Artsy Fartsy

Remember how I said that last Friday I got hit by the art bug?  Here are some canvas boards I painted.  I don't even know where this came from.  And, I know they are way amateurish but it was so awesome to sit down with my cheap brushes and my craft paint and just get it out.  I don't even know what "it" was but I know I felt so much better when I was finished.

I made these along with the Mason Jar Soap Dispenser.  I have no idea where I will put them but I love how random they are and how I didn't even have my computer on for "inspiration".  I think they are great representations of my style because I have no defined style.  I love so many different things that I can't just close myself into one category.

You know how you visit some shops on etsy and people just have it all perfectly matchy and so put together?  I just can't be that way.  I have even seen shops where there are only 3 colors.  The shop looks great, by the way, but how on EARTH can anyone just pick 3 colors?

Anyway, I've rambled enough.  I also wanted to share some snippets of my calendar in use by a photographer.  It was gifted to her and I stumbled upon her Instagram account because someone else whom I follow liked the picture.  When I realized it was my calendar I became absolutely giddy.  Here are the first two months of January and February by photographer Charlotte Hu.

Today I'm cleaning the house, doing laundry and filling all open orders.  I want to chillax this weekend with nothing to worry about!

Being that "Nemo" is in town (though he is proving to be pretty docile so far)  I think it'd be great to spend the weekend making more things.  It's a great excuse to lock myself up in my studio and play with all the little goodies I have stored away in jars and boxes.  We'll see what happens...

Stay safe and warm!  I hope Nemo is nice to you and I REALLY hope he doesn't knock down the poor ailing tree that is in the front of my house.  That poor tree used to be so strong and beautiful.  But after so many crazy storms it's looking kinda frail.  Pray for our tree y'all! ;)

Keep it SWEET!
