More stuff at Lucinda’s

I recently dropped some more pieces off at Lucinda’s, so these pieces are or will very soon be available for purchase there. The blocks look really cute resting on a pile of books or tucked in a bookcase, but they can also be hung on the wall. The canvas below would look cool on a shelf leaning […]

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is next week! Crazy, right? I can’t believe it’s already May, where has the year gone, etc., etc. For those of you genuinely surprised by my reminder of Mother’s Day who are now kind of stressed out because you haven’t even started thinking of what to do for your mom, I say, “Thanks […]

New Item & Some Sneak Peeks

Hey-yo. Recently added to my Etsy shop, a cute set of cards: There are 3 different designs included, and you can see all 3 designs here. Here are close ups of some things I’ve been working on lately. I’ll post more about them here when they’re done. Isn’t the anticipation fun? Another Lincoln:   Itty […]

I’ve mentioned before that when I’m working on new decoupage pieces I have a rotation of movies and TV shows on DVD playing in the background. I recently started wondering if the particular TV show/movie I’m watching has any influence on how the piece I’m working on at the time turns out. Here’s a diptych […]

I’m a chain!

No, I’m not a chain. I’m not even a store. But I do have some of my pieces in a store, and when I think about that in my head I say “I’m a chain!” like Truvy in Steel Magnolias. I think “I’m a chain!” is just a phrase to use whenever you’re very excited […]

ICT Winter Bazaar Recap

Hello! The ICT Winter Bazaar was this afternoon and I think that it went pretty well for my first foray into retail sales. Some of my very favorite pieces found some very nice homes, and I met some very nice people. If you’re here after picking up my card at the bazaar, welcome! And congratulations […]

ICT Winter Bazaar

So my slightly interesting news? I have a booth at the ICT Winter Bazaar on December 18, and I’m going to try to sell stuff. I’ve had the booth reserved for a few weeks now so I’ve been spending most nights at my table, hunched over, cutting out octopus tentacles. It’s really very hard and involves […]

Christmas Cards 2011

Hey people, I’m selling Christmas cards. Some of you have kids and are probably planning on sending out photo cards this year to show off those cute kids. But some of you don’t have kids, and some of you have kids that aren’t that cute, so maybe you just want to send out traditional cards […]

Hummingbird Take Two

Many of you already know this, but Todd and I are planning to adopt a baby from Rwanda. We started a blog about our adoption nearly a year ago and are just now posting again. We’re working on choosing an adoption agency and starting to raise some money. I’m going to be selling my decoupage […]

Bowling for Kids’ Sake

My good friend Vanessa works for Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Todd and I are once again “helping” her by joining her team for Bowling for Kids’ Sake. I’m hoping to raise more money this year than I did last year (and at least cover the cost of my bowling and pizza), so I’m offering […]
