Here are the pictures!

I am including the group picture and my two favorites. I would like to live in a room with kiwi wallpaper!
And I like crazy daybeds!

New Artwork!

10 new little paintings are on their way to Louisville (Lou-ISS-ville or Lou-OIL-ville?) this week! They will be sold at an artsy/funky gourmet deli/grocery store.

I have also finished about 10 more artomat paintings, exciting. And, I have starting volunteering at an Arts Center downtown. Saturday I was an art machine and made a bunch of Christmas ornaments to give away for Christmas. Very exciting.

Blogger isn't letting me upload pictures right now. So, images to follow...

Even more artomat

I have finished more of my little paintings!

Mike took some artsy pictures of them after I stacked them on the table.

I only have 25 done, yikes! I have 25 more to do!
In other art news, I started working on another set of food-related interior paintings. So far I painted a kitchen with watermelon wallpaper and a living room with kiwi wallpaper.I have 10 of those paintings to do- I am painting them for a grocery/deli place. More pictures and info later!

I am starting my second set of artomat pieces- although I am off to a slow start! I am continuing with my peanut theme although I am making some of them a little more minimal. Here are my first few that are finished...

New peanut shirt!

I made a new peanut shirt! I decided to keep the orange one. I bought this gray shirt at Goodwill and I bought a size large so I wouldn't be tempted to keep it. After I take some more pictures of it, I will put this shirt up for sale at my etsy site. I am excited!

Black hair..

Though not for long! Hopefully. I talked with my beauty specialist friend, Ginny, about what to do about this mess and she said I should wait a week and then redye my hair since my hair is in a delicate state right now. Bummer. So, I guess I will live with this for a week.


This has been a very lazy weekend. Mike and I bought season 3 of The Office, so we have pretty much been watching tv all weekend. Although yesterday we also looked around downtown at some vintage/antique stores and I dyed my hair. The dyed hair may have been a mistake. I wanted darker hair, but black is toooooo dark. Anyway, here I am working on another baby hat/bowl..

Last weekend I was getting into embroidery, I made this tampon holder...

I think that it is very funny. Mike was confused, he asked why would anyone want to have a picture of a tampon on something that holds tampons, but I think that is humor! I am weird.
In other news.. I finally got an unbroken Swedish Horse lamp from Urban Outfitters! After receiving 3 broken lamps in the mail, I finally got a good one! I went to return it at the store downtown and they had one at the store! So I bought it but it was certainly an experience and I will NEVER order anything from Urban Outfitters again, they do not refund shipping! What a rip. Anyway, I love the lamp. Here it is..

Happy Labor Day

Today is labor day- so no work! I starting experimenting with my new gocco today. First, I drew a picture using my RISO carbon based pen...

I decided I would continue on with my peanut theme for my first printing attempts. Here are some of the finished prints...

I think the pink is my favorite. I liked the chine colle technique although it would have worked a lot better if I had measured and been more careful. Oh well- next time! I tried cleaning off the master screen with the special RISO cleaner and simple green, so hopefully I will be able to use this screen again. After I have enough stuff, I am going to open an Etsy shop. I have also been working on some knit headbands, ooh la la.

Painting project...

First I make a collage...

Then I do a drawing...

Then I start the underpainting with acrylics...
Then when I stop being lazy I will start oil glazes.

Newest craft acquisitions...

Knitting bee!! So cute! I had a boring red knitting tube thing, I don't know what they are called, but it broke. So, when my mom came to visit we went to Hobby Lobby and she bought me the bee and a sparkly pink knitting tube thing!

And for my most exciting purchase....

Peanut shirt/Guestbook

Since moving to Indiana, I have settled in and started some new art/craft projects! I have never really embroidered before, so this was a fun adventure. There is nothing on the front so I think I might add a little peanut on the front. Here are some other projects I have been working on...

I made this guestbook for my sister-in-law who is getting married next month! She is decorating with red hearts. I went to a bookbinding workshop in college, so I had made a few books before but I had never done the coptic stitch before. I made a little practice book first.

In other exciting craft news.. I bought a gocco! It came yesterday along with a instructional DVD. I worked on some sketches today and I think I will start printing next weekend!

I took pictures of my sketchbook/journal pages and added them to my flickr account. I am still working on my peanut interiors- but slowly.
