DIY Halloween

Part of our decor for the party last night were 'family portraits' of all of our friends. We displayed them above the candy bar and everyone took home their picture when the left.


So, our Halloween Party was last night and we had so much fun. We fed our friends a lovely dinner and drank lots of wine; danced a little bit and summoned the owl that we are trying to get to nest in our owl house. It was lovely. This morning when I woke I immediately started thinking of the next things on my calendar and now I'm a little overwhelmed.

November is fastly approaching. There is so much going on for me that month (work & play) and a lot of prep going on for these events. The East Austin Studio Tour is around the corner and so is Blue Genie Art Bazaar; both of which i am participating in. Well, actually, I'm "unoffically" on the E.A.S.T. tour...but my studio-mates are and so I am a 'guest' artist there...come see my studio & buy art!!! It is November 22-23 from 10am-5pm and features over 100 galleries and studios that are open to the public for viewing and perusing.

Then Blue Genie starts two weeks after that. this one i am 'officially' in. It's a 22 day shopping extravaganza for all things Austin art! Sooooo much fun and so much great art. I'm going to have plenty of notecards and prints this year to help those tightening their purse strings.

had a good day yesterday...

Saturday, October 4, 2008


i was just cruising through Etsy's blog, the Storque, and found a piece of mine in a related article. cool.


i finished the invite for our Halloween party. i'm pretty pleased with them. i ended up over thinking the entire project, getting very confused as to which version i should send...but this is the compromise. i'm not one to use a drop shadow, but it seemed to fit for this. it's mounted on a black card.
oh, and then i found this invite, which blew my mind and decided to change everything at the last minute, but DJ talked me out of it (for this year). i LOVE printing on transparency film, so this inspiration might end up helping me for the 2009 party.

warning...some verbal diarrhea might occur

after the shitty ass nightmare of a Tuesday got joyously marked off my calandar (in RED and after 2 margaritas and 2 glasses of wine), i managed to have myself a pretty decent Wednesday (considering I am still in shock and my stomach turns every time i think about said Terrible Tuesday). i took Denver hiking on the Greenbelt, wrote some necessary letters and ended up at the studio where i actually got some stuff done! yay. oh, and lined up a little bit of work to provide some sort of cash flow. so, all in all, okay day.

i am currently drinking my tea, then will go hiking again and venture to the studio for a repeat of yesterday! yay. here are some crappy images of the work i got done yesterday. some not quite finished, but i'm still really interested to see how this series plays out.
