Studio Boot Camp

after taking yesterday off, i am going back into the studio to do some more work. i got about 25 tiny paintings done for Happiness' Cactus Show this weekend and now i am going to work on some jewelry for Parts & Labour and Moxie and the Compound. Lizelle at P&L has been harrassing me and it's high time i get them something.

then, i'll paint again all next week. i'm prepping for installing lots of paintings at Kerby Lane Cafe in late August and my Online Gallery Sale on Aug. 3rd.

i'm also working on a collaboration with Vintage Trialer Supply for some promo. that's exciting and i appreciate Steve getting in touch with me!

and then, and then, and then...i could go on, but i'll spare you...for now.

Birds of a Feather

AAAACCCCCKKKK!! i HEART this trailer plate available here. don't be surprised if you see something inspired by it!

Hitch Couture

Another innovative shop.

Hitch Couture

Very Hush Hush

Via Poppytalk:

"shhhhhh very hush hush

Oh how cute! An airstream for a little shop. And such a cute name, "Very hush hush"! Fiona Richards sent in these pictures of her good friends, Tracy Fillion and Cathy Terepocki's gorgeous little store located in a 1964 airstream trailer. Fabulously retro-fitted to display their great collection of Canadian, indie-designed clothes, jewelry and home goods! Located and open all summer and into fall in Herridge Lane, Nelson B.C., Canada! (and if you can't make it to this beautiful part of the world, they both have online shops - thank goodness!):

Cathy's site and Tracy's shop."


I'm back from Houston, in fact I came home 2 days earlier than expected. I am currently on lockdown in the studio preparing a ton of tiny paintings for the Cactus Show coming up this weekend at Happiness.

i just got finished going thru 5 rubbermaid tubs and one trunk full of know, that stuff you never think you'll see again that collects dust in your parent's attic? field day ribbons, yearbooks, class pictures, fridge art, greeting cards from 1977. it was about time i did it, and oddly enough most of it was my sister's, which she will inherit this weekend when i make the trek to Houston. i wonder where my yearbooks are??

i have been busying myself with non-art stuff. My sister is 8 months pregnant and i have yet to see her since she moved home from her and her husbands 1.5 yr stay in Scotland, but this weekend i get to spoil her and rub her belly (against her will) as my mother and i are hosting a bebe shower. i've been making these pom poms to use as a garland. i also went to my friend Sibby's, from Juniper Hills Farm, so she could help me make some lavender scones for the shower. let me tell you , they are YUMMY.

i'm going to bed now. i'll see you later.

We had the best dinner last night with our Crap Shoot Critics club (a group of us who each pics a new restaurant to venture too). I highly recommend the Gold Band Creole and the pistolette rolls are to die for.

acupunture & broken glasses

we're back from our trip out West. we had a blast! it was extremely chillax and fun and NOT HOT! fantastic. on our way back, i accidentally stepped on my glasses and broke them clean in half. i was okay, because i had backups at home; only to find those were broken as well (i knew this...but had forgotten) i had to go to the cheapy glasses place and get some new ones. they aren't bad from being chosen off the "super savings" wall.

i've been experiencing some extreme right hand pain from overuse (mainly on the darn computer laptop mouse). i finally broke down and got some acupuncture yesterday. it helped, and i will be going 2-3x next week to help more. they even gave me some Chinese herbs to take (mortar and pestaled especially for moi).
