Has anyone tried to send me an order by clicking on the email link in my shop?
If you have and I haven't replied, let me know. Some people have said it isn't working...but I don't know!! I would never ignore you!
Paul and I got to take a much needed break and go visit my mum this weekend. Not only did we see the rare and coveted "GO JIT" truck on the way, but we also got down to some serious thrifting at the hospital auxilary shop in town.
HMM. This angel seems a bit worried...
If they made shoes as lovely as this for grown ups, I would so totally be wearing them right now.
Remember back a few months ago I was taking a pottery class? Well, here are a couple of things I made. All in all, I was a bit disapointed with it. The glazes were like water and ran all over the place. We were only allowed to make small things. I had hopes of tall thin bottles...
AHHH, it is a beautiful day outside! I will need my mittens though.
Speaking of mittens, Karina's Lost mitten Projectis where your lost mitten may be. She has been collecting and cataloging mittens from all over, for the last 2 years!! It is a wonder to behold.
The Christmas Craft show dates are up, for anyone in the Toronto area.
Illustration Friday: Vintage
Thank-you so much for all the nice comments in the last post!! You all really cheered me up! I am always so blown away by what a warm supportive community I have discovered here, where I never even knew one existed.
It's official, I think in my brain I feel like I am not "working" when I make all this fun stuff. I have sort of put illustration on the back burner for these months leading to Christmas, while I make all these items to sell at the four craft shows I am in. ARGH! Why can't I just enjoy myself? It is fun, and instead of feeling great, I feel all anxious, wondering if the place I have reached in the illustration career will totally evaporate if I neglect it for 2 months...Sometimes I wonder if I have what it takes. I can't keep up with the constant promotion schedule, the calling of people I don't know. When I do get jobs, these tasks are easier because I am buoyed up by a burst of self confidence. I feel like I am getting too old to be relying on some magazine calling me, to keep me feeling good about myself. Sometimes it doesn't matter, and other times, it matters way too much. I also shouldn't forget that these are moods, I dont always feel like this. It is Wednesday after all! The mid-hump of the week, the "where does it all end??" day. Aahh, and writing it all down always makes me feel better.
I would love to see some of your desks, on "International take pictures of your desk or workspace day", coming up on Friday the 12th! I am going to try and take a picture every 12th, just to see how my space changes. I have a bit of an archival side I guess. Since I was 20 or so, every birthday I go to the photo booth for a picture. I think I missed age 22, but I took the photo later on. Now that I am coming up to 30, it will be neat (or scary!!) to look back on the last decade. How on earth has a decade gone by...
I forgot Illustration friday!
"Search" was a hard one! I am going to check out what other people did.
While checking out everyone's "search" pictures at Penelope's Journal, I found Kim! I have never met Kim, but I have seen her lovely cute work around my city for years and years. An ex boyfriend once even gave me one of her magnets, because our work is similar. Hi Kim, if you are here! I tried to leave you a comment, but it wouldn't work. I'll be visiting again soon.
Feel the love.
