Once in a while I make something without a uterus...

I've been wanting to make something like this for a looong time, but never could figure out *how*.

Until yesterday.

New Painting!

Well, it's very much like some older paintings, but only inspired by the same idea. :)

8 by 10, acrylic on board.

Man, I miss painting! I'm hoping to get back into it soon.

Sales or "temporary price adjustments"

So every once in a while something expires on etsy. It happens, listings are only up there for 4 months (renewing aside).

I just noticed that a handful of really cool things expired. So they're back, but cheaper!

It seemed like a good idea or something.

I feel like, but with hemp necklaces. I love making them and buy the best quality hemp around in bulk. Every once in a while I sell them wholesale to the Hemporium in Keene, NH, but usually they just hang around until craft fair season.

Therefore, this one is now cheep. For you, little chickadees.

My cat and I just spent some time in the bitter outdoors. She sniffed things and meowed at me. I practiced ultra-cold hula hooping with a sweater.

A sleepy day for all...

Today was just one of those days I guess. Sure, some wonderful, weight-lifting things happened, but the majority of the day was so tiring. It seemed like very few people were having a *good* day.

Perhaps that's what happens when spring gets off to such a miserable, cold start? The wind has been destroying everything in it's path and most of us are hiding indoors from the bitter cold.

Still, there are great things to look forward to! My life should change dramatically within the next few weeks/month. (don't even start thinking that I'm pregnant or something, nothing like that)

I'm holding a tiny promotion in my etsy shop at the moment... well the next 5 moments or sales to be precise. I visited hbml last week and purchased a small handful of really awesome handmade 1 inch pins. I'm not going to tell you what's on them, as that's part of the surprise! I kept one for myself though, it's pea-green and says "candy inspector". (I love it because I hate most candy... just give me dark chocolate or espresso beans wrapped in dark chocolate and I'm happy. Or pure maple sugar candy... Plus the pin is an amazing color)

So the deal is, free special, secret pin with the next 5 outgoing orders from my shop! The reason? I like supporting hbml! You should come to worcester and check them out!

Also, a artist-friend of mine might be stealing some shipping envelopes to decorate. I already decorate every single package that goes out, but these would be extra-special one of a kind original pieces. I'll be sure to update when I have more information regarding when this might happen!

Happy bitterly-cold spring time everyone.

Sharkweek/Wet feet

V-day was fun, thanks to everyone who came out! Too bad it was pouring in providence, RI that day. I'd never really been to providence and was so excited to walk around, check out the local shops and eat some delicious sandwiches. (I love delicious sandwiches)

Unfortunately providence seems to lack storm drains, and one thing I absolutely HATE is cold, wet, sneakered feet. The roads were flooded up to 6 inches deep in parts, specifically the parts between me and the car. :( It was a sad, wet-footed day.

I'm hoping to return to providence soon on a dry day, because I got the impression it was an interesting place.

Since then I've been adding new things to etsy, crazy amounts of new things. Something like 20 new items? I'm not even finished yet.

My favorites are the new red uterus earrings and pendant.

I'm calling them "Sharkweek Red".

Yeah, definitely have to make more of these.
