockin’ Around the Holiday Bazaar in Round Rock, TX. More details here, and you can RSVP/share the even here. I’d love to meet some of my blog readers and shop fans in person! You can print off this postcard and hand it in at the entrance to be entered for a door prize: Secondly, Annie’s Artist Lookbook did a wonderful surprise write-up on me and my shop,… Read the rest ⇒


Bits & Pieces

Bits & Pieces

1. Three-day weekend coming up, woohoo! And then once next week is finished, I have a little two-week staycation/break from work scheduled so I can turn 30 in peace and get some much-needed down time. To say I’m looking forward to it would be an understatement. Anyone want to hop in with a guest post for the blog while I’m away? I’ll schedule probably TTT and maybe a book review, but blogging will be sparse those two weeks (Oct. 20-31)…. Read the rest ⇒


Double Down

The AC Vent

Today, I officially become a two-blog gal. I used to have a blog on my freelance site, but it went dark a while ago because I just didn’t know what to write/how to blog/how to keep up with it. I feel like writing Dragonflight Dreams the last few years has taught me some of that, and I actually have ideas for it now. So I’ve brought The AC Vent back from the dead. You can find it here, if you… Read the rest ⇒


5 Things Friday

5 Things Friday

1. The puppy is high maintenance for the next two week. She got herself an ear infection, and also apparently dogs get seasonal allergies just like humans do. So we have an ear cream, a special shampoo, prescription pills and Benedryl. And most of those have to be attended to twice a day. Yeah. Fun times over here. Sienna is not loving it. I keep telling her she’ll love it after her ear and itchies are all better. She remains… Read the rest ⇒


Busy Little Bee

Gold Clover on Green Tee by Dragonflight Dreams

Now that the craft show is past, I’ve been attending to a lot of the other to-do list items for my shop. First up, I’m finally getting photos of the made-to-order shirts on an actual person! Witness: Yeah, that’s just me wearing them. I never know what to do with my arms. I only have photos of the size mediums I had printed so far (note to self: always print a size medium for the example shots for made-to-order shirts),… Read the rest ⇒


Taking Stock

Sienna does not think taking photos of her is a productive use of my time.

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot. Making : a few more prints for this weekend’s craft show. Cooking : nothing at the moment. Will probably have leftovers for lunch (spaghetti). Drinking : water. Reading: The Furies by Mark Alpert. Wanting: to do too many things at once. Looking: at the computer screen, out the window, and occasionally at the pup at my feet. Playing: I was playing Two Dots, but I… Read the rest ⇒


New Prints

8-10-bubble-seahorse

Well, I finally got around to photographing all of the new prints I’ve been churning out for the upcoming craft show. And listings have started to go up in the shop. Here’s a peek at a few: More will be coming as I work my way through the photos. I took something around 1100 photos (for over 100 prints total), so it’s a bit of job, to say the least. I’ve got another big batch I want to print, so… Read the rest ⇒


July Shop Charity

Greenpeace

In case you missed it at the start of the year, one of the things I’ve decided to do with my shops this year is donate a portion of all sales to charities or causes that I support. July is host to UV Safety Month and Parks & Recreation Month. Since those are all about the great outdoors, I’ve chosen Greenpeace to be this month’s beneficiary. They are the largest independent direct-action environmental organization in the world. You might know… Read the rest ⇒

5 Things Friday

1. Currently sitting in my office while the A/C guys put in a whole new air conditioning system. Yeah. It crapped out Wednesday, only blowing warm air. Not the ideal situation when it’s 90 degrees outside every day. We have (had) an old system to begin with, and any fixes they did would have been temporary at best, and just need fixed again in a few months. Since Ian is tired of dealing with having to get this fixed so… Read the rest ⇒


Taking Stock

dream-wall

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot. These pictures are all things I see from my desk. Making : more stencils to continue playing with this new-to-me screen printing method. Cooking : waffles, sometime this weekend, to take our new waffle iron for a spin. Drinking : French vanilla cappuccino. Reading: working my way through Northanger Abbey (a modern Austen adaptation), and also Archon (a YA paranormal). Wanting: to just curl up… Read the rest ⇒
