Tuesday Night Crafties

So yeah. I have the Tuesday night "Crafties". I assume you could get the crafties any night of the week, but today was a particularly beautiful day in New York...and the neighborhood was full of color. It inspired me to get started on the little ones...

I swear. These have been on my mind for months! I'm so happy to finally have them started. They will be all be tidied up and ready to go for the fair on Sunday, AND added to my Etsy shop. I have more magnets, cards, moleskines, journals and prints in the works too...but that's for another post!

I can't believe I'm not tired...it must have been the iced coffee...and the crafties...

Another Manic Monday...

So...what do I have planned for Monday...hmm, let's see...

I've got a date with the gym, I have to take a trip out to Long Island, buy more supplies and then it's back home to prepare goodies for the Astoria Spring Fling Market. From what I know of this market it is the first Indie Market in Astoria Queens, which makes it extra special!

I have to get going, but in the meantime...here's a glamour shot of "Obamaniac".

Happy Monday!

Back On Track!

Oh my, oh my! How long it's been! I went into the city to retrieve my baby from the doc and she's feeling nice! While she was away, I got an iPod Touch and attended my first gallery opening for my first show in Long Island City! Whew! In-between all this I've been working really really hard on building product for the artist fair I will be in this month...my first! by the way.

The show, entitled "Zeitgeist 2009", is now up at Art-O-Mat Gallery in Long Island City. Here are some pics from the show:

There were so many people at the show, but I guess in all the mayhem, I didn't take out my camera as much as I thought I had. I will have to search my digi cam for more pics...

...and if you look at the pics from the last post you can compare them to the pic of the finished painting above. Like I mentioned in the other post, it kind of happens as it happens and I'm really happy about how it happened! HA!

...aaaand besides everything else, I'm back in the gym. Uy. More soon!

Oh Boy..Oh Boy...

So, as I'm getting ready for my first fair...and a group show in Long Island City, the screen on my computer develops a rather intrusive white bar running right down the middle! *pfft!* I just got the screen fixed a few months ago. I'm off to the Mac Store on 5th Avenue today to have a "Genius" tell me what the dilly is. Hopefully it's a free fix...but either way I probably won't have my comp for a whole week! What shall I do! I have quite a few Moleskines to list...and cute lil' magnets too! *pfft* I guess it'll all have to wait till I get the comp back. Between the fair and the show, I've been completely swamped.

...but here's a sneak peak of the rather large piece for the gallery show.

It's coming along pretty well, but I rarely sketch...so this is a totally organic experience. The pieces create themselves. They pretty much tell me what they're going to be. I just wield the brush!

I will be sure to post updates to all of the happenings coming up in the next few weeks! Hopefully I can get online before Saturday!

Enjoy your Holidays and the week to come!

P.S. Pray for my Macbook.

A Little Under The Grey Weather...

So yeah. I've been feeling a little crappy for the last few days...but it's nothing a little soup and crafting wont fix up! At least my PhotoEz came in and I was able to make a great stencil along with the cutest new Moleskine! The Moleskines (and other related projects) will be added to my shop this week!

See you soon!

Clouds on a cloudy day...

Well, my Photo Ez just came in Friday afternoon, but it was very cloudy and rainy in New York today, so I guess my experiments will hate to wait. :(

...in the meantime I started working to package my little lovelies from my last post and managed to print some of these, inspired by this rainy day:

Ah...I love Moleskines! So convenient and pocket sized. The illustration is in reference to the optimism we all must keep in our hearts right now...and I must admit that I've kept one for myself. I couldn't help it! They're up at the shop right now...and lookin' good. Happy Saturday!

Magnetic Appeal

So, as I wait for my presents from the post, I've been drawing like crazy, writing down ideas and busting out these little goodies.

I hope to have them in my shop by tonight...granted my little photo shoot goes well. Cross my fingers!

A Slight Bit Flighty...

I was featured this month on a great blog called Kiirey that devotes itself to finding beauty in art and craft! I was actually featured under my other shop name Gordonica. The Blue Peacock piece featured became a building block for GINNIP!

...and my Photo Ez hasn't come as yet. *pfft* Stay tuned...
