I haven’t forgotten about you…

I swear. I think about you every.single.day.

I have been bound (and gagged) by horrible grown up stuff like…cleaning and signing leases and paying bills. Yuck. Short story with zero periods: Our lease is up in July, the same direction our rent is going, we were going to move, I cleaned like one does when preparing to move (as in, hauled ass cleaning EVERYTHING), I created a donation pile so large I will have to make multiple trips, decided not to move, everything is nice and clean, and I have been doing much artwork since. Even some things to sell! Woohoo!

Tonight I quickly sketched out a drawing for an eventual painting I want to do for our living room/Manbearpig Cave. Hopefully the painting will be done tomorrow when the Husband is gone. Then I will hang it in said cave so when he comes home, he can “oooh” and “aaah” and all of that stuff people REALLY into action figures do.

Please note that the current figure has 3 hands and some seriously twisted features…he will be losing 1 hand and his features will be restored.

Wonderful Little Things…

I have nothing of interest going on so I wanted to tell you about something/someone that interests me

A few months back I met Courtney, of Wonderful Little Things. I was on Craigslist hunting for the perfect seating to use in my home studio and she was selling this attractive, simple daybed that I just had to get my grubby mitts on. Which I did. In the process I not only gained some seriously kick ass seating, but also met a fellow creative cat and that just bumped the whole deal up to Awesome.

Courtney has an Etsy shop featuring several of her hand-painted ceramic dishes (multi-purpose what!), a couple hand painted wood frames, and a hand painted pendant. The point is everything is hand-painted. My favorite bit is not only are the paintings free hand, but they have a mehndi look to them and, really, when does that ever go wrong in home décor? It doesnt, thats when.

Because I can be somewhat of a tightwad, I enjoy reasonably pricedeverything. Her items are really reasonably priced (possibly under, in my opinion). The bases are structurally unique on their own, so having ornate designs well placed on top really makes for attractive pieces.

Earlier this year, Courtney began collaborating with Green Market Girl on Eco Cuffs. Courtneys designs appear in the Muse collection and adorn these eco-friendly, attractive, and well priced wrist cuffs. Love it!

So, while youre surfing the webs, hop over to each link I posted and see whats up I kinda, sorta think youre going to dig what you see
